That makes the pictures go into the post where you want. YOu can click on it to see the whole thing, but it's not great.

I changed it so the attached picture is inserted into the text as a thumbnail.

Here's a try of that:

That should be a small picture that will open into a mid sized picture when clicked on.

Here's a test of new inline feature. This should allow the pictures to be put into the text.

That was some text.

 
33grey.jpg


that was the first picture. Here comes the second one:

Does it work?

Adding your Layout Thread to your Signature

After you have created your layout thread, add a link to it in your signature.

Copy the URL of your layout post. Right click on this link https://www.train99.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=forumprofile;u=2

Then add the word layout to your signature and click on the Insert Hyperlink button (Second from left in second row) and then paste the url between the url tags.

It will look like this:

Code: [Select]
Layout: [url]https://www.train99.com/forum/index.php?topic=3.0;topicseen[/url]
You can add additional lines for other layouts and your introduction page.

While you're setting up the signature, you can also set up your website if you have one, or you can use that area to create a link to your eBay auctions. I set the link in the profile up with a link to my eBay auctions by copying the url of my eBay items for sale page.

Here's four more pictures of the layout under construction. This shows the track in place. This is all 072" curve  track except a few sections of 054 in the innermost circle. I have dozens of station platforms to put in the station tracks.

T2 is Terry's second account used for testing and instruction. This thread explains sharing your layout on the board and setting it up as a link in your signature.

For layout posts use one thread for each of your layouts. You can only post four pictures at a time and the picture size is restricted. Your camera assumes you want a picture large enough to look clear on a billboard. We don't need than that big.

Your phone might take fine pictures.

Before you write a post, take pictures of your layout and try to upload them to a new post in the layouts category. If you fail because the image size is too big, here's a report on modifying images along with links to free software:

Images 600 pixels wide seem to work fine for the board.
