Sorry, I edited my message after you read it. I thought I might have an insight but then I thought, probably only the advanced editor uses Javascript. You might have turned off Javascript as an option. I don't know why the WYSIWYG editor uses it. Highlight and Copy work fine for me.

Update: for me, the advanced WYSIWYG editor doesn't show anything at all with Javascript disabled.

Just use CTL+C to copy and CTL+V to paste.

Mr UT:

I would like to edit http://www.cellar.org/showpost.php?p...&postcount=105 but I cannot. I would like to attach the image in the thread, instead of merely link to it. It sometimes displays and sometimes not.

I'm really working with two questions here,

One -- why can't I edit all my messages? (even when I am logged in)

Two -- I think I understand the difference between linking to an image and attaching an image, but I don't know which you prefer, or why a linked image would sometimes fail to display.

Thanks in advance.

These work great, thanks.

Still don't understand the behavior of the other buttons/functions/etc.

You should be able to edit any message... but only up to a certain time. The idea is that editing should be limited to correct mistakes and that at a certain point the post is locked in.

If a linked image "sometimes displays, sometimes doesn't", it's probably a problem with your host. I prefer people use their own bandwidth for large things, unless they have hit the tip jar. Hosting the images locally is a great service for the message base itself and it's something I'm happy I can still provide. I'm working on an opportunity to put the Cellar into a co-location space with tons of bandwidth, which could improve what we are capable of here.

Another question, UT.

regarding the "search" function throughout the cellar, I see that it returns the threads that contain the search term, but which post contains the term is not clear. Do you have any suggestions as to how to find the post in the thread that contains the search term?

Thanks in advance.

The term is highlighted in red, if the thread is short.

On the search form, you can also change the results from "Threads" to "Posts".

Knew the red part, delighted to learn the threads to posts part. Never really dinked with the advanced search. Thank you Monkey! Happy, happy indeed!

I understand the point of not being able to edit after a certain time. But there's something from last year I particularly want to edit out, for peace of mind. How would I do this?
