      Thread to mess about in...

      This thread is a little one for members to play about in in order to appreciate the differences between the old and the new forum software.Please keep it clean One tip I can pass along is for you to pay attention to the A/A box in the top left hand corner of the box for posting your messages. This allows you to switch between the old style text editing mode, where you saw all the commands for text formatting, etc. an alternative is the WYSIWYG mode. This can be preset in your 'Settings'.

      Also pictures can be left as thumbnails, as before...Thread to mess about in...-lady-grasshopper.jpg...or included in the middle of the post.Regular contributers may also notice that if they have previously uploaded an image, it will be available to insert, rather than upload from their computer.For anyone using ieSpell, I found that I had to be in WYSIWYG mode for it to work correctly.There are loads more buttons too. Ged will be playing with these over the next few days.

      Have fun!

      Edit:
      Awww... No one wants to experiment. ...and there is Scubbie looking like the picture below this morning:

      Links to video content in old threads will temporarily not work. Don't worry, the old plug-in will be fixed incorporated. In the mean time new links will work if you press the Video button above. Later you can just post the link to the video as before.

      Don't worry, there are lots of minor changes like that to get used to.

      Some buttons are currently missing, but will be brought back in due course I hope

      It appears some have ignored the advice on the top of the old forum that the forum would be going off line after about 9 pm last night and any posts made would be lost. They will have to re-post.

      WOT! no "TODAYS POST" that makes it a bit more difficult to just browse what has happened most recently IMO. To be fair, though, I haven't spent a lot of time looking at the new format yet.

      Pete

      Oh I found it LOL. " NEW POSTS" tiny tiny stuff but at least it's there.
