    User Guide
    I. Communication - When viewing the posting window in any thread or conversation, typing in your text can be easy, but using the new functions can sometimes warrant an explanation.
    1. Changing Font Properties: The first six buttons (first two groups) directly manipulate the font properties of your text making it bold, italicized, underlined, changing color, size, and font family.

    2. Inserting Hyperlinks: The 7th and 8th buttons (third group) look like a chain link (or oval or paperclip depending on how you look at it) and a chain link with an “x” on the corner of it. The first one inserts hyperlinks into text and the second one removes hyperlinks.

    a. First type the text you would like to insert the url into.
    [​IMG]
    b. Then highlight the text and click the link button and a dialogue box will appear.
    [​IMG]
    c. Type in the URL of where you would like the text to link to and then press “Insert.”
    [​IMG]
    d. The new text will now be blue with your hyperlink inserted into it. When you publish your thread or send your message it will be turned into a link.

    3. Changing Text Alignment: The 9th button (fourth group) changes the alignment of your text from left adjusted, centered, to right adjusted.
    [​IMG]
    4. Inserting Bullets or Numbered List: The 10th through 13th buttons (fifth group) creates bullet points or a numbered list for you when typing and can shift the indent of the text left or right. To start a numbered list, simply click the button. To make a list that already exists into a numerical or bulleted one, simply highlight the text and then click the button.

    5. Uploading and Inserting Media: The 14th through 17th buttons (sixth group) allows you to insert emojis, pictures, video clips, and special quote, spoiler, and code text.

    iii. Once the image preview has been loaded in the “Attached Files” area, you may insert it anywhere in the window by clicking where you would like it to go, then clicking the “Thumbnail” button for a small picture or “Full Image” button for its actual size.[​IMG]
    b. Inserting an Image From an Online Source
