Let's post questions/tips on this thread - 01/17/08 08:50 PM

Thought I'd start this topic because I have a question for anyone who is more familiar with this style of board.

On the B/S/T forum, I don't see a place to click to send an e-mail to the person who posted. I want to buy something but can't figure out how to contact the seller! I sent a PM, but if they're not set up to receive them, then that's useless. Help! Any suggestions?

Here's another question for you, Todd. When I looked at my profile, the password *s are way longer than my password has ever been. If it's no longer the password that I set up, how would I ever know what it is? Or do I even need it any more?

Barbara, on my screen, there is a button in the lower right-hand corner of the post, that says "e-mail post." I think that will e-mail the person.

When I click on email post it takes me to a page that it wants me to enter the email address to whom I'm sending it to. I don't know it!

That is a problem. I'm looking, but at this point it looks as if they will have to change their profile to get Private Messages. I'll investigate further. I'm wondering if there may be some different way to handle the buy/sell/traded boards.

I think they just show the stars to hide the actual length of your password. Mine's not that long, and it shows lots of stars too. Your password should not have changed.

The Email Post button is a way to email a copy of the post to someone. To email the poster, at this point you click on their name and select Send a PM (Private Message). I think this was implemented to reduce the chances for Spam robots to find email addresses on Bulletin Board sites.

A little more time consuming, by about a second or two . . . is to click on a users name and view their profile and then a window will pop up with their profile info AND contact info for BOTH email address and private message. Since I don't use Outlook or whatever with my browser, I can simply highlight, copy and paste into an email in my AOL account and send that way. Others should be able to just click on the email address and up will pop your Outlook or ??? and send an email quick and fast just like before . . . almost~~! ;\)

That's what I ended up doing last night. :-) I use Outlook, so it popped right up with the e-mail address in place, just like old B/S/T. Glad I figured that out because the seller had not yet set up her PM. A lot can be learned by exploring, and it's fun!

That doesn't appear to be an option. However, if you log in, the next time you open a topic that has new posts you will be taken to the newest post. Read through this topic and the other new board topics and you will see some tricks. It's just different. I think you will like it better in the long run.

I didn't change by choice. Technology marches on, and the old board 's software had become obsolete on the required new server software.

Board is great, I'm still trying to figure things out and work out kinks. But I think this change won't be so hard in the end.

I'll second that question. In my maturing years I find that larger type size is much easier to read. I tried the process of holding the CTRL key while scrolling up or down, but the only type size that changed was the permanent top and bottom of the page, but not the area within the "board" itself. Maybe, since we can change the type size in our replies, there is a way to increase the type size throughout the area of the threads.

Edit: I just tried to remove the font name ahead of the quote but it won't go away. Sorry about that.

Re: Let's post questions/tips on this thread - 01/19/08 07:01 AM

OK, I figured out how to add the picture/avatar to my member profile ...

My next question is about the SHOUT BOX ... I looooove this new feature :)! Does the shout box ever "clear" itself, or does it keep adding new posts?? I tried to click the reset button, but all of the posts are still there. I thought perhaps it would "reset" itself once a day?? Just curious ...

Edited to add: Hey! I did use the button at the top of a new post with the "smilies" icon to use a smiley face (see above), but the smiley face is not showing up??!! Why is that?? I didn't disable the smilies !

Edited again: I am still having fun experimenting with new things ... I see one smiley icon is showing up (the confused one), but not the original smile??

I'll look into it. Not sure if it is an option.

Meanwhile most browsers have a menu option to make the text bigger on almost any web page. Some browsers, like Safari, let you add this as a button on your menu bar. I can relate! I usually make the type bigger on lots of the pages I use, using this method.

The Shout Box is sort of a first in, first out thing. It displays a certain number and then as the new ones come in, the old ones go away. Not sure if the number displayed before old ones are deleted is an option or not. I'll look.

There are two sets of smilies. The ones at top, just below the Subject line that say Posting Icon: show up next just above your name, at the front of the subject line once your post is added.

The others, chosen by clicking on the smilie face in the menu bar of the post entry block are actually inserted in the post at the point your cursor is located when you select the smilie. Like here and here and here

Interesting, I tried it on Safari, Explorer, and FireFox on both Macs and it worked, except on Explorer for Windows. (Yet another reason to switch to FireFox!) However it doesn't remember, so you have to do it each time you open the board.

Melissa, After you are signed in click on my profile under the MY Stuff drop down menu. At the bottom of the page there is the avatar feature. You can pick a stock avatar or looks like you can add one of your own now.

Thanks Todd!

Re: Let's post questions/tips on this thread - 01/19/08 11:04 AM

In your profile you can add avatars, either generic, upload, etc. Not too many cool ones in the generic category. IF you have a neat little picture you just have to resize it small enough.

Re: Let's post questions/tips on this thread - 01/19/08 11:14 AM

p.s. and they are easy to change too~! Not sure when we upload others IF they will become available to "other" people on the board or not . . . IF so then the "library" of avatars will grow quickly.

I use FireFox for most of my Internet browsing and I clicked on VIEW at the top of my browser window with the pull down menu to

text size

and then your options are

increase
decrease
normal

I did this once for increase and it about doubled and then did again and increased about 25% more so very nice and big and so far with no long-winded posts result in any necessary scrolling to the left/right to read entire post . . . oh and also on first increase try, I think, it also made the font nice and bold too.

So give increase font a bump, or two and see what you think.



oops mine didn't remember either . . . argh back to the drawing board

Cathy, if you re-registered when the board changed (a few years ago), you my have a split identity. To figure out if you have more than one identity, select the 'User List' tab and then find any old aliases (or modifications of you current name) that you may have used in the past. I know this happened to me, I had "KCC Pursuit" and "KCCPursuit".

That doesn't appear to be an option. However, if you log in, the next time you open a topic that has new posts you will be taken to the newest post.


Except that sometimes mine seems to miss some posts that I haven't read. I thought that I had read all of today's post. Just now as I was just going back through some of the posts looking at tips, etc, I found some on this thread that I had not read. P.S. And, I stay logged in all the time, so that should not have been the cause.

And, how come the threads are showing up in only somewhat chronological order? All the current day will be together, but the time is kind of jumbled. Not necessarily newest to oldest.

I've not seen that behavior. It always seems to take me to the newest post that I haven't read. If you never leave the site, however, new posts can be added after you get there, and it might not go to the newest post that was there when you first arrived.... I don't know.

As far as the newest to oldest. I am able to designate some topics as "sticky" which means they stay at the top. So non-sticky topics with newer posts may show up under these sticky posts. Right now, I have several posts related to the new boards designated as sticky, so they stay at top. They have a little yellow symbol to the right of the topic name to indicate that they are sticky. After a while there will be less need for sticky posts and it will look more normal.

Also, as I've said a couple of times, if you want to go straight to the last post, click on the link in the right column instead of on the topic name. You can then scroll up (instead of down, like you used to) and get the same affect. Personally, I prefer seeing the first post I haven't read as opposed to seeing the last post first! Since it doesn't appear to be an option, to reverse the order, we will have to get used to it.

Todd, is there a "sticky" icon you can "turn on" for those threads so people can see which topics are designated to stay up top . . . another board I use has that and it has like an electronic "yellow post it note" with "sticky" on it and those topics always stay up top.

Regarding Who's Online,What is an invisable user?


An invisible user is a registered individual that has not logged in.


No. You "may" be describing an anonymous user.

An invisible user is one who is logged in and for any number of legitimate reasons may prefer to not be listed in the "Who's Online" box. They accomplish this by choosing the "Hide" option in "my preferences". This is found under the "My Stuff" menu in the forum header near the top of the page.

Todd, the new board is wonderful! With the exception of the Shout Box and Calendar, it's almost identical to other boards I frequent.

I especially love the feature where when I click on a thread, it automatically takes me to the first unread message in that thread. No more scrolling around to find where you left off reading. Saves a lot of time. I will probably always stay logged in and only log out when needed to reset something.

The board is very readable. The only other thing I'll say is to add me to the list of those who'd perhaps prefer a color scheme other than beige and white. I'm not referring to the stylesheet option of using "dark" .... just prefer something like the blue and white or blue/gray of the former board. But if that's not possible, this is certainly something I can adjust to.

That doesn't appear to be an option. However, if you log in, the next time you open a topic that has new posts you will be taken to the newest post.


Except that sometimes mine seems to miss some posts that I haven't read. I thought that I had read all of today's post. Just now as I was just going back through some of the posts looking at tips, etc, I found some on this thread that I had not read. P.S. And, I stay logged in all the time, so that should not have been the cause.

And, how come the threads are showing up in only somewhat chronological order? All the current day will be together, but the time is kind of jumbled. Not necessarily newest to oldest.

IF you have used the "mark all read" option in previous visits without reading all new threads & all new replies . . . you might have this happen . . . I hadn't previously read the WOZ fabric thread, short on time, but this a.m. I decided to read it and was taken to the latest post and had to scroll up to see the previous post I hadn't seen before . . . probably missed it due to the "mark all read" that I've done several times with the new board without reading everything every day since last Wednesday.

Linda, missing some notes can happen if you fail to notice that a thread goes on to another page ... indicated by something like "Page 4 of 5" down there at the bottom where you can click the little > to continue reading those notes. The board is smart, but not that smart \:D that it can figure out you didn't read to the end last time; so the next time you'd click on that thread, it would take you to the newest one folowing your last visit, whether or not you read the ones in between.

Btw, the threads are in chronological order for me with the exception that the ones that Todd has "stickied" will always stay at the top, whether or not they have new responses.

Both of your issues caught me too.... until I realized what was happening. \:\)

I think that's what the yellow "splat" with the exclamation point inside it that appears to the right of those topics represents.

Like you, I've seen something like a post-it note icon on other boards, and in the others I frequent, that icon comes in front of the thread subject. Here it comes after the subject.

Karen, sometimes I know how to do something myself, but I have a hard time explaining how to others, but here goes. I use Adobe Photoshop to view and edit my photo's, but you can do this in whatever editing program you use. I go to "Image" and then down to size, and it gives me the current size of my picture (in pixels) and allows me to change it. So, you will need to change the largest number (either the height or width) to 100 pixels.

I hope this helps!

Linda, when the picture looks that small, it could be because you are not seeing 100% of the image. You might try zooming in, to be sure that what you see is not a reduced image size. Under my "View" options, I have something that says "View, Actual Pixels". If you see that option, click there when the image is opened. Or just try using the small image as your avatar, and see what happens.

Hi Terri

If you scroll all the way to the bottom of a particular page for the board you should see

Privacy statement ∑ My Cookies ∑ Mark all read

at the left hand side of the page and I do believe when I click on the "Mark all read" it marks all the various boards and any new threads as read whether I actually read them or not which most of the time I never read the B/S/T board so this feature should come in handy.

When I have time, I'll work on that Westie pic. It's a bit distorted... stretched widthwise.... but maybe it was not quite the right size and that's what was done to it. I linked to it rather than downloading. Like I said, I'll try to improve it later, but thanks ... she is a sweet Westie!

Thanks, you're absolutely correct about the "invisable user" and I just changed my preferences. I'm private and I don't necessarily want others to know when I'm viewing this board. Likewise I don't want to know the same about anyone else. Did anyone realize that if you click on "detail" under "who's online" that you can actally see what someone's doing such as the exact thread they're reading? That's not for me.

This is all a learning process and Todd's doing a great job during this transition as he always has for us on this board.

Hi Linda:

I tried that both ways, and figured out what it does. With it on top, the member info such as name, avatar, when joined, etc. is above every post when ever someone makes a post. When changed to the setting on the side, the member info is to the left of the post.

So, it works in the main column. I haven't found any way to turn off the left column. My browser has a sidebar on the right side that has all my bookmarks, etc. With the new yulelog forum, with the extra column to the left, I now have to scroll left or right as the bulletin board is too wide for my browser. I normally only have to do that when someone post too large an image on a bulletin board, so it is kinda annoying. On a positive note, I do like that it shows the number of new posts to each thread when i look at the boards, and that it takes me right to the new posts.

I'm sorry, but that does not appear to be an option, other than me turning off that feature all together. I think it is too useful and popular to turn off.

Can you temporarily hide your browsers favorites bar while on YuleLog? Most browsers let you hide it and show it as wanted. Also, you might consider switching to a slightly higher resolution on your monitor. Granted this makes the text smaller, but it fits more on the screen.

Sorry I can't offer a better fix.

Hi Melissa! At the very top of the page you will see "Welcome..." and your username. Just to the right is a Blue Arrow pointing down. Click on the arrow and a pop-up box will appear where you can select a smiley to fit your current mood. Although, most of the grey unsmiling faces you see just mean that the user is offline!

A strange one I saw yesterday when looking at the Who's Online detail was a user's name and under the column that shows their location on the board at the moment, it said "Private". It wasn't an invisible user, nor a moderator or anything; so I couldn't figure out how they got that to say "Private". ;\) I'd have thought maybe they were reading or writing a private message, but it usually has "spelled that out" when someone's doing that.

haha - just kidding.
Board is great, I'm still trying to figure things out and work out kinks. But I think this change won't be so hard in the end.


Cool idea! I am a purple sort of guy! Done!


That purple is MUCH easier on the eyes, and now it won't clash with your Yulelog t-shirts! Very nice. \:\)

You have to use the ubb codes for adding an image to your signature. They will need to point to a photo that is stored on the internet somewhere. You edit your signature by going to My Stuff and selecting My Profile

Instructions on using the image codes are at http://www.yulelog.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=faq#image

Since your signature can only be 100 characters, and that includes the ubb code, you might not be able to point it at an image that as a long address.

Lots of information on how to do things int FAQ at

I want to rearrange the order of posts so I see the most recent replies first. I don't want to click on the last page to see the newest posts.

I've searched through this topic, but I can't see where this has been asked/answered. I've also looked through my preferences, etc. I know the answer must be here somewhere.....I just don't know where to look!

Not sure how you missed it, as it has been discussed. I'm sorry, but that is not an option on this version of the software. It will remember you when you come back and take you to the last new post you haven't read. If there are no new posts, it takes you to the top of the board.

Also, as I've said a couple of times, if you really want to go straight to the last post, click on the link in the right column instead of on the topic name. You can then scroll up (instead of down, like you used to) and get the same affect. Personally, I prefer seeing the first new post I haven't read as opposed to seeing the last post first and having to scroll until I see a post I have read! Since it doesn't appear to be an option, to reverse the order, we will have to get used to it.

Another cool thing about this, is that it keeps the information on what you have seen on the server instead of in a cookie on your computer. That means if you read YuleLog on another computer, once you log in, it remembers what you have seen already on that computer too! Great for those people who read at home and at work, or on multiple computers at home.

Todd, that is cool about the multiple computers. I finally logged in on DH's laptop and once in awhile I will check the boards when I'm at the school for several hours helping out and IF it gets a little slow and have a few free minutes to pop on. Although I did try to log onto aol via the web when I was there Friday and received a nasty little pop up that it was against their security rules. Ooops. LOL After that I was skeered to even try & looksie at eBay which I've done in the past but NOT anymore, I'm a chicken. ;\)

Even though it's rare that I log on from a different computer, that is COOL; I didn't realize that. Also nice to know that if I happen to delete my cookies, I won't lose my place here. I never log off; so maybe I'd have to re-log in after a cookie delete?

All: remember to be LOGGED IN when you read the board. I have a feeling many of the problems or questions people have been having can be attributed to not being logged in. It is so nice to be taken straight to the next post after the one you read last time you were here instead of having to scroll around!!!!!

I think the Poll feature is a cute feature and fun for little surveys like the ones used so far where it's a fun thing and not something crucial or highly significant in nature. But I'd hate to see it replace the Yahoo polling feature used with the club unless some further options to it were explored.

I think that one can turn off the "show results while polling is taking place" facet which I think is vital on important issues, but I didn't see any way that I as a voter could change my mind about how I voted during the course of the poll. Sometimes we misunderstand the issue of a poll, or more facts making the issue come out .... or sometimes the fingers just get sticky and you click on something you didn't mean to..... and that's when changing your vote is helpful and gives a more accurate reflection of those being polled.

But like I said, it's a fun feature for matters of non-earthshaking importance. ;\)

You are correct that you can set it not to show results until the poll is over.

As any of the club officers will tell you, the yahoo groups feature of being a YuleLogger member is a source of much confusion. Anything we can do to reduce or eliminate the need for it would help. While you are correct that you can't change your vote, that's much like real world voting, so perhaps we can deal with that by stressing in the note explaining the poll, that you don't get another chance and to be sure of your vote before entering it.

My aim is not to debate which form of voting is better; I just have serious concerns (besides the ones mentioned). Anyway, it would appear to me to be in violation of the YuleLoggers Club's bylaws to make a change such as that until they are changed (they say "egroups" which became Yahoo groups); so I will reserve expressing my concerns in the club board when that comes up. (They probably seriously need some revising anyway. ;))

As a longtime moderator of 4 Yahoo Groups - including the YuleLoggers club and COOL - I have found that the majority of problems people have there is that they forget or mistype their login ID and password information. I just think that it's hard to beat a "3rd party" outside system like that for accuracy, impartiality, complete open-ness of membership lists and yet 100% privacy of vote, and yes, ease of use IMO.


Btw, I have had little to no requests for help from confused members, but am always available to help. \:\)

The hot topic means it has a certain number of replies or over 150 views, so while a topic could have only 2 replies, if it's been viewed over 150 times then it could still be a hot topic. I hope this helps.

It will just pop up on the list of the various boards once you are given access and no typing in of the password necessary on the new board.

The Club board is sending me lists of members as they pay thier dues and I add them to a special "group" on the board. When you are added to this group, you will be able to see and access the club forums without an extra password. People not in this group will not be able to access them. In the case of the main YuleLoggers forum, it has been set up where non club members can see the name and description of the forum, but not access it. This is because the board description includes an invitation to join and an address of the YuleLoggers club web page with a membership application.

Re: Let's post questions/tips on this thread - 03/07/08 03:23 PM

I'm having a slight problem. Whenever I click on a thread or post, it takes forever for it to come up. I've noticed that after the "shout box" fills, then I go to whatever it is I've clicked on. I've logged into the board from another computer here, and there's no waiting. Is there something I need to do to my computer? Or is it just because that other computer I was using is brand-new and not all loaded with stuff like mine is?

I just noticed this only happens when I'm trying to look at a thread that has new posts in it. If there's no new posts, it opens the thread right away.
Posted by: Todd Ray

Re: Let's post questions/tips on this thread - 03/08/08 09:12 AM

I'm sure the older computer has something to do with it, but it sounds as if it is having trouble loading one of the many sections that make up the board. Could be something in your virus checking software that is taking a long time to decide that one section is OK.

What happens if you click the Refresh/Stop button?

Also, try going to the My Stuff, and My Preferences and turning off the left column. That way we will know if it is something in that column causing problems.

I don't have Norton's, I use Trend Micro Antivirus that was installed for me at Best Buy. I'm not sure what anti-virus is on the other computer here that I've used with no problems loading the left side.

Posted by: Qwackertoo

Re: What's a Watched User List? - 04/05/08 01:59 PM

Currently, I'm invisible.

OK, as far as I can tell IF I click on My Stuff where you have the pull down menu, My Messaged, My Profile, My Preferences, My Watch Lists, and My Posts, IF I select My Watch Lists then across the top I can then select Watched Forums, Watched Topics & Watched Users. At this point it says I'm not watching any Forums, which I'm not. THEN IF I click on Watched Users pages and pages of topics you have posted on pop up. In conclusion, I really don't see any difference from "watching you" vs. clicking on your user name in a thread you've posted on and then with the pull down menu selecting View Posts resulting in pages of All Posts By Ginny.

I don't see much use in this UNLESS someone who was too busy to read the board often and was a member of the YuleLoggers and wanted to keep up with posts by the President OR posts by the Sponsor (sales or whatever) OR posts by Todd OR IF someone had a favorite seller on the B/S/T boards and never wants to miss a post by them but doesn't have time to wade through all the other posts which sounds like the most useful reason for utilizing this feature.

In the ornament discussion forum I am consistently seeing something like this:(2) appearing directly behind the number of replies for a given topic. Of course the number isn't always a two, a few minutes ago I saw one that was a seven.

Does anyone know what this signifies? Does this represent replies that are currently being written, but not yet posted?

click on the A when you post and it comes up with a whole array of colors to choose from

click on the small and large T and you will have a variety of font sizes to chose from

when you do this type in between the two sets of code in the brackets . . . do both and you get large font in color.

like this

click on the third from the left little icon to insert and image . . you will need to have this hosted somewhere on the Internet and then paste the url of the location of the picture into the window that pops up.

Hope this helps.

In that screen, just above where you start typing your reply, is a list of options. Click on the "A" that also shows colors below it and choose your color.

I was wondering if I have missed the message about paying my Yulelog dues? Is it time to pay for the year?

Thanks,

Jean

Jean: Dues are not accepted in December, to allow a smooth switch over to the new officers on January 1st. A message will be posted at that time.

Isn't it time to update the Buy/Trade/Sell Bulletin Boards? They still say February and it is now April.

They were updated in March but when they did the domain transfer everything was erased. I think they are waiting to do April after they find out if Sean found the March Data so it can be reset.

Hi!

I am a "newbie" and I am having a problem getting access to the Collector's Club forum.

I login with my user id and password but my access is denied.

Any answers?

Barb: You must pay your membership dues of $5 to have collector's club access. On the other boards, you have access upon registering. I am the coordinator and keep the membership roster and Jackie88 is not on it. If you wish to join the collector's club, click on JOIN THE YULELOGGERS HALLMARK KEEPSAKE ORNAMENT COLLECTOR'S CLUB at the top of this page (above the Amazon banner) and follow the instructions. You can pay by check or PayPal. If you need any additional help, you can send me a PM (Private Message) by clicking on my user ID 88eggs in the upper left of this post.

Hi Ted, I have 6 million days until Christmas on my board. Can you change it for me or tell me how I can. I never had this problem before, we got a new lap top. Thank You.

Sandy: This problem was explained in a post quite a while back--if I remember correctly, it is because you are using Internet Explorer 8 and no way has been found to correct it in that. I will try to find the post and bump it up for you, but I know it requires you to use some other search engine, like Chrome or Google, or go back to Internet Explorer 7.

Thank you, Ted. Yes, we have Internet Explorer 8, now. I remember someone talking about the number of days they also had, but don't know the post.

How come when I try to change my email addy, it tells me it needs to verify my email by sending me an email, which never shows up. Any suggestions?
