May I have some help editing my TIME post? Can't Post

If it wasn't such a busy/high-profile date, I'd wait to fix it... but I think this one needs some TLC.


http://newboards.theonering.net/forum/gforum/perl/gforum.cgi?post=501301;sb=post_time;so=DESC;forum_view=forum_view_expanded;

Please remove "Frodo leaves the Shire."
September 22, 3018 (S.R. 1418)
1. Bilbo and Frodo's birthdays. Frodo leaves the Shire.
(not from the appendices)

or replace that whole section with this :)

September 22, 3018 (S.R. 1418)

Thanks very much :)






I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Are you sure you posted it? [In reply to] Can't Post

That link goes to you September 20 TIME, and I can't find your Septer 22 TIME in your posting history. Or is it right in front of me and I'm missing it?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

WOW! You guys are not only great [In reply to] Can't Post

but SUPER FAST! Thank you!

I'm really glad tylerfh caught that. I always try to pay close attention to the content, but totally dissed the subject lines. Live and learn.

I figured I had punished you enough all day, dernwyn. ;)

DANKA MUCHLY!

It still jumps me to the September 20 post. [In reply to] Can't Post

TORN is being Evil to me. *shakes fist in the server's general direction*

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

This is too freaky. [In reply to] Can't Post

Her link specifies post 501301, and in that thread Sept 20 is 500011 and Sept 22 is 501301.

It's like it's sending you back in time...can you see the Sept 21 and Sept 22 posts, from where that link takes you?

I have no idea if this is the reason but perhaps the 'complicated link' is causing problems [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been under the impression that using the links we can find by clicking 'shortcut' is not only a shorter link but it's a 'cleaner' link without a lot of command code the original person has called for but the rest of us don't need (I might not have explained that correctly.)

For comparison, here's the link gramma posted (first) and the shortcut link (second)

http://newboards.theonering.net/forum/gforum/perl/gforum.cgi?post=501301;sb=post_time;so=DESC;forum_view=forum_view_expanded

http://newboards.theonering.net/forum/gforum/perl/gforum.cgi?post=501301#501301

Here Ataahua, I'll make the shortcut link clickable. See if it behaves differently for you than gramma's link.

There it is! [In reply to] Can't Post

The Sep 22 post in all its glory. Nicely deduced, Magpie. :)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Well... whether we understand the 'why' of it... I guess this just goes to show... [In reply to] Can't Post

it truly is the best practice to use that shorthand link.

For those reading this that don't know what I'm talking about, the shorthand link is found by looking under the avatar / user name region.

One sees an indication of how long ago the post was made and how many views it has had.

Then there's a link identified as 'shortcut'.

You can use this one of two ways:

1)
a. click the shortcut link
b. go up to the address bar where you see the url starting with 'newboards.theonering.net....'
c. swipe (highlight), copy
d. paste where you want to display the address as a link to that post

2)
a. right click the link
b. choose: copy link address (or something like that if it's called something different in your browser) --- this action accomplishes what you did in steps 1a through 1c
c. paste where you want to display the address as a link to that post
