Just testing out the posting of images processes. Can get an image from the web, but still having problems posting an image from the computer.



Hmmm. The web image shows in preview mode and edit mode, but not in the posting.

(I used the quote and insert quote function in my reply, earlier, as I was also having problems)

I see an X until I quote it. I can't seem to post a pic from the web or my computer. Tips, please?

...I am unable to post any image from the Web...I use the method that was working from the previous incarnation of the Board, i.e. go to Google-copy a pic and then come back here and hit Paste and all it does is throw the image up there for a few seconds while it "uploads" and then says "oops! We've encountered a problem" or some such....

I took me a while to figure out how to do a Reply that quotes someone else. First click in the text box for your response, then go back to the post you want to quote and click on the Reply button and it will show up so that you can respond to it.
Well doggy...

Yes m'aam that did work...

No my fingers are tired from excessive scrolling...

Thank you.

Ah - I see - like this?

Any idea if the Birthday calendar will come back or not? If not, then I don't have to worry about this Friday June the 1st, as I had volunteered to do the B-days for June.

This is an awful lot of extra work just to quote people. I know it's not your fault, Marsha, I don't blame you. Guess it's a bug that'll have to be worked out?

Somewhere there is a post that acknowledges there are bugs in the system and Jordan is waving his magic wand. You could , for now, just start a post with @ NAME and they'll understand and also be altered.

Oh, I know there's bugs here. I will have patience while it's all being worked out...…..for awhile! ;)
