Instructions for Posting Car Profiles

Postby admin » Wed Sep 26, 2007 1:03 am

The following are some brief instructions on how to post car profiles on the new forum.

  1. Be sure and make the subject be descriptive including the make of your car and the Haltech system used. That will make it easier for people to find relevant examples.
  2. In the main body area, you can just type in your specs or anthing interesting about your car.
  3. At the bottom of this posting I also give some notes on how to create LISTS (ordered and unordered) in the forum post (like this instruction list).
  4. There are two ways to post pictures:
    • Upload to the site
      To upload your picture to the site, just click on the "Upload attachment" TAB near the bottom of the page. You can then click on the "Browse..." button to identify the picture from your local computer. Then just click the "Add the file" button. Once the file is uploaded, you will probably want to click the "Place inline" button to insert it into your actual text window. Like this...

      Hot car!

      This picture is an automatically resized thumbnail that is also a link to a full-size image that is viewed if anyone clicks on the picture!
    • Link to external pictures
      If your pictures are already online somewhere else, it is recommended that you simply link to them, and not embed the images in your posting. To create a link, type the URL of the link, highlight it, and then click the "URL" button at the top of this window. That's it!
      Here is an example http://haltech.com/images/mainpic.jpg


Instructions On Creating Lists:
The new forum provides an easy way to create ordered (beginning with a,b,c or 1,2,3) and unordered (bulleted) lists. Here are examples and the code for each:
  • Ordered Lists
    To create an ordered list, you will begin by clicking the "List=" button at the top of the screen. Then you need to tell it if it will use letters or numbers to prefix each line. If you want numbers, type a "1" after the = sign. It will now read "list=1" inside the brackets. If you want letters to prefix each line, just type an "a" after the = sign, "list=a".
    To create each line of the list, simply begin each line between the "list=1" and the "/list" with an "
  • ". That's it! Here is an example:
    1. Here is the first line
    2. Here is the second line
    And here is the code that created this ordered list:

    Code: Select all

    [list=1]
    [*]Here is the first line
    [*]Here is the second line
    [/list]
  • Unordered Lists
    Unordered lists are exactly the same as Ordered lists, except you use the "List" button (without the =).
    Here is an example:
    • Here is the first line
    • Here is the second line
    And here is the code that created this ordered list:

    Code: Select all

    [list=1]
    [code][list]
    [*]Here is the first line
    [*]Here is the second line
    [/list]
