As a programmer, I like to keep things simple, is all I'm saying. I have enough languages to bothered with more.
Of course simplicity is always preferred in implementation but as far as possible not to the point of changing user requirements! Anyway, as a programmer all this configuration will probably take you at most 15 minutes, as nowadays I don't think any programmer can offord not to know some PHP or html or javascript! And learning the mathjax syntax would probably take anyone about some 30 minutes and I am being very generous here. This is just to say that the installation and use of mathjax is already aim to simplify things. It will only be a problem for one who does not have some programming skills. Here I was assuming it was the case of the management, and this is alright because if everyone could do their own programming, you would be out of work! :D
I am retired aka out of work. And if everyone could program, they'd make a hack job of it. Macro systems are much easier on my end anyways, if I'm too lazy to cut and paste. But I accept your suggestion for what it is.

Too much silly in the industry these days, anyway. No patience for it anymore. I do still carry a love of languages, nonetheless. Always fun to play with, to pass time, and perhaps a bit of wind. :lol:

You are a programmer as well, I take it?

Not in a professional capacity. When the need arise, I can find my way out of some problems with some patience and help from above.

But whatever the industry may be, I do find voluntary retirement an interesting concept in general! :D

I was the boss anyway, so retirement is just relaxing work, in a sense. No pressures.

This is not a suggestion, but an inquiry.

When I joined this forum I started a thread on, see texts in bold in quotation below.
Hobbes' Choice

I am so glad to have found this forum, and I will start a new thread right away, on How to prove God exists.

I will report back here if and when I have successfully opened my thread on How to prove God exists.

It seems though that my present status imposes upon my posts that they be first approved by moderators.

Anyway, let me see what will happen when I click on the submit button below.
I cannot find that thread.

Does anyone know whether it came out or not, and please give me the link.

Thanks in advance for your help...

Here ya go: https://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtop ... ts#p258630

Sorry, but that link does not lead to any thread on How to prove God exists.

So, at this point in time, I still have not seen my thread which was for me a way to find out whether the moderators here had allowed or dis-allowed my very first thread to come out.

Anyway, when I came back and started to post in the thread on "Prostitution and eternal values..." I have not met with any repression.

Thanks to the moderating powers that supervise posters here, I am happy that I have not been subjected to any suppression of posts from me that they had prevented from coming out.

By way of a suggestion: If the powers that manage things here, please if you feel that a post should not come out or should be deleted, please just leave the post already out, or not yet out, but for the post box for it to occupy, leave it empty: but with the message from you, dear moderators here, to the following effect:

"Post returned to author for revising."

That should get honest posters who are into productive contributions, to revise their repressed posts as to make them fit for coming out, with just the substance of their ideas without the objectionable say icing or garnish, is that okay?

Dear Yrreg, there is a clear-cut way of checking for your first post.

Click on the down-pointing triangle beside your username on the top of any page when you are logged on the Forums. A drop-down list will appear with three choices.

Click on the first (top) choice, "User control panel".

Click on "user's posts".

All your posts you've ever submitted to this forum and are now permanently present on it, will appear. Currently you have 18 posts, as is also indicated by the counter beside or behind your name on every post.

You can view all your posts, and decide whehter your first published post was allowed or not.

By the way: for this exercise, posts are posts are posts; they can be posts you affixed to an already existing thread, or they can be first posts (opening posts) in a thread.

I hope this helps.

If you don't see your opening post, you can also insert it now, by starting a new thread, and see what happens. If you have preserved a copy in your files you can cut-and-paste, if not, then you can compose the opening post again and post it.
