Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I'm liking a lot of these options Smiley

Does anyone know how to make it a bigger size? Do I need to pre-shrink it so it doesn't go to a thumbnail??

You have two options ...
inserting an image that is hosted online by using the img tags from the formatting bar above ...


Or by attaching an image you have only on your computer.

So, you have to be logged in to see attached pictures, but not to see linked pictures ?

So this is just a bit more difficult than using a hoster.

The worst part about not using the poster is that the image does not appear in the preview so you can tell what it's gonna look like.  I do have that right, don't I?

Right, but when you upload the image (as opposed to linking) it should appear as it does when you view it locally.  Provided it is with in the limits for uploads.

Word of caution.  All images uploaded reside on our server.  While we have a pretty decent amount of storage it is not infinite (at this point).  As the forum fully comes online and traffic increases it will probably become necessary to remove old stored photos.  I have the option to remove photos by date or size.  Just understand that putting up a photo here is not a permanent storage solution.  As more and more photos are uploaded it will certainly be necessary to get rid of older photos to make room for new ones.

More to come ...

so will that be an automatic feature as it (space) is filled up?  Or will you manually have to go through and 'sweep', as it were?
