How to include pictures and hyperlinks in your posts.

Some folks (like me) have found the new forum software to be a bit less than obvious, so I thought I'd post a quick tip. I've taken a screen shot of the reply screen, and circled some of the buttons. Refer to the picture below:

The yaller circle is around the LIST button.
The red one is the IMAGE tag.
Blue gets you the HYPERLINK
Green is for QUOTE.

Hope that helps a few folks. Maybe some other folks can post a few more detailed how-to items.

Better to know what you don't know than to think you know what you don't know.

Good tips, Quartus. I'll be honest and admit I didn't get the new reply screen right away. I was searching around for the quote button and finally found it by holding the cursor over the various graphics. Of course when I found it, the small graphic made sense, sort of one of those "D'oh!!" moments.

Yeah, I fumbled awhile. One more note - make sure you are in Enhanced Mode. Life is easier there.

It would be helpful, if there were titles above all the buttons.

When I first saw the new format, I was like what the hell are these. How do you make links and what not. It didn't take me long to figure it out though. If you hover your pointer over the pics, it tells you what they are.
