ICPUG,

Sorry for the late reply. With JavaScript past the URL in, highlight it and push the URL button.

With no JavaScript as in your case at work, you can make a lickable clink this way:

[url] <- opening tag | closing tag -> [/url]

Even more importantly, if you started a thread to find the solution to a problem and the solution was forthcoming, please edit your original post to add [Solved] to the subject line.


I am sorry if this is obvious but could someone explain to me how to do this. I have yet to figure it out. Embarassed

I’m probably the last person on earth you should get lessons on etiquette from but I think I can answer you question.

This is my OP (original post). When the thread reaches a successful conclusion and I’m satisfied that the problem is resolved I return to the first post and edit the subject line (aka title) and add: [SOLVED] to it.

To edit a post: Login, find your post and then press the Edit button at the top right corner of that post. Make your changes and then press Submit just as you did when first you made the post.

A bit nostalgic for me. In reading back, I'm surprised at how much I've
learned. About four years ago I thought they were called lickable clinks.

No. That wasn't correct. They are more technically called clickable links

Adding attachments to topic/posts in forum.
Guide to follow:

Images:
To be visible in post or topic-
No wider than 600
No higher than is absolutely needed to see image in a usable way.
Height really depends on type of image.
Quality as low as usable. A very low setting will still give useful image.

File size:
0 to 1MB
Common sense dictates that you should try to limit an attached file to less than 1MB. The smaller the better.
This data is stored on a forum server and the forum has to pay for the storage used. In general the forum probably has an allocated amount of data storage space, that has been paid for, but if it needs more, there is an added cost.
