Sadly the new software JAMS things up often. So we created the ADD SPACE button .. use that before you type anything, even words, or before any images, to stop that. It adds white space.

NOTE: Only click it ONCE .. yes two ''ADD SPACE'' html commands appear - that is just quirky coding. i.e. do not hit it TWICE as you will get very LARGE spaces then!

Those savvy members that use the PREVIEW button, will see instantly how that improves your final post! No more ugly jamming up of YOUR posts.

Near ALL mages posted here looked better CENTRED -- simply highlight the attachment image code and then hit CENTRE button as shown.

Also, when posting a string of 6 or 8 images, each butts up to one another - pretty ugly, with no definition between them. Using your SHIFT key to add space does not work.

There is a SUPER simple and fast solution to add a few mm of white space between them .. just manually add a full stop as shown here -

[Three respects for which help is requested]
1 You mention the centring feature for an image. I can't work out how to use it. I don’t see any mention of it in the instructions about posting an image in the Roll Call section.
2 I can't find a way of managing the size of the images. I’d have liked to get more consistency of image size in that post just now but found no way of doing that.
3 Is there any personal messaging feature on this board?

Maybe you can help me on these. Thanks.

Personal messaging
.
There is an e-mail facility for personal messages between Stampboards members. If you click on the dialogue cloud in the last line of a member's ID/avatar field, an image of an envelope appears. Click on it to open up the e-mail creation site where you can compose and send your message to that member (before sending, you can select a box to copy the message to yourself).

Hello Bachius, and others. If you insert the image between "centre" and "/centre" controls in square brackets (they are automatically supplied by the centre button) you get this placement:

Nice stamp wd40 .

It would oil your image if you enclose it between "centre" and "/centre" controls, using the "centre" button, and the caption would also be centred...

PlainShame - top marks - and a reminder to all - the word ''STAMP'' in caption is essential as google spiders cannot "see" what is in any image.

Obvious to us but NOT to google!

"What the Sheriff said."

That large, centred image with caption is A+. And the stamp itself is A++. Excellent!
And as this is only your third post, you have cleared a very high bar, PlainShame — probably a new World Record = WR. :D

Bruny 7250 - well done!

never forget to add a CAPTION in the FILE COMMENT box - such as

Range of MELBOURNE post office cancel on stamps

That way google 'spiders' index it - what you have posted they have no idea abut.

I was just looking at the Admin log of downtime and outages for stampboards for the past 16 months, since our super MAJOR upgrade in mid 2020. We moved from the flaky and buggy and erratic servers in Oklahoma, and I see we have since had almost ZERO downtime or outages, due to our new robust and large private servers in the USA, with relay back-ups, and load sharing on both coasts there.

We have logged just a few minutes downtime in TOTAL over 16 months. An incredible achievement, given the large user and visitor traffic we have here, and the vast data storage and back-up now of 7.5 million messages.

Facebook and YouTube has literally been out of action way more than we have in 16 months! My BANK website here is down regularly. As are most Stamp Auction sites. stampboards is as solid as a rock.

Yuriy in New York as always keeps it all ticking along very smoothly in the background, and is just about to update us to the very latest phpBB software, with even more features. He sourced the hosting company after days of research, and chose SUPERBLY, I am sure all will agree. :!:

AND we will expand our storage to an ever larger server system, seeing we now have well over a MILLION images self-hosted on our own SUPER SECURE servers now - we are truly the Wikipedia of stamp collecting. 8-)

We are the WORLD'S number one Stamp Bulletin Board because of our million images, and the vast depth of MILLIONS of posts of content, and that costs money to do, and to back-up robustly and securely forever.

Yuriy is not even a stamp collector - he just likes us as a quirky fun project for him, and has helped out for a decade or more here, so I'd again encourage ALL members to do your bit, and fund a pizza and some beers etc via PayPal in ANY currency to - yuriy [at] rusko.org (Think of it as your oblique Stampboards Membership Fee, or Crowd Funding!)

Just 100 generous Community minded members sending only a modest $10 or $20 pays for a lot of his time, and shows he is appreciated by those here who benefit from HIS super back-room skills. Please do it NOW. CROWD FUNDING at its finest. A new issue stamp set at the PO costs that! :)

Think of just how many valuable things you have learned, shared, swapped etc, and the many new friends made here. All of them worth $20 or so now, I am certain. :!: :!:

All the US hosting is at my cost, and always will be, and that runs to many $1000s a year, but please do show your small personal appreciation for the tech whizz who keeps that all ticking along with no glitches. He has quietly saved us from disaster MANY times over our long history, trust me. Spam attacks, hacking attempts etc, all foiled etc. :!:

Yuriy is one of the head coding and design developers globally of this phpBB board skeleton, used by millions of Bulletin Boards worldwide, most far smaller than this of course, and has customised the back-end of this version entirely for our needs - larger easy to read fonts given our demographic, added many different navigation buttons, very special attention to easy adding of images, and many other features not immediately obvious to the casual user.

I have never sent a text message in my life - true, and have never used Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, or had a Zoom meeting etc, so if you relied on my ''tech skills'', there would be a totally blank screen facing you right now! :mrgreen:

There Are No Free Lunches In Life - so, please PayPal Yuriy a Pizza and some beers! yuriy [at] rusko.org .... PEOPLE POWER. 8-)

Thanks in advance -

Glen Stephens - owner of www.stampboards.com
