Just a helpful hint if you already haven't discovered it on your own, boy do I feel sheepish as Maya told me and I was like doy!  You already know by clicking on the lexxverse board logo or the home key it takes you back to the whole main board.  And you know when you send a post it sends you back into your post.  To get back to the FORUM  you were in just do this:

You have arrived in the LEXXVERSE where the spirit of Lexx lives on. > Help and Testing Forum > 790's Brain Cube
On the above example, this is what it looks like when I am in a post, or a thread, to get back to the forum itself, just click on the forum name, as in this example, help and testing forum in the line above and it brings me back to the whole forum itself, without having to click on the home key then back into the forum again.  Hope that helps.

Attachments and picture sizes:

While the board does allow attachments direct from your hard drive, it is preferable if you could get a free photobucket account at http://www.photobucket.com to link your pictures, as each attachment you make direct from your hard drive does take up board file space and it is NOT unlimited.  You can link several picture file formats from photobucket.  To link the actual picture, photobucket gives you three choices and you want to choose the IMG column, the one that has img and brackets around the URL.  Try to keep pictures to a 50 K limit, because when they get too large, they make the board go way off to the right.  If you don't have a photo editing program that allows you to resize a pic, you can get a free one called irfanview at http://www.irfanview.com which is a very easy program to use.

Another image hosting site is Imageshack
This site can resize the image for you in a few different sizes when you upload.

Is there any ability to create a "Storage" Folder for PM's, or do you always have to burn them after reading? (or is the only place for them is to accumulate in the "Deleted" folder until 'zapped'?) :badvirus:

Not that I'm aware of, just the inbox, sent and deleted folders, and you control what you delete, once you put it in the delete folder, it doesn't delete automatically, you have to manually delete.

We now have a storage folder feature, XS4XEVR,  for Pm's.  You'll find it under your account when you go to check your pm's.

I've discovered in the boards help forums how you can do scrolling text and smilies..

use the arrow buttons on the tool bar, the left or right arrow, a box will pop up when you click on the arrow, then you type your text into the box.



or you can use these tags




[scroll-left]text here[/scroll]

[scroll-right]text here[/scroll]

But put equal sign in where the dash is, in order to show what it looks like if the equal sign was added, you wouldn't be able to see it.

Unfortunately you've given out the wrong code for the scroll. You put a - after the word scroll and it's supposed to be a = instead. So it should look like this:

[scroll=right or left]

That's BEFORE the pic, and you can't have any spaces, it's not [scroll-right or left]

AFTER the pic, you type in the code like this, making sure NOT to leave any spaces:

[/scroll]

Now if you want to do the GLOW text, along with it, you can, and if you use Pics or icons, it will make those glow as well. Here's how that works.

Make sure you put the glow INSIDE the scrolling box code:

[scroll=right or left] PIC OR TEXT
[/scroll]


Make sure to take out the direction you don't need of course.

Here's an example of it being completed...

If you don't want to list a really long URL and want to have wording in for it instead then simply type the wording you want the user to see, highlight the wording and click the hyperlink icon (the earth icon with the chain on it) and put the address there.
