For those of us who don't know Otford, where is the recreation ground car park located?

Any chance of posting a map with the two locations on it.

There's a Google map (from which you can get driving directions) in the event details Miriam put up on the main website...

There are three links in my post above that give you all the information you need. Highlighted in red. Click on them.

Rick do you think people are confused by the fact that the links are the same colour as the titles, etc ? If so can they be changed?

Or are they just stupid?

Mike I think you are right, I'm good at filtering unnecessary info but I completely missed the link there.

The titles are also links (so that you can get the link for an individual message within a conversation) which is why they're link-coloured... :wall:

Not really, you can change the links in the forum using the existing CSS
If you inspect the link to the post

<div class="post">&nbsp;<img src="http://forum.orpington-astronomy.org.uk/Smileys/default/headwall.gif" alt="Hitting the wall" border="0" />

, you will see that it is in its own div with a class of post, i.e. div.post, you can change any of the elements that refer to that class of post.
So it would be easy to change the anchors within that class to a different colour, without changing the colours of the links outside of the posts

You should be able to tweek the css sheet for the forum, if not then all people need to do is to install a plug in that allows them to change the css on the fly.

Loads of people change web pages after they have loaded, especially people with impaired vision as they can change the fonts to be bigger, different colours ect.

Links in MY FORUM are the same colour as everyone elses, but links inside posts are green.

That falls firmly into "silly bees" territory. Or possibly "clever clogs". :alien2: :abducted:

I don't expect many folk (other than Mac) use this sort of wizardry, but the update planned for tomorrow (Tuesday) morning will break any custom local CSS you may have, as the new version uses a rather different style template, so re-engineering may be required.
