Nope didnt work. Just made a brand new board.
So he can get into the old board and delete my header for me huh?! That would be great if he could. Maybe I should pm him just incase he misses this?
Thanks for your help though, I cant believe I did that LOL

Yeah, he can clear your headers for you whenever you need.

No problem...I tried lol. He'll probably see this next time he has time to fix up your board.

Heyo, your post was just an advertisement for your forum. Call me a killjoy, sure...but it didn't really seem like a post for the benefit of us but more for that forum.

I have copied and pasted directly from the address bar:

http://www.smfsupport.com/support/advertise_your_boardblog/tips_to_promote_your_board-t22.60.html;topicseen

Now, maybe I am seeing things - or just thick, but:

/support/advertise_your_boardblog/
This does seem to let me do just that?
Your rules are: 1 topic per board - I have not broken that.
No bumping - I have not done that.

I simply replied (like everyone else) to an Admin topic 'Tips to Promote your Board' in a board called 'Advertise your Board/blog'

This post (#51) was not removed (although it appears to have been moderated...)
One rule and all that!:

Have a Member MAgazine like this one:
http://chillhouse.smfforfree.com/index.php?topic=527
[You Have To Register to View]


There are plenty of others like it - so why pick on mine?

Just because someone else did it doesn't make it right. I missed that post.
Alright, check your PM's...enough of this. Seriously. Gotta keep large topics like this decently organized. It's already gotten a little out of hand in this topic with more support requests, selfadvertisements and requests than suggestions.

Consider this a little warning to keep large already confusing topics like this ontopic. ;)

can one also post button or codes in signature?  I tried it, wasn't successful.  it was looking too small .. not like yours which looks very nice.

Hi Songbird   :)

Yes,  you can post buttons, pictures, things in your sig line.   You have to use BBCode there.

(remember to take out the spaces.. i need to put them here so the code shows up right)

To post a picture in your sig:

[ img ] http:// url of the picture [ /img]

If you want to post a clickable button/picture:

[ url= http:// address you want user to go to when button/pic is clicked ][ img ] http:// address of your pic/button [ /img ] [ /url ]
thanks Sybil again but I was trying to link my email addy instead of a site with a clickable picture and it doesnt work? even if I type admin@xxxxx.com it always come back to http when I update the profile and so it doesnt work. I don't like the link that is already on the left for the email, that was for my sig. Thanks.

It can be done.  Hover your mouse over this smiley:



To do it do this:

Here's something you guys will probably like! Create a toolbar for your forum. I created one for mine and it has features like Messages (users can read messages posted by you from the toolbar), Links (I have quick links to important pages on my forum), a radio/podcast player, email notifier (keeps track of your email; works with Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, and POP3), and weather.

To create your own toolbar for free go to www.ourtoolbar.com

Any other good ways to advertise you're forum.  My friend has got a forum which is about the Bleach manga series.  Ive asked him if he could advertise my forum on his site in exchange for me advertising his site, so we would both advertise each others forums for a better advantage.  But I need a bigger advertising campaign.
