    I made my new facebook page public so thought it should be available for viewing but will look into flickr or similiar too.

    Thanks Bradbury, I will be posting the actual blog on the Emerald Waterways section (as requested by Cruise.dot) but this is a test section to make sure that I can post especially the photos.
    May I ask how are you getting your pictures on here, I can only use photo bucket so if there is a better way, I would love to know..Taffy

        I think Drewlin is up loading her photos to this forum direct from her Facebook account..

        It would appear she has also set up a separate fb account purely to cover her blog, but at the moment that is not open to public view, although I have a fb account, when I connect to the new Drewlin one, I also get the following message.

        "This content is currently unavailable

          Thanks Mrs M I am fully aware that this is a Cruise.dot forum blog but just was trying to find somewhere to store the many photos I am expecting Drew to take for the blog. I am in the process of setting up a flickr account and will post my photos to there (for easier access for everyone) but will also insert selected ones into the blog (wifi connection allowing). I am putting the bulk of the photos (in albums by location/date) into a separate account as I expect to have many (possibly 100's) so it will be easier for people to select and view any specific location in more detail.
          I didn't seem to be able to insert a photo from my laptop, using the 'insert image' on tool bar so they have to be uploaded to get a url so facebook/flickr or similar is also the conduit to enable me to do this. If I am going around the houses to do this, I am more than happy to be told a short cut.
          Cheers Drew and Linda

            Well done you. I've never got the hang of posting photos. We keep the photos on our computer not some 'cloud' or other and it just doesn't work. Life's too short, so I've given up trying.

              I have changed the setting on my new facebook page to public so should be available to facebook and non-facebook users (fingers crossed).

                  I am already a member and user of Facebook, but have just tried your fb link on your OP, and still get the following message

                      Although I changed the privacy settings on the facebook, I hadn't changed it on the album - hope it works now. Thanks to everyone for trying the links for me.

                        Well done so far Drewlin, your hubby takes very good photos so we can look forward to some nice treats from him. Yours is the hard part, uploading the damn things! Lol

                        It used to be easy displaying pictures on here, by adding attachments or insert picture, but hasn't worked for ages. Despite us complaining vigorously, nothing seems to have been done, hence it's down to those who know what to do, to do it, iykwim. So good luck with all that.

                        Good news, your link works now. Yay!

                          Great! Thanks for letting me know. I think that I'll go to bed now - job done.

                            Have resized this photo from 6.32mb to 41.9kb hopefully making uploading easier and faster

                              Since they changed the forum settings[ the time before the last change] I have never been able to insert any images direct to this forum, I have loaded my photos in FB and photo bucket and find I can copy and paste them on here, however to upload on the CD gallery is very easy I only wish it were so on the forum. good luck .
