Just a thought ... have we seen Fairy today? 

Hope she's not been blown away by Henry .... she's such a slip of a thing and those wings do catch the wind .......

Oooh yes KEF - could we have it at Pdoc's do you think? 

He's got a big garden - we could get him a log cabin couldn't we - we wouldn't annoy the neighbours .....promise

Hi Natalie L

If you're trying to upload a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions ... if it doesn't work let us know

SGL  - hopefully when all the improvements happen you'll see the benefit

Fingers very crossed!

Or Fairygirl has my email address - if you have hers or she has yours we might be able to sort something out ........

Happy to have the phacelia flowers as they are and I'll see what I can do with them. 

The problem is that at the moment PMs aren't working so I can't send you my address ... we'll have to wait until the Tech Team have sorted it out.

Thanks for remembering

Adding a photo to an existing post

You can only edit (or add to) a post if there is not a subsequent post. 

To edit/add hover your cursor over the bottom right corner of the window containing your post and click on Edit - your post will then appear in another window and you can edit in there. 

To add a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where your type your post.

Not sure of any particular iPad idiosyncrasies I'm afraid, but I'm sure someone who does will be along soon. 


Edited to add:  Lyn beat me to it - I stopped to answer the phone

In case you've not seen it, Nora's told us that the first step to improving the forum is happening today ... one of the things that slows the site down is the length of some of the threads - she's going to lock this Hello Forkers thread sometime very soon and start another one - and this will happen every time the thread gets to 1,000 posts or so. 

There'll be a link to take us straight to the new thread, and we'll still be able to read the old ones so we can refer back to earlier stuff

I think it's a really good idea - anything to make things go more smoothly.

She's also checking on progress re PMs and Avatars etc.
