|Subject: FEATURES YOU WILL FIND ON THIS FORUM Fri 11 Dec 2020, 5:08 pm|| |
Here you will find some of the features you can find and use on our forum. This will most likely be an ongoing list as I work to get the forums and faqs organised for members to navigate. Please do let me know if something is not working for you, or you need help with finding something or using the feature. THEME PICKERThe skin on this forum was created by me, and depicts an artistic theme, while still being simple and readable. I wanted a forum that was nice and pleasant to look at, while showing that forums do not have to be static. For those of you who prefer a more standard forum theme, I have included a theme picker in the forum script, with 2 simple skins, one white and one black, both of which you can find at the bottom left of most pages. This is a test, and am not sure how well it works in all browsers, but I am using windows 7, and Chrome is my browser, and it works fine. It sometimes seem to jump when moving from page to page, and you will not find the alternate themes on the post editor, and maybe a few random pages, but once you flip to any of them but the default theme, you should see it in the majority of forum pages.SIDE WIDGETSYou may notice off to the right side of the forum pages, there is a red or green icon at the top above MISSION STATEMENT. This is where you can either hide or show the forum widgets in the side bar. This is especially helpful if you are writing a long post or article, and want to view the page editor in it's entire width. It is also helpful when reading long articles, or viewing posts with photos or graphics.CLICKABLE LINKABLE POST TITLESI've made each individual post title clickable, containing it's own url(in order for you to get a post comments url, you must add a title to your post (post, reply, comment, etc) SHARE BUTTONSI have added share buttons and icons in a few places. You can find them on the side widget, the right side of every page, above most posts, and in the top header toolbar. I will add more ways soon.(I have to edit the toolbar as there is a piece of code there that is incorrect. I did not write the script for this, and am still trying to find the code embedded in the programming of the forum. The problem is the @ sign is supposed to be a mail to, but instead it only refreshes the page you are on. I will figure it out sooner or later)
..CHAT MODULES AND ROOMSYou will find 2 chat modules on the site, both of which are only accessible to members. The first is obvious if you are logged in, and is right in the middle of the forums. This module is basically for fun and statuses. You can use it to post a goodnighthello, a sale you are having, or simply to socialize for fun and ease. You will most likely be asked for a user name etc, you can use your user name from here, or create a new one, just be sure to write down your info, because the module won't give you a reminder (I don't think)the second is the sites built in chat. This is more for group convos, meetings, etc... but you can still use it for friendly chats and get to know someone. More on how we will use "rooms" there, as we get bigger, and busier. You enter using your forum username!PRIVATE SECTIONSMany of these are already built, but more to come. These are sections only accessible to activated members, and VIP members. In theses sections you will find lessons, courses, and free downloads of products for your business.REFERRAL PROGRAMAltho this was implemented about 3 weeks after the initial invites to this forum, I have since added a slot in the registration that asks who referred you. In the very near future, I will be working on a point system, that will allow a certain number of points for referrals, and the ability to trade points for extras. Don't worry if you are not able to refer, as there will be other ways to gain points and trade.If you were here before the slot was placed in the sign up page, and you did refer someone here, or were referred by someone else, (including me) please go back and enter this info in the new slot on your profiles, as I will make adjustments, and take all that in consideration when I implement the point system.POINT STORE
work in progressVIP MEMBERS This section, as mentioned above in Private Sections, is already in place, and is consisted of paid members to our store or forum. Note: this was a courtesy extended to paid customers and store members, and soon this feature will only be available thru subscription. If you are a paying customer of our store or membership, you have already been sent this info a couple of times. Please check your newsletters for the archives, to find this info. I may send this info out one more time, (debating) but afterwards, the offer goes away, and a subscription will be needed. At this time, a paying member can receive a lifetime membership to this forum, BUT, they must follow the directions in the newsletter (sent to paid customers) to gain access to lifetime memberships.There MIGHT be a special from time to time of the memberships, and I am seriously thinking of removing the membership from the store, and only using the forum membership. A subscription to the forum (a yearly or a one time lifetime subscription) will give you access to ALL downloads, courses, perks, and hidden forums.TEAM MEMBERSI need them are you game.Read more here: https://colormyagenda.forumotion.com/t4-join-the-teamand here: https://colormyagenda.forumotion.com/t149-testers-needed#311THE EDITOR!The editor is a funny thing, it has the ability to do many things, but can sometimes be quirky too....Here are some of the things the editor has available to make your writing experience a fun and productive one. This is also ongoing, as I add more info about the editor.GIFS: the editor has gifs, you can add these to your posts for fun, and to make a point.
