Creating a Hyperlink in your message

You can easily add a hyperlink to your message.

All that you need to do is type the URL (http://www.salisburycamra.org.uk/), and it will automatically be converted to a URL (http://www.salisburycamra.org.uk/)!

The trick here is to make sure you prefix your URL with the http://, https:// or file://

You can also add a mailto link to your message by typing in your email address.

This Example:
no_response[no-spam]@salisburycamra.org.uk
Outputs this:
no_response[no-spam]@salisburycamra.org.uk.

Another way to add hyperlinks is to use the [url]linkto[/url] tags

This Example:
[url]http://www.salisburycamra.org.uk/[/url] takes you home!
Outputs This:
http://www.salisburycamra.org.uk/ takes you home!

If you use this tag: [url="linkto"]description[/url] you can add a description to the link.

This Example:
Take me to [url="http://www.salisburycamra.org.uk/"]Salisbury CAMRA[/url]
Outputs This:
Take me to Salisbury CAMRA
This Example:
If you have a question [url="no_response@salisburycamra.org.uk"]Mail Me[/url]
Outputs This:
If you have a question Mail Me

You can make clickable images by combining the [url="linkto"]desc[/url] and [img]image_url[/img] tags


This Example:
[url="http://www.salisburycamra.org.uk/"][img]http://www.salisburycamra.org.uk/images/site_logo.jpg [/img][/url]

No one else can edit your post, except for the forum Moderator or the site administrator. A note is generated at the bottom of each edited post displaying when and by whom the post was edited.

Censoring Posts

Lost User Name and/or Password

All of the pages that require you to identify yourself with your UserName and Password carry a "lost Password" link that you can use to have your UserName and Password mailed instantly to your email address of record.

When you create a new topic, you have the option of receiving an email notification every time someone posts a reply to your topic. If you wish to use this feature, simply check the email notification box on the "New Topic" page when you create your new topic.
