Help with Printing

There is a 'Print only details' file already set up on this site so when you press the print command on your computer you should only get the header and the walks details printed.
There seems to be a problem with the way certain browsers see the code and may print out the whole page differently. It is recommended that you select the 'Print Preview' option first to see what is going to be printed before committing your computer to actually printing.
You can then select the pages that you require.



Links


There are a few not so obvious links that can help you enjoy the experience a little more.


The '  This Month  ' button on the Home page is a quick and useful way if you want to see what walks are available for the current month. Once at the current month you have instant access to the rest of the year so you can now view all the year's months.


The '  Select a Month  ' button does exactly the same as the '  This Month  ' button but starts you off at January, so of it's January now, both buttons will show January. Sounds obvious and it is when yo think about it.


 

What is a TAB


A Tab creates another browser page that sits alongside (on top) of the original page you were viewing. Look carefully near the top of the page and you should see that when you click on a SK link that Notts Guided Walks page is still accessible. (it sits behind the map site with its own TAB) So when you have finished looking at the meeting point location you can either click the Notts Guided Walks TAB and keep also the Map open on its TAB in the background (so you can flick between the two sites or) close either site by clicking its "+" and the other site will appear on its own.


Those small pictures!

If there are small images on a page, try hovering your mouse pointer over the image. If a small magnifying glass appears instead of a normal mouse pointer you can click the actual picture to get a larger, more detailed view of that image. The mouse pointer should now be a hand with a pointing finger,(depending on the browser).
To reduce the image down to its original size just click the large image again.
