Forum FAQ (check here before you ask please!) :)

Here are some of the most common questions from forum users and the corresponding answers:

How do I report spam?
  • If you need to report SPAM, please send a PM (PRIVATE MESSAGE) to Michael Kaudze. The Forum does not always have a moderator or admin logged in, so making a forum post about spam will not notify us of the problem. Sending a PM will send us an email notification from the Forum.
Where do I find the downloads that accompany some articles? How do I make web links in my posts underlined and "clickable"?
  • If you place a web address directly in your text, it will be automatically made "clickable" by the forum. for example type:

    Code: Select all

    http://www.nutsvolts.com
    
    And you get a link like this:

    http://www.nutsvolts.com

    However, the link isn't underlined automatically so some folks don't know it's "clickable". To make a link that is both "clickable" AND underlined, use the following syntax:

    Code: Select all

    [url=http://www.nutsvolts.com][u]http://www.nutsvolts.com[/u][/url]
    
    And you get a link like this:

    http://www.nutsvolts.com
