    Arrow Forum Tutorial for Newbies


    I've been asked many times by our newbie members how to do this and that. So as it's monotonous for me to incessantly reply to the same questions I decided to start this thread after collecting the questions coming again and again.

    I hope those concerned will hence have a better understanding of how this forum works so as to join the SB family and participate in it.

    You would be a sweetheart if you do not post in between, wait untill I say

    Contrary to what you think a forum is not a place like facebook or Orkut. A forum would be like a place, a public one where people meet and share their interests, opinions and talk about anything they want.



    However there are limits set in the shape of rules and moderators are here to make sure that you abide by these rules. At the top of moderators you have administrators commonly called admins.

    Whenever you're in trouble with some mebers, instead of fighting like cat & dog, you'd better contact them





    So if I could illustrate it better for you a forum would be like a country, with some presidents and their colleagues and the rest of the members are its citizens.

    Here come the question # 1 that is How to post a picture ?

    Please stop hotlinking, because slowly but surely you're killing the site from which you picked the url. A site has a place where it store all its pictures and that stoage place is not free, I mean the site has to pay it, and each time someone hotlink a picture the site has to pay more than it should usually do.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    That's why you should go for a hosting site that will host your pictures for free, the best of all is Photobucket. Well if you like any other site then go for it, I'm not imposing anything here, it's all up to you



    you can customize your Photobucket account and choose which links it should display those are the ones I usually choose



    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    If you have a url (http://...) the other option to post a picture is the following one

    Click on the yellow icon



    a window will pop up asking you to enter the url



    at the end you sould have something like this, the url in red between the BBcode IMG in yellow

    Now there's a new question emerging that is How to make friends

    Well what can I say , except do not be shy and dare talking to others

    To make it easy singh_king had the courtesy to start a thread where members can introduce themselves so go there

    http://forum.santabanta.com/showthread.htm?t=101423

    there's also another thread where members can talk about anything, I mean a normal chat

    http://forum.santabanta.com/showthread.htm?t=103021

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    If you wish to add someone in your friend list, go to his / her page and click as seen below on the picture



    I see people who have friends but keep on replying in their own page , no no no - how will your locutor notice that you replied

    If you talked to someone just click on view conversation, you'll be directed there and post your reply

    And the last question is about videos

    What's the site where people are fond of going to watch videos ? Youtubeeeeeeeeeeeee !

    The following step works only for Youtube , I might do for the other sites later ...

    So at your right, there's a place written url



    Pick up that url and especially what is after the = sign

    Put it in between ytv code as seen below and you're done



    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    dear people, sometimes you'll see this message Embedding disabled by request

    it means you can't post the video anywhere !

    So you'll have to go for other sites, that I'll introduce soon

    How to post videos from Dailymotion

    I am introducing this site, I know that most of you are fond of Youtube, but I think the quality of videos posted on Dailymotion are far better than Youtube's

    So here is the step:

    after finding the video of your choice, you can get the link in the url case, but sometimes it's messy and you might not know wht are the numbers to use

    so what you can do is to scroll down, at the bottom of the video you'll see a place written permalink, pick up the url you'll see near it



    then put the number shown after http://www.dailymotion.com/video/ in between the DM code

    Did you know that you could set other font colors than the default ones ?

    Today I discovered a BBCODE that let you choose other colors than the one set as default on forums, maybe you knew about it, but this was unkown to me till today.

    I tried on this forum and it worked !

    So those are the usual colors , you always see, quite nice but sometimes you need others, so here's the code



    you have to type a number which define the color you want after the # sign



    To help you I've posted a color chart, enjoy and have a colorful posting !
