Post your knowledge of the board and some tips and tips.

I'll start.

1. The profile page has 4 sections, not just one page. There are tabs on the upper right of the page for preferences, etc. You can get rid of annoying e-mails when you get a PM for example.

2. If you have popups blocked, you won't get the pop-up that tells you that you have a PM.
It's probably a good idea to check you PM box once a day. Clean out things you don't want,
and save things you do want.

To add pictures to the forum, click on gallery, then on "random pictures", then choose file, pick a picture in your computer, then click upload. That will add it to our gallery.

Hey fun feature:

It's called hide. If you pick that option in the "others" drop down menu, only people who post in the thread can see it.
So if you want to see the hidden post or phrase, you have to post in the thread.

Let's test it out......... It will be scandalous.

When you go to "other" and click on "hidden" you get two bracked "hide" words in the posting box. Do you type your post in between the two words?

There are lots of colours that you can change your posts to. You can use the box that drops down to
give you a few basic choices, of you can use"color codes" Basically, if you go to the chatbox, and
pick a colour, you'll see a number that goes with the color. Example #F0039 is a colour. So then if
you type something on the forum, you can change the colour of the post by surrounding the text with
[color= ] type here [/colour]. If you put that number, after the =, you can change your posts to a huge
range of colours. It can be a pain to remember a lot of colours this way, but if there's a colour you always
like to use, this is a neat way to change the shade of a particular colour.

Thank You Katie, that is helpful. So people that always have a different color, like Gimme for example, always do this extra step, or is there a way that they set their profile to always display their writing in a certain color?

Another something that I am not sure everybody has figured out is that if there are several "groups" of smileys. If you don't like the smileys, then go click on "more smileys" and then I think it says something like "smileys 1, smileys 2" which then gives you more to choose from.

color=#ff00ff]Pink is my favorite color


Except put a bracket [ before the word color.

An easy way to do it is to select the square that is colored in Pink with the a/A. That will change it to html
and it's easier to see what you are doing code-wise.


Pink is my favorite color

You can also spell out the color you want (within reason)...like this...

Code:
[color=magenta]Blah Blah Blah.... [/color]

I like Magenta! Its pretty and a fun word to say!

Using this method is great for signature lines, where we don't have editing buttons at the ready. Here is a link to basic BBCODES

You can turn off the annoying notice that another post has been made before you can click send by going to your profile, then pick Preferences.

Go down the list pick NO on "display the warning page of new posts."

A Tip ----- do not call Old Harold the Computer Guy to work on your computer.

I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Harold the computer guy, to come over. Harold clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
He gave me a bill for a minimum service call. As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?"

He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID ten T error? What's that .. in case I need to fix it again?"
Harold grinned.... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"
"No," I replied.
"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."
So I wrote down I D 1 0 T

I used to like Harold.

How to change the text colour or size
To alter the colour or size of your text the following tags can be used. Keep in mind that how the output appears will depend on the viewers browser and system:
Changing the colour of text is achieved by wrapping it in . You can specify either a recognised colour name (eg. red, blue, yellow, etc.) or the hexadecimal triplet alternative, e.g. #FFFFFF, #000000. For example, to create red text you could use:

Hello!

or

Hello!

Both will output Hello!
Changing the text size is achieved in a similar way using [size=][/size]. This tag is dependent on the template the user has selected but the recommended format is a numerical value representing the text size in percent, starting at 20 (very small) through to 200 (very large) by default.
