A memento from the BBC WW2 Site (when we were still known as 'Researchers' !)


This is a test posting (Tom might like to keep this a souveneer!)

Well done, Ron. The more tests and trials we do the better.

By the way, I noticed last night that the edit pencil icon had vanished again, this time from all comments and I couldn't even edit my own.

At first I thought I might have overdone tinkering with the code. To test this I started another blog, but there were no edit icons there either.

Hope this is fixed soon. Can you edit your posts and comments here and on your family blog?

Thank you Ron for that plug of the front page - I shall try to keep this but - as you know my expertise in these matters is minimal
Cheers

I see the Edit icon on the Posts but not on the Comments. Do you see the icon on this page?

Just discovered this in the Comments FAQ:

Can I edit or delete individual comments?

While comments aren't editable, they can be deleted.

So there we are.

At first sight this does seem to be a shortcoming. But on reflection it is probably intentional. It stops people altering what they have said in an argument, after a Commment has been commented on.

You can just right click on any image to save it to your PC, or click on the 'floppy' icon if one appears.

So to recap, here are the powers I have on this blog:

I can alter the Template of the blog.
I can edit any post.
I can remove any post.
I can remove any comment.
I cannot edit any comment, including my own comments.

Whilst posting the 'Front Page' item, I inadvertently posted it twice, probably as a result of being impatient whilst 'saving' the posting. The result was that I now had two images on the screen.
I realised what I'd done, went into the edit mode and simply removed the duplicate paragraph of code. To my smug astonishment it put matters right before you had the chance to point out my stupidity !

I might even get to enjoy blogging :)

Peter -
followed your advice re clicking RH to save a picture - tried it on Frank's "None shall pass ' Pic - and it worked - I now have that stalwart Briton in my pics folder for all time as a memento
as how the Brits were magnanimous in victory - as one Winston S Churchill - Ron's boss - had suggested !

Thanks Tom you only wanted an image of a real soldier.
There was some method in our being there. The Germans got a better beer ration than us and we helped them sink it amid tuneful renderings of Lily Marlene, Keep the home fires burning, Horst Wessel and My Belle Amey.
At the end of a convivial session we were all ready to join hands and march against authority in any form.
Frank.
