I see the digitalnashville icon in my user-settings page and in my profile page. I'd like to get it on my business profile page, but don't see it there and don't quite understand how to get it there. Also (related), I went to edit the digitalnashville directory to which I now have privileges (thanks) so I could add my biz profile page, but where I would add that name and link does not appear when the edit screen opens up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Art, thank you for posting your question. There is a simple answer to your question. Just edit your business profile page, and when you go into edit mode you will be able to see a check mark box at the the top that asks if you would like to display your DN affiliation. Once you click yes to that and either cancel on your page edit, or submit a new page edit, you will both have the badge on your page and be automatically displayed in the Digital Nashville page. The same functionality works for your profile! Thank you for using CivicScope and if you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

SuperJim, I'm struggling with the title fonts. If I don't leave a space between the title and subtitle, they look all jammed up, but if I do leave a space, it's HUGE!
Is there any way to have the main title in Title 1 font and the subtitle, say, in Title 2? It seems to be all or nothing.

I am not sure if I entirely understand your question. If you can post a link to an example so I can see what you are talking about, that would really help. The site does automatically insert vertical space around headings, but it shouldn't be a huge space. See if this helps: at the end of your main title (Heading 1) hold down shift when you press enter and then select (Heading 2) for your sub-title when your cursor is on the line below.

I finally fixed one of them, but they still keep trying to use the same font, no matter what I try. Look at HistoricEllistonPlace to see what I mean about the lines crowding together. There's not a comfortable space between the first line and the second, and it's hard to read. (The writer has already complained about it, so I'm trying to make him happy.) ~ k

Ah! I understand what you are referring to now... the close spacing of two lines within the same heading tag! You could always use a 'heading 2' (if you don't mind a slightly smaller size) for the second line, but there is a simple CSS change I will implement tomorrow that will solve this globally!
Lazy Kate (December 14, 2009 8:03 AM)
I guess it was really two problems, actually. The first one involved changing title fonts; the second one had to do with wrapped lines that ended up looking too crowded because of not having enough space between them. I think you've nailed both issues. Thanks!

Now here's an interesting problem . . . all the names starting with "Mc" split the "Mc" from the rest of the name and turn the whole name into a link, which then takes you to a page that says "This page does not exist. Please create it." What's up with that?
Super User (December 14, 2009 4:45 PM)
Ah, the English language and all of its exceptions. :-) The parsing engine is identifying these camelcase words as possible intended future page names. You can manually make it disregard them by surrounding the word with a double semi-colon on each side ;;LikeThis;; However, I think that I will make a more graceful dynamic solution in the future that will overlook words that start with 'Mc' 'Mac' and some other prefixes or turn off the future page name recognition function.

Good morning! We haven't talked for a while. Hope all is well.
We're having issues with the photos on some of our History Nashville/ Nashville Historical Newsletter pages. They were working just fine until recently, and now they are gone -- most of them leaving behind a little square with an X in it. Can you help us figure out how to put the photos back?
Lazy Kate (July 25, 2012 9:36 PM)
I'm still having problems adding images to my pages. When I try, I'm taken to what must be YOUR photo database, and pictures never, never, never stop trying to open. One more problem -- go to http://www.civicscope.org/nashville-tn/CityCemeteryContents and look at how I had to link that essay to its title on the contents page. It's never done that before -- what has changed?
Lazy Kate (July 25, 2012 10:38 PM)
Same problem on this page: http://www.civicscope.org/nashville-tn/NHNTableofContents I can't add the needed apostrophe in the first title, and I can't separate uncapitalized words, or the link doesn't work -- you're not letting me be grammatically correct, and I'm suffering about it.
