I can't post photos now from the laptop. Can someone  please explain what to do once you click the camera icon? It brings up my photo gallery on the computer, but then what?  

Yours sincerely,

Confused of Clarkston

Morning all/afties Pat.

Congrats to you and the family Yvie - he looks a smasher! 

I'll talk quietly B'man 

I thought I'd try posting a pic but I can't get it to work. I presume when I click the camera icon and bring up my photos, something else should happen, but it doesn't.  I 'll have to get daughter to look at it.    

Hope Lyn is ok today and yesterday went as well as these things can.

Have a good day all. 

Am I too late

In a word - no!

You can plant anything that's in a pot at any time of year unless the ground's waterlogged or frozen.

I'm assuming it's a reasonable size of plant though, and not a tiny cutting or very young plant  in a 3" or 4" pot. They would need potting on until they get bigger.

I agree KT53 - that was excellent for long threads, especially the Hello Forkers one as it can amass several pages in a few hours on a wet day!

I find it odd that there's a 'start new thread' function at the bottom of the page, but no 'latest post' or followed thread' ones! They're a real must have. It's one of the features the old format didn't have and people wanted.

I think the sizing of the layout is the biggest issue. An unnecessary change. 

Garden Pictures 2016

BL - the garden's looking superb. I think anyone visiting will be delighted with it. Hope the weather stays fair for you - always nice when people can wander without needing rainproofed 

B'cupdays - just shows how much harder it is to garden in a higher, more exposed spot, but your garden is proof that you can have a successful, beautiful place.  You achieve so much in a short season.

Hi Lucid - it's the new, soft young stems which wind round the supports - or the rest of the plant, or other plants nearby! 

If you take a close look, you'll see the tiny little stems wrap themselves neatly, and tightly round whatever is next to them

Morning all/afties Pat.

Posy - on the old format you just clicked on the green arrow beside the name of the last person who had posted.  

I think the consensus is that some things have been changed in an unhelpful way when they didn't need change at all. It was mainly the photo posting from other devices and a few minor extras that were needed. Bit disappointing 

Off to work for me - hope you all have a good day and not too many headaches navigating here!

Camera Dove. Haven't tried it yet though.

No Verd - it's been wet overnight. At least it's a little warmer. perhaps it will stay in double figures today. I can dream....

The 'last thread read' function was very useful on longer threads

obelixx and clari - I had the same issue with the latest posts, which is what I generally use. As LG says, you have to go back to the initial forum page and click the latest posts link there. I reported it and Nora said it's a glitch and will be sorted today. Hopefully that will be the case.  

The scrolling is a big problem. As already said by others, the format before allowed a user to see a good amount of posts quickly and make a decision as to which ones to look at and comment on. I think that's the first problem that needs addressed as it seems to be the biggest bugbear reported. The colour I could live with, but the font colour is too pale. 

I use an adblocker anyway but it still means you just have half the page in use, so not really an advantage.
