Please to bear with us.

The Internet Overlords have not been kind to Thundersquee! this week.  Please bear with us for the next few days.  Several of us are in transit to New Orleans for the Kitchen Bitch and NFL Guy’s wedding (I’m currently blogging from LAX), and our fearless web Dominatrix the Pink is without interwebz to dominate.

Al Gore, you’re on my list–and not the good one, either.

I heard a rumor that there will be wireless on my flight. If that’s true, Al, I might be lenient.

Adding Photos to Comments

geek-glassesTo add a comment to a post you have to use a little html, specifically, the image tag.


It should look like this:


<img src=”http://www.theurlofyourphoto/myimage.jpg&#8221; />


The photos must not be more than 480 pixels wide or they will bleed over into the right hand column where all the category links are. The easiest way to accomplish this is to use an image hosting service like Photobucket.com to host the image (you’ll need to create an account). If the image is somewhere on the intarwebs, save it to your computer then upload it to photobucket.  With photobucket you can upload an image and edit it, then save it.  Once you do that, when you go back to your “album” and mouseover your images, it will give you several “link options.” Copy the text from the box that is labeled “HTML Code” then paste it into your comment.

The code will look different than the code above.  It will look like this:


<a href=”http://s262.photobucket.com/albums/ii98/my_bucket/?action=view&current=my_image.jpg&#8221; target=”_blank”><img src=”http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii98/my_bucket/my_image.jpg&#8221; border=”0″ alt=”Photobucket”></a>


This is OK.  It’s just an image with a link tag around it.

If your code disappears, that will be because you miscopied it, so recopy it, making sure you’ve gotten all of it and try again.  🙂

Have fun,

Lily

UPDATE: Hold that thought. Word Press is being uncooperative.  🙂

Edit Comments

geek-glassesHola, Squeers! You now have the power to edit your own comments.  Use this power wisely…or not.  That’s up to you.

After you submit a comment, an icon and link that says “click to edit” will appear under your comment, as will a timer that shows you how much time you have left to edit the comment.  Currently the timer is set to 5 minutes because I’m working on it, but I will be changing that soon.


UPDATE: Changed to 30 minutes if you aren’t logged in.  If you are logged in you should be able to do so anytime you are logged in.

Site problems

geek-glassesOur hosting provider is having routing issues, which means many of you are having difficulty connecting to the site.  Hopefully this will be resolved soon. In the mean time, keep trying.  It seems to be intermittent.
