How Do I.... post #1  quote:



Post a poll?

Attach an image from a website?

Take a jpeg and make it fit 100x100 so I can have a personal avatar?

Find that post I worked so hard on that magically disappeared after I spell-checked it? Grrrr...

Use other smilies than the ones offered?

Find out who replied to me without going thru the fuss of looking at the New Posts.

That's all for now!

Thanks
LS

Take a jpeg and make it fit 100x100 so I can have a personal avatar?No clue. Maybe Whidden knows.

Find that post I worked so hard on that magically disappeared after I spell-checked it? Grrrr...Now that is a mystery. It happens from time to time to me too.

Use other smilies than the ones offered?I use this site for smilies. I just copy and paste the image right into the post http://bestsmileys.com/pageindex.htm

Find out who replied to me without going thru the fuss of looking at the New Posts.You can subscribe to the thread and it will send you an email when there is a repy. There should be a subcribe button at the top of the thread.

That's all for now!

Thanks

egads! I'll try to help on some of this, but I don't know everything. For that you should ask Mr. Owl, er Whidden. He knows everything.

If a post "magically" disappears... it's gone. Many times, if I'm saying something more than a couple lines... or something of importance, I will copy it, before doing anything. Then, if it's lost... I've still got it.


With changing an avatar size... you just need to use a program on your comp to change the size. I have PSP 9, and I use that.

Re: How Do I.... post #4  quote:

Post a poll?

You start a new thread. At the bottom, it asks "yes, post a poll".

You click yes. Also, to the side of that is a box that asks number of initial poll questions. The default is "4", but you can make it any number you want, under a 100. I never tried over a 100, it might work, but who would make a poll that long anyway.

Then you hit submit new thread at the bottom, like normal when you start a new thread. Instead of posting the thread, you will be taken to a new screen, where you put in the poll question, and it has spaces for you to put in answers.

at the bottome is a checkbox for if you want multiple choice. (the ability for the poll taker to choose more than one)

When done, hit submit new poll , and it will make the new thread/poll for you.

Attach an image from a website?

Right click on any picture you see on the internet, and it will give you a list with properties at the bottom. click that. Then it gives you a box with some info in it.

there will be a line that says something like "http:/yada yada yada so on.jpg

You drag your mouse cursor over that and highlight it, then right click and choose "copy".

Then you return to Inreview and in your post, choose the IMG box up above the text space where you post and "paste" that link you just copied into it.



Take a jpeg and make it fit 100x100 so I can have a personal avatar?

Microsoft Paint is on every windows system. You right click on your pic you want to resize and choose "open with m.s. paint".

Or, you can open M.S. Paint from your programs menu, and open the pic with the browse function it has.

Once you get the pic opened in M.S. Paint, go to Image. Then attributes. Attributes will tell you the exact size of your pic in pixels. Then go to Image, sketch/skew. It has two percentage boxes for vertical and horizontal. You just change the numbers in there, until you shrink it to the size of 100x100.

It's kind of a drag, you have to sketch/skew, then go to attributes again, to see how much more you need to shrink it.

For example, if you look at your pic and it's 200x200 pixels, the you would put 50% under vertical and 50% under horizontal in sketch/skew, and then it would make it 100x100.

If it's some weird number, like 342 pixels by 467 pixels, you just have to guess at percentages to shrink it, and keep checking back with attributes to see.

It's not as hard as it sound. Once you try it, and experiment, it's really easy.

Find that post I worked so hard on that magically disappeared after I spell-checked it? Grrrr...

Copy it before you spell check it, I always do. Spell check erases mine about 20% of the time.


Find out who replied to me without going thru the fuss of looking at the New Posts.

Go to My Inreview, then Options, then make sure Use 'Email Notification' by default? is checked yes.

fuscia, Whidden & Lawless:

Thanks SO much. It really helped me. Especially the avatar and the poll posting. I tried the poll before but I hit "preview" and it came up like a normal post. I didn't know a NEW screen pops up when "submit".

With the avatars, when I go to put in the web/URL...which one do I put in the actual website or the avatar URL. Heh, I forgot how I did my first avatar. After many tries, it worked (Smallville) but I've been trying for months. I'll take your advice and try again.

Thanks again everyone!

Thanks Lawless. I'm trying to get this avatar that I have on my comp. I think I can size it ok. What other types of programs besides PSP 9 could I use to upload it.

Do I need to have a URL for this avatar, or can I just upload it from my computer?

If it's on your computer, you have to upload it to a place like Photobucket.com


It's real easy, you go there, sign up, choose a password, and it has a browse function that let you look at the pic on your computer, and upload it to their site.


It's free.

After you load it there, it will give you the url for posting in the Inreview avatar box.

what like colors in a post?


You just highlight the sentence with your mouse, then choose the color check box above where you post, and then pick a color.


Fuscia is the Fairy of those who make up the staff. I'm more of a Surfer Dude, Cowboy wannabe.


Though Gaboman is fairy acting sometimes.


He never reads these threads, so I'm safe from his wrath.

Hit up the email link in your control panel. Your username should be filled in for you... you supplied the password when you signed up for Gold Membership. (If you don't know your password, shoot me an email and we'll help you out.)

I believe you can also use POP and IMAP protocols to get mail delivered to your favorite mail client (Outlook, Thunderbird).

I have an idea for a new thread on here. I need help figuring out how to POST a picture that you can SEE on the thread in the post.

Not a smiley, or link but an ACTUAL picture from my computer. For example in the Apprentice thread, we see pictures of (bless her square head) HEIDI, that mystic posted earlier.

I'm kinda not getting the picture posting at all. (Thanks for the help with the smileys Whidden) but I tried, and tried and all I got was a box with a red X in the upper left corner. I must not be doing something right.

Please leave instructions for DUMMIES (me), here. I'm gonna do some reseach this weekend (ie take a lot of pictures), so hopefully I can hook up the thread Monday or Tuesday of the coming week.

Yeah, yeah I know....I'm a pesky bugger but I'm determined to learn.

Thanks in advance!

This is open for feedback from anyone, and no particular person on INR per se.

Still haven't heard back from that Mike guy from Psyphire about the inreview e-mail thing.

Well, the short version, is you use the attachment button and browse your computer for the pic.

(attach file: browse)


then you make the post. The attachment is there to click on in the post, but no picture. So you click on the attachment in the post, then when the pic open up on the new page, you right click on the pic, and copy the http: link thingy. (looks like a web address)

Then you go back to your post and EDIT it, and when you edit it, you choose that IMG button up top, and paste what you just copied into there. Then save changes. Then the pic will show up in the post without having to click on the attachment....
