Great little guide Nige!
Quick question........
I usually assemble all my long posts (for the build thread) in Word and then paste them into the "Add reply" box. I've started doing this after several really annoying moments when I accidentally clicked the wrong bit and lost all my text! :angry:
Once it told me there were too many pictures in the post so I had to reduce the number and post the rest in a second go. How many pictures can you post in one go? :huh:

It's also worth pointing out that for general stuff it's always a good idea to reduce the image size if it's massive, takes ages to load and view for people not on lightning fast connections. :thumb:

Any chance of a video one Nige? I'm in the process of trying to get my Cadwell stuff up but I'm sure I'm not going about it in the most efficient way! :lol:
