Please note: Following a decision by the Curracag Committee to streamline their online presence an announcement was made at the AGM on 8th February 2017 that this forum will be closing. The date of closure will be the 28th February. All discussion will now take place on the Curracag Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/curracag

If you are particularly interested in birds, in light of the Curracag decision, Outer Hebrides Birds has totally re-vamped their website and will now contain details of sightings, photographs, discussion and a number of resources for birds and birding in the Outer Hebrides. Please head to Outer Hebrides Birds where sign up/registration for users is open. As well as sign up using traditional methods OHB also have the facility for you to sign up/sign in using your Facebook or Twitter account.

Prettying up your posts

To enhance your posts when you are writing them you can use the function keys that are found on the menu at the top of the "editing box"

To use the function keys, what i do, for example to make a word bold is type the word then highlight it (by left-clicking and dragging with the mouse) then you click on the function button. In the editing panel you will see a small piece of code before and after the word - if you want you can scroll down and click the Preview button to see what your post will look like once submitted.

Use the same process to make a word or sentence a different colour - select the required text, click "font colour" and choose a colour from the palette, again, code will be inserted before and after the section you want changed. Once again, you can click the Preview button if you want to see how the finished post will look.

You can use more than one code per highlighted section. For instance this is colour, bold, italicised and underlined. Here is a screenshot of what my editing window looked like while writing this post:-
