It would be helpful if the Xtra folks would write a little help guide right there for that specific site and the way they want subjects listed. I don't know what question to ask because I couldn't get the site to even do it wrong. Here is what I tried, I posted some photos on Photobucket, then copied the URL, then went to the Longtail Wiki site, clicked Edit to the right of the mod list, tried to copy under the other lines which seemed to work but it didn't. Tried a bunch of other stuff, made it look like the other entries, still didn't work. Typed in the URL copying the entries already there (with my info) and that didn't work. I have thought of something else to try but my point is that unless you are a computer whiz and a creative bike person, there is little chance of seeing other mods on a site that is that difficult to figure out. Using a more simple system would allow more people to post their mods. I am seeing this more and more- the assumption that everyone spends hours a day on the computer learning the latest stuff. I am too busy riding my bike to do that.
