    New Help Forum

    I just created this new forum (1/21/08) as a place where members can discuss forum functionality. If you have a question about how to do something on the forum, you can ask it here. The answers won't necessarily come from me - other members can provide assistance also. Given the number of emails I get asking the same kinds of questions, I thought this forum might be useful.

    PS: You can also use this forum for discussing general computer issues as well.

    NOTICE: I have locked this thread because people were posting different questions as replies to this thread. It's better to start a new topic, with a descriptive title to ask questions. That way your question will have a better chance of being seen and responded to.

    Yes, just upload an animated GIF in you "My Stuff" >> "My Profile" area. However, to be honest, I'd prefer folks not use animation in their avatar or signature, becauwe frankly, they can be annoying for some folks.

    Re: New Help Forum

    Am still trying to post my first pics on the forum. You guys that do this as naturally as breathing leave me with my mouth agape. I have pictures off my camera in a folder in "my computer". I e-mailed some to myself as that was the only way I could downsize them. When (if) they show up in my mailbox can I post them from there? And if so, what dark spirits must I invoke to accomplish it. I appreciate your patience with me, but be forwarned that I am determined to master this, so your patience may be strained. Dale

    See if this video helps.

    If you still have trouble or have any questions, email or PM me with your phone # and I'll call and talk you through it.

    Re: New Help Forum

    I'm a new member.
    I have a problem with my TR6 and would like to ask members if they ever had such an issue. Where or how do I go to post it?
    Also,
    I would like to introduce myself to the forum but the "introduction" box doesn't have anywhere to do this.

    Cannon -

    First, welcome to the party!

    If you click on the "New Member Introduction" section, you should see the "New Topic" button. Click on that and post away.

    For a TR-specific question, do the same in the Triumph section.

    Glad you're aboard!

    What kind of OS are you using. I have a program that runs on the older ops ie; xp and Vista. It was and still is my favorite photo editor. No bugs, just a factory disc. It's PHOTO DELUXE. You can totally edit a photo, and make them better than original. I just rejoined yesterday after 3 MGB's 72/76/79, prior member of the Columbia SC Midlands Club. Let me know if you would like to use it. I might be able to copy as digital.

    Sounds like it might be your security settings are set too high. Not necessarily a bad thing, but that might be preventing your browser from remembering you via cookies.

    Re: New Help Forum

    Just wondering if the forum has an archive of posts in each car category??? So we can search a topic without having to ask the same questions over and over.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    If you go to advanced search, you can search the entire archive of posts going back 11 years. HOWEVER, while not asking the same question if it's already been asked sounds like a good idea - what would that do to forum activity? It would kill it. Also, when someone asks a question that has already been asked, some new person who wasn't here the first time may have some new spin on the answer that wasn't considered when the first thread was posted.

    I encourage people to use the search feature, but at the sometime, having an on-going conversation about these cars is really what the forum is all about - that and making new friends.

    Re: New Help Forum PASSWORD

    I'm using this password that was sent to me be the forum-bot.

    The message said that my old password will still work but I would rather change it.

    How do I do that?

    I went to Edit Pref and see a bunch of ************** for my password. If that is indeed the password that I chose I will never remember what it might be.

    Thanks
