Quick Tips:
Click on the "Last Post" icon that sits to the right of all topics to quickly access the most recent post.
To stay logged in permanently or for longer periods of time, click on the login link in the navigation panel above the ads. This gives you more advanced login options than the "quick login" at the very top right of any forum page.
The top right area is very handy and gives you quick links to your private messages, unread posts, and replies to your posts
To change time zones and anything else related specifically to your account and/or preferences explore the "Profile" link from the top black navigation bar.  There's a lot of stuff you can tweak in there.
To post attachments or manage subscription options click on the "additional options" link below the text box when replying to or starting a new post.

You need to be logged in as a member to see attachments. Everyone can see linked files.
Title: HOW do I post photos here?

- If you are trying to insert an image into your post, you can try the Insert Image icon ( the B in the Post window allows you to insert the URL of a web-based image into the text of your post

BUT this is often flaky at best! Better still to use a text URL link

- To attach an image to the foot of your post (as below)

1. Click Attachments and other options in 1st screen grab below. This will open a dialog

2. Click Choose File in 2nd screen grab

This will open a standard file dialog box to select the image you wish to upload
