VoyForums Announcement: Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users' privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

To post photos on a messageboard, first they must be uploaded from your computer to an on line photo storage site. Many of us use Photobucket, because they permit 'direct linking' of photos stored there to an 'outside' site (such as this Voy.com site ...).

Once the photos are on the site, you'll notice that under the photo are three windows, marked 'URL TAG IMG'
For the Voy forums, you need the 'TAG' line. Move your mouse cursor to that window, and left click. The information in that window will 'highlight'. Then, right click your mouse, and select copy. That 'stores' the information 'in the mouse'. You can then either close, or 'minimize' the Photobucket site, and click on your favourite Voy site (you do have FSF in your favourites, no? LOL!). Begin a posting by moving your cursor to the "Type your message here:" box. Position the cursor in the upper left corner of the box, right click the mouse, and click on 'paste'. The information 'stored' in the mouse will then appear in the Type your message here box. You can then hit the enter key, which will lower your cursor in the box, and add whatever message you'd like, with the photo. Then, put the Message subject, Name, etc., in the 'usual' boxes above the 'Type your message here' box, scroll down to the 'preview' button below the 'Type your message here' box, and click on preview. That will give you the chance to see if the photo appears as expected. If it did, then scroll down the page to the Send button, and click it on. Your message, and photo, should then be posted on the messageboard.

Give it a try!
