the last attempt resulted in ie locking up kicking me off.
then i could not get to mls ON ANY COMPUTER for about 10 minutes. (web site not found error) When MLS did finally come back up, I was loged off.

All I had done was tped some info, no formating. I covered three topics, 



it looked sort of like this.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
having the following problems:
CHAT
 chat is loosin the top line where the settings are.

POSTING
 I have not cuceeded in posting anything lately

FTP
I can no longer get to my web space

FORMATTING
formatting seeme to have changed

VIDEO
While I had no problem imbeding video a few months ago, it no nonger works

Spell checker button installes the IESPELL fine but it still does nopt work on mls, and clicking the little ABCcheck button says iespell is not installed and installes it again. ie spell works fine on the yahoo and bachmann forums.  (VERY FRUSTRATING as I have used ie spell for years.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OK, so I thought I'd format the text a little to make it look better.

I highlighted the word "CHAT" on the second line and pressed down arrow on the dropdown box labled "Format", from the dropdown list I selected "Heading 1" 
I'll do t hat again . "NOW"
WOW That wasn't what I wanted at all. So I changed it back, Everthing went small again
I double clicked on the "CHAT" heading and tried again.still everthing went big I decided to preview to see if it really was making all the text big. that is when it locked up. .
Now, I'm going to submit this and try to edit it later.

well gosh,
what got posted is nothing like what I was seeing on the screen
when I hit heading 1 in the format combo box all the text was dark black, a different font, and MUCH MUCH LARGER.

OK, next I'.. try previewing this text

Nope, says it is not installed, I installed it yet again

ok, rebooted. and mls was down and could not get back into it.


went to two other computers, one could not open mls
the other had mls home pages displayed so i just hit refresh and got the page not found error


after wseveral tries, after a ew minutes, mls came back up by hittinf refresh. then it came up instantly on the other two computers.


( Guess you can tell spell check still don't work


OK, ON TO POSTING PICTURES
 I RESIZED pictures to 640 by 480 , they still don't attach


tried 639 by 479
no good there either.


OH WELL, I Like embeding them from my MLS SPACE ANYWAY


MLS WEB SPACE


I have four desktops here in tallahassee (Win 3.11, win 98, XP and a NT SERVER.
I have and another two in alabama VISTA and XP
I also have three sony laptops. win 95, win 98 and VISTA, (Im using the vista laptop now)


WHEN POSTING  in alabama I'm usually using a new machine every week or so. I do not load office, or  any utilities like FTP on any of my computers, except two of my desktops. one in fla and one in alabama
I had 100 mb of storage on MLS that I accessed verynicely via internet explorer, I could do it very eaisly
all I had to do was create a shortcut on my windows IE LINKS line to MLS. I do that just by draging the address onto the links bar.
then, I edit the link so it reads as follows:
[url="ftp://bobgrosh%40gold.mylargescale.com/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/[email protected]/[/url]
including the ""%40" and "@" exactly as shown, but I use my password in place of "PASSWORD"
After editing the link I change one setting in IE options to allow FTP (check the box)
Now to edit, rename, deletate aor add files or entire directories all I had to do was open IE cand click on the ftp link. I could not only rename or deleate entire directories all their sub directories and file, but I could drab and drop files or entire directories to or from my local machine.

I've been doing it like that for years, not only to my bobgrodh space but also to my deadhaead space when it was seperate from the bobgrosh space. 
IT MUST HAVE WORKED QUITE WELL AS I FILLED UB BOTH MY FIRST CLASS SPACES.

NOW  last week FTP quit working. 

IT Will just not let me log into my ftp spACE
Not on THIS MACHINE , 
Not on My 98 lpatop, or my three desktops. I even dug out a machine in the garage that had not been used in a year, clicked the  FTP link, no good

I also find it handy on some machines to map a drive letter (M:) to the ftp site. That no longer works either.

Now, now Vic (with a "wink and a nod"),WE are the ones who apparently don't know what the heck we are doing. But I will say that I have had problems all day today with either not being able to get on the forum or when I try to preview, it won't show it. Then it times out! Then I try to get on again and it takes ions to find the site and says "page not found". Every other site I go to works great. And I mean every other site! According to some of the computer wizzes here, there are quite a few of us with "faulty" computers. I just don't get it.

Just so's ya know... MLS was unobtainable for me several times Sunday evening also. When I can't get to it after a reboot, I assume it is not ME that time and let it go for a while. Sometimes it is a server betwixt me and some other site and sometimes it IS the wanted site itself... as I think it was Sunday evening.

I keep trying to tell you folk, it ain't necessarily YOU that is the problem, but since others are not having problems, maybe we should start blaming them for not being able to have the problems too. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif

HEY!!! THIS REPLY BOX DON'T LOOK RIGHT! WHAT HAPPENED????

I bet Shad has been a "FIDDLIN'" around with things... MAYBE????

This reply text box is different too. The icons across the top for text attributes and inserting a picture are gone. The font is different too. Looks like Courier instead of the usual Arial or Roman. No button for Source either.

Hmmmm.....

You're right! It has changed. This is just a test to see if we are alert and listening. Where is TOC when you need him?

POP quiz tomorrow.:D

Due to the overabundance of whining, bellyaching, griping, nit-picking, nagging of posting problems by a very vocal minority of members, I have disabled the rich text editor until further notice. You're stuck with a basic text box for posting until I have time to get a new editor in place and fully tested.

ok, so preview shows everthing on one line. even though each word was on a seperate line. but then posting it shows it prety much as i entered it.

Then the problems start.

I need to edit that last post.
I press the edit button on the top of the last post
it brings up the post with all sorts of forum code, img tags, italic tags etc.
if i hit preview or submit it takes dow the www.mylargescale.com site.
the gold.mylargescale site stays up and i can get to other sites, but not the www.mylargescale.com url

I also tried it while looking at www.mylargescale.com on another computer. when i hit submit on this computer, i cant get to any topic on the other computer for two ot three minutes. the other computer just sits there on the same page for a while.

Looks to me that the basic editor is screwed. even without all the editing buttons.

OH, I'm running vista and IE 7 with all the current patches and updates. I also updated java and active x to the lates versions. This pc is a new sony laptop with a fresh install of widows from the factory disks with no other software installed. Not having any problems at Yahoo forums, Trains.com forums, or Bachmann forums.

How else can i help? (besides refraining from editing this post again)

Keep a stiff upper lip Shad :)
