Important notes on POSTING

Post by MSI » Tue Jun 23, 2009 10:11 pm

Please note: You need to be registered and logged in to post or respond to a thread.
Registration is EASY. SImply click the registration link and it will ask for your email address and voila! You are registered! (the forum will email us and we will have to validate your registration which normally is instantaneous or within an hour or two)
Your email will NOT be used for anything other than verification that you exist! (Forums which allow anonymous postings run into issues with spam, ads, profanity, etc.)
Registration insures the postings to this forum will be legit!
We would also suggest before clicking POST you select all of your post text and right click and COPY it to the buffer.
On rare occasion when you click POST the forum asks you to log in again and somehow the POST gets lost!
If you copy it into the buffer then you can simply paste it in another Post/Reply.
Another option we might suggest is to type up your reponse in a word processor or text editor (with spellcheck!) and then edit copy/edit paste it into the POST.
We apologize for this behavior and are working to remedy it.

Embedding links:
want your posts to include embedded links? The following is culled from the phpBB support documentation!:
lets say you have a link.
http://www.mchenrysoftware.com
generally it will act as a hyperlink and/or you can be sure by higlighting the link and selecting the URL button above.
But if you'd like the link to flow with the text, then do the following:
Write a descriptive text message, like McHenry Website
and before the descriptive text message enter in Brackets [] url=... as follows
' (i've added a quote to prevent it from ... enter [b]'[/b]
so it should look like this in text
'McHenry Website[/url']
and then when you take off the 'quotes' (I only put them there so the link wouldn't light up) you get the following:
[url=http://www.mchenrysoftware.com]McHenry Website

Voila!
