When I clic on the picture of the Mini above, I get a larger picture. Why does this larger picture vanishes after five seconds ?

This is an other useless and infuriating function.

 

 

The "edit " link is in the wrong place.

 

Where the hell is the picture ?

Jacques.

These issues have been fixed: 

Lightbox persistence - the lightbox no longer closes automatically after five seconds and now requires manual close.

Links formatting - The horizontal rule was in the wrong place!  The rule is now below the edit/delete/reply links.

Reduced the size of 'Add new comment' and set 'your name ___' inline.

Images

Jacques, if you tried to insert an image using the tags <img></img> like on an old vanilla forum, well that will not work.

You can insert images between text by clicking the Image icon from the scrabbled eggs at the top of the editor panel.  Then click on "Browse Server" and then the tab "Upload" and Browse.. your computer for the desired image from the next window that pops up. Click "Open", then click "Upload".  Finally click the tab "Insert file".

That method of image uploading is rather more exotic than using the multi-uploader, but I was specifically told that some members were sufficiently IT competent and wanted the option to upload and insert inline images, so that's the methodology  - a bit like it's done in something like Microsoft Word.

If you just want to hotlink to a photo from someplace like photobucket, click on the Image icon and paste the URL path into the first field.

Hi alkeeling,
No I'm referring to the models actually numbering, which is given as the Article number on each invoice. You are quoting issue sequence (which varies from customer to customer according to what stock Atlas have, when you started subscribing and so on). Maybe 16 hasn't been issued yet, I was thinking maybe the Austin Healey with cast wheels.

Then I think number 16 (465916) was the volvo.  I didn't get that model myself because atlas bungled the delivery but my statement from them lists number 16 as a return.  I bought the volvo off ebay in the end, because when things go wrong with atlas, there are no competent staff to put them right.    Just to add further mystery, model number 19 on the invoice was identified as the volvo, but it was actually the jaguar xk in the envelope.
