Forum "How To Do's"


Recommended Posts

I compiled a list of frequent questions and answers on how to do some basic things on the forum...Hope they help!

 

Upload Siggy

Max. dimensions of pic is 350 x 350. If it is bigger in either direction, your sig may not work.

 

1. go to your usercp and go down to "edit options"

a. at the bottom where it says "Message Editor Interface" in the pull-down box chose "standard editor"

 

2. then go to "edit signature"

 

3. upload your pic. There are 2 ways to do it:

a. upload the image from your computer

b. take the "URL tag" from photobucket

 

4. once picture is uploaded and showing, click "insert signature picture" (see pic below)

Click the image to open in full size.

 

 

Post Images (4 Ways: VBImage Host (down temporarily), from a website, from photobucket or VBPicGallery)

vb Image Host (down temporarily!): This is used to upload images directly in posts.

 

You can upload a few ways:

 

the best way is to upload your pic to photobucket & insert the IMG code.

 

here is the BDW Photobucket account info if you don't want to open your own account:

 

Since the imagehosting feature is not working on the forum right now, I thought I would post the BDW photobucket account for those that do not have their own account.

 

You can host pictures or your siggy here.

 

Use the IMG Code

 

Username: caboweddingforum

password: mexico

 

1. through the link on the navbar (between vbpicgallery & new posts)

or

2. Post a pic from another website:

  • Pull Up the Image
  • Right-click on the Image
  • Go to "Properties" and copy the URL code (imagename.com - Welcome!...)
  • Post a message, go the the "Insert Image" icon and paste the image URL in the box.

vbPicGallery is a place to have your own photo gallery.

 

Please DO NOT uploiad your pics as an attachment so that members have to download them to view them. Pics uploaded as attachments will be deleted!

 

Multi-Quote

If you want to multi-quote a bunch of different posts, here is what you do...

 

1. go to the posts you want to quote and click the "MQ" button.

2. after you have clicked all the posts you want to MQ, go do the "quote" button on the last post you clicked "MQ".

 

this should bring up a page with all the quotes together so you can comment on one post but address different issues/topics.

 

 

Email Notification

Did you know you can change your email notification so you can get the latest information/posts on threads you are interested it...?

 

to see what your notification is set to:

 

go to your "UserCP" ---> "edit options" ---> scroll down until you get here---> "Default Thread Subscription Mode"

 

When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, you can choose to automatically add that thread to your list of subscribed threads, with the option to receive email notification of new replies to that thread.

 

you can change the subscription mode so you get an email whenever a new post is added to a thread you responded to or a daily/weekly update.

 

 

View First Unread Post

This is from Christa (A10CALGAL): Here's a tip that I use everyday, when you visit an ongoing thread that you've read thru to a certain point, you can click "View First Unread" in the upper left hand corner of the screen (just under the "post reply" button & just above the first post). This will take you to the first post in the thread that you haven't yet seen. It's handy!

 

 

Smilies

If you don't have a smilie box and would like one go to your usercp and go down to "edit options". At the bottom where it says "Message Editor Interface" in the pull-down box chose "standard editor"

 

Invite new Members/Referrals:

 

You gain referrals by promoting Best Destination Wedding Forum using your unique referral link. The link you should use as your referral link is this in your usercp and should look something like this:

Just so you know you can also just hit the down arrow button to the left of the thread name and it will take you to the first unread post in the thread. wink.gif

Now I have folders showing but I can't for the life of my figure out how to move the subscribed threads to these newly created folders?! Anyone? Help!

Hi Kim just figured this out for you :)
  • Go under User Cp
  • (this is if you haven't created folders) on the left column, click on Edit Folders under Subscriptions (It should bring up a section where it says Your Folders/Add new folders...
  • (If you have created folders) Go to your subscribed threads, go to the far right where the boxes are that you can check....check the desired box....say it's a thread about DIY, check it.
  • Then Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you should see "Select Threads" with a scroll bar, click on the arrow down till you see "move to folder" then hit Go
  • Then you should see:
  • Move 1 items from 'Subscriptions' Please select a destination folder for the items that you wish to move. Folder Name:
  • Choose the folder you want to put this thread in
  • Then click "move items"
It should work....let me know :) Glad to help

    • I will forever be indebted to the great Dr Black for fixing my broken relationship after my husband left me for his mistress for 6 months. I never believed in spells until my friend introduced me to him. At first, I was skeptical about him because I heard lots about false spell casters but I put doubts behind me for i was desperate to get my husband back and I did according to what he instructed me to do. Now my husband is back just within 48 hours contact him via his email:Blackspelltemple@gmail.com or whatsapp +380501944596
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
