Well, not everyone would know it was coming up. Some of us need a calendar for that these days. ;)

Most board software provides some sort of calendar function. It's useful for alerting members to upcoming baloney. :)

Yep, sure do. Even our old version had a calendar and did announcements for birthdays.

I'm not too skilled in word processing utilities, but can at least open them and use a limited subset of the many tools. I didn't know CTRL+B, I'll try working with that. Thanks!

Cluttermagnet, do you use word processing software? This WYSIWYG editor takes a lot from that. For instance, you can Ctrl+B to get bold text, without having to type the BBCode out (although you can, as [b and /b] will still work). You can also highlight words you've already typed to format them using the buttons. (Though not everything you use in a word processor will work. For instance, Ctrl+E would center your text in Word, and took me to my URL bar instead)

You also don't need to hit the light switch to type your BBCode manually. I didn't to bold this, for example. I'm more used to typing with BBCode because I do it all the time.

edit: although you can hit the light switch to see what BBCode the editor is applying, since it hides most of it.

Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U are almost universal and will get you bold, italics, and underline. ;)

And of course, while in the editor box:

Ctrl-A to select all the text in the window
Ctrl-C to copy highlighted text
Ctrl-V to paste copied text
Ctrl-X to cut highlighted text
Ctrl-Z to undo most recent action

Thanks, guys. I was amazed that I actually did know several of these- CTRL-C and CTRL-V, also CTRL-z undo.

CTRL-B, I, and U were semi-new, but are at least intuitive due to the letters that were chosen.

Hi -

Not sure what I did to cause this one.

The edit menu in post reply is completely greyed out for me; cannot click on anything  -

I can manually insert/add BB tags - works fine.

Also, I don't see any option to upload attachments. Do you allow attachments?

Thank you for your help,

John

You're in plain text edit mode. There's a little light switch-looking thing in the upper left of the menu bar in the message posting area. Click on that and it will go back to rich text mode.

We may not allow attachments here. Most folks use offsite servers these days, particularly for images. I can't remember if we ever allowed attachments, to tell you the truth. I don't use that feature.

Yes, Pastebin, Dropbox, etc. work great for postings for logs, etc.

Thank you - clicking the "light switch" turned the editor menu's lights back on! :yes:

I completely understand the reasoning behind your policy re: attachments (space, space, space!!) & agree with you that numerous viable alternatives exist.  Last check showed Sysnative's space utilization well over 2 GB & climbing.

These days, it's not so much space as security. Most hosting companies offer immense space and unlimited bandwidth usage. However there can be serious security issues when allowing uploading of malicious attachment files to the server.

Glad you got the wysiwyg editor working. And welcome back to Scot's, John! Here's hoping you'll visit more often. We don't bite really. We do have the occasional flea infestation, though. ;)

Later...

The "My Media" tag also does nothing.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
