I have 2 questions.
First; a friend of mine tried to join SETI a few weeks ago and was unable to do so. Are you not accepting new members to the project now?
Second; I am trying to figure out how to save the cret1.php as an image file that can be opened in photoshop or some other viewing program and also I would like to post it in my team's website. I have tried bbc tags and they do not work (unless I am not doing it right.)

With 5970 Posts you have to know about "Number crunching" forum,
read the top two threads about "HE connection problems" (some people (IPs) can connect, some - not. It's obscure Router problem lingering for months)

("Are you not accepting new members" implies that you expect somebody from SETI lab to see your post and answer which is very much unlikely to happen.)


For the second "question" - if you can tell me how I can get rid of the blahblah.Ugh file I can tell you about cret1.php

(What! You don't know what the heck is blahblah.Ugh file?
The same applies for me and some wherever-on-earth found cret1.php file.

You have to be much more specific - give links, what do you see there and what you want to save (Picture? Describe where on the page you see it and what it looks like.)
)

I have not been in the forums for a few years so I am not familiar with what is going on here now. the cert1.php is here http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert1.php.

Second; I am trying to figure out how to save the cret1.php as an image file that can be opened in photoshop or some other viewing program

You are a windows user and don't know the use of the (<Alt>)print-screen key? ;-)

Display your certificate in full screen mode, press print screen (or <Alt>print screen) then open windows paint (or any other graphics software) and paste it. Save the picture as jpeg file.

and also I would like to post it in my team's website. I have tried bbc tags and they do not work (unless I am not doing it right.)

To include that picture on a forum, you first need to upload it to an image hosting site. There, you'll get a URL for that picture, which you can surround with [img][/img] tags to display the certificate on a forum.

Gruß,
Gundolf

Now that we know what you are talking about it's much easier :)

The "picture" shown on page:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert1.php

is Not an image - it is text surrounded by border and 3 images in it
- the way to get it is as Gundolf say the [Print Screen] key.

Then I start IrfanView and press Ctrl-V (= Paste)
Then mark relevant part and press Ctrl-Y (= Crop)
Then press "S" (for Save), choose format (PNG or JPG) and filename and Save.

Then go to site for uploading of pictures (I have account in it):
http://prikachi.com/

... upload a picture and get a link (!!! the link have to end by .png or .jpg - NOT .png/ or .jpg/ as some sites will give you)

Then go here and post the picture link surrounded by [img][/img] tags.
To do that easy - mark the entire link and press [Img] button found along with other buttons over the typing box when you post here on this forum.


But better and easier is to go to this page:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert_print.php

... and generate "Photo certificate" or "Modern" - they generate images (cert2.jpeg & cert3.jpeg) which you can save by right-click on the image.

Upload to your favorite image hosting site, get and use here the direct link !
("direct link" = No "/" at the end, paste this direct link in the address line of new tab in the browser - you have to see only the picture, not any elements around it)








Press [Quote] under my post and examine the raw text to see how I posted this images.

I think that here Everyone of you will see his/her personal/own certificate.

Tell me what you see?:

Yep. That link shows the cert that I would have gotten.

BTW, most browsers, right click on a picture and save it to your HDD.

Yes, but not on this certificate:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert1.php

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert_sah.php?border=yes&show_boinc=on

It's Not an image - it is text surrounded by border and 3 images in it.
