Request to all posting members
Recently we have had more and more posts in the forum that do not include the image but links to other pages (often flickr, but not exclusively). I understand it sometimes may be easier to do that than to sort out the exact link for the image, but I would prefer it to see the image(s) IN the thread. I certainly makes it easier to discuss what it is all about without having to switch windows all the time.
So, please, try to use the [img] tags with the link to the image rather than the [url] tags to the page with the image.
Thank you.
A few changes
Members who have set their preference to 'Remember me' when logging in may not really have noticed, but those have visit without logging in must have noticed a difference since yesterday: the big center Theme Switcher panel is gone and replaced by a smaller panel in the left side column. Something else that is new: it now works for every visitor, whether they are logged in or not. An improvement, in my view.
Another novelty is the Glossary. I developed it myself, with this site in mind. The core is clear to everyone (eventually you would have noticed the link in the Navigation Panel), but it has a few tricks up its sleeve. The signs are all around, but the implementation is not visible in many places yet. I wonder who will spot it first...
