Ok so I decided to make this post to point out some of the cool features that I setup in this forum to make your posting and reading expieriance more enjoyable. Here we go:
- Any topic, thread, or category that has a new post in it that you haven’t read will turn yellow and also have a yellow next to it on the far left. Once read the check mark will disapear. This makes it easy to look down a particular category and quickly identify new posts and threads.
- Embededing of Youtube and Godtube videos directly into the post is easy and recommended. ( I recommend it because that way users don’t have to click a link that will open another page on Youtube or Godtube. It allows you to avoid the adds and all the other junk that loads each time you visit the site) To include a video inside of a post simply press the YOUTUBE or GOTUBE buttons shown here:
Then enter the ID tag for the video as shown here:
and volla! You video has now been embedded for all to see.
- Another awsome feature is the ability to upload files from your hard drive and attach them to any post. Any image files that you attach will actually display in the post and if they are to large they will auto shrink. To view them full size simply click on the image and it will load at 100% in another window. Other files will simply attach to the post and allow other members to download them from the post. To upload a file or image click the Browse button shown here:
then once you’ve chosen your file press the Add the file button:
and then post and your done!
These are some of the key features I wanted to make everyone aware of right now but there are more and I will continue to update this post as I have time. I’m also working on a built in chat interface that is embeded into the forum at the top of each screen but its not done yet… I’ll keep you guys updated. Thanks everyone and enjoy!
