HI Moderator,

I have a suggestion for this site. I feel the white back ground u have given for this site is a bit distracting, need to concentrate more. I think if u can give some cool colours and any other colour which hold our attention, it will be great.
Let me think if i hav any more suggestion , i will post

thanks

I believe Rilke's work is still under copyright, so we can't place it on the site. If you prove us differently we'll be happy to add him. I love his im westen nichts neues, but haven't read much of his poetry. Anything particular you can recommend?

One can have colors if one wants by using the html tags. Look at the source of this page to see how it is done.

Hugh, that's ok....it's BACKGROUND colors I object to !

Also, since I'm on here at work, it's good to have a site that looks business-like

I don't quite like the way the software counts the number of times one has edited. I edit a lot to remove typos and improve my language.

Ah! But if it must, it must.

I would like to use indentation without too much technical input on my part so I could experiment with spacing in my poems again. I gave them up when I started posting to the forum because the html notation was too cumbersome for my sensibilities.

Looks like 'someone' neglected to turn off the blue text color tag.

Blue On Yellow Test

Oops, that's green on white - weird. Needs more experimentation.

Testing Pre tag for indents:



When the lord of the manor's factotum
Was kicked by a mule in the scrotum,
His words of abuse
Were rather profuse,
But decorum forbids me to quote 'em.



Yeah, that works. Just put < pre > before the text, then < / pre > after the text to preserve the 'preformatted' text. Ditch the spaces in the pre tags for it to work correctly when you do try it yourself.

The mule will return. It will, however, take a bit of time to find him again!

Dunno, but I will check around the Phorum pages to see what I can find.

[phorum.org] />
I see they have a Discussion section where the question could be posed as well.

Looking at the Source of this page, I see commands such as,

"textarea
{
background-color: White;
color: Black;"

These probably set the page requirements, but I will have to check further.

When Peter gets weary and such, he
Withdraws, but he still keeps in touch; we
Can listen today
And still hear him say,
"I love E-mule so muchly, so muchly."

Reading the posts on the Phorum forum, it looks like there is a template file (.tpl) that controls the background color, not accessible to ussuns, that is.

Still, we have a lot more toys with this version than the last one. I have not set up a login account yet, so I don't know if the 'new' flags on unread messages is gone or not. Perhaps someone who logs in knows?

I definitely think the default after posting should return one to the 'message list' page (used to be goto top), but I don't know how others feel about it.

Do not go gentle into that good night
by Unknown Author

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, less, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

This poem is by Thomas Dylan..just so you know...

Katherine, maybe this site has what you are looking for:

[www.rilke.de] />
Rilke's work is already in public domain (he died in 1926), but the English translations are probably not. Nevertheless I found this site through google:

[www.geocities.com] />
It has many translations by different translators (Bly and Mitchell included).

Hth,
V.

Checking the Phorum phorum, it looks like there is a section in the site's template that needs to be included:

< quote >

postform.tpl

email
reply} checked="checked" {/IF} /> {LANG->EmailReplies}


don't forget the tr above and below it.
