Paul,

May we have some sort of a tutorial or something to explain the functions of the buttons in the toolbar of the post editing window?

I'm attaching an image with the buttons I find puzzling circled.

Thanks,
Deepak

I think it's all to found by clicking Help, Deepak

Also, if you hover your mouse over the icon, it usually reveals its purpose

You could always suck it and see, of course

Could you also post a detailed instruction manual on how to use this little plastic mechanism with the wire connected to it and the little ball underneath?

Oh, and a diagram on how to sharpen a pencil?

 

Thanks!

Paul,

Nope, hovering the mouse pointer over the icon doesn't bring up the banner. It may be a Firefox problem.

Anyway, I'll figure them out soon enough. I was just looking for a shortcut. Help files are usually long, boring and written in techno-geek. I thought, if you'd already studied the bells and whistles, you might be able to tell us how to ring and blow them.

No worries. I'll do some digging.

Deepak

Yes, it is a Firefox issue

But they're "standard" icons, mostly to do with formatting - center etc

That said, these might be of particular interest -

 = insert URL (remember the problems with this on the old site?)

and  is Windows media player which means you can upload and share sound files, video etc

I think the new site is quite the improvement over the last one.  I also like that one has to have a working email address in order to register.  That's a step in the right direction.  Thank you, Paul.  (Had to try out the bold there.  Hehe.)

Cheers,
Jon

Actually, Paul, the URL function in the old site didn't give as much trouble as did the mailto: tag that got added wherever the software detected the "@" symbol. Every darned word after @ was considered part of the email addy.

I have no problem understanding the boldface, italic, left/centre/right align, numbered, bulleted, etc., icons.

As for the rest, I'll sharpen my pencil and hand it over to the flamers to be inserted where appropriate.

I do miss the branched threading, though. That was one of the best features of the old site.

Am I right in assuming posts are still protected in the robots.txt file?

Deepak

Not sure about robot.txt - I'm still getting up to speed with all this myself

But one of the features of this software is that it's "search engine friendly"

As ever, everything here is automatically in the public domain and should therefore attract the usual cautions
