Now that we have the basics covered, here's a little bit about our community...
Signatures(sigs) must be hosted. The most popular hosts are ImageShack and Photobucket but there others, it just depends on your needs. You can only use the personal icons provided to you until you reach the rank of 128 bit. After that you may use your own but the size limit is 100 x 100 and 25 kb or less.
When posting, you may also quote another user's post in a few easy steps:
1. Hit the "Reply" above the person's name you want to quote
2. Click on the button and their quote will appear
3. You can now post your response.
If you want to post a picture:
And you found it while searching on Google or Yahoo,
copy the address code or right click on the pic and select properties then copy address(URL).
After copying the code click on and paste it in there and click OK.
If you want to put a hyperlink into a word:
1. Copy the address you want your fellow users to see
2. Type in a word or phrase,ex:Read Me
3. Highlight your phrase
4. Click and make sure you delete the URL that begins with http:// because yours already has one & if there's a second one, the link will not work.
5. Paste your code, press OK. Your link should now be a highlighted purple color. Press "submit post" to post
Macros are shortcuts to either pictures or phrases you use most. Don't feel like typing out a particular phrase for every post, save it as a macro.
To do this, you go to "My Profile", click on the Macros tab, type in your phrase then name it, then save
I hope this has helped just a little. Enjoy your stay here and welcome to the PSU.
