Here are answers to the questions we hear most often.
If you have a question that isn't answered here, please leave a comment below.
How to change password?
If you've forgotten your password, click the 'Request new password' link. It's on the left of the screen, at the bottom of the 'User login' box.
If you are already logged in and would like to change your password, first click the 'My account' link, on the left of the screen near the bottom. On the next screen click the 'Edit' tab. Type your new password in the 'Password:' and 'Confirm password:' fields, then click the 'Save' button. Your password is updated.
I somehow managed to repeat a post twice through an inadvertent click. I tried to delete it through 'Edit' several times, but failed. Many apologies. Is there a 'delete' option?
That's an admin function. I usually notice duplicates and clean them up promptly, but you're welcome to set the title to:
Duplicate - please delete
That will make sure it's noticed.
Sorry to bother you. I posted a forum topic entitled "Structures on the South Coast of Lei Yue Mun Channel", http://gwulo.com/node/18374. On being "saved" it appears on the screen with huge spaces between some para's, and between some para's and photos, and rather small sized photos. When I have attempted to "edit", the photos in the article don't appear on screen so I can't see exactly where the excessive spaces are and so can't reduce the the size of the spaces or enlarge the photos. Grateful for your advice on how to reduce the spaces and enlarge the photos please.
It's a long article, perhaps over long, so that may be the cause of the problem. If so, please accept my apologies for the bother I've caused.
I've tidied up the formatting. Youmentioned in your email that you'd written the text in Microsoft Word then copied it to Gwulo. Unfortunately that usually causes all sorts of odd effects in the text when displayed in Gwulo. If you prefer to write it up on your PC first, I recommend you simply type it into Notepad. That saves it as plain text, and doesn't cause any strange effects when you paste it into Gwulo.
The other problem, where a photo can't be seen when you try to edit, is described in this thread: http://gwulo.com/node/17835. If you can leave a comment over there and let me know which browser, and version of browser you are using, it will be helpful.
I see I made a mistake in the last two posts. I show Taipo Roadhouse, when they should be Shatin Roadhouse. How do I edit this error?
Thanks for "holding my hands", and getting me this far.
If you go back to those two pages, you should now see an "edit" button just under the black bar that shows the name of the photo. Click Edit, make your changes, click Finish, and it should all be updated.
Thanks David. My confidence has been enormously enhanced by you. Dor jeh!
