RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

I have created websites and have a blog. For what you are trying to do, a blog is the better choice as far as effort required, multiplatform viewing, cost etc. Plus the blog has built in options at the bottom of each post for comments and responses. I use the Google Blogger for our travel blog (see link in signature at bottom of this post). Blogger is free and works well on PC or phone, etc. without any effort on the part of the owner. There are also several options for the viewer to navigate your posts, i.e. the pull down menu at left top of the window (try "flipcard" for an interesting view of content). A website such as one I created and am webmaster for (Annual Class B Rally) takes way more effort, is not free and does not present well on different platforms without extra effort. Just my two cents worth.

RE: looking for music app alternative to google play

It's interesting that Media Monkey is not mentioned in this tread. It only shows as #9 out of the list "Top 14 Music Management Software". I used it to rip all our music CDs to my PC and the end result is just a normal folder (My Music) with subfolders named by (artist) and then by (album name) within artist as mp3 files. Media Monkey just organizes all this by every which to allow you to play music by playlist, artist, etc. The music files are yours on your PC with no other connections to Media Monkey than as the organizer. There is a free version of Media Monkey, but they offer the Golden version for a price and it is reasonable so I eventually went that way.

RE: Anyone use Fototime for photo hosting?

I use Google Drive for all non-photo document needs, but I just don't understand what Google Drive brings to photos. I guess I am dense, but Google Photos meets ALL my photo needs. In either case, the photos are in the Google Cloud and the two apps are just the tools Google offers to manage/access them. The question I was addressing is whether one can post a photo to appear in a forum post? Can you do so with Google Photos? Not just a link to the photo in your Google Photos account? I don't see where they provide a direct embed link?No, you can't get a direct imbed link from Google Photos that will result in the photo being a part of the RV.NET post. But RV.NET Photo Upload & Post does just that for a photo downloaded to your PC from Google Photos.

RE: Anyone use Fototime for photo hosting?

Regarding posting Google Drive photos, I used the browser's developer tools to find the URL link. However, there may be an easier way. A search found this tool that reports to convert a Google Drive photo link to a URL link you can use to post photos. Google Drive Direct Link Generator Just note that since Google is not providing the URL hotlink directly, they could change the link method used to access the photos at any time.I use Google Drive for all non-photo document needs, but I just don't understand what Google Drive brings to photos.

https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipO2g3ya2X9_fySA-Mmrumc2QMTNWZbaxUmHaOyO width=640 https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipO2g3ya2X9_fySA-Mmrumc2QMTNWZbaxUmHaOyO The google photo image link dose not work. The clickable google photo link does work. In spite of the many complicated solutions suggested here for putting a photo in a post, it's not that complicated. The simplest way is to use the RV.NET provided Photo Post & Upload website that properly sizes the photo and provides a link to copy and past here (Example): https://i.imgur.com/qtidQJKl.jpg The other way is to use the RV.Net link icon https://i.imgur.com/ZfCLf87l.jpg at the top of the posting window to link to any photo hosting site to display your photo(s). This example uses a link provided by Google Photos (using Google Drive just complicates the process) to an "Album" with one photo. Example: Sunrise

RE: Anyone use Fototime for photo hosting?

Well! How about that one? I just learned something new. I have had a Gmail account since its inception, back when you had to have an invite to get an account. And they gave you 10 invites to pass out to other people. All those years and I did not know until I read this that I could use it that way and hot link to a picture. I went for years here, and on a photography forum without posting any pics after I took my TT rebuild website down. I used to host my own pics. I'm going to check it out and figure out how to do it. Thanks!Are you serious??? A gmail account is your entry to all Google apps: mail.google.com photos.google.com drive.google.com contacts.google.com calendar.google.com maps.google.com news.google.com All good free apps and accessible on all devices. For Example...

RE: Spare tire for 2014 MB 3500 Sprinter

I can't help with your question, but just an alternative viewpoint. Our 2005 LTV Free Spirit Class B had its spare on the back door and LTV used the Sprinter spare spot under the floor inside back doors as what they called "basement" storage that comes in handy. After 150K miles of travel with the spare, at a Class B RV rally, the question came up about the need for spare tires brought on by the fact that newer Class Bs often don't have spare tires. After hearing the pros & cons, I decided to live without the spare tire. The reasons were (1) only one flat tire in those miles (and that one happened when it was parked in a family member's driveway and the tire slowly went down due to a nail picked up the day before, (2) the need to drop the tire down when we needed to open the door on the side the spare was on, (3) we added a screen across the area inside the back door opening that required more dropping the tire when we wanted to open both back doors for a good breeze through the RV, and (4) our Progressive insurance on the RV covers 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

RE: Charter Spectrum Internet

What does this have tp do with RVing?Even though you have been a member since 2005, you must not look in much. Many posts in this thread have little or nothing to do with an RV. For example, Apple vs Windows or Apple vs Android, etc. etc.
