TUTORIAL: STARTING NEW TOPICS, REPLYING, QUOTING AND EDITING

Post by admin on Mon Apr 07, 2008 12:06 am

HOW TO START NEW TOPICS, REPLY, QUOTE AND EDIT POSTS

1. Starting new Topics

1.  Choose the board/forum you want to post your new topic.
2.  Click NewTopic button.
3.  Enter the Subject field with the title of your topic.
4.  Fill in the message field. You have the option to choose the appearance of your text.

*  Tags. If you want to use the B(Bold) button, it is more practical to type the text first, then highlight and click "B" button which would produce text, which renders as text when posted or previewed. The same thing will happen when you click

*  Smileys. They can easily be used by clicking automatically the desired icon that you want to add in your message.


*  Message Color.
After typing the message of your topic.Highlight the message and click the color bars. There you can choose the desired color of your message.                                                                  


5. Once your message is finished, click Preview to check and then SEND to post your topic.

*Note: Text formatting works only on texts entered into the message box and nowhere else. You cannot use text formatting on the title of your new topic.


2. Replying to an ongoing Thread

Replying to a topic means you are continuing the so-called online conversation or 'thread'. If you want to divert from a particular thread and start your own, then you start a new topic.

Basically, replying to a topic is similar to starting a new topic. Whereas in starting a new topic you click the New Topic button, in replying to an ongoing topic you click the Reply button. Here's how:

1. Locate the title of the topic you want to reply to and click on it. At the bottom of the screen you will find the buttons New Topic and Reply.
2.  Click the button and type your reply on the message field.
3.  Once you finished typing your message, you can either click button (to check your post) or directly click button to post message or post.


3. Quoting a Post

If you want to repeat the post of another forumer and add a reply to it, you use the QUOTE function. Here's how:

1.  Click the button on the upper right hand corner of the post you wanted to quote. You can quote any post you want. After clicking the QUOTE button, the exact post is pasted on your message field. Type your reply one line below the quoted topic and not within the quoted lines.

2.  After typing your reply, you may click button, to check your message or button to finally make your post.


4. Editing a Post

Members can edit only their OWN post and not others' posts. That is reserved only to the Admin and forum moderators. You edit your post if you want to correct or add something to your current post.

1. To edit your post, click the button on the upper right hand corner of your present post (beside quote button).
2. After editing, click button to check or button to post.

POSTING AN IMAGE OR PHOTO

Post by admin on Mon Apr 07, 2008 12:09 am

HOW TO POST AN IMAGE OR PHOTO

1. Make sure the photo is saved in your computer.
2. If you are replying to an ongoing thread, click the Reply button. If you are starting a new thread, click New Topic.
3. Locate the Host an Image icon and click on it.

4. The Host an Image box will appear.


5. Click Browse and locate the photo you want to post.
6. Click Host it to upload the photo to the local image hosting service www.servimg.com
7. In the Image url, select the entire address, right click on it and choose Copy.



8. Paste the address into your message box and enclose it with the tags like this (without the bold command, of course):

http://i46.servimg.com/u/f4/12/06/57/36/captur14.jpg" alt="" />

9. Review your work before posting by clicking the Preview button next to the Send button.
10. If your image/photo is displayed in the Preview, you are now ready to finalize the posting by clicking Send.
11. Whichever way you want it, the important thing is that you have uploaded your photo first and have the uploaded photo's entire url copied for pasting on your message box and enclose it with the tags.
12. The procedure above made use of the local image hosting service www.servimg.com for uploading. It is, however, advised to make use of external hosting services (like photobucket, flickr, friendster, myspace, etc.) if you are posting images on a regular basis as the continued use of the local host would consume the forum's alloted space.

POSTING VIDEO CLIPS

Post by admin on Thu Jul 31, 2008 10:42 pm

HOW TO POST VIDEO CLIPS

Posting video clips has never been easier. Follow these simple steps:

1. Search for the video clip you want to post from any of the top video hosting sites (e.g. youTube, eyespot, vimeo, grouper etc.).

2. To make a wild search, just key in some keywords of what you are looking for.

3. Once you find it, copy the EMBEDDED CODE (not the link) of the uploaded video and paste it on the message box for posting.

4. Make sure you copy the whole embedded code and has not left out any codes. To this end, it would be helpful to use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-A to select the whole embedded code. Position/click your cursor anywhere in the embedded code and key in Ctrl-A. You can then right click the selected area and select Copy or you can key in Ctrl-C (keyboard shortcut for Copy). You can now paste the copied codes to the message box for posting.

5. In youTube, the embedded code is found on the right hand section of the video clip.


GOOD LUCK! big grin big grin big grin
