How to: Ignore a member

Click on the name of the user you intend to ignore. This will then take you to their profile. There is then a menu which says 'Profile Options', in which you will find an option saying 'Ignore User'. Click on this and, in the new menu that should appear, click on the 'Update Ignored Users' option.

To 'Un-ignore' a member go to your 'Control Panel' and then down to 'Mange Ignored Users' which can be found under the 'Options' section at the bottom. You will then get a list with all your ignored users. To remove a member you then have to click on 'remove' and they are then taken off your 'Ignored Members List'.

How to: Post a picture in a post

The best way to do it is to upload your picture in Imgur.

When you did that you copy the URL address of the picture and paste it directly into the tab. It will then give you options for BB Code.

How to: Block/unblock someone from PMing you

Go to My Controls.

In the menu you click PM Buddies/Block List.

You enter the name of the person you wanna block and put NO behind the name so that person can't send you any PM's.

Then you click add this member to my adress book.

If you wanna unblock them you go back to the list and click edit (behind the name) and change NO into YES.

How to: Post a 'click here' hot link

To do this you must copy the URL you want to re-direct others to (i.e.http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.php?). Then on your screen, you will either be creating a new post or thread, click on the image which states 'Insert Link' when you hover your cursor over it. You will get a new window stating 'Script Prompt : Enter the complete URL for the hyperlink' and this is the window in which you copy and paste your previously mentioned URL into. Click 'OK' and you will then get the next menu which states 'Script Prompt : Enter the title of the webpage' in which you then type in whatever title you want to be displayed in your post that will re-direct the user to your link (i.e. Click Here). Then click 'OK' again and your link should now work.

How to switch off/on viewing of signatures

To enable/disable signatures click on 'My Controls' which will take you to a new menu. Go down to 'Options' and click on 'Board Settings'. Then once the new menu appears, under 'Board Display Settings' you have an option asking 'Do you wish to view members signatures when reading topics?' Click on the drop down menu next to it and chose either 'Yes' or 'No' accordingly, depending on whether you wish to view signatures or not.
