Default FORUM HOW-TO's

Hi all.

Don't let all the features and options of the new software intimidate you. There are still only three main functions of a forum. The new software works the same way as the old software. If you can do these three things you are off and running. Take your time and explore all the new features of TOTV little by little. It's really not that different than the old software. Some things have moved around and changed but the basic forum functions the same way.

1. Create a new thread
2. Reply to a post
3. Save your reply.


Spell Checker - You will need to install iSpell. Click on the spell check button to install. After it is installed it will pull up a spell check window. Also works on any web page or form.

I went to delete a post so I could start over and rewrite it but could not find the delete option. Is this no longer available or did I just not see it?

Default Spell Checker?

I have no spell checker where your example says it should be. Instead, my screen shows up and down arrows "increase/decrease size". Aongside those arrows is "switch editor mode".

Default Spell Checker??

I went to install Spell Checker and the "button" to install it was not on my screen. I had the "Switch Editor Mode" icon and the "Increase/Decrease Size" icons but no spell checker icon. Any suggestions?

My wife used her full name as her screen name. She would like to change her SN, I have tried registering her with a new name but email address in use would not allow. Is it possible to change scree name once registered? thanks in advance

Default Mixed up posts

Am I missing something? When I looked at the posts today, the sequence was random. I reset my options to see newest post first. No difference. When I open a thread, the posts are mixed up, 2010,2007,2012,2008 etc etc.
Help......
