1. Multi-Quote

It grinds people's gears when you respond, minutes apart, to multiple users with multiple posts. This forum has the ability to let you respond to multiple posts inside of one post. It's called multi-quote, and it's useful, and virtually required.

 
Quote

 

Replying with a multi-quotation allows you to respond in line to another poster and include context to your replies or to reply to multiple posters within the same reply.

  1. Navigate to the posts you would like to respond to.
  2. At the bottom of each post, on the left, you will see the "+ Multi" button. Click it (it should change to a check mark) on every post you want to quote.
  3. When you are satisfied with your selections, click the "Quote n posts" button floating in the bottom right corner of your browser window to quote the posts.
  4. You'll be taken to the text editor with the posts you selected quoted.

 

2. Embed Videos

This forum will embed YouTube and Vimeo videos, and we strongly encourage you to embed videos of these types. Just paste the video URL on its own line, press return, and the video will be embedded. Here's a page with more detail and a video on how to embed videos: http://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos .

3. Search

Please search for an existing topic before starting a new one. Even if a thread is years old, we'd rather you bump the old thread with a new post than to start a new, virtually identical thread. This forum has been around for almost a decade - there are a lot of topics.

4. Set an Avatar

You're sent a PM about this when you sign up. If you don't set one, one will be set for you when you hit between 10-25 posts, typically.

5. Add your Name

Just a suggestion:

Have you thought about adding an automatic multi-quote function if a user posts more than 1 post in a set amount of time?  That would eliminate a lot of the multiple posts without causing an awkward user experience.  I have used forums with this and it's a cool feature.

Not an option on the current platform. Talk to us in a month please.

As promised… this feature now exists.

6. Watch the Line Spacing, Please!
On IPS (the software that runs this site), a single press of the return key starts a new paragraph with a blank line in between. There's almost never any need to press return twice. (Shift-return moves you to the next line if you ever need to make a tighter list with single-line spacing.)

This is a new addition to the list.

@iacas ... I can't get the @ user name function to work like it did on the previous site.  How does this work on this site.

@No Mulligans it works the same way. You type the username, wait a second, and select the username from the menu.

I have problems with this on my computer.  I have many times put the @ symbol and then started typing a name, waited and not had it come up, it can be temperamental.  I just tried it again and it did not work.

Thanks, maybe I just need to wait longer

Did you try it again @No Mulligans

It's been working great for me the last couple weeks. Just make sure to give it a couple seconds after the you type the @ and the username.

    • I read about 7 pages of the comments on this interesting topics, but not all (yet), so forgive me if I am duplicating something already said. I voted that physical is most important to golf and I agree that it is most important by far. But,what good players view as physical, and I don't blame them for viewing this as such, can also largely be a mental issue for less skilled players. Things that are automatic for some, are not yet so for others and they need to think about those first, or they don't have a chance... I won't compare a player to another one, but instead one player (namely me) at different times, yet in similar conditions. * Can someone tell me why I shot 75 and 111 less than a week apart (the 111 was on a more difficult course but still... it was the highest score in probably 8-10 years for me)? I was the same guy with the same physical abilities, but I made really poor choices, compounded errors with more errors and in the process lost the swing completely: shanks, tops, thins, etc... The silver lining was putting which is and remained my strength, even on that day...  * Can someone tell me why the first time my name was called on a tee box in an official Norcal (NCGA) tournament, I was shaking so badly, I nearly whiffed my drive which ended in a terrible spot, causing me to re-tee? It's some form of pressure, one I was totally unfamiliar with and which no longer affects me that badly. However, even at the highest level in golf, think Ryder Cup, the first tee shot is the most nerve wracking shot, for most people. You might say pressure is physical (tension, shaking, sweating, etc...), but it is controlled by the mind and by experience, so one can train for it, to some extent: breathing exercises, putting drills that force you to hole out x shots in a row or you start from scratch, playing worst ball with oneself, for example... * Can someone tell me why in casual rounds and less so in competitive rounds, I sometimes forget my pre-shot routine and don't put myself behind the ball and then step in, but rather just step in and hit a great shot, 10 degrees offline to the left? Lack of focus and/or discipline, which is a mental error, leading to a physical one (being lined up wrong) * Can someone tell me why, all of sudden, I completely lost any ability I previously had to hit fairway woods (there is another thread in "Instruction and Playing Tips" about this? I think I finally got it back, and while the practical cause is physical, the real root of the problem is mental. Not checking the ball position, hanging back because of it and losing balance (to my heels) in the process. All physical problems that can be overcome by an assertive mind. Also, what about the power of visualization? Look at Jason Day actively and consciously closing his eyes prior to any swing. Also, do you see in your mind the line a well struck putt is going to take? I do, and unless my read is completely off (it happens once in a while, or the putt flattens at the hole and I didn't read that), for the most part that's what happens. There is no doubt that our conscious and unconscious mind drives all physical activity and perhaps we qualify everything unconscious as physical and the swing certainly is too fast to consciously drive it in its minute details, but the conscious mind also has a role in controlling the outcome. YMMV.
    • Sir Charles can swing this way now too. .his mental game is so strong he doesn't need both hands. (sorry ... couldn't help it)
    • A friend is planning, I think he's booked us at the Duck's in Aberlady.  I know its a small village, but do you have any comments?  
    • Completely stupid point worth (unfortunately) less than the time I spent replying. The physical skills to do so.
    • I may not be  expert on the courses (yet) but when it comes to pubs I'm your man!
