Ok, I know I am old, and my eyesight is very poor, but for the life of me I cannot find the Compendium.  I know it is there. I know that because that is where you would find all of the completed entries. So whoever hid it from me please come forward so I can breath dragonfire on you!!

Or in the case of an old dragon just not seeing or understanding what he should do then please take him by the arm, or wing, if you prefer and not only point him in the right direction, but be by his side, leading him until he finds his treasure; which in this case is the Compendium.

if you look at the main leftmost sidebar (which switches btw between two menus when you click on The Santharian Dream Ellipsis), you'll see a whole bunch of icons for various parts of the compedium. but you will also see a little indescript white circle on the right hand side at the top below the rightmost vertex of the "The Santharian Dream" ellipsis, and there that little white button is the search button for the entire compedium.

Mmm, capher the easiest way I know is to...wait you do not see the old menus to the left of the screen like on the old board right?  The web, horses head, flower, ord, etc?  

Probably not or else you wouldn't have asked how to access the Compendium.  

Easiest thing I know is to go to the RP board, look to the left menu and click the link that says main site.  A new window will open and the old menus will be there.  Then just click the scroll.  

Probably this is the wrong way and I would like to know the right way, but it will work for now.

Yeah, are you sure that you enter the site properly, Capher? Like typing in www.santharia.com and click on "Enter"?  huh

*cough* Uhm, Mirmec, Capher has been on Santharia for years, I think he knows the search function. He just didn't find all the icons anymore.

But like Arti said, the easiest way would be to go to www.santharia.com and clicking enter (or the drawing at the top, that works as well)

By the way - whoever built the Search Function - kudos to you!!!  thumbup  thumbup thumbup

As a developer I've found it to be the most useful tool on the website.

oh sorry Irid, i know i seen him over on the RPG forum, just not here. i know when i first started reading Santharia i had a horrible time with seeing the entire screen and i wrote a series of notes to Artimidor about it. there never really was a solution, i think it has to do with the width of my computer screen, but Artimidor did say you can click on the golden claws above the forum to get the sidebars to appear (right or left claw, right or left sidebar). Anyway we have a bigger computer screen now so the problem is not so bad.

Ah, I see where I have been going wrong now. I have not been entering the site like I should have been.  I have been entering right to the dev board instead of going to the entrance board.  I was under the impression that once this new board was set up that the old one would be gone, but I see you just kind of integrated some of the old menus with this new one.

Thank you all for your replies and help.

@Gean, I am still flying around. I am glad to see you as well my friend.

@Art, I have been toying now for over a year or more about revising my novel.  I had a hard drive crash about a year ago and lost all of my data on the novel.  I thought that I could download the story from here and rework it. I can download it easy enough but I cannot do any revising; it will not let me.

I guess I will have to download the novel a chapter at a time, open a new window on Word, and retype the whole thing over with my new revisions.  I was just wondering if you could tell me or remember what setting we had as far as page size, text size, that sort of thing.

Also, when I finally do have a finished chapter do I put it in the Library thread or just send it to you?

actually there are alot of OCR software that probably could scan most of it into Word for you. Just go down to your local copy shop and see what they charge to scan per page?

or you could ask Artimidor if he could take your selection out and with his computer knowledge translate it back into Word for you. I had a similair problem like what you are describing several years ago and wen the scanning route and it worked out ok.

Hmmm... Can you be more precise about "it will not let me [revise the story]", Capher? I've checked myself now and downloaded the Prologue - it is a regular Word file that I can open and edit, no problem whatsoever. What kind of message do you receive and when? Can you edit, but not save? Have you unzipped the file properly first?

Chapters should be posted ideally in the Library, then people can read it and comment on it :) - BTW: As far as I remember your story deals with Sophronians as well, here we are currently revising the history, see here for details. Just to make sure you're aware that we're working on this part right now. We might also elaborate a proper Sophronian nomenclature scheme sooner or later.

Art, I could not edit, before. But now I can and save it.  So I guess that problem has been taken care of.

As far as the history of the Sophronians and their kingdom the Serpheloria I will check out what you and the others have decided.

If you recall I was the originator of the Sophronian tribe and its migration and history.

My novel(which would probably be a trilogy) is based upon the "old world" of Caelereth, before Santhros, it tries to explain the elven myth of the War of the Chosen, how humans became involved in the war, the prophecy of the Wizard of the White tower and its creation, and how the first Wizard of the White Tower came from the union of Saban and a Sophronian girl. It will also explain how the continent of Santharia was changed by the war; IE, how the Bay of Winds came into existence and other physical changes to the continent.  It also introduces for the first time in the history of Caelereth the shapeshifting dragon that is come to be known as Capher, White Wolf, and the Storyteller; depending upon who or what tribe of people you talk to.

So, I guess my novel would be somewhat a historical one, yet as you and others work on the history of Caelereth and change and revise it, perhaps my novel would not fit anymore into the scheme of things as it is written now. So I may have to rethink the whole thing.

As Dala did with her story and brought to life and made historical fact to Voldar and Katya I guess I was hoping to do the same with mine.  I am not too sure I can, though.

I think I am rambling now, so I will just shut up and I apologize to any who may have become offended.

Good to hear that your edit problem was only temporary. :)

Oh, and don't worry, Capher, we're not reinventing the wheel in regards of the Sophronians, we're just going to make things more precise, and ajust the dates somewhat so that things fit together better. We're also going to connect the Sophronians with the Avennorian tribe somewhat a bit later etc. Well, you'll see.

Its all copyrighted, and no, the only game plans we have are extremely long term and text based, i believe.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
