Slightly and significant changes



#4

Hello, Dave;

your recent changes made easy to recover from errors. And I use them much... :)

- Delete dialog box right after text instead of after the response box and
- Edit after post feature, with an important warning that must be read

I think many others have noticed, but I thought you should know it happened.

Thank you helping us to participate.

You're welcome Luiz. These changes are in place in all the forums now.

I've also added some new formatting codes which are documented here. Perhaps the most interesting is the [quote] code. I don't expect to see it used very frequently because the threaded nature of this forum usually makes responses obvious, but sometimes someone will post a long message and you'll just want to respond to one (or more) small bit(s). In that case, you can cut and paste the bit(s) into your response surround by [quote] and [/quote] tags like this:

Quote:
If the automobile had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year, killing everyone inside.

That was from Robert X. Cringely of InfoWorld magazine, but usually you'll use it to quote someone here.

Thanks Dave! These are all great and much appreciated enhancements.

I recently found a very nice spelling program for Internet Explorer, that when combined with your editing features makes posting here a pleasure. For those of you who don't know about this http://www.iespell.com/download.php I highly recommend trying it out.
