Think they were always there. They have been for me in any case. And I did actually have a post reported once too - I won't say who did it or who was reported but I gave everyone the benefit of the doubt and put it down to butterfingers.

Only once! Good grief we are becoming soft in our old age, we used to get a lot of reported posts on the Beeb.

I only saw those buttons for the first time yesterday as well and wondered where they'd appeared from.

I must have pressed something over in the admin pages. But they should always have been there really so it's just as well.

Is there any chance of getting a 'search' box? I can't find an old thread I'm looking for.

There's a "search" option on the list of stuff under the banner. Have you tried it?

Images in forum threads, when clicked upon once, will now open in a "lightbox" for easier viewing. This means that a pop-up will be generated featuring a framed version of the selected image as the below pic illustrates (or even click on this picture to see for yourself how it works):



The "x" in the top right corner of the pop-up will return you to normal viewing.

I bet you were a framer in an earlier existence. And please get on with the prayer bit after the symbolic face wash stuff. I shall pop up and get cross in all corners..... just to let you know I'm still here. P.

100. mulberry handbags





Sorry, that was me on the PG thread.

A Mulberry handbag - and large bling cross - are de rigueur for the fashionable do-gooder this autumn.

When *did* women start carrying handbags (as opposed to dainty little evening bags for the hanky and the smelling salts?) Perhaps a good thread there.

No, I've never seen that button ID. What happens, is if I'm logged on for more than a few minutes, then log out it says I'm still logged on for about another hour.

PS I had a horrendous job posting the medieval volcano, because whenever I previewed and checked the link, the system would log me out, even though I hadn't logged out [ naturally it still said I was logged in]

Jethro Tull went all commercial once Boxing Day arrived so I've ditched Mr Anderson and company's radio widget from the shortcuts page. However the observant amongst you may have noticed a new "recommended site" - Ancient FM, a great outfit which plays everything from Gregorian chant to Irish Baroque (as well as some mean madrigals, motets and other minnesinger montages en route). As you can see they've been on the go a while (copyright 1509) but since the fall of the Holy Roman Empire they've been struggling funds wise. So, as they say themselves, any spare groats, farthings etc will be gratefully received by the volunteers who run it.

It is free to listen to them and they have no ads - just click on the link and it will open in a new window for everyone with flash player installed on their machine (if you can see You Tube videos then you have it). Enjoy!

That's a great addition, thanks, it's playing now. All I get is the 'ancient fm' logo and the sound bar, there's nothing else on the page. Should there be more?

While finding it, I noticed on the 'literature' widget an intriguing heading - "What to do with your new Kindle Fire" Now I know that that tablet has its critics but really, isn't that a bit extreme if not damn near impossible.

Nope, that's it (and I like it for that).

If you go to their website you won't find much more either.

For some reason Google is currently not bringing up results for this forum. If you type in 'Res Historica' it just brings up links to a Polish website. Even if you type in 'Res Historica historyboard' or 'Res Historica history board'- still nothing doing. Worth investigating?

P.S. Typing in 'Res Historica Norwegian forum', however, does bring up one link, which is to this page.

Can we push it up by 'doing a Google' each time we come to RH? There are outfits that specialise in keeping stuff up front. I am always getting pushy offers on my site to do this.

Well spotted, you're right, 'Res Historica history forum' brings us up on page 2. and Res Historica at the very bottom of page 3. Is this because we've changed our URL? Time for the boss to get down into the basement again?

Ours not to reason why ...

Google apparently has just undergone a penguin update. A similar panda update a while back knocked us for six that time too but after a few days of botting by Google we reappeared.

And no, I haven't a clue what a penguin or panda update is.

I've checked with Google and the site is still indexed, so we can only wait and see what happens.

Not in China they're not. They are showing Ke Lin and Yongyong panda porn to get them in the mood.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/9932362/Panda-porn-shown-in-attempt-to-get-two-to-mate.html

Honestly. Embarassed

PS I think Yongyong is a great name for a panda.

While we're discussing technical adjustments: You cannot embed a previously embedded video using the "youtube" wraparound code. If you wish to embed it then you need to go to You Tube, open the video, and then copy the displayed URL name (without the word "embedded" embedded in it).

Seems the databases holding our site content were in trouble earlier today. Session tables had maxed out and needed repair from Forumotion. Apologies to anyone who tried logging in while they were down.

I didn't have any trouble logging in, but when I sent the three photos on the This Day in History thread, I had to repeat the letters they had put there for security, which has never happened here before. (And of course although they were quite clear I got it wrong, not quite realising it mattered whether they were in upper or lower case.)

I was up early and on before the crack of dawn this morning, and noticed there were problems. I could still access this site but it was taking a while to load. In fact it wasn't just this site, all the internet was very sluggish this morning for a couple of hours. Seems to be operating ok now though.

The site is not working properly, or is it my computer?

Keep getting: "Can't display the website" - which is really disconcerting.

Oh, so it wasn't only me then? I just rebooted because it was taking ages to upload my message and image for the caption challenge, so I thought the ram had run low on memory.

The site is operating well now though.

Am having problems replying to Catigern and AR on the Princes in the Tower thread. Won't let me quote. Is it my computer, or is there a problem with the site?

Happened yesterday too - I typed a reply, but couldn't preview or send. I gave up.

Possibly because Lenny has been using the thread as his litter tray?

Will try again later.

I noticed it too and see that others also have been complaining about access to other forumotion sites, both yesterday and today.

No need to reboot ID, just curse loudly and hit your machine with a hammer. It won't give you access but you'll feel better.

I got fed up waiting for forumotion to provide a proper search facility for this site so I decided I'd make my own.

Under the Res Historica widget on the "shortcuts" page there's now a little box powered by Google which will sift through all the text we've managed to accumulate and find matches for whatever you put in. Handy if you're trying to access a point or remark that you or someone else made yonks ago but now can't remember in which thread it might have been.

It wasn't me who broke the reply editor function - it was Forumotion who host this site and they've done it across the board for all websites. At the moment they're being deluged with complaints and - being a French outfit - have only now after three days begun to acknowledge that maybe the three individuals who designed these "improvements" actually did a crap job and that the four hundred thousand people who thus far have complained might actually have a point.

It will be a little while, I imagine, before the bugs are distinguished from the incompetency and then I can safely go about fixing things here. In the meantime I can only ask people to be patient.

There seems to have been a miracle and I can now see things much more clearly.

I'm not sure if it is God or nordmann who has done this wonderful thing,  but whosoever has effected the improvement - thank you.

I've incorporated the map motif into more of the background and tried to eliminate that dull grey colour that inserted itself everywhere. I'm also trying to find a font common to all Operating Systems that better denotes "history" while retaining legibility.

Let me know what you all hate about the changes .....
