Posting and Uploading FAQ

How do I post a message?
If you would like to post a new message which is not in reply to another message, on the main page of the Board you would like to post the message to click on the link 'Post A Message' at the top of the page. If you would like to post a reply to a message which has already been posted, go to that message and then click on 'Post Reply' at the top of the page.

You will then be presented with a form which will allow you to enter the Subject, Comments and, if it is allowed, the file you would like to upload. Complete the form - the only field which is required to be completed is the Subject field - and then press the 'Post Message' button.

When I submit a post it doesn't work properly. Nothing posts and I get the same page again. What should I do?
This happens sometimes when you hit the 'Enter' key on your keyboard instead of clicking the 'Post Message' button on the form. Best thing is click on the button when posting a message.

How do I include get my email address to be included with my post?
Go to the Registered Info page and enter the email address you would like to appear with your posts in the box next to Display Email Address. That email address will then be displayed with every one of your posts.

How do I include a link to another site or page in my message?
Just type the URL (address) of the page you want to include. The program will automatically convert it to a link which people can click. This also works for email addresses.

Can I edit or delete a post I've made?
Yes. If you go to the post you want to edit or delete, you should have a link at the top of the page 'Edit/Delete Post'. Click on that link and you'll get a new window where you can make changes to the post.

How do I upload a file?
On the form for posting a message, there is a field for the file you would like to upload. Beside that field there is a button with 'Browse..' on it. When you click on that button you'll be shown a window which will enable you to locate the file on your hard drive. If you use Netscape, you should click on the arrow beside where it says 'HTML Files' and select 'All File (*.*)'. Once you've located the file, select it and then click the 'Open' button. Now, when you post the message, the file you selected will be uploaded to this server and shown with your message.
