Nice work setting the forum up Paul.

It may be right in front of me but does the forum have the option to use a dark theme? Bright white can be pretty hard on the eyes!

Hi OreBound and thank you for joining. ThumpUp

You couldn't change it, but you can now because I just enabled it.

Once you are logged in:
  • Go to My Profile (At the top of the screen)
  • Go to Edit Profile (Left hand side)
  • Scroll down to the bottom and there should be an option to 'Select your preferred theme'
  • Click on the save button and it will update with that theme


There are some dark ones in there and some "funky ones" too. To change it back to the default theme, select 'YAF Pro'.
Let me know if you can't find one that is dark enough and I will go on the hunt for some more themes.

Enjoy the weather!

I think most people enjoy the chatter about 'climate drivers'. It would be useful if it was not hidden and had a dedicated position that is easily viewed and accessed.
I love the use of clouds in the background. It reminds me of our old home which many of us missSad
I like the way this forum is shaping up and too boot a climate change thread is permitted.ThumpUp
Thanks. and hoping we will have many years of forum friendly chatter.
regards to all

Wondering who will get honors for the first post and conversation on the Tasmanian and south Australian thread.
I would love to see those threads come alive. Smile


Noticing that when you select the latest post the link takes you to the first page of the thread instead of the the latest post which is a tad annoying. Could that be changed Paul?
regards

Hey moved over from wz.
Is there any chance of an earthquake thread. While its a slow thread it did get interest on weatherxone.
Ps really like this thread well done. I think as more ex WZ uses find out about it there will be a big shift

Hi Paul
Help please? Can't figure out how to change my username. Doesn't seem to be available in Edit Profile, but may have missed it.
During registration I didn't realise I should've used a user name rather than my real name.
Cheers.

Hi 28Degrees,

In theory this should be fixed for you.

Enjoy the weather!

I will see if I can get a photo of her in her code disrupting keyboard walking.

Glad you could join us. Feel free to post as much as you want and if you want to share pictures and do not want to store them elsewhere and just link to here, you can upload them to our servers using the paperclip icon/button and we host them for you. This is handy when some photo hosting sites are starting to charge.

Thanks Pail. I tried the paperclip button this morning. It uploads the file from your computer .I did notice you have to drag and drop the picture into the drop file here box . The file then gets automatically inserted into your conversation.Then preview your upload .BigGrin

Thanks admin or whoever tweeted me tonight about your aussie site. I am in Nebraska US of A and work night shift.
I have a massive interest in volcanoes geology etc but also the effect on climate.
I will start a post and put you on my now growing list of people to contact when a big one goes off.
I have a passing interest in hurricanes if time permits

BTW admin.
I have an outlook email account and it put your registration link in my spam folder.

I think I have worked it out on an Android tablet, so I assume it would work on an iPad too. I can't drag and drop on a tablet, however the "Add Button" allows me to view files and attach that way. Mustn't forget to press the upload button afterwards though, like I did the first time.

Hi Colmait,

I love your photos in the Cloud Appreciation topic.
I have added the .jpeg extension to the upload box thingy, so you should be able to post those images now.

That is awesome Paul.

Thanks very much. Unfortunately on the ipad I cant change the format or file name. The only way was throwing it into a new file in one of the apps. Adding the jpeg will solve that. ThumpUp
But I will be using the computer more now that I have fixed a few corrupted files etc. It is running extremely fast again. .

But thank you very much. Makes it easier while out chasing etc and you can upload straight away from your phone. I should get another mobile wifi again and use the laptop.

Cheers.

Colin

Almost a Gemma moment



Trying to see how to upload a youtube. The BB takes up a whole page of wording. Not sure if that is working correctly yet.
