hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself as I'm new to the forum, I live in Phoenix, AZ and while I do not do construction, I do lots of handyman repairs and home automation
What "home automation"?
A Great Place for Information, Comraderie, and a Sucker Punch.
Remodeling Contractor just outside the Glass City.
think of anything low voltage, I want to post a question about building/framing a gable door and keep triggering the spam filter, any ideas why??
There are switches in the forum software-and everybody gets the "authenticated user" one turned on automatically.
Then in the bottom of the switch panel there's another one-"trusted user". That one needs thrown by hand and they gave this dumb carpenter the keys to the panel so I can manually turn that one on if and when I find out someone doesn't have it already done.
note: Users here that have been around for even 10 plus yrs only get the first switch thrown automatically. Dumb stupid situation if you ask me, but that's the way it is.
So point being, if I don't read every thread and post or stumble across someone's plea for access, that switch may never get turned on and someone might just give up and go away.
note: Nice way to run things, no? Lose members because they can't get a post to appear? Makes you wonder.
In your case, once I read your initial post above, I went into your profile and threw that switch for trusted user (figuring if you were a bogus new member I'd just go turn it off later). You shouldn't have had a problem posting after that switch was thrown.
So, try again and let me know what happens.
one more damn note: If you're using the updated Internet Explorer (and I'd guess your not by your being able to post in the first place), then that might pose another problem. Seems this software don't like improvement and you either have to download a different browser or activate a "button" on the title line of the IE browser. It looks like a torn pc. of paper and is up above the address line. You click on that and it enables antique software to work with the new updated IE.
Now, if you are a genius at home automation and can fix this damn predicament we're in here-speak up and I'll see if Taunton can hire you for no pay to take care of it.
thanks, got it posted
Can I ask you what the link is on the bottom of your post?
if an ad, they are not wanted here.
Yeah, no personal ads here. They might get in the way of one of Taunton's paid for Pop-ups. Can't have that.
Include "kitchens.co.uk" in your post and it will go right through.
