Trying to figure out how the images get inserted. I just did posted a thread in the Test forum toward that end. I got one image uploaded on there but I wanted to keep experimenting with layout. Now when I press the 'Insert Image at Cursor' button nothing happens. Any ideas?

Something is hung up. Log right out of Windows and log back in. Or just reboot.

Thank you Roger. That seems to have done the trick.

Sometimes the "Insert Image" interactive window will get buried behind your other open windows. If it happens again, start closing windows to see if it is hiding.

A "hidden" window will also thwart inserting new images. When you click on the button the window is opened in its "hidden" location, not apparent to you.

Is there any way to up load more than one pic at a time? It can take me hours to upload pic's and wright a trip report.

Not that I know of.

I write in Word, leave a blank line, then a photo name, then a blank, and continue writing.

Then copy the result into the edit box, and then start inserting, per the named images. It is tedious.

Hopefully Tony or Jay know some magic??

I host my photos on a pay-service (Flickr) and then insert the image URLs manually into BPL. It's slightly faster than hosting them through BPL but still a bit of a pain.

Especially a pain for alternate caching because the forum editor does not have a "URL Button", requiring you to type in the HTML code for each image link.
