Pretty many pay already. Why don't you donate yourself some money right now and get yourself a cool title? Donate whatever you like but not less than 20 USD becuase of the Paypal fees.

It's completely volunteerly and you have buttons above and below.

Ok, Ok,

I'll make a compromise.

I'm going on holidays in the next few days and won't be back in any real capacity until early February 2005. I'll turn it back on for now and work out a better compromise when I get back.

How 'bout adding a little script to display the images inline when clicking the URL:s?

Please change it back, else I'm likely to just start posting links back to my own site, where I can make a coherent and useful presentation.
If you combine your images or
If you link to your site, you can have any number of images arrayed as you please, even configured as a single image. Possibly even with brief commentary on them like some of our Brasilian friends' images . Back to only one more page. Anyhow, one still has to scroll back and forth between images and text when comparing circuits, yes? Is it easier to alt-tab or scroll?

I like the clarified +members' easy image display privelege+ thing better than what I was thinking of. That actually sounds pretty nice.

I think the forum should consider what makes the forum the most valuable resource possible. The IMG is a very important part of the forum's value to its users and the public at large. I think it must remain enabled.

Suppose you had an electronics text book with no pictures. The pictures are in another book, and you have to flip to a certain page to see them. That's what you get when you disable the IMG: the pictures are in some other book.

Please do not disable IMG. If you reduce the learning value of the forum you'll drive away the knowledgable contributors, and you'll make it harder for the newbies to learn from what's already here.

Amen! More likely you'll find a book with printed text and a few photographs/drawings/etchings in the middle or in an appendix at the end. I've a few like that and it's annoying...

I must be terribly dense sometimes. Can someone please explain what is meant here by "inline images"? To me that means several images in a row. I also do not know how to place more than one single image (which shows up as a clickable thumbnail) in a post while posting on the DIY server, (i.e. not a linked picture to my own server).

As far as images in posts, I think they are very important to keep as they can help immensely in getting a point or idea across with maximum convenience.

We're talking about the ability to include images in a post, when the images are hosted somewhere other than diyaudio.com. These images are included using the IMG button on the posting page. "Inline" does not neccessarily refer to the arrangement of the images.

Thank you jwb.

If the term "externaly hosted' images had been used instead of "inline" images there would have been no confusion. Why don't people use the right words to describe stuff instead of constantly gravitating towards ambiguous and nebulous inventions?????? Have we forgotten what language was invented for?

Aside from being off-topic, you're overly pedantic. The <IMG> tag in HTML is, in fact, an inline image. See for yourself here. Furthermore "The IMG element embeds an image in the current document at the location of the element's definition. The IMG element has no content; it is usually replaced inline by the image..."

I think everybody else understands what "inline" means here. Perhaps you would prefer to think of it as in-band. In either case, it is whatever is the opposite of an attached image.
