View Full Version : Beginners Guide to Posting a Response to a Post

07-26-2014, 12:20 AM
Okay... so now you've read a post and want to add your input;
here's a tutorial to get you started on contributing to the forum...

This is a snapshot of what you'd be typically seeing after reading a post:

For this example we're going to chose to "quote" the text from the post we're responding to, so we'll click the "Reply With Quote" text.
One reason for this is it makes it clear to others which post exactly we're actually responding to, since sometimes there are multiple posts above ours that
we could be commenting on...


So when you chose "Reply With Quote", it will generate a "quote" of the text portion of the response before ours... then under that generated text
you'll add your input...
Now if you like the way it looks, just click "Post Quick Reply" and your input will be posted to the Forum!

The "Go Advanced" text link gives you the option of adding pictures or attachments, giving you a preview of your post, and more advanced features.
Or, if you don't like the way things look and want to completely start over, just click the "Cancel".

But for this example we'll just choose to "Post Quick Reply" and send it to the Koiphen Forum.


And here's how our response looks!


It's that simple! We look forward to your contributions to Koiphen and if you have any questions, always feel free to ask
a Moderator or Administrator for help.
