    I am a supporting member of US message board--and thought that my attachment pictures would automatically be larger--(easier to read)--and that my video links would be the video and not just a link?

    It's not happening--is there something I need to do on my end? On other political sites I haven't had to do anything to re-size the pictures?

    I contributed last month to the monthly amount --and am a yearly supporting member--but nothing seems to be working?

    Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    Are you trying to attach the pictures using the attachment button, or the image button?

    As to the videos, are you using the hyperlink button, or are you pasting the youtube url in your reply?

    I am using what looks like the paper clip attachment link--and on the video I am just copying and pasting from Utube after I click on the share on the video youtube itself.

    OK, here's what you want to do.

    For the pictures, when you find the picture you want to post, right click on the url and select copy.

    Then come back to USMB, and click on the yellow square with what looks like 2 mountains on the second line. You will get a pop-up window, just paste the url into it and select OK. That will give you the full size picture.

    As to the youtubes, just copy the url from your browser address bar, and paste it into your reply here. The board software will handle the rest, and embed the video for you.

    Hope this helps.

    Nope. All of the pictures I post come straight from the internet. Mostly from Google Images.

    Thanks for you help--on my pics though--I usually just gather them up when I find them and keep them on my computer files--therefore there is no ULR. Is there anything else that can be done to re--size the picture--even just a little?

    Not using the attachment button. That feature only posts in one size.

    The only thing you could do is upload the picture to a site like photobucket and use that url for the image with the image button.
