About tyabblemons

  1. Yes, easy, go to settings on your dashboard and check the box for 'Show post excerpt'. Hope that helps
  2. I believe there is an outage at the moment. I have problems too. I have recently heard from the team and they are working on the issue. Hope it won't be long.
  3. Picture size management is surely needed. My workaround is to email the pics from my phone or tablet to my Evernote email account. It lets me choose the size to send, and I choose medium. It seems to fit well on web pages and into emails. I yearn for greater control, and would like to just grab the corner to reduce a picture size. And just because, would really like word-wrap as well. Formatting is important, especially if you publish your Evernote notes on a blog like postach.io.
  4. I would advise any user who encounters any problems with postach.io to simply click the help button at the bottom right of the postach.io dashboard screen. I have found the support team to be very responsive - although they are opposite time zone to Australia. I wouldn't have had such success with my postach.io blogs if the support team weren't as good as they are. No, I don't work for them, but I am a fan
  5. Tyabblemons: everything on that blog of yours was done via postach.io? Impressive. Gavin: Postach.io just plain won't work for me. I tried to sync yesterday but it still doesn't wanna work after many hours .. it says no posts yet with a sadface. and, at the risk of sounding like THE ultimate nimrod of the century, how do i log into Postachio? there's no link for that (General question to all now) How can I quickly go to non-edit mode using a keyboard shortcut (from edit mode) (in the web app version of EN)? i know i can click to another note with my mouse but i'm keyboard oriented that's why i'm asking. thank you Thanks for the great feedback. Yes, everything is done with postach.io. Of course the comments are hosted by Disqus, but they're easy to set up on the blog. I've found new ways to push the platform - and I openly abuse it. I try to break it! I give the team reason to pause, sometimes, I think. I use it in an unusual way for live fire blogs, for wildfires here in Australia. These must run in real-time, and the only platforms that let me do this are Evernote and postach.io.
  6. Yes, that's a problem! I'll see if I can get one of the postach.io team to have a look at the thread. Good luck.
  7. I will admit, it took me all my patience to set it up. Once you've done it once, you find it's actually pretty easy - but there are some third party sites you need to register with, and this can be tedious. I promise the result is worth it, as you experience control over your blog like you've never had before. I'm running 3 blogs. At the moment, it's free, but soon we'll have to pay (for more than one) in order for postach.io to make money - hence the email about what to charge. Of my three blogs, one is my own personal blog, one is the website for a wildlife conservation group, and another is a 'business' website - I managed to break all the rules and bend it to host a very nice business site using postach.io and Evernote. I haven't paid a cent for web hosting. On the postach.io page, there's a question mark in the bottom right corner (when you log in - you'll have to sort out that password problem using the recovery options). Click on the question mark, and the guys will respond pretty quickly if it's during their daytime. They even responded to me in their pyjamas just before getting into bed! (Don't ask me how I know that...) They are approachable, and they want to help you set it up and for you to be happy with your blog, because frankly, you're their best ad. The setup process is being streamlined as we speak. I was going to write a 'how to' blog about setting it up, since I've done three blogs now. They've advised me to hold off for a moment. In its current form it takes a lot of patience, but the end result is definitely worth it. It's not a Google product - it has to be installed with some flair! If you get really stuck and just can't get it set up, post here and I'll talk you though as best I can. I'm a big fan of postach.io. I'm disappointed that you had trouble with it. Would love to see you as happy with it as I am.
  8. Gazumped, I thoroughly agree with your taking the time to set up postach.io. I have just set it up myself, and will admit it did take me a while to get the comments and everything working. You get the code for your comments from your disqus setup. Set your theme on your postach.io blog first, and then insert the source code for disqus on the postach.io dashboard. A tiny bit of HTML knowledge will help you, or the support team from postach.io - they are awesome. You can also insert Google Analytics at this time, which is worth the effort. The finished product is really worth it. I chose a very simple theme to compliment Evernote - you can check it out by pasting this link into your browser: tyabblemons.postach.io My domain should be linked to it in just a couple of hours time (fingers crossed). Good luck, I'm sure you'll love it when you finish this rather steep learning curve. It's worth it. Regards, Brad.
  9. Off topic, but I can highly recommend postach.io for blogging straight out of Evernote. I've just set it up myself and am very pleased with the end result. Supports comments and Google Analytics. I use a great program for Windows to resize pics - Paint.net. Fiddly to download, but free - it's a poor man's photoshop, and very good for adjusting levels as well. Regards, Brad.
  10. Evernote is a work in progress, and I actually like that about it. You blew me away because I just haven't been using keyboard shortcuts at all much, and I've realised I've been denying myself the use of a lot of easy functions. D'oh! My goodness, postach.io really works! Took a little bit of setting up, but I've got it working and I like it very much. All the third part apps are a bit to manage, but I very much see the advantages of setting them up. Having some trouble with disqus - it's late, and I'll look at it again tomorrow. I really do appreciate the great tips and this wonderful new toy that I have to play with Brad
  11. Find the keyboard shortcut, Brad. Now why didn't I think of that?
  12. Thank you both very much! Grumpy, I should have listed my wishlist in the post. It was lazy of me to just link my note. Thank-you for cleaning up. Lesson learned. Forever, what an amazing link! I'll spend the morning exploring Pstach.io, but it looks to me like you've found just the thing I needed. Clever people have been there before me I'm very grateful for the interest you took in my post, and I thank you for responding. Grumpy, I should have mentioned, I'm running the Windows7 client. Evernote is Evernote - it just runs on everything, and it's easy to forget. I'm very much an amateur in blogging, but the rigid disciplines of most blogging platforms annoy me. I can do whatever I want with Evernote, like even editing the post after it's published. And the features just keep coming. I'd pay my 5 bucks a month just to keep the R&D team ticking over - they do an amazing job. I'll admit I haven't crawled the forum here before, but have found so many interesting posts that I'm sure to hang around. Hope to see you both around. Thanks again for reading and responding
  13. Er... This might seem weird. I'm new here, never posted before. But I wanted to share my wishlist of desired features, other than on Twitter. Please see my post here: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s121/sh/69912bfe-7304-41ce-9cef-d5f47fa2178b/1882a20f0968e686e5f3825e0ec537b8?noteKey=1882a20f0968e686e5f3825e0ec537b8&noteGuid=69912bfe-7304-41ce-9cef-d5f47fa2178b Thanks very much for reading Is it okay if I point out that I think that we people who use Evernote have a completely unfair advantage over the rest of the world, because our lives are all sorted, stored and searchable? Regards, Brad.
