    I'm so lame. I don't understand forums. I've tried for years.

    What error are you getting?
    You go to journal, click post new thread, and when done post it.

    I think there's a minimum post count needed before you can start a thread, like 5 or something. It's a spam deterrent.

    Have you tried it without any links included such as pic URLs? It may just prohibit links Im not sure.

    Or just post a few times in this thread to get your count up, I think restrictions stop after 5 posts

    The error message wasn't specific or super helpful on why. I made sure not to have any links and I'm not 100% positive on the pics

    I do recall trying to add photos but having to jury rig it. I need to read up on posting photos on forums. I don't know what an "image URL" is.

    I really hope I saved that Journal somewhere. I can't remember how many tanks I recorded.

    The image's url is just the direct link to where it's at, whether its on an image hosting site or anywhere else on the internet. Right click on the image and "copy image location" or whatever your browser says, it'll be something like that.

    Then to post the image on a forum, paste the link in between [ img] link goes here [ /img] . Close the spaces I left after the first bracket

    Or, on this particular forum you can upload pics directly. Down at the bottom right you'll see the 'upload a file' button, it's right beside 'post reply'. This will open a browse window on your PC. From there you just go to the pic you want to post and click on it. Easy peasy :)
