Default 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.

Yep, chat room doesn't run on iPad.

But it's not visited very often anyway.

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.

Default 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.
