made some updates to the site
« on: April 19, 2011, 07:12:25 PM »
I've added some of the features we had before I upgraded the software for this site although some of them work a little differently.
You can now customize your signature, upload an image from your computer, and customize your post in the quick reply window using the WYSIWYG editor.
There's a new tool for uploading images and can only be seen if you click the reply button or start a new topic. It's not available in quick reply.
If you click reply, you'll see just below the posting area an empty toolbar for ImageShack.
Click on the browse button and find the image you want to upload to a post. Click host it. It will bring up a window with links to various ways to share your image. It will also ask you if you want to sign up for a membership to ImageShack, which BTW, is free. You don't have to to insert an image but if you ever want to insert an animated gif, you will need to join ImageShack.  It's free and just requires you to give them an e-mail address and username.
So now you're ready to pick the url which you'll need to copy and paste into a post.
Choose the one next to 'Forum Code.' Just copy and paste it to your post. That's all there is.
If you need any help with this, just ask.
