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.

Just curious, on items I have selected to follow, I'm not seeing any means to quickly locate the threads.

Manage Followed Content (links to http://thesandtrap.com/followed/ in the menu beneath your username in the top-right corner.

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?
