Default vBulletin Forum Features

Be sure to surf around in the FAQ pages, as well as the vbCode info (at the bottom of each page) to familarize yourself with various posting options.

In the meantime, I'll try to point out some of my favorite features on this thread. Those of you experienced with vBulletin feel free to jump in and let us know how you typically use vBulletin.

Default "New Posts" and "Today's Posts" (Quick Links)

Much like the "Last Day" feature on the old sofware, the "Today's Posts" shows you all of the threads that have been posted in the last 24 hours. To access, click the "Quick Links" dropdown at the top of the forum, and then click on "Today's Posts". One difference in the way vBulletin handles this option over the way Discusware did is that the threads in vBulletin are not separated by Topics, as they were in Discus. I think this will prevent the Hunting Reports from being overlooked as they have been in the past.

Also note the "New Posts", which shows you only the posts that have been added since you last checked. I really like this option, and use it a bunch on other vBulletin forums that I have frequented in the past!

The calendar is a community wide calendar, not user specific.

If you'll notice on the October calendar I just added a reminder that the season is closed from Oct 30-Nov 3. If you click on the link for one of those days you'll see who posted it.

To add an event choose from the options at the bottom right corner of the page. Neat feature if you ask me.

Michael, I know you're just getting this started up, but a cool add on feature for vbulletin is called "vbookie". It allows the board operator to set lines on any event so folks can bet on them with imaginary money.

Might be something to consider for next football season.

Also, the added Private Message feature is real handy.

what's the format for imbedding a pic in your post?

Do it have to be hosted on another site and you hyperlink to it?

Default It's fixed...

You just click the paper clip and then select your pic from your computer, then Upload and close the window. Then click where in the message you want the picture and click the paper clip icon again and select which image you want to add at that point.Attachment 194



I have a feeling that the feature that may unfortunately get used a lot is the Ignore List in the User CP area...

Another cool thing about this forum software is the ability to go directly to the last post of a thread, saving scrolling time. Click the arrow in the Last Post column...

Default Posting an Image

Jamie and tuthdoc,

Upload your photo(s) before you post your message. Simply click on the paper clip icon in the message box.

Then, type in your message. When you get to the place in your message where you want to add a photo, click the dropdown next to the paperclip (after your photos have been uploaded). You'll see a list of the photos that you just uploaded. Click on the one you want to insert here.

Continue typing your message, and each place where you want to add a photo, repeat the step above. It should insert the proper code, and your photo will show as a photo instead of a link.

Keep trying!

Michael

Actually, you can upload the photo as you go, you just have to remember to upload it and then insert it. I just figure it's easier to upload it ahead of time and then insert it as you go.

Default Video?

Did I misread earlier or will we have the ability to post video straight to the site? It looked like we could load up to almost a 10 meg video. Maybe I was mistaken. It seems like that would take a lot of server space with all of us video nuts.

I love the new forum, it is already apparent it has a ton of advantages over the old style.

Default Working on the Video Upload Feature

Yes, Benjie, it is already set up to accept .wmv and .mov video clips up to 10 megs. However, there's something on the server side that isn't allowing videos greater than about 1 meg to be uploaded. We're currently working to resolve that.

We have quite a bit of server space, so I'm not particularly worried about that...yet. I've got a maximum attachment limit set per user, in addition to the max file size of the attachment, so we can keep a close watch on that. We'll adjust both limits as necessary.
