Thanks for that.
Unfortunately your list doesn't appear to match the Post ID.
Eg. Post ID 1312 is Tip # 16 'Extreme 4x4 Difflock Priorities' not 'Tyres......
Have I got something wrong?
Also would it be possible for you to marry your Tip Number with the Post ID for ease of reference.
Thanks in advance and regards

Hello David,
I was not numbering them necessarily in the same sequence, but that is a good idea... Some of them are gone off the front pages already... I could research it and run the same sequence, but instead just put them on in the rough order of how they were saved on my computer.... For one, in busy times I miss-numbered some, like a couple of 24's and a couple of 25's and the same down around the 16-17 numbers... I get really busy here and sometimes stuffed it up a bit on the Posting numbers...

Was thinking not in terms of having people try to find them in the archives, which I thought would be difficult... Was thinking of either re-Posting them or sending them per request to Bushtracker Site by return Email...

Does that make sense? I was going to re-Post things that are really important, like the Towing Tips.... But this was more of a list for requests of "Newbies" maybe on the site...
What do you think.??? I will work it with anything that makes sense...

Regards, stg at Bushtracker

I suggest that you cross reference your list with the post number, because that then makes them easy to find in this great forum.

Otherwise, file them as documents. That way you can eliminate the chat, but add in any good ideas that feedback provides.

What about putting them all on the Bushtracker Sponsor Site, as was earlier recommended by Motley, and just refer to them there??

Sound reasonable?

Have just put the question to Website Management on the Private Forum... Will see what they advise...
Not sure I could even find them all for reference to Posting #''s....

But, what ever works...

My 2 bobs' worth is that I reckon there's some benefit in just renumbering them 1 to whatever, then folk can know if they've got a full set, rathen than numbering them by non-sequential post IDs.

Plus it's much easier to remember "tip 23" than "tip 3156".

The main thing to say Steve is that these tips are a fantastic resource and I have read all I can find avidly. Thanks for your time in putting them together and if you commit the extra time to making them available as a permanent resource - thanks again!
