    ScottHope:

    Tip for imgur users. By adding a single modifier letter to the end of your image URL, you can change the size of your posted image, for example...

    Default link URL:
    http://i.imgur.com/BuhlvFd.png


    Square image, 90 pixels x 90 pixels, add an 's':
    http://i.imgur.com/BuhlvFds.png
    (memory aid) small square


    Square image, 160 pixels x 160 pixels, add a 'b':
    http://i.imgur.com/BuhlvFdb.png
    big square


    Original aspect ratio, 160 pixels, add a 't':
    http://i.imgur.com/BuhlvFdt.png
    thumbnail


    Original aspect ratio, 320 pixels, add an 'm':
    http://i.imgur.com/BuhlvFdm.png
    medium thumbnail


    Original aspect ratio, 640 pixels, add an 'l' (lower case 'L'):
    http://i.imgur.com/BuhlvFdl.png
    large thumbnail


    Original aspect ratio, 1024 pixels, add an 'h':

    Leroy, I'm not sure how it worked but I just copied your post then pasted it back in the forum and it looks fine.  I realise this is no help long term.

    When entering the sizes for picture posting, it is best to use only the width dimension and 450 is a good size for the forum. If you leave the height blank or at zero, it should be fine.

    Could you post something here so I can see it?

    An older version of this can be found HERE.

    Play One Hole
    with wind and tee options

    Hello all. I've been tweaking the 'practise one hole' feature of WGT to make it a bit easier to customize. The only downside is it means using Javascript again, but the usual rules apply for this.

    Copy all the blue text in the box below, then right click on THIS webpage and select Inspect or Inspect Element from the menu to open up the developer tools. In the developer tools, click the Console tab and, at the text cursor, paste in the copied text, then hit your enter [Return] key, (CTRL + enter for IE). Now you can close the developer tools [X].

    The four selection groups contain radio buttons for choosing your Course, Hole, Tee and Wind strength. (Not all the courses experience 20-30mph winds. So if you make that selection for one of those courses, you will experience winds in the high teens instead.). Once you have made your selections, hit the GO! button to launch the game client. The picture behind the selection boxes shows the view of your selected hole from the front tee.

    Enjoy!

    // *** PRACTISE ONE HOLE v04.10.2018.1 ***
    $("<script>").attr({src:"https://pastebin.com/raw/bs1U8gxK/",type:"text/javascript"}).appendTo("body");
    //END

    29th Sept 2018 : Oakmont has been disabled by WGT now, not playable at all.

    Play One Hole
    with wind and tee options

    I have made a much more user friendly version of this now. No Javascript that you have to mess about with, just make your selections and play.

    Has anyone heard of a program that allows PC users to play cross-platform with Ipad users?

    I think Mr GaryPinHunter knows a thing or two about cross platform play.

    Thanks Jeff. Once you get used to applying Javascript then it only takes a 10-15 seconds and you're up and running. For the one hole play, I think it's easier to use the Javascript than rummage about in a mile long URL looking for characters to change to take advantage of using different tees and wind speeds. There are also a few extra courses that you don't get with WGT's version. ; )

    I agree it's much faster and easier this way.

    Every time I see what Scott does, I wish he could do the same for the mobile app.

    Another awesome job!
