Help on Posting (Advance Features) - Help on Bold, inserting

Postby Pal » Sat, 06 Sep 2003 6:09 pm

To post a new topic message, goto the respective categories and press the button "New Topic"

To post a new message in a discussion, press the button "Post Reply"

To reply to a specific message, click "Quote" in that message.

------------------------------------------------------------

To bold a sentence, click the button "B" then type, the rest of the sentence will be bold. To unbold after that sentence, click the button "B*". The rest will be in normal text.

To use Italic text, it is the same as using Bold. Use the buttons "I" and "I*" instead.

Please note that you must click the button BEFORE typing. You cannot insert Bolds and Italic in the middle of text after you have finished typing.

To insert a URL link, click the buttons "URL" then insert the URL and name of the link. You can also type in the URL alone as it will be automatically converted to a hyperlink.

Please note that you must click the button BEFORE typing. You cannot insert links or images in the middle of the text after you have finished typing.

------------------------------------------------------------

To insert a image goto below click "Browse" then select the file on your PC, it will then be uploaded the imageshack. Thereafter, a nother browser will be opened and it will take you to imageshack.us.

Copy the FIRST LINK as seen in the imageshack site then paste the link in the text box in the forum.

Click preview to see whether it is working.

Please DO NOT attach any explicit, pornographic or any image that is deemed undesirable.

How does one insert a hyperlink to hide the actual URL? I've been trying here as I've seen it done by a couple pf people on this board and am FRUSTRATED at this point! :???:

Where does this "Browse" link appear in the reply to a post page?

Only the image link, which means it has to be hosted on the internet somewhere and not on your PC.

Find the URL for the image:

Code: Select all

http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z77/ra_11567561/pigscanfly.gif


highlight the URL and then click the 'Img' button. this will insert [img]&[/img] around the highlighted URL:

Code: Select all

[img]http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z77/ra_11567561/pigscanfly.gif[/img]


When you post your image will appear in the post:
