Tierce de Picardie Forum / Re: Using Box for your MP3s/Photos

I have adjusted my comments on Box (above) to reflect the way Box works now.  They have upgraded their website recently.

One further comment about uploads to Box.  The 'default' is to upload in Date Order, so you get the latest uploads at the top.  But you can change the listing to eg. alphabetical order of 'titles of songs'.  Useful if you have uploaded a number of songs and want to check out whether a particular song is in your uploads.  Just click on the 'heading' of a column and the order will change.  One click at the top of the first column for 'alphabetical order'; and a second click to get it into 'reverse alphabetical order'.
