    yeah the inline youtube links from the old board using the old tags are different now.... new posts will work fine, old ones probably will now because of the old bbcode...

    Just noticed that I can not edit the subject line. So if a game was to be sold, how does one add Sold to the subject line?

    Not sure if you will have it available but on the top of your post there might be a drop down called thread tools and an option called Edit Thread. If not don't worry about it and just bump your for sale thread and mention that it is **SOLD** and I will take care of the rest like I always have been.

    The site looks awesome guys!

    Hey Derek,
    One thing I've noticed is the "post in line" option is gone and, as a result, a lot of the step-by-step stuff I've posted is sorat lost. All the pics are still there, but grouped into a big pile at the end of the post.

    I tried inserting links from Flikr today to see if that helped, but my links are not wokirng either.

    Probably another bug to work out.

    Thanks again guys.

    Adriano

    Check your email Drano, i sent you a screen shot of how I link images from my flickr account/albums. It use to be so much easier but flickr has been getting worse and worse when it comes to getting the proper URL code you need to post in order to embed inside the IMG tags.

    We also now have a "PREFIX" so instead of changing the title, we change the PREFIX to be "SOLD", it looks better that way too!

    I just changed a few of the threads in the for sale section so you guys can see what the prefix's look like. You will see how it is so much easier to read, and it is far more consistent ... in the beginning mods can help by changing the thread title and prefix to help out....

    I just finished updating 26 pages in regards to the prefixes in the PINBALLS FOR SALE section. Will get around to doing the PINBALLS WANTED and other classifieds section shorty so that everything will be consistent and clean going forward.

    Wow thanks, mike!

    Makes me wonder.. with these little prefixes, do we really need all the classified sections? Or should we condense it down to one "Pinball Classifieds"? I guess that would only work if there was a way to sort by prefix

    There is an option you can click on the bottom that allows you to filter by prefix so we could merge the FOR SALE and WANTED into one section but let me clean up the WANTED section first before we do that.

    How do you "quote" someone if you want to respond to something specific in their post? All I see for options is "Report", "Like" and "Reply".

    It looks like by default when you hit reply to someone's specific posts it will automatically quote it.

    Looks like you can also just highlight a block of text and it'll pop up an option to reply, kind of like on pinside. Neat.

    I just noticed the SPECIAL WHEN LIT icon to show if a section has unread posts in it.
    Clever!
