1. go to the "about us" page (or whatever page you want to copy)
2. take your cursor and point it in the window at the top of the screen, where it says the address, ( URL) - the cursor will change from an arrow to something that looks like a capital "I"
3. click your left mouse button - the URL will turn BLUE
4. click CTRL-C (hold down the ctrl button and click "c" at the same time. This will copy the URL to your clipboard.
5. go to the member's page where you want to paste the URL
6. click ctrl-v (ctrl button and "v" at the same time) this will paste the URL on their page. It might show up as a different color than any regular typing

In Windows, ctrl-c always means COPY TO THE CLIPBOARD and ctrl-v means PASTE FROM THE CLIPBOARD. Once you copy something to the clipboard, it stays there until you copy over it, so if you are welcoming many members at the same time, you only have to copy the "about us" page once before you start welcoming. I like the "about us" page, because it includes the "new member guide" and also some other interesting stuff like what the name "TuDiabetes" means and other FAQs (frequently asked questions)

It's also nice to insert links to various Groups that people might be interested in, such as the Parents of Kids with type1, if you see the new member is a parent, etc.

if you want to practice by sending me a link to the "about us" page, or any other page, go right ahead, aand I'll tell you if it came out. you can also copy URLs of other places (not just TuDiabetes pages) on the Internet and paste them

I really don't know what a clipboard is but I do know that if tou go to the top of your page after tou go to About us and click on the very top of your page where it says http/aboutus/notes or something like that it will go into your computer and when you welcome someone just hit ctrl and v and it will copy what you clicked on. But when you click on that link (you must go to the top of your page and click on "about us' then it will take you to that site then hold your ctrl button down and hit " first to copy it then when you go to a new members page after I welcome them i skip to another paragraph and tell them here's a link to learn more about us and click on it.

What I meant was just go back on my pages and Marie's instructions were there! Now I know I just comfused the hell out of you b/c my instruction giving really sucks so it's always the best to get a retired teacher to tell you how to do it. That's Marie!

Hope your mom isn't missing your dad too bad! I know sheis missing him I mean heck look how long they were together! My grandmother was in a fog for about a year after my grandfather passed. My DAD? When my mom passed it only took him about 6 months to move his wife into my mother's house! Sound like a little resentment? Well there is!c"

Than you, Bobtown is in Greene County, PA in the southwestern corner. I am about 4 miles from the West Virginia border. I use to be a photojournalist @ WVU..."Let's go Mountaineers" lol

Thanks for the comment, but my friend does not have a computer, nor the knowledge of what to do with one. He is in his 40s and has a cell phone, which I think might be the best way to communcate with him if no one lives close who can speak Spanish to him about diabetes. I am hoping to connect him with someone who lives close.

well, yes, it did come down - I'm pretty frustrated w/ my mother now. sorry, but I think if you need a walker to walk down the hall, you should not be driving. oh, well, I'm doing some therapeutic sewing now. I'm in this group called the Fairgrounds Quilters and we make lap quilts for wounded soilders of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. We are part of the Quilts of Valor National Foundation. We meet at the NJ State Fair, about 5 minutes from my house.

It's very nice to welcome new members with a link to either the "About US" page or the "New Member Guide" - do you know how to copy a link? I'm sure you've seen tons of members here inserting links with their comments.

Tell you what go back on my comments and go to where Marie taught me how to do it and WRITE IT DOWN (that's what I had to do and got my notebook right by the computer) That way I won't make a mistake and you got it from the one who taught me or if you want I can go over my peice of paper here and do it! Which way do you want to go?
At 12:11pm on April 28, 2010, Doris D said…
Sounds like your doing really good! Marie taught me how to copy and paste yesterday (I told everyone here that my kids learned it in the 5th grade and here I was learning it now HA!) but now I can post up a link to help the newbie's out!

thank you so much for the info! my sister had her two boys at Lankenau. I see they have a educational program there, which I think is just the ticket. I'm grateful for my friends at TuDiabetes for the quick responses! btw, I am friends with Denise the quilter here. I'm surprised there aren't more quilters!

Thanks for the welcome! Thusfar, I've received some warm, and humourous, welcome greetings. I look forward to what lies ahead. My days will soon involve a CGM (Medtronic) and I'm looking forward to the next step in my diabetes management. Thanks, Jim
