Due to overwhelming demand ("overwhelming" being a relative term), I've updated the forum software. The default style is now mobile-friendly. The look is pretty spartan at this point, but I'll do my best to get some images up at the top.

Let me know if you find something doesn't work.

Thank you for updating the forum Pat.

I have a question about uploading photos. Although I have not tried it yet, it looks like it is pretty easy to upload photos directly to the forum. Is there a limit to how many pictures we can upload in a post? Do you want us to be conservative about using space?

Excellent question, Bea. If there is a limit, I'll expand it or eliminate it.

As far as the size goes, I think that people should try to resize the photos to something reasonable. Anything much wider than 1000 px across is probably going to be lost on anyone, and will probably force the width of the page to be very wide and force people to have to scroll back and forth to read the text. However, now that I'm writing this, I wonder if this new responsive style takes care of that and resizes photos automatically. I'll have to try it.

Testing wide photo.

Ok, so it appears that it does resize the image for the display, so I don't think there should be any issue.

I've added a link back to the home page from the forum. It can be found in the "Quick Links" menu.
