Dear all,

Since this is the first full day with the new forum, below are some short instructions on what is new, and "wher can I find x" -type questions. If you have more questions, please respond to this thread at the bottom.

Q1: How do I start a new topic?
Once in a forum, for example the Camino Frances forum:
http://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/forums/camino-frances.12/
...just over the list of current topics (on the right hand side), click "Post new Thread":
Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 10.04.41 AM.png
...and write your message.

Q2: How do I reply to a post?
To do a simple reply, just scroll to the bottom of the thread (as seen below) and start writing. No need to click anything.

Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 10.07.06 AM.png
...if you would like to reply with a "Quote".... find the post that you would like to reply to (quote) and click the word "Reply" that appears to the bottom right of that post.
Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 10.09.10 AM.png


Q3: Where are the Private Messages? (PMs)
Private Messages are now Conversations, you can can find them in your "Inbox" (link top right).
Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 10.00.19 AM.png
To write a message (start a conversation) with someone, you can go to your inbox and click the "Start Conversation" button. Type in the name of the user you would like to contact, and then write your message.

Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 10.01.28 AM.png
..or you can click on a users username, and from the pop-up window click "Start conversation":
Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 10.03.12 AM.png

Q4: How do I edit my profile?
Hover your mouse over your username (top right) and you will see a pop-up with a lot of options for editing anything related to your account.

Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 10.10.57 AM.png

Q5: What are trophies?
This is a way to give recognition to the posters in the forum that posts useful and helpful information. Before we had something similar based on the number of posts each user had posted. We had "Veteran poster" and so on. Trophies is something similar, and it is set based on the number of posts you have made (as before), but also the number of likes your posts have attracted.

Q6: I see these notification(s) at the top, can I remove them?
Yes. Each notification has an "X" in the top right corner.. click it when you have received the message and would not like to see it again.

Congratulations Ivar! The new forum looks fabulous. It's been a couple of years since I last walked the Camino but the forum always brings back such great memories. Thank you for such hard work, yours is a great contribution to the Camino.

Hola Ivar. Looking under browsing preferences can I take the tick out of 'use the flash based uploader' and still upload files or is it essential to leave the tick in the box please?
Enjoying looking around the updated site.

Try it and see if it works for you... I think it depends on your browser and what you have installed on your computer.
I will Ivar, and I'll post if it works or not. Maybe have to be tomorrow......
I don't want to 'mess' with my settings too quickly, one thing at a time to see what happens. :)
I am wondering:-
What the 'status' entry does?
Also if turning some settings to 'followers' rather than 'members' will stop conversations starting, or is it just entries on the profile page? Can entries I don't like be deleted by me, or not?

Really appreciating all your hard work.

Hi, Ivar!

I have one more question. Is the new software able to downsize (resize) uploaded photos automatically or we still have to do that ourselves. Until now I've usually downsized them from 3072x2048 to 500x333 to be viewed fully (without scrolling) in my posts. As mentioned I'm kind of IT idiot and just wondering what to do next time... Because the new layout is much wider and today in one of the threads (new Camino house in Santiago or something like that) I saw much larger photo?

Thanks in advance!

When I post a reply by pasting text from a Word doc, the formatting often gets messed up (eg no paragraph breaks). In the old website there was a Preview function so I could fix formatting errors before Submitting my reply. Where is the Preview function on the new website?

There is also a problem uploading photos. For example, in a recent post I wanted thumbnails to appear at the bottom of my text, but when the reply went live, the thumbnails were right at the top of the reply.

Hi there,

I would have to try it, but I think it does... by default, when you attach a photo now, it shows up as a small thumbnail at the bottom of your posts. When you click it, it pops-up and get large. You can choose to also insert as "Full image", by clicking "Full image". It will then insert the image when your cursor is located at that moment.. (this is why the image got inserted at the top for @BobM I think).

Does this make sense?

Thanks!
Ivar

Ivar, thanks but I too was referring to the standard tapatalk application not the forum one. Thanks.
Ahh... the Android version should be working now (you need to download the update), the iPhone/iPad version is currently being looked at by Apple (they need to approve it). Once done, the update will be available for download in the Apple App Store.

Thumbnails get re-sized automatically, but the full image may not be resized. I will do an experiment with my upload tomorrow. I thought I had the cursor at the bottom of the text to position my pics, but maybe not. I will experiment tomorrow.

I'm now testing to post two iPhone pics (I posted it to myself in a smaller format first).
(Perhaps we should have a test thread, but I'm borrowing thing one for a moment, hope it's ok)
As you can see (or is it just me?) the first one gets tilted in the forum. The other one is right.
It seems like all (iphone) pics in that format behaves like that.
But anyway. I took the second pic and rotated it, then saved it upside down. Then I rotated it back again and saved it.
So now it looks ok so far.
Ok, now I'm trying to post it.

Edit. Ok I think it's just the thumbnail photo which looks tilted. That's funny.

Thank you Ivar.
Ok now it's the big test. I'm trying to post an iPhone pic as it is. And it said sorry Susanna it's too big. Of course as its 2,2 mb.
Ok now I have sent it to myself in the next biggest format and try to post it now...
Am hoping it will look less pixelated. The thumbnail is tilted though.
It would be fun to be able to post right-now Iphone pics on the forum while out on the camino.:)
Ok here it goes...
Huh? Where is the pic? Ok I'm trying again.

The file size is 534.7kb so I guess the website is happy with that size and not 2.2mb. Apart from being tilted, the fullsize image displays just fine on my computer screen resolution/size. My guess is that images are not resized automatically, if they are too big they just get rejected.

BTW, there is an advantage of resizing in that you use less of your phone data allowance. A big pic eats up 2MB, a 450 x 350 pixel pic eats only 150KB (approx). For web use on forums like this the smaller size is usually good enough.

Yes, it is tilted... but I think this is an iPhone problem... by the way, if you edit your posts and click the "Full image" button next to the image, it will get inserted in the post... full size.
Thank you, ok it's looks normal on my iPad.
I've now clicked the "full image" button and its now inserted in the post.
It looks great on my iPad but guess the rest of you have a tilted pic on your screen.
Sorry.;)

No, that's no the 2,2 mb version. I couldn't post it at all.
The pic in the post is a smaller one.

Test upload of 3mb pic.

...time passes...

Failed. Too large.

Try 1.3mb pic

...time passes...

Failed. Too large.

OK, found an answer. The little upload box with browse of the RHS says "1MB max"

So, no auto resizing is done. You have to check that your file size is less than 1mb.

I just did a quick check and found that if the max photosize is 2500 x 1875 pixels it will be just under the 1MB upload limit. That's at maximum quality. Not sure if iPhones allow you to choose quality as well as size.

But an image of 2500 x 1875 pixels is probably too big anyway for it to display nicely on a website with text also on the page.

My suggestion is to go for the smallest size option on the phone for uploads. The smallest size on my Galaxy S3 is 640 x 480 piixels and that is a nice web size. Unless you want to show really big closeups of the blisters on your feet :eek:

That looks like a Spanish vegetarian dish. Vegetables › 50%
With the exception of the things to the left. I'm sure there was 1/2 kg chickpeas and I ate all of them, I promise.;)

iPhone doesn't tell the pixel-size of pics, only mb.
I got the photoshop app but it doesn't make the pics smaller. Or does it?
So the easiest & quickest way (I think) is to email the photo to yourself, and when sending it the phone ask you what size? You chose either small, medium or big. They all work on the forum except the original size.
And pics taken as a rectangular laying down (sorry don't know the right words in English) works at once, but as a rectangular standing up, they will appear tilted.
It was fun trying to sort out this. :)

Ivar,
As I read through this thread I started getting worried that you will get a crick in your neck, sitting at the computer leaning on your hand in the same position for so long. Go back to page two and scroll down quickly and you'll see what I mean. Time you took a break!

The file size would cause some concern Ivar. We are on limited bandwidth and too many large photo files will cause a problem to us and maybe others if posted within the message. If there isn't a limit (500k max) then thumbnails only and choose to view would work better for us. The 1mg mentioned above is IMO too big.

Susanna, your photo is too big now to fit my computer screen!

But the photo isn't more than 500 k something?
These are still very small pics. My iPhone 4 is perhaps three years old and the pics are fairly small, the new versions take pictures which are much bigger.
I'm sure this will be sorted out when the app is working again.:)
Edit: sorry I meant to say k, not mb. Laughing.

When you click on inbox or the big Private Messages (Now called Conversations) in the top centre of the page on the next screen at the right at the top on my screen is a blue box "Start a conversation" it is at the same level on the page that

Hola Susanna. When I am not logged in your photo is small and looks good. As soon as I log in it shows as a 520k picture which is over 1000px x over 700px even scaled down. (Info from web browsers image info box). There is a tick to block images from the whole forum. I might have to do that :(

BobM's picture size looks about right as absolute max and smaller sizes look OK too. This looks like it might need Ivar to do a tweak in the background running. Help please Ivar, I don't really want to lose the images as I am not sure if I could then find how to get them back.

William, I have the same problem. The box/link 'Start a Conversation' in your answer is not showing on my screen - and I am logged in.

When you go to your profile and click on Privacy do you see on the left three boxes a pink one header "Conversations" and two blue ones "View Conversations"and "Start a New conversation" ?

Is the "People who may start conversations with you" ticked on the Privacy page?

Hola
Or maybe you should ask Father Christmas for an iPad.;)
(Just joking )
Ok I started my old mini laptop here which is an Asus Eee pc, and the screen is smaller than the iPad.
I had forgotten how slow it was.
There the pic (of the tree) fits nicely into the forum page but its too long for the screen so I have to scroll to see all of it.
The pic with the chickpeas is ok.
Is it the same for you?

Sorry, but it's not there. Ivar, that box you show over to the right is not showing when I click inbox. The light blue box (ending with the little arrow pointing upwards) extends across the entire page.

When you go to your profile and click on Privacy do you see on the left three boxes a pink one header "Conversations" and two blue ones "View Conversations"and "Start a New conversation" ?

Is the "People who may start conversations with you" ticked on the Privacy page?
Yes, the box you mention is "ticked". I have received PMs in the new forum but just can't figure out how to send them! Thanks

Sorry, but it's not there. Ivar, that box you show over to the right is not showing when I click inbox. The light blue box (ending with the little arrow pointing upwards) extends across the entire page.



Yes, the box you mention is "ticked". I have received PMs in the new forum but just can't figure out how to send them! Thanks
have a look again now.. can you see the button now?

I know it was asked above, but will ask again. Is it not possible when in the forum for f.ex the frances to look at the topics and see which ones one has contributed without going other places. I liked that feature with the old forum, nice and easy...

Thanks Ivar. I can see the 'start conversation' now.

I have had to turn off images as I cannot cope with the huge ones - either pxs or file - kb - size (see earlier post). So far I can still see avatars and I think the thumbnails. Off to check that out.

Susanna - My 15"" laptop (old) shows your big photos like you describe for the Asus EEE, I need to scroll. Also each time I reload this page I am using part of my monthly 5Gb bandwidth allowance, which I share with the household!.

The threads you have contributed to in a forum will have a little patch with your avatar on top of the original poster's avatar. Is this what you meant?

...also look for the icon that look like a pair of "Glasses".. these are threads where you have been contributing:

Did you download the update?
Hi again, I took off the old app and downloaded the new app ok. But I still can't get it to come through in tapatalk. I see the app listed on the tapatalk network list, but when I try to get the camino forum, I get the message "Failed to connect to forum, please check with forum administrator if this problem persists"
Any help from anyone would be much appreciated to get this camino forum app within tapatalk. Otherwise I will just use it in the other app area of my samsung galaxy s iii. It came in beautifully before the update and not being too good at using this new stuff.... left floundering. Thanks.

Hi, Ivar, I'm assuming you want us to keep posting questions on this thread even though it may get kind of confusing for you. So here's my latest question. I never figured out on the old forum how to quote some specific language from a post and put it into my post to make clear what I was responding to. And I can't figure it out in this forum either -- can you or someone help with that? Thanks, Laurie

If you press the reply button to the right of the post you are replying to the whole post you are replying to is quoted.

You can cut and paste individual parts if you like as long as you put the [ quote .] [/quote.] brackets (ignore the dots which are there so you can see it), which you can insert using the inverted commas '' on the formatting line, around what you are trying to quote.

I know, since the app available in the App Store (the one you just re- downloaded) is the same that you already have installed. Once Apple has approved my new and updated version it will be available in the App Sorter (it is not available yet). Once this happen, you will get a notice from them on the phone/ipad that an update is available. Should take another 2-3 days if all goes well (but it depends on Apple, not me).

Ok, this is a test -- fingers crossed! Thanks, Laurie
 
When you pressed the reply button to the right of the post next to the like button did this appear? (without the @)

[@quote="peregrina2000, post: 149197, member: 537"]Nope, the same thing happened as on the old forum. How do I get that beige colored background to set the quote off from the rest of the post? Sorry to be dense. Laurie[/quote]
