Deleting your own posts

There are two setting that interact here.

Members have permission to delete their own messages.
Members do not have permission to remove their own topic - this is so that you can't remove a whole discussion including other peoples messages.

Result is you can remove your own messages with the exception of the first in a topic.   You can still delete the content of the first message.

If you think a topic like this needs to be removed then the simplest way is to use the "report to moderator" link and ask for it to be removed.

You can also lock your own topic if you feel it is of no further use

Adding a link within a message
first enter some text that you want to make into a link:

eg Other squeezeboxes , or whatever

then highlight the text and click on the link icon third from the left above the emoticons, this will put tags round your link thus
Code: [Select]
[url]Other squeezeboxes [/url]
then type in an "=" sign as shown:
Code: [Select]
[url=]Other squeezeboxes [/url]
then paste in your url after the "="
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.concertina.net/]Other squeezeboxes [/url]
which will display as:

Other squeezeboxes

Avatars

Stage 1 - Create the avatar:
Maximum file size is 90 x 90 pixels. 
File type jpg or png
Using an image editor crop your picture to remove excess background, then use save or export function to reduce to 90 x 90 pixels or less.

Stage 2 upload the file to your profile:

Click on Profile in the banner area
Select Forum Profile from the LHS menu

Go to Personalize Picture, select Upload an Avatar, then click Choose File and select your avatar's location on you computer

FAQ's: Reducing image size in Mac

    I tried three times to post this yesterday without success, so I have attached only three photos. If you would like some more please let me know and I will try to post them. If anybody can tell me how to make them smaller on a Mac that would be great


Just use iPhoto or Photos.   Use the editing tools to crop the image if necessary, then use File>export click the little down arrow to reveal all the options select size>custom then enter the pixel width you want.   I usually select JPG, quality>medium size>800 and that gets the files size well below the melnet limit.
