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

    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here.

      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.

      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      I was told by the allergist that there are not tests currently for food intolerance, just testing for allergies.  Maybe it depends on the practitioner that you go to.  That would be a relevant question as well as histamine intolerance testing/treatment when choosing a practitioner.  It is helpful to keep a food log with reactions for reference for yourself and the health care professional that you might consult.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
