Quote and PM Tutorial

Postby Cittasanto » Wed Dec 30, 2009 7:28 pm

Hi All,
Just done a PDF tutorial thing for Alan, didn't know where to post this to make sure he got it, but if someone can check it to make sure it is accurate and I'm being clear would be great

P.S. if anyone can think of any others they would like done I quite enjoyed doing this so.

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Manapa, it's great! This type of thing would have been extremely helpful for me in my early forum days, and I am sure it will be for others! It took me a long time, on my own, to figure out how this stuff works.

I'm very impressed!

Still doing something wrong though, as the last line with quote marks is still there.
Also, I can't make the yellow guys work. posting.php?mode=reply&f=11&t=3123#

Make sure you only have one set of quote marks!
you can only delete a post before the next post has been made! before that you can by using the buttons on the top left side corner of the post

Going to have to practice to get this down; tech stuff wears down my brain. Not sure why.
Thanks for the help. I'll probably have more questions later. :computerproblem: :
