appearance of posts

Hi

Anyone know how to do either of these things?

(i)  My MathsIsFun pages have a light blue backgound.  I'd like to change it to light green.  Is this possible?

(ii)  I have two images, let's say A and B.  I'd like both to appear under my post, in that order.

I've posted just A.  Then edited and added B.  But B appears first.

So I've tried to edit again and add another A.  It doesn't appear.  So I still have B then A.

So I've thought, maybe I should post B  first, then edit and add A.

But now it won't let me delete either, so I seem to be stuck with B before A.

What should I do to get A first?

Any ideas much appreciated.  Thanks.

Now, I'm even more confused.  dizzy

I've repeated this here and the images are in the right order this time.

But not in http://www.mathisfunforum.com/viewtopic … 77#p209977

dunno

Re: appearance of posts

experiment

I've renamed A as C.

And it now appears second.  Could it simply be that the images are shown in alphabetical order of filename regardless of the post order?

In which case, I've answered that question myself.

Re: appearance of posts

Hi;

I have trouble deleting images too! In your profile-display you have some different settings for backgrounds and things.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Hi bob

Yes,I too had those problems with pictures.

For the background,go to settings,then go under display,and there you should find one of those things that go down whe you click the little down arrow on the right. There you can choose backgroung colour.

Yes, I've tried those.  No green option.

MIF.  Could this be added.  It's not for me but another member.

Hi bob

Have you tried Lithium?

Re: appearance of posts

I could try to make a new template (if I can)  dizzy

The images are a "plug-in" and the programming looks hard faint

Re: appearance of posts

hi Stefy,

Have you tried Lithium?

Trying it now.  The links are white on a green background, good.  But the main window still has a light blue background.

hi MIF:  What I was hoping for is to show Mandy Jane how to get a green background so she can read the words more easily.  If you look back at the last 20 posts you'll see she is only taking in about half of what's in front of her.  I'm hoping the right background might make it easier for her.

But, before you spend ages on this, I'd better check with her.  It might be that the light blue is reasonable in which case there's nothing to be gained.  I'll ask her in her "Just want to say hello" post.

Mandy likes Lithium better than SleekBlue.

I think that means a green background option would be a good.  Just think of all those struggling readers who will erect a statue in your honour.

We await your genious.  kiss
