Following a suggestion from Vrinda, I have created a forum for members only to share articles, press cuttings and other snippets from newspapers and magazines etc.

You will easily find it as it is called "My Back Pages".

The forum will be invisible to non members and also to members who do not log in to their account.

Anyone posting an article must be very sure that copyright infringement is not being broken before publishing as neither myself, The Hollies or The Hollies management can be held responsible for what others submit on this forum. Please be warned.

I reserve the right to remove anything that I believe is not suitable to be posted on this forum.

There also has to be a size limit of 800x800 pixels maximum for any image posted so as not to slow down the server hosting the forum to the detriment of other users.

I will give this a try for a couple of months to see if it works ok and to make sure that problems do not arise from it.

A big thanks to Rob for allowing us to do this! Very Happy

Just a note: If you upload anything that was saved on Photobucket, a photo-uploading website, they automatically crop your image down to 800 X 800 pixels, so you don't all have to worry that the image you uploaded is too large.

Remember, feel free to comment on the articles as they've been placed here not only for entertainment, but also to start interesting discussions.

Vrinda Very Happy

Oops, perhaps I should have put my post here rather than in the new forum.

I don't think we can delete posts, so it'll stay up there unless Rob gives it the Deep Six.

Anyway, i'll repeat that I can include the text but not the scan itself of Hollies reviews from old magazines rather easily, and think it may be better to do that than for me to try and scan and upload and then link jpg file scans of the articles.

Anthony

If you check out the FAQ page at the top of the forum you will find the instructions.


Quote:
Can I post Images?
Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed).


You had just got the formatting wrong, which I have now edited.

To insert the URL (web address) of an image, just click the URL box top right of the edit box, type in the URL and then click the URL box again at the end so that it look like this

{url}http://www.etcetcetc{/url} (NB I have used the wrong brackets so that they do not dissapear into a link, the correct ones will be used when you click on the URL box.)

I personally do not know anything about public image hosting other than photobucket.com.

There must be others too

Again, check out the FAQ page if you want to know if you can do anything on the forum.

How do I edit or delete a post?
Unless you are the board admin or forum moderator you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post (sometimes for only a limited time after it was made) by clicking the edit button for the relevant post. If someone has already replied to the post, you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic that lists the number of times you edited it. This will only appear if no one has replied; it also will not appear if moderators or administrators edit the post (they should leave a message saying what they altered and why). Please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.

For everyone.

When posting press cuttings, it is a good idea to remove as much superfluous border as posible and then make the image a maximum of 800x800 pixels.

This will allow for a biger print size so that text, especialy from old mags and newspapers can be more easily read.

Thanks Rob for your help, thought I'd like to have a photo of the lads from one of their Aussie Tours.
Just a quick well done to the English Cricket team in the finals of the one day games. They sure put us back in our box.
Thanks again,
Anthony
