View Full Version : Information About Posting...

Okay everyone, since there has been questions lately about posts and things I decided to start this thread to help. I figured out how to do things on here just by playing around and clicking on different links in the above section (where is says User CP and all that). I figured (and was naive to do so probably) that most everyone knew how to since they had been posting longer than me. Hahahah, yeah right, that's what you guys are probably thinking. So to help here are some of the tools you can use to make this a better experience and to cut down on emails. LOL

To stop getting daily emails everytime someone posts you can do one of three things:

First you can go to the User CP (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/usercp.php) page (This is where you edit your signature, put up a profile and other things). Once there scroll down to where you see Subscribed Threads on the left hand side of the screen, under that you will see List Subscriptions (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/subscription.php?do=viewsubscription), click on that to see every thread you have subscribed to (every time you post on a new thread you subscribe to it, btw). Once there you can check all the boxes on the right hand side of the thread names and go to the bottom of the list to the drop down menu. There are many selections on the drop down menu that you can choose (one is No Email Notification). Select one of the actions and then click the GO button next to it. If you have multiple pages of subscriptions you will have to do this on every page.

The second thing you can do is when you go to post, scroll down the page to Additional Options. There, under Notification Type, you can choose from the drop down menu to recieve no emails or whatever you want to do.

The third option is to go to the User CP (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/usercp.php) page, click on Edit Options (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/profile.php?do=editoptions), scroll down to Messaging & Notification and under that section will be Default Thread Subscription Mode. You can then click on the drop down menu and select No Email Notification.

On the User CP (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/usercp.php) page you will be able to see who's posted on a thread that you've posted on since you've posted, so you can navigate the boards easier. I would still check the forums for new posts that you have never posted on before.

You can also make a signature (if you haven't figured that out already) on this page. On the left hand side of the screen under Settings & Options you will see Edit Signature (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/profile.php?do=editsignature). This is where you can make your signature (or edit the one you have already). There is more you can do there also. I encourage you to click on them to see what you can do (if you so choose to do). You can also send Private Messages (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/private.php) from there as well.

From the User CP (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/usercp.php) you can also select an avatar for yourself. Just click onEdit Avatar (http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/profile.php?do=editavatar) and you can choose a picture from your computer or a website.

If you want to use smilies in your post and you don't see a smiley list that means that you are using quick post. To post with smilies you need to click on Post Reply in the lower left corner of the bottom of the screen. This will take you to where you can post and use the smilies.

If there is something that I didn't cover here please feel free to ask me and I will do my best to answer. Karenne will be happy to help too, after all, this place is her baby! :biggrin:

If you know how to work this and you can answer a question for someone, by all means, please do so. Don't be shy, speak up and help out. The sooner someone can get some help the better. I'm not always here when someof you are, so if someone else can answer for me that's great. If not I'll answer when I get on here. ;)

I hope this information has helped.

Happy posting everyone! :teacher:
