Hi, Vesuvio. I've never used the PM function, so I just tried it out and I notice that when you compose a message there is a choice of icons you can append, such as the radioactive symbol, a heart, a flame, etc. So it doesn't have any particular meaning except in the mind of the sender. :)

Thank you Geoff!

I cannot believe I have never seen that line of symbols before—tunnel vision or what?

Many thanks, V :)

V... I don't know what those little PM icons mean either... or some of them
The sender opts to put the icon on the message... I've had them with question marks... hearts... etc... which is all self explanatory, but I have no clue what that one means
Why don't you ask the sender?
LOL Maybe they don't know either! :grire:

EDIT:
Well I was a bit late!

Zeroeffect, that seems to make sense.

When I look at my Inbox, the messages are usually marked with:
PM 1.jpg
blue for a message I have read and red for a new one. The blue symbol also marks messages in my Sent messages.

Today I noticed that some of my messages (in both areas) are marked:
PM 2.jpg
with an additional "radioactive sign" superimposed on the basic symbol.

Does anyone have any idea what this means, please?

Best wishes, V :?:

Might the Radioactive symbol be a reel of a tape? Just a thought :reflechir:

Hello Owl,

I'm afraid the sender didn't know she done it! As for being all-seeing, surely that talent belongs to the owl not the volcano—I'm dormant, my eyes are almost shut!

Now that does make more sense!

Thank you, V :)

Hey all,

How does one go about posting a picture of something like Segovia playing his guitar?

Hello Summer,

When you post reply, you get a blue box to type in, at the bottom of the box, underneath save, preview and submit you'll see another blue section with options, next to where it says options there is a tab you can click on called Upload attachment press that and you'll be requested to type in a filename. You can press browse and find a picture on your PC, then press add to file.

In addition to both of these, there's a white box with an arrow in the right hand column next to the name of the last poster. This will take you to the very last post in the thread.

Thanks Geoff. I was going to ask about.

Boy, there's lots out there I didn't know, and not just about the forum. :oops:

Changing the Board Language

Post by Vesuvio » Thu Jan 17, 2008 4:30 pm

Did you know that you can display the forum's boards in English, Français, Italiano, Português, Português (Brasil) and Español?

Simply go to your User Control Panel, select Board Preferences and Edit Global Settings. You may then choose one of the above languages! Similarly, for example, an English speaker registered with the French forum can display that forum's boards in English. Unfortunately this does not translate the posts!

If you want to join one of the other forums, you can change its language settings to help you through the registration process.

At the top of any of our pages, click the flag of the forum you want to join. Click the Registration Button at the top right, between FAQ and Login. Accept the conditions which appear by clicking on the left hand button at the foot of the text. When the window refreshes, select a language from the drop down list halfway down the form. The terms and conditions automatically reappear in your chosen language, accept them again and the registration form is translated for you.

My thanks to all who helped clarify my understanding of the multilingual feature,

Best wishes, V :)

How to embed a reference showing the title of the thread rather than the URL.
Unfortunately the title (other text) we have to write by ourselves. Another option is copy and paste.

The syntax:
[url =http://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/.....] text [/url] without space between "url" and "=" sign

"Quote" this example to see that in editor
Can a break from practice be a good thing?

Embedding a link to another post in your post


1. Go the the post you want to link to and right click on the title IN THAT POST
2. Select copy link location
3. Paste the link in your post.


If you want your post to show the actual thread name or have a descriptive phrase rather than the raw URL, ie
Compendium of Forum Knowledge
or
see this post
versus
viewtopic.php?f=42&t=24921

1. Click the URL button in the post options buttons.

2. Do a paste. The link will appear between the "" ie "[ url]viewtopic.php?f=42&t=24921[/url]"

3. Replace the first ] with an "=" sign , add the closing bracket at the end of the link and type in the text ie

[ url]viewtopic.php?f=42&t=24921[/url]
becomes
[ url=viewtopic.php?f=42&t=24921]Compendium of Forum Knowledge[/url]
