I've been a national oral cancer support volunteer for almost 14 years now.Strange indeed
It should be all set for you now. We were able to manually turn yours into a link.One thing I haven't been able to do, and this goes back to the old Grumble as well, is to create a link in my signature line.
I had a link there to the national cancer support group I belong to originally and when I changed something in it the link would no longer work and it's been like that for a long time.
I do have a working link on my profile page but It won't work in the signature line.
Not a big deal, but it might help someone if they want info.
I have noticed that a number of signature lines have links that don't work but some do.
Thanks for the hard work!
I hear you on that one. Yes, it was the software we used prior to 2013 which had that feature built in. (vBulletin) The new product is called Xenforo.Hey Mike, here's another much-missed feature of one of the old Grumble iterations: the forward and back arrows to allow easier scrolling through forum topics.
Ah those Brits and their inventive use of the so-called English language . Shakespeare would be proud. Also some of the BritSpeak version of swear words get by the word censor here. I leave the determination of which ones as an exercise for the bored.Learned a new "word"... tickety-boo.
Thanks for fixing that for me, Mike..It should be all set for you now. We were able to manually turn yours into a link.
I recall when the ability to put links there was turned off several years ago, because it was being abused by spammers and some members. For those who already had links, they are still there, but the ability to add new ones (or large taglines that were bigger than each post) was disabled.
It's something the team can revisit and discuss in the future.
Thanks for pointing it out
That's a great idea. At your suggestion, we tripled the length of edit time from 30 minutes, to 90. (effective immediately)I was wondering if there is anyway the time to "delete" or to "edit" can be extended to longer time? There has been times that what I write I don't proof read for one reason or another and after I re-look at what I wrote and want to change it I can't because it's past the 30 minutes. I understand there may be reasons that it can't be changed but I don't know if I don't ask.
That's great! Love this change.That's a great idea. At your suggestion, we tripled the length of edit time from 30 minutes, to 90. (effective immediately)
I have even attempted to delete something I wrote, to find that it was back again when I returned to the thread the next day! I think the system saves a post for 24 hours.
There is a little known feature built in where the forum AUTO SAVES a document draft every minute, while you are typing it up. If you time out, get a customer, or forget about it -- all is not lost. When you return to the same place and do the same thing, it should actually fill the blank document with the draft of what you was typing up before it happened. I believe it only holds the drafts for 24 hours, but it is a great feature that has come in handy for me many times....mine happened after I'd spent a few minutes composing that one post. It can take awhile (especially if one is at work and the phone rings, etc....), and perhaps there's some time limit? But it was only a few minutes of composition time, nothing super long.
I think it did that to me, as well. I Grumble old school, by going to the main list of forums, clicking on bold-faced threads of interest, and reading. The other day, when I went back to choose another, it had logged me out.I've noticed a recurrence of an old issue - clicking on the"home" button on top left sends you to the home page..and logs you out. but not always.
Yes and I know why this might happen.I've noticed a recurrence of an old issue - clicking on the"home" button on top left sends you to the home page..and logs you out.
