Information Some cool features
08-14-2009 10:06 AM

Hey Folks, I wanted to share a few of the great features of the MyBB platform that may go overlooked. Take a moment to look through your User Control Panel (User CP underneath the word HOME near the top of the page). Alongside the left hand of the screen is the Menu Box.

The first section is your messenger system with customizable folders. You'll also note that message tracking is enabled so you can see when your message is received. You can enable/disable this feature on each message with the checkbox at the bottom of the message window.

The next section is Your Profile section which allows you to change avatars and signatures ect. Click on the Edit Options button to see and edit your options ranging from privacy and notification to the number of threads per page to display and even some nice forum themes listed in the box called Board Style.

Back on the left hand Menu as you continue down you'll find options for your Buddy list, thread and forum subscriptions and a neat little feature called Personal Pad which will be good for jotting down those secret pheromone recipes you just can't bring yourself to share yet! LOL.

I realize that most of you have got a lot of forum experience and probably know most of this already, but there were several times when I first joined a forum that I wished someone had pointed some of these features out. Lastly, kudos to Mark for choosing this platform and these great little features.

An Inuit hunter asked the local missionary priest: "If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?" "No," said the priest, "not if you did not know." "Then why," asked the Inuk earnestly, "did you tell me?"

Yes, I am not familiar with all the software options Mark could have used, but so far I like this one. It is pretty quick and responsive.

Why thank you Renny. This really is a great forum application, with lots of add ons that are really easy to incorporate, like the ability to display youtube videos in your posts, which I added on yesterday and gave provided instructions on how to do in the Club House. There's also a post on using "mycode" in the Help area.

Nobody changes until the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of change....

A guilty conscience can be more cruel a judge than any court of law. In the end its not how many toys we had, and all that we ever were are the impressions we left on those we leave behind, so live your life as you'd want to be remembered when you're gone!

Buddy List
09-01-2009 7:33 PM

Someone asked me to tell them how the Buddy List worked. I'll go ahead and post it here for anyone who is interested. You can accessed your Buddy List by clicking on "Buddy List" beneath the Pherotruth Logo at the top of the page. The window that opens will allow you to see when your buddies were last online and allow you send a PM right from their listing.

To add people to your buddy list click on your "User CP" beneath the pink and blue symbol in the logo. Your Buddy List is located in the menu box on the left side of the screen. Scroll down and you'll see it next to the heart symbol. You could also edit your Ignore List here.

Clicking the heart will bring you to the Buddy and Ignore lists manger. Just type the username you wish to add in the box and click the "Add to Buddies" button. Separate multiple usernames with a comma. It might help if you are adding several members at once to open the members list in a separate tab so you don't forget anyone. Smile

I don't know if y'all noticed but we also have a nice feature enabling us to save drafts!

To save a draft thread or post:

1. Proceed to the normal posting pages for the action you wish to perform (post a new thread or reply to an existing one).

2. Fill in as much or as little as you want on the posting page.

3. Click the 'Save as Draft' button below the posting area.

Then when you want to retrieve a draft, click on your User CP and on the left...under Miscellaneous, see Saved Drafts. Click on it and it will take you to your list of drafts. Under Draft Options click on Edit Drafts and you can continue right where you left off. Smile

Well, everyone who's here is on my Buddy List. Big Grin...but when I try to access it by clicking on it at the top of the screen, the little pop up comes up but there is no list there...it's blank. Undecided

There's a large blank space at the top of the box. Scroll down to see the list, then you have to scroll within the list to see everyone. Thanks for pointing it out Bella, I don't think it was like that a few days ago. LOL, if you maximize the pop-up and then unmaximize it it goes to normal.

There shouldn't be any blank space, at least there isn't when I open my Buddy list or the Test Account, and I've looked at it in Firefox and I.E 7 and 8.
