    I'm not certain if you're talking about the AAW site or the AAW forum, John. I have a small gallery of photos on the AAW main site. I didn't find it difficult to use at all, but very few AAW members have been taking advantage of that feature on the AAW site, probably because you have to look for it to even know that it exists. Let's have a show of hands, how many of you know about this feature on the AAW main site?

    If you were referring to the AAW forum here, I noticed that you have created a separate album for each of the images that you have here on this site so I think that I see the problem. It looks like you are creating unnecessary work for yourself when the process actually is very simple.

    Bill the process of putting a photo on the Gallery is extremely confusing to me. I struggled one day and found that if I hit the create an album button it worked. Didn't know there was any other way. An Album to me is something that runs at 33 1/3rpm.

    I hear tell there's something new on the horizon called DVD's. Supposedly they spin at 570 to 1600 RPM. Seems like that would make the voices high pitched sort of like dolphin talk.

    I see that I might need to create a tutorial for the image gallery.

    I remember thinking about creating an album, but didn't see how to do it.......I'm satisfied with just posting in the gallery, tho.......

    What advantage to have an album?

    Using albums gives you the ability to organize yor photos into categories such as bowls, platters, hollowforms, rolling pins, writing pens, spinning tops, and pieces that were flops. By using albums, you can also sort the display order in each album. When you use Member Categories then the display order is the date that the images were posted.

    Like Hansel and Gretel, the breadcrumbs allow you to find your way back to the beginning or to hierarchical points between the top level and current location by clicking on the appropriate crumb. The breadcrumbs appear at both the top and bottom of each page.

    As you know, my name is known around the AAW office, I wrote 2 articles for the journal, I won the Arrowmont Scholarship, and since I'm the president of the club here, I'm always calling the office... I already emailed Linda ferber about it... Not that I need another project, but we are missing a big opportunity, I believe an official AAW open Facebook group with a few administrators could be big.

    You tube is a terrible platform for the beginner woodturner, people come to take classes, they show me some horrible technique, and they tell me but I saw it on YouTube!! Watch only AAW proved videos, thats my advice.

    Link is just short for hyperlink which is the protocol (http) used by the world wide web. Breadcrumbs is standard forum nomenclature for going up higher levels from the current directory.
