    I know you created the website comments section for this but there is something missing.  There is no create a topic button with which to start a new topic to let you know what's up.  The other issue I have is that there is no way to post a picture in any of the postings.  It would be nice to add pics of things.  Also, it would be nice to have a gallery of turnings for the members to post their stuff for all to see.  This would have to be a separate area I think, but might be good to look at.  There is a lot of inspiration throughout this club.  It would be nice to see what people are doing and be able to get critiques and comments form others on our work.

    Just a thought or two.

    Larry, thanks for the catch on the "tips and tricks" forum.  I found the setting that was switched off so now any member can create topics.  

    You can insert pictures into forum posts; when typing in the text box, look at the upper left corner of the page and you see buttons for "picture", "art text", "links"...  click picture and you can upload one of your own pictures.  Make sure it's no larger than 300kb, larger pictures really slow things down.  
      I'm working on member galleries, will roll that out soon.  If you see an example of a allery format you like, send it along - I'm open to any ideas.  Thanks again Larry for the comments and suggestions.  John

    Larry, I'm now seeing that you dont have picture insert buttons - while I do have it.  I have a question into WApricot about this issue.  The membership needs to be able to post pictures into the forum.  I'll let you know when it's fixed.
