Forum FAQ/How to 3.30.12
« on: March 28, 2012, 09:38:00 AM »
Spoiler tag , roll over the black box
to do, highlight spoiler text, then click on the box above the smiles with the white 'S' & back 'P' this is how it will look;
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


let me google that for you; clickable link to a search;
type the search words into the field, highlite, click on the muti color letter box above alignment boxes "LMGTFY'
[lmgtfy]comic con international[/lmgtfy]

I've added a "Joined Date and online status" which appears below the avatar

This forum is now in the Tapatalk system. It is a method of easily accessing forums on portable devices.  It does cost $2.99 which goes directly to tapatalk, nothing to me.  This is a good walk threw,

I've also implemented a hover/preview tool.  When the cursor rolls over a forum thread, the user should see a 50 character preview of the thread.

Some additional features built into this forum people may not be aware of can be found at Profile/Modify Profile/Look and Layout.

Show most recent posts at the top.
Return to topics after posting by default.
Have a quick reply window at the bottom of the page.
Use sidebar menus instead of dropdown menus when possible.
Adjust the displayed time.  The Forum time is set to San Diego. to adjust it for your time zone, go to Look&Layout then click on (auto  detect)

I'm wondering who's going to have spoilers for me now! :D

Alyssa, this looks great! I can tell that you put a lot of work into this.

Zero is the Hero!
She did all the re-organization like moving the threads---We had 3 parking threads(!), no wonder why i could never find stuff- I am very grateful she has joined the team!

Aw, ha ha.  Thank you, everyone!  I'm glad that you all like the forums.  I personally think it was a team effort on my part and Alyssa's part--we really put our heads together to figure out a nice system to organize the threads.

I"m still looking at Mod's for the forum, things like the spoiler tag and the Tapatalk forum reader. 

If there's anyone know's of good mod's from other forums, let me know & I'll take a look at them & see what I can do.

So is anyone using the Tapatalk.  Is it worth it? while it looks kind of cool, i don't see much of a reason to do this over just browsing the site normally.
