  • Sources not postable on FR

    Is there a list of sites that we are not supposed to post from on FR? Usually if I try to post something from a restricted source, it prevents me from doing so immediately. I just posted something from USA Today that was removed. Is USA one of those sources that we may not post from? It was a story on trucking. Also, we used to get something from the mod citing our offense. That doesn't seem to happen any longer. Thanks

    About 10 minutes ago I posted what I thought was an interesting article about Hillary voters who have switched over to Trump. It got pulled almost immediately. What went wrong? The excerpt didn't seem overly long. Is Yahoo now banned on FR? I'd sure like to know what I did wrong so as not to make the same error again.

    Yes, I am logged in. Normally on iPad I can finger scroll up the writing box to see what I am writing as I write it. Now, for the past two days I cannot see what I am writing. I don't believe this is an FR issue, as it is happening on text conversations with otherse. As with Free Republic, I have to click the button to lower the keyboardscreeni order to see what I am writing. Editing is impossible. Anyone have any help?

    This is my second posting, for anyone who may have missed it the first time. Bookmark the website located at the link. Copy the article you want to post and paste it in the top box located at the linked website. Press convert, then copy the converted text and paste it into the Free Republic "Body of Thread" box. Try it a few times. It's basically self-explanatory and very easy.

    I don't know if this has impacted anybody else, but in recent weeks, I've noticed that HTML special characters are not rendering properly in HTML posts. For example, the character “ is rendering as “, the character ” is rendering as ”, and so on. A screenshot of a typical thread is here: Needless to say, that is really irritating. There is a workaround for this: replace these special characters with their corresponding HTML codes. The ones that FR is currently having problems with are as follows: ‘ "left single quote" &lsquo; ’ "right single quote" &rsquo; “ "left double...

    Like many others here, I don't have cable. So I rely on FR for unfiltered breaking news. And there where quite a few good and informative threads last night about the Paris attacks. Thanks to all the posters for that! Unfortunately, those threads were also peppered with distracting and silly attempts at humor. So here's my humble request. When the news is breaking - and serious - can we stay on-topic and avoid posting distractions?

I went to the Opera settings, but I could not find a way to correct this. Sorry, I am not tech savvy, and I would appreciate advice from someone who is.

    Western Springs and La Grange members of an anti-gun violence group are asking area businesses to post signs depicting No Guns Allowed. A new state law allows residents to carry concealed weapons, pending approval of permit applications through the Illinois State Police. The first such permits are expected to be issued beginning March 1. I prefer to shop in places where I feel safe, said Katherine Mudd, a Western Springs member of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. She has children, ages 7 and 9, and has been handing out postcards to area businesses.

    Is is possible to import a PDF file to the "Body of Thread" text box when posting an article? How would it be done? Is the a html string to use(?), like when posting a photograph from a photo storage site, or something? I have many PDF files of articles which I have written or edited, and am wondering if they can be posted without converting them to something else. Thanks so much

    I would like to enlist the knowledge of my fellow freepers. My local rag the Journal News who doesnt even allow excerpts to be posted has just changed their comments section to only allow Facebook postings. They give some lame excuse about some people are upset at the postings and it is not fair it is anonymous. Since you have to sign up with a valid e-mail address they are not really anonymous. Besides the attempt to stifle dissent through intimidation why would they do this? Is there something I am missing? Note this paper published the names and addresses...

    I'm having trouble finding any FR posting guidelines showing which sites may be excerpted, which are link-only and so on. I would have thought adding a link to that information on the page that appears when you hit "Post" would be a no-brainer, but I sure don't see anything like that. I've seen people referencing such guidelines quite a bit, but I've never found 'em.
