    Once you arrive at the Today's Posts forum, did you notice that you can search the threads, for a members name, or tag words using the buttons right below the ad screen to the left?

          With advanced editing the "A" in the bar above the new post space you can find the "video" link which will allow you to easily include videos in your post. (8th box over from left looks like a movie frame) Making it easy to add a video link to your post.

              Using the "A" for advanced editing you can do a lot of different things:
              • You can do bulleted text to make a point
              • you can easily BOLD text
              • you can underline and do
              • you can type in various colors
              • you can center, right justify and left justify text
              • you can import from Microsoft word and paste as plain text.
              Now if only they would add a spell check. I notice that it underlines your words in red if you misspell something.

                There seems to be an autosave function on the new version, so when you navigate away accidently or something else happens, when you go back to the thread to start again it asks you if you want to restore or delete the saved content. Way to go VBulletin that is a great feature!

                  To upload an picture and embed it within the post;
                  Use the button on the right of the new message box, that looks a bit like a sheet of paper with a paperclip on it.

                  After uploading it, you will see a series of "Insert" options depending on the size you want.

                    Under today's posts if you look at the name of the last poster on the far right you will see the time of the post next to it two little white triangles inside a burgundy box. Clicking on the triangles will take you to the last post!

                      Blueskyracer - this tip is for you. If you type a post then go to include a picture and find out it doesn't fit, or if you find you don't have the picture, if you look in the bar above where you typed your message you will see the camera or the attachment icon is highlighted burgundy. If you click on it the upload attachment section goes away and you can continue on. Or go resize/find your picture and try again.

                          Yes they should be there. Click "Messages" at the top then "Inbox" on the left.

                            Mark, Can you explain the best way to add a link to a post. See this thread I have always used text and connected it to the link but others have always just posted the link. It seems if you just post the link it now "disappears" into the white space.
