I have got my editorial powers back which means I should be able to start updating the site. The Syndication buttons are back in your profiles and I have set them for "allow to syndicate" this is about getting your reviews and features onto the IPMS site. My question is what do you see? I.E. Do you see anything against your list of Reviews/Features such as a spin box with the different sites or some such like contraption? When this was set before I could see those spin boxes, but I can't now.

OK that completely confused me, as my profile on the I.P.M.S site looked the same as it did before. But, i looked on my profile on the Aeroscale site and there is the spin button next to my reviews.
When i press the button to syndicate the review to I.P.M.S site i get another spin button with this message -
Syndicate this article. Select the proper section...


Albatros D.III, Weekend Edition
Syndicate this article on: Please Select ,Aircraft Armour & AFVs Figures Ships Sci-Fi Automobiles Dioramas

So what do i press :-) .
Andy
Edit - Done it. On the next drop down box i got i just left it on "Please select" and pressed submit. Seems to have worked LOL.

Yep it worked Andy, the review has been added in the review section. After selecting "IPMS site" the next spin button is to have placed in the correct area, I.E. Aircraft. That's good as it means that I can allow you to syndicate and you can sydicate you stuff to here I guess Nige will be able to do the same. So can you syndicate all your reviews to the IPMS site please Andy and Nige. If you can do one every 3-4 days or longer and lias between each other, your reviews will have "time" on the front page. Andy can you have a go at syndicating your F-86 Photo Feature, so I can check what happens.
I don't have the spin buttons so my stuff is still in limbo at the mo

It has gone into the feature section, but not on the main page.

P.S Nige is in Normandy until Wednesday, no doubt recreating the D/ Day landings on his own :-).

Hi Mal.
Im not sure what you mean by Spin buttons exactly.
What I have is a box by each article with a drop down menu,which only has IPMS UK in it,and a button to "submit".
Then I get the option to sumit it to the relevent section,,Armour,Dio's etc,on the next page and another "submit" button.
Hope this helps. We can have a chat about this at Doncaster :-)

OK now I get it, I had allowed myself to syndicate but I have to go to my account page, on the site where the features/reviews are hosted, to see the spin button to syndicate stuff to here. Makes perfect sense
