If you look above, in the site's menu bar, you'll note that I've added a series of "How-To" articles. There are only four to five right now, but as members determine what they'd like to see in a How-To article, I'll add more.

In fact… if there's anything - even little things - that you'd like to see written up and possibly filmed in a How-To article, please post it here.

How about how to embed an article link in a word or two?  I used to be able to do it on the other site..

so something like.

yahoo article <--  and clicking on this gets you there instead of having to past http://yahoo.com/article or what ever

makes the site look much cleaner when done this way IMO

Doubtful. That's exactly the same. Select the text and then click the "link" looking icon in the toolbar.

Like this: Analyzr, Lowest Score Wins, Evolvr.

How to Become a Supporter

How to Embed an Image

 

I agree with the embedded option. I got stuck the other night loading a swing into my My Swing thread. Something appeared to have changed. I used to use Vimeo embedded option, but that didnt work. So I resorted to YouTube instead to get it to finally work. Its all good, but I was searching for this how to info and couldnt find it.  

Also, maybe there could just be a How To forum for this type of thing... to ask forum How To questions. Just a thought..

Is there a way to edit a My Swing thread ny the author? I was trying to clean mine up a bit and didnt notice any edit or remove options. My thread looks a bit messy with my failed postings and stuff. I got awy from the My Swing for a bit since I was using Evolvr, but want to get back to using My Swing more.

Thanks!

When using "Search" could the option in advance search for "following topics" be added?

Thought this would merge with my above post?

Also, Posts used to be numbered for referencing?

I agree with Mike - embedding an image in a location in your post other than the bottom is currently escaping me.

Watch the How-To video on embedding videos.

I don't think there needs to be a whole forum for it. None of them have been more than a few steps. Plus they have videos.

How to link to another thread.  It used to be via the "<>" icon, and may still be, but I can't figure it out.

Select the text and click the "link" looking icon.

That's it. Should be pretty obvious from there. If you mean something else, other than linking text like this, please let me know.

Okay. We can do that one. Probably later today.

Posts are no longer numbered, unfortunately. I'll make a video showing how to link specifically to a post. Short version: click the little "share" icon. It looks like this:

Your posts weren't merged because someone else posted in between them.

Thanks, Erik! The new How-To post for the embedded video was very helpful. Thanks!

http://thesandtrap.com/how-to/link-to-topics/ (linking to topics and posts in two ways)

There's "How to… Become a Supporter" and what else?

"How to… Follow Content" is a shorter one I could do.

What else do you guys and gals want to see?

    • Going to look for good opportunities to back the US to win at a number much shorter than the pre-cup odds.........
    • After 30 years of weightlifting and 21 years of doing and teaching different styles of Yoga I feel totally confident and qualified to answer the question of whether weightlifting and golf go together.  My experience over all those years has me answer without hesitation that it truly depends on the individual.  Some people should not be lifting heavy weights period and are better off using  their own body weight to increase strength. This can be for a  variety of reasons, but there are many ways of increasing your strength without heavy weights if you are one of those people, especially in sports such as golf.  Some people  will benefit from heavy lifting and if that works for them , they should  continue, but to think everyone should be doing it is without merit. I have personally witnessed many bodies that did not take well to weights.  As one of the posters said and I repeat. If you lift heavy consider a flexibility program to complement  the strength training. Putting heavy weights on our back compresses the spine which is already being compressed from gravity over the years and we need to do things to counter that or it can lead to back problems which is what happened to me later in life. Fortunately I found ways to decompress.   
    • It's still the 11th, @Asheville! 🙂
    • Today, the 12th and tomorrow the 13th, we’ll look at the specific Rules for Bunkers and Putting Greens. Rule 12 - Bunkers The Golden Oldie that you cannot escape a bunker for free still stands. Thank you, Lew Blakey. http://www.generalarea.org/  Later in Rules 15 and 16, we’ll see a few restrictions on taking free relief in bunkers. Purpose of Rule: Rule 12 is a specific Rule for bunkers, which are specially prepared areas intended to test the player’s ability to play a ball from the sand.  To make sure the player confronts this challenge, there are some restrictions on touching the sand before the stroke is made and on where relief may be taken for a ball in a bunker. But, what exactly is a “bunker”? Let’s read the Definition: A specially prepared area of sand, which is often a hollow from which turf or soil was removed. These are not part of a bunker: A lip, wall or face at the edge of a prepared area and consisting of soil, grass, stacked turf or artificial materials, Soil or any growing or attached natural object inside the edge of a prepared area (such as grass, bushes or trees), Sand that has spilled over or is outside the edge of a prepared area, and All other areas of sand on the course that are not inside the edge of a prepared area (such as deserts and other natural sand areas or areas sometimes referred to as waste areas). Bunkers are one of the five defined areas of the course. A Committee may define a prepared area of sand as part of the general area (which means it is not a bunker) or may define a non-prepared area of sand as a bunker. When a bunker is being repaired and the Committee defines the entire bunker as ground under repair, it is treated as part of the general area (which means it is not a bunker). What’s in the Rule: 12.1 When Ball Is in Bunker 12.2 Playing Ball in Bunker 12.3 Specific Rules for Relief for Ball in Bunker https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=12 Rule 12 Interpretations: 12.2a/1 Improvement Resulting from Removing Loose Impediment or Movable Obstruction from a Bunker 12.2b(3)/1 Player Is Allowed to Smooth Sand in a Bunker to Care for the Course After Taking Relief Outside the Bunker 12.2b/1 Rule 12.2b Applies to a Mound of Sand from an Animal Hole in a Bunker 12.2b/2 Whether Player May Probe in Bunker 12.2b/3 Rule 12.2 Continues to Apply When Player Has Lifted His or Her Ball from Bunker to Take Relief but Has Not Yet Decided Whether to Take Relief In or Out of Bunker https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=interp&section=rule&rulenum=12
