AO Site - Did you know (Round one)

(Round one)

Ill try and keep adding until everything is covered - Feel free to join in. If i think its a rubbish tip I might say so

When typing out your post using quick reply, when you have finished typing, simply press "Alt & S" to post your reply without having to go and get your mouse


The above images (hard to see in this post using the modern skin) can be found when typing out a new post/thread. If pressed they will undo or redo your text just like Microsoft Word does.

How do I change my "What You Driving" information?
This question and answer has been asked lots of times over the years.
Simply go to your user CP/Profile and click Edit Profile, there you can change it or simply click here to edit it now!

Sure, just copy and paste or type them in and the board will turn them into real links for you.

Easy!

Re: AO Site - Did you know (Round one)

Thanks, but I know that bit.
Some posts don't advertise the web address, and any text can be the link. How is that done?

If you want people to be able to click on a word/sentence and be directed to a link, here is how you can do it.

a. write out the word/sentence you wish
b. select it with either the mouse or by pressing the "shift" button and moving on it with the arrow keys.
c. once the text has been selected click on the icon on top of the message box that looks like the Earth with a little chain at the bottom.
d. A pop-up box will appear.
e. Type out the URL on the pop-up box.

Re: AO Site - Did you know (Round one)

Can someone tell me how you link to a specific post in a thread on AO rather then just the thread itself?

Thanks

Re: AO Site - Did you know (Round one)

No probs Kev. Once you've identified the post, right click on such post's Number Count (on the top right of the post's text box), displayed with a hash (#) before it.

This shows the unique URL to such post and you can easily copy the URL and add it to your new post.

So here is a link to an interesting post (147 GTA Test drive: impressions) ...

Re: AO Site - Did you know (Round one)

BTW, may I add you can do the same using the Permalink's URL (just next to the post number reference).

I personally like it better as not only it points you to the right post within a thread, but by opening the whole thread allows users to post a reply (although I do appreciate this way it is more resource intensive and as such more time consuming).

This is the difference.
Link from #post number - Click me to test (AO Site - Did you know (Round one))

Link from right clicking on "Permalink" - Click me to test

Hope this helps somebody?

Regards,

Ian

You are looking at it too hard, its very easy, its just a case of a copy and paste.

Re: AO Site - Did you know (Round one)

The button on the left is found on the home page here if pressed, it will take you to the very last post on the thread. I was amazed last year when people said they didnt know that.

How do we insert image attachments without having to go through a link?

If the image is on the web somewhere, you can just type [IMG], then the URL of the image, then type [/IMG]

And don't forget the even more useful button. If you click that instead of the title, it takes you straight to the first post in the thread since you last opened it.
