Got ragged on for too many commas, as pauses, and started adding ellipsis.
And smilies to annoy the nerds.

Hm. For some weird reason (actually, am trying to avoid studying for tomorrow's final in 17th C. Brit Lit as is mind-numbing) I am clicking around on different things here in the Cellar and clicked on "View Forum Leaders" and the message told me I didn't have clearance to view this...I thought I'd just get a list of the mods...is this James Bond stuff?

I think this is because there ARE no "forum leaders". I should remove that link.

That vBulletin Message always hurt my feelings. What, I'm not good enough?

Would it be possible to add more options to the "Find Posts From" section of Advanced Search? Like multiple years?

That ought to be do-able, although keeping all the features straight when migrating from version to version is getting to be a real pain. A lot of them have to be manually migrated each time.

Someone (maybe tw?) mentioned looking at posts from 2002 and 2003, and I got a bit curious, but there's no easy way to do so by username. It's just a whim, so no worries if it's more hassle than it's worth

How do you embed (is that the right word) a link to a site, or another thread, covered up by a word? For example, someone will say

here

and when you click on linkable "here" you go to a site or thread?

I read the directions but I guess I'm missing something!

Thanks!

Highlight the section you want to be a link

Press the "Insert Link" button, which is the globe with a chain link on it

Insert the URL, with the http part. Hit OK.

For any feature, just quote an example to see how it was done.

Oh, simple, huh?

Flint, I don't think I understand what you just said!

only put[ ] around the /url
