PostPosted by Hoovie » Mon Dec 09, 2013 5:28 pm

All Forums have their own little quirks and oddities, and I am sure this one will be no different :lol: So as nice little ways to do stuff easily and fast are spotted, tips will be posted here. If you find something yourself that you think others will like, please post them as well, the more info we share, the better the overall experience. It's good to share :s_drinks

Hoovie

How do I post a picture? Is it via photobucket or can we do it direct from our hard drive?

How do I post up a pdf? I will get the service data sheets started. I like the smilies being easy to hand ;)

Hi,

I need to upgrade the forum to be a 'Premium One', which I will be doing today hopefully. That will give members Upload rights for files and pictures.

Watch this space ....

Been meaning to update this sticky ....

It is possible to upload files to the forum by using the "upload attachments" option. There are some restrictions on what is uploadable and what is not.
Image files (.jpg, .gig, .png, etc, etc) are fine
Doc files (.doc, .pdf, .xls, etc) are fine
The types above can be attached to both posts in the forum and in PMs
Archive files (.rar, .zip, etc.) can be uploaded in the forum, but are not permitted via PM. The best way to share this kind of file between two people would be email.
Other types of files, such as MP3, MP4, QuickTime, and other media type files are not uploadable.
Also not permitted are plain text files.

Handy hint.

When you're looking through the 'unread posts' page, clicking on the little orange and black symbol in front of the thread title will take you to the first unread post in that thread.

Another forum that I'm a member of has the same layout as this one, so I'm finding navigation pretty easy. If anybody wants any help, I'll happily advise as best I can.
