I'm afraid we got rid of the mobiles when the children moved out of the cot.
Children are like Slinkys - not much use for anything, but it always brings a smile to your face when you throw them down the stairs. Chinchilla

Re: Board hints = Friends & Foes

Postby salem » May 5th, 2014, 10:10 pm

Users can be marked as a Friend or a Foe in order to allow for filtering of their messages. If the style supports it, posts made by users on your Foe list will be hidden from view and posts from users on your Friend list will be highlighted. Private Message rules can make use of the Friend and Foes list for filtering incoming PMs.
Excludes any one with Mod/adm permissions :twisted:

Unless using hidden links i.e. url=yousite.whatever it's better now not to use the url bbcode , just let the board parse the link
reason: url code prevents the links opening in a new window (extension) and open in the current one instead.

Adding an avatar to your profile ..........there are some difference in this current version mainly additions such as gravatar .
Current settings allow three ways of achieving this

Gravatar : Remote : Upload
With upload being the most common type used
Settings at the present Are : 130px x 130px with a max file size of 10KiB (note not KB )

to upload : go to UCP>Profile>Edit Avatar

Select type , in this case it's upload avatar , click on browse and select where your avatar file is stored in your pc , normally pictures .
click on the photo file you want then click on open . then submit .......job done

you may have to reduce the size to 130px this can be done with paint or similar
in event of an animated gif the likes of animation shop or similar has to be used .
