Thanks to Charlie I will have a painted steering wheel!






Just about 6 weeks ago when I posted this photo the text with the name of the photo would show up but suddenly it would not and the photos only show as thumbnails. Nothing about the photos have changed, I tried post photos from years age, same results, posted from my IPad, same results.

Ray, when you click on "Insert" while editing the message, do you see this text appear in your message where you left the cursor?



This text is what makes the photo appear in your message.  If it's not being placed in the message, this is why the photos aren't being displayed.  In fact, I expect to get an error when I SUBMIT this message after editing, because the web site won't be able to find the made-up image I used for the example above.

Honestly, I don't know where the number 39619 comes from.  If not for that, then I'd say you could just type in the txt above and your photos would appear.  Of course you shouldn't need to do that, but it might be an interesting test.  I'm going to submit this message and see what happens...

Doohhhh!  I see that what happened is that attachment 39619 got inserted into my message - regardless of the name of the JPG file.  (My photo was NOT named SweetPeas.JPG)  39619 was the image number I inserted into a message a couple days ago.

Now, since you can't see this message as I originally typed it, I'm going to paste a picture of the txt that I typed:

 

Sorry, but I can't stop myself.  I do customer support for a living (although not web development), so it kind of kills me to not be able to figure out a problem like this one!

Sorry you are having problems Ray it sounds like how I post pictures.

I know you don't use your phone to access the site. But you could give it a try to see if you can post a picture

I just had to look one more time at the process of inserting photos into the text of a post, here's the results.
I click on "Attachments", then "+ Add Files", then go to my photos and I have to double click the photo to make it appear in the Attachments box, or I can click on the photo once and then click on the open box at the bottom of the page, once it appears it has Sweet Peas.jpg (or what ever the name is but it's always a short name) as it's name under the photo and under that the word "Insert" with a little arrow before it, I click on Insert and that disappears and the words "In Message" appear in its place, I do not click on "In Message" although I have tried that and it did nothing. After I click on "Insert" I click on "Submit".
This is the result. 
I tried again and clicked on "In Message" after I clicked on "Insert" and got the same result.

I’m in Knoxville too so Frazers works for me!

I buy from Frazers Welding in Knoxville 865-524-3011, they don’t stock 5052 it takes about a week or so to get it.
The original sheeting used by Feather Craft was 5052, the extrusions are 6063.
Metal supermarket in Knoxville has it too but they don’t offer the bigger sheets but if you need smaller pieces they will cut to size, not shapes but like say a 2’ x 5’ sheets of something, 865-630-2555.

So Ray, where’d you buy it from? Also, is that the correct material to use when replacing sheets on these boats?
