Question LQ Tags


Hi,

I searched the forum for "LQ tags" but it only searched for "tags" instead [I presume it not uses search pattern with only 2 chars] and looked into the FAQ but not found the solution...
I also browsed the usercp, but to no avail.

I see on the right in the main menu the entry "LQ Tags" (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/lqtags.php) and I see that most of you have edited their LQ tags, mine still says the generic "Linux" and I wanted that to change to Slackware, but how?

Could be that I missed the detail somehow, though...

You tag posts, with whatever you want. Don't worry too much about it.

However, you can specify your distro through your user CP. <-- is that what you're really asking?

Yes, that was what I was really trying to ask, sorre me is no native tongue and especially with more complex or more tzechnical stuff I have issues at times to get it to you in English...

*tries to browse the user CP again*

Anyway, I was logged out of LQ... was that due to a timeout, or because my IP changed?
Is it possible to stay logged into LQ and not be logged out at times?

Sorry, that would be "My LQ" - it changed a few years back to help people figure out what it was.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...do=editprofile

when you use the ______________________ it makes what is after it harder to see because my brain thinks it's a signature.

Next time just use white space.

On logging out: make sure the "remember me" box is ticked, then a cookie will be set to help LQ remember you.

I guess, you don't mean 'Tag' but the penguin logo ?

Firefox > > URL = about:config

general.useragent.extra.firefox Slackware/Firefox/<version>

I currently run Seamonkey, so it's
general.useragent.extra.seamonkey Slackware/SeaMonkey/2.0.5
instead,
now I did change it but it is still the same...

I think it works the same with FF or SM, yes?


//EDIT
I see now, it not changes the value for the OLD posts on here, but changes them for the NEW posts...

At least prior this post editing I saw the Slackware icon...
Post this edit the icon now is gone... :?

Your Slackware icon works fine. I believe that the icon will show (and keep) the relevant icon for the machine you are posting from at that time and it stores the record.
