Weather in Plakias
« on: September 22, 2007, 12:14:12 PM »
Not too bad, getting a bit warmer next week, due to plummet again by 05 October, better pack sweaters and more socks after all??????

[a href=\'index.php?act=findpost&pid=0\']Weather in Plakias[/a]

Errr, that didn't work then!  Anyone help me out?

http://www.accuweather.com/world-forecast-...AS&metric=1

Well how weird, the last time I typed in a full address for a link, it didn't work as a link, although similar had done previously on other forums.  Someone on here kindly told me to use the 'Insert: Post Link' facility, so this time I did, but it didn't work (top one).  So then I edited and pasted the full adress - and it automatically turned into the clickable link above???????????????

Hi, Jenny,

Doing a bit of chop'n'change, what you originally posted was ....
Code: [Select]
[post=0]Weather in Plakias[/post]

Errr, that didn't work then!  Anyone help me out?

[url="http://www.accuweather.com/world-forecast-15day.asp?partner=accuweather <forced break> &traveler=0&locCode=EUR|GR|GR000|PLAKIAS&metric=1"] <forced break> http://www.accuweather.com/world-forecast-...AS&metric=1[/url]
{Note: to stop long text lines flowing off the edge of the screen, I have had to split the one-long-string with "<forced break>" insertions - they aren't needed in the proper code.}

What you should have posted is ....
Code: [Select]
[url="http://www.accuweather.com/world-forecast-15day.asp?partner=accuweather <forced break> &traveler=0&locCode=EUR|GR|GR000|PLAKIAS&metric=1"] Weather in Plakias [/url]Which looks like this ....

Weather in Plakias

The basic format is [ url=http.....all that URL jazz ..... ] a bit of helpful text [ /url ]

So, I can see what you are saying - but I still don't really understand the intricacies of this at all, I'm afraid!

In both cased I merely pasted in what I had copied in my browser bar - in the first case I right clicked in the first box in that there "Insert Link" window, and then added the legend Weather in Plakias in the second box.  Cause I thought that was what it was asking me to do??????????

In the second case I right clicked in the post itself and pasted, and that one works.  Although as I said I'd tried that before and it didn't.  

I wouldn't bother trying to persevere with explaining to me actually - I am not going to lose any sleep, but it is just useful, sometimes LOL

PS was that bit in blue supposed to be clickable?

The "bit in blue" is what would be clickable - the " Weather in Plakias " is what was actually clickable ... dunno if that helps or not.

There is no reason to not paste a web address directly from the box-at-the-top into your post ..... but some addresses go on and on and can spill off the side of the screen (which on some boards means the whole thread needs to be scrolled sideways!), so I use the URL-tags to hide the long string and put in a bit of "helpful" text instead.

Whatever works for you is right.

To make it even more simpler Jenny, what I've down in the past is to copy the address onto your message, then cover it and type LINK.

I'm with you all this computor talk leaves me a bit light headed.

To be on topic,  the weather was not good the last few days, sunny, but with clouds (yesterday was cloudy) and some little rain and of course lots of wind, my first two weeks were good, maybe the last 3 days wil improve.

I'm having a wonderfull time anyway.

Steven.

Sounds like we left just before the weather turned - although, truth is, I know where I'd rather be - rain or shine

I'm with you G&K, as long as there is some red wine and some raki, I'd be quite happy snuggled up in the back of some bar

Another good reason to avoid the north coast - those mountains seem to trap all the clouds .... very few make it to the south

We noticed around Heraklion, many of the houses had pitched roofs. We wondered whether that was just a fashion choice or whether it indicated that it was wetter there. They seemed out of place to our minds.

John

Due to be the same temp tomorrow Fri and bit hotter Sat, then will gradually drop to low 20's until Thurs/Fri, then it starts to pick up again.  According to Accuweather that is! - it was 26 today, 'Real Feel' 27 so your body clock or their thermometer is 3 degrees adrift.  I don't care at all what the thermometer says, if it feels like 30 that's well hot enough for me!

So what do you guys (Naturists) do in the winter Jenny, besides turning the heating up  ??
