Ginny, I was having the problem too. You explained it very well, thank you!


I'm glad I could help, Stacey. I see you had also figured out what an invisible user is. \:\)

I like your avator.

P.S. Ginny, love your sweet Westie pic!


Barb, where is the magnifying glass that you're referring to?

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!

Todd- Is it possible to show the dates as month/day/year instead of day/month/year?

Hi Teresa,
I am obviously not Todd, but I can help you with this one. Go to the top of the page (the darker green stripe) and click on "My Stuff" and "My Preferences" the scrill down and there will will be a choice of different date formats. Make sure to save your selections.

Is there a way to edit an old post? I changed my avatar and now the description doesn't match the picture.

Thanks in advance for your help. \:\)

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.



Ginny

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.

Doesn't bother me that others know where on the board I am. I like seeing who else is online.

I'm with you, Marilyn. If I'm here, I sure don't care who knows it or if they know where on the board I'm at.

!


It's next to the yellow "sticky topic" thingy on the top post. At least, I think it's a magnifying glass. Maybe not?

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

Jay, under my stuff, my preferences, the fifth (I think) item down lets you choose to have the info on the top or the side. Haven't found anything about the stuff on the side yet though. But, then, I kind of like that stuff!

I know this should be posted on the club board, but I can't do that since I don't have access yet.
Has anybody else had their entries for the Yulelogger decorating contest bounce back because the webmaster mailbox is full?

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.

Diana, I've received several e-mails about it. The only thing that I know to do it to keep trying. Maybe she's check soon.

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

I just discovered that there was a time limit set for how long you could edit a post. It was set for 360 minutes. I changed it to one month. Hope this helps!

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!
