RULES OF THE LATIN BOARD

Postby benissimus » Wed Jan 14, 2004 8:45 am

Welcome to the Latin Forum :D

This forum is here to provide help to those in the process of learning Latin, and also to discuss topics specifically geared towards Latin and Rome no matter what your level of education or knowledge of Latin. Post as much as you like or just lurk around, but please do make your posts meaningful. If you feel you can help, then please do offer your advice to others. Please be considerate and respectful. Please familiarize yourself with the rules of whichever forum you may post in.

On none of these forums may you post homework exercises or assigned translations and ask for the answers. Participants in the forum are encouraged to help others and ask for help, but everyone is expected to show the consideration to put some effort into their own work instead of dumping it on others, especially with first-time posters. Post your own efforts along with your assignments, explain your difficulties, or do not ask for help at all, unless you have a valid reason. We do sometimes offer free translations for personal purposes, but it is completely up to the posters whether they want to answer the requests. This is not a free translation website.

If you wish to introduce yourself, please do so on the Open Board, where you will be warmly received. Make sure to say "Salvete" and not just "Salve", so you greet us all!

If you do not know how to use this forum, visit the FAQ. If you need a moderator to delete one of your posts, just leave a note in the message body or send a private message to one of the moderators.


*If you have a question/topic regarding a certain book or the exercises within, please post it in one of these book-specific forums:

Latin for Beginners, by D'Ooge
A fine book provided for free online by Textkit and the text used most by those learning Latin from Textkit.


Moreland & Fleischer's Latin: An Intensive Course:
Another highly praised and very popular coursebook. It is very intensive and thorough, as the name suggests.


Also, check out The Agora and Composition Board to try your hand at Latin conversation.

How to Link to a Specific Page from a Textkit Text

Postby benissimus » Sat Sep 18, 2004 11:49 am

As many of you know, there is a way to link to a specific page of a Textkit pdf file. I for one keep forgetting how, so I will keep the instructions here for my own use and for the use of any visitors who also want to know how.

1. Go to the Learn Latin (or Learn Greek) page, select the book you wish to link to, and open it in your browser.
For example, choose Allen & Greenough's New Latin Grammar.

2. Copy the URL of the page which holds the pdf file.
e.g. http://www.textkit.com/files/AG_New_Latin_Grammar.pdf

3. Add onto the URL the text #page=
e.g. http://www.textkit.com/files/AG_New_Lat ... .pdf#page=

4. Put the page number which you wish to link to directly after the = sign. Be careful not to confuse the page numbering of the original book and the page number assigned by Adobe Acrobat, as they are asynchronous. This applies only to the page number of the file, not of the book itself.
e.g. http://www.textkit.com/files/AG_New_Lat ... df#page=73

5. Post that in your message, and you will create a link to page 73 of Allen & Greenough's New Latin Grammar.




We request that if you want to show someone where a text is, you send the link to the introduction page rather than the pdf file:

Good:
http://www.textkit.com/learn/ID/109/author_id/42/

Bad:
http://www.textkit.com/files/AG_New_Latin_Grammar.pdf
