Hi, guys,

Been meaning to mention a few reminders on how to use the buttons in a reply to make it easier. (Some of you may have a skittish memory like I do. )

Quote: to reply to a reply made earlier, which is convenient if someone says something you want to respond to, but there are 6 new replies right after it -

go to that reply. Click the Quote button. A screen will pop up with that full quote at the top. You may then start to type just below it and all that is within the box will show when you click the Submit button. Best part: say you are quoting just one sentence from someone's reply: you may delete any part of the quote you want to, including photos, before submitting. Just highlight what isn't relevant and click delete, leaving your quote, and start typing. If you want to be really exotic, use a different color for your type so it clearly stands out. That way, you don't need to rescroll over and over just to read a quote and a reply. Make sense?

Edit: this is the one that is sooooooo helpful when you have typos and second thoughts. Say you writ a wrd badlee. You hit submit.

Just click Edit on your own reply, go in, fix it (Edited: wrote a word magnificently) and hit submit again. It will be in the same spot, just different.

You'll find what most FL's do when they edit work of their own is they type the word Edit so someone who read the post earlier will see it was changed since first appearing. Also, please do not edit someone else's reply. Just contact the member or a Forum Leader if there's a need.

I will often edit a reply to activate a link they have pasted in, so that it can be used directly instead of asking a reader to copy and paste it into a browser. I always put a little note after it to let the poster know I've done so.

Any other button mysteries? Please ask. No need to get frustrated.

I just used the Quote button to do this.

*wild applause*. RabbitPam, that is a mangnifiscnet example!

Well....there is this one. 

 

Actually, I do have a genuine question. I just noticed a "Code" button in the Quick Reply. Had this always been there? What exactly does that one do? Is this a way we can post a hyperlink in the Quick Reply perhaps?

I don't we can - can we? I think just a function for the FL's. Bit of a worry if everyone can edit each others posts. Mayhem!

Jerseygirl, I think the code button might be part of the new update that's happening right now. I am terribly bad at noticing things like that, but I'd say give it a try and see what happens.

As for the edit button, just see if your reply to me has one available to you next to the quote button. I could have sworn I was able to Edit long before I became a Forum Leader, and was privy to the secret buttons we get to use. (Like the Gfaw Button, the Worst-Dressed-List Button, and the Give-Him-the Hook Button. Oh wait. Those are for the Golden Globes website.)

Regular members can edit their own text, but they can't edit each other's. Only FL's have that option.

The "CODE" button allows you insert HTML without having to change the whole edit box to an HTML format. Hard to explain, but many times just the regular text box will not allow code unless you change the whole edit box format to HTML. This allows you to mix and mingle html code with regular text.
