Whether I am on my desktop or Tapatalk why do subjects/forums get added to my Subscription section automatically? I just want the ones I manually add. HELP! ha! Thanks.

When I refresh a given page, for a brief moment, where a person's avatar is, a paragraph appears with some sort of description on that member. Often it is a sentence repeated. The ones I have been able to read have been positive.

It's probably a comment about the person's reputation, such as "Jon has much to be proud of".

Don't see anything wrong with the quality of the thumbnails but I do hate them. Might be just me but every time I click on the "see last post" and the last post contains a YouTube preview, it takes for-fucking-ever to load the page. Then, gods forbid, that someone quotes the preview post it takes even longer to load. Like I said, maybe it is just me. I mostly use my desktop (old people, right?) and IE (even older!).

On the main Forum page, if you double click an icon you essentially Mark As Read every thread in that particular sub forum. This is a great tool to weed out stuff not relevant to you.

Click on Forums at the top of every page. As you scroll down, you will see different icons for each section. The technical section has the Help Button. Calvin's Corner has the book with King's big head on the cover. If the icon is in color, it means there are unread posts in it. If it's black and white, everything has been read.
A simple double click on the icon marks all threads as having been read.

But from "new posts" they have them. Icon- Brown box with addition sign. Pic attached. Will what you are suggesting make sure you never get that thread in your "unread posts" again (what I'm looking for) or just clear the unread? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190729/1c8359649b4de0eb82ca2851e7ceaa9e.jpg

Just curious, but how large can one single post be? As in how much text? The reason I'm asking is my first post here: http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/showthread.php?22144-The-Great-Movie-Tournament-Overall-Event-Overview The idea is to keep updating this post for each part of the tournament (hiding each finished round or part of the tournament under spoilers, so only the current stuff is at the top), but if I actually manage to do this and finish this (with all of y'all's assistance and voting, of course), would the forum support eleven tournaments worth of links?

You cant. Your password is encrypted at point of creation and even Admins cant see it. You could change your password in the settings, but to do that you must know your existing password....

The only other option is for an admin to reset your password for you to something new and you can then change it yourself to whatever you want it to be.

Tapatalk only has a very small selection of tags (or BBCodes as they are also known), unfortunately Spoiler tags are not available. You can however directly type the tags in manually. There are two types of spoiler tag, a simple one which just hides whats between the tags and one that does the same but gives it a 'title'. I would suggest the first as being the simplest to use from Tapatalk.

To use the simple option, prefix the text you want to hide by typing the tag [ SPOILER] including the square brackets and then at the end of your text add the code [ /SPOILER]

If you want your hidden text to have a title then type the tag like this: [ SPOIL="Your title goes here"] Your hidden text goes here...[ /SPOIL]

(dont put any spaces in the tags - I had to do this so you could read it)

We need a volunteer to create a new post describing how to post images and videos in a post. The one we have is outdated, and the images are missing.

Something like this?

*

There are two ways to post photos.

Either upload the photo to a web site that hosts photos and link to the photo by clicking the http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/images/editor/insertimage.png icon. Write or paste the image URL in the box an click OK.

Or you can upload to the site server in the Gallery.

To upload to the site server: Click Gallery. From the upper right of the menu on top of the new page click Upload Photos. Click the Browse button. Navigate to the photo on your hard drive and select it. Click Open. Wait for the photo to upload. When it's complete you will be taken back to your gallery.

You have three picture posting options. You can post the thumbnail, the medium sized image below the thumbnail, or you can click on the medium sized image and another window will open with a full sized image. Right click the image you want. Select Copy Image Location, then click the http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/images/editor/insertimage.png button in the thread you want and paste the image location in the box. Click OK.

*

To post a video click the http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/images/editor/video.png icon. Type or paste video URL. Delete the s from https if present. Click OK.

(I can refine it and make it more detailed if needed.)

It's a bit more comprehensive than mine. I'll post what I have to start and improve it as time allows. At some point you'll be able to archive the old post.

Can someone help me regarding how to do a "spoiler" tab?

I use Tapatalk

Thx

looking for: The Road #208, Hill House #'ed, RB Gift,
Dead Zone 1st/1st

Tapatalk only has a very small selection of tags (or BBCodes as they are also known), unfortunately Spoiler tags are not available. You can however directly type the tags in manually. There are two types of spoiler tag, a simple one which just hides whats between the tags and one that does the same but gives it a 'title'. I would suggest the first as being the simplest to use from Tapatalk.

To use the simple option, prefix the text you want to hide by typing the tag [ SPOILER] including the square brackets and then at the end of your text add the code [ /SPOILER]

If you want your hidden text to have a title then type the tag like this: [ SPOIL="Your title goes here"] Your hidden text goes here...[ /SPOIL]

(dont put any spaces in the tags - I had to do this so you could read it)Thanks for the help, Sir. Anyway to do spoiler tag with a pic on Tapatalk? Thought I would ask on here in case anyone else is wondering. Thx

[ SPOILER][ IMG]The URL of your image goes here.[ /IMG][ /SPOILER]And If I do not use URL? Can I just select pics from my phone on Tapatalk with a spoiler tag?

Dead Zone 1st/1stWith Tapatalk you can select images from your phone and just upload them without needing to upload to the sight or a server (it uses tapatalks I believe) but you can't then put them in spoilers. There is a reason I only post photos from my phone now as I find it very cumbersome to upload photos before I can use them.

And it does work with spoilers, you just need to manually add the tags.

Real questions : wouldnt it be better if links were underlined on this message boards?
This is a web standards, allowing to see what is links / clickable of what is not.

For instance, with this post : https://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/showthread.php?9564-King-appearances-interviews-podcasts...&p=1195458&viewfull=1#post1195458
If you dont pay attention, it's kind of difficult to find out there is an actual link

Very subtle, in my opinion, but it can change a bit significantly improve the ux

I agree, and I tend to try to highlight the fact that the links I put are link. But not everybody does.... making it automatically would help in my opinion.
It could also make it easier to recognise spammer accounts that put random messages, if links, when they are not really visibile (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ).

Anyway, it was just my 2 cent suggestion (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hm36xQirK8)

Anybody else not receiving email alerts? I haven't gotten any for subscribed threads or for emails in my Inbox. I was still getting them on April 23, but haven't gotten any since.

I didn't receive notifications for about a month in either folder. Then, they magically returned.

I check my junk folder daily in case stuff I want gets sent there. I must be one of the very few who does this.

Mine just magically returned too. So weird.

No, this cant be done, not even on the main site. The best option is to go to those threads and mark them all as "Read". It's not a great solution, but if there is something getting a lot of posts that you may not be interested in, its the fastest way to clear your unread list.

NB its only a temp measure as soon as new posts are made in those threads they will be back in your unread list again

It's a small thing, but is it possible to change the code for one of the smilies to something else?

Typing an "8" and then ")" shows this guy: 8)

This sort of plays havoc any time you want to actually display those characters next to each other. Like we do when we put the year in the movie tournaments. Like if something is from 2008 or 2018 or whatever. If we try to put the number in parenthesis, we get the smiley instead.

All the other ones seem to be a word surrounded by 2 colons. Like : thumbsup : :thumbsup:

Just a suggestion.
