Can I add HTML to my messages?
Yes, you can here. But not all boards let you.
What is HTML?
HyperText Markup Language is the coding language used to create hypertext documents for the World Wide Web. In HTML, a block of text can be surrounded with tags that indicate how it should appear (for example, in bold face or italics). Also, in HTML a word, a block of text, or an image can be linked to another file on the Web. HTML files are viewed with a World Wide Web browser.
What is NovoCode?
NovoCode is a substitute for html code. It was
designed to make posting images, make text bold, url linking etc. easier. The formula looks like this [code] something [/code].
Why should I register?
In order to fully utilize the abilities of this forum, Forever Young require that you register as a member. Registration is free, and allows you to do the following:
Post new threads, reply to other peoples' threads, edit your posts, send private messages to other members, and a lot more!. To register, you will need to specify a username and password, and a valid email address. Entering your email address will not leave you open to 'spam', as you can choose to hide your email address, and messages sent to you via email do not reveal your address to the sender in any case.
How can I change the information in my profile?
It is your responsibility to keep the information in your profile up-to-date. You should especially ensure that your email address is kept current. You can alter any of the fields in your profile, except your username. Once you have registered your username, it becomes yours for life. In extreme circumstances, you may request that the administrator change your username, but he or she will require a very good reason to do so and it will still require you to log in with the old one but the new one will be seen by other members.
What is the signature for?
After you have registered, you may set your signature. This is a piece of text that you would like to be inserted at the end of all your posts, a little like having headed note paper. You can set your signature by editing your profile.
Can I add HTML to my signature?
Yes on this board you can, but not all boards let you have HTML signatures.
What are Private Messages (PM) ?
Private messages can be used to send messages to other registered members of the board. To check your messages, log in to Private Messages through the “User CP” link on the main page. Once there you can also send messages. It's also possible to send a message by clicking on the PM link which comes with each post. Your messages will be stored for 30 days.
What are community leaders?
They are users in charge of the boards. They can delete message, change settings etc.
How can I change my profile?
Use the “User CP” link found on top of the board pages.
Can I edit or delete my own posts?
Yes you can. Community leaders can do so as well.
Is it possible to search the boards?
Yes just go to User CP > Search > then enter the things you are looking for
What are archives?
The archives contain older messages. After a forum reaches 150 topics, the last 50 are moved to an archive.
How do I upload images?
Click on the User CP link. Follow the instructions to create an image gallery. Once you have uploaded your images, you can use them on the forum.
If you want more help or info, PM fin24000 or the “Admin” account.
