Quiller

Thats great. You should have seen me trying out your advice in the mod section of the other board last week Image.
That visual thing would have made it alot easier and quicker (in the end Jen had to really spell it out for me).

I am assuming that the video is made by you and its your voice that I can hear?

Yes, I made it. The microphone was only $10 at Radio Shack. To make the video, I used Windows Media Encoder.

Okay, since the video appears to be removed, someone help me please. I can't figure out how to insert a text link within words, if that makes sense, the way that Quiller did above in "Windows Media Encoder". I've tried the way I do on an unrelated forum but nope.

the long way of inserting a link is to type

Code: Select all
[url=http://www.something.com]Name of link in blue[/url]


and it should just work.

That is you type the square brackets and url= bits. This is what you saw when you hover though right.

Well done on sorting it out! :ugeek:

Quiller's video clips were wonderfully helpful and generous, so it is really disappointing that he removed them, but that's life.

So many things that we think of as "ours" turn out to be only on loan, and often for too short a time.

Perhaps the threads should be rewritten to remove references to the video clips and instead provide written explanations?

Kind regards,
