    When the picture page opens, it will display your pictures if you have any.

    If not, click where the blue arrow is showing, to add either a picture or an album.

    Editor Control

    The Editor Control allows you to select the type of text formats you can use.

    There are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.

    Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type.

    These selections are controlled in the pull down menu indicated by the Blue Arrow.
