Tips for using this forum
« on: March 30, 2008, 10:07:07 PM »
This list will grow over time.

First tip is :
How to activate a pop-up if I have a new massage?

I want to see if I have received a PM. So I installed the option that I get an email if someone sends me a PM. But I also wanted to have a pop-up when I visit the forum that I have a PM waiting for me.
Here is the option you need to select in the User Control Panel (link at top right corner)

Second tip:

How does the PM work?
I send someone a PM and it is stil in my outbox, why is it there? Why is it not in the sending messages box?


As usual this answer stands in the manual.

<quote manual>
Sent messages will appear in either the Outbox or the Sent messages folder. As long as the recipient(s) have not yet read the message, it will stay in the Outbox. As soon as someone reads the message it will be archived to the Sent messages folder. If the administrator allows it, you can edit messages after sending them as long as they are in the Outbox and the recipients have not yet read them.

Just a tip if writing out a long post is too write it in word document where you can also use spell checker, then copy & paste onto the forum.
