Question is how do you tag people or another thread within a post?   AW

  • Hi Warrior.

    I only learnt how to do this a little while ago. When you want to tag someone put the @ sign in then immediately start writing their name. A box will pop up immediately below giving you the options. Press on the name you want and hey presto they are tagged. I have tagged you into this thread and you should be notified.  

  • Hi AW

    To tag a thread you type in the @ sign then type in the name of the thread -  so typing in "How to tag people" and then look under the second heading "other content" and the thread is there.

  • To add a thread on mobile, click on it. At the top right of the page are 3 dots in a vertical line. Click on it - there should be an option to copy. Press on it and it should say ' copied to....' Go back to the thread you want to insert it into and on a new line press on the screen. It should give you the options to 'paste'. Press on it and it should appear. Make sure you then go onto a new line before exiting or carrying on.

    If you are on a laptop then copy and paste the web page.

  • Hi Brian great to hear of the update coming soon, a lot  of members on the LWIC forum have not posted for a while, and hopefully it's due to technical issues, though understandably darker thoughts are present at times, take care

  • I have a feeling   we will have to limit the number of "tags" you are able to use otherwise I feel a dose of "tagitis" and we will all be answering to you!!

  • Hmm... "Tagitis" sounds bad!
