    I see that upcoming LTH events are now featured on the right side of site pages. Great idea! I'd like to ask, though, how the accompanying photos are selected and whether there is a way to change these. For example, the upcoming event for the Evanston Lunch Group™ at Trattoria Demi is accompanied by a photo of the Evanston Police Department outpost on Howard Street. I'm sure one of us* can come up with a more food-centric, more enticing photo for this event. So my question is how to go about submitting a photo that will be shown for an event link. (For example, would the software automatically use a photo if it's included in the first post of the announcement topic, or is there another way to submit it?) And also, whether (a) the photo can change from one event to the next, or (b) the same photo will always be used for ELG™ events. Thanks.

    *I'd be happy to go over to Trattoria Demi and take a photo of the exterior or interior, or a photo of an Evanston icon, depending upon the last part of this question. And/or Tom (nr706) can also do so, since he's the master photographer in our group.

    Yeah, I'd be happy to walk over to Trattoria Demi and take & post a pic ... but not sure how to get it to post to the right hand side of the page.

    Here are a few answers to your questions:

    I'm glad you like the events featured throughout the site. My goal is to promote and feature these offline events to strengthen the community.

    The photos were selected by me; I'm not married to any of them.

    You certainly can submit a photo for upcoming events (including this one).

    You can have a different photo for each event.

    The software isn't automated to grab the photo from the thread. You can email a hi-res photo to mmiller [at] lthforum.com and I'll take care of the rest. Try your best to obtain high quality photos - I'd rather feature zero photos than dark/poor photos.

    Hope that helps

    At work, I'm on IE 11 / Windows 7 Enterprise. I don't see the photos on the right or under the Events tab about upcoming events. No problem on the home PC (Chrome / Windows 7).

    Could this have something to do with system settings at your work?

    Quite possibly, Ron. I'll poke around some more and see if I can figure it out.

    It's also possible it has something to do with your zoom settings. When I increase the zoom setting, the column on the right disappears. And comes back again when I then decrease it.

    Possibly but my response to Mary was based on the fact that there have been other instances in the past when certain content was blocked at her workplace.
