Earlier today I could attach photos.....now I can't. 

Are we limited in some way?

The forum was all backwards but the WOMAD IT Pixie got us back to normal until the GREAT ISOLATION of 2013/14 luckily we're all back together (apart from the weekend break in June 15 and the forum holiday at WOMAD Fuerteventura in November 2015) but who know were the forum will move to in the next few weeks?????

The Winter solstice has solsticed and they sun getting up earlier

Spring is on the way again

Autumn was golden and the sofa was very comfortable

Early bird tickets are hatching fast so you better be quick

1 day until tomorrow. (Another day closer – yet it never seems to come)

1 day until Bacon Butty Friday (other butties and Fridays are available) but what colour is your sauce and brown, red, yellow or white? (Depends on the curry and the company, Cheeky! - Saucy, even!)

Celtic Connections (The Whisky soaked WOMAD of the Celts or is it kilts?) 2016 banging out the tunes and the hip flasks have been drained

Santa has emptyed his sack (Ooh er!), did you get what you wanted? if not may be this year!

the FIERCE EYEBROWS of the 'Scottish' Doctor Who has returned in his doc martin boots and the face of Cardinal Richelieu will he rock out Missy? Or have they already??

THE SUN IS STILL HERE (hopefully it will be around for a few billion WOMADs) YAY!!! YAY!!!!YAY!!!! (Can't see it, mind)

What will you have in your hip flask or flasks?

and........

Don't talk to strangers...unless they're really strange!

Don't cut the red wire
Keep your wellies dry on the inside
Never spit at a camel
Don't be gay (or democratic) in Russia (and don't swear!)
Never boil a kettle - it doesn't bubble as much as water.
Age is only important to cheese and wine and historians
Badgers aren't to blame
Don't let the hamsters nest in your mouth over night
If you take your teeth out at night, remember to get them home by 10.00pm!
Wear red and a large face bush when you're on Winterwatch Unsprung
Have a coffee before you watch a Japanese epic
When all at sea hang onto a floating island
In space no one wants to sneeze
Let your son pay for the curry when he eats more than you do
Vote Hamster
Hug a Beaver!
Don't wave blue lights behind the back of police officer
Wave a flag in front of a stove pipe hat
Vote Bob!
Eurovision is best enjoyed on the WOMAD forum
Twitter power keeps the forum online
I don't get this Euro debt crisis - it's all Greek to me!
Mud is good for the skin
What will be WOMAD 2016 fashion must have wellies?

Morning all. I'll have what Jambo's having please. :)

I've discovered that if I use the phone app to access this forum I can't load the emoticons or post photos.....that's a bit strange. Apart from that I'm looking around our new digs quite favourably. :)

The old forum is still there if you want a last wistful wander about. :huh:

Coffee....strong. My children and their sleeping habits are like pendulums (pendula? too tired to Google). Sometimes they're in sync and sometimes not. Right now--not. 

:girlcrazy: Look! I've found an "Amelie at 6 in the morning" smiley.

What phone do you have Jax? Maybe try a different browser? I think there are forum apps that might work too.

Morning Sindigo. I have a Samsung Note 4. It's just a little glitch on the Playstore app, but it works fine using Chrome. I've set my preferences to receive a sound notification when anyone posts, but that ain't happening at all! :phew:

That's not quite right.

These forums have 'responsive' design, where different things happen dependent on your device.

With regard to what you mention, the edit box buttons are different depending on device, with fewer of the buttons displaying on small-screen devices. The actual functionality still exists, tho.

So you can hand-type smileys, or use standard BBcode for things such as image links and quote boxes, for when the buttons aren't available to you.
