Yes, I have as I regularly do. Versioning is traditionally done in this format - x.y.z where x = major, y = minor, z = bugfixes

I was just checking - Loaded my iPad this morning, and was fairly intrigued by the new menu bar, which I didn't think was there yesterday.

Thanks for the info Smile

I am a bit puzzled as to why the forum index menu item now shows up under 'Correspondence', would have thought it should have been under 'Content' ?

Add 'New Forum Posts'.
I wouldn't have necessarily classified new posts as correspondence, rather active content perhaps?

PMs and New PMs are correctly classified as corresepondence though Smile

Forum related topics, as with news comes under correspondence because we are corresponding with various rail operators. Be it directly, IE: through the forums, or indirectly as the case is with the news system.

Can't agree with that. The forums are the content of Railpage, they are not correspondence in any form. They are also probably the most used section, and as such it would make sense for them to be the first menu selection in the menu bar.

Who is corresponding with 'various rail operators', all I ever seem to encounter are foamers?

Huh?
That is news to me.
This is a privately run rail related forum, and nowhere does it constitute an offical channel of communication with rail operators.
Consequently, I have no idea what you are on about.

People in the industry still post here, do they not?

I'm posting what I got from it, the placement of the "Correspondence" menu bit makes perfect sense.

Perhaps "Rail operators" was the wrong term to use... I meant "Those that work in the industry" - RP is used as a channel to communicate with those in-the-know.

Do you even know what Correspondence is, its the lately lost art of communicating between persons using the writting of letters and or memos from one person to another.

Ground Control to s3 gunzel , what aren't you understanding?

People from the rail industry post here, but UNOFFICIALLY!!!!!
Railpage is NOT, again, NOT, an official channel of communication between posters, and ANY rail operator.

Doctors post here, but that does make this an official communication channel between posters and the Health Department.
Carpenters, electricians, plumpbers, interior decorators post here, post here, but that does not make this an official communication channel between posters and the Housing Industry. Get the point??
People who work for rail operators post here, but that does not make this an offical communication channel.

People post here items of interest. If any have queries for rail operators, they are quickly told to email or ring them direct.
People post here unofficially. And posters who reveal where thay work are quickly advised not to.

So again, Railpage is NOT an official form of communication between poster and any rail operator.

Whoa there...cool it, chief. There are some people here who post officially.

The dictionary definition of "correspondence" is communication by exchange of letters. Given that forum posts are analogous to postal letters and news items are analogous to newsletters, the name fits.

michaelgreenhill

I don't see that forum posts are similar to letters....hardly anything I post here would be worthy enough of being sent to anybody via Australia Post-there would be no point to it. Forums are more of a chatty style rather than as an exchange of letters.

But I was waiting for you to post, Michael, and you have spoken.
So I will retire from this particular point of the thread, and let your post be the last word on the matter Smile

What the blazes am I doing wrong in this thread that I can't get pix from my Photobucket gallery to post properly ConfusedMadEvil or Very MadConfused

I was trying to edit my post of 25-2-2011 so the pix would show again.

You appear to have wrapped an IMG tag with a URL tag and with another IMG tag. Fixed.

There are two links which appear to be correctly wrapped in URL tags. The first one works, but the second one when clicked tries to send you to the word "here". This has been happening for a while. Please fix.

Just noticed I can now post from my phone again, thanks for fixing that Michael!

The post in that thread that's giving grief sounds like the latest one, mine. I used that method, wrapping is it QuestionConfused that as an end result gives a clickable "word" leading to the URL in lieu of the URL itself.

FWIW, I had a similar problem to Graham's the other day, where the poster had made the link word "this". I wound up with a blankish page called this.com Laughing

Thanks for that Michael Smile

I can't imagine how that happens, because I'm using the method recommended by Photobucket for boards etc. You click on the link marke IMG code, it then copies it ready for pasting it where you will.

Your thoughts as for a method that will work for me (and not have me come howling to you each time I wannapostapic) would be most welcome.

Photobucket gives you IMG tags in upper case. These don't work on RP, you have to replace them with lower case 'img'.

I use Photobucket for my photos on this site and have not encountered this error to my knowledge.

Rather than click on the "Insert an image" or "Insert a link" icons, I simply copy and paste the IMG link provided by Photobucket into my message and it seems to work fine, and that is with upper case IMG tags.

Here is an example from a recent post with [ and ] substituted with { and } for illustration:

The image BBCode tags shouldn't make a difference. Any decent BBCode parser will parse it as long as its spelt right, upper case or not (Personal experience) - As I said previously, The RTE does funny things to http:// links.
