Trying to put an image in my daily check-in. I think I've followed all the instructions on the site, but I can't get it to work. All help would be appreciated, please. :D

Okay, you have to have the image hosted somewhere on the Internet. (Flickr, picassa and several other sites have free image hosting).

Then all you have to do is have URL (web address) of the image. When posting the image, press the IMG button at the top of the post a reply box, copy the image URL, then press the button again to close the tag.

I'm happy to plop an image on my server and send you the url so you can embed it in the bulletin board (I've done this a few times before).

Just sent the image to me at:

Thanks everyone. I thought I had followed these instructions - I've put the image on picassa, copied the url and pasted it inbetween the img tags, but it doesn't seem to work. I wonder if I'm using the correct url. I'll try again and if not, I'll take you up on your offer Reinhard. Thank you :)
