|Any way to simplify the U/IPOSTER: David Churbuck Email — POSTED: 01/16/05 — 12:33:12 PMLinc,Can you change the posting options from "add a paragraph" to a simple "reply"? The options are a bit technical -- html tags, image upload, etc. -- and the thread concept is kind of broken. For instance: if I want to start a thread on "CMYC 100 Book" I see no way to do so. Am I correct that the "topic" of CMYC 100 is the thread -- and that all topical responses will be willy-nilly and not associated with a first post? Am I being clear?The digest is really useful, but the U/I is pretty non-standard for people accustomed to bbs software like UltimateBB or vBulletin. Not suggesting a wholesale replacement, but perhaps reducing the options for posting, putting a reply tag directly on each posting and having a way to associate related replies to the original post would induce more people to use this grea ttool.Give me a ring if you want to discuss.DC|

Description?POSTER: Philip Odence Email — POSTED: 01/15/05 — 05:42:52 PMLinc,Anyway to increase the size of the window into which we type paragraphs. Anyway to make the formating easier? It doesn't seem that user friendly.
User Account Sign-up ProcessPOSTER: Lincoln Jackson Email — POSTED: 12/01/04 — 04:08:59 AMIt appears that a small percentage of people are having difficulties completing the sign-up process. The way the process works is:
| ||Click on the URL in the automatic email|
You don't need to change your password as the last page suggests but in order to remember it you probably should. Remember, you'll have read-write access to all discussion forums by default. Feel free to contact me through the contact form if you want me to create an image gallery section for you and your family or if you don't understand something else.

Cotuit Tide CalendarPOSTER: Lincoln Jackson Email — POSTED: 09/29/04 — 09:01:39 AMFor those inetrested, I have completed a Cotuit tide calendar. Obviously I could augment this to be able to take race schedule information. Maybe by next season. At the very least we can tell what the tides and weather are going to be now.
If you are wondering why the tides start on September 18, this is when I grabbed the tide data.
Administrative Access/ControlPOSTER: Lincoln Jackson Email — POSTED: 09/28/04 — 12:18:27 PMBy default everybody has minimal administrative access and control. If anybody is interested in being able to update other parts of the site, which I would expect for the various skiff class association officers, let me know.
Digest Email Format Now Plain TextPOSTER: Lincoln Jackson Email — POSTED: 09/24/04 — 09:10:26 AMI have changed the digest email format to plain text to avoid any conflicts with SPAM filters and email programs that have trouble displaying HTML. A couple of you mentioned that you were having problems. Please let me know if you still are having problems.
Here's how to add with imagesPOSTER: Lincoln Jackson Email — POSTED: 09/23/04 — 05:59:57 AM
Once you choose the option "add a paragraph to this thread" (image to right) select "with uploaded images" (first image below). The Tip to the right also explains the options. You can also upload files or enter a bulleted list of "things". On the next screen select a layout for the image(s) and number of images to upload (second image below). Last, enter the text and attach the image (third image below). Note how images of similar size and dimension look the best in terms of page layout. Good luck.
