Do any of you guys see that black box with white borders in the right corner of the "Prepping May 2020" thread? I can't get it to close out and it makes it a challenge to read what people are saying.  Pressing "close" doesn't close it. Just wondering if it's only me or not.

Be prepared! It may be time....^_^v

Tech forum people may want to delete the long post by flumom and put url in instead. The reason the black box is in the post is it came in as a link on that site as an ad. The original site has it in the metadata of the link I think. Just a thought

Thank you, Usk, THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!

It took me a while to de-bug FluMom's post - I really am a technophobe and I don't speak code - but I managed it.  (SMUG MOMENT OF TRIUMPH!)  It took well over an hour!  But I learned loads from the clean-up. For instance the < > symbol in the edit box displays the code of the post and copying a post across piecemeal can remove unwanted code - for those of us who can't tell the difference.

I am now going to study some of the code I uncovered and find out how much I can decipher.

Thank you again!
