Chadman,

That's only temporary. You can change your password to something easier to remember. Steps are below:

1) Click "Settings" link (link in the upper-right corner of the header)
2) Click the "Edit Email and Password" link on the settings page. This link is in the navigation bar on the left side of the screen. You'll likely need to scroll down to see it.

This board migration is giving us the true Ben Roethlisberger experience. He wanted to keep Arians as his O.C. because he was comfortable with it, just like we were comfortable with the look and functionality of our old board. He resisted change to Haley at first but now seems to realize that if he can adapt his game even a little bit then it could be better, even with an awkward transitional phase from the old to the new...I think that's how many posters will react to this change to an updated forum server.

Nice new forum. Also I have used this type before and would like to switch the board from black and gold. SORRY :). It was under profile/general settings on the other board that happened to be black. I switched it to white. Am I missing the setting? I have bad eyes and this board is even worse to look at then before. SORRY AGAIN! :) I do love black and gold!

Well, we change OCs and look what we get. I think Ben is right ... it will take our young receivers years to adjust to all the changes on this board. Couldn't we have just tweaked the old forum a little bit? Who knows how long it's going to be before we can post about red zone scoring and our lousy defensive coordinator and Hightower being the next Jack Lambert.

and where are the freakin' smilies?





J/K ... it will take a little while to get familiar but all is good.

Smiley Information.

Here is how to insert a smiley for a quick reply:

1) Click on the smiley button
2) A smiley dialog box will appear
3) Select your smiley or click the "More" button for additional sections. NOTE: I know the button is hard to read (it's dark grey on a black background). That is something I'll fix.

On a "regular" reply:

1) Click the "Reply to Thread" button or the "Go Advanced" button ("Go Advanced" is a button that appears right below the "Quick Reply" box). "Go Advanced" is equivalent to the regular reply (a bit more options).

2) You'll see a few smileys on the right of the "reply" section. Only a few show up. Right below the few smileys, there is a "More" link. Click the "More" link and all the smileys will apear.

feltdizz - The breadcrumbs at the top of the page allow for that navigation.

At the bottom of the page, there is a drop down called "Quick Navation" that will allow you to quickly jump to any forum.

Also, next to that drop down, there is a "Top" button. That "Top" button will allow you to jump to the top of the current page.

1) Go to Settings (up right corner of page)
2) Click the "Edit Signature" link on the left navigation bar
3) That is where you can edit your sig (i.e. reduce the text size, add an image, etc)
4) To add an image from another side like in your case, simply click the "Add Image" button. It's to the right of the globe button(s).
5) It will ask you for the URL of the image. In your case, enter http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/7800/epinq5ka6.jpg (http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/7800/epinq5ka6.jpg)
6) Click the "Ok" button.

The problem is I don't get the "add image" button or any other button whether it's editing a signature or making a post. That's why we can't find the smilies either.

Is everyone experience this issue? You should see buttons right above where you type in replyes, edit signatures, etc. Some of these buttons will look similar to microsfot word buttons. For example: Bold, Italic, Underline buttons, etc. In that same row of buttons, you should see the smiley, and add image buttons.

Editor? I have no idea what those letter mean. Mainly, it's harder to read the forum thread list. It's not the nice dark bold yellow like it used to be. And the background I am typing on now is white instead of black (no biggie). It's just a little harder to read overall but I can see it fine, just not used to it yet I guess.

That's what I've always done for my sig pic...I've always just linked to imageshack or photobucket...never directly uploaded an image to this site...perhaps that is why my sig worked right off the bat without having to change anything. My avatar's gone though...I should have it saved on my home computer, though...I'll have to wait until after work to fix that one.

Ruthless, I could see your sig originally and can still see it now. It's still pretty big, and seems to dwarf mine at this time. :( Genetics?

For the people saying the font is too small, just hold down your "Ctrl" button and scroll your mousewheel. That should alter the size for you (at least on Firefox and Chrome).

Ruthless, I could see your sig originally and can still see it now. It's still pretty big, and seems to dwarf mine at this time. :( Genetics?

For the people saying the font is too small, just hold down your "Ctrl" button and scroll your mousewheel. That should alter the size for you (at least on Firefox and Chrome).

Love the sig, lol

The font size must be computer / browser specific. I've tried this site on 3 different montirs. 2 large desktop monitors and a small laptop monitor. The text size is a bit small on the 2 large monitors because of the hight resolution but thats to be expected. I might increase the size a tad bit but not too much because each users can adjust it to there needs. It looks to me that it's almost identical to the old forum.

Also, I might increase the size of the avatars since we have the extra room. What do you all think? It wouldn't effect the existing ones but it would on new uploads.

As far as the signatures... the site will reside it to 500 px (width) x 100 px (height). Ruthless' sig definitely exceeds that... he must be special or something. :rolleyes:

The font size and layout are fine to me. Only thing I think is strange on my end at this point is that my avatar is about as large as my sig lol. I'm attaching a screen capture of how the site and what not look on my computer because it always helps to get even more vantage points.

Well, I was going to but I can't seem to attach the picture...even after resizing it down to 270kb or so. Tried uploading it to Imageshack but apparently they want people to register now...then tried TinyPic but when I put the link in the post it doesn't get resized, becomes monolithic, and would make everyone have to scroll on the page...

If you get over 16,000 posts, the site automatically allows you to do whatever the hell you want. :wink:

This has been increased but there is still a limit (>4) to the images per post. Just please try to limit the images as much as possible for those w/ slower internet connections. smilies are one thing but larger images are another. :)

Guess this puts an end to the "Wanted Man" threads featuring a dozen or so pics of Flacco (or whatever QB we're facing that week) getting blasted by Harrison, Woodley, and the rest of the fellas...:(

Yes... multiple posts will avoid the image limit. Plus, the "per post" image limit is probably higher than any of the "Wanted Man" threads. I don't think it'll be a problem.

I increased the file size limit (your image if 200-300k should be fine), and increased the dimension restriction for signatures. It's now a width of 700 and height of 300. I noticed Yours and Joosers current sigs are exactly 100px in height so the forum is resizing it automatically to fit the restrictions which is a good thing.

If you re-upload & update your signature again, it should be the new dimension 700x300

Okay, my sig is functional (huge) and was able to address my avatar issue (for some reason rendering small), I love the quick reply screen. The navigation is getting easier as I get familiar with the layout of where things are at. My kid's soccer has been taking up a lot of time, so once I have some time I'll play with the interface more... Might need to create a new sig. Not having any resolution issues with font size and I've tried navigating on my android, a laptop and a widescreen desktop on high resolution.

That was some good stuff. If it's not an American flag it's a bomb! Oglethorpe is one of my favorite characters ever created.

Oglethorpe: I have an amazing plan to betray our new friend. Ahahaha!
Emory: I thought the plan was to barbecue with him.
Oglethorpe: Plans are for fools! When he gets here, we melt him and laugh on into the night!


nah man, can barely remember last week these days :D

Someone (aherm) that seems to have made their way back to the forum (aherm) had a quote from himself in his sig. Something about that whole "patting yourself on the back for your own opinions/predictions" thing I find in bad taste. Thus, my sig line was born. (Patting yourself on the back for surreptitiously calling someone else out for patting themselves on the back is much cooler and thus acceptable.:cool: )


hahah .. epi and you have manly signatures! hahahah .... l

Again I must say: Genetics. :(

I believe it's working now. Awesome. I feel like I just used Extenze...or some such product that I would obviously know nothing about.

Also, I don't recall the multi-quote option on the old board. It's very helpful and super-awesomez!

03-09-2012, 10:12 PM
Yes,

The multi-quote option is pretty sweet. There's a few more goodies out there like:

Advanced Editor - More convenient than the old
Multi-Quote - Much easier than the old forum
Quick Reply - A lot faster and convenient
Facebook Connect - Connect your forum account to your facebook account
Social Media Bookmarks (located near the footer) - You can share articles, posts, etc
Facebook Like Buttons - Enough said :)
You can publish your posts / replies to facebook via the "Publish to Facebook" checkbox.

Kind of odd sig thing - I've got the picture on photobucket and I added the url in settings, add image. When I am in settings there is a section that says - Your current Signature Picture - it shows the pic from photobucket. But when on Preview Signature, it only shows the URL and not the actual oicture. No pic in the sig when I post either. I'm sure it's user error but not sure why it shows my current sig as the pic but nowhere else?

I guess this might be a dumb question ... but did there used to be a lot more "Gold" writing in the old one? It looks more "white" than "Gold". I guess the font was always white so I'm not quite sure what makes me think so, but it definitely seems like there is less "Gold" on the pages.

not sure where to ask this or if t was already covered in this thread (didnt feel like reading 12 pages)

but, is there an option to click a link and see what topics you posted in like there was on the old board?
