    I don't know if this has ever been covered here. I'm relatively computer literate, but don't know how to include photos or url's, links into messages. I've tried putting a pic/quote on my account info, but nothing comes up. Other then using APPLE as my computer (sometimes makes a differnce), I'm not progressing on this front. Any help appreciated. I don't think I saw any of this info in the tutorial/info section.......that would be a useful tutorial I think...... :?

    URL's are pretty much automatic.

    http://www.steyrclub.com gets converted to a link without any action on your part.

    For images you need a tag, and the image needs to be hosted on the net somewhere. Use the tag to insert your picture. the tag below is what I put in my signature to get the pic to show up. I added 2 astrix so that it would show as text and not pull the image.

    Try it yourself, cut and paste the above tag into your next post, remove the astrix's and see how that works for ya. If you want to post a different image, just put the full address between the [img] tags.

    in the Forum Issues section avatars and pics are covered.

    for links what i usually do is open a new tab in my browser, call up the bookmark and then cut the adress bar; close other tab and paste the adress
