I'm Working on an FAQ and Would Like Your Input

I'm working on an FAQ section for the forum and I'd like your input on things you think that I should include.

You could give a quick refresher of basic BB code (the [IMG] and [URL] tags, etc.) in case people don't realize they can use it here.

Also, I found it annoying that when I posted, I was taken back to the main menu instead of to my post. There is a setting in the forum profile to change that. Maybe instructions as to how to do this, upload an avatar, etc.

TJ, I noticed the issue with not being taken back to the thread after making a post. That will be on the FAQ. The other ideas are good ones.

how about How to change to the member's local time? It took me a while to figure that one out.

I accidentally discovered that you can turn off the BBCode. If you click on the button with the arrow surrounded by red brackets, that toggles the BBCode on and off. If you toggle it off, the buttons still work, but the text effects show up in the editor before you hit post. If you want to bold something, but don't want to use BB Code, once you've toggled off the BB Code, you can just highlight the text you want to be bold and then hit the bold button.

I will include instructions for both.

I have posted what I have done so far. I will keep adding to it as the need arises.

MsAnn, first of all, thank you for setting up this site!

Maybe the FAQ could have a couple of points about how to post fics?
They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Naturally they became heroes -- Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan.

I'll add that to the list or make a seperate FAQ for fics. It's going to have to wait a bit as I'm swamped with school at the moment.
