Vanity: Forum Help

Posted on 11/15/2011 9:18:46 AM PST by Solaia

Hi,

Is there some sort of Technical FAQ section anywhere here that provides assistance for using the site?

i.e. - how to upload images to a post? different ways to view the forums? (i,e. stacked vs. threaded) I've looked around but I don't see anything.

Thanks, J

First thing you need to check: Are you logged in?

Go to the top of the page where it says “Free Republic” and click or just below where it says “home/about” and click and it will take you to the place where you get help. At the top of the page there is a menu line with Help on it. Click there.

As one FReeper has noted - click on the Bold ‘Free Republic’ top left corner and browse around.

Good luck!

It could be, although the Undead Thread has been dormant lately.

Welcome to FR, Solaia. :) As others have indicated, the html sandbox is very helpful.

When you post an image, make sure that the source can be published or will appear (I’m not sure how to do that), otherwise you’ll get that little red box.

I think it has to do with proprietary rights of the website, whether or not it will allow images to be used, but I’m not sure.

Does anyone know if there is an option/setting to SUPRESS picture on FR? I sometimes take a peek at work on my lunch hour and breaks. FR is basically my go-to for news and such, but there are times that the pics are VERY work-inappropriate.
