  • Help the technologically disadvantaged

    I joined the casebook today so this is my first post and it's a question. I really am utterly clueless with technology so, patience please. I tried to jump on the chat room but when I clicked it came up saying something like 'this plug-in is not supported.' Could someone explain this to me please, preferably in words that a Victorian chimney-sweep would understand? I have an IPadPro, which is wasted on me, does this mean I will not be able to access the chat room? Thanks everyone.
    Regards

    Herlock

    Yep, chat room doesn't run on iPad.

    But it's not visited very often anyway.

    There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

        Welcome, Herlock.

        You may not be able to access the (seldom visited) chatroom but you should now be able to use the IM facility as I believe the threshold is 25 posts.

          Thanks for the reply Bridewell. Unfortunately I really am useless with technology as I said. How does IM work? What do I do?

            IM is instant message, so let's say you want to message Bridewell click his name above one of his posts, one option will be send message, top right of any screen you see your screen name and below that "private messages" I'll send you one as a test.

              Pretty much every time I make a post I have to log back in before I put it up. Is there any way of increasing the time allowance for making a post?

              Thanks

                Have you ticked the "remember me" box on the login screen? That'll keep you logged in forever, as far as I can tell.

                Mind you I'm a speed typist, so I haven't encountered this issue myself. Perhaps there is a timeout on postings of which I've never been aware.

                  I’ll try that Gareth, thanks

                    Attaching a photo

                    Sorry if this has been covered a hundred times but, here goes, i can't see the paperclip to allow attachments, I'm sure I've done it before but, I can't see it to attach photos.

                    Please help.

                      I don't think the board software uses a paperclip. If you want to attach a photo from your own pc or tablet, click either "reply" or "quote". You should see a dialogue box below your reply that says "additional options". One of these will be "attach files". That's what you want. It should be there by default if you're starting a new thread. If you use "quick reply" instead of "reply", you may have to choose "advanced options" to see the menu.

                      If you want to include a picture from the internet (as opposed to locally stored), then click on the icon above the text field that shows a red sun over a green mountain. That allows you to enter the web address (URL) of the picture.

                      Hope this helps.

                        Hit post reply.

                        Paper clip is on top line.

                        Though I use the icon below it looks a bit like a stamp, next to the quote box thing.

                              G U T , i saw the stamp thing and it asks for a url - you got me!
                              There is no paperclip on the top line, I'm sure there used to be as I'm also sure I have attached photos before.

                              Confused.
