We hit 250 members this week! :clapping:
As promised, I will upgrade our service with the host.
This will allow direct picture upload and also some additional customizations.
One of which will be to customize the header area. I am going to get a google site search box for us because the hosting company doesn't want to improve their search system.
I hope to upgrade this weekend. I will let you know when I do it.
Thanks for all of your support.
FYI - the upgrade is of NO cost to you. Just a small cost to me.

There shouldn't be any cost to you. It's not like you don't already put a ton of time into making this a better place for us all. Why not get a Paypal account for the site and place a donate button here so those that feel this site is of value to them can help with few dollar donation?

Thanks to everybody that voluntarily donated to upgrading the service.
Please try the attachment upload on the tab at the bottom, the next time you have a picture.
Click Upload attachment tab.
Click Choose file.
Click Add File. And click inline for a picture.
Repeat for additional pictures.
I think there is currently a 5 picture limit. The old way of linking to files at other sites still works too.
If it is a file that is text, like for instructions. then don't click Inline. Others will still be able to download it to use it.
I recommend if you download a file, scan it for viruses prior to opening it. DRRiders.com IS NOT responsible for viruses. You open files at your own risk.

Also there is now a second search box at the top to the right. It is a Google Custom Search. Use it some and compare to the built in search above.
Let me know what you think. Post in the suggestions thread please. If you think the Google one is the only worthwhile search then let me know and I will see about removing the built in one. I can't get the search results to clear out the ads. That a is the cost of using a free google search. We might make a little from click throughs on the ad links to help support the site. You may also see ads at the bottom of each page. Again these might help support the site.

Funny thing, I couldn't see the ads at first. I use Chrome browser with the AdBlock extension. It was blocking them. I turned it off and see them now.
I think the Google search is MUCH better.
Please put your thoughts on the search in the Suggestions thread.
Thanks!
