Hi all. I work with the site owner and am here to help you with tips, answering questions and such since this software is different than the old software.

First off, I know I'm using only my first name, but it's either this or Tech Admin. I'm not going to be doing business deals with you, and Angie can be seen similar to Admin. So, please just consider my name as a title.

I'm doing some tweaking to the permissions, making sure the images work, and such things as that.

Please put your questions here, and please tell me what does not seem to be working, too.

How start a new thread:

To post a new thread

1. Find the forum you want to create the thread in.

2. Look at top of that forum on the right under the top ad for POST NEW THREAD

3. Fill in title and message

4. At the bottom of the message box you can now just use the Create Thread button. Or use the upload a file to add an image from your computer/phone/tablet, when uploaded best to choose Full Image, then use the Create Thread.

5. If you have an image somewhere else (like Facebook or a newspaper) you can do a right click copy and paste directly into the message, then Create Thread.

Private Messages are conversations:

Click on the envelope icon top right:

Once you click on that you will see:
A few old 'conversations' or the new ones will be in a darker font.

From there you can choose SHOW ALL or the START A NEW CONVERSATION.

This is what opens. Looks a whole lot like a forum post, so watch where you are posting.

You cannot delete a conversation, you LEAVE A CONVERSATOIN

You can mark one as unread or use STAR to make it stand out for later.

Also at the bottom of the index of conversations you can find this for search criteria.

To change how you see a forum, go to the bottom of the index of threads and you can see a pull down that will allow you to change your view.

Marked a Forum as Read.

When in forum you wish to mark read, go to the top and find MARK FORUMS READ. Click on that and you will see.

From here you can mark the forum you are in as read, or the whole site. You will have to be in a forum, to be able to choose just that one.

To get rid of the ads or the right sidebar.

Click on the little man icon on the top right:

upload_2019-3-18_10-4-38.png

That will open up to the User Control Panel:
You are looking for Preferences


upload_2019-3-18_10-4-4.png

Click on Preferences and go to the very bottom of the page that opens up.
Opt out of ads and/or side bar and remember to save.

Watched Forums.

When you are in a forum, and want alerts when a new thread is started, use Watch Forum

upload_2019-3-18_10-10-49.png

You will have to do that for each forum you wish to watch.

You will get a box to set your preferences on how to get Alerts.

upload_2019-3-18_10-11-45.png

Once you have Watched Forum or Watched Treads set, you can find the ones you watch by clicking on Watched Threads or Watched Forums from the very top bar.

User Control Panel (access via the little man icon in the upper right of screen)
Please take time to go through all the preferences and set them. Such things as allowing your birthday to be seen, or people allowed to post on your profile page or not. I have mine turned off as I never remember to check them, and everyone can see them. Check the alert preferences to set it to get emails or not for when you are alerted to a new post or thread or conversation.

Daily Emails - how to unsubscribe.

At the bottom of the email there is a Unsubscribe HERE. You can do that and it will unsubscribe you permanently.

To find your Threads and Replies. The Upper left has

upload_2019-3-18_10-24-46.png

Click on one of those to fine your information.

Or go to your user control panel and click on Your Content

upload_2019-3-18_10-25-38.png

This will show threads and posts in order. On the far right there will be an indication of a thread or a post.

That has images and such to show you where to look for the various clicks and buttons. Let me know if you need more help on anything else.
I definitely need help. I read over this many times and it doesn't help. After I type my message-then what- there is no save or send button. I went to preview and nothing any different. This help thread does not say how to finish a message. That is the info I need. Thanks
