Forum questions?

by WestHartfordResident / March 29, 2014 3:09 AM PDT

Just have a few questions.

1. How do you add an image to a thread. Also, how do you add a link to a word. For example, say I type Intel. I want the users to click the word Intel to get to the link.

2. How do I add a forum signature?

Press Preview and the Edit button will show.

This is a prior answer about editing after posting and I'll defer to that but note you can alert your post and have it removed if you want.

As to "polls", most are removed as many are just spam and just a link to some polling site. There is a longer reason that has to do with the forum policies.

Go to Forum FAQs and look up hyperlinking to get instructions on how to make a word or phrase go to a link. Example This is your question you use bracketed text to open and close your statement. To add a picture, you need to link it to a photo sharing site. You can't add it to the message. Any editing must be done before you submit the post. You can preview it, see if you're happy, and then you submit it. Once you've submitted it, no more editing by yourself is possible.
