    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

Is it possible to upload videos or parts of them (from a video camera) of scenery such as waterfalls?

Yes, better to use a You Tube like service, and then use the "Insert media" icon when posting.

Having some trouble embedding youtube videos. I take it the "insert media" icon Dean is referring to now labelled "Special BBCode"? I'm able to copy the code into the URL box and it appears in the "editor box". Problem is when I "preview post" it is again in the "editor box" but not displayed in the "preview box". It also does not appear in the finished post is when it is finally submitted. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Please be more specific. Are you using the Media option under Special BB Code? if so, what are you entering in the Dimensions Box and the Media URL box? You should be copying the link, not the embed code. And what service are you using - YouTube, Vimeo???

Yes, I'm using the Media option under Special BB Code. Is there another way? It's a Youtube video. Nothing in the Dimensions Box( says for Flash only), and pasting the embed code into URL box. I think you answered it, as I've been pasting the embed code and not the link. Is this correct?
