    Go To Top Of PageCreating a Hyperlink in your message

    You can easily add a hyperlink to your message.


    All that you need to do is type the URL (http://www.generation-edge.info/), and it will automatically be converted to a URL (http://www.generation-edge.info/)!


    The trick here is to make sure you prefix your URL with the http://, https:// or file://


    You can also add a mailto link to your message by typing in your e-mail address.

    This Example:
    rockingrobin69@generation-edge.info
    Outputs this:
    rockingrobin69@generation-edge.info


    Another way to add hyperlinks is to use the [url]linkto[/url] tags

    This Example:
    [url]http://www.generation-edge.info/[/url] takes you home!
    Outputs This:
    http://www.generation-edge.info/ takes you home!

    If you use this tag: [url="linkto"]description[/url] you can add a description to the link.

    This Example:
    Take me to [url="http://www.generation-edge.info/"]Generation-Edge.info Forum[/url]
    Outputs This:
    Take me to Generation-Edge.info Forum
    This Example:
    If you have a question [url="rockingrobin69@generation-edge.info"]E-Mail Me[/url]
    Outputs This:
    If you have a question E-Mail Me

    You can make clickable images by combining the [url="linkto"]description[/url] and [img]image_url[/img] tags
    This Example:
    [url="http://www.generation-edge.info/"][img]http://www.generation-edge.info/GenerationEdgeLogo1black.jpg[/img][/url]

    Changing a lost password is simple, assuming that e-mail features are turned on for this forum. All of the pages that require you to identify yourself with your Username and Password carry a "lost Password" link that you can use to have a code e-mailed instantly to your e-mail address of record that will allow you to create a new password. Because of the Encryption that we use for your password, we cannot tell you what your password is.

    Go To Top Of PageCan I be notified by e-mail when there are new posts?

    Yes, the Subscription feature allows you to subscribe to the entire Board, individual Categories, Forums and/or Topics, depending on what the administrator of this site allows. You will receive an e-mail notifying you of a post that has been made to the Category/Forum/Topic that you have subscribed to. There are four levels of subscription:

    - Board Wide Subscription
    If you can subscribe to an entire Board, you'll get a notification for any posts made within all the forums inside that board.

    - Category Wide Subscription
    You can subscribe to an entire Category, which will notify you if there was any posts made within any topic, within any forum, within that Category.

    - Forum Wide Subscription
    If you don't want to subscribe to an entire Category, you can subscribe to a single forum. This will notify you of any posts made within any topic, within that forum.

    - Topic Wide Subscription
    More conveniently, you can subscribe to just an individual topic. You will be notified of any post made within that topic.
    Each level of subscription is optional. The administrator can turn On/Off each level of subscription for each Category/Forum/Topic.
    To Subscribe or Unsubscribe from any level of subscription, you can use the "My Subscriptions" link, located near the top of each page to manage your subscriptions. Or you can click on the subscribe/unsubscribe icons (Subscribe UnSubscribe) for that Category/Forum/Topic you want to subscribe/unsubscribe to/from.
