Is there a way to turn off all the mini boxes on the left hand side? I'd rather have a full screen to read the board, then have the little boxes with who's on line, shout, calendar, search and forum stats.

Also, in preferences, there is a place where you can select info on top or to the side. I thought this might do it, but I don't see any changes.

thanks


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.

Todd



Guess what? I found a way!

Now if you look under My Stuff, and My Preferences, you can turn off the left column.

Wow, you are amazing! Looks like many can adapt the new board to suit their own needs with just a little exploration and trial and error! I was kind of wondering how those without computers ... like webTV and mailstation users... were adapting to the new boards. MickeyTCo are you out there?

I've noticed this when I was on DH's laptop but I wasn't logged in so figured that was why. I'll have to try logging in while on the laptop and see if they re-appear.

Here's another question: who decides which "smiley" shows up next to the member's name? There is a happy smiley next to mine, but other people have the gray unsmiling "smiley". Are the smilies indications of number of posts, or something like that? I'm confused.


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!


Thanks so much for answering that! It was driving me crazy. It also explains why most people do have that "grey unsmiling face"! I didn't think they'd choose that smiley themselves.

I happened to click on the details today just to see what it showed me as doing . . . and way down towards the bottom after the Anonymous users it had a Search Spider User and it showed it as Google and that it was reading or searching, can't remember which, the Buy/Sell/Trade board for the month of December folder. Weird huh?

Checked back . . . and now it is searching November folder~!!!

That's how google knows where everything is. It has spider-searcher robot programs prowling the web (hence the spider) all of the time, indexing new content.

Don't know if it is all dial up or just Susan. Do you know of someone else who is having problems?

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.

Todd, your name shows up in red (due to administrative reasons, I'm sure). Any chance you could change that to purple? For some reason I see you more as a purple... ;\)
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. ;\)
