    Add \
     on a line before any code and again on a line by itself after any code to preserve formatting.

    It's a comment that of your 60 questions there are still 46 of them that you have NOT marked ANSWERED.

    Many/most volunteers try to find unanswered questions to help with. It is very frustrating to start reading a long post that you want to help with only to find out that the people responding appear to have answered the question except the person asking the question never marked it as ANSWERED.

    That wastes everyones time that could be spent helping people that actually have unanswered questions.

    The other problem is that anyone with the same problem may not find the answer they want because they find your questions and see some of the answers but because you didn't actually mark the question ANSWERED they don't think it can help them. That wastes their time.

    Please take the time to revisit your 46 unresolved questions and mark them ANSWERED as appropriate. You can find them by using the 'Your Control Panel' link at the top right of the page.

    When you open your control panel there is now a link at the top right 'Your Questions'.

    That will display all of your unresolved questions.

    Thanks. But if you are still needing answers to those old questions you need to add another reply to them to bump them to the top of the list so people will see them. No one will notice an unaswered thread that is three years old.

    You need to search for your userid 731498

    You can see that as the default if you click on "search for all user messages" from your control panel.
