Sunshine don't hijack another thread. Just post a new one with your
issue giving specifics about the setup and problem. If you're not using
OE what are you using? Don't you think it's important to give that info?

If you find OE, probably the easiest of all to use, confusing you won't get
much help here either, you will find it confusing.

Instead of refreshing the page, just right link the link with the red x and
choose "show picture" from the drop down list.
