I posted on so bizarre and it's Monday threads on monday morning and neither are coming up on my 'your content' list of postings
I tend to follow up posts I have made by going to my posts so will be lost if this doesn't work

I have the same. All of today's posts show up in my content page and then there is a five month gap back to April. All the posts in between are there, they just don't show up on that page, which is bizarre.

I must be really thick or like you Izzy, tired, and should forget it tonight! It is about photos...

First, when I click on a thumbnail of someone's photo to see the larger one, I cannot see a way to return to the post. I have to close the usual way - red cross top right - and am off TP so have to start again from scratch. What am I missing?

I don't like the thumbnails. After reading Beate's post I checked my thread and was dismayed to see all my photos are, like hers, now thumbnails.

Do you have to have a photo album on TP before you can post a normal sized photo? Apart from a few there my photos are in Pictures folder on my laptop.

When I first came on late afternoon as I said on the Chat thread I tried to put a photo in a post on my thread without success. But went back and did do it and a normal sized photo appeared on my thread. Then I deleted it (meal time!).

Now from what I gather reading here this wont happen. I thought it quicker than previously.

I did this photo by clicking on More Options then Upload a File. A thumbnail appeared with the option of Thumbnail or Full lmage - so I clicked on the latter- naturally! ;) But it still came up as a thumbnail. :confused:

Now I am too tired and perhaps I need to re-read with more care what has been written about photos.

Loo, the ' full image ' not working is a glitch which is known to admin and they will fix it eventually.
If you want an alternative way of inserting an image - though not full sized it is larger, then
use the 4th icon along to the right from the smilie face above and it will insert a photo and via the 'information tag' a link to your other photos in any one album
To create an album. Go to Media on top - add media and create an album then add your photos to it.
Make sure you make the album 'Members only' as if 'Owner only' they won't be able to be seen by other even within a post.
Hope this helps.

I'll be glad to get my desk top back today. I'm struggling with my iPad and wonder if it's just me.

I've reduced the brightness/glare but don't seem able to increase the size of the font permanently. At the moment I'm using a magnifier.

I'm just thinking of others who have difficulty sight wise.

Is it the desktop that you want to increase the font size on?

EDIT

Just read your post again, it's the iPad as you have not got your desktop back yet

Yes nitram . I'm struggling with the iPad.

I'll not panic yet. I'll wait till my desktops back and then I'll be able to sort it hopefully. I've just enlarged the font to 5 but it remains to be seen if it helps

As a work around until the full screen bug is fixed you can simple copy a displayed image and paste into the text box, this



was copied from a image in my album and then pasted in the text.

Can you do white on black on the iPad?
This sometimes helps.

Nice to see you've found your bell Nitram. It appears to have aged and so is somewhat faded though!

Not sure if you got an answer or sorted it out yourself, here's how


You can click to enlarge.

I got a full size image by uploading it to http://postimages.org/ (free no need to join) to get a URL

Only the cognoscenti will know about the vanishing Hyacinthoides non-scripta

I'm quite used to being called nitrate and nitrite, am I going to add itr to the list?

Is this any easier for me to add photos as I'd given up trying to do it from my iPad!
Oh it is so much easier, I see the glitch about displaying full size for now.
