Jeremy,Chris,or anyone who can help this novice computer user,

Is there a simple way to retrieve a topic by category,name,place,person,or thing without going into the archives one by one and digging?

I know several of you experts do this when similar topics come back up and link it to the current question/topic for added input on the subject very quickly.

Sorry for my illiteracy but I admit my weakness in this area,now if I could get some pix going and a avatar among other technological dificiencies I'd be a happy Nelsap camper!

Thanks ahead of time

Once you get your instructions, is it possible to put them somewhere where they are easily attainable?

CONFESSIONS OF A DIM WIT: I always forget how to use the various functions, and I am too embarrassed to ask AGAIN!!! Could we have a sticky spot for directions? Or, is there one already? By the way...what are these "List Open, List Item, List Close" keys all about on this page??? I don't know what a BBcode is ...or even a URL. I have created links, but it's a hit or miss thing with me...I hit those keys, and see if anything comes up.

I think the answer to the first question is use the search over in the left Navigation bar. It's the 8th item down. The more exact your search terms the better chance you have of a hit.

For the second question, BBCode is is a simplier form of HTML (the language of the web). I keep this handy-dandy reference in my bookmarks /favorites when I want to do funky things (see my profile).

BB Code Reference

I believe Chris has most the bbcode options turned on

Thank you Shenty... yes, I highly recommend the search tool. It's rather useful

You can search posts by topic or by author name.

Thanks Tim,helps tremendously for us novices,now,after finding a topic or post how do I throw that back in and underline it so it is on the current post for all to bring back up and see?

Sorry to be so naive but I was always told the "dumbest" question is the one you never asked.I'm sure I'll have more.

Gaining some ground too MissDaEast?

If I only had 40 +yrs of computer experience along with my yrs skiing!

The "underline" you see is a LINK, or "URL" ... to create one in a post, simply use the "URL" button which appears above the writing area when drafting your post.

It'll look like this: Snow Journal Link (test)

I suggest when you have link you want to copy, you select-edit (in the top toolbar)-copy the url, then paste it into your post. Then click the URL button, and there's no way around completely retyping the whole address, since there's no "paste" button in the URL window.

Those Terraserver URLs are really long and I hope you appreciate my effort in typing them!

That's what my Latin teacher used to day to, then he'd throw an eraser at me...

Always happy to be of service!

When the URL window is up, press Ctrl-v, that will paste the text in your clipboard into the window.

But you have to delete the http
All these years, the secrets of the Control key have eluded me.

I could even type bracket-url-bracket , paste http://www.snowjournal.com/page.php?cid=gallery5495 and bracket-slash-url-bracket, as suggested in the BBCode link.

Good tip ... basic windows copy/paste functions ... CTRL-c will copy just about anything, CTRL-v will paste into just about anything. It's universal.

I think Mac works the same way just with the "Apple" key instead of "Control." Hence Apple+C is Copy and Apple+V is Paste.

And CTRL-x after highlighting a selection will cut it.

If you experts are still learning new tricks just think what us novices have in store for us when we see the light!
