There was some giant update last night, and now I can assess the gallery.

First time that I remember an upgrade that did something of use to me.

Waiting to find out what the collateral damage is, however-------

Hi Herbie :old dude:



We wait with baited breath !



Has Bill's latest round of microchip mayhem met with your approval or not ?

Is he back on your Christmas card list ?

Would you recommend 'Windows-10' to the worlds unsuspecting future victims out there ?

I still find certain "features" grossly annoying.
Heck, at this stage of life I find lots of things fit that category.
Some people too, but none of the crew here.
The "golden age" is more like corroded brass.


Having vented that, I would say that if someone wants to wallow in the internet swamp, Firefox works well for me.

As for Mr Gates, I wish that things were back in the Windows-7 daze.
Windows-10 mucked a lot of things up for me, but I guess that I'm stuck with that.

I bought an Apple computer, I took it back after a week.
Found that instructions consisted of paragraphs of how wonderful the thing was, but not how to use it.
Definitely soured me on Apple.
Have an IPad, but use it for Facetime only.
Anytime I try to do something else with it, I have to get someone to straighten the blasted thing out.

Enough, Herb--enough! Shaddup!

I will now now get some cardboard to hack up.

This does not represent the opinions of the management.
They like mustard, I like catsup.

Hi Guys :wave:



The 'Board-Themes' available in My Account 'Preferences' ie. 'Sea', 'Ultra', 'Simple' & 'AIblue' ...

... have all been returned back, to how they should be.



This mainly means, that now the 'Gallery' button in the top ^ Menu-Tab ...

... appears as it should do, in all 4 'Board-Themes'.



Similarly, the 'G' button at the top of the 'Main Reply Window' ...

... now appears in all 4 'Board-Themes' as it should do also.



:)



Si.

A little question

I've noticed that in my recent postings all the extra lines I put in between paragraphs to make my postings more legible are being striped out when I post, so the text just becomes a block.

Is this just me or is it a new forum "feature"

I'm on the latest Chrome release on Windows 10

Sounds like its a "feature" of your computer setup

You can use the main reply window PREVIEW button to see how text from your browser will appear in your post

You can also use the EDIT button at any time after posting to change the text you have posted


:f:

Microsoft Edge did that to me for a while.  

After a much needed update it no longer did that.

" Now, maybe you can help me:

I would love to get eMail notification when there is something new Posted to Threads I want to follow. 

Is there a way to get that done in Freerails ?

How ?

Thank you.

Daniel "



Hi Daniel  :wave:



Yes indeed, there are numerous features to customise the eMails which you receive from Freerails.



At the bottom of each Thread-Page, there is a button called  'WATCH TOPIC'

Hit that button & you will receive an eMail from Freerails each time a new Post is made in that Thread.



There are further eMail customising features available when you hit the  'MENU'  button, at the top of every Freerails Page.

Then hit  'MY ACCOUNT' ...

... where you will see your personal Account settings & preferences buttons & options.



The eMails you choose to get from Freerails can be changed & customised using 3 of the  'MY ACCOUNT'  option buttons ...

'WATCHED TOPICS'

'WATCHED FORUMS'

'PREFERENCES'



On the  'WATCHED TOPICS'  Page, you can manage your choice of which ones send you an eMail when new replies are Posted.

Simply use the 'select / de-select' check-boxes to choose ...

... & then always remember to hit the  'SAVE'  button at the bottom of the Page !



On the  'WATCHED FORUMS'  Page, you can do the same, this time choosing & managing eMails you may wish to receive from an entire Forum ...

... & after choosing any Forums you want to watch, hit the  'SAVE'  button at the bottom of the Page !



The 3rd of the eMail setting options available under the  'MENU'  button, in  'MY ACCOUNT',  is  'PREFERENCES'  ...

... where there are 5 more options you can choose from, including several more eMail choices.

Again, after using the 'select / de-select' check-boxes, hit  'SAVE'  at the bottom of the Page !



So ...



The  'WATCH TOPIC'  button, at the bottom of each Thread, is easy to hit & will get eMails sent to you after using it.

Then managing the eMails you choose to receive from Freerails is easy, after hitting the  'MENU'  button & then  'MY ACCOUNT'  button ...

... then either the  'WATCHED TOPICS'  button, the  'WATCHED FORUMS'  button, or  'PREFERENCES'  button.



BINGO !  



:cool:




Si.
