How to Display Your Post << Read before Posting
How to Display Your Post:

Section 1. Show & Tell

....if you are a bit on the new side of posting on a forum board, then you really need to read this.
Not all forum boards use the same LayOut for their postings. So please don't take this type LayingOut and apply it to another Forum Board as you may get banned on that other Forum Board (as I have been in the past)
Hi there, I am BaZZa101 and I currently Mod' in the Graphic's section of this Great Forum Board. There is only one thing that really gets my attention with-in a post, NO it is not "Free SEX" written in the title, but it is the Visual Appeal of the Post. I then look at the Information that is given about the product that is on the post, then I look at the DownLoad Links.
So these 3 things could be the difference between a Post and a Great Post.

1. Images
2. Information
3. DownLoad Links

Lets talk about number 1. Images first.

a) If you make a post and don't have an Image I will put it in the Recycle bin and it will stay there until you Edit the post and place in an appropriate Image.
b) If you make a post and only post an ThumbSized Image, members may not think much of it, the same goes if there are too many images posted. It is a known fact that if a member likes your post then they will look for your next / other postings, this in turns gives you a good wrap and you become popluar.
c) So posting Images have to be Informative and of a good size. In this collection you will see some different types of Images.

Computer Desktop Wallpaper Pack 95

This one I do like because it is a collage of 8 Thumbnails that represent the images inside of the pack.

Urban Ruins - Backgrounds

This one I don't really like at all because it is just too scattered, the thumbnails are all different sizes and too small.

Digital Artwork FC Pack 04

This one is Ok and I do like the Concept of the Different sized Thumbnails, I feel that it would have been better if the thumbnails looked more like the thumbnails in the first (Computer Desktop Wallpaper Pack 95).

40 Magnificent Animals HQ Wallpapers

This one is just not good enough, the image is too small and one can hardly see what is shown.

Only bottoms wallpapers pack by joh

This one has too many images in the post and really you only need the first section, the rest just make the post too long to read and it is more likely to turn members away from the post.
Lets talk about number 2. Information.

a) If you don't have any information about the product that your post is about, how will members know what to expect?
b) You can always have too much information or too little information, but information is required in some form.
c) Some forms of information is shown in the following collection of posts.

Vincent van Gogh's picture collection [2034 works]

This one is just ok but still not good. The given information should have been in a Quote Box and there is some information missing actually .. What is the total size of the DownLoad Files.

18 Videohive Project Pack For After Effects Vol 17

This one show the use of the Quote Box even though using the Quote Box this way is not very attractive and again this post is not showing the member what the total DonwLoad File Size is.

3D Style GraphicRiver Collection

This post is one that I fixed up to show a nicer use of the Information that is similarly shown in the above post. Here I replaced the Quote Box information with a collection of Live / Hot Link instead, this way the Information site links don't look like a normal DownLoad File Link. It also makes the post a far bit shorter.

ThemeForest Premium HTML CSS Site Templates

This post is a very good representation of a Great Post. It has a standard Image for a Template Type posting, the information section clearly shows what the member needs to know, the DownLoad Files are neat and easy to see. Also there are little Icon Images to show what section is what, Information & DownLoad.

Computer Desktop Wallpapers Collection (86)

This is also a Great Post and as you can see it is different to the post above. Being a Wallpaper Post the amount of information shown is all that is required, Wallpaper Size/s & DownLoad File Size. The Image is also a good standard image for Wallpaper Type Posting.
Lets talk about number 3. DownLoad Links.

a) There is to be NO Linking to Scam - Pay DownLoad Sites, the ones that ask you to complete a quiz first before you get the active DownLoad Link, & there is to be NO Linking or Redirecting to other Forum Sites.
b) DownLoad File Links are to be Direct Link to Normal File Hosting Sites are are NOT to be Hot Links like "Press Here To DownLoad" the DownLoad Link has to be the web address like "http:// depositfiles .com /files /foqvc2qss" with or with-out the download file name.
c) All DownLoad File Links must be CODED, if they are not CODED then the post will be sent to the Recycle Bin for you to fix up. Here is a collection of different forms of CODED links.

Computer Desktop Wallpaper Pack 95

This one shows a grouping of Multiple Links that are avaiable from the same File Host.

Vincent van Gogh's picture collection [2034 works]

This post show a collection of Split Files for the one post. One needs to DownLoad all Split File parts to get the whole Complete File.

Heroes of Marvel Comics Wallpaper Collection

This one has no DownLoad links at all and is actually a very bad post for this section. This type of posting is more for Showing a Few Different Images like "Here are some Photos of my Dog". This one is just Laid out incorrectly as it should have used Linked ThumbNail Images to show the post.
So now that you have seen the different types of postings I feel that you should be able to understand why I have said that ThemeForest Premium HTML CSS Site Templates & Computer Desktop Wallpapers Collection (86) postings make a Great Post for the Graphic Section of this Forum.
I have stated a few different terms and I know that I have not expanded on them in this post. So this post is just the First Section of How to Code your Post and I will add the next section tomorrow.

Re: How to Display Your Post << Read before Posting
The (Advanced)Message Window's Menu Explained
As you can see there is a collection of icons that have Universal meaning, plus there are some that are not that well known. Regardless of this fact I will explain each of the Icons.

http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/4544/menu01a.jpg Remove Text Formatting Options of a High-Lighted word. Example >High-Light the word & press the icon> Example .
http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/8657/menu02t.jpg Chose the Display Type of Font you want to use.
http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/5461/menu03.jpg Chose the Display Size of the Font that is in use.
http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/5264/menu04.jpg Chose the Display Colour of the Font that is in use. This Icon has 2 functions 1) Press on the Icons "A" and what ever Colour that is shown in the Colour Bar under the "A" will be applied to any High-Lighted text 2) Press on the tiny down arrow to the side of the "A" and a Colour Palette will open up, where you will then be able to Select a New Colour, when this happens the Colour Bar will change colour to show the New Select colour.
http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/4074/menu05g.jpg Drop down menu that will show you a collection of "Smiles". These Smiles are normally shown to the side of the Message Window.
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/515/menu06.jpg Add an Attachment to you post, like a Picture that is stored on your computer or a text file, etc.
http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/566/menu07x.jpg The Undo - Redo Icons. The Arrow pointing to your left is "Undo" so if you make a mistake, like delete your whole post instead of just a word, using this Icon will Restore what was just deleted. The "Redo" Icon will just in effect undo the "undo" icon, so the deleted text will be re-deleted again.
http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/4111/menu08a.jpg The "Bold" icon will make any high-lighted text Bold
http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/2069/menu09v.jpg The "Italic" icon will make any high-lighted text Italic
http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/8861/menu10v.jpg The "Underline" icon will Underline any high-lighted text
http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/5435/menu11r.jpg Paragraph Alignment to the Left any text or object that the cursor is placed on
http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/3486/menu12g.jpg Paragraph Alignment to the Middle any text or object that the cursor is placed on
http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/428/menu13e.jpg Paragraph Alignment to the Right any text or object that the cursor is placed on
  1. http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/2454/menu14.jpg Number Ordered List Icon will Start a Numbered Listing if no text is high-lighted, if there is text high-lighted then a Number Ordered List will be applied to the High-lighted text.
http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/3171/menu16.jpg Decrease Indent Icon will decrease the amount of indentation that is within a paragraph of text.
http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/6609/menu17.jpg Increase Indent Icon will Increase the amount of indentation that is within a paragraph of text.
http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/7428/menu18.jpg Insert Link Icon will attach a Web Address Link to a Picture of High-lighted Text.
http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/6483/menu19.jpg Remove Link Icon will remove the attached Web Address Link that had been applied to a Picture or High-lighted Text.
http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/1517/menu20.jpg Insert Email Link will do just that, it will ask you for the Email Address that you want to place in your post.
http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/264/menu21.jpg Insert Picture, will ask you for a Web Address of the Picture that you want to post.
http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/1635/menu22.jpg Wrap High-lighted text/links/pictures inside of a Quote Box.
http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/3842/menu23.jpg Wrap High-lighted File Links inside of a Code Box.
http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/9826/menu24.jpg Wrap PHP tags around High-lighted Text. I don't use this function at all.
http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/4094/menu25.jpg Wrap High-Lighted YouTube File link with the YouTube Tags.
Now that is out of the way we can look at the Icons that we would actually use.
http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/5461/menu03.jpg We would use this is Change the Size of the Title Text inside of you Post. I always make the Head Title Text a Size 4. The rest of any Title Text would be a Size 3 and the Normal Information Text a Size 2.
http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/5264/menu04.jpg I always like to use 2 colours in a post. Black is the standard text and any Title Text I like to use Purple. When you pick a colour I would recommend a Deep / Dark colour. Yellow or Pink is a bit hard to look at and even see some times.
http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/4111/menu08a.jpg I always Bold all of the Title Text and always leave the other Information Text as normal (un-bolded).
http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/7428/menu18.jpg When you want to place a collection of Images on your post you do not want to actually post the Full Sized Images, you would normally post a ThumbNail of the Image and then with the required Thumbnail Selected use this Icon to attach the Web Address of the Full Image. I have done that to this Icon so Click on it and another Image will open up on a new page (normally).
http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/264/menu21.jpg This is a very important Icon as it allows you to post Images / Pictures. I used this Icon to post all of the Images that you can see in this posting. This Icon requires that you have a Web Address for the required Image / Picture. (If the image is on your own computer then use the Add Attachment (paperclip) Icon.
http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/1635/menu22.jpg When you are posting a lot of Information then it may be wise to place the Information inside of a Quote Box and to do that you would High-light select all of the Information text that you want to be inside of the Quote Box and then select this Icon.
http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/3842/menu23.jpg This is an important Icon as you would use it to place your DownLoad Files Web Address inside of a Code Box. I normally Select this Icon first and then place my mouse pointer in-between the 2 sets of square brackets and then insert / paste in my DownLoad Files Web Address.
http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/4094/menu25.jpg Normally you would not use this in a Wallpaper Post but you could use it in a Graphic Tutorial posting. So you might have a U-Tube of "How To Do Some Thing" in PhotoShop and you want to share it with other members. You have the Web Address of the U-Tube (http //youtube/_OBlgSz8sSM) Charlie Bite My finger - again)) and now you need to select the only the last bit of the Web Address, I have made it Bold for you to see, you then place that bit of the Web Address on your post (_OBlgSz8sSM)and High-light it, then select this Icon. You now should have an embedded U-Tube file on your post.
In the Next Reply Section I will show you How These All Fix Together.

Re: How to Display Your Post << Read before Posting
Actual Post Layout Shown
This is the "Post Head Title" normally the Same Title name as the Thread Title
# It is normally a different Size & Colour compared to the rest of the post and it is Bolded, here it is Blue and the Size is set to 4.

# The Next thing is the Image that you want to post. Here I selected the Insert Picture Icon and then pasted the Web Address of the required Image and pressed Ok.
# Then we have some Required Information about the Post. This text is normally Bolded and is normally just left as Black in colour.
CreativeMotorBikes00.JPG | 640 x 477px | 30.85 Kb
# Then you may want to add some more additional Information about the product that you are posting about so it would be done in a Quote Box. Type in the Information and then High-light select all of the text and then select the Wrap Quote Icon.

This is an image of a MotorBike that I found on the Net, I believe that the site was called www. creativemotorbikes .com but I am not 100% sure about that. I really love this photo because it is RED and is in the shape of a Bull.
# Now you would tell your post readers where they can get this great Product (Image) from. Using a Title to clearly shows "Look Here" you would place the text "DownLoad:" and then under it you would put "Where" the DownLoad File is being Hosted, in this case "ImageShack". Notice that both of the text are Bolded and of a different Colour.
# Then you would Select the Warp Code Icon and place your DownLoad Files Web Address in between the Square Code Brackets

Here is it with out the comments, I have also Centered the post.

Re: How to Display Your Post << Read before Posting
Extra - Making the Post Your Own
This just relates to using your own File Hosting Sites to Host your Images or DownLoad Files.
How many posts have you been to and there is either No Image or there is a Image that tells you
"Don't Hot Link Our Images", regardless of the reason why there is no Image, the fact is that "There Is NO Image".
If I cannot see an Image that goes along with the Posted Product then I won't DownLoad the file or
even say Thanks, & the feeling is even worst if I see the "Don't Hot Link Our Images".
All of this shows me that the Poster most likely Lifted the post from another Site and does not really
care if it works or not. Sure I have lifted posting and will do in the future, but I do go that little bit further
and I UpLoad the Image to a File Hosting Site that I have access to. I have also UpLoaded actual
Product DownLoad Files to different File Hosting Sites that I belong to and Posted them.
So what is the advantage of doing this. Well the Images will always be there to show what the post is all
about & if you Host a DownLoad File then you know if it is still there (valid) no more Dead Links.
There is more to File Hosting then just UpLoading the Product Image of your post. Think about the little
extra bits, like the DownLoad Button? the File Hosting Site Buttons? the Information Button?
HD_Pack_Superior_Wallpapers(512) Here the poster has used a small collection of his own
(I think - I don't know who Troy is) Buttons to smarten up his post.
SexyGirls by Joh - Wallpaper Pack 46 Here is another example of a poster using there own collection of
Buttons to smarten up their post.
So how does a poster do this! First up you need to find a Image File Hosting Site that is FREE. I use 2 Image
Hosting Sites, one for normal Images and the other for naughty Images.
SexyGirls by Joh - Wallpaper Pack 46 Here I have used both Image Hosting Site to host my posted Images.
imageshack.us is used be me to Host all of my personal Buttons, while I had to use pornoimg.com to host the
Product Image. As you can see there is not much wrong with the Product Image but it failed the File Hosting Test
of ImageShack.
http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/8760/ygirls44.jpg Is the Product Image that you would have seen if I had not noticed it. So I had to
Host the Image on the Pornoimg.com site because they don't care.
Pattern Borders - Textures Pack Here you can see that I have actually UpLoaded this file to a File Hosting Site
so that all of the members here can get access to it. The file that is shown on most other forums, link to another
File and NOT the one Posted.
Now you might not be able to use a Graphics Program to create you very own Buttons but you can search the web
for other suitable Buttons or Logos. You could even Lift the DownLoad File Hosting Site Buttons for a post by just
grabbing the Buttons Link Address. Then just UpLoad it to your own space on a Free Image Hosting Site. Now while
these sites are free it is best to Join Up so you then have control over the Images that you UpLoad to your own Space.
I hope that all of this has helped. I feel that if you have Read and Seen all that I have posted here, you will have a
better understanding on How A Post should look like. This way your post won't be sent to the Recycle bin.
If you need anymore help then please let me know and I will see what I can do. :thumbs:

Hey, this is a great tutorial, looks like you really put some time and effort into it. I am sure new posters will appreciate it :D
