The column thing will be WONDERFUL for smartphone users... even with a rotated screen, a person needs to move back and forth sideways to see the full clues.

I don't want to select one clue per page because most clues are short enough that I can get two or three to a page. What I don't want is to have the third clue start on one page and end on the next. The way I get around that now is to only select the first two clues, print them, and then print the next set, again checking print preview to see if they all fit on one page.

If you don't allow split clues, we'll start the clue on a new page if it won't completely fit on the current page.

I just read Ryan's reply about the options only being available on the Opera browser right now and am looking forward to the update:
I'm updating the "print all clues" page--more or less rewriting the whole thing with more options

Right now, we're talking about the "print multiple clues at a time" page. I don't really see how that page would be useful for smartphone users at all. It was designed specifically for printing clues. Smartphone users could just read the clue page itself on an as-needed basis.

And although there's no reason for the redesigned page not to be smartphone friendly, I still don't see how it would be useful for smartphone users. Be that as it may, you won't see columns at all on smartphones. Trying to cram two (or more) columns of text on a narrow smartphone display? There's just not room for that!

Multi-columned pages are for wide displays where it's easier for people to read shorter lines of text than ungainly long ones.

Yeah, I've never liked that either, but for the longest time, none of the major browsers supported the CSS to do that. They all do now, though, so that problem will be coming to an end! (Unless you use a really old version of IE or something.)

It is with great excitement to say when I went boxing today, my phone displayed the clues in a wrap around mode vs the previous full page which required moving the page back and forth to read the clues! I did not do anything with my settings whatsoever. You may not intentionally done an adjustment for this but it is wonderful just the same. None of the other info appears in the wrap around mode except the info on the clue page which is just fine, but when walking and reading clues on a very small screen it works great!

Thanks,
Wendy

Oh, it was definitely intentional. *nodding* Part of my 1000-step plan to turn AQ into a smartphone-friendly website. ;o)

It'll take months (and perhaps years) to fully convert it, but eventually it'll get done.... One page and one feature at time. =)

Let's just say at this point, AQ has achieved more steps of wassafication than Smartphone-friendly.

"Sent" Mail & "Inbox" Mail

Just wanted to double check to see if I understand this correctly - if I send someone a message, but they haven't read it yet, their trailname will remain in bold font?

Also, my "Sent" messages delete after two weeks, so after two weeks, there is no way to tell if they have ever read my message?

======
for "Inbox" Mail, only the last 30 days of mail are shown? Meaning that if someone hasn't logged in for 2 months, they won't see mail sent to them from day 31-60?

Asking because I am trying to get a stamp back from someone who doesn't log in often. :(

Read messages are deleted after 30 days. Any UNREAD mail will still be in their inbox for a full year, but you are correct that you have no way of knowing if they've read it or not after the first two weeks.

Unless they have their AQ mail forwarded to their regular email account. Then it will never be bold. But if you do see a name in bold, then yes, that means it has not been read.

Kind of 'round-about' way, but if you really need to save a sent message longer than two weeks, open the message, forward it to yourself, and from your inbox, you can archive the message. Of course, the read/unread is irrelevant at that point.

I just have to say, Shawna, thank you for asking the questions you do and noticing the changes that have happened during your absence - you are bringing good energy to the boards, reminders of some of the changes that have happened, and fun reminiscing opportunities as well. Keep it up AND welcome back :)

More-or-less, but it's not infallible. It's easy to mark a message as read or unread at whim, and if they forward messages to their regular email address, the icons means absolutely nothing. Even if they have messages forwarded to an email address, the trailname might be bold or not--there are two different forwarding options and one leaves the message as read on AQ and the other leaves it as unread.

So in a nutshell, as a rule of thumb, it might work. But really, there are absolutely no absolutes when it comes to knowing if someone has read your message or not.

Is there a significant difference between Lock & Lock and Lock N Lock?

I always thought it was Lock N Lock (LnL) till just went online to try and purchase and my search brought up both LnL and L&L.

And while we are on the subject, best place to order online? Right this minute am needing 8 of the small 10oz containers.

A while back we ordered a 30pc set and the price was fab but included were a few ridiculous sized containers that while we did end up finding uses for them, eh I don't want to bother with or store.
