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