Matthew,

I noticed the underlining in some of the posts and was not quite sure as to what it was. Now that I have had a chance to read through this thread, I must say it is a welcome improvement and feature. I look forward to more tools to enhance not only my posting experience here, but that of the community.

In IC XC,
Father Anthony+

Matthew,

To you and your IT team; Many thanks. This is great and I most of all will benefit from it. Especially the pop up panes.

Paul

Lovin' it. Hypertext the way it should be...

Dear all,

We're up through the end of 'E' as of the moment. Also, a new feature, currently being tested:
  • The dictionary will only underline / link the first occurence of a term in a post. For example, there is only one hyperlinked term in the following phrase: 'At the eschaton many things related to the eschaton will take place, it being the eschaton'. The idea here is to reduce clutter, in posts where a common term (e.g. orthodox, or church) is repeated many times.
INXC, Matthew

Matthew,

I'd like to note a glitch that I just discovered created by the dictionary function. See my recent post from the introductions thread. I embedded a link to the location of a new thread. The title of the thread has the word "Orthodox" in it and the dictionary picked that up and created an automatic link. The dictionary link, however supersedes the embedded link and so the embedded link is cut off halfway through the phrase in which it is embedded. I went back into editing and the terms of the link that I had set were still there, but they don't appear in the post since the editor doesn't really control the automatic link.

Dear father,

Thank you for noting this - which I had also seen. Yet another thing to work on!

I'm happy to note, however, that by and large the new dictionary system works very well. Now I just need to find the time to activate the links for words past 'E' in the dictionary!

INXC, Matthew

For some reason I was thinking about the dictionary function a couple of days ago and was wondering if it were still active? I have not seen any indications of it, well, in a long time. Just curious

Thanks
Paul

The dictionary hasn't been available in quite awhile. After more recent changes though I can't seem to find the spell checker which is more what I need.
