    Not sure I understand the question there Fileyboy. Xenforo is the forum software.

    Has your railway forum got an upload a file button in the reply box?

    Hi Zigs,sorry for late reply but I have been away for a few days.What I am looking for is a program like you have that I can use without problems.As I say I have Photo Bucket but it can be a right pain at times.I have also heard of Tiny Pics.When I first came onto this forum I played around with yours and found it very easy to use,so was looking to find something like this to use on my other forums.

    Hi FB,

    No worries, don't really know as the upload photo bit is an integral part of the forum software.

    I only use Photobucket and another album that I can't recall the name of at this time on a Saturday night, but its not tinypics.

    I've found PB to be much better since the upgrade (I helped with the beta testing on that)

    When you copy the code for your photo's are you using the image code, the one that starts with [url=

    ?

    Cool :)

    Pm me a link to the forum if you want, i'd like to have a look anyway, had the entire attic down to a double O gauge layout when I was a kid, and was building a working 3 & half inch gauge 0-4-0 Tank engine.

      We already got the forum set up FB :)

      http://www.gardenerscorner.co.uk/forum/forums/members-hobbies.58/

      Feel free to put a link to the Model Railway forum in there, don't think that will constitute a rule breach :)
