How to for the new CaddyInfo #Cadillac Forum

25 posts in this topic

I recorded this video to explain how I use the new forum software.  I didn't get to the sidebars and some other interesting features.  Please reply below and let me know if this was helpful, and what you would prefer I addressed in the next video.  It will take youtube a few moments after I post this to get the higher res verisons prepared.

The Chat window is not visible on the video, sorry.  But you can see the chat window if you click on chat on the menu.

Bruce,

Very good video!! You should make that a sticky of some sort. 

Much better than my hit and miss technique I was using to kind of stumble through.

Thank You :D

The site can actually natively hold movie files as well, THAT would be spoiling.  but I find youtube works great for that, and have not turned on movie attachments.

A couple of questions

If someone likes something I post, on the old board, I could go see who it was, is that still possible?

I see an Image Folder.  Currently I use photobucket to upload photos and link them here, does this Image Folder take the place of photobucket?

On my smart phone, if I want to use an emoticon like a smiling face, the above choices like this > :) don't seem to be available, and I get :-)  is there an html was to create an emoticon on my smart phone? 

I like the new format, still learning, but it seems to have more features and it is quick.

Reputation:  now Supporters, Subscribers, & Lifetime members can see who gave them reputation.

Gallery is for posting an ongoing album of your car, or member car journals.  It somewhat duplicates the image functionality of individual posts, but is more image focused.

The decision between posting the image to the forum or to photobucket and linking back should be based on what is easiest.  We are not using the storage allocation for the forum so I am being less restrictive about what image sizes etc can be loaded directly to the forum to make it easier for members to share pics.

On my iphone when I edit the forum I get a editor interface very much like on the pc, with smilies :hatsoff:as one of the choices in the editor menu, and one of the choices on my keyboard menu.  Is that what you see on your phone? :) 

The literal html code for the smilie is

img alt=":)" data-emoticon="true" height="20" src="http://www.caddyinfo.ipbhost.com/uploads/emoticons/default_smile.png" srcset="http://www.caddyinfo.ipbhost.com/uploads/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" title=":)" width="20">

but that said, if you only put in the literal picture code

http://www.caddyinfo.ipbhost.com/uploads/emoticons/default_smile.png

:) the forum will automatically embed as an image?

There are some very cool features, I was really upset for the first few days but it was just that I was lost.   A member PMd me to get me to plead with you to change it back. :P I almost did! Its different but its got some cool features and like you said would happen, it's getting better everyday

Ditto what mike said about being lost. 

At first the "upgrade" seemed featureless but with a little "tutoring" I'm starting to wonder how we ever did it before ;)

But i'm not quite following the emoticon comments. Are you getting all the emoticons only when using the smartphone?

The prior version of the board didnt have emoticon on the android app, but it did have them on the computer.

It took me a day or two to find the emoticon button above on my smartphone, but it works perfect on the new version :)

Ok, now I'm with you :)

What happened to some of the other emoticons @Bruce Nunnally like the "welcome to caddyinfo" one and the other question is, can more be added?

:welcomesmiley: If I click on Emoticons, an Emoticon overview opens with some.  Then if I click on Categories, and Emoticons, I can access all of them.:grouphug:

@OldCadTech yes, we can add more, if there are some we like and if we have permissions to use them.

I have added a separate category and moved some around to make them easier to access.  Where there appear to be duplicates one is high resolution and one is not which is tied to mobile device support.  I will keep working on how to make that clearer.

That's It !! :hatsoff: I didn't even notice the categories selection until now. And that is a lot nicer having them appear like that as the default now.

Thanks Bruce

:nopicssmiley:  here is a text list in case someone does need.  Leading and trailing colons and when done right you should see the smiley pop in.
