I was bored and thought it might be fun to read board posts of days gone by. But clicking on the numbers (20) at the bottom page, I was only able to go back to Nov 6, 2017. I even tried manually inserting a higher number in the url bar to no avail. I...

I couldn't get into older post on a local board until I searched all the boards by keywords...then I could see really really old post from all the boards, but I'm not sure if that's how its supposed to work.

No, I believe I had two reserved. But nothing shows now. Guess they get erased after a while. :( Thanks for the info!

But clicking on the numbers (20) at the bottom page, I was only able to go back to Nov 6, 2017. I'm not actually sure which page you're referring to, but I suspect you're looking at a list of "recent" messages rather than "all" messages. It's an import...

It wouldn't be the first time someone thought they listed a box but then it turned out they didn't! Or started listing a box but forgot to click "save" at the end. This is why I always go and do a search for my new listings to be sure they are showing...

I just made a postcard for a ring exchange. I set it up as an “Other” type box but now I can’t add it to the tracker. I should have made it an LTC. I was about to delete it when I realized that I’d lose my AQ number which is already written on the card...

You get one of the admins to fix it. AQ-mail Green Tortuga and ask if he will fix it for you.

I've gone ahead and changed it. Happy trails! -- Ryan

I’m wondering if it’s possible to turn on or enable spoiler tags on this site? I stumbled across a cool artist I thought would be fun to share with the LTCer in a forum post but as I scrolled through her work, I noticed there were a couple of painting...

That's an interesting idea.... I'd never heard of a spoiler tag before. How do you imagine it would look? I googled for information about spoiler tags and see a couple of different ways it might work, but how have you seen it used in the past? -- Ryan

They are used on several other message boards I visit occasionally. I believe they are used like this: [spoiler] [/spoiler] See post 22 in this thread for an example: https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=843800

Goodreads is one site that uses spoiler tags. On Goodreads people post reviews of books they've read, so any spoilers in their reviews can be placed between spoiler tags. Spoiler tags on Goodreads

So I've been playing around with simple ways to make this work, and I have a working version... more-or-less. You might have to click the "refresh" button on your browser to see it work if your browser is using a cached version of the CSS. -- Ryan

Let’s see if it works. Testing 1, 2, 3. ETA: Hmm, not sure I got it. I used both brackets, </spoiler> and [/spoiler]. What am I not doing right?
by Green TortugaProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Letterboxing Help Desk
What am I not doing right? Try clicking that 'refresh' button on your browser. I updated the CSS code, but if your browser is using the old version, you won't see anything. Eventually your browser will pick up the new version, but I set up AQ so it on...

So as a test one could show Ryan's alter ego to see if the spoiler aspect hides the info for those who don't want to know. https://goo.gl/images/577at4 .

Hmm...I am not seeing a second click option to the link. Failed test?

Hmm...I am not seeing a second click option to the link. Failed test? Well... yes and no. Just hovering a mouse cursor over the spoiler is enough to get it to show. Since things like smartphones don't have a mouse, you can tap it (or with a keyboard, m...

I should also point out.... The spoiler tag is something that's embedded into the wiki/html markups, so it actually works anywhere you can type in wiki/html markup. Including AQ mail and clues.... Just sayin'.... ;o) Although there are caveats about...

Wow! Very cool. Thanks Ryan. Also I can see that it will open up some very interesting possibilities for clues. Hmm... So as a test one could show Ryan's alter ego to see if the spoiler aspect hides the info for those who don't want to know. Yeah, th...

I've tried several times to log an unlisted traditional attempt today and each time, it records it as a find. At first, I thought I didn't check the box for attempt, but I removed the find and tried two more times to log it...no luck. The unlisted bo...

Thanks for fixing the bug! I appreciate it. As for the capitalization, that makes sense, but I really did think I was the first to log this particular box. I'll keep your suggestions in mind going forward! Thanks!

I really did think I was the first to log this particular box. Hmm.... I took a look at the code, and you might be right. It looks like I mis-remembered how the code works where AQ automatically capitalizes the first letter of each word. The rest of...

Okay.... I take back some of what I said in my last post. I was digging into the code more and this is what happens.... =) When you click the "Create New Entry" to add new unlisted box, it'll automatically capitalize everything on the next page where...
