Hi All - Do you have to be logged in as a registered member to view pictures that are attached to a posting? The reason I am asking is that I posted in the For Sale section "64 TBird For Sale In Buffalo NY Area" and attached some pictures. I then sent the owner of the car info about the posting, and he replied back that he could view the pictures. To help investigate his problem, I went onto my wife's computer to view the thread without signing in to the site and the pictures would not open. Is that how it's supposed to work?

Yes you are correct about having to log in as a member in order to view pictures.

Although I am a member another option is to use an external site to post your pictures and link to them in your post. That way both members and non-members can view the pics. (plus it saves server space on the Squarebirds site for other things like tech info and such!) I use dropshots - no affiliation - just happened to pick them.

Example - this pic is on my dropshots site and should be visible whether you are logged in or not. (I hope that's the way it works)
