Default Posting Made Easy

Section 1: Creating New Threads

First, make sure your thread hasn't been created already and that you are in the correct forum...


Click "Search", up at the top of the screen. Then, select "Advanced Search", unless you want really broad and useless results.


1. Type one or two of the words in the topic you wish to create. Choose the least common word in the movie title or subject, so you will be able to find all related threads and use the one that fits your question/comment best and won't get all topics with "the" or "of" or words like that in the title.
2. Click the drop down menus, and highlight "Search Titles Only", so you won't get 3000 threads that just mention the word(s) you're searching for.
3. If you want a specific thread, by a specific member(or just to find all threads created by the member), type in the beginning of their username, and a drop-down menu will appear, select the member's name. This will work with or without steps 1 and 2, but it will show every thread created by that member.
4. "Exact name" will ensure you find the member you're looking for.
5. "At least" or "At most" drop-down menu...add in how many replies to the thread you wish to find, and you'll weed out the smaller or larger threads.
6. "Any date" drop-down menu will give you more than one option for dates.
7. "And newer" or "And older drop-down menu will help you weed out newer or older threads than what you typed in for the specifications.
8. "Show results as Threads" or "Show results as Posts"...Click whichever circle you want your results to show up as. If searching for a thread, click "threads", if just searching for one posts, click "posts".
9. "Search in Forum(s)"...scroll through and select which forum you want the search to be performed in.
10. "Also search in child legacy"...if you search in "Horror Movies", it will also search through "classic horror", "golden age", etc. If you uncheck box, it will only search in the "Horror movies" forum.
11. "Search Now" will display results after a few seconds, depending on internet speed/connection.
12. "Reset Fields" will change everything back to default setup. This will undo everything you selected/typed.
13. Not necessary to use.

Now that you've searched...

Click button to start new thread.


First, you highlight the text that you want the desired effect to be used on.

1. Thread title. If it's for a movie, place the movie's release year in parenthesis next to the title.
2. An easy method of searching topic titles.
3. Will undo any and all highlighted TAGS(explained below).
4. Click arrow for a drop down menu of all available fonts, they will be previewed in menu for you to choose.
5. Click arrow for a drop down menu of all available font sizes, they will be previewed in menu for you to choose.
6. Click arrow for a drop down menu of all available colors, they will be previewed in menu for you to choose.
7. Click arrow for drop down menu of all available smilies, they will be previewed in menu for you to choose.
8. Undoes highlighted portion.
9. Redoes highlighted portion
**8 and 9 are very unnecessary, as you have a backspace key and your brain's memory**
10. Up arrows will make white text box shorter...to a certain size, click more or less for desired size.
11. Down arrows will make white text box taller...to a certain size, click more or less for desired size.

17. Will make highlighted text begin and stay to the right.
18. Will make highlighted text into a numbered list(use only one list item per line, or it will only show up as one line).
19. Will make highlighted text into a non-numbered list(use only one list item per line, or it will only show up as one line).
20. Will increase indent on highlighted text.
21. Will decrease indent on highlighted text.
22. Will make highlighted text a link...A pop-up appears and you typ in the URL of desired link.
23. Will remove link tags from highlighted text.

1. Click white bubble next to icon you wish to have appear next to the thread/post title.
2. Preview your post, always good to make sure your tags, spelling, grammar and punctuation are correct/working.
3. "Show your signature"...Uncheck box to have your signature not show up. Leave checked, if you wish to display your sig.
4. "Automatically parse links in text"...Will turn www.blahblahblah.com into a link without you needing to put in a URL tag.
5. "Disable smilies in text"...Will not display the smiley face when the keyboard shortcut is used, this will cut back on when you use 8), which turns into this:
6. Thread subscription, for when you want to be notified by e-mail or PM and when/how often.
7. Posting a poll...Check the box that says, "Yes, post a poll with this thread. Then, fill in how many options you want in the poll. After the thread is created, you'll be taken to the poll creating page(will be explained below).
8. Submits your newly created thread to the masses, so they can bad-mouth, name-call and do all the fun things we do here.



Section 2: Poll Creating

Alright, by now your thread is created, and the public is looking at it. It sits there without a poll until you finish this step...


1. Type in the poll question you wish to ask.
2. If you've made a miscalculation in how many poll options you want/need, you can re-enter the number in the text box and hit "Update options".
3. Type in each poll option, one to a box.
4. Type in how many days you want poll to stay open, leave blank or put "0" for it to stay open indefinitely.

5c. "Automatically parse links in text" makes any typed links into click-able tags.
5d. "Disable smilies in text" will prevent smilies from showing up.
6. Click to preview, to check for errors.
7. Click to finish making poll.



Section 3: Poll Voting


1. Click white bubble next to option(s) you wish to cast your vote for.
2. Click "Vote now" to cast your vote. Current results will show.
3. "View Poll Results" allows you to see the results without casting a vote.


1. Your vote will be presented italicized.
2. Tells you how many people have voted in the poll.
3. Tells you how many people have voted for each option. If the poll is public, you can click one of the numbers(they'll be red) and see who voted for what.



Section 5: Replying to Threads


Click Button. Posting a reply works exactly like posting a new thread, except you don't have to search if someone's already posted it.



Section 6: Quoting Posts



1. "Quote" button, for when you wish to quote only one person. You'll be taken to the reply page, and the user whom you've quoted's text will be there. You type your reply under their text.
2. "MQ" button. This is the multi-quote feature. You click it, it will turn orangeish red. You can scroll through all the pages of the thread and click as many of these as you want. When you're finished selecting posts to quote, you will then click the "Add Reply" button and be taken to the reply box page, where all the posts you multi-quoted will be there, in the order you selected their post. Begin your text in between each post, after the [/QUOTE] part of the tag.
3. "QR" button. This is the quick reply method, it will take you down to the bottom of the page, where you can submit a reply...quickly.

Honestly, if I've forgotten anything, I don't care at this point.
