Off Topic: Questions about tools on site

Hi Friends,

I am curious how to make my posts more interesting and colorful. Some of you have gorgeous graphics and animated stuff and colored fonts. I am not seeing a place on the GW site to get these sort of things, am I missing something?

Thanks for any tips you can give me.

It's typing basic HTML codes in with your posts in the "message" box. Plus use (free) to upload pics and graphics. Here is a basic help site to get you started: Annabella's HTML Help

Good Luck!

Hi Susan,
The GW accepts HTML codes. There are several Web sites that teach the basics. This will enable you to change font colors, bold, underline, italics and change text. Try
this site: HTML for the Conceptually Challenged
You could also use an HTML editor most Word Processing Programs will edit or you can download one. Then it's a matter of cutting and pasting the codes to your messages, exchange page, etc.

For uploading pictures you need a software program that allows you to work with pictures. There are many free sites where you can copy gif's, animations, etc. Copy pictures to your software program. Once you do this sign up for Photobucket and upload your pictures. From there you can copy and paste them to your messages.

If you need any further help email me. It took me quite some time to figure out what I was doing. There are still things I need to learn but that's the fun of it.

Good Luck,
