Technical Test Thread 2014/15/16/17/18/19

  • Thank you so much MaryGK and Alison, much appreciated. I feel relieved that it’s not me being stupid.
  • It certainly isn't, Jane. We're all struggling!

    There has been much discussion in Community.

    Here is just one.

    Elliot has said recently that they are experimenting with trying to sort. Latest reply HERE

    Hi Alan,

    Yes, of course.

    The fix to resolve the Rich Text Format problem is currently in a test version of the community and we are waiting for this to be scheduled and made public. I've chased our developer this morning and hope to have an update later today.

    In terms of the default phot size, while I acknowledge the concerns that have been raised, there are currently no plans to change this.

    Many thanks,

    Elliott."

  • Karen, when you get here ......... I shall keep looking in hoping for a response to my query on the Manton Bay thread today about copywrite wording to put under pictures posted.and how to  do that. Thank you

  • Be right back Cirrus

    Before you post your photo in rich formatting click enter to put the cursor below your photo then....

    To do the copyright symbol on your keyboard Cirrus hold down the ALT key and type 0169 and you should get  © and it looks like you can put Leics and Rutland Wildlife trust after it and you should be OK.

    Hi Cirrus - firstly the link I am talking about will only work on the Manton Bay thread for it has been added to the opening post.   I  will try and explain more

    RF - rich formatting is now working.  When you click on it you will see the text box and above it the opening post of the thread.  This is different to before as it used to be the last post that displayed.   

    So once clicking on RF on the MB, there is an intro containing some info about Maya/33 and underneath that a list of some useful links.

    Using the upload or D&D, when we add captures we need to add a copyright notice under the captures.   

    So because the opening post is displayed, I asked Mike to add the Rutland Copyright Notice.  Mike did this and added it to the bottom of the useful links.

    So when an image is inserted on the MB thread which requires copyright, we can now copy and paste the notice from the above (opening) post.

    Within MB thread, try adding a capture and scrolling the post above where you can copy and paste  BUT of course you do not have to do this - you can type the copyright or use whatever method you are doing just now.   

    It was just easier for me for I post a lot of captures in MB.  :-)

  • The idea of the hyperlink produced in Karen's example is that should anyone click on it it will take them to the actual site.

  • Cirrus

    Hopefully you may also find this useful

    Here is a list prepared by Birdie displaying copyright notices to all the webcams which can be copied and pasted under captures.

  • Karen when I click on your link I get a redirect link via Google Docs It doen't go straight to the website, is it designed that way?
