I am not sure how everyone is using the forum.. how you find new posts, how you see who is online, etc. etc. but after completely integrating the old forum data into the new one and getting into the nuts and bolts of it, I feel that I may have some insight into the best way to maneuver throughout the forum. Here are a few tips: Best Way to See New Posts Set your homepage to http://www.smokingmeatforums.com and use the center block just below the news to see what new posts have been submitted. I have it set to show 25 of the latest topics and in my opinion, that works better than hitting the New Posts. Who is Online Right Now? Directly to the right of the Latest Topics you can see who is online right now. To see where they are in the forum just click on the "Currently Active: XX link just below the Who's Online heading. Who is On Chat Right Now? To see who is on chat (without logging into chat) Look in the box directly below Who's Online. The chat block will show each room and who is in each one. Customize You User Title, Signature, Etc. Express yourself a little bit by having a unique signature, a great avatar and a great user title under your Username. To change your user Title from the default click on UserCP in the top left Navbar and then on Edit Profile. In the Custom User Title block type in a unique slogan, phrase or something that tells us more about you. Allows up to 25 characters so spend some time on this since quality is more important that quantity. I will add to this as I think of things.. until then.. enjoy and if you have any problems just shoot me a PM with a short, definitive title and I will get to it.
