Useful Forum Functions


Recommended Posts

Note (13 March 2017): The information in this post is out of date. Once the recent forum update is complete I will update the information.

 

To help people use the forum efficiently I am going to start some threads about various forum features. I will start some features that I find useful in the page headers. The numbers in the red circles relate to the notes below.

 

header.jpg

1) Click 'Rules' to see a list of the forum RULES. You should have at least have some understanding of the RULES. The biggest two IMO is not to offend the Thai King and don't show the forum to any Thai women.

2) The small envelope is a link to your PMs. If you have one or more unread PMs a number will appear in the upper left of the icon. Clicking the link will show you a drop-down menu with recent PMs. The see all your messages clcik 'View All Messages' in hte drop-down menu.

3) The next icon across is you notifications. Here you will find messages if someone has quoted you. If you have some notifications there will be a number in the upper left. Clicking it shows a drop down menu. Each entry has 3 links: one to the posters profile, one to the post in which he quoted you and one to the post he quoted. You can also see all of your notification via a link in the drop-down menu.

4) The next thing across is your forum name. If you click this a drop-down menu appears with a number of options. The link 'My Content' is useful as it gives you a list of all the threads you have posted in arranged by when it was last posted in.

5) This is the search box. Enter the term you want to search for click the magnifying glass or hit enter. You can find more search options by clicking the wheel to the right of the magnifying glass.

6) The 'View New Content' link will provide a listing of the most recent material posted on the forum. It will list each thread with the most recent ones posted in near the top.

I think what I will do next is an explanation of features available while posting and editing options after it is posted.

 

Here are some other threads that you may be interested in:

The search function on the forum sucks sweaty arse!

Probably because of two reasons: the first is that people use the same terms and language continually (some with poor spelling skills) and the second is that people don't know how to perform searches properly. Neither of these have anything to do with the forum software.

It seems to be an issue (ie restricted vocabulary, poor spelling and searching skills) with much of the internet community...:P

Tony Montana: What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!

If you look at the lower right corner of the persons post you want to quote, You will see a 

"tab" that says "quote" click on that. It will auto open a dialog box with that post  all ready for you to type in.

Thank-you Harry Brown and Mr Medic999

Must be either me or my computer, but I just attempted the aforementioned remedy and it did not work as advertised. Hmmmm?

Ensure your Browser is current/updated. If that does nothing, try another Browser, e.g., if you use Explorer, try Firefox

My real name is Robert but you can call me Rob or Bob. I don't go by Robbie or Bobby very much but they are fine as well. Just don't call me late for dinner.

It keeps the thread from showing up again because you already "read it."

There is a way to "mark site read" as well.

Try this, not sure about mobile if it is the same but on my computer it's scroll to the end of page and it's on the right hand side.
