Another couple of bugs while I was browsing this thread and then attempting to post this comment...
Last edited by EagleJCS; 08-07-2013, 12:41 PM.
- When I clicked on the ‘go to first new post’ on the sub-forum page, I was taken to the first post in the thread. (I waited to be sure the thread was finished loading.)
- The first page shows only 16 pages of thread posts, but the last page shows there are 17.
- After logging in, when I was trying to type in the quick post field to note the two bugs above, my quick post Auto-saved, then what I was had just typed disappeared and I was unable to bring it back up. (I have resorted to typing this up in Word then doing cut-and-paste to post it.)
- The whole reason I browsed this thread was to see the latest comments/posts. The front page indicated there was a post by SRBeaver in the thread from yesterday (8/6/2013), but I don't see it anywhere.
- Another bug came up when I posted. My post was put in position 241 at the bottom of page 16 when I clicked on Post Reply, but when I came back into the thread to edit (to add this bug), it is in the prper location (post 242) on page 17 - which can still only be reached by going to page 16 from page 1, then on to page 17.

The login on the android cell phone under Foxfire doesn't work.

If someone could show me how to create a sub-forum I'd appreciate it.

At least when using the "New Topics" feature, the "Sort By" function does not work. I tried Started Post, Last Update, Replies and Title. It gets resorted, but it's clearly not even close to correct.

Help!! How do you start a new topic? I have pressed the new topic button till I'm red in the face! While I'm at it why do I have to go to the top of the page to go to the next page. Please Help!! Ea.
King Ding Dong commented08-31-2013, 12:41 PMEditing a commentI do not have new topic problem. Try logging out closing your browser and logging back in.
Although I can name them it seems some of the forums are set up differently. I have noticed some have "page 1 2 3 4". At the bottom and some do not.
My biggest problem is deleting all my RETURN keys so my posts end up one big paragraph and I cannot edit a post only a comment,
Basementdweller commented09-01-2013, 01:57 PMEditing a commentYa there is some sort of a weird time out thing that happens especailly if you type a long response
log out and back in then paste the response where it goes.

I see this software supports "sticky" topics in forums. Is this handled by any moderator?
For example, Kudu posted this topic The Patrol Method of William Hillcourt containing much useful reference information. Seems to be "sticky" topic candidate.Last edited by RememberSchiff; 09-21-2013, 03:13 PM.
09-25-2013, 04:12 PMEditing a commentNJCubScouter, For instance "Camping & High Adventure"
has a "Sub-Forum" listed under it,
"Equipment Reviews & Discussions"
Someone looking for equipment reviews need not sift through pages of Camping and High-Adventure discussions that have nothing to do with equipment.
So, someone who comes to Scouter.Com because they hear that the site is dedicated to William Hillcourt, should not have to sift through pages of "Lessons and questions of Scout leadership and operating troop program" to find out how to implement William Hillcourt's "Real" Patrol Method (what a Patrol does apart from the Troop).

But here's the thing: 1, I don't know how to do any of that; 2, As far as I know, I don't even have the "buttons" to do that, 3, Even if I resolved #1 and 2, I still wouldn't do it on my own, I think it would require a discussion among the moderators and perhaps the forum owner as well. (And keep in mind, I am one of the "newbie" moderators here.) But now that I have raised it here, let's see what happens.Last edited by NJCubScouter; 09-25-2013, 08:21 PM.
09-26-2013, 05:09 PMEditing a commentIn theory "Leadership Development" is a separate Method of Scouting, so it should have it's own forum:
"Leadership Development: Lessons and questions of Scout leadership and operating Troop program".
The correct tagline for the Patrol Method in a Website dedicated to the memory of William Hillcourt would be:
"The Patrol Method: What a Patrol does apart from the Troop"
With at least two sub-forums:
William "Green Bar Bill" Hillcourt's Patrol Method.
Lord Baden-Powell's Patrol System
There are now two (2) Baden-Powell Scouts associations in the United States. A Baden-Powell sub-forum might help with the steep learning curve any American must master when transitioning from BSA Scouting to Baden-Powell's system.
As for forums "making a point," the term "Real" Patrol was Hillcourt's term. It seems provocative only because, and I'll say this as gently as possible, Hillcourt never dreamed that Wood Badge would intentionally destroy his life's work.

I am having trouble posting ... just wrote a looooong post and it keeps on telling me about some string problem what not?
Edit: Logged in, logged out and seems to work now. Had it several times in the past days that I wrote something and couldnt post it.Last edited by berliner; 09-25-2013, 07:19 PM.
packsaddle commented09-30-2013, 03:44 PMEditing a commentSame here. It seems like there is a 'timer' on the composition of posts. Better keep this one short.
10-01-2013, 03:21 PMEditing a commentDoes the auto-save function work for you? It often asks me to save or discard old drafts from previous days.

Work around for the "time out" ::: Write your loooooong response/diatribe/rant/discourse/lecture on a seperate page in your home "documents", then "copy " it and "Paste" it in to the forum response. Do not do any fancy capitols or colors or differences in type face or size. They MAY gum things up.
Has worked for me.
NJCubScouter commented10-04-2013, 04:41 PMEditing a commentThat is what I do too... when I remember to do it.

A scout is never taken by surprise; he knows exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens.
As you can see one of those links is "Find all blog entries" and another is "Find all group topics."
Under the "Help" tab in the bottom right corner it says: "To create a new blog, just go to the Blogs tab and right underneath the Blogs tab in the main navigation is the option to Create a New Blog." Where is this blog tab?
The same with the groups: "Go to the Groups page and on the module that is displayed, click the '+ Create Group' button." Where is this groups page? --Roy
