How to forum short cuts and tab meanings


#1

I think we should start a new thread dedicated to links and shortcuts of the new forums.

answers I need

1- spell check tab ? and I know if we highlight it gives the options but why not a tab .

2- explanation of watch and subscribe. difirence or what they mean?

3- answer a pm I honestly cannot figure it out ?

4- the post permalink what the hell is this ?

5- and what all the tabs mean in general. I know im stupid and most likely some of this is obvious to most ,well not to me.

6- when we create a post ourselves it should be subscribed to automatically.

  1. I just use the internet browser’s spell check - Does the forum have a spell checker I don’t know about?

  2. I’m pretty sure you know what subscribe means - you get email when-ever anyone posts to that topic or forum. Watching doesn’t email, but the watch button does show a red number of watched things. When a watch goes off you can use this as a quick short cut to the watched thing.

  3. I would presume that it puts a link to the selected post in the clipboard - I have my browser set to not let that happen so I don’t see any effect when I click on the post permalink. If it works like that for someone could they confirm?

  4. hovering over them sometimes gives a little hint - but some clear documentation would be welcome

  5. if you edit your profile, under the subscriptions tab there are subscription options that you might want to play with.

Thanks Ted. Yes Al, the tabs are explained simply by hovering your mouse over them for a moment and a little explanation comes out. The thanks buttons just places a thank you from you to whomever is making the post. Whenever someone else reads that post, he will see that you thanked the author of the original post.

PM. This is private Message. Click this and you can send a private message to the poster if you wish. If you get a private message you can read it by looking at the top of this section, to the right of where your profile picture is. You will see a tab called inbox. That’s where you can go to read your messages. Here’s a picture of that. You can see I have 4 messages waiting for me.
