Posting lots of pictures

I have a series of pictures (27) of my bumper retrofit and I was only able to upload 5. I've seen other posts with more than that. What am I
doing wrong.

You're doing nothing wrong. I believe that this BB, like many others, limits the number of attachments per post to 5. So you need to submit multiple replies, each with as many as 5 attachments, in order to post your 27 pictures.

If you see more than 5 pictures in a post, it is because these pictures are not uploaded to the AlfaBB server as attachments, but referenced from another site (like photobucket). These links are established using the "Insert Image" icon that looks like a postcard (just above the text box). For examples, see "The Numbered picture thread."

Thanks Reudi/Bob, the bulb came on late last night while looking at how others post. Multiple posts of 5 pictures. I'm not bulletin board savvy, I been busy on my cars. I don't know what a PM is. If anyone out there doesn't mind, I'd appreciate a phone call and a walk through on how to use the board and what things mean. Can I contact one or both of you for help when I need it. I feel well rested after a good nights sleep, and looking forward to posting my pictures.

How do you quote a message in a reply? What are the ins and outs of replying, quick, multi, quote, edit? What do they do? How do they work?

Quote: click on the button named "Quote" in the particular message you want to ... well ... quote. The text from the quoted message is included and will have a blue background in your reply. This always gives you a full editor with lots of bells and whistles.

Reply: click on the blue "New Reply" button. A full editor opens up where you can write your reply. No previous messages are quoted.

Quick: Sends you to a very simple text area at the bottom of the page where you can fire off a reply. You'll have just a few basic editing tools available.

Multi+: almost indistinguishable from magic. Let's say you want to quote several messages from the message thread (or topic) you're in. Click on "Multi+" on each of the messages you want to quote. Notice that nothing seems to happen. Then click on "New Reply" to have every message you multi-quoted show up as separate blobs of quoted text in your reply.

Edit: lets you go back and edit something you wrote earlier. Note that if you wait too long (a few minutes), the message will reflect the fact that it's edited.

If you want to play around, there's a separate testing area available.

Good luck

More than 5 pictures

A trick I've used is to insert many pictures into a MSWord document and take a screen grab of all those many pictures together. Then post that one screen grab picture of the many. The other reason I like this approach is that I can better compose the arrangement. A short coming is you tend to lose resolution with each successive generation.

Sometime quality is more compelling that quantity… is the other thing I try to remember (often w/o much success).
