Miss the old forum layout?

ST ·
If you miss the list of forums as you saw them on the old platform, you can get something close to that here. This will give you a list of all the forums. It is in the same order as the old forum. There is more information so you have to scroll down a bit to see everything. An interesting difference is that you can change the order of the forum list based on the most recent activity. This will give you an interesting perspective about what people are talking about here. Here's another way to...

Thanks for this ST! Having been away (thankfully on gigs!) I'm just now able to come explore and play around with the site. Going at it from the "older" angle first will help me navigate things more quickly. Every new platform always takes some getting used to. Thanks for all you do!

Hi ST, I just wanted to say thanks for all the time you're investing to help the community to adapt to, and make the best of the new software. BTW I just gave you a like for the video. Tony At first I only saw this screenshot, but it seems to have been some sort of hiccup. After closing the TAB and reopening it worked fine.

Hi Tony, Yes, I know that it's a big change from our old platform to this new one. We can do so much more here and it's fun to help people find new ways to do things, and new things that were not possible before. About the screenshot. You must have caught me while I was uploading a new version of the video. It's working fine now. ST

Do you know what the limits on file sizes are for Images/audio files/videos? Thanks, and by the way, I think you're doing a really great job trying to help everyone to adapt to the new forum. Take care, Tony Hi Tony, 100 megabytes. For me, that's one BIG picture, 50 minutes of audio at 256, 12-15 minutes of video at 1080p. Have fun! ST

Hi ST, now that's what I call a quick reply. 100MB was what I thought I'd read somewhere, but I've no idea where I read it. Thanks. That's one of the really BIG changes here. Definitely a very positive improvement. BTW, dann you tell me how you do the quote bit with the background colors, large quotation marks etc.? Thanks. Cheers, Tony

New posts (that are unread for you) will be flagged with the NEW flag. Those topics with unread posts will have a "First Unread Post" link that will take you straight to the first unread post for...

How Do I Reply to a Long Post?

ST ·
Sometimes I want to reply to a long post and prefer to quote the original post, and then split the quote so I can insert comments. I found a trick for doing. It's super easy. Reply with Quote Click where you want to split the quoted text. Press Enter once Press Left Arrow once Press Enter three times. This will split the quote and leave space for you to type something inside the split. See the article about this here: Splitting Reply with Quote ST
