Getting back on track with the thread---Since the pictures on the left are selected randomly why not change the manner of selection to be more link friendly? Move the mountain or Mohammed? What other methods of selection are available? Possibly have another area of the Forum where pictures could be selected from with linking available or imbed indicators in the pictures.

Well I would happily answer your question, assuming of course that I had the faintest idea what the question meant. :'( :'(

I do know a man that does though.......Tugmaster.....where are you??

Model Tug Man ...as you said in an early post ..."I believe it would require a significant change in the method in which the pictures are stored" .....this would be the case. As said before the folder where these are pulled from is just a simple folder with nothing else except images. The software that runs this Forum is somewhat limited to do what yourself and others request ...all images are just put into a folder with no additional tags added to them ...hence difficult to link them.

The left hand pictures were always meant as a taster as to whats on offer within the forum because "Guests" cannot see images within the posts. This hopefully encourages them to become a member.

I hope to come out with other ideas on displaying the vast collection we have, coming up to 6000 images !! ...hopefully, at some point, offering the whole lot on CD format in return for a small donation to the site......I'll also keep thinking about this idea of linking the pics

Cheers

My fault as I am not familiar with the S/W related to running the forum. I am an old hardware guy and a um manager now.

hey, no probs Model Tug Man, all suggestions to make the site better are VERY much welcome ! I'm still learning this software stuff and I'm certainly no expert ....I'm just a mechanical engineer in disguise really  :-[

 :)    I like the idea of offering the photos on a CD, maybe separate CD's for each of the forum columns, ie diesel tugs, steam tugs, pusher tugs, etc.
I sure don't have the time to check out all the photos available searching through the individual threads, but with the photos gathered on a CD it would certainly help see the beautiful models we all have to share.
