HOW TO UPLOAD A DISPLAY PICTURE/AVATAR
There are two methods to access the "change" options:

- Doing it directly from "Your Account -> drag your mouse on the small DP -> Edit"

From your profile, drag your mouse on your DP and click "Edit"

You can upload a DP directly from your device, or from Gravatar. It is recommended you use a picture which is at least 400x400px.
You can use a picture or a gif. MAXIMUM SIZE IS 2MB. If your gif DP doesn't work, it means it has too many frames and you need to cut some.

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MEMBER TITLE
It is possible for you to change your member title (the text under your DP and username).
To change your member title, go to "Your account -> Account details -> Custom title". Don't forget to save your changes.

HOW TO ADD TAGS & EDIT THE TITLE OF A THREAD
You made a thread and you want to edit its title? Clicking on "Edit" on its very first post (OP) will give you the possibility to change it.

To add tags when you post a thread, you need to click on the "prefix" tool. You can access the tool again to change your tag after posting by clicking on "Edit" on your OP.

To insert links just click the button with a chain. A drop-box will appear with URL and Text.

In URL please copy paste your link while in Text please insert the name you want your hyperlink text to appear as. If you simply want to insert a link with no text just leave that box empty. Click Insert for it to appear in your post.

A pop-up box will appear where all the poll data can be introduced.

CAUTION: This is the only time you'll have the option for Display votes publicly. Please tick it if that is your goal. Once users cast their votes this will disappear and the only way to get public votes is to delete the poll and make a new one.

unknown.png


HOW TO USE BBCODE
To view all the BBCODE of a post click the wheel button on the far right on the posting panel.

To view all BBCODE options we offer please click HERE.

unknown.png

HOW TO ADD SPOILERS
NORMAL SPOILERS

To insert spoilers in your posts click the button with the ellipsis, by doing so you will get a drop box which contains Spoiler.

unknown.png

After clicking it a pop-up box with Insert spoiler will appear. In it there is an option to add a general title to hint users what the spoiler will be about. This step is optional, if you don't want to use it simply leave it blank. Click Continue to insert the spoiler BBCode.

unknown.png

After clicking Continue, this should appear, please write what you desire to be in a spoiler where it says INSERT TEXT HERE. Complete the rest of your post and then click POST as normal.

unknown.png

INLINE SPOILERS
If you only want to put a spoiler on a specific work or phrase, but want the rest the text to show up as normal, there is the option to use inline spoilers. This will allow you to display text inline among normal content which hides text that may contain spoilers and must be clicked by the viewer to be seen.

To use this option just use the bbcode [ISPOILER][/ISPOILER] in between the words or text you want to hide.

EXAMPLE: I want to hide this specific phrase in this text.

The correct code for this would be: I want to [ISPOILER] hide this specific phrase[/ISPOILER] in this text.


HOW TO REMOVE POST'S FORMATTING
Went slightly overboard while formatting a post and you want to go back to default?
Click on "Edit", select your content and click on the eraser tool on the left:

wXsX9p8.png


It will remove alignment, colors, and other formatting options to only use the default ones.

I can't even get signature to open. If I come in through anyway but typing the site into the browser more things don't work, so I can't save it to just click in. It seems clear that this site wasn't designed for anyone who is on the phone. I even tried connecting a mouse to the phone, it didn't help. I have no computer and am unlikely to get one. Unlucky me.

For the DP it needs to be resized down as max file size is 2MB and it's over 6MB. I resized it down to a smaller size, so now it's only over 1MB. Try again with this gif and see if it works.

I'll check into adding sigs on mobile now, will get back to you after testing it.

It looks like it did upload though, will check into why it's sending back errors despite that. As for a sig, I removed mine and then re-added it via my phone using the mobile version of the website. After clicking the image icon, paste the URL and hit insert. The image will need to end in .jpg, .gif, etc.

I click on signature and it doesn't even open for me to do as you say. Dp is working now though.

Google that is built into the phone. Not Google Chrome.

I have an iPhone so I can't really test that browser. I would suggest trying Google Chrome possibly, or alternatively, this would take longer but it should work:

It seems to work but is very inconvenient. I haven't seen the sig yet. I will work on it.
