Lightbulb What's this test board for?

Getting used to the plethora of options available to you on the new DPNow forum is quite a job. You can edit your posts, use a rich set of message formatting tools, rate threads, create polls, attach and insert images and much more.

We thought that it was only fair to provide a special testing board where you can try things out before committing the final version to one of the feature boards. The DPNow forum moderators are also always available to offer some help and suggestions if required.

So create new threads and posts here to test out your DPNow forum skills without risking experiments on live posts destined for one of the main forum boards.

Periodically, we'll delete the oldest test posts so don't leave anything for more than a week if you need to keep it.

Ian

Re: What's this test board for?

Hi Ian
This is a good idea, especially if one sometimes are a bit handicapped web-wise.
Here is a pic I posted in the transport.

My questions :
Where can I comment on pictures say, in transport, IF I do not want to use the critique forumn?
Sometimes I would like to leave a comment on any picture I see, not necessarily a critique, how do I do it.
I understanf the concept of cut and past using the URL to the dsktop, a very neat thing, but this means I have to open and close more windows. It there was a link to ones gallery, in the forums, or the same slider window below the URL window to take one to the choosen forum page, it will be nice. If I am on the User Cp page, I can click on the scroll window in the bottom right, and go to where I want to, the same will work nice, if possible, in ones galley.
Regards
Callie

Hi Callie - got your message; a very good point. I will provide a more obvious place in the forum for posting pictures that the poster doesn't particularly want fine critique on. Give me a little time to think it through

Did you get the message ? Callie also said 'Sometimes I would like to leave a comment on any picture I see'

Yet another person who feels the way I do, which I stated in a previous post and which was rejected.

Re: What's this test board for?

I wanted to leave a comment yesterday, on Callie's entry for the last forum. A good one of course.

Re: What's this test board for?

Try posting in the critique forum where you're more likely to get good help, advice and critique.
