Title: Forum Features.....
Post by: DARTH VADER on November 21, 2013, 08:26:03 AM
Did you know that this site has many more features than it used to have?

Did you know that we have a FAQ  (http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?action=faq) (basic stuff right now), a Knowledge Base (http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?action=kb) (on Saber info, just like the front page) and a Glossary  (http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?action=glossary) of terms?

Did you know that there is a Media Gallery (http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?media) available to upload works in progress, show off your completed stuff and generally share saber media?

Did you know that we have a nice listing of the "affiliate (http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?action=affiliates)" sites? (saber sites approved by the Jedi Council)



We've added some features to the posting screens as well

Title: Option to turn ON Pop-ups for Personal Messages
Post by: DARTH VADER on November 21, 2013, 08:28:03 AM
This is a friendly reminder or news that you can adjust your profile to enable a window to pop up every time you get a PM.  This enables us to see PMs quicker if we don't normally keep our PM box in our scan.  It took me about a year to realise I could do this myself.  ::) If you are unfamiliar here's how to do it.

Youtube videos are automatically embedded into posts...  just paste the youtube link (although you do have to use http instead of https)


The auto-embed had some issues.  I have added a youtube BBC button (or just type the code like any other BBC)
