It would be better to write this

"The LogMeIn Community is composed of a number of product discussion boards..."

 

like this

"The LogMeIn Community comprises a number of product discussion boards..."

Re: Getting Started in the LogMeIn Community

I see these two statements in the previous reply:

 

Was your question answered? Please mark it as an Accepted Solution.
Was a post helpful or informative? Give it a Kudo!

 

But, how do we do either?  I tried clicking everything around there and found no way to mark an accepted solution or to give a Kudo.

 

BTW: This new spell check is going to drive me crazy!

 

... And the "invalid HTML" that was mysteriously found in my message and forces me to do another step. What's up with that?

Re: Getting Started in the LogMeIn Community

Hi @Chris Droessler this is great feedback thank you keep it coming! 

 

1) To mark a post as an accepted solution: if you are the poriginal poster of the topic, you will see the button "accept as solution" on each reply to your thread. If one of those replies helped resolve your issue, you can click on the "accept as solution" button to mark it as the solution to your question. So right now, this is only available to the person who originally started the topic/asked the question.

 

Have you been finding solutions to threads you did not start, but that are not marked? We could certainly use the help in getting more solutions marked! Would you like to help us with that?

 

2) You should see on each post a pink thumbs up hand in the lower left corner, with the words "kudo" next to it. Whenever you see a post that is helpful or that you like, you can click on that thumbs up to add your kudo to the post.

 

3) Spell check: can you tell me more about what is bothering you about the spell check? I can look into this and make some adjustments!

 

4) Invalid HTML: can you take me through the steps you took to recreate this error? 

 

Sincerely,
Lisa Kate

Re: Getting Started in the LogMeIn Community

I am no longer getting the html errors.  I was getting them every time I posted a reply.

 

The spell check is no longer automatic, you have to click the spell check icon to have it check the spelling.  The old system put a line under misspelled words as an alert.  Now there are no automatic alerts, so it is too easy to send off a message with spelling errors.  And if you do a spell check one time, and ignore the underlined word "html" and then add another line of text, you have to hit the spell check button again, even though you see the "html" underlined, the system will not look for new misspelled words until you hit the spell-check button.  That's probably why you had a misspelling in your reply.

Re: Getting Started in the LogMeIn Community

On the old system you could reply to an individual message within a discussion.  Then the reply would be just under and indented from the message it was referring to.  Now, if there are 10 messages on one page for a single discussion, replying to any of the messages puts my new message at the bottom of the page, rather then being associated with a specific message higher up on the page.

Re: Getting Started in the LogMeIn Community

At the bottom of my About page, I find "Upload An Image" under "My Photos."  If I click that, it takes me to an Albums page where I cannot figure out how to upload an image.  Is that where I change my icon?

Re: Getting Started in the LogMeIn Community

I am still trying to figure out how to change my icon. The "Upload An Image" button under "My Photos"  does not do anything.

Re: Getting Started in the LogMeIn Community

To follow up on the spell check issue. Today the spell check underlined an entire sentence. This means when I clicked on a single word within  that sentence, your system suggested a single word to replace the entire sentence.   I had to use my arrow keys to get to the word I wanted to change, then backspace and add the new.

 

Here is what I did to encounter this problem, and have tried a few times to ensure repeatability. Type a few words, then type a misspelled word.  Do a spell check. The misspelled word is underlined.  Immediately backspace over the misspelled word, then type the rest of the sentence.  As you type, all of the new text you type will be underlined as if it is misspelled. You can now NOT click on any of the text without your system wanting to replace all of the text with a single word.

 

I accidentally entered "workd" and now the only options I see in the pop-up menu is "ignore" and "ignore all."  It should show me choices like "worked" and "word."

 

And now that I have typed this much, clicking the spell check button does nothing.  Is there a time-out on the spell check?

 

I just highlighted all of the text I typed, copied it, and then refreshed the page. Now when I paste the text, the spell check button works.  Might be a time-out on the spell check.  Frustrating, whatever it is.
