Is it possible to change the colour or thickness of a horizontal line? It hardly shows up on my grey background.

I added some custom CSS to your Preferences page and then I added corresponding code to your HR tags in the Source View of your page. I set the line height to 5. You can make adjustments as needed by viewing the source.

Susan, in the Privacy Concerns section at the bottom of your home page, you mention, "Your e-address is not seen by anyone unless you want it to be seen," and "Unless you explicitly grant your permission, your e-address and contact info is not visible to our classmates." I don't believe it is possible for a classmate to grant permission for either their email, street address, or phone number to be visible to anyone. I believe this is a built-in security feature by default and cannot be altered by a classmate. If I'm right, you may wish to consider altering these two sentences. Caveat: of course, administrators may view the email, street address, and phone number, but this does not require the permission of the classmate. It's a built-in feature of the administrative set-up.

Thanks for the heads up. That announcement has not been updated in over 6 yrs when the site was first built. I have removed the whole privacy section and will come up with something different.

We have a similar privacy message, and the wording refers to an added profile Question/Answer box labeled "Viewable Contact Information" with a hint that it's optional and can only be seen by logged in and verified web site members. Quite a few classmates have duplicated their email address, phone numbers, and street address there, and it's been handy for others who are traveling and stopped to touch base.

Scott - can I choose to single space when I hit Return ? Currently, I get double spacing whenever I hit Return. I don’t seem to have an option.

Choosing single space is easy.

In the editor, on the third row down, click on "Format," the second box in. For double spacing, click on "Normal," the first choice in the column. For single spacing, click on "Normal (DIV)," the last choice in the column.

There's another way to get single space when pressing "return".
Press the SHIFT key and then RETURN. AKA SHIFT+RETURN

Source looks like this- first is return+shift, second is "div"

Jack is right, Paula. I've used this on my sites for years. It is now a habit.

SHIFT+RETURN Smile

Hi Scott Moore. I agree your step works. Call me lazy... I prefer not to reach for the mouse. Wink

Gwen,

Actually, you can be the laziest by clicking on "Normal (DIV)." Click on it once and you have single spacing for everything on the page that follows. I wish "Normal (DIV") was the default setting instead of "Normal." Single spacing is much more common than double spacing, especially for text.

Maybe this will help explain the reason for the default "double space". It is related to the difference between html display vs "typing". When a line exceeds the width, one just keeps on typing and the text "wraps". On a typewriter, the "return" key is used. The "double" space is meant to separate paragraphs (noted as < p > in html>, although some don't use that type of style.

It's easy to switch back and forth though, so pick whatever works.

One could also redefine the "spacing" used for "p" to be single space in terms of how it looks (uses CSS style).
