    Tre Kronor.jpg

    Yes, it worked! I selected "Upload a file" and then selected "Full image" and got the preview...

    No Pic Preview? Here's a screen shot of this post with an upload attached. The boat isn't very visible because it's an invisible boat...

    Just tried again.

    What's the bloody question. I have no answer????

    Up-load a photo, Nope.

    Choose a photo from your album. Nope.

    Do any of the photos of the last 40 years of your life ever exist?

    Not sure on that one,:(

    Maybe you are looking for an upload window to open, like vB? Instead, XF opens a window directly to the files on your system, then click on the chosen file to upload. It's possible this window is popping up under your browser or another open program on your desktop. Try minimizing your browser and/or other open programs.

    How do I know if I have started a new thread or answered one? My posts don't seem to show themselves unless someone response. If I answer, it "hides" again. What am I doing incorrect?

    You are looking at new posts. That would be posts made by others since you posted. To see your posts as well, click on "recent posts". After going to New Posts you will find Recent Posts on the upper right hand side, just above the thread.

    Thanks Olderboater. Now... how do I delete one of my double posts? Delete doesn't seem to be an option in "edit", but I'm sure it there somewhere.

    BTW, how the heck do I get that coupler off?

    Delete shows up between "Edit" and "Report" but Edit and Delete are only there for a limited time.

    Your profile always had an avatar if I recall, but now it's blurry because it was originally 75 pixels squared. To fit the new 96 pixel frame, the system is enlarging your old avatar, which leaves it blurry. Upload a new avatar of approx 100 pixels (W x L) and it should be nice and sharp. If you don't have photo editing software, send it to me and I'll take care of it. :)

    Yes Carl I always had an avatar, but my avatar is now showing in an offset, smaller picture of my boat overlaying the lower right corner of the larger avatar. If I click on it, it shows my profile. Is that just me, or for the site to see??
