Before posting to this forum, you need to understand that it is also connected to a mailing list that existed before the forum, and that we must respect that community's wishes. EVERY forum post that you make is immediately sent to that mailing list as an email. Messages that include no context may make sense on a threaded forum, but make no sense to an email user that can't easily see the previous message to which you are replying.
Therefore, when replying to another post (including your own), YOU MUST INCLUDE the relevant parts of the post to which you are replying in quotes. That way, when someone is following on the mailing list, they won't get an email that says "Here's what you can do about that?" without having any idea what "that" is.
The easiest way to do this is to use your mouse to select the appropriate amount of text needed for context, then right click and select "Copy." Paste that message into your forum post as the first paragraph or two. THEN SELECT THE PASTED TEXT AGAIN and click the "Quote" button just below the title of your post. That will place the "Quote" and "End Quote" codes around your text, causing it to show up as a quote in the forum post and in the email to the mailing list.
Your assistance in this is greatly appreciated.
