    Default Uploading images from your computer

    To upload an image from your computer to your post...

    Click 'Go Advanced' then click on the paper-clip (Add Attachments).

    Attachment 30359

    Next, click on 'Add Files'.

    Attachment 30360

    Next, click on 'Select Files'.

    Attachment 30361

    At this point it is assumed that you know where your photographs are stored on your computer. Locate your chosen photograph (probably in the 'My Pictures' folder) and quickly click the left mouse button twice on the image file.

    The 'Attachments' window will change to the following, just click 'Upload Files'.

    Attachment 30365

    Finally, click on 'Insert Inline' to add the image to your post, then click on 'Done'.
    Alternatively, just click on 'Done' and the image will be stored for later use but not added to your post.

    Default Degree symbol & more

    The weather is regular topic here on The Vine and quotes such as "It was 36 degrees in the greenhouse today" are often seen, though in just as many cases we see "It only reached 10 degrees outside today!"

    Anyway, it looks much tidier when the degree symbol is used instead of the word 'degrees', like this... "It reached 36° in the greenhouse today".

    To use the degree symbol...hold down the Alt key while typing 0176

    Other useful symbols...

    ¼ - Alt + 0188
    ½ - Alt + 0189
    ¾ - Alt + 0190
    ñ - Alt + 164 (example - Jalapeño)

    There are many more but the above are the ones I considered to be the most useful for this forum.

    Default The control + and control - to zoom into photos

    This info was given on another post to use control + and control - to enhance photos. I have found these can also be used to increase/decrease text on emails and other web pages. Have found this very useful and thought others might also. (I'm partially sighted and often have to increase text size so thanks to whoever originally posted this).

    The delete button in the edit function is a little confusing as it only deletes the text in the post,not the post itself,to do that you need a few more mouse clicks.


    To completely delete a post from the forums ....
    In the relevant post .................................... Click Edit
    In the edit post window ............................... Click Advanced
    In the advanced edit window,top section ....... Click the "tickbox" (permantly delete this post(top left corner),then in botttom right corner (same section) .. Click Delete Post

    And there it is gone

    Default Settings changed

    Hi - is this the right place. Since I changed my email - all my settings have changed. When I press the What's new ? button i now only get what has been updated since I last logged on - I used to get all the posts I hadn't read.

    My default is set to all posts - is it me or has something changed on the forum?

    Thanks
    Gill

    So long and thanks for all the fish.........

    I have a blog http://areafortyone.blogspot.co.uk

    I'd rather be a comma than a full stop.

    First untitled hyperlink is ...... https://www.youtube.co/watch?v=wGICPpr2pXA
    Artist & title are ....... Dave Dee,Dozy,Beaky,Mick & Titch - Legend Of Xanadu

    first copy & paste the url (so you can see how this works I am leaving the r out from the tags ............

    [ul]https://www.youtube.co/watch?v=wGICPpr2pXA[/ul] .. remove first url closed bracket & replace with = then put closed bracket at the end of the url ..................

    [ul=https://www.youtube.co/watch?v=wGICPpr2pXA][/ul]

    Now add the artist & title between the two closed brackets ??????]*****[/ul]

    [ul=https://www.youtube.co/watch?v=wGICPpr2pXA]Dave Dee,Dozy,Beaky,Mick & Titch - Legend Of Xanadu
    [/ul]

    Now the same as above but with the r put back into the tag brackets,gives us ......

    Dave Dee,Dozy,Beaky,Mick & Titch - Legend Of Xanadu

    Further to the above,if you paste the url & then click the Go Advanced button you will get a preview box where you will see if the url is pre coded for you
    Using one of VC's posts as an example .........
