How To Do It!

Part of the fun of participating in Atheist Nexus is writing posts, blogs and comments, sharing our experiences and what we've read and seen elsewhere on the internet.  The problem comes in that not all of us know our way around the mechanics of manipulating an editing box to get a desired result, or using html tricks to format text in a certain way to get a certain look.

In this group, I hope to give some basic instruction in how to do things like embedding a link in text, inserting a picture or a video, or making other modifications to our contributions to Atheist Nexus.  I also invite others who very likely know far more about html code than I do to offer their tricks of the trade.

The point of all this is to empower anyone who is interested in doing MORE with Atheist Nexus.  I hope this helps, that's all.

I made the decision last winter that I was somehow going to leave sticky, sluggish, Windows & Microsoft to their viruses, spyware, or whatever else turns them on for charging us more to get rid…Continue

You see them all over - those blue letters, sometimes underlined, which allow you to reference another location on Atheist Nexus or elsewhere in internet.  It makes it a lot easier to refer to…Continue

As it turns out, inserting a video from YouTube or elsewhere isn't all that hard.  A great number of videos posted to the internet, especially from public news sources or places like YouTube will…Continue

I am now officially on the Ubuntu OS!

I finally quit facebook a few days ago, but I was still curious about the question.

When I click the like button, it registers under my likes on my page here. We can check each others likes by visiting each others home page. Fakebook has it's own separate like button which I'll have no part of. My $0.01 as far as I'm understanding it.....

Maybe someone who's connected their Atheist Nexus account to their Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, or Windows Live account (Settings > Connections) could tell us whether the "Like" button here has any effect there.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 8, 2014 at 3:35pm

Being that I'm not on Facebook, I have no idea as regards THEM.  I think the LIKE button on our posts, pages and other locations is local to Atheist Nexus and does NOT impact subscriptions to other media.

At least I THINK that's the case.  If someone knows otherwise, please feel free to put your $0.02 in.

Loren, I've been told that the "Like" box (with the heart) is connected to Facebook.  However, I click on "like" quite a bit on Atheist Nexus and I don't see any indication of them on my Facebook page.  What's the real skinny?

Comment by Patricia on April 3, 2014 at 6:02pm

Hope I'm helping you start with some groups so you don't have to search absolutely everything.

.....And Loren is a question?, he's the go to guy!

Your blog is yours, Deidre.  As for this group, I created it so that people who aren't quite computer-savvy could figure out how to do basic stuff, like links and inserting pix and video.  As always, if you have ANY questions, please ask!

That's why I put it here, Kent.  You are very welcome.
