Unable to login- what should I try?
If logging off your computer or re-booting does not clear up the problem, (quite often it will and several said that solved it) then your cookies must be messed up.

If you do reboot your computer, go directly to: https://www.camaros.net/forums/ instead of the old location (if you had it bookmarked)

If no luck:
Between the old forum and the new forum, it might be best to dump your cookies.

Go to: https://www.camaros.net/forums/cookieclear.html and find this link:

Delete All Cookies Set by This Forum

click that and it will ask if you are sure, click yes.
this will delete your cached username and password info.
A page should come up that says 1 (or more) cookies set by this board have been cleared

Do NOT click on any links on the page that comes up, it belongs to the old forum and we want to avoid that.

Go directly to the new forums: https://www.camaros.net/forums

log in and you should be good for a long time.


How do I post in different colors and fancy styles?
WYSIWYG
Acronym for: What You See Is What You Get

That's how everyone is posting the replies with colors, styles and sizes.

The WYSIWYG editor is one that allows a user that creates a new post to see what the end result will look like while the post is being created. This is in contrast to editing a post in the standard editor which requires you to understand BB Code tags like [b] for bold and [u] for underline.

By Default the forum uses a basic editor box.
It allows Bold and Italics which is enough to "get the job done" and favored by a large number of gearheads.

If you are comfortable with word processors it is often nicer to use more features to make your post or reply more interesting and clearer to read.

To enable the editor for your use:

  • Click on UserCP (on the top left of the bar above all the forums) and select "Edit Options"
  • You may also navigate to your profile by using the drop down that says Quick Links on the bar above the forums and choosing: "Edit Options".
  • Seeing as you are reading this, you may also CLICK HERE once you finish reading these instructions.
Scroll to the bottom of the page until you see the last section, as below:

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

Click on the box [Basic Editor a simple text box ] and choose: Enhanced Editor: full wysiwyg editing.

When you post a NEW Topic or a FULL REPLY this new editing box will be available.
(does not display on quick reply as, well, that's not the purpose of a quick reply)
