As I have been cruising about the site here...I have discovered a few things...
1. If you are looking for topics that you have posted in...one way to find them is:
From the home page, when you click on a Catagory ie Announcements & News there will be a tiny icon in front of the thread name on threads you have posted in.

2. From the home page if you click on "View posts since last visit" (upper right corner). You will get a list of topics since your last vist (duh)...BUT did you know that on the left is a tiny icon that looks like a colored page just before the thread name? This icon will take you to "the Newest post" OR you can look to the left just after the name of the last poster for the little page icon the takes you to the "the latest post". The "Newest Post" icon will disappear when you have read the posts there until there is a new post made.

You shouldn't be able to hurt anything by checking it out...and always remember the "Back arrow" at the top of the page...it should take you back to where you were, but if it doesn't and you get the "page expired" warning, click the forward arrow (that will take you to the page you wanted to leave) and look around on the page for something that says "back" "home" "previous"...something like that (it might just be an arrow too) and click that!

PostSubject: Mark all forums Read   Sat Sep 06, 2008 11:40 am

Some of you have been asking about being able to "Mark forums as Read". Well I finally found it. On the home page...scroll all the way to the "Who's online" box and just above that on the left in tiny little letters is "Mark all forums Read"!
whew

So...you do that after reading through everything each visit? I thought clicking on "view posts since last visit" or however it's worded when you log on was the same thing? scratch

It is pretty much the same. I don't usually log out though. The other thing with it is that say you have looked thru all the topics and read what you want. Then you go away for a short time and didn't log out...then you might still have all those topics to wade thru again. Personally, I don't usually use "mark all topics as read" on this site...but I do on other sites!

I thought I'd bring this back up on the list. There's a good way to find the newest post for those in a hurry. Some of this great info about the site got sent to the bottom of the list when the info from the other site was brought over.
Bearfoot has done a lot of checking around to see what bells and whistles we have. I thought maybe some people may have missed this?

Did you also know that on your profile imformation page, at the top you can click on friends and foes. There is a search feature that is real nice. Once you list your friends, but they have to accept your invitation. That is the problem, nobody has accepted me but AQM9 yet!! cry2 I had not seen this before, think it is nice. Smitten

Aren't we all friends?!? What happens if we sign up as friends that's different than just being in the forum? And, I can't imagine how sad I'd be to find out I'm someone's foe! I'd have to go away from the forum and never come back. cry2

Gosh, I didn't know we had foes on here, I just come on look what's new, read what's interesting to me, comment on what I might have something to say and leave. I don't come on to see who is friend or foe, I just figure we are sisters on here and like normal human beings we have our opinions and if we wish to voice ours , we just take it as such and go on. So if you check some one as foe, what happens, they get a notice that you don't like them or what??? Confused on this subject scratch Norma

"Foes are members whose messages will not be entirely visible and of which you will not recieve any more private messages.
Note that you cannot ignore the moderators or the administrators.

Foes list Gimpy Cat has no foes yet " whew

I really did read all the stuff about posting photos. There are no pictures in my gallery because I can't figure out how to transfer them from photobucket. I can get a photo into a post but still have no clue how to get them into the gallery. anybody?

I've had a bit of trouble posting from webshost gallery which is the same thing redmadder. If I were you I would first create a user album for yourself and see if you can get photos in album from your computer not from photobucket. From there you can copy and paste the pics in your messages. I find this way easier.

Redmatter - I too put pics into the gallery directly from my computer not from Photobucket. I also have no trouble cutting & pasting from Photobucket but I paste them directly into a message from PB, not to the gallery first.

Actually I clicked on this thread thinking it was about how many different forums we all belong to...and got side tracked. Thud

I agree with QBee, I thought we were all friends here, so I did not bother with that one.
