FAQ- Frequent questions- forums, topics and posts

Forums, Topics and Posts


What is a community bulletin board?

A community bulletin board is an online discussion site. It's sometimes also called a 'board' or 'forums'. It may contain several categories, consisting of forums, topics and individual posts. The content on a community bulletin board is often created by the users or members of the site. They are used for support, to share ideas and for a variety of different topics.

How is all this structured?

The bulletin board as a whole contains various categories (broad subject areas), which themselves contain forums (more specific subject areas) which contain topics (conversations or discussions) which are made up of individual posts (where a user writes something).

Usually the community home page has a list of categories and forums, with basic statistics for each - including the number of topics and posts, and which member posted the most recent message. This can be replaced with an activity stream which shows a stream of the latest posts, photos and other items shared.

How do I find my way around?

When you click on a forum's name, you are taken to the list of topics it contains. A topic is a conversation between members or guests. Each topic starts out as a single post and grows as replies and comments are added by different users.

To start a new topic simply click on the + New Topic button (you may need the right permissions to do this).

Threads can be ordered in many different ways. The default is to have the topic with the most recent activity at the top. But you can easily change this ordering, for example to have the topic with the most posts at the top. Simply click on Filter menu at the top right of the topic list. The Filter menu will provide you with the options you need to sort the current page

Multi-page views

When there are more topics to display than will fit on a single page, you may see the 'Page' box, which contains page numbers. This indicates that the list of topics has been split over two or more pages. This method of splitting lists of items over many pages is used throughout the community.

What are sticky topics?

'Sticky' topics are topics determined to be important by moderators or administrators. They are listed at the top of the topic list and remain 'stuck' to the top of the listing, even if they haven't had any posts recently. Their purpose is to keep important information visible and accessible at all times.

How do I read a topic?

To read a topic, click on its title. Each post in a topic is created by a member or a guest. You'll see some brief information about the member who created the topic to the left of post message.

To post a reply to an existing topic, click on the Post Reply button. If this button does not appear, it could mean that you are not logged in as a member, or that you do not have permission to reply, or that the topic has been closed to new replies.

There will also be a Reply box at the bottom of the page. This is where you can quickly enter a reply as well. If you click the Quote link on any reply, the content of that post will automatically be added to the Reply box for you. Clicking Quote on multiple posts allows you to multi-quote those posts in a single reply.

How do I find out more about members?

To view information about a particular member, click on the user name. This will take you to their public profile page.

What is the Navigation Bar?

The navigation bar at the top of every page has links to help you move around. A 'breadcrumb' area at the top left shows where you are now. A form on the right allows you to quickly login. This allows quick movement from one section of the site to the other.

Can I change the way the community looks?

You may be able to change the styling of the community by using the style changer in the bottom left of the page. This lets you choose different styles or themes which change the color scheme and appearance of the community.

Re: FAQ- Frequent questions- forums, topics and posts

Hello Scott,

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but my '14 Overland was pelted in a hailstorm this week and heavily damaged. My glass half full approach is that I can upgrade to an SRT hood. I know you sold yours, but wondered if you had any suggestions for finding an OEM?

Your local dealer or body shop would be the best bet to avoid shipping. Ebay or www.car-part.com woild have used hoods

How do I complain about a member who advertised OEM wheels and sold me replicas?

Re: FAQ- Frequent questions- forums, topics and posts

Hey guys/gals. Terrific site, very useful and I've just became a supporting member. Thanks!! Just a suggestion for the easier navigation through the forums. Is there any way to change the color of visited hyperlinks? It is very useful to see where I have visited before via a slightly different color hyperlink. Right now, everything is white. Some bold or standard, but still all white. Is there something on my end that could be done so as not to disrupt others if they like the all white thing?
Thanks!! Best Regards,

Keys

If I'm understanding you correctly... thread links you haven't visited, or have new posts added after a visit will be in bold text. Thread links you've visited and have not been posted to since your last visit will be in normal text.

There is no way for forum members to change the link colors.

Yes, the visited thread links do change to normal white text instead of bold white, but the thing is, there is plenty of normal white text mixed in with the unvisited bold white thread links. For example, the thread starter of each thread is listed underneath the unvisited bolded thread title, but in normal white text. Also, the number of pages count is in normal white text also. So, while it CAN be navigated after closer inspection successfully, it is still more difficult to differentiate visited and non visited threads. I think it would make navigating much easier if it were possible to change the color slightly for visited threads and forums. Just a matter of if the administration or site mgmt. is agreeable or against making the change. I know it is simple html tags to change visited hyperlinks color, but I don't if vbulletin allows it.

That would be something to take up with the owner, Scottina06.

Personally, this has never been an issue for me.

Yeah. I get it. It's probably my eyes. I just started wearing glasses for up close stuff and I'm just looking for ways to make me see easier.

Re: FAQ- Frequent questions- forums, topics and posts

Not sure if I am in the correct forum posting but here goes:

We will be driving some back roads through central Nevada and cell phone coverage is not always available. What is the one or two spare parts you would carry for a 2008 Jeep limited with V8 hemi engine. I have never had any problems with this rig so I am just planing for worst case scenario. I suspect an electrical devise would be a good idea so any thoughts appreciated
