    Kind of ironic that I should post here first given that my knowledge of html is only slightly greater than my knowledge of Martian life expectancy.

    However, pictures on the web can be posted by embedding html code in your post.

    To post a picture you need to type src= followed by the http address, and then embed the whole thing inside these symbols - < on the left and > on the right.

    I can't really give a full example because it would show a picture - but hopefully you get the idea.

    By the way if you post and see the code instead of the picture that doesn't mean it didn't work - the person who posts still sees the code because they can edit it, but everyone else sees the picture.

    ...until I get a better pic with some of the accessories installed.

    This shoud help:

    < img src=http:// (actual link)/picture.jpg > - leave out the spaces after/before the arrows and supply the actual link/location of the file (no parenth's).

    Can someone post a pic of a Quad Cab with the Safari bar? I'm interested in buying them, but I want to see it first installed on a vehicle. :-)

    Well I followed instructions, lets see if this works. Here is a recent picture of my Quad with a Leer 100XQ topper installed.

    I think you needed the letters "img " just after the open angle bracket.

    The pictures apparently must exist elsewhere on the web. Is there a way of embedding the pictures like can be done with email?
  • iowabigguyiowabigguy Posts: 552
    The img in front of the src= is what it took. Now how I got here. I went to Yahoo.com and first set up a photo album but I could only direct people to the index. Then they would have to log onto the site to see the pictures. While I was on Yahoo I found a path that allowed me to set up a home page on Geocities.com. Once I set up my home page (free by the way) I uploaded my picture to my home page. Once everything was set up I got the http:// address for the picture and the rest is history. I cropped and reduced the picture down to a final size of 640 by 402 pixels.

    Are there any 56K modem users who can tell me how bad the load time is for message 12? I don't want to clutter up the photo gallery if it results in extreme load times. I have a DSL so it is almost instantaneous. I scribbled my previous attempt to keep the clutter down. Rick

    It took less than 5 seconds to load this Topic = w/ all your pix - with my Mac 400mhz G4 56k at work. It took a bit over 10 seconds with my Mac 180mhz PPC 604e running a 56k modem through AOL - showing a 31.2 modem 'link' - at home. My Mac laptop - non-PPC version Powerbook 190 greyscale model - took about 15 seconds running a 33.6 modem that showed a 'link' of 28.8, so no problems loading with all three really. ps - nice truck.

    Rick, thanks for sharing your photos with us and for your all out effort to finally bring them to fruition. Great looking truck, but I hope you are not holding that young girl against her will.

    I gave up trying to figure how to post the picture of the truck only. <?*$#@!> Didn't want to plaster 10 different attempts on the board. Sorry.
  • iowabigguyiowabigguy Posts: 552
    You need to put img in front of scr like this img scr=http://www.geocities.com/tgrarm/photopage.html If you do that your picture will be shown. Don't forget to put the start < and end > brackets around the above.

    If you double click on the number of your message ie. #17 & #18 you will be given an option to scribble your message, this will erase any unsuccessful Attempts. I had to erase a few before I got it right. Rick

    I also had to redo my first message because I was displaying your truck when I typed my example. Rick

    If this is the way, will it show all images on my page? Is there a way to direct to a specific image on a page, or do I need one image per page?
    Thanks.

    My 4.7 with line-x and mopar side steps:

    tgr1 there should be a picture of your quad above if I did this right. You neglected to put the close bracket at the end of the string> I double clicked on the line with your geocities address and then when I saw your truck photo page (only one picture on the album page?) I right clicked on the picture and looked at the properties. I cut and pasted the address of the picture into the message and here is your truck. This is what I used for the address http://www.geocities.com/tgrarm/dsc_dakota.jpg

    I hope this helps. Once you get your picture up I'll scribble my message with your Quad Picture.

    Bonnie, This would be a good time to offer some
    suggestions on posting pictures. Do you have any
    suggestions on the best size to post. I uploaded
    my pictures in message #12 at 640x480 figuring it
    should display properly even on a vga only screen.
    I saw no evidence of skewed pictures on my display
    but it is 800x600. We are all learning here so
    please provide suggestions. Thanks, Rick

    Thanks for all your help. Yes, I made a seperate page with just the one photo of the truck. I'm sure lots of others are learning from my page, and your instructions. 120+ hits on my page in just 4 days! I think I should start charging for ad space.

    gallen1586,

    I like the painted fascia with the Chrome bumpers. Nice looking truck! Most excellent color choice.

    gallen1586, great photo and information detail. Actually, wonderful and talented daughter. Thank you.

    Anyone have a clue as to where 35, 36 and 37 are?
  • astaasta Posts: 122
    Hey gallen1586: nice photo! That's not a sport version of the truck, right? No chrome bumpers on that truck, I thought. So, did you paint the fascia yourself to match the red? Or did it come stock?
    ditto bookitty on the daughter - nice job.

    Thanks for the pictures, but I like the 00 Quad interior better.
