Title: Update and Help
Post by: Juls~X on October 04, 2008, 19:54:27
Update we are now using a state of the art forum core to run our forum on. But not only a new forum, a new look and a new name to go with it - our old name was originally tied to a site that hasn't been active for around 4 years, on top of which we were getting a high loading from spammers due to the ".info" domain - so we decided it was time for a change and South West Off-Roaders (http://swoffroaders.com (http://swoffroaders.com)) was born ;)

Help

Some bits of help using and navigating the forum:

Parts of the forum can not be seen or used unless you are a member and signed in, including:

Posting can  only be done by signed in members

Images on the forum can only be viewed by signed in members  So if you can't see a pic - sign in or join us ;)

Media is the new name for the Gallery but is not available to non-members

Chat is available (for members only) If you hold down your ctrl button (cmd for Mac users) when clicking on chat it will open in a new window or tab allowing you to chat and browse the forum at the same time (we still need to do a little tweaking to get this to happen on just a click)

Posting Images can be done in a number of ways:
Load your images to a storage site like Photobucket, then link from there to your post using the following code:

Code: [Select]

[img] [/img]


Right click on the image you wish to show in your post and "copy image location" then paste as follows
Code: [Select]

Movies simply load your movie to You Tube or similar site then put the full url to it in your post - the movie will automatically embed and show
