"Does everyone else's screen look different when they reply to a post ?  The 'bar' where the font sizes, emoticons is in a different place with a different layout for me" - Oh yes indeedy Doogsy. The WAA must have had a really big night http://www.picgifs.cdrunkenLaughing

Just had a check and it seems that forumotion have introduced a new editor  affraid. It looks like it's going to be a nightmare to get used to, and they say there may be some bugs to iron out, such as at the moment as Doogs says trying to reply to PMs is freezing up. I ill try my best to see what does what, and let you know. It was only introduced today. THis is a copy of what they have said

New Editor For Forumotion forums



Forumotion is pleased to announce the arrival of its new editor on your Forums

We have chosen a simple and complete messages editor that allows you to have a direct view of items to put on your forum pages (images, text, colors ...)

Thanks WS  . . . . . still not sure how to post photos though scratch  Doing everything the same as before but when you get to the bit to 'Insert Image' the screen is different.  I put in the file name next to http:// but nothing 
 

Sorry you probably need this like a hole in the head at the moment

No problem Doogs. I think where your going wrong is when you paste the link in the box you are not getting rid of the words http:// first by back spacing . Then paste your link as before

I'm at work tomorrow, and over the weekend so I wont be able to help or reply in the daytime. If yoou have anymore problems or issues please post them in the New Editor Problems thread on
http://wildaboutanimals.forumotion.net/t2522-new-forum-editor#49877

and I will try to answer them later

I think I must have done the same thing as Doogs with my last attempt at posting a hippo pic, so thanks for the tip to remove the http thingy WS. I may give that a try shortly.

That said, my laptop overall today seems a bit of a mess, with another forum I frequent down for maintenance plus facebook down too. Oh me oh my!

Apologies for being absent from here recently. I got my tax done (plus some shopping) on Thursday night (which was also spent snuggling with the pooches after they/we got caught out in the rain) and Friday night was at the folkies and was a lot of down time, with walking the dogs with dad, then watching the footy whilst reading a cycling magazine that he got (it was a preview on the Giro Very Happy ).

I have just downloaded google chrome then so will see how that goes. A lot of threads to catch up on here.

Good to have you back GR - I thought you had gone a bit silent Razz

We're off to London for a few days so I will be very silent until Wednesday, so have a great weekend everyone, fingers crossed for some sunshine and warmth, rather than the rain and wind.

Good Morning Everyone Very Happy

OK like everyone else, got to get used to this new gizzmo of the site. WS you have been sterling sorting this all out and helping everyone out, you are a complete Like a Star @ heaven

Apologies for not being around this week, it has been an absolute mare of a week, if it was going to happen it happened this week and my car went wonky twice this week so off to the garage twice and yesterday it went on the way home, got home to sort Nero then back to the garage then shopping then neighbours to see about sorting his cat for the weekend and Monday as he is away and I eventually sat down at 9.30pm after being up from 5am and hadn't had anything to eat, but the whole week has been pretty much like that, lets hope for a calmer week this week and less dramas going on all over the place.

Sounds as though you have been having trouble with the internet etc GR, I must admit with FB I always got notifications on my phone but just lately that doesnt seem to happen, not sure if it's FB or my phone. I hope all your connection problems get sorted.

Using Google Chrome is fine, I have used it for a while now and I get this site through GC and I do search through it as well, it was IE that was giving me loads of issues before.

Posting a picture on here was slightly different since I used GC but this new tool bar is completely different so I will have to give it a go and see what it's like.

Loving the colour of your postings Doogs, very eye catching, I like cheers

Lai have a lovely time in London and I hope the weather is good for you both especially if you are sight seeing.

Have a good weekend everyone, we have a mixture of sunshine, wind and it looks like we may get rain again as well.
I will catch up on here later today, in the mean time, have a good one everyone.

Not good at all for you LW No Hope you catch a break soon as back, forum and car trouble is no good at all, and certainly not fair for a sweet lady such as yourself.

But you and WS really should try not to sweat too much about the forum. We are still active, can still converse, so mostly it's all still good. We will all get used to the new setups OK

Today I enjoyed a surprise off the cuff lunch with my brother. He texted me this morning for a catch up, and he even paid for it all (he claimed that I had paid for the last one apparently), and we had a nice chill out time talking about sports (well of course Very Happy ) and some other thingys. I ate a mixed grill, so haven't bothered with dinner tonight Razz

After that I went to JB Hi-Fi and got the new Jimmy Eat World album (they are my second favourite band) and have teed up a man date with my great mate (coincidentally also named) Jimmy on Friday night for us both to have a first listen!

I also got some DVD's, including the 3rd season of Big Cat Diary http://i70.servimg.c

I am watching Endeavour now, though not very closely given that I'm online, but it doesn't really matter as yesterday I ordered the first season online via pre-order. It comes out in a months time!

Lai, hope that you are already having a fun and meaningful time in the big smoke. We look forward to all your news when you return Very Happy

affraid You have a had a rough week LW, lets hope this weeks better, and your Cars OK. Hope you have a great time in London Lai, well at least in the evening  Always good to have a free meal GR, not sweating GR we are lucky on the Forum here we only have a couple of issues. On some their colours have all changed, and parts of their editors will not work, so we loike to keep an eye out in case theirs any action we need to take, to stay on top of things. Fingers X for a good week for everyone

Post  Safariman on Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:04 am

Returned from Zambia on Saturday night after a great 10 days in the Lower Zambezi National Park. I will be posting in the Members Safari thread in due course when I have downloaded and sorted my photos, I also took about an hour's worth of short videos which will need extensive editing if I can remember how to do it!! Will probably have to ask my sons for assistance as they are more savy with these things than me. I will also do a quick update on the Swans on their thread. I have a lot of catching up to do on WAA as well as the usual post holiday washing and ironing and other enjoyable tasks.

Thought i would try the new editor to see if I could download a photo and it seemed to work, I use Firefox and Apple Safari not IE or Google.
Photo is a view from my tent as I looked out across the Zambezi River with Zimbabwe in the far distance.

http://www.picgifs.c  Back Safariman glad you have had a good time. Looking forward to seeing your photos, and hearing your stories. After you've done those very enjoyable jobs affraid  Glad you can post your photos OK. Once you've done your videos, you should be able to embed them in the Forum using Firefox I think it works the same as Chrome, not sure Apple Safari I've never used it. Bit if you have a problem let me know. Hopefully by the time you get round to doing it. Forumotion will have sorted the problems from the new editor.
Fabulous view from you tent, that must have been a great feeling to wake upto

WS

GR, absolutely looooove Jimmy Eat World, their music is my favourite to do the housework too (can't you tell I'm now getting old) I haven't hear their new album yet but may have to treat myself when pay day arrives
