FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - READ HERE FIRST

Postby Knjaz Milos on Thu Mar 30, 2006 1:56 pm

Well, seeing that all these people have been asking questions about stuff, I have decided to write an FAQ.

----Avatar & Profile:

1. Adding/Changing/Removing your avatar:

1) On the top of any page, click on profile. You will be taken to Jamiroquai.com.

2) Log in under your forum username and password.

3) Click on 'Click here to edit your account details.'.
NOTE: You can also edit other account details from the control panel... Obviously...

4) Go to the bottom of the page, and click 'Click here to edit other bulletin board details'.

5) Scroll to the bottom of the page, and find the 'Show Gallery' button.

6) Click the radio button under the image of a cover and then click 'Select avatar'.
NOTE: There are two galleries of images, one with the album covers, and a one with the singles. To jump between galleries, click on the 'Select category' button, and then click 'Go'.
====

----Username change:

1) Repeat steps 1-3 on how to set an avatar.

2) Under the 'Bulletin board' options, find the 'Username' box, and type in your new nickname.

3) Click 'Set Username'.
====

----Password change:

THE EASIER WAY (Not-so-safe, in my opinion):

1) Repeat steps 1-3 on how to set an avatar.

2) Under the 'Bulletin board' options, find the 'Password' box, and type in your new password.

3) Click 'Set password'.

THE SAFER, YET LONGER WAY:

1) Repeat steps 1-4 on how to set an avatar.

2) Under 'Registration information', find the 'New password' box, and type in your new password, then retype into the box below.
I'm not sure if the password is case-sensitive.
====

----E-mail address change:

1) Repeat steps 1-3 on how to set an avatar.

2) Under the 'Bulletin board' options, find the 'E-Mail' box, and type in your new address.

3) Click on 'Set E-Mail'.
====

----Setting the clock to show your current time:

1) Repeat steps 1-4 on how to set an avatar.

2) Scroll down to 'Timezone.

3) Select your timezone. Click here for a list of timezones.
====

----Adding IM service addresses to your profile:

1) Repeat steps 1-4 on how to set an avatar.

2) In the 'Profile' section, find the IM service(s) you use and type your IMS address in there.
====

NOTE: MOST OF THE SETTINGS LISTED ABOVE WILL REQUIRE YOU TO CLICK THE 'SUBMIT' BUTTON.

----Posting and tags:

----The 'Bold' tag:

As you can see, the 'Bold' tag has a wide usage in this FAQ, together with the color code I'll talk about later.

To add the 'Bold' tag to the text, hit the 'B' button above the text box. To wrap parts of already typed text into a 'Bold' tag, highlight the desired part of the text, and click the 'Bold' button. The text will be wrapped in the tags that look like this:

Code: Select all
[b]This is sample text.[/b]


...Which will have an outcome that looks like this:

This is sample text.
====

----The 'Italic' tag:

Pretty much the same as bold. It's applied in the same way to text, the way 'Bold' tag is. The 'activation' button is next to the 'B' button.

Code: Select all
[i]This is sample text.[/i]


The outcome looks like this...

This is sample text.
====

----The 'Underline' tag:

Okay, it's next to the 'Italic' tag, blada, blada...

Code: Select all
[u]This is sample text.[/u]


And this is the outcome.
====

----Quoting:

Quoting is usually done by clicking the 'Quote' button next to a post, but there is a tag that allows you to make quotes by yourself.

Code: Select all
[quote]This is sample text.[/quote]


Outcome...

This is sample text.


However, you can also add names to the quote tags if you want to citate a source of information.

Code: Select all
[quote="Person"]Blah.[/quote]


Outcome...

Person wrote:Blah.


NOTE: WHEN ADDING A NAME TO A QUOTE TAG, MAKE SURE THAT THE NAME IS ABSOLUTELY ALWAYS PLACED BETWEEN THE QUOTATION MARKS: "

HOWEVER, ALSO NOTE THAT THIS IS A SINGLE SYMBOL, NOT TWO APOSTROPHES, WHICH LOOK VERY SIMILAR (WHEN PLACED NEXT TO EACH OTHER), BUT NOT THE SAME: ''

====

----Thesizetag(s):

These tags define the font size.

Code: Select all
[size=7]The[/size][size=14]size[/size]tag(s)


The title is the outcome... The numbers inside the text define the size. The smaller the number, the smaller the font... Same goes with large numbers and letters... I'm pretty interested in what happens if I add a negative number into the tag...
====

----The 'Image tag':

Yet again one of the most commonly used tags around.

Code: Select all
[img]http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/B00005NJFP.02.THUMBZZZ.jpg[/img]


Outcome...

Image
====

----The 'Color' Tag:

This is also a common tag, but sometimes a complicated one.

Code: Select all
[color=red]Blah.[/color]


Outcome...

Blah.

You can also use some more complicated colors, that however, require a certain type of code, constructed out of letters (A-F) and numbers (0-9) with the tic-tac-toe thingy symbol to be typed at the beginning... You can find the code for every color in Adobe Photoshop, in the color select table.

Code: Select all
[color=#D9F78D]This color is unavaliable on this board by default.[/color]


This color is unavaliable on this board by default (And is also hard to read on this background...).
====

----The 'URL' tag:

Okay, this one's an essential if want to link to images, web pages, and other types of content. This tag also has its button.

Code: Select all
[url]http://bb.jamiroquai.com[/url]


And this is the outcome...

http://bb.jamiroquai.com

However, if you want to add a description to the URL, you'll have to follow a slightly more complex procedure...
Code: Select all
[url=http://bb.jamiroquai.com]This is a link.[/url]


The outcome...

This is a link.
====

----The 'List' tags:

Okay, there are three kinds of the list tag. Those tags are similar, yet not the same, obviously.

-Bullet:

Okay, this one's the primary list tag...

Code: Select all
[list][*]List item #1;
[*]List item #2;
[*]List item #3;[/list]


Outcome...

  • List item #1;
  • List item #2;
  • List item #3.

As you can see, the [*] sub-tag is used in all list tags as a bullet.
=

-Numerical:

Okay, this one's also slightly more complex, but not THAT much.

Code: Select all
[list=1][*]List item #1;
[*]List item #2;
[*]List item #3.[/list]


This time however, numbers will be used in the place of bullets...

  1. List item #1;
  2. List item #2;
  3. List item #3.
=

-Alphabetical:

Same as the numerical order, except that the list uses Latin letters instead of numbers or bullets.

Code: Select all
[list=1][*]List item #1;
[*]List item #2;
[*]List item #3.[/list]


Outcome...

  1. List item #1;
  2. List item #2;
  3. List item #3.


I wonder what happens if you list more than 26 items... :?
====

And here we are, at the end of this FAQ about the bb.jamiroquai.com board. Notify me about any mistakes, and I'll be very glad to fix them.

Chill, people.

Back to forum home.

I don't know. I got inspired by the topic with David's instructions on how to set up an avatar. It's not visible anymore... I think he took it down because he doesn't need 2 FAQs.

Yeah, whilst I was having a look around the forums this morning I created a little "How to change your avatar image" thread and then a few hours later this appeared. So I deleted my little item and made this one sticky :)

Then I'd say: 'No, even though that's a generous offer, I can't, because... I'm waaay too weird when you get to know me better...'

Nuuuh... Not really... It's just that I oftenly show my full potential when doing things I'm interested in... I don't like Math very much (But I still do like to fill in a whole notebook and waste ink...), so I really don't show my calculation powers there, even though I need to...

Same here. I'm good at creative things and languages, but very bad at Maths, Physics, Chemistry.

I just realise I was off topic. Again! :x Sorry. I always go off topic even when I have no intention of doing so.

PHOTOBUCKET.COM
it´s rather easy..u can host your pics and movies there

:arrow: 1. register
:arrow: 2. upload a pic from your pc
:arrow: 3. then u will geta

- URL Link
- HTML Tag ( eg. for myspace)
- IMG Code

:arrow: if u want to post a pic in the forum i recomment do COPY the IMG Code and paste it into your post
:arrow: if u have found a pic somewhere in the net and don´t want to save it for some reasons..u can also COPY / PASTE the URL Link into your post - then MARK it and press the "IMG" button (u find it under the subject bar of your message

:D hope this makes things a bit more clear..if u still have any questions please ask here or pm me or other users who seem to know how it works...
