Jet Ski Social Ride How to post on Jet Ski Club

Starting a New Topic

Go to the board where you wish to post and click on the New Topic button (positioned by default at both the top and the bottom of the board), which will take you to the Start New Topic screen.
While this presents a number of options, the two most important are the Subject field and main text area for the message itself.
Enter your subject and start typing (or paste) your message in the main text area.
Once you are happy with your message, you can post it by clicking the Post button and/or preview it first by using the Preview button.

Replying to a Topic or Poll

To post a message in an existing topic, click on the Reply button which is located both at the top and bottom of the topic. When replying to a topic it is not necessary to enter anything in the subject field unless you wish to change what is already there. To vote in a poll, you simply have to select your chosen option(s) and then click on Submit Vote. You may also be able to do other things with the post, such as attaching a file.

Standard Posting Options

Message icon - This drop-down menu allows users to change the default icon for the subject line to something matching the mood or purpose of the post.

Bulletin Board code - Bulletin Board Code (or BBC) is the essential tool for formatting and changing the appearance of posts. While it affects the plain text in much the same way as the formatting tools in any word processor, the main message field does not behave in a WYSIWYG manner, so users should preview their messages if they need to see what the post will look like when posted.
WYSIWYG - What You See Is What You Get. Instead of BBCodes, the effects on the text appear in the text window. Switch WYSIWIG on and off using the WYSIWYG Toggle View button Toggle View.

Additional Options


Notify me of replies - Users should check this to subscribe to e-mail notification of replies to the topic.
Return to this topic - Users should check this to return to the topic (instead of the message index) after posting.
Don't use smileys - Users should check this to prevent certain character combinations in their posts from being parsed and rendered as smileys.

Attachments - If enabled, this feature allows users to attach files to their posts in the same way as most e-mail clients. Users simply have to browse to the relevant files on their computer before selecting Post. Multiple attachments, up to the limit set by the administrator, can be added to a single post by selecting the Additional Attachments link. Users can delete their attachments or add more by modifying their posts. The permitted file types and sizes are set by the forum administrator. Some forums may display image attachments in line with the post or show them as thumbnails below the post.

We all love to see each others photos from their Jet Ski adventures. Please feel welcome to share as many as you like :)

When posting photos the best size is around 800 wide x 600 high.

For youtube videos just post the link you get when you click share on You Tube.

Starting a New Poll

A poll is basically a topic with an added question and voting options, started by selecting New Poll instead of New Topic as described above. To post a poll, it is necessary to fill out the Question field and at least two of the Options fields, in addition to the Subject and Message fields required by a standard topic. The user then fills in additional options to suit their own needs. Please note that only the message can be seen when previewing the poll.
To offer more than five choices in a poll, users should simply select Add Option as many times as desired.


Quoting a Post

There are two ways of replying to a post by quoting it. The first option is to click on the Quote button on the top right-hand side of the relevant post. The second option is to select the Reply button which will take you to the Post reply screen. On this page you can quote a post from the Topic Summary located below the message editor. Simply click on Insert Quote next to the relevant post.

Modifying  a Post
To modify a post, select the Modify link or the Modify inline.gif icon and make your changes.


Please note some users may not be able to do this on their mobile phones. we have a new app for posting on here coming at the end of January'16 to fix this.


Here is a great video about posting photos
