DEADAHEAD---I NEED TO KNOW!!! HOW DO YOU INSERT MULTIPLE FOLKS' QUOTES INTO ONE POST!


Some forums support that automatically, this one requires the manual approach. I hit Quote and grab what I need and copy it to the clipboard, then hit back in the browser and Quote the next one, paste my clipboard, and if I need to do it more than that, repeat process until done. I also trim people's quotes down as short as possible to get the major point as the quote's focus, removing the excess stuff. Makes for an easier read, less reading, more pointed. Now ya know Enjoy.

that previous post of mine is a link from archive, of a GD show so I think it's a problem with the site rather then anyone blocking our posts. a couple weeks ago the moderator even said they were having some problems after upgrading the server....


Yes, I see that link you had for archive.org is the soundboard for Grateful Dead Live at Winterland Arena on 1974-02-24. The archive.org URL contains no odd characters that would make the forums fail to render the post that contain that URL, so it had to have been entered into the banned URL list for some reason. Perhaps there was some trash talking about that show or the band members in relation to that show. Who knows... I disagree that posts with these URLs are failing to display due to a code problem, it is by all appearances entirely intentional. The fact is that Phil and his people have been censoring here on Furthur and on their TC facebook page. For example, taper.tsquare posted on TC's FB politely that he needed info on his tickets and they removed his post because it quite simply, made them look unprofessional in the first place and they obviously didn't like that.

I must be confused. Deadahead - I thought you managed/owned/moderated the TL site and forum. I never thought the TLanding site or forum was controlled by Phil. I thought it was a fan created site.


I am a fan of the Dead and their members and I am a member at TL.com, which is by all descriptions a site for the discussion of Phil's TC venue. And you are correct, Phil has nothing to do with it. It might be a fan site on one hand, but on the other hand, discussion of TC can be critical which is not something you see on a purely fan site.

For whatever reason, the links I posted for Rio Carnaval also made the entire post disappear. I think the problem is systemic, and not directed toward any particular links.

Facebook was not letting Wavy Gravy be Wavy Gravy as his user name - they said it was made up and not his real name! I think he got it straightened out...

you actually can't post any links from archive amongst other links that have no reason to be banned ...... just an observation, not trying to start trouble

and they have no reason to not let you post pictures off your hard drive so there does appear to be some problem with the site....

Yes there may be some other unrelated problems due to recent upgrades they have made, but that is not related to the URL/content filtering that is going on here. I have made about all the points I'd like to make to affirm that there is some censorship going down here at the Furthur forums, thinking otherwise is just harmless wishful thinking by loving phans and nothing more. These filtered URLs are not a coincidence and it is a feature of this Kunena forum extension for Joomla to be able to block/filter content as needed. There is also a post that documents the FB censorship over at TL.com's Terrapin Crossroads Discussions forum. Thank you...

word thanks for the help deadahead im trying to learn this stuff being a new boarder and all... And ya i know about the censoring the terrapin crossroads facebook.... I was having one hell of a time trying to figure out the ticket fiasco, but was not being an asshole... a lot of people were really really rude and those are the type of people who Phil and fam dont want there.... But im definitly not saying that the censorship is cool
