Some hints and tips for new members

Post by SeikoJohn on Thu Sep 29 2016, 13:30

Some here may be new to forums and some may not but here are a few little hints and tips that should make life here easier

Firstly we would like all members to have a read of the rules dont worry we are not asking you to sign on the dotted line and sign your life over to us  Smile  It is just a few do and dont's



Now that you have read the rules we would like to know a little about you a friendly hi will do it


 
Instead of trawling the forum to find new posts there is a little shortcut . if you load the homepage you will see a shortcut



once clicked a new page will open that will show posts that have been written since you last visited



This is where you will receive any notifications ie someone may have tagged you in a post or quoted you and also notify's you of a personal message



Once clicked this will open to let you know what your notification is . please note notifications do not delete themselves so you must do this yourself



If there is a topic with lots of posts in it to save having to scroll down all the posts to see the latest entery you can just click here and it will automatically take you to the last post



The forum has a points system similar to like or dislike . If you like a post or dislike it then you can click on the thumb up or thumb down .




maybe on the thread someone has wrote something and you want to quote what they have said this is easy simply click the " button and their post will appear in the quick reply box you simply type your response bellow their quote



For Inserting photos you need a third party photo host such as Postimage or flickr etc . to start with in the quick reply box you need to click the insert image toolbar seen here



once clicked a new box will appear and you need to copy and paste your DIRECT link to this part for your image to appear



If you want a member to know that they have been mentioned in a post or you need the attention of a member in a post you can put this symbol @ in front of their forum name in a post and they will receive a notification ie @seikojohn or @domecurb

I have created a test page here http://thewatch-clockforum.forumotion.co.uk/t341-test-page-for-image-hosting

feel free to play about in this test/practice page
