Site features - tips & tricks
« on: August 10, 2005, 07:31:28 PM »
  • Anyone who misses the Quick reply box - you can activate it from your profile :yes:
  • On the sides of the forum, there are two little arrows. You can slide the portal sideblocks on and off with them :yes:
  • All members can start their own blog, with just a tiny link back to Spankz Unlimited on top of the page :yes: There are a few templates already, some of them are terrible, some are in Italian, but the good news is, you can edit them freely :yes:
  • Calendar - feel free to add stuff that migth interest other members :yes:
May the tawse be with you.

  • If you want to be redirected to the same topic (to view your post) instead of forum index, you can tick the checkbox for that option - also in your account preferences

Don't know if this is the place to mention it....

but the "Preview" option no longer seems to work for me. I click on the button and it says "Fetching preview," but nothing happens. It's not a big deal since one can go in and edit errors, but it would be nice to know exactly what something is going to look like before one posts it.

Thanks, Paddio! (If I may borrow n2b's cute nick for you.  :) )

Yeah, I know about the preview thingy, and it doesn't work and won't be fixed by MKportal before the forum software (SMF) goes out of Beta stage.

There is a way to go around it, but then we'd lose the sliding side-blocks. I can do that though, and it's not even hard. How about it?

There's  cute story behind that nick btw, might have to let N2B tell it :D

"Sliding side-blocks"??? :? Not sure what those are, but no need to lose anything. I can live without the preview....just wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong and that's why it didn't work.

(Yeah, tell N2B to tell us the story!  :D )

The sliding side blocks... well... pretty close to top of each page/forum/board.. whatever there's tiny piccies like <- that... I guess you have never tried to click them.  :whistle:

I have wrapped the board inside the portal, to be able to use the portal navigation bar, but it can be done another way, it's just that there might be browser compatibility issues.
May the tawse be with you.

 :laughter: oooooooooooo the nickio? You wanna heario?

 :unsure: Not exACtly sure how it happened..... :thinking:

But it had something to do with cheerio's.  8)

 :bugger: This bouncing bugger, was just a bouncing bugger, untill we named it bugger.
I started saying cappuccionio...I think...and was accused of eating too many cheerio's :D

And so, I started to -io a lot more....maybe to be a bit annoying  :roll: or maybe not  :whistle:

Either way, I'm contageous...and so Paddio was born. And people kinda took over the io-thing...so now it's like a little languagio. :D

 :laughter: Ah well, if I got it wrong, Paddio, please help me out, cos it's more than a yeario ago, and my brain kinda malefuntcions.... :roll: emphasising da MALE bit  8)
I am a dreamer, but when I wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take...

I think you got most of it right  :laughter:

You indeed were suspected of eating too much Cheerios, since all you said ended up with a weird 'io'
Of course, I'm not completely innocentio, since I challenged you to a rhyming competitio(n)  :roll:
You must have sucked because you had to re-write the dictionario...  :whistle:

 :bugger: <-- he wasn't born a Buggerio, but there were bunch of them and they were called Paddisaur-ios  :roll:
That's because they were baby dinosaur-ios, and that generation was raised in Paddy's Halo House-io  :angelnot:
Until one day a bad brattio, kidnapped and taught them to whack poor Paddio  :cry:
That's when you started to call them Padbugger-ios  :hmm:
However - after few of them ended inside Padbugger Burger-ios  :roll:
The bad brattio send them all over the worldio... to be spared from Paddio's revengio  :yes:

One day, there was a knock on Paddio's door-io  :?
One Buggio asked for a shelter and nuttios  :(
Poor Bugger was hungry but cute-ios,
which melted Paddio's heart-ios  :love:

Still....
For the time of her life she can think-io  :thinking:
How dinosaur turned into a squirrelio  :wacko:
May the tawse be with you.
