OK. First post in Armorama. Sort of empty around here but I hope it will become more crowded soon …
Welcome to the new site Robin! Since this forum is going to be all about the moderation this is like… your thing.
I lowered it down to 10 characters btw.
Hi there! Bit of a different look to this, will take some getting used to!
This forum is VERY powerful software. Just take the pagination for example. There isn’t any. It’s a linear format that just keeps scrolling. It will also save your last viewed location as well. There is not a lot it doesn’t do to be honest. And I haven’t even turned on all it’s potential via various plugins that are available as well. Welcome aboard.
Not sure I’ll have much play-time before the weekend, but I’ll eventually test out as much as I can.
(Just testing pasting an image link fom Imagur…)
…and that was easy!
Yup. Keep in mind any images you do that with are automatically downloaded to this server, so it’s not pulling the image from imgr after it does that. Also it’s just as easy to upload a file from your PC directly provided it’s not larger than 4mb.
Also if you do an upload like mine you’ll see that initially the images are just in the post, visible, but not clickable. After a while (background process I guess) they are clickable and in a lightbox style viewer when magnified.
Easy! I like it. That solves the problem of constant “how to add an image” questions…
I have added you all as moderators so you can reach the Staff category as well as see some of the admin links in the upper toolbar. If you click on the 3 bars next to your avatar, note the “Admin” tool option as well as the “Reports” link. This is where any reported posts would live. I will flag Mario’s last post so we can see how that works.
Is that your kit above btw? Nice interior!
Yes, I’ve been working on it for quite some time now. I’m finally ready to close the interior… and I’m wondering how much would be seen afterwards.
Trying some emojis…
Ah, but you’ll KNOW it’s there! That’s all that counts. (Well, that and a bunch of build photos to prove it to unbelievers…)
Hi Jim, if I upload straight from my PC, does it get resized? Or do I still need to shrink it first?
Which reminds me of the story about some aircraft modeler who built some US bomber which had a low fuselage. Since some judges used dentists mirrors to get a peek up into opened wheel wells, bomb bays et.c he built it with open bomb doors and a member of the aircrew doing “number two” over the inside edge of the open bomb bay …
He knew it was there and every judge with a dentist mirror got a good look too …
Hi folks. Playing around to test functions, liking the new playground so far!
