Is there a easy way to make large reviews off line and then post them here??

I was just wondering if someone knows an easy way for someone to write a large review or modder's diary type post off line, including links to pictures of course, for easy/fast uploading once the whole thing is done and I have an internet connection again.

Also remember to use the advanced post editor and not the simple one. The simple one breaks everything. If you use an HTML editor (KompoZer) to write your large reviews.. you can just copy'n'paste.

TY Lennart but I am on an extremely slow line right now, perhaps you can make a step by step guide for me Tongue Out

Vectrex: So if I do the song and dance in this kompoZer it should be copy/paste able directly which I will be able to do once Lennart tells me how?

The issue is that when I do it in MSOffice or OOffice it cannot be pasted directly and I have no patience for correcting the links and editing the layout in the editor here (advanced or not) because I am on this slow line that looses connection 20 times and hour easily and thus anulling my editing from time to time.

Ledsmoke, I am not a computer guy,and to ask me to write instructions in English is to much(not my first language)? It is easier to gasp how,when you see someone actually do it. Lennart

First select the text so it looks like this.  Then you press Control and C at the same time. Then click wherever you want the text to go and press control and v at the same time. If you have any questions just say so.

Thank you for the instructions. Sorry that my joke: "TY Lennart but I am on an extremely slow line right now, perhaps you can make a step by step guide for me Tongue Out"  seems to be lost in translation. I know how to do all that already and though that the video about How to copy text was meant as a joke on me. I laughed anyway and was trying to play it back. Sorry about that.

However when I just do the ctrl+c thing from either MS Office or Open Office all the formatting goes haywire. I am still trying to download kompozer and see if that will solve it.

The advanced text editor setting allows for drag-and-drop pic placement from typical hosting sites, as well as better format retention.

Since the pics need to be hosted elsewhere, you would still need to complete this step.
