Help In Using New Board

12 posts in this topic

Would like to email a few right-on postings to my sister who believes she is not celiac disease. She says she couln't be because she feels better when she eats bread and pasta--sounds to me suspiciously like the addiction/allergy connection. She has many of the symptoms discussed here.

I was playing around the other day and discovered that I could email directly from a Forum--or thought I could--without using the cut and paste method. I am now not able to do it. Am I mistaken? It certainly would be helpful if I could email my sister directly from the boards whenever information is given that might be pertinent to her.

There is a button/link in the upper right hand of the text box that says track this topic, email this topic and print this topic. Just pick email. It takes you to a page where you can insert your sisters email and name and send her a link to the information that you want her to read. Hope that helps!!

Jessica,

Thanks for steering me in the right direction--to the top of the page. All I saw at the time when I wanted to email a topic just read was the email button that was there at the bottom of the topic listings. I happened to do it once correctly but forgot how when I tried to repeat; memory is not the same as it used to be!

Another thing: Noticed, today, as I was going through the forums that there's been a change in layout. Some topics are "Pinned" and others are designated as "Forum Topics." Would like to know what this change means. Going to "Help" and "New Board Guidelines/Rules" did not help.

Was glad to see that some topics were switched to more appropriate forums. Sometimes it is difficult to know which forum to use, but it's also obvious in some cases that we're not being careful enough about where we place our new topics. --Aldo

I noticed the change also and like you, didn't find help. Can someone explain?

Thanks in advance, Granny

Hello,

A pinned topic just means that it cannot be moved to a different forum/category. They are pinned by the moderators because they are in the correct forum/category, and this prevents them from being moved.

Take care,

Scott

Thanks, Scott. I've noticed that there has been quite a bit of moving around of topics and merging of forums lately. It makes for a better board but does cause some confusion when not finding your favorite topics where you once found them. Knowing that a Pinned topic will not be moved should eliminate that confusion, or most of it. --Aldo

In replying to a recent post, I quoted some text, and then used that information to ask a question that took the material of the thread into another area of inquiry. I was tempted to start another topic, but did not, wanting to keep topic-growth to a minimum. But by doing so, I now feel that the subject will not receive the attention it might otherwise have received if a new topic had been started--a topic that probably deserves to get this attention and will probably not get it due to its being in the thread it's in. I'm not clear on how best to handle this and wonder if some guidelines could be given so that it would be easier to decide when to start a new thread and when to stay with the one that prompted the question or comment. There are times when the need to start a new topic is clear; other times when it's not so clear; and times when it's clear that a new topic is not necessary. Checking the Help Option did not help with this question. Am I the only one having this problem?

I think I would be clearer if I mention the topic I'm referring to when the problem surfaced. I believe it was about Muir Glen canned tomatoes; were they gluten-free? I quoted from one of the posts on that thread where there was a mention of D"Adamo's blood type diet (posted by Seeking Wholeness, I believe). I wanted to know more about what Sarah had to say about this, and asked for some more details, explaining my own doubts about it because of his "avoid list" for Type As. Sarah is obviously very knowledgeable about the diet and it seemed the perfect opportunity to ask her what came to mind on reading her post.

My question, in a nutshell: should it have been a new topic, or was it right to keep it there where the question was generated by reading one of the posts? Thanks. Aldo

Another question that I probably should be able to figure out on my own but have not been able to. How do you get the bold, italic, and underline type faces that I see being used in some posts? (This is simple to do on my computer but not here on the Board.) I tried clicking on the buttons listed above, first in normal mode and, when that didn't work, in guided mode, which also didn't work. All I got in one post was the number 1 before the phrase and not the italics I wanted.

Another thing that puzzles me--just one of many when it comes to computers--is how are you able to just underline apparently any word or phrase--like "here" or "there"--in the posted message, without using the www address line, and by clicking on it get the website? How long must I apprentice in the arcane arts before I too can do this? --Aldo

Aldo,

There are two ways that I know of to modify the appearance of text. Here's how I do it: I type out my reply and THEN go back and highlight the words I want to modify. While they are highlighted, I click on the button(s) that make them look the way I want them to. That way I don't have to remember to "close the tag" when I want normal text again. The other way is to click on the appropriate button before you start to type the word(s) in question. You will notice that an asterisk (*) appears on the button to indicate that it is in use. When you want to return to normal text, click on the button again to turn it off.

To include a hyperlink that is not itself a web address, click on the "http://" button. A "wizard" will appear and prompt you to enter the web address. After you press OK, you will be prompted to enter the "name" of the website, which is simply the text you want to use as the link (like "here" or "this really fabulous website"). It will automatically appear underlined when the post is submitted.

And before you get the idea that I am a computer geek, let me confess that I still don't know what half of the buttons up there do! I'm just learning as I go along. I hope this helps!

Can you tell me about the" remember me" at log in. I have the box marked, but everytime I come to the board I still have to log in? Any advice

Sarah,

Thanks. The type modifications and the hyperlink worked just as you described it. Maybe someday I'll be able learn from the computer wizards as I get more familiar with their way of doing things. But for now, it seems to be either "live" instruction or I'm dead in the water. --Aldo

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
