Many people are accustomed to using forums. I'm not one of them. If you're like me, you might want to say something, but are wary of the registration and technical headaches. If you are having trouble using the forum, let me know and I will attempt to find a solution and clarify the process for others. What to expect from registration
You will be asked for a username and an email address. Previously I left it open so guests could post by inputting any email address, but the spammers won. Now registration requires email activation, so you have to use a valid email, even if only temporary. Adding new topics
You don't just have to reply to existing topics. To add a new topic, there's a tab on the right (just above "Last Post") that says "New Topic". I mention this because the layout of the forum controls is not the best. Adding photos to your posts
Unlike blogs, the forum software I'm using requires a few steps to add photos. Here's how I do it:
1. Upload photo to Imageshack.us
or some other hosting service
2. Imageshack will provide a link to the photo. Copy that link.
3. In your post, click the "Insert Image" button, then paste your link between the tags. It will look something like this: [image]link[/image]Adding links
1. Copy link.
2. Click "Insert Hyperlink" button.
3. Paste link between tags. It will look something like this: [ur|]link[/ur|]
