FAQ for the Forum

Postby Aaron Goldsmith » Fri May 16, 2008 11:05 am

How do I add my Car Number, Club or Location?
User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Profile

How do I Add a signature to your posts?
User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Signature

How do I Add an Avatar to your name area?
User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Avatar

How do I change my Date Format?
User Control Panel > Board Prefrences > Global Settings > Date Format

Hey the time is wrong, it's not DST but the clock is an hour off!
Set to no: User Control Panel > Board Prefrences > Global Settings > DST is in Effect

How do I change my Password?
See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=9

I'm a Club Moderator, how do I manage who has access to our Club Message Board?
If you're a Club Moderator who needs to approve requests to enter your club forum you do that in:
User Control Panel->Usergroups->Manage Groups->Manage Users
Look for the folks waiting for approval, they will probably be at the end of the list. So if you have a big club, you'll have to go to the last page.

I'm a new member of a Club and want to request access to our club message board, what do i do?
User Control Panel->Usergroups->Edit Memberships
You click the little dot next to the club you belong to, in the non-memberships area and choose join selected at the bottom. A club moderator will then have to approve or deny your request. It's a good idea to send the Club Rep a message so he knows you requested access. Once your approved the club forum will appear on the main page for you.

How does one easily subscribe to a thread or category?
You click subscribe topic at the bottom of the page.

How do i do all the formatting I see people doing with their posts?
faq.php?mode=bbcode

How is the "Members" listing set-up ... doesn't quite seem to be by first name, alphabetically?
It's sorted by date joined by default, if you click on the column header it will sort by that column.

How come you guys want me to use my real name?! I use this other name on all my other forums!
Because unlike other forums, we all see each other once or twice a month and we don't want to have to call you CoolEvo69 in person. Plus it's used for registration.

Nope, I didn't make a sub-forum for any of the club that ran their own.

Which is:
Team Blew
PFM
SNAX

When I initially looked at it it was by date joined, but if you click on the colum header it will sort by that colum.

just noticed if you open a thread, at the upper right there's a link that says, First Unread Post. Nice for the multipage threads.

In fact, there's a "first unread post" button from the index page as well. It's just to the left of the thread title and looks like a little sheet of paper with an arrow pointing down and to the right. So, no need to even open the thread. Perfect!

Pat.

It's in off topic.

There is also a search box at the top where you can type in "F1 Challenge" or "Podium Picker" and you'd get a ton of links to it. If you click on Advanced search you can get a ton of options for searching for something.

I took the ADs down temporarily, they were trying to load from the main solo2.com site and the main solo2.com site wasn't answering.

Edit.
Ad's are back up.

I think I'm going to update the forum software this weekend, so there may be some down time on Sunday.

This information appears to be incorrect. No editing option exist after loggin in on the main Solo2 page and when I try to edit preferrences here (under User CP -> Profile -> Edit Account Settings) it asks me for my exiting password but doesn't give me a chance to update anything. Help please...

The information in the link quoted is correct. Go to solo2.com. Log in. Click on the Edit Your Profile link near the top of the page. Scroll down to where it says Password and Verification.

Also if it is possible Aaron, can you put an extra comment when people login to the forums that the passwords are CaseSensitive? Seems people get caught out by that one every once in a while.

Doesn't work for me.

-I log in at Solo2 and nothing appears to change vs. prior to log in (no "Edit Your Profile" link exits) I triple checked the page, I'm enclosing a screen capture post login with my failed keyword search. It's simply not there...
-I try to register and it tells my I already exist so the problem is not lack of an account.
-I try to log in using an incorrect password and it tells me I have a password error so I know the temp password I tried in attempt #1 worked (I'm aware of case sensitivity).

Any other suggestions?
-Joel

Joel,

That sound like a common problem with the site. Try clearing your browser history and cookies then try logging onto the solo2.com site again.

I agree, clear any cookies associated with solo2.com and www.solo2.com. Make sure that any "privacy" or "security" software you have isn't blocking cookies. Most have a "whitelist" where you can specify trustworthy sites.

You will know when you have success because in the upper left hand corner where the login link used to be it will say "Hello, Joel Payne"

Who are you? :?

You may want to establish another account using your real name and delete this one. Folks, on this board anyway, tend to be much more responsive when they know who you are. :thumbup:

Here is a link to the clubs page... http://solo2.com/clubs.htm

It would probably be best to do as George suggested and change your name in this forum to your real name. Then, since you don't need to belong to a specific club your first year, come out to some events and get to know some of the people and what clubs they belong to before deciding. Each club has different levels of participation and as you'd expect people tend to group together with like interests.
