You can also ask Andrew to delete the entry.

@agam: Just ask us when you want an entry to be changed.

No, he can't (presently). As DarkShadow said, as a "R0" he don't have this "Edit this entry" button :wink:

BTW: Andrew deleted the entries.

I'd start with the forums and see what response you get. We have a lot of programs that got added to the database and never got the votes to go live. If the program doesn't resonate with the membership, it's a lot of extra effort that doesn't pay off. That said, a good entry can sometimes be a strong draw to get members to try it out, but that seems in the minority.

Re: Quick note on new entries keywords

#22 Post by Midas » Sat Jul 05, 2014 3:53 pm

I think this ought to be stated: when posting new entries to TPFC database, should the program have a name composed of recognizable multiple words (either joined or separated), that name should also be inserted in the "keywords" field with words separated by "%20" (without quotes) in order to enhance searching.

E.g., "NexusImage" should be entered as "nexus%20image".

This workaround was found following Specular's comment at http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.p ... mment26145.

We are a registered user for at least a month and are logged in. However, I do not see "Add Entry" at all. What gives?

How is it you were a registered user for a month and are logged in if that's your first post?

I'm assuming you're windsolutions? Quick note that it's not OK to have two logins. Either way I'll forward this over to Andrew.

@abc: You are unable to add private entries because your user account was flagged by a mod. I have unflagged you, so you should be able to add private entries now.

After you have logged in, you will see something like Username R0 [Add Entry/Logout] at the top-right corner of the TPFC web page.
Pls, is this page up to date ?
I don't see any " R0 [Add Entry/Logout] " ?
Thanks

Like vmars316, I don't see "R0 +Add Entry Logout": all I see is "R0 Logout".

Also like vmars316, I had wondered "Is this page up to date?": seeing no "Add Entry" link, I assumed it wasn't.
So, without any apparent access to add to the private database, I have been limited to just suggesting programs in three recent posts.
