We have just returned from an amazing week at Pexton Moor farm on the edge of Dalby forest Wow what a week we had, the campsite is gorgeous and the forest is amazing and we had room to pitch the catepillar as the kids call it hahah and it was great what a difference the awning makes it weas fab to be able to put the kids to bed and just sit and chat without worrying wed wake them up and we could leave the awning door open without the kids getting a chill I honestly dont know how we lived without it. At first we left the middle poles out of the extension and pulled it back one section so it wasnt any longer but still covered the slope at the front, but we then realised we would just have enough room to pitch it all so hey why not, when the neighbours came I asked them politly if they had enough room and they said they had a lot smaller tent and it was fine except they were very envious of our set up.

oh i dont know how to add pics ill have to look into that shell be in my profile soon anyway if anyone wants a gander xx

Usually you need a some sort of online storage account, I use Photobucket, upload to that then its easy, click on the direct link button on the photo and it will say copy then click the picture button on here and paste (ctrl+v) and hey presto

the photos that you have in your profile can be posted on the forums

open the photo in your profile and right click on it and select properties

highlight and copy the URL

http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/gallimages/large_237788_1.jpg

then when you want to post it look for the little mountain above the box where you type your message it is next to the smiley face click on the mountain and paste the URL into the little box that opens up

that should add your photo to your post

We had the same set up last year when family came away with us. Loads of space for entertaining but a lot of effort to put up.Would only do it again for a week away or more.

http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/gallery.asp?profile=237788&gall=3

 

above is the URL that you posted that gave you the red cross the URL below is the one that you should be using to get your picture of the children in the tent to show 

 

http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/gallimages/large_237788_3.jpg

 

what you have done is right clicked on the thumbnail and pasted the properties of the thumbnail

 

what you need to do is double click on the thumbnail and wait until the large image opens then right click on the large image and you should get the URL I posted ending 3.jpeg

 

nearly there so donít give up

 

if you click on the two links in this post the first one will show that you linked to the whole page and it resulted in a red cross

 

the second link that i posted will show you it is just the image and not the headers and the other info

Floggitt also had that set up a while back. Sure he has sold it all, but I remember him posting a pic and it looked huuuge! Don't the campsites charge you more for the extra length?
