Just tried to add mine - I presume it goes in the "story text" box?

SDLwon't let me copy and paste either......

I tried both copying from the CBB entry and also directly from Word. It won't take either. What am I doing wrong please?

I think it's got a problem with certain versions of Internet Explorer - that might be it?

You have to turn off MCE or something like that - know there's a solution in one of these threads that I found a while back.

It doesn't like copy+pasting - turn off tinyMCE or use paste from Word (clipboard icon with Word symbol on).

Sorry to spree but I'm sorry I still can't see how to do it. I did manage to copy and paste and I thought I had added the first one (Dec 7th, albeit with the wrong date :oops: ) but it doesn't seem to be anywhere and I don't anyway see how to add it to the series despite Minim's careful explanation.

I don't feel well enough (chest lurgy) to fiddle around trying to work it all out so if anyone else is kind enough to put 7th December and 15th December up for me I would be very grateful.

Or explain it again in words of even fewer syllables than Minim's post about adding to the series and I will try again tomorrow!

Many thanks....

As I remember it you have to go into your own settings to turn of Tiny MCE, not just try and do it on the page you post.

But it's a long time since I posted anything on there, so I'm not the best person to advise.

Thanks for all the help, I finally managed it only to find to my disgust that the paragraph formatting had all vanished so that I had to go back in to redo them.

And I am blowed if I can see how to put in weblinks as we do on here. So if anyone wants to follow the links they have to highlight the words within the brackets and then right click to follow the link.

Unless Minim ( or someone else) can tell me otherwise?

I'm sorry - I can't find my username or account. Is it best to make a new account please?

I forgot to say in my last post that I was wishing when I was writing my drabble that the song 'It will be lonely this Christmas' had been written ten years earlier!

I've only just read this, but yes, I'll copy mine over.

ETA: Day 17 added.

I have no idea whether I have an SDL account or not, so I'd be grateful if Alison could post mine for me - day 2 and day 22, I think.

Done. I've put you as "co-author" - you've got an account, but haven't posted any stories before :D .

I'm sorry this is rather late but would it be possible for you to copy my drabble over as well please Alison? I can't even find my account on the SDL.
