    I know it's a long time since I have been posting on TES forums and all manner of exciting new changes have taken place, but why am I able to post on one forum (Workplace Dilemmas) because the reply boxes and start topic boxes are green, but on Opinion where I really want to reply to the 'stressed teachers' topic the boxes are stubbornly grey.

    Please make explanations really simple. [​IMG]

    I think you may need to 'join' the forum. Look for the red box at the top, where the title of the forum is. Hope that helps.

    It's way to easy to unjoin if you aren't careful (or to miss if you don't know you have to join).

    Something else that could be done away with come the revolution

    Especially easy to unjoin if you use a tablet device. I think the annoying drop down menus that pop up if if the cursor is hovering around them when the page loads don't help.
  5. The possibility of my being able to help with an IT problem is vanishingly small, so why did I open this thread?

    Because you are naturally a helpful type Bill?

    The thing is that you never know
    I remember that, during the post-update confusions, a simple comment from a (now forcibly departed) older poster who admitted to being a technical numpty (with some justification) helped me to solve a baffling technicality.

    My goodness, was that all? Thanks everyone. I thought I was going to have to bribe the door keeper to get in?

    Bill however bad you are you cannot be as useless your truly, and Tidal count me in for the revolution!
