    Hi Bill, I had back surgery in 2007 and all went well. I wish you a full recovery and a permanent cure of back pain.

    This is my third round. The first was a dozen years ago. A couple years ago a fusion was done just above the first one and this time it will be just below the first one. As I understand it, they're.also going to install screws, U-bolts, and a lathe knock out bar. :D

    I have a question I would like to post to the General Discussion Forum but can't figure out how to do it. What am I missing?

    I think that Peter knows how, but he was posting a suggestion for the list of HDI questions.

    He is posting in the right thread. I'm looking for suggestions for HDI and FAQS.

    Reading between the lines, It looks like the question is, "how do I post a message?":)

    You just did :). That's pretty much all there is to it.

    Mark, Peter answered my question. I asked for "How do I" suggestions and he gave me one that hasn't yet been covered in the Help & FAQ's section. I believe that the question is really, "How do I start a new thread to ask a question"

    You have to put it on a website and the post the link to it.
    I put mine on YouTube. If you have a google account you should have YouTube.
    Follow the instructions on YouTube. Look for “upload”

    Can use other services such as Vimeo. Most services are free.

    Actually, this thread is for suggestions for Help topics, but I will go ahead and add to what you have said. I disabled attaching videos in a post because hosting video files on the forum consumes too much of our resources. Instead, as you said, upload the video to YouTube or Vimeo and then embed a link to the video in a post. Although YouTube accepts several different formats, the preferred format is MPEG4 (called a container file) which has the file extension, mp4. YouTube recommends using the H.264 codec for lossless compression/decompression. I'm not up to speed on Vimeo, but I suspect that their requirements are similar.

    I don't know who originally posted this but it has saved hours of frustration. On another note simply changing the color of the X so that it wasn't a white X on a white background would eliminate the whole issue.

    Mark it is a limitation of the VB4 style we run on the forums along with the older forum software. Now that the server migration is done to hopefully its long term home, I'll start working on the forum upgrade again. My goal is to be done by New Years. That should fix issues like this and make the site work better with modern browsers and mobile devices. Stay tuned!
