How do I attach a file to a post?
To attach a file to your post, you need to be using the main ‘New Post’ or ‘New Thread’ page and not ‘Quick Reply’. To use the main ‘New Post’ page, click the ‘Post Reply’ button in the relevant thread.
On this page, below the message box, you will find a button labelled ‘Manage Attachments’. Clicking this button will open a new window for uploading attachments. You can upload an attachment either from your computer or from another URL by using the appropriate box on this page. Alternatively you can click the Attachment Icon to open this page.
To upload a file from your computer, click the ‘Browse’ button and locate the file. To upload a file from another URL, enter the full URL for the file in the second box on this page. Once you have completed one of the boxes, click ‘Upload’.
Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window. You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.
What files types can I use? How large can attachments be?
In the attachment window you will find a list of the allowed file types and their maximum sizes. Files that are larger than these sizes will be rejected. There may also be an overall quota limit to the number of attachments you can post to the board.
How do I add an image to a post?
If you have uploaded an image as an attachment, you can click the arrow next to the ‘Attachment Icon’ and select it from the list. This will be inserted into your post and can be located where you want it displayed.
To include an image that is not uploaded as an attachment and is located on another website, you can do so by copying the full URL to the image, (not the page on which the image is located), and either pressing the ‘Insert Image’ icon or by typing

before the URL and

after it, ensuring that you do not have any spaces before or after the URL of the image. You can insert pictures from your albums (?)]( in this way too

Here are his photos.

Yes this is common for a hip roof.

First time I saw that I thought “That cant be right”. That is when I asked is plywood directional. OSB is not due to the multi-directional wafers.

As Greg posted earlier that is a hip roof and probably the most common truss configuration used in the industry. If you are not familiar with roof truss framing I would suggest that you order the BCSI manual that is published jointly by The Building Components Industry and The Truss Plate Institute. It contains everything you would ever need to know about the manufacture, shipping, handling and bracing of engineered truss systems as well as how to read truss plans and cut sheets. It would be a good addition to your reference library and as memory serves only costs about $20. You should be able to find the manual at your local construction book store. Or on line at
