NB. Our editing forms for adding items to Virtual Lancaster do not yet display as well as we'd wish in some browsers. If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your browser you may find it easier to switch to Chrome or current Firefox before adding content.
If that's not an option for you, you can still go ahead successfully, just please read this very brief and simple advice first.

When you are editing your item in the field of the form titled 'Body':

  • When addling links or email addresses, please do not use the hyperlink icon above the field to hyperlink them. Clicking this icon may freeze your window. You would have to close it and start over again.  To avoid this, simply write / copy in your URLs as ordinary text. Our moderators will take care of any required hyperlinking for you.
  • When you click into the 'Body' field your cursor may become 'drag-and-drop' (cross-shaped).  If so, click a second time into the 'Body' field to change your cursor into a text cursor (I - shaped). Then you can go ahead. We apologise for the clunkiness of that field in some versions of IE.

We are working to correct these issues as soon as possible. In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your spirit of can-do.
