Help!

As an absolute beginner, other than the typed word, I am VERY  impressed with the photographs which accompany some of the messages.  Can someone please explain how this is done?

Also - what does the Teletype icon do?

Thank you.

I'm learning something new- where the devil is the teletype icon :-[ ???

I would suggest that you try asking on the beginners board.  Ive been on here for ages and I'm still asking questions on there - they are so helpfull :)

Good luck

Thanks Fiona for your prompt reply and helpful suggestion.  I will give this a try later.  The teletype icon is on the bottom row of the BBC tags (the typewriter). 

This is an excellent site but a bit too technical for me at present; no doubt I will be able to find my way around it (I hope) as time goes on.   I have never spent so much time at the keyboard - I'm supposed to be researching names for family history but get sidetracked reading all the postings!

Many thanks.

Hi Lavinia,

Welcome to Rootschat.  You are not alone about getting sidetracked reading the boards.  A whole afternoon can go by as I am so engrossed.  This is a friendly and very helpful site so enjoy.  As for technical questions there is always someone who can help you.  I must admit, however, that I still have not mastered the art of putting the pictures on site, mainly because I lack the technical expertise to make the pictures small enough to load them on.
