We have a choice of a Quick Reply button or on the other side of the box Reply. The Reply button gives more choice of Font,colour etc.
Avatars I've tried to make them the size as they were before.
To go back to the top of a thread instead of scrolling back... click the settings wheel (which is to the far right of the typing box - right of the little hand symbol)and a drop down list will appear - click Back to Top.
Notice we have a Shouting section at the bottom of the page, presumably to have a conversation with other on line users or leave messages. Wish it wasn't called shouting, sounds awful. Much rather it be called 'Instant chat' or something - perhaps we can change the title.
Thanks Williamson, I often feel like giving up on it all especially if nothing much happens here for days but I hang on in, as does my dear buddy Maddie, co-admin. We really appreciate you sticking by us. x
Thanks for your lovely comments Mary (hope you don't mind but I've moved your postings to the Chat thread), I'm sure we'll gradually accept the changes that Proboards have made, any problems let us know.
Again Boglies, I hope you manage to sort your Avatars out as I keep seeing these horrible little ET type faces everywhere! If you don't wish to put on a personal photo, there's some provided by Proboards I believe.
Don't forget to read this Changes thread for a few hints of the new style forum
I would like to add my thanks to Marie and Maddie for doing such a great job with the board! I'm sure it's a lot of work and is much appreciated.
Yes, the little ET picture is really annoying so I found a picture from the wedding hill to use as mine. I didn't have a pic on the last board but given the choices......
One thing I was wondering was whether or not we can see each person's home location which is no longer showing below the avatar. I always like to get a perspective on the author of a post by knowing where they come from. Just a thought....
"If you would like to let other members know where you are from, you can do so by modifying the Location option of your profile. When the location is updated, members will see what location you have set when they visit your account profile on the forum. To update your profile to include your location, visit the forum that you have a member account on and then login to that account. Once you're logged in, click on the Profile button located in the top menu bar of the forum, and then on your profile page click the Edit Profile button. You'll be taken to the Edit Profile & Settings page, once here click on the Personal tab on the page. On the Personal Information page, you'll see the option for Location as the third option on the page. You can update your location in your profile using the text box provided here, and can be as detailed as you are comfortable with.
Your location will only display in your profile if you have provided one in the location box on the Personal Information page when modifying your profile. If you keep the location box blank, a location will not display in your profile.
I've also added Status Update bar, where your can put your location or any other pleasant thing you like. I'm still sorting things out
I've sent an email to each and every one of our members (at least I think I have) notifying them that the forum has been changed slightly. If you're already on the forum you will know already and can ignore the email
I've also added Status Update bar in your Personal, Profile page ,where your can put your location or any other pleasant thing you like. . I've sent the email to all members again but the system doesn't inform you if it's actually gone and it takes about 30 minutes to send the lot.
I don't think it's working my 'email to all Members'. My router is a nuisance, it often cuts off when I'm in the middle of something and as the email procedure takes a long time, I think it just cuts out before sending any.
Maybe don't worry about sending an email? You've tried and there are a LOT of members. Those of on here are aware of the changes. Those who aren't will soon discover them when they come on again! Perhaps send one a day, starting with those who've posted most recently - if there's a way of finding that out??
Hi Boglies, I was impatient with Proboards replying to my query about the Location and tried to sort it out myself (as you'll see above). They have now got back to me and I've made some proper changes re locations of you all, and deleted the Status Update line from the Personal Profile. You will find that your location automatically jumps in under your avatar now if you had it there originally or if you've placed it in Location in the Personal section of the Profile.
I'm sure you all know anyway but I'll still say it - there's an App for your mobile phone for proboards (bogliedom.proboards), I downloaded it for £1.99 and it's handy if I'm not at the usual computer. (Just because I'm nosy and like to know what's going on!! )
