DRI: The Point at Poipu, 3 deeded weeks, 1 of which is in The Club.
My favorite new feature (I think it's new), is the ability to resize linked images. I often link to images on my Smugmug site, and a Smugmug "upgrade" took away my ability to resize before I linked it. I usually don't want to link to a full sized image.

@TUGBrian
Here is a minor issue:
1. You post. (Post 1)
2. You notice an error, edit your post and save. (Post 2)
3. You notice a second error and go to edit. You see Post 1 and not Post 2.
4. So, you can cancel. You see Post 2.

It's almost as if 'edit' fetches the post from a mirror that has not yet caught up!

I actually tried to reproduce the issue with this post. But couldn't do it!

I edit quite a few of my posts the same way and haven't noticed this issue yet.

It happened in this post last time. I added the second paragraph and the screenshot in the edit&save. When I tried to edit again, I couldn't see the prior edit. I canceled and it was there. It took a while before the edit would bring up the prior edit!

15% is usury! TS is a depreciating asset like an automobile. Mush worse in that it instantly depreciates 100% to ~$0 resale value in the blink of an eye at the end of the rescission period! :)
Borrowing against a depreciating asset at any interest rate greater than the rate of inflation is a terrible idea! ~0% is the only acceptable rate, imo!

There should have been a page containing Loan information and additional disclosures showing how much this loan will cost over 10 years. You would have paid ~15,000 in interest! :eek:

cant reproduce whatever it is you are doing. would suggest using the preview button to review your posts prior to submitting them if it is happening to you with frequency.

Hello - New site looks nice, I'm back in town and noticed while trying to post a sighting that cut and paste from II is a mess and a look at some recent sightings suggest others are having the same issue. not sure if an upgrade issue or something else. Example:

This is what gets pasted over now: the boxes, the text all over the place.
You use to be able to just have to clean up white space......this will be a bit more of a PIA to clean up.

EDIT: Let me play with it more. I just realized after I posted this, the "all over the place" settles back in and looks ok on the actual post.

You are copy/pasting data that is formatted as a data table on the II site. I think what you are seeing initially is how your browser, in its composition window, interprets and displays the table. Some of the cells appear to be void of data, creating all that white space. To see how it will look when posted, after our software codes the page, click the Preview button below the composition window.

Scroll down to see the preview tacked on the bottom of the page (it was on the top of the page in the previous software).

Why is the KBV subforum under Hawaii always bold when there are no new posts? I always mark all forums read after each session. The next time I look at forums, this sub is bold, even when the Hawaii forum is not and there hasn't been anything new in the KBV forum since Dec. 21.

Thanks- but it is still different and I also tried with a different browser. I'm use to all the white space and needing to clear it out in order for the post to look nice. But, the jumbled mess while editing the white space out is a hassle.

I think you perhaps want to click the "Toggle BB Code" before pasting your text in to the post. It is that little gear button and it prevents markup formatting. So it just pastes the text. No white space to remove. Here is the results of what I did. Not intentionally trying to post a sighting, but this is Grande Vista, where there is always a lot of availability.

Thanks. As I don't have an II account, I had no access to the original II source to really investigate.

Thanks Dioxide, that is much better. Mine sets up a bit differently and I need to clear a bit of white space out, but nothing like it has been recently. This is how mine pastes...but is workable for me.

1. Is there a way to post two-dimensional polls? Multiple questions in a single poll, with each question having 2 or more responses.
2. Is there a way to post a Quiz to test TS knowledge? (Polls and quizzes are great traffic generators.)
3. Is there a TEST area on this BBS where one can play with BB codes, Polls, etc. without cluttering up regular forums?

You can always use the Preview button below the message entry area then scroll down to view the preview and see how the message would look. Only hit the 'Post reply' or 'Post thread' button if you want to actually post the message. Just close the window/tab or back out without posting if you don't want to actually post the message.

Also you can try things out in a private conversation post to a dummy user called test post. You can try things out without fear of accidentally posting publicly. If you actually hit the 'Start conversation' button it won't really go anywhere as I've turned conversation reception off for this dummy user, but the message will still clutter up YOUR conversation area.

the page number blocks should appear at the top and bottom of every page?

It has reverted back to displaying page numbers only at the bottom of the page.

Can you get it changed back again to both top and bottom of the page?

Thanks.

I think I've got the LMR dates showing everywhere they need to. :whooopie:
So the intermittent delays I've caused while working on this should be over. :banana:
Sorry, for slowing things down off and on today, and the occasional flashes of large red code in the LMR forums. I was back revisiting the LMR code because it was displaying a default "45 days in the future" line instead of the actual LMR date directly above the message entry box when viewing a thread. Looks like the revised code got it done.
