First to start a topic click on the New Thread. Simple enough. Title and type you post.

The user CP stands for Control Panel and has some good stuff. Click on the User CP.

Control Panel Settings & Options Edit Signature Edit Email & Password Edit ProfileEdit Options Edit Avatar Edit Profile Picture

With the Edit Signature you can do a sign off and with a check in the Show you signature you don't have to type it again. Since I almost always use Peace Love Stardove I really like this.

The next two are pretty simple. Edit email, password and profile.

The Edit Options is cool. You can set you time zone in the Date & Options.

Time ZoneAll timestamps displayed on the forums can be automatically corrected to show the correct time for your location in the world. Simply select the appropriate time zone from the list below.

DST set to Automatically detect DST settings.

Here is the good part:

Message Editor Interface: When posting messages to the forums or other members, there are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.


Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type. Basic Editor - A simple text box Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing


Change the Message Editor Interface to Enhanced Interface and you will have all kinds of tools where no coding is need. Just highlight the text you want to have bold (one example) and Bold then just like Word undo the B for the rest of your text. In the mode you will also have Smilies.:D Hopefully more of :o these than:mad:. Also there is a preview in the Enhanced Interface.

Also when posting I've notice that sometimes I need to go into advanced to get the smilies. Don't know why could be a glitch.

Don't be afraid to explore and please go to your Control Panel and check it out.

As you learn something new about our beloved Beliefnet's new system please share with the

Another tip is if you click on the colored dot beside the member's or your name a menu comes up. From there you can see all the posts the person has posted or your own posts along with some other choices.

Also just now the tools were no available, so I click on the Advanced tab and the tools are back.

:confused: I don't know why this happens, but go to Advanced settings, if you do not have tools.
