Dear Pickering Posters,

Welcome to our shiny new home. As you are probably aware, the wheels have been falling off the old Pickering Post and it was time to move on. I can guarantee we will have teething issues. For a start, we are only going to have a couple of articles up for a little while but rest assured, the others will be joining us soon.

You will be able to keep your old usernames and passwords BUT WITH ONE IMPORTANT CAVEAT. IF YOU HAD A SPACE ANYWHERE IN YOUR USERNAME IT HAS BEEN REMOVED. EG IF YOUR NAME WAS “NURSE RATCHED” ON THE OLD SITE, IT WILL NOW BE “NURSERATCHED”

Your browser may not recognise your password any longer because of this so please re enter your password. If you don’t know how to get your password out of your browser, Google it.Feedback is very welcome but please keep it constructive and don’t swear at us too much. This is a free site and we aim to give you your money’s worth. We have to work on a shoestring budget and that limits our choices. At this point I would like to mention Brendan the Dev (which I believe is short for developer and not devil – though I sometimes wonder) who does tireless work with little recognition. We could not have done this without him.This upgrade was totally necessary and long overdue. It will allow us to do lots of different things that we couldn’t before. 

There will be differences and they will not be to everyone’s liking. However, some may be beyond my control. So please keep your chins up and try to take the rough with the smooth, particularly while we are in transition mode. Please note you won’t get your avatar just yet, we are working on it.

Also note, this post will be stuck to the top of the blog for a little while until everyone catches up with what is going on.

Hopefully this will be the start of a new and exciting journey for the Pickering Post. Let’s hope so.

Regards,

Harry and the team.

(b)bold(/b)

(i)italics(/i)

(blockquote)

block quote

(/blockquote)

(u)underline(/u)

(ul)

    unordered list

  • milk
  • tea
  • eggs

(/ul)

(ol)

    ordered list

  1. milk
  2. tea
  3. eggs

(/ol)

(li)

  • bullet
  • (/li)

    NB you must choose li for each line item
    ie
    (ol)
    (li)Milk
    (li)Tea
    (li)Eggs
    (/li)(/ol)
    So there is not much use for ul other than to get a little paragraph indent.

    this is what code looks like

    this is what spoiler looks like

    NB the text must be in the supplied quotation marks (spoiler title=”this is what spoiler looks like”)

    this is what spoiler + code looks like

    Also q and /q are good for quotations
