New Posts vs. Todays posts

The link to Todays Posts can be found in the drop down menu under Quick links on the upper nav bar and is go to place for a fast update on all forum posting activity. This link will show all threads that have been updated since your last login.

The link to New Posts is located in the center of the nav bar and functions differently. It will only display posts you have not looked at and this includes any posts you have made. It doesn't really give a complete list of new posts - just ones you have not read.

How to embed a link in text
  • Type text into the reply editor
  • Next highlight the text you want to become a link and select the link tool on the editor box (looks like 2 chain links).
  • A link editor will pop up and you can add the url of the target page. Click OK
  • Don't forget to click "save" once your post is ready.

Set up your signature

If you had a signature on the old site you will notice it's missing. We apologize for this but the signatures didn't import to the new platform gracefully and so you will need to set up a new one.

Members can customize their signatures but please remember to avoid commercial links. Html isn't permitted in sigs for security reasons.

Some formatting hints:
  • Use small (size 1) font sizes and making it bold.
  • Try putting several pieces of info on one line with | (look above the enter key on your keyboard) separators.
  • Remember that your sig shows on every post and so members see it over and over and over. You want it to be informational or fun but not overpower the text of you post.

Note that there is a setting in your profile options to disable signatures entirely. There is also an option to selectively display a signature on a post as you make it which you can see when using the advanced reply editor.

How to embed attachments between text of a post (rather than at the bottom)

You can add photos between pics. The process is similar to attaching an image at the end of a post but there is one more step:

1. Write the post and attach the images in the usual way (use the go advanced button below the text box to find these options) and hit upload

2. Click in the place in the text where you want to include an image and then click on the paperclip icon.

3. Select the image you want inserted and click.

4. Repeat for subsequent images. They should appear in your post rather than at the end.

Your post should look like this:

Thanks Button

The Thanks button is a nice way to show agreement or appreciation for a good post.

Each time you click the thumbs up icon (located in each post), you have the opportunity to leave a comment which the post author can read.

You can access your own thanks comments in your user cp (click on user cp on the upper nav bar) and the last 30 or so will be displayed in the center section of the page under "Latest Thanks received" You can also see stats about how many times you've been thanked.

There are also some options in your profile to control notifications associated with receiving a 'thanks"

Leaves and User Titles

The number of leaves are dependent on the number of posts.

0 to 9 = No leaf
10 to 74 = 1 leaf
75 to 249 = 2 leaves
250 to 499 = 3 leaves
500 to 999 = 4 leaves
1000 to 2499 = 5 leaves
2500 to 4999 = 6 leaves
5000 to 9999 = 7 leaves
10,000 and up = 8 leaves
Each 5000 posts above 10,000 one leaf will turn green

User titles are also dependent on the number of posts.

There is an edit button on your posts but the option goes away after a time limit. So if your post is new just edit it. If it’s older then you’d have to make your changes in a reply. I’m sorry I don’t know what the time limit is. As a staff member I can edit without the limit. So, it doesn’t apply to me.

Hope this helps.

I am in forum https://www.winnieowners.com/forums/...ms-197619.html and would like to post a question and cannot find the “New Thread” button. Only buttons I see are, “Post Reply” (upper left hand corner} and “Quote”, “Multi-quote”, “Quick Reply” and “Thanks” buttons. No “New Thread” button. How do I post a question?

Do you want to ask a question of someone in that thread? If so, click on "Post Reply."

If you want to start a new thread you would not do that within someone else's existing thread. To see the "New Thread" button you need to be in the Forum index. Not within a thread. That forum is the General Maintenance and Repair forum. If that's where you want to ask your question, back out of that thread to the Forum Index.

If you want to choose some other forum then you need to back out one step farther to the Main Index to see the listing of ALL the available forums. Then choose the correct forum topic and enter that forum's Index and click New Thread.
