The forum provides a central discussion point for Malta Study Circle members and non members.
I am registered and have a logon to the forum but can't logon to the website
Website logons are strictly for MSC only, if you are an MSC member please request a logon my trying to access any of the 'members' menu options and selecting 'Request a login'
A have to keep logging into the website but the forum is always
The logon policies for the forum and website are maintained separately, as the forum is a public facing tool increased and easier access is maintained where the website logins have a tighter control and inactive users are removed after
I changed my forum password and but my website password has not changed
At the moment the link is only maintained from your website account i.e. only changes to website username or password are replicated to the forum, replications from the forum to the website are not in place yet - WIP.
In order to use the website to forum replication you do have to enable it through the 'members' - 'my-account' - 'forum' - 'Link login with forum' option
Why is there no html editor
We use a forum specific formatting and prevent html blocks being entered as a security policy, the forum specific formatting has all the basic functions of the html tags : Bold, Italic, Embedded Images etc and explained more fully here
Uploading of images to the forum is allowed and can be done in one of two ways. Whem posting a 'topic' to the forum you will see under the message pain window two upload options :
Upload and link to a File Attachment
Upload and Insert and Image File
Both these options will take an image from your local computer and upload it to the server.
The attachment option will add a link to this file and if successful will add text to your message box that will look similar to below :
The insert option if successful will add text to your message box similar to below :
Ideally you would want to insert an image file and attach a document type file but there is nothing to stop you attaching and image file.
The current supported image types are .jpg .jpeg .gif .png
The current supported file types are .doc .pdf
You will not see the final results until you either post or preview the topic.
Selecting either of the options will open a popup box for you to select your image from your machine, the upload is restrictd to certian file types and file size.
The current maximum file size is 215Kb
It is necessasary to protect the server from being swamped with lots of large files. Note. The upload window may crash if you try and upload file sizes greater than this, simple close the window and try again with a smaller size image.
