Forum Essentials

Recommended Posts

To keep things a little bit how I want them to look, I've set attached post images to be sized down to the maximum of 900px width by 900px high.  That means Anything larger then that will be sized down but can still be viewed/downloaded at its original size by just clicking on the image.

forum_insert_post.jpg.95bd8cc278fcf86da4Now the neat thing of this new forum software is that you finally can wrap text around an image even if they are larger then the maximum of 900 pixels high or width, without coding yourself into oblivion but for that to work you need to double click the image after you have inserted it to your post.

 

So first attach an image then insert it into your post. (Ps: once in your post you can drag it around to insert it into the right spot.)

 

 

and then after double clicking your image in the post, something like this will pop-up:

What you need to do next to make it work is

- set the alignment (in this case left)

- Keep aspect ratio

- And size down one of the 2 sizes in the box till you feel it's small enough to wrap your literature around it. :bigsmile:

forum_more.jpg.09087a816422efc4eedddf98f Ok the rest should speak for itself, top right you've got access to your content and settings, where you also can log in/out. 

The 'create' button is only available for 'advanced members' and up. Even then it misses a function until I've figured out what to do with it.


Basically it would allow *you* to put up files in the 'downloads' section. For free or even ones that can be paid for with a (0 - 2.5%) commission for me. But that could lead easily to unwelcome situations, so for now that option isn't available.

Just so you know it is a possibility and if you have any good idea's, my door is open. :blush1:

Then some icons about notifications, messages & report function and then that carrot like icon giving you an option to change the background of this 4Forum. If you like there's a small poll about that right here.

 

And then on the far right above the search box is a "more" pull down menu situated.

Edit: Sunday 14 February, managed to pull some important items out of the more menu and into the top menu by sizing down the top banner. *\o/*

Oh yeah before I forget in case you didn't know, a small tip: creating a new line break

like this, you do that simply by hitting 'enter' on your keyboard.

 

 

Else when you'd like your text to be on the next line
like this, you hit 'Control' + 'Enter' or 'Shift' + 'Enter'.

More things I ran into (damn this forum software has a bazillioen options).

 

Top left click your profile. From there you can add a "banner" of sorts called 'cover photo' in the grey area.


Screen-Shot-2016-02-15-at-15.30.thumb.jpMax size is 300Kb.

You can put something there that is not cropped as you can move the 'cover photo' there up, down, left and right to properly position it.


* If I or any of the moderators see anything offensive there you'll be looking at a lifetime ban. :devil: 

 

 

You can edit your profile if you wish so by filling in something about you in the 'about me' place.
Check my profile and the 'about me' tab for an example.

You can also add an photo there and by one-click on it get some scale option squares around that image.

* Again,  if I or any of the mod's see anything offensive there you'll look at a lifetime ban. :devil: 

 

 

This is all optional so you're free to shrug and move on. :blush3:
