May I add something?

I once thought - for a very short time - that after the update the smilies didn't show up anymore at the right side of the screen when I clicked on the smiley button.

Just to discover they showed up at the bottom, below the reply window.

That happened to me too, more than once. It just depends how low down on your screen you have the 'reply to this topic' window/box. If too low, the smileys are off-screen!

Hmmm... Saru already asked you what browser you are using.

But now I ask you: what is your screen resolution?

A quick way to find out is this link:

It almost seems to be the normal thing, I'm sorry to say, that when I click 'Post' I expect to see those three little squares go flickering back & forth, and it doesn't load. Maybe it is just that, like, it seems, many things, it just doesn't like Internet Explorer.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

They shouldn't be offscreen, the page extends slightly to accomodate them and the text editor is never right at the bottom.

At this point i'm going to have to conclude that this is an issue on your end, Internet Explorer should work fine ( IE8 + ) however it can sometimes develop problems, the best way to check is to try and post using another browser such as Firefox to see if the problem persists.

It doesn't bother me, in fact it makes me laugh when I've been clicking repeatedly on the 'smiley' icon and getting grumpier and grumpier ........ and then I remember I have to scroll up a little way!

I just wanted to say how much I love the 'TOP' button under EVERY post .......

Thank you, ouija ouija. I didn't know about that 'top' button and it's really useful!
I was frightened to press it before now, just in case I inadvertantly 'topped' myself.

A small complaint - in the Image uploading area,it is very easy to miss the Copyright Info line as you upload...

The default for images is 'Public Domain', ie no copyright.  Ouch.  If you upload an image (as I have) and then try to edit it, you are taken to the upload screen - there seems to be no way to edit the image information.  I've already linked to it in a post, so deleting and re-uploading will be annoying - surely there should be a way to edit one's own image info without deleting and re-uploading?  Am I missing something obvious?

All my posts about Apollo are dedicated to the memory of MID - who knew, lived and was an integral part of, Apollo.

Until the new editing tools are ready unfortunately you'll need to report the image to request the information to be changed ( or you can PM me the details )

That's ok, I'll wait (and risk them being stolen and sold for huge sums of money... or not :D).

Thanks for the response, didn't realise that bit was unfinished..  Greatly appreciate the fine job done so far!

Hello Saru,

Recently you archived the first part of the "Oera Linda Book" thread:

http://www.unexplain...184645&st=11625


And today I discovered I cannot use the search button for that 776 pages long first part...

All I get is "No results found", even when I enter a name or word I can see with my own eyes on the page I'm on.

Am I doing something wrong, or do we have to reread 776 pages if we try to find something again??

I have to add that soon after you had archived that first part that I still could use the search tool for that topic.


I think it's not working like it should:

I only come out on the archived thread if I used a word/name that was quite specific for that thread.

But when I use a non-specific word then I get hits from everything archived of the "Alternative History" forum.

The first part of the OLB thread is huge, and it's kind of frustrating having to find many things all over again, while I know a lot of info has been posted in that thread.

Do you know of  a way to download that whole thread?

I know of "PageZipper" but it will only show me the entire thread with a scroll, not download it.

.

Can you not use "select all" and "paste" to copy the contents in to a text file from there ?

Yeah, if I do that 780 times....

I would already be happy to be able to save my own posts from that thread because I often quoted the posts I replied to.

I thought you said PageZipper had produced the whole thread on one page with a scrollbar ?

It's not that it shows you the entire thread on your screen, but when you scroll down, it automatically shifts to the next page of the thread without having to click on [Next] or anything.

Believe me, I tried, lol.

Now maybe my English isn't good enough, but I found this site:

http://www.makeuseof...ffline-reading/

And whatever they suggested is not working either.

I use IE 8.
