Welcome to HepCnet's Forum Help!

HepCnet board scripts have a number of great features. We hope that these items will add to the enjoyment of the boards for all parties.

Below you'll find a brief description of some of the new features, as well as some explanations for some of the common problems you may experience or questions you may have.

The boards support user profiles. These profiles are optional: you do NOT have to have a profile set up in order to post to the boards. These are simply a place to put information about yourself that you would like others to know.

Please be responsible with these profiles. The usual rules apply, and they will be monitored by the administration.

In order to set a profile, you must set a password. This password will be required if you update or change your profile in the future. If you set up a profile, any messages posted under that same username will require that password as well. This means that no one can use your nick on the board!
Please write down your password!

If you have cookies enabled on your browser, then the script will remember your password for you, and drop it into the appropriate box on the "Post a Message" form. If you have cookies disabled, you'll have to enter your password when you post.

Pictures and Formatting
You may include graphics in your profile either by using the same link box that you're used to using when posting messages, or by uploading a graphic from your harddrive to our server. If you choose to upload a graphic, it must be 20k or smaller. Additionally, formatting codes (see below) may also be used in profiles.

Profiles Not Showing Up In The List
If you enter a profile, it does not show up in the list until you have posted to the board under that username.

"Smiley" Codes Help

Our forums allows you to assign certain "smiley" and/or format codes, so that you have more control over how your message looks, without having to know or use actual HTML codes! Below, you'll find a brief explanation of how those features work.

If you include certain ASCII "smiley" characters (also known as "emoticons") in the subjects or bodies of your messages, they'll be automatically converted to graphics, as follows.

Formatting Codes

We have disabled the ability to use HTML tags to format messages on the boards. But don't worry, you can still format your messages using the codes listed below.

    The following codes are available to you if you want or need to specially format your messages.
    (Unlike the "smiley" codes, these will work only in the BODY of your messages.)

    Simply put the appropriate formatting codes Before AND After the text you want formatted.

    [b] Bold Text [/b]

    = Bold Text

    [i] Italic Text [/i]

    = Italic Text
    [list] [*]Item 1 [*] Item 2 [/list] =
    • Item 1
    • Item 2
    [center] Centered Text [/center] =
    Centered Text

    [big] Big Text [/big]

    [hipink] Yellow Highlighted Text [/hi] = Pink Highlighted Text

    Note: Works for .wav, .mid, .au files that are on the HepCnet server.

    Important General Tip

    Never assume that your message will look the way you expect it to look! Previewing your message before you post it is always a good idea, anyway, but is even more important if you're using the above codes, since if you mis-type something, the message won't look the way you expect it to look!

    Search Help
    You can search for specific messages by keywords, messages posted by specific individuals, and by specific dates.

    Setting preferences:
    You can select which method you want to view the discussions.
    "Chronological": Show messages simply in the order in which they were posted;
    "Alphabetical" Lists arrange messages in alphabetical order by their subjects;
    "Threaded" Displays show messages in indented lists, with responses directly beneath their parent messages. The "reversed theaded" display is the "default" style of many Web-based bulletin boards and is the style with which many users are most familiar. The "mixed threaded" display arranges primary messages with the newest at the top.
    "Compressed" Displays show on the main index page only the first message of each thread; responses are available only by going to the primary message's page.
    "Guestbook-style" Displays the full text of messages on the main index page in a strict chronological manner; "threaded guestbook-style" displays show an index page very similar to that of the "compressed" displays, but show the full text of all messages in a thread on a single page.
