    Just tried to post one of my Scottish Hills trips reports as a test.

    Very minimal reformatting required which is very nice...BUT..

    The Character limit for posts is 10,000 - most of my reports run to 30,000-50,000 characters (sorry); any way to up this limit for Trip Reports?

    Not sure if there is any way the mods can up the limit, but we usually just split the TR's up to fit in Ed. Not perfect but gets it posted.

    Yes - quite a lot of forum software does that - personally I think it detracts from the narrative.

    Might have to stick with Scottish Hills. I post them on my not-public blog and that software copes OK too.

    Looks promising Ed. I like a written report with plenty of pics and getting a TR up in one go without snipping it up would be great.

    I was highly impressed at wifi in Alps campsites (but then I am terminally sad) - was in Chamonix but 10 days ago...

    Alas....while the character limit now flies - thanks - I hit a 40 image max limit....this will never do - I've 108 in my Tour du Mont Blanch tripe report :D

    And 470 in my 'will it ever be finished' (we hope not) Colorado trail account....

    I'll see what I can do, although you'll probably have to cut down on the flowers and selfies a touch :p

    Oh yeah, we can see Mont Blanc today :)

    Petite balcon sud & nord done the last two days

    :D

    I don't believe it is any longer there...

    Lac Blanc and the Lacs Noir well worth a visit too if you've not been yet.

    We nearly did Blanc today but it was stifling in the heat, we were expecting a storm but nothing came.

    Noir is the plan for Sunday

    Perhaps that is not the same as the 'image limit' - just tried to post an old report to get the 'Post something with less than (now, this really should be fewer grammatically speaking :cool:) images' message..

    It will keep.

    (Lac Noir tomorrow) ;)
