Happy to be part of BikeForums!!! Can anyone help me?

Since I am a new member to this site I was having a couple problems that I am sure someone can help me with.

I love to post pics but how can I control the size of the picture I am posting and why does it some times show up sideways when I make a post?
Also... Is a "thread" the same as a forum? meaning, can i make a completely new and original post/discussion? or can I only make a thread in specific areas of the website....

I hope i was not too confusing or ******** with my questions... Your input would really be appreciated!

1. There is a sticky down in User Assistance that may help with the picture problem-!

2. A "thread" is not the same as a "forum". A thread is a topic of discussion within its relevant forum. If it is a cycling related question/topic and unsure which forum it would be the best "fit", put it in the General Cycling forum. It may get moved, but you'll be informed in the thread by who and as to why.

3. If it isn't cycling related, we have the Lounge section- Pretty self explanatory and Foo is the catch all, idle chit chat around the water cooler place.

Welcome to bikeforums!

There's no such thing as a "stupid" question here.
So don't hesitate to ask!
