Title: Forum basics
Post by: Handmixer on December 21, 2013, 07:59:48 am
Hi I'm new to the forum and a forum noob
Can anyone point me to a description of forum basics, ie. how to upload and attach an Image or a source code file.

Hit the preview button when you wish to make a post. Below the message box it should say "Attach" in bold. Hit the choose file button and select whatever file you wish to attach. There is also blue text for more attachments if you wish to add more. There may be a minimum post requirement to attach posts, I can't remember. You can also use external sites to upload files or images. In the case of using an external image host, like our <a href=http://img.ourl.ca/>Omnimaga image uploader</a> you can use "insert image". It is the icon found two spaces right from the Youtube icon in your post preview screen. Place the url of the image between the [img] tags. Hope this helps! Welcome to Omnimaga by the way! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask! :)

Hi,

For other forum help there is also this via the navigation http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=help (accessible via MISC->Forum usage help). However, that page doesn't cover any of the third-party SMF features that are currently present on Omnimaga (such as the post rating system, the Youtube/Vimeo/Netham45/Spoiler tags or OmnomIRC), since it was written by SMF themselves.

Thanks, that gave me the push.

No problem. Also you just earned upload rights a few posts ago anyway since you needed 5 posts to upload stuff (at 40 you can even link to your uploads in the site download section for more visibility). :) It used to be 1 until that one bot uploaded adult material a few years ago. :P
