Firstly, I don't understand the workings of Webtv at all. However, I have
various bits of information over the past few months & I hope that the

There are several forums for help and questions at StarBlvd.
The main Transload Forum:
Anthony's Forum (the designer of Transloader) :
There are also several TGA/SFGA forums to post questions to, and each is
specialized in certain areas, that are categorized at the bottom of the main
transload page at:
You can choose the forum for Angelfire, Xoom, Geocities, Talkcity....or any
of them for WebTv Questions. Any of the GA's (Guardian Angels) will help.
If they don't have the answer...they will find it for you.
In fact, most questions can be answered by conducting a search in any forum
with keywords to your question, and read the posts that have already been
made. If your questions aren't answered that way, then post them, we're
happy to help. That's what we're there for. :)

The site to add pictures you do not have URLs for to the webtv
pagebuilder is webscissors
to go directly to starblvds hex machine and find the urls of pictures
shown on a page:
This tool takes apart the page and shows you each element. I scroll down
till I see a (P) in the second column and check it out to see if it was
what I liked. If it was I either click on the name of the item and do a
normal transload or I use the (S) button which will load directly to
your scrapbook on webtv.
this will also load to your page builder by clicking on the (s) but
really webscissors is easier.

Extracting gifs from News messages & putting in email from scrapbook
Forward the post with the gif in it to yourself. Then if you
don't have an
account at one of the free website services such as Tripod or Geocities,
put it in your scrapbook. You can put it in your email from there.
To use a gif from your scrapbook to your email. Put the gif in your
scrapbook. Create a page and call it something like "images".
Put the gif on this page. Click "view" the gif. Down in the status bar
on the bottom left you will see a name for the gif, such as
"importD7_gif". Publish this page. Once the page is published, click
"view". Click your "goto" button and click "show
current". The url will
look something like this.
To find the url of
the gif on that page you add "scrapbookFiles/importD7.gif" Note that
have changed the _gif to .gif. So your final url for that gif will look
Now you can take that gif and use it in your email. Here is a page which
also explains how to do this.
If you have a account at someplace such as GeoCities forward the post
with the gif in it to a free mail service such as MailCity. You can
obtain a temporary url for this gif then transload it to your account.
But note that by putting it in a account such as Geocities and direct
linking it to your email is a tos violation and your account can be
delieted. Hope this helps.

Here's a site to put on an F key so you can extract the URL of
When viewing your name just hit the F key you've put
the above site on. It will give you instructions to view the URL of each
name, c/c/p the addy in your "go to" box to view the name. If the word
'null' is in the box, instead of the URL, just go back to the page with the
name, hit go to, show current, cmd A to highlight it, cmd C to store it,
then go to the viewer, delete the word null and then hit cmd V to paste
the addy in the box. While
viewing the name, just upload it to your
scrapbook. Once in your scrapbook, you can put it on a published page
and then link it to your e-mail. I have my uploader on an F key as well,
thus making the whole process quick and easy! This will work with
other sites where you can't click on a graphic to get the addy.
Do you have a web page through webtv pagebuilder? If you do,
to upload to your scrapbook from e-mail. If your sig. is in a News post,
just forward it to yourself and upload to your scrapbook. If it's mailed
to you, as an attachment, click on the attachment and then use a
scrapbook uploader, I use Beth Candy's, to put it in your pagebuilder
scrapbook. As stated before, you must put it on a published page and
then link it to your e-mail. I published a page, put "under
construction" as a title. I have no interest in building web pages but
wanted to be able to have nice things in my e-mail sig without stealing
bandwidth. I then created and published another page named, PHOTOS and
publish everything I use in my e-mail on this page. If I can help you with
doing the same thing, please e-mail me and I'll try to help you. one on one.
