    Vic, after you click PLAY NOW, there is a "menu" button in the upper left hand corner underneath your name. Click menu, and then settings. Then turn off "show WGT lessons". It worked for me.

    Here's some geeky picture posting tips.

    The width/height values you enter in the Insert Media dialogue box, will be the maximum size of your image and it is not necessary to enter a height and a width value, either one will do and the browser will calculate what the other value needs to be to maintain the image size automatically. If your picture is larger than any dimension value you enter, the mage will be reduced to this value, if the image is smaller than any value you enter, then it will be posted at its original size, it will not be enlarged.

    Once your picture is in the post box (but before you actually click the post button) you can adjust the size by highlighting the image (clicking on it once) and clicking the Edit Image icon. The desired width/height value can then be entered into the dimension boxes but, by entering only the width OR the height value, the picture's aspect ratio will remain the same as the original image.

    By resizing the image this way you can adjust it up to the value that was entered initially in the Insert Media dialogue box, you can't make it larger than that value unless you edit the HTML code or repost the image with a larger size value in the Insert Media dialogue box.

    One advantage of this method is that you can vastly increase the size of small images that would otherwise remain small, irrespective of the value typed into the insert media dialogue box.
