PROBLEMS POSTING PHOTOS? USE THIS TRICK!

Just like the concept of cigar box guitars, Cigar Box Nation is a little out-of-date with our technology.  This means that when you try to post text or photos in the comments sections, they may not show up.  Before you hit the ADD REPLY/COMMENT button, click that little tab that says HTML EDITOR.  For some doggone reason, it makes the comments show up. 

We have no idea why this happens and the high tech computer people we hire ain't talking.
