member page functions

Is there any way to embed images/graphics in member page quick posts? (like on forum posts for example)

Thanks,

Robin

access to member pages when not logged in

I notice there is no direct access to member pages from the website when not logged in but they are accessible if the link is known eg 

https://britastro.org/profile?id=146

https://britastro.org/node/20453

Is this intentional or just the way it works ?

Quick Posts

Hi Robin,

The quick posts are just designed to be text. A nice idea but for that kind of featured post I suggest using the forum as you already do.

Best wishes,

Andy

Blog post

Thanks Andy,

I was thinking it might be interesting to use the personal page like a blog,  text  images and graphics  covering  particular topics. (Similar to  the  BAA articles but in the personal pages.) A combination of  the quick post and the image submission functions which don't quite fill this need individually. Opening up the quick post function to include graphics would do this I think. Is this something that might be considered for the future? 

Cheers

Robin

A source for articles

These could perhaps be a source for content for the more general articles on the website or worked up into articles or even peer reviewed papers for the Journal, a sort of informal BAA arXiv ?

Access to member pages when not logged in

Hi Robin,

You can still access member pages when not logged in, though you have more buttons and capabilities when logged in. For example, I just logged out, clicked on your name in this post and that took me to your member page.

Best wishes,

Andy
