Re: New Member - new to Olympus

Same course as myself - Nikon got too heavy and I needed a lighter travel kit that was still weather resistant. I worked up slowly to the Mk.2 via the original E-M5 then an E-M1 but wouldn't go back to an optical finder now - the electronic finder gives a true pre-view of the final image. I found several posts on here that have helped a lot in understanding how to set up the Mk.2, so hope you will do as well.

Re: New Member - new to Olympus

Click User Control Panel on the top menu

Click Edit Signature on the left

Type in what you want - active links need to be in [ url ] ... [ /url ] type tags You can insert them with the post editor just the same as any links

Regards
Andy

Re: New Member - new to Olympus

Hi Chris

I'm relatively new to the admin role on this site and having poked around the settings I can see that I can set it for you

However... some of the settings are related to post count to stop people just posting spam links and I wonder if this is one and as you have reached with that last post the magic number of 6 I would suggest looking again

If still no luck I will do it for you and ask Ian offline where that setting is

Regards
Andy
