    For embedding pictures, use the "A" circle icon on the right hand side. A toolbar should appear with various formatting options. Find the icon of mountain and sun, click that.

        Q: How do I get to the last post of a thread instead of seeing page 1 every time I click a link?

        A: On the main discussion page in the "last post" column, you'll see a name, and date, and an "arrow". Click that arrow and it will take you to the last post of that thread.

          Is there any equivalent of the "first unread" button we used to have?

            I found a way to post pictures that works for me from Photobucket on my iPad



            I go to Photobucket and copy my image
            I then tap the A in the top right-hand corner of the comments box
            I then tap the link button
            a URL box appears & I paste the link in there

              On top right. Click on your user name, then user settings, then account. Near the bottom, there is a box to enter people you want to ignore.

                  Without using c+p of course, before someone suggests that.

                  I just figured it out. You just hit Quote on each post you want to quote. A Post Reply button comes up in the top left corner of the screen with the number of posts quoted in parentheses. Hit that and they all go into the reply box.

                      I noticed today that it didn't work for me. I have someone on ignore, and I tested it when I first put them on the list. Then today I saw one of their posts. Double-checked my ignore list and they are still on it. Has anyone else seen something like this?
