I am finding that once I post a comment, I can no longer figure out how to edit a post when I have realized I still made a spelling error despite proof reading before I originally posted. Can anyone help here?
Click the small "gear" in the top right of your post and that will allow you to edit or delete it.
More about the forum software.
Some of you were asking about quoting and the other editing features of the old forums. I recently noticed that in the little annotation below the text box that says "You can use Markdown in your post," the word "Markdown" is a link which you can follow to read about Markdown if you want or until your eyes glaze over.
It turns out "Markdown" (there are several versions) is what I would call HTML "light" (HTML, hyper-text markup language, is a common computer formatting language used in websites, etc.). Unlike HTML, Markdown has a very extremely limited number of features and is really not suited for publishing.
Obviously one of those features of the old forum was a more robust "Quote" (I posted how to do a workaround). You also probably noticed that other text formatting such as "underline" and "text color" are also missing. (I used both with the old forum to make links stand out)
I found a way to do underline but have not been successful figuring out how to change the color of text.
To underline text, type a less-than symbol "<", the letters "ins" then a greater than symbol ">" then the text to be underlined followed by "<" "/" "ins" ">" (do not type the quotation marks.
One small step . . . . .
