    How do you post a picture from a website onto this site? I know how to post from a wireless phone.

    Do you use a image hosting site when using your phone?

    It's never worked for me on my iphone. I only post pictures from my computer.

    Never been able to figure it out. One of the problems with the app. The best way I think is to download the pic onto the iphone. Then attach it to the post. I think that should work but the quality isn't as good.

    I'm really surprised more people aren't using the iPad for lurking on gatorcountry. The gator I can post pics using the iPhone but it's only when I'm on the ap!

    Supa, I don't have an Ipad but sent your question to a friend and this was his reply.

    There is a free photobucket app in the apple app store. You can upload your images from your iPad to their site and then post the picture by clicking the "insert image" button on the tool bar and paste in the url you get from photobucket (make sure not to copy the http: since it is already on the insert line)

    That way you can post using the iPad (just not straight from the iPad). I hope this helps.

    Jag nailed it. That is how I do it. Just "touch" the "direct link" box once then copy the link and paste it in the photo option box on GC.

    Not sur about safari, but if you're using Chrome (avail in App Store for free) as a browser do this:

    - Touch and keep your finger on image
    - many options will appear
    - chose "open image in new tab"
    - go to new tab and select url in url window then copy

    - go to GC and type the following but leave out the *:
    [img*]pasted url here[/img*]

    Voila
