baybjI can't seem to copy & paste gifs. I try and I try but it comes blank whenever I go to "paste" it. Help? :)

The easiest way is place your cursor over the image you want, and either right click and choose "copy image", OR with your cursor over the image, hold down the "Ctrl" button on your keyboard and click the letter "C".
Then go to the posting form and hold down the "Ctrl" button and click the letter "V". Your image should appear immediately.

Thanks shirley, I believe I was doing that before and tried it again and It still doesn't work. I wonder if it's because I'm on mozilla.

I don't think the issue is mozilla, although I am not using mozilla at the moment as I usually do, due to issues with the computer I am on-- I'm currently using google chrome.  (I just got a new computer, but haven't had time to set it up yet.)  Make sure you have the latest version of mozilla firefox, just in case.

Have you tried to post images using our posting toolbar? Copy the image's URL (right click then choose "Copy image URL", then in the posting toolbar, click the square with the mountain/sun. When it pops up, paste the URL into the "Image Info", click "OK", and then your image should display.

My posts keep showing up 2 or 3 times. I had to reload the page and I guess it posted my reply more than once. How do I make it stop??? After I click post I get a blank screen so I reload it and again another blank screen. I had to X out and go back in. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm sorry guys, seeing my posts over and over is annoying me like crazy!!!

If you are getting multiple posts you should be able to delete them, The option for that appears in the bottom left of your post after it appears in the thread.  If you are unable to delete them, PM me with the post URL's (click URL in the upper right of your post in the thread) and I can do it for you.  It does seem we are experiencing a glitch.  I do know that if you reload, that is the reason you are getting the multiple posts.

If you get a blank screen it is better to hit the back arrow on the tool bar of your browser, twice. You should then be able to see that your post has gone thru.

Viewing Member Profiles

You can view the profiles of your fellow GHH members by clicking on their avatars (or the icon where their avatar would be) on their posts.  There is a lot you can add to your own profile pages over time--which includes photo storage as mentioned above, and much more, if you wish.

I wonder if anyone else has had trouble posting.  After I typed out my post I click on Add Reply it takes me to the editor where I can preview or post.  Unfortunately the posting block is blank.  If I paste my post in there I get a another box that talks about my security settings in Firefox.  It lets you post in this box, but there is no formatting.   Shirley do you know what security settings I need to change?

Just as an FYI.  I used IE to post this one and I didn't get the security box.

Signatures

I carried over my signature from the old site, but forgot to change the font size/color and now I can't find it again to edit it! Can I edit it or should I create a new one? I can't even find it again to make a new one to begin with. Help!

 

You learn something new everyday.

Go to the top of the page (where the dark bar is), click "Panel". When the page opens up, look on the right site and click "Edit My Signature". Choose a signature you may already have listed and put a dot in the circle and choose Edit if you wish to edit it (including the colors/size), OR choose "Add a Signature". In both cases, after making changes/additions, be sure to click "Submit" or "Save"

Click on Add a Reply at the bottom of the page, BEFORE you attempt to post. After posting your message, scroll a bit and click post. Do not use the quick reply button, it is messed up. Or, simply click the Reply (or Quote button, if you wish to quote the person you are replying to) in the bottom right of any member's post. The latest versions of FireFox and Google Chrome are the most compatible browsers with our forum, and when posting from a cell phone, Safari seems to work just fine.

We Have Four Different Editors for Our Forum


Feel free to play with the different editors for your posting pleasure. smiley: roll Some may greatly prefer the WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get), but I know from experience that people have different likes, so some who are not comfortable with one editor for their posts may feel better with a different one.

To switch editors, go to your profile page and click the wrench icon at the top while there.
On the resulting page, click "forum"
Now on the forum page, look for "editor type", choose a different editor and click the save button to save the changes.  You can always change them back.
The original settings are:
Lefora 2.0 (BBCODE)

Cell Phone Users: Having Trouble Clicking the "Eye" Icon?

If you are having problems touching the "Eye" icon next to threads to be taken to where you left off in a thread where new replies have been added, it helps to stretch the screen with your fingers before touching the "Eye".

What is with the pintrest, fb and twitter at the top?
Good question!  Its just a way to share topic/threads/or specific posts on our forum and/or recommend them to those platforms, that you already use/have an account for, if you believe they would be of interest to others, much like you might use those options to share an article.
