    Users may have seen to minor changes in the past couple of days..

    Live URLS
    URLs are now live when they are posted on the forum.i.e they are clickable.
    eg. http://www.rafcommands.com/forum

    The formatting can be applied using the tool bar on top of this post window

    BB Code Formatting

    You can also do some simple BB code formatting
    [b ] [/ b] tags for bold
    [i ] [/ i] tags for italic
    [u ] [/ u]for underlined


    Lists
    1. First Item
    2. Second Item
    3. Third Item
    Bullets

    • First Bullet
    • Second Bullet
    • Third Bullet
    Quotes

    I came i saw I conquered
    Signatures
    The bulletin board now also supports URLs in Signature.

    (The URLS on this board are usually "No Follow" signatures so it really wont help any search engine rankings )

    I would request members to use these features responsibily ..


    Additionally In response to a query I got :Colours, Smilies etc are NOT enabled and will not be enabled so one need not worry about that.

    You can use the User test thread http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...0640#post90640 in the Forum Feedback Section to try out the options

    Paul. you can register as a member of wordpress on the site. I will also look around if there is a vbulletin-wordpress "bridge" that will help members avoiding registering yet again.

    The idea is to make 'articles' out of some of the great posts, or threads from the forum.

    I was mentioning to Ross yesterday - he has a couple of threads like http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...ferred-Service and http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...-Numbers-Types that would actually be more readable and readily accessable in the wordpress site. Ditto with any members who would like to contribute detailed articles or posts of archival quality for quick reference.

    Great stuff, thanks Jagan for taking this on. I notice the site runs much more quickly now, so assume you've been able to do some spring cleaning. The increased functionality will be welcome too. All the best with it,

    Richard

    When I cut and paste the following link into my browser, I am taken to a "holding" page.

    http://www.rafcommands.com/cgi-bin/d...rum=DCForumID7

    Is this a one off or has the move meant that these links are no longer valid?

    Regards

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]

    peteT,

    what was the content of the link above? any distinct keyword or aircraft serial number in it?

    Ross did mention these soem days ago, see posts 55 and 57
    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...For-Sale/page6

    Jagan, the links to http://www.rafcommands.com/dcforum/DCForumID6/ go to one of those domain holding sites, don;t know what they are called? Calling itself yourSupportServices.co.uk

    I didn't think a sub part of a domain could be registered elsewhere. if the old forum messages are missing I beleive I webspidered them sometime in the past - bold me.

    The DCForum pages are all still there.

    You were never able to link to the directory page and get a list of the file names.

    To display you need the full url eg

    http://www.rafcommands.com/dcforum/DCForumID6/2.html

    Regards
    Ross
