Hello

My "August" post in the Member Reading Log Section seems to have multiplied itself several times, I don't know how! :confused: Could you please advise on how to delete some of these posts, or delete them for me?

Thanks!

You should be able to delete them, Madeleine, by clicking on the little cross at the top right-hand side of your message.

I don't know how you did that :D

Vanessa is right, you can delete your own posts with the little cross on the top right corner of your message.

Anyway, I've deleted the two duplicates.

No I don't know how I did it either :rolleyes:

I can't see a little cross in any of the messages.

Thanks for deleting the others and for your help.

I am having a problem with the smilies. I have 'smilies on' but when I try to drop & drag a smilie, it won't stick. And yet, when I put in a semicolon hyphen parenthesis, it comes out a smilie.

What gives?

I think the cross only shows if you're the last person to post on a thread. Another way is to click on the pencil icon at the top right hand side of your message, then scroll down to where it gives you the 'delete message' option.

Ah right that probably explains why I couldn't see the cross. Thanks.

Emily,

It doesn't work if you drag and drop, you just click on the smiley and it will be inserted where you left the cursor ;)
