This forum

I just found this forum, WOW, what a great marketplace of ideas.  I am having some trouble with formatting my replies, I can't get my stuff to break into paragraphs.  Is there a trick I should know? 

Oh, there it is.  Or does this only work in the topic part? 

I particularly like the things in the sidebars, the New and Popular discussions being posted in an obvious place.  The Recent posts over on the left by the search button is really nice, too.

Do any of you old hands have helpful hints for a new poster?

I discovered that to break the text into paragraphs, you put the html tag < br > (without any spaces, though) where you want to have a space between paragraphs.


There, I just did it.

Hi, mccoy~
I have a long way to go to get in shape. These are things I have tried/am trying:


I had really gone a long time without any exercise, so I know I needed to start slow. So I got a Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds DVD so I can exercise in-home in front of the TV. I got the WATP Express Basic which included a 1, 2 & 3 mile walk. She's got a lot of different titles; not sure how varied they are. The DVD I bought was just right for an out-of-shape klutz like me!


Recently, I also got the Wii Fit "game", so I have been doing this instead of the Walk Away the Pounds video. I like it. My kids have the other sports games that can be played on the Wii, which is great exercise, but I haven't tried those yet.

I have older tapes/DVDs from Beachbody.com. They also include a sample diet to follow which has been very helpful. I lost a lot of weight through this program after having my kids. It's been a while since I've used the program, but I'm thinking I cld probably benefit from it again. The key is getting yourself mentally motivated to do it. Good luck!

mccoy, watching 4 kids at home should be keeping you fit. Take them to the park and play with them there.

You can't make paragraphs...It's hard for some ppl they use all kinds of creative ways. I just gave up and let it all run together. BUT if your OCD it's gonna drive you crazy. Welcome to the boards!!

Marti,
I don't see a "input format" tab. Where may we find this?

I think this forum used to do paragraphs automatically, but lately it doesn't unless I do the < br > thing.

See, like just now, when I typed in the comments box, I had spaces for paragraphs, but when I clicked Preview comment to see my post, there were no spaces.
