Because I needed to look at some of these myself just now, and because there is lots of still-useful information there, I thought I’d post a link which may be handy for anyone else, especially newer members:
This is the top page of the Asking Questions section:
Yes, thanks Mike. There is a lot of collected wisdom and experience there that is worth keeping. It is fun to look through some of the old threads and see posts from current old-hands from back in the day when they were first learning.
I hope we can get all these treads ‘attached’ to the lessons on the new forum. I think it encourages people to ask questions if they are a bit stuck - they know others have had similar problems. We can all learn from each other. It is one of the best parts of the forum.
Thanks Mike - a timely reminder to me to update the FAQ page.
If you need to access the old forum now, you can find it under item 12 “What to do if i have a question”.
Having said that, reading the FAQ section has reminded me of how long ago the FAQs were written (For instance, when we were still operating on Wordpress), and how many time the page has been patched up, rather than re-written.
