USB connectors. I seem to recall some hype that USB was gonna end all the cable connection problems.

 

There are so many different types of connectors though!

Behodar:


One of the Food Bag recipes this week calls for "2 Tbsp cup milk". Rather than guessing at what it means, I figured that it would be easiest to check the online version in the hope that it's been corrected. Alas, they haven't bothered to put this week's recipes on there.


Edit: Five captcha requests to submit a question on the MFB website?!



 


It's a food website - perhaps they are trying to make sure they don't get real Spam...!



.... or phish!




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

When it's 40°C at 9am and the kids have swimming lessons. They are having a ball in the water and I'm sitting on the side sweating my a&$e off.

What phone? If Android, try using Opera.

OnePlus 6. Opera is sloooowin for me on mobile (probably to do with government content filters)

I know it's a non trivial change for a hobby that takes all your spare time but not having a mobile responsive design or an app is clunky.

Don't get me started on BB code either...

freitasm: BBCode? It is standard, what is wrong with it?

 

 

 

I have no idea how these things work, so you'll have to excuse the layman's terms, but some systems for this sort of thing are more user friendly. Many will do the things that BBC is used for here with more simple buttons etc and don't seem to do things like 'break' if you get the quotes wrong etc - for example when shortening them. It seems more automatic, if you will.

 

BBC might be standard - I have no idea - but in terms of modern forum software it is rarely seen or used by users, certainly on non-tech sites like photography forums and so forth.

 

It's probably second nature to many of the people who post here because they work in the tech industry, but those that don't probably do not find it so easy to use. I had, for example, never even heard of it - much less used it - until I came here to this site. (Obviously, that isn't a criticism of you or the site, just a fact).

There'll only be about 2 Minolta users left in the world by now...!

 

 

 

Take for example Digital Photography Review's forums. No BBC (it might work, but I've never seen it mentioned.)

Try doing it for multi quote. Not impossible, but harder than it should/could be.

 

ESP on mobile.

 

I believe it's one of the reasons that more people aren't considerate with their quoting.
