Hi guys, this is a section of the club which has been neglected in the recent past, i intend to resurrect.
I apologize for the neglect i have shown this area, so today, will draw a line under it and move on, start over
but here is a general welcome to all those i have missed.

First of all, is our shop, in here you can buy our keyrings, t-shirts and other items, check out this link to take a look.

We have our own news letter that is produced every 2 months and is free to download, this has evolved into a jam packed bi monthly magazine and all back issues are available through this link.

Lastly we have an extensive How To section, this can be accessed here and we are building up a tools library

Many thanks for taking the time to read this

Hello all, newbie Terry here, from Stoke.On.Trent, Staffs (Potteries).
First of all thank you to admin for letting me join.
I found you on MG Rover parts Facebook page and thought this is the kind of club I want.
I own a ZT 160+ 2002 in red with grey interior. It's on 83 thousand now so still pretty low miles, and it's genuine as I have all the mot's to prove it
I have only owned it for a few months and love it.
I have just done all the cam belts and a full service, spending around £400, I have never spent that money on a car before!
I am on a similar owners club for Reliant Scimitar as I have one of those too, and a Shogun 2.8td
Classic cars are my thing really but always wanted a Rover 75 Touring, I think they are beautiful cars. I sold a Rover 216SE 1987 that was in very nice condition for one of those to buy the ZT and haven't regretted it one bit so far.
I can't figure out how to upload a photo or two yet sorry
Anyway that's enough drivel for now, I hope to be back soon.
Thanks again
Terry

Hello From Portsmouth! As you might have guessed my name is Steve. I have been living in dear old Portsmouth for five years. Having spent many years thinking about it, I finally bought a Rover 45 2.0 V6 Connoissuer in Wedgewood Blue last year. And I have to say that I'm love love lovin it! Infact it puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it. And joining the MG Rover Owners Club is the next obvious move. I joined a few months ago, and its my bad for not introducing myself faster. When I joined, it said that I would get a membership card, and window sticker. I have seen on quite a few Rovers, a very splendid front grille badge. I am just wondering if these are still available? If they are not, I'm sure my 45 will be just as pleased to wear the window sticker! Take care everyone :-D

HI and welcome to the club :)

I'm sure there was a step by step somewhere that showed how to upload pictures on the forum, but I could be imagining it.

For a new topic, and a reply in full editor mode (NOT quick reply) towards the bottom of the screen there is the Save draft, Preview and Submit buttons and just below those is a box with 2 tabs, options and Upload attachment. Click on Upload attachment to see the upload options:

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 20.16.08.jpg


Browse to the picture you want to upload, then once you have selected it, click on Add the file. You will then be presented with this:

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 20.17.54.jpg


Make sure you put your cursor where you want the image to be in the main text area, if you want to you can add a file comment, but once you have the cursor where you want your image in your main text, click Place Inline and you will see a line like this one in your text:

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 20.22.18.jpg


And that's it/ If you have more images, repeat the steps until all images are uploaded, then click Submit :)

Just remember that the submit button is below the image(s), like this:

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 20.23.50.jpg


AND... Each time you upload an image, the cursor goes back to the beginning of your message (Hence making sure you put the cursor where you want your image to appear)

Hope that helps :)

Also half the letter sizes are not working and very often the colours too.--- (bang head against a wall)


AND I have to Log In every time I visit the forum, which is every day.--- (shrug)


Even after I ask it to log me in automatically every time I look in. It just ignores my request. ( For the last three months now.----)

Yeah...

A couple of things have changed since the server move and logging in was the first thing I noticed.

Not noticed with the text size, though there really was only 2 sizes.

From a login view, that now appears to be a server side setting, though I don't offhand know which
