you move the sliders at the right. The top set are for the colour of the lines, and the bottom set for fill colours. You have to move them before you draw something.

 Error!
Reason: Segment "fileadmin" was not a keyword for a postVarSet as expected!

The problem was in some url blacklisting code, which I have disabled until I can work out what was causing it.

SOrry about that, the Wikipedia page that we were using to blacklist spam posts got corrupted. I have added a thing so that corruption shouldn't be a problem

You may have read in that thread that I quickly found a workaround - although the fact that the workaround works at all implies that there may be hole in our blacklisting mechanism.

I was simply posing the message as a single dot, and then went in to modify the message with the intended text (using the inline modify option rather than the preview option).

If I did not trigger this faulty blacklist code by that way, it implies that the blacklist code does not check for modified code, only the original posts.

The blacklist is a list of slightly altered regular expressions, the wikipedia page added an extra line at the bottom that looked like:
[[Category:]]
which I think was what was causing the problem - I am not quite sure how this was being parsed as a regular expression, but when I deleted it all was well...

Not an error, but a slight problem and suggestion:
On long threads and particularly the very long threads, like  Question of the Week, it is a long way to go, to get to the current topic or post. Have you thought of arranging things the other way round?.
Perhaps the introductory question could be at the top but the current posts would be easier to find if they were near the beginning.
I bet you get this suggestion all the time and have considered it - if so, sorry.

You can go directly to the latest post.

If, rather than clicking on the thread title, you click on the icon on the right that looks like this: , then you will be taken directly to the most recent post in the thread.

It doesn´t tell you when your post gos over the 20,000 chacters, and you can loss you info if your not careful; could it not be possible to either give a warning when the limit is reached, or increase the post size?

I have never had that happen.. You could write it in word also, but maybe Dave could help.. I am not sure about the mechanics of that as I have never experienced that! In the mean time you could put it in a word program and maybe split it into two posts..until we find out! THanks Jolly for letting someone know!

20,000 characters is over generous. If you or anyone is seriously submitting a post of this length then i would suggest the following:

1. always save your text before posting to either a word (microsoft) or text document before posting, should you encounter a problem, you will always have a copy of your text.

2. split the post in to two posts.

3. to post such a large post, i would assume that it is full of quotes. if this is the case then slim down the quote, any part of the quote you are not directly replying to can be omitted and substituted with; ...

I have gone over the limit, but I thought (it was some time ago) that I was given a warning when it was too large.

But, as people have suggested, any large submission like that I will always first create in a separate document (Open Office rather than Microsoft Word - but the same idea, just my own preferred WP).  Even if I were to type it straight in, and lose it, I would normally be able tp recover it key going through the 'back' key on the browser until I get to the page where I created the post.

Incidentally, one thing I have found is that the rules about size limits seem to be more relaxed when modifying a post than when creating a new post (so, if i want to create a large post, it is sometimes easier to create a smaller post, and then click on the in line modify button, on the bottom right of the post, and then insert the larger chunk of text into the post).

Well That is interesting! So I guess Paul and I and George do similar things in those circumstances.. I think most word programs, do word or character count don't they?

Have split the discussion on WP's to a separate thread (http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=8538.0) to prevent cluttering the error log.

Yep, we have a problem - I see it too.

The web links seem mostly to be links that are elsewhere on the page, but are inappropriately slipped as well in between table rows.

Not sure there the suffonmycat is from, but seems associated with you, Neil.

I am seeing the stuffonmycat only on threads that you have contributed to (as far as I can see), but I see other web links appearing on other threads.

They are displayed (as you indicate with your screen shots) just above the message list, but looking at the HTML source, it is inserted in the source on this page just above your message 110938, and similarly embedded between messages in other threads.

Neil, as I said, it was not down to you - the choice of link was down to you, but the fact that a link of some sort was appearing erroneously was not down to you - not least because now that you have removed your link, a different link has appeared erroneously.
