Title: I'M NEW!  HOW DO I...?
Post by LightSlinger on Jan 28th, 2013 at 1:16am
   I've been noticing for awhile that similar questions keep coming up about how to perform certain tasks while using the Forums.  This new FAQ Thread should help with educating newer members on how to do certain tasks that many of us here take for granted already.  

   I will do my best to Categorize these appropriately and will be periodically adding new links and tutorials.  If anyone has any ideas that would like to see added, just PM me!

   Thanks Everyone, Welcome Aboard and Happy Slinging!

Advice for beginners, please read.

HOW DO I...?


Know what the forum's rules are?

Use BB Code to post a url? (Also works for img)

Post a photo directly to the forum?

Resize and post a photograph using MS Paint?

Post a photo directly from my iphone/ipod? *Note: This is not recommended because the resolution is very high on these devices and makes photos very large.  Should probably resize before doing this, but in a pinch...

Post multiple pictures?

Find a variety of useful tools - including easy photoresizing, anti-virus tools, etc

Why am I only able to see pictures in  jpg, img, kb? When a post comes up about his sling, and everyone compliments him, I see nothing.

All pics are jpg.
But, yep it's most likely a template issue.

I'm on my iPhone and I can't see images on posts. How do I fix this?

hmm, iphones are generally crap. But this is most likely a template issue.

try this first: http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?virboard=1;num=1380624454

If that doesn't work - try installing firefox from the apple store and set it to display the desktop site.
