I have tried every avenue to change my profile picture. I hit browse and get the new picture on but cannot seem to get it on the profile itself. There are blank boxes under the profile picture -- I have checked all these boxes but still come up frustrated and empty. I do like the editing tools for pictures the new board has added. Can we also insert pictures in our messages from a web site as we use too? (sorry about tto vz to but I have no backspace option and as a mac user no button bar for spell ceck and such when I go to edit) I store my images on a site that lets me download them other places-will I be able to go to that site and download any of those photos into my message. Can we use a larger font and colors as in the past with our messages.? Thank you theljoy This font size is very sa small for our age group to read

Profile pictures are currently having some issues, we hope to have it fixed this weekend but no promises.

 

I've reported your problem with missing buttons, might be a Mac issue.

 

To view messages with a larger font you can change this  by editing your profile, the option is located towards the bottom. It will not however increase font size in the posting box but I've passed that suggestion along.

 

We're limiting colors to red and black for now.

still testing

f I am trying to type in a larger font. On this board last is first ff (and) first is last -- I miss the count of messages as well. Is there a count or cut off point where youcan no longer read past messages? In the past boards where archieved at 3000 posts. Questions quet questions. LOL

To add an image to your message from a website, try RIGHT clicking on the image, select COPY, then in the message text RIGHT click where you want to insert the image and selecte PASTE.

Thankyou for yoour quick reply. I have inserted an image from my storage web site. I wait to see if it remains as I have inserted it. I tried code for larger print & that did not work so well -- so I will refrain from that. It appears we Mac user have some issues but look forward to them being ironed out as I know they are being worked on. Thn Thanks again

Well I finally got here!

What a trial.  I sure don't like the new format yet.  I hope I get used to it!!  It may take time.  I finally found out what my trouble was, AOL won't send links, at least sometimes they won't, so I missed the link to renew my passwordIt is nice to have the board back at all, I guess we should be grateful after all it is a gift.

We finally got some rain last night, not much but enough to measure.  .2 of an inch.

My weight this morning is 126 up four pounds, so I am back to really watching it.  It is going to be a constant battle for me.  I hate that, but apparently it is necessary.  One meal off the plan and back again for a week.  I had hoped to have a little more lattitude.  I have been walking for a halfhour with weights and a half hour without, every other day.  So far I am up to 3.3 pound weights.  I keep them moving for the whole half hour, but I don't try to walk fast, I count on the weights to bring my heart rate up.  For me it is like walking and chewing gum (almost imposible) or patting my head while rubbing my tummy.  LOL  I try to vary my exercise routine periodically to keep interested. 

Hope you all have a really good compliant day.  Ruth

PS spell check doesn't work for me either.  R

Hello everyone...

YEAH!!!!!!!    Finally made it on to the new board.   I was getting worried that I would have to rejoin, but was able to confirm my email and then got right on the site.  It is great to read all the messages from yesterday and today so far.  We will all have to adjust to this new way of doing things, but such is life.  I am so glad we made it back on the board before our Monday Weigh In.   We will have a new start on a new board and a new dedication to the task at hand.  SHEDDING POUNDS THE WLC WAY!!!  So glad to see Eilene back.  So you ate and gained a little, Eilene.  Join the crowd; the summer has slowed a lot of us up on losing.  We need everyone back posting and starting again to review the Keys as Dr. Phil presents them for us.   WE WILL DO THIS...........hugs to all, Carolyn

Thanks MS Moderator

Thanks for your response.  I have cable and still haven't gotten the spell check to "come alive" although I left it up for about five minutes.  I'll try later and just let it sit "on" for 30 minutes and see what happens.  

 

Very glad they might make the size of the letters larger in the creation of our masterpieces. Tiny print is a real bummer.

 

Still playing around with the new system and hopefully we will all have the wrinkles worked out before long.  Ks Grandma

This is just a test as I have had difficulty re-registering. Just checking to see if this will work. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

See - I told you - you would be the first (or one of the first) to figure out how to insert a picture in the actual message.  You're way ahead of me - that's for sure.  I'm still trying to Insert/Edit Image and can't get anything to cooperate.  I even tried the Right click and copy and tried to insert that way, but it won't "go there" for me.  You wouldn't believe just where I have been in this computer trying to get something to work - anything.   lol

 

Okay - relax, breathe, this is not "that" important.  My problem is that I used to be a Word Processing Specialist, and could figure out Word Perfect to the MAX - did all sorts of stuff.  And now, feel like my brain isn't working any more.  Even took courses from local college when I first started Word Perfect, and didn't even know what program others were using, (Lotus 123, etc.) and could help them get to where they wanted to be, when they would be lost in a program and they thought I knew that program.  So this is frustrating to me. 

 

And then some of the things that I tried, didn't work, but then what I was trying to do happened without my input.  Now that's scary.  Oh well, aren't we having fun, and happy to see each other!!!  That's the important thing.
