(I am so not good at doing the whole picture thing, but thought we could use a snazzy icon to maybe make this thread easier to notice.)

I've done a little searching, and don't think there is already a thread for specifically for this. I've been a Craftster for almost 2 years now, but there are still things I don't know how to do/use on this website. For instance... tables. Don't know what they're for, don't know how to use them.
Have you ever run into this problem? I got the idea of starting a thread where we could have detailed instructions, hopefully with pictures as well, that show how to do things that seem to come so easily to others. I was given the idea in the Ongoing Offer What You Have Swap. Here is the first thing I have to contribute, please feel free to post whatever you think is helpful information on how to do different things, or questions if something is not understandable.



How do I copy my entire last post if I'm in an Ongoing Swap to include all the images
If you go to your last post, and just copy it right there, you will lose all of your pictures. Instead, try this out:

Go to your last claim and click modify


It'll look like this after you click modify


Then highlight everything and copy.


and then you can just back out of that screen, or exit out, and paste it into new your post.

Forgot I have another one:
How do I post my pictures so they show right next to each other, instead of under each other?

I had to go into one of my old posts and experiment cause I've never tried this one before.
Normally when you post 2 pictures it would look like this:
Code:
[img width=375 height=500]http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/167891_10May10_100_1450.JPG[/img]

[img width=500 height=375]http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/167891_10May10_100_1455.JPG[/img]

That puts one directly under the other.

To make them post right next to each other, post both images directly next to each other with no space, like this:
Code:
[img width=375 height=500]http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/167891_10May10_100_1450.JPG[/img][img width=500 height=375]http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/167891_10May10_100_1455.JPG[/img]
Basically, back that second image tag mumbojumbo up, so that where one ends and the other begins there is no space. ][

To get more in a line, use the thumbnail version! Smiley

Oh, I have one for you, too!  You can use the Insert Code button to show examples of code in your posts (perfect for instructional threads like this one!).  It looks like this on the second layer of buttons

For example, I wanted to show someone how to type a shortened link, I could explain it and then show them this code sample:
Code:

MMmMm, tables!  Delicious tables.

Inserts a table.  It can't be used alone, or it makes no sense.
Code:
[table][/table]

Inserts a row into a table.  This also can't be used alone.
Code:
[tr][/tr]

Inserts a column into a table.  This also can't be used alone.
Code:
[td][/td]

Sample table:
Partner 1Partner 2Project Theme
sweets4everpixievalglitter
jungrrlbatgirlbirds

Built from this code:
Code:
[table]
[tr]
[td]Partner 1[/td]
[td]Partner 2[/td]
[td]Project Theme[/td]
[/tr]

Mare, would it make more sense if the table code was shown this way?

Sample table:
Code:
[table]
[tr][td]Partner 1[/td][td]Partner 2[/td][td]Project Theme[/td][/tr]

[tr][td]sweets4ever[/td][td]pixieval[/td][td]glitter[/td][/tr]

[tr][td]jungrrl[/td][td]batgirl[/td][td]birds[/td][/tr]
[/table]

Basically tr gives you a row, but you need tds for the colums.

You know what I could not figure out for the longest time too? Was how to get a URL to look like this instead of like this:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353414.0

You highlight the word you want to be the link, click that "Insert Hyperlink" icon above the winking face. Then its going to look like this

Code:
[url]this[/url]

you add an equals sign after the first URL

Code:
[url=]this[/url]

Then enter your link after the equals sign

Code:
[url=http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353414.0]this[/url]

And you get it looking lovely:

Ever making a partner list for a swap, or just want to link to a craftster's profile? I used to go to their profile, then enter the url address, but did you know you can just do this?

for example:

pixieval
You want to link to my profile?
Right above the smiley face with teeth, there is an icon of a person with a pink shirt on. Highlight my name, and then click on the pink shirt person. It will look like this:

... please feel free to post whatever you think is helpful information on how to do different things, or questions if something is not understandable.

I hope that I am posting my question in the correct place (it looks correct, but I don't see any other questions posted here...)

I have been slowly going through old posts in some of the completed projects boards, but since there are so many pages I can not get through them in one sitting. When I want to return to it, I may know that I was on page 80 of that board, but I have no idea how to "jump" to that page. Do I really have to hit 'next' and wait for the page to load, hit 'next' and wait for the page to load until I get to where I was or is there a faster way to navigate through the pages?

Thanks for any tips you may have!

There is currently no way setup to go right to a page on the board, what I do when I'm going through the boards is bookmark on my internet browser the last page I was on, if not I have to do the "next" wait, click "next"

This is no longer the case.  (Thanks, mods!)  There is a "jump to page" option with a drop-down now, to the right of the page number links.

Also, jungrrl told me you can manipulate the page numbers. If you look at the url it has a number at the end and you can manually change it to move pages. It's a big of guessing maybe but it works!

Thanks MareMare! I just tried the url suggestion and that will work well. It definitely will change a little as more pages get added, but it gets me close to where I was and is much faster than what I was doing!
