How to add a Poll

When you post a new topic, you will see something at the bottom with 'Options' 'Calendar' 'Add a Poll'

If you see just that, on the far side there is a + click that to get all the options. (Click the - to reduce the options.)


In the 'Add a Poll section
', type the question, then in the poll option, put the options you want, there should be one option per line.

3. How to add an Image

If
you have an image on your computer then you should get a Photobucket
account ( image hosting) and upload your pictures there.
http://photobucket.com/ (Make sure you set your account to private Wink )

Once you upload your pictures, you want to copy the IMG code that you see. Paste that into the message box.

If
you have a link, you can do the same but clicking 'upload from link' or
you can click the image button on the toolbar (2nd on the last line).
Paste your link in there and press Ok.
When you post your image will come out like this:

4. How to add a link

Next to the image button, there is a dark grey image which is for adding links.

When
you click it, there are 2 boxes, the first box is where you paste your
link. The second, is what you want your link to appear like e.g. most
people put the same link again or 'Click Here' etc.

Now when you post your link, it is automatically clickable


e.g.

http://www.google.co.uk/

5. How to add an Avatar and Signature

Avatar

Go to your Profile ---> Avatar ---> You can either upload and image from your computer OR paste a URL (link) into
'Link to an off-site Avatar.'

Signature

Just like adding an image, you need the IMG code for signatures aswell.

Go to your Profile ---> Signature ---> Paste the code im the box. It will look like this:

Code:
[IMG]http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif[/IMG]

Your signature will come out like this:


Quote :

For Images next to each other, paste the codes together without any space, like this:

Code:
[img]http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif[/img]

Your signature will come out like this:


Quote :

If your signature does not appear when you post, you need to go to your Profile ---> Preferences ---> Always attach my signatue ---- Yes
