Thanks, FiveK. Although most of terminology used in that post is way over my head, I got the gist of it: that is tables don't work in our current software. Back to the text and tabs now. Thanks again.

  • Click "List" again to end the list
For an ordered list:
  1. Do the same as above, except click "List="
  2. Put a "1" after the =
  3. You still use a * in [] for each item
  4. the software knows to increment each item
Doing the same as above except with an "a" instead of a "1" will give:

Tip: Open that link in a new window to avoid overwriting your new post. Or, just hit the browser's back button to get back to the post you were editing.

Test of draft cellphone email

Post by dratkinson »

This is interim step until I can upgrade home PC/internet.

Question. Can I use my desktop keyboard and screen, to create a long draft email (here), that I then edit and send on my new cellphone?

Why?
--New cellphone works with newer internet security protocols, but keyboard is a pain to use.
--Old home PC no longer works with newer internet security protocols, but keyboard and screen are much easier to use.

Meaning: I can no longer access Gmail from desktop, but a long email would be a pain to create on cellphone.



Answer. Seems to work.

- Desktop users can scroll with the scroll bars.
- Mobile users just scroll within the quote.

Great!

Now if only posters would learn to quote only the snippets they're directly responding to rather than reproduce a lengthy, scrollable nesting of the entire discussion. That would not only be easier to follow, it would also obviate the need for scrolling in the first place. [But yeah, easier said than done.]

I'm wondering if your browser is protecting you. Your image is going to an insecure site (http:// vs https://).

My browser is blocking the https:// version with a security warning.

Wiki To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.

I do, but I think I'll put in a ticket with Dreamhost and see what shakes loose there.

edit: updated the cert on the site.

So does this board or current versions of Chrome automatically rewrite http urls to https now?

It's a Chrome setting, but I can't recall how I disabled that on Chrome when it was causing an issue with an old server.

Insecure content is blocked by default on secure sites under 'privacy and security' -> 'site settings' -> 'insecure content'.

There is no on/off, just white and black lists. So trying to image link from standard HTTP on this site looks like it's going to break for Chrome users.

Might want to add a phpbb mod that automatically rewrites http to https so at least the problem is more evident by throwing a certificate error if the link is attempted to access directly.
