The forgotten password link has not been working for some time on the Fishy (my fault). It is now working, so if anyone has forgotten their password and tried to use it in the recent past without success, please try again now.

https://forum.thefishy.co.uk/Blah.pl?v-login/p-forgotpw/

It sends you an e-mail to your registered e-mail address which you have to respond to so you'll need to be able to access that.

The Fishy has a fixture calendar you can use in Google/Yahoo/Outlook or anything that understands ICAL calendars

Just add the following URL to your favourite  calendar:

https://thefishy.co.uk/calendar.php

The Fishy's database is updated regularly throughout the season so new fixture dates, postponements and cup games should be picked up straight away if you use this calendar

If you want to embed a youtube video in a post just use the youtube tag like this: "[youtube ]ID[/youtube]"

You can get the value of ID just by copying the clip id in the address bar, as shown below



Example below:

The Fishy forum is now on a subdomain of the main site. All old style urls should be redirected to the new format. The home page of the forum can be found at:

A new feature has been provided on the Fishy where you can embed a single tweet in a post, which provides a live link to the Twitter web site, for example, this is a image tweet from Radio Humberside. You can reply to it, retweet it, and other actions just as you can in Twitter itself.

Tweet 750352180520026112 will appear here...


The image below explains how to embed a tweet on the Fishy. You need to find the long tweet id which you can get from selecting a tweet in Twitter and you can see the Tweet id in the address bar of your browser. You then have to put the tweet id between a pair of opening and closing tags [tweet ] and [/tweet ] and the Tweet should appear.



I will be copying this to the FAQ thread in case you need to look at it again.

Any problems let me know.

The Fishy cannot directly host your images, you need to use a third party. If you want to put your own image on the site you need to first of all put it on an image-hosting site such as https://imgbb.com/ and then embed its location within your message between img tags using this button .

People often ask if we can tell you your password if they forget it. We can't. The password is stored in a hashed format that cannot be reversed. The only way to access your account if you don't know the password is to reset it:

If you keep losing your passwords (and even if you don't) then use a password manager which means you only need to remember one password. Bitwarden is a recommended free one - https://bitwarden.com.
