Hmmm

Is there a "how to" put in pictures? According to the FAQ I go to the control panel and go to albums and pictures ... But I don't seem to have them.

Is it an iPad incompatibility issue?

Sometimes when I'm typing a post/reply the iPad browser radomly restarts itself and I lose what I've typed.

Thanks

NF

The Gallery can be found at the bottom left of the User Control Panel Page, here's how mine looks on my PC (it looks the same on my iTouch)

As for the iPad issues, I don't know I use an iTouch for posting mostly & I don't really have any issues with it.

Hope that helps Ned, if not just ask.

I've been using the tapatalk app for the last month or two and have found it really good once you get used to it. Really easy to attach images and it auto resizes images For example a screenshot of this post:
