PostSubject: Help Section "FAQ"   Sun Jan 27, 2008 10:20 pm

Welcome to the Help section of the forum.

If you require assistance with anything relating to the board then please leave your questions in this section.
Can we ask that you check to see if your query has already been dealt with in one of the threads currently in place.


FAQ

AOL users .......... if have trouble accessing parts of the main site, you will find that if you will need to open Internet Explorer which will enable you to view sections such as Music or Schedule.

Private Messages ..... once a pm has been sent, it will move into your Outbox, then when it has been received and read, it will show in your Sentbox.

Because of server and site volume limitations, your inbox only holds 20 messages, and orders them most recent first, so if you have been sent 25 messages, when you log on, the 5 oldest ones will 'drop out' of the bottom as the system accepts the newer ones. The people who sent the messages will know, because they will disappear from their outbox and not appear in their sentbox.

Usernames ..... changes to usernames can be dealt with in one of 2 ways. You can either re-register or you can contact one of the moderators who will endeavor to have it changed asap. Although, at the present time there may be a delay in completing the changeover.

Posting of images

Please try to keep your image size to a minimum to stop the board becoming slow and keep the threads to pics and an explanation of the shots.

Uploading a picture onto the forum
1 – The image must be hosted on a site outside of the forum before you do anything else. Most people seem to use Photobucket and the url for this site is below

http://photobucket.com/

The site is free and has a simple sign-up process.

2 – Use the image host to upload the image/s you wish to post on the forum. This usually involves hitting the browse or upload button on the site, choosing the image from your pc and then hitting submit.

3 – Once the image/s is uploaded the simplest way to get it onto the forum is as follows –

Highlight the url associated with the picture and then copy it (right click/copy)

Go to the forum and set up your post as normal.

Paste the url into the post (right click/paste)

Highlight the url. Look above the box in which you have pasted the url and you will see a row of buttons. On the right hand side you will see (second from right) a box marked ‘Img’. Click on this and it will automatically insert the required [img] brackets around each end of your url.

Check that it has added the [img] brackets and then hit preview to make sure the image shows before you post it on the forum.

4 – All being well, add whatever message you wish to accompany your picture and hit submit.

On a side note, if you use photobucket it is easier still. Simply highlight and copy the third url under the image in your album and paste it into your message. Nothing else is required.




nb .... the image you wish to upload should have been saved in your pc files as a .jpeg file.

Signatures
The above instructions should be followed to upload your chosen picture. You will then need to go into your profile where you will find this section.

Simply copy 'n paste the [IMG] url into the box, press submit and it should then show in all your posts.

Avatars
Follow the instructions as for the insertion of a signature banner but instead of adding the [IMG] link, you simply need to copy and paste the url itself into the following box which you will find at the bottom of your profile page.

click submit and it should then show in each of your posts under your username.
