Help In Using New Board

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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!

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

    • Hi everyone, This is my first post. I am happy to find a forum for being shared and being answered. I am really despressed with my all symptoms and got confused with tons of information from google :((. Sorry if my story below is long and spend your time. I just want to be shared my worries. Thanks I experienced some symptoms such as abdomen pains, diarrhea, fatigue, one side heachade and enlarged lymph nodes. These things are appeared more frequently after I gave birth to my baby 2 years ago. Recently, it becomes quite bad. I have met some family doctors, they did not concern anything until the recent one. She said that I should try gluten free for 1 month, diary free for 2 weeks, then returned. But I still do not do any tests for comfirming except for CBC test and ultra sound for lymph nodes. All results were normal, except for one indicator in blood test a little low (mchc). The doctor said that she had no concern. I have travelled a lot, so it was hard to eliminate gluten totally. I have had some accidentally gluten eating, so I still feel sick, especially abdomen pain and lymph nodes. I am now in strictly diet for 1.5 weeks and feel quite better, except for the lymph nodes. After 2 months, I finally can return doctor office for more discuss, though I am very worried. To talk about the lymph nodes, I have one in gland for 1 year, not movable; another in neck for about 4-5 months, movable. They are in size of a bean. Are they too big? They seem not enlarge or down size from the day I felt them. Recently, I am very scared to find that there are 2 or 3 on going in the lower neck and groin area. They are at the size of peas. And no one is bad pain, just a little discomfortable. Oh my god, I hope you guys can share my feeling... just some days you wake up and find out that some new lumps growing up in your body. That's a terrible feeling. Has anyone experienced the enlarged lymph nodes? Before or after going gluten free diet. Could the diet help to reduce their size or they will still there. I read about the link between celiac and lymphoma. I am really really scared. My daughter, she is just 2. I will have doctor appointment next week, beside the tests to comfirm celiac, should I ask her to check the lymph nodes again also. Any one got celiac and lymphoma at the same time? Please share your experience. Thank you.
    • For the people that been  diagnosed with celiac diseased and med board, when you got out of the army did you get and disability I've been in the army for 6 years and this has been my family's income for the 6 years, so what assistants have you guys been given???
    • That isn't entirely correct.  the gluten-free list is the stuff that they know is & test to be gluten-free and not made with gluten products.  The other list is no gluten ingredients but not tested .  Read the link for the explanation
    • The issue with Frito is they use the same lines with gluten containing products.  Even though they clean them there is still a chance in cross contamination. 
    • ...I use my vegan cheese sauce recipes in cheesy casserole dishes....they can be bit iffy....I just used my vegan bacon cheese mix and poured it over a large rectangle baking dish of broccoli and topped with shredded vegan cheddar Sunday for this weeks veggie dish. Check the recipe blog on my profile I have various vegan cheese dishes on their, the whole nut ones are creamier the coconut flour ones can be a bit gritty.
