  1. You may have noticed something new in posts, since we upgraded to v4 of the IPB software. That new addition, is Acronym Expansion. You will notice a dotted line under acronyms / initials, like IPS, for example, the creators of the IPB software. If you mouse over these various groups of letters, a popup window will show you the expanded meaning of those initials, in case you may not be familiar with them. I will try to add more of these, as they come to mind, or as I see them in various posts on the site. If you have any you would like to see added, just let me know. Here are a few I have added, which some of you may find useful: EOS, FWCMS, COLA, DOB, NGO, FUBAR, PPPPPPP, SFA, FFS, YMMV, etc. For some of us who appreciate electronics, computers and such, AC, DC, SPST, SPDT, NiFe, NiCd, AH, FLA, GUI, WiFi, WAN, LAN, SWR, EER, BTU, BTUh, etc. I have also added some cities in Cambodia, PP, SR, BTB, and SHV. Lastly, I have added various currencies and miscellaneous other acronyms. I have 104 acronyms, currently. Always adding more, as time permits.
  2. This tutorial will show you how to add images to a post. Doing so is pretty easy in this version of IPB. 1. Click to create a new topic, in any forum on this site. 2. Now, you have one of two ways to attach images to your post. (Actually, three. But, that can be discussed later.) You can open the folder where the image is located. Click and hold the image, then drop it directly into the text box. In this example, I have the image on the desktop. You can drop the image below the text box, where it states, "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." (NOTE: Make sure your mouse is located within the text box, where you wish your image to be added.) Click the small + sign in order to add the image to your post. 3. Finish by adding your message to the text box, and clicking "Submit Topic". All done. As always, if you have any questions regarding this tutorial, please feel free to post below, or send me a message via PM. @mollydooker
  3. Below is one way to start topics on the forum. 1. You begin, by visiting the Forums Index Page. Then, click on "Start new topic". 2. Upon clicking "Start new topic", a window will open, for you to select the forum in which you wish to start your topic. Click the small down arrow symbol to open the drop down menu. 3. In the drop down menu that opens, scroll down to click on the appropriate forum for your topic. In this example, I used the "News Room". 4. When you click the forum you wish to post your topic in, it will automatically show in the window. Click "Continue". 5. You may see this window for a moment, while it directs you to your chosen forum. 6. The next page that loads, will be your "Create New Topic" page. Begin, by composing your topic title / subject. 7. Optionally, you may add tags (2), of your choice, followed by a comma (,) to add them to the Tags window. Then, in the text window (3), compose your topic. If you wish to add files, images, etc., you will do so by clicking (4) "choose files...". To make sure you are notified of any replies to your thread, you should click (5) the notification switch. Lastly, to create your topic, click on (6) "Submit Topic".
  4. If you wish to mention another member when replying, without quoting something they posted, simply type an asperand, or the "@" symbol, then type their username. For example, to mention me, you would type @Parrothead. The background will change to blue. When you post the message (submit the reply), the member will be notified of the reply they should be interested in viewing.
  5. The "Like" options are in the same place as the previous version. John didn't care for the default "Like", which was a heart. I have to say I agreed with him. So, I came up with a "thumbs up" hand image to replace it with. I added "Mad" after I modified an "angry" png file that would work with the others. Maybe not the best. But, I don't claim to be a graphics designer, either.
  6. Another pretty straight forward tutorial, showing you how you may add an avatar to your account, using an image on your hard drive. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
  7. First, quoting the entire content of a previous post. This is pretty well self explanatory. 1. Click "Quote" and start typing your reply, basically. 2. Post your reply below the text within the quotes. Then, click "Submit Reply".
  8. If you folks recall, in the previous version of this forum, if a viewer wished to scroll quickly to the top of the page, each post had a "to the top" link in the lower left corner. Now, there is a "one size fits all" button. Once you start scrolling down the page, a button will appear in the lower right corner. At any time you wish to return to the top of the page you are viewing, simply click that button.
  9. This is pretty simple, actually. Two steps, and you will be done. NOTE: This tutorial will apply to both members and guest viewers. 1. Scroll to the bottom of the page, to begin. Click on "Theme". 2. After you click on "Theme", a drop down menu will open, showing the skins / themes available to you. Click on your choice of available options. 3. Now, you have your new skin / theme to check out. Please Note: I am actively looking for other skins / themes that may be more suitable for members viewing the site. So, that list may change somewhat, in the near future.
  10. How to view current / recent topics and posts is easier to customize in this version of IPB, than in previous versions. Basically, creating a "Stream", gives the a preprogrammed search that seeks using preset parameters. It allows the user to generate the search using a single click. Here is how you create a "Search Stream": 1. Load any page, using any skin / theme. View the menu items. 2. MOUSE over "Activity". 3. Click on "My Activity Streams". 4. Click on "Unread Content". 5. You should see a result similar to this: 6. Make appropriate changes to each column, then click "Save As New Stream". 7. Where it reads "Unread Content", change this to "My Stream", or anything other wording to make it unique. Click "Create Stream". 8. Your stream will then load. NOTE: To make this your default search stream, click on the little check mark to the right. 9. Your new stream will now show up on in the drop down menu for "My Activity Streams". Repeat the above instructions, if you wish to create other streams. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in this thread.
