Posting tips

for the forum

+ Before posting

SEARCH and check the TUTORIALS before posting to make sure your answer isn't already there.

+ When you're looking for help

Always join a copy of the .cap (CC) or the .capx (save as single file in C2) of your project.

It is easier for those who help and might get you answers faster.

If you don't want your full project to be displayed publicly, make a new one reproducing the specificities of your question.

Be sure to host your files on DropBox which is the fastest/better filehost around.

+ Format to post links on the forum:

    [url=http://www.thelink.youwish]The text you wish[/url]

If you need to edit your links, beware. The forum automaticly transform url links to this format:

    [url=http://www.thelink.youwish" rel=nofollow"]The text|link you wish[/url]

Be sure to only modify the link itself and keep the quotes (").

In case of doubt, just erase the whole link from [url to and write it again.

+ To embed Youtube videos in the forum

To embed it in the forum you should write:

Your journey starts now.
