Learning our way around this board:


There's still a lot of things about "runboard" I haven't figured out yet. This thread is for any discussion on how things work. I figured out how to put up an avatar by going into Miscellaneous controls but I don't know if the control panel is open to other members? Could someone tell me? I don't know how to put up photos and can't find any information on it. Would anyone have any ideas? I don't know how to get into management controls as I didn't create this board. Belle did as a back up to my original board. I may have to get in touch with her about it.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


I did this by hand editing, with {img}, only with square brackets before the image url, and {/img} put after the image url.

This is by selecting the "Insert image" menu button and filling in the url in the popup box.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


You start a quote with {quote} and end it with {/quote}, with square brackets instead of curly.

You add a url anchor link with {url="some link address"} before the text and {/url} after, with curly brackets replaced with square ones

[sign in to see URL] out I am the owner of this board. I tried to make Katie an administrator but I'm not sure it worked. I'm an owner who doesn't know what they are doing. Sort of like Trump. I did find the management board and will continue to study it.

The avatar wants 60x60, and I used a url to a .png. You go to "Control panel" on upper bar. Then "Miscellaneous settings" from the drop down, and then "Avatar location".

Re: Learning our way around this board:




Only Youtube videos I think?

You select the button "Embed YouTube", and then fill in the URL and hit "Go".
You get a {youtube=...} with square brackets instead of curly ones, and the ... is a coded identifier for the YouTube video.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


Having trouble setting an avatar.

I keep getting the error "pers_icon: Invalid avatar address".

Can the location of the file be on our pc or does it need to be uploaded somewhere?

I'm using a 60x60 png file.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


[sign in to see URL] to the control panel and then go to "miscellaneous options". Click on that and then click on "avatar" Put in a link to a photo and that should be it. That's what I did and that's all I know. I had the photo on my computer before hand. Hope that is useful.

I've tried that but always get an error message.

No matter what I try, I get "pers_icon: Invalid avatar address".

I sort of forgot how I did my avatar, but I see that I used an image with a publicly accessible URL. It can't be on Facebook, your own computer, email, or anything that some else could not access without having to login.
If you put a copy of an image into something globally accessible, like Photobucket, that should work.

In fact, any image you can put on any post here, should work I think?

Re: Learning our way around this board:


Have a little bit of time again, so what is it people want first?

There is some information about loading a whole different "language" which I think refers to a list of preprogrammed macros that do things like give you the list of post editing options, but they recommend not doing that until you are an expert. It appears easy to screw things up.

But we can try some smaller things first.
For example, text color defaults maybe?
The current seems blue.
Any suggestions?

Personally I love the colors of the old board, easy on the eyes and to read. I still see a lot of brown on the main page but there doesn't seem any pattern to it. Does anyone else see two colors on the threads or names on the main page? That's all I can think of at the moment. emoticon

This is more of a dark grey instead of a blue.
What do you think?
Anything you want.
Its up to you.
