Introduction Support
In this section we try to familiarize the user with the forum and its many options.
If you read the following sections you can reply to existing messages and create new ones. You will know how to format the text, insert links, images and videos and much more. We don't want to explain every little detail, but we offer you enough knowledge to find your way and participate here in the forum. You can learn the rest of the functions step by step and with practice easily by yourself.

Configure your profile
Personal Summary Information - All settings of other summary tabs. Edit your data - Edit your username, email address and password. My Avatar - Select an avatar from among those available or upload your own image. If you upload your own image, you can use an image as a load of 250 x 250 pixels and 50 kilobytes. The forum automatically scales the image for use in the different areas of the forum.

Forum Settings
My profile - appearance settings for the forum. Profile information - Add the personal information you want to post. This also applies to your signature on the forum.Messages - List of messages sorted by your current events. Practical for the quick search of your own message. Subscriptions - List of topics to which you have subscribed to receive an email notification of all new replies. Favorites - List of topics that you have marked as favorite libraries so they can be identified more easily in the forum list. Remember, press the "Save" button every time you make changes to your profile.

Response to an existing contribution

Short answer -
This brings a small text field (without reloading the web page), where you can quickly enter a short answer. Press "Send" when you have finished entering your answer. If you have changed your mind, you can cancel the button and nothing will work, regardless of whether you have entered anything or have not published anything.

Reply -
This is the default method in which you must respond if you wish to respond primarily to the last publication. The reason for this is that the subject line of your response will be the subject of the message from which you auto-complete the responses. If you ask, yes, you can change the subject. Well, now you are seeing what is called a text editor. Consider it a reduced version of a word processor (for example, Microsoft Word) in which you can format your text, add links, images, faces, etc., and then add it to your text. More information on how to format your email later. For now, enter your response and press the "Preview" button at the bottom of the page if you wish to send your message before sending it. When the edition is finished and satisfied, your message will be ready to be published in the forum and then press the "Submit" button.

Quote -
If you quote someone later, either in whole or in part, simply press the "Quote" button next to the "Reply" button below each message. This is very useful if you want to make light or expand a previous entry. After clicking on the appointment button, you can be taken to the same editing environment that you edit or create another message using. At this point, enter your answer directly to this offer. When you have finished answering, press the "Send" button.

Reply Topic -
This button works exactly like the "Reply" button, except that the subject line will be filled in automatically with the subject of the original message (OP). This can be useful if you have to reply to a long message whose topics have changed over time, but you want to respond to an OP. When you have finished answering, press the "Send" button.

Create a new own entry -
Now that you have responded to other messages, and you feel like a recognized member of the community, you want to tell us a little about yourself. To do this, you must start your own topic so that we can respond appropriately and greet you. Browse through our General Meeting and click on it so you can see the list of all existing publications. At the top of the list there is a button called "New Topic". Click on this button to start your own theme. You will be placed in the same text editor that you used previously when replying to messages. You just have to give us all your message about yourself and click on 'Send'. Now you have your own topic on the list.

Format your message
Remember before the text editor is very similar to a word processor? Well, as with any word processor, you can format and agree that your text to emphasize is here in the forum.
The first thing to know is that the forum uses what is called BBcode or Bulletin Board Code. BBcode uses `tags 'to` mark' your text. Each 'tag' has an opening and closing tag 'tag' in parentheses. An opening tag will look like [] and a closing tag like [/]. Note that the slash in the closing bracket is the only thing that is different. If you forget the bar, the forum will interpret your closing parenthesis as an opening parenthesis.
The easiest way to `mark 'your text is usually to write it, then select it and press the appropriate button at the top of the editor. For example, if you want to make sure that `Any text 'is in bold type, type` Some texts', then select `Text 'with the mouse, and then press the` B' icon located on the toolbar above the message (where wrote your message) You will now see: Text [/ b]. When you preview your message, it will be displayed as "some text". Alternatively, if you know them, you can manually write the tags along with the rest of the text or you can use the buttons at the top of the editor to add the tags to the fill of your text.
The BBcode wiki covers base brand tags, so let's move on to what the wiki does not extend.

Free Guest Lists
There are two types of lists: unclassified and numbered. An ordered list is a numerical list that can be used to indicate the end of the race. An unordered list is a list that you could use to list foods. There are two different tags needed to create a list.

First, use a tag that creates the type of list you want.
Ul] [/ ul] = unordered list
    [/ ol] = ordered list
    Second, use a list tag for each item in the list
    Li] [/ li] = each item in the list.
    The code for an ordered list would look like this:
    Ol]
  1. 1st place [/ li]
  2. 2nd place [/ li]
  3. 3rd place [/ li] [/ ol]


    Community
    Embedding a video in your message is a new addition to the forum and makes use of many sites to share videos on the Internet. This gives us the opportunity to show the video in our forum without having to stay or make a link to another website to watch the video. Once you want to publish a video you want, you should look for the unique identifier in the URL of this video.
    It is difficult to give detailed instructions or examples here, so we just give the basics. Understand that each video sharing site uses a unique identifier for each video. For example, the video is from YouTube, whose URL is

    . You need to know the unique identifier of the video (which varies according to the site you have visited), in our example the unique identifier is bLtIp-Kn6gQ. Once you know what the unique identifier is, you can embed the video in our forum by visiting the video hosting site, from the `video 'drop-down list at the top of the WYSIWYG pr editor, enter the following:

    [Type of video =] [/ video]
    If you were embedding a YouTube video, for example, the bbcode at the end would look like this:
    [Video type = youtube] insert_unique_identifier_here [/ video]
    e.g.
    bLtIp-Kn6gQ [/ video] It's a good idea to preview your post to make sure the video is viewed before you finish your post. Edit your own message There will be times when you can post a message and don't find yourself with a misspelled word, fix a broken link or something you need to edit in order to write messages. It happens to everyone, so the Edit button is easily accessible. If you are viewing any of your own messages that you need to edit, you will have to find the "Edit" button at the bottom of your message. Simply press the Edit button and use the same editor that created your message with the current message. Edit your message as you see fit, and when you're satisfied, press the "Send" button at the bottom of the page. Done! Visibility and announcement of your favorite messages. Now that you have settled in your new community and everyone has known you, you want to be able to keep up with your favorite posts without having to check every five minutes to see if something new has been written. There are some ways to do it. [b] Draw [/ b] At the top and bottom of each topic you will find the `Subscribe '. By pressing this button you will subscribe to this topic so that all responses to this topic generate an email notification to your email address indicating that a new publication has been made along with a direct link to the publication for your convenience. You will notice that the button is now `Unsubscribe 'indicating that you have subscribed and press the button again to remove your subscription to this topic. Note that you can also manage your subscriptions in your profile. [b] Favorite [/ b] Another way to gain visibility of the threads that want to keep an eye on them is to set them as "favorites." This puts a clear screen, like a star, next to the thread's theme name, so it will be on the forum's list of topics. You will notice that the button is now called 'Unfavorite' indicating that the message is already one of your favorites and pressing the button again will remove it from your favorites. This is a great way to get visibility on multiple topics you want to see without having to send spam to email subscriptions. Keep in mind that you can also add your favorites to your profile. [b] The Karma System [/ b] The Karma system is one of those nice little things that carries the community aspect of a website strengthening your feedback to those who deserve it. It is a tool that you can use to show recognition or rejection for everything that another member has done. Maybe written to help you do something and you have such a quick and helpful response from another member that you appreciate in more than words to show your appreciation. You can do it by giving them a clap of karma. Maybe another member responded negatively to the same entry without offering help and unnecessarily making you look stupid when you really needed help. You can take away karma. However, it should be with a message to an administrator or moderator and let them know in case there is a bigger problem. Please use the responsible karma system. Do not abuse them by artificially inflating someone's karma or carrying out a personal war against someone by putting their karma unnecessarily. If abuse is detected, the karma system will shut down as it is not necessary. The karma controls are at the top, directly from every message we post in the forum. The '+' sign adds karma and the '-' sign takes it. You cannot adjust your own karma. [b] Conclusion [/ b] Now you know how to create your own messages, edit them, set notifications, etc., you are ready to explore the rest of the forum. Do not be afraid. Go to things and see what they do. If something "breaks" or you don't understand how to use something, write in the forum and ask for help. [Video type = youtube] bLtIp-Kn6gQ [/ video]

    It's a good idea to preview your post to make sure the video is seen before you finish your post.
