      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Eric,

Could you please help me to correct my sons avatar photo. Brian would be very upset knowing his face is squished. He was a bit vane.

Any help you can give me to make my sons picture as handson as he really was, would be greatly appreciated.

sorry it took me a bit to get back to you but it appears to be fixed, i just changed the size on it. Let me know if you have any other questions/concerns/requests!

All you have to do in the future, any pictures you want to put in will end up being 90x90. I just changed the longest side of the picture to 90 pixels and then re uploaded it, the forum for some reason stretches and makes the pictures look odd.

Hi Eric, Hopefully you're still around...

Would you explain how to get spell check to work? I know you've explained before and I thought I knew, but apparently I don't.

Thanks,

Susannah

Hi Susannah,

Eric is still around, but I went ahead and took the liberty of copying his original post to repost to you. Maybe he can add something else to it if you are still needing more help.

Why doesn't spell check work? Upon investigation, I found that this board does not have a built in spell check. The spell check is run through your web browser. There are 2 ways you might be able to get this to work.

1 - The download page the button someone was suggested to go to is to download a plug in for their web browser to install a spell check. This way, you would have a spell check anytime you're using your browser not just on this site.

If you use Internet Explorer then I found what was a recommended spell check application that is free - http://www.iespell.com/download.php or http://download.cnet...4-10208550.html

2 - The other method, and this one isn't guaranteed to work, is to go to the upper right corner, click your name for the drop down and select "My Settings". The first tab that comes up should be Settings, with General settings selected. Look for the box that states "Enable visual (RTE) editor?" If you click the box for this, it can possibly enable a spell check for you also.

3 - supposedly firefox has a built in spell check for people who use that. I personally use Google Chrome for browsing and it apparently also has it's own built in spell checker as well

Hope this helps,

ModKonnie

Eric: is there a particular way to post pictures so that they are not so huge? I use Microsoft Digital Image pro 9 to do that, but many don't have photo programs and their pics are just huge when opened. thanks. Carol mikesmomrs

Please know that words cannot express how much I love this website and the service you provide to people in need.

I have been on this site since June of 2008. This is just a comment and my opinion only.

The website title Beyond Indigo, brought a glimmer of hope and an aspiration of actually being able to survive this loss. But the current title Grieving brings death to mind and in a constant state of sadness.

When we post to newly bereaved parents, we try to tell them that they can survive this. We can breath again.

Just my 2 cents.

Again, I would not be as far in my grief journey (which would be a great title) as I am if it was not for this site.

Thanks again

Thank you for expressing your opinion, Colleen. I will pass this along to the decision makers. It's always good to get feedback.

I changed your name and zip code to "private." As far as Facebook, do you have a facebook account already set up? Let me see what I can find out, and I will get back with you.
