    Default How to's + Hints & Tips on how to use the Vine

    A thread for us all to aid each other by explaining the way/s we find easiest to achieve goals (posting,searching,etc) within the forums & sometimes for other search engines.
    NO chatting please as we want this to be searchable (Mod's please delete non informative posts),to aid this please use the Go Advanced reply tab then put a brief description in the Title box before posting.Cheers
    Like in gardening there is invariably more than one way to do a task,so if you do things in a different way to an already posted method please post your way as well.
    Shortly I will start another thread (& link it here) where we can ask each other if there is a known method to get a particular task performed expediently.

    EDIT: If the answer is not already in this thread,please ask your question In THIS thread

    Default Adding an image/picture to a post

    Firstly find your image,right click & from the drop down list & left click copy image location in this case .... http://www.bazingawebdesign.com/site...zinga_logo.png
    This can be done under the advanced tab by clicking on the 6th button from the right which will open a box for you to paste the copied link,click ok
    Or in the quick reply use the img tag ... type [img] paste link (then type) [/img]

    so .....



    Remember that in the advanced tab there is the Preview Post button

    Fair play BB.

    Is there a way we can set up an index for the posts that will be received, otherwise we are at the mercy of the inadequate search engine. Perhaps we could update the first post when information is added and put it in some alphabetical order. Is that feasible? I'm up for it.

    Default Adding a video to a post

    The video in this case is ... The Seekers - Morningtown Ride - YouTube..
    Again there is an option under the advanced tab,copy the URL of the video,click 5th button (insert video) from the right, paste link, click ok
    In the quick reply box we use tags [?] link[/?] replacing ? with video,so leaving the brackets open for a moment............

    video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsqNcZ1JqW8[/video

    And now with the brackets closed at both ends ....

    Default Searching the vine via google

    Originally posted in another thread,reproduced here with kind permission from Farmer_Giles

    N.B the asterisks are an edit done by me by prior arraignment with Farmer_Giles

    Quote Originally Posted by Farmer_Gyles View Post

    site:growfruitandveg.co.uk/grapevine "growing lettuce"

    this will do an exact search for "growing lettuce" within growfruitandveg.co.uk/grapevine - i currently get 94 results for this search - they all have the words "growing lettuce" together

    remove the quotes and i get 3930 results of posts that include those two words (and variations such as "grow", but the words are not necessarily together (ie, the words "lettuce" and "grow" can be in different places on the page)

    there are loads more search options for google (and other search engines) - a valuable one is negating words and phrases by using the minus symbol - this can help narrow down results - so you might want to find information on growing lettuce which is not iceberg type - so your search could become:
    site:growfruitandveg.co.uk/grapevine "growing lettuce" -iceberg
    this gives me 91 results - not the best example, but it shows how to do things

    Default Highlighting text

    In the advanced tab we have the Bold,Italic & Underline buttons

    You can do the same in quick reply by highlighting text (left click & drag) & then use any or all ...........

    control + b = =Bold
    control + i = = Italic
    control + u = =Underline
