    How many think that when you are getting ready to post a pic to complement your loooong post you just spent hours typing, it would be nice if when you click "uploads" it opened in a new window instead of the window you have been typing in?

    I was telling Nifty that it would be a great convenience. I use the uploads here alot and I always forget to open a new window to the uploads before I start.

    I think that would be just ducky TL [​IMG]

    It would surely make it easier to post pics when we have something to crow about.

    I think it eggzactly what we need.

    First, however, it would be really really nice to be able to upload pictures directly from our own computers rather than having to put them on Picasa or Photobucket or something like that....

    My worthless 2 sense...

    Okay, Okay, I give! [​IMG]

    I did two things:

    1) Made the link to Uploads open in a new window so you can have your post / thread in one window and the upload page in another.

    2) A slight adjustment to the upload script so after uploading a file you are given the code for both the thumbnail (linking to the big picture) and also the code for the image itself!

    Please do enjoy, and thank Terrie for pestering errr... um encouraging me to make the change.
