    I could have posted this somewhere else, but I only listen to you guys anyway.

    I'm trying to post some pics of misc. parts I have for sale. I have about 15-20 and I want them all to come up in one post. I don't know how to do that. I thought uploading them to an album on LS would allow me to do that, but I can't find how.

    I know how to attach pics but it allows 5 only.

    Who can help a brotha out?

    Put 5 pics in one post, and 5 in the next and so on.

    Dana. You need to upload the pics to some kind of internet folder or storage space. You probably have a lot of space under the account you have your website through. However you upload files to that, make a new folder and throw all your pics in there. You might do this through FTP. FTP is possible and built in to windows, and you can do it just like a folder on your computer.

    Throw the pics in there and name them accordingly. Thence, go to a post in LS and hit the button that looks like a picture of a mountain. Go to the picture in the file you created under your web space and right click the file, then properties. There will be an internet address there. Copy and poaste that address back into your post and make sure it starts with http://www......

    That should do it. Thats how I do mine.

    Lemme know if you have available web space and Id be glad to help out further.

    use photobucket

    http://photobucket.com/

    You can upload like 50 pics at a time, hold thousands of picture and it will give you the code to copy and paste of where you are placing your add.

    So If this was on craigslist.

    The picture code would be

    < img src=" ( picture link here) ">

    Google up basic Html.

    How you typed that out made it sound like it the most complicated thing ever.
    I saw his website, my guess since he is asking this question he doesn't manage the website and so he doesn't know what you are talking about.
    Your way does work though and if I hosted my own site I would definitely feel higher security hosting my pictures. I see that you hosted your skiing pictures from your site.

    I saw your site as well.
    I'm not trying to be rude but if I was a customer and saw your website I probably would look somewhere else before calling. There are plenty of website template formats out there for free.

    Photobucket is the easiet imo... And with photobucket you can order the pics the way you want in the post, and put the descriptions in between the photos, not just one mass description at the top...

    We, and when I say "we" I mean my girlfriend :), manages my site. I can edit and change things, but I never remember how to FTP it all up. She would know how to do get to adding a folder as Matt explained. I'll try today through photobucket, and if that doesn't work, we'll go Matt's route.

    Well thanks for the input.

    A. Templates are boring, everyone else has one.
    B. That business hasnt operated in over a year.
    C. I was remodeling the site when I moved and never finished it, so half ass it stayed. And I still get 3-4 calls per week that I refer to a friend.
    D. Cant win them all!
