Adding photo thumbnails to an article.

Hi all,

Just need a little help.

I have added an article to my home page and wanted to add five photos( thumbnails) at the very end of the article.

I was able to get three of the five posted using the code <pic id=17886 float=left> </pic><pic id=18507 float=left> </pic><pic id=18508 float=left> </pic> where the pic numbers are my own photos. Obviously I have tried numerous combinations of the examples in the help page but have gotten nowhere.

Is it possible to get 4 photos across and the last 1 below these 4???????? If so can you offer the code???????

Or can I get 1 photo in the center and 1 photo to each side of the center photo???????? Then 2 photos below these????????

I'm just looking for a pleasing pattern, symetrical.

If you look at my home page you can see what I am refering to. The code I used got three posted....how to post last two????

Thank you

Frank Festa

Try this code string:

<PBOX width=4><PIC id=XXXX float=left>Pic 1</PIC><PIC id=XXXX float=left>Pic 2</PIC><PIC id=XXXX float=left>Pic 3</PIC><PIC id=XXXX float=left>Pic 4</pic></PBOX>

It should give you 4 TNs left to right.

Rock Currier,

After hours of experimentation..................I came up with the same code as you offered me.

I discovered the "width number" is the part of the code relating to the number of photos you wish to display.

Since I wanted 5 photos, I put the number 5 in the width and......BOOM.....it works. (see my page now).

Still working on how to remove the name and locations printed below photos. All I want is a simple, wordless photo thumbnail.

Thank you very much for your help - maybe you know how to achieve what I'm looking for??????

Your friend

Rock Currier,

As a follow up note............here is the code:

<PBOX width=5><PIC id=xxxxx float=left> </PIC><PIC id=xxxxx float=left> </PIC><PIC id=xxxxx float=left> </PIC><PIC id=xxxxx float=left> </PIC><PIC id=xxxxx float=left> </PIC></PBOX>

This will get you exactly what I have on my page. A few more experiments and .........Boom again. The wording was removed and there it was.

Thank you again
