I CAN'T LOGIN!!
If you cannot log in, please tweet us @BBjlo or e-mail us at admin@beyond-beautiful.com. We moved to our own server in January 2012 and all passwords were reset. We can send you your new password.


PASSWORD OR E-MAIL CHANGE
Click "User Control Panel" on the top right, just above the banner. It is a small image of a person to the left of the envelope. (OR, click: ucp.php) On the top, click "Profile", then "Edit Account settings". There you can change your e-mail address or password.


CHANGING AVATAR
Click "User Control Panel" on the top right, just above the banner. It is a small image of a person to the left of the envelope. (OR, click: ucp.php) On the top, click "Edit Avatar". Upload your avatar (max size is 125 x 125) to an image host such as imgur.com. Then paste the direct url into the "Link off-site" box, clear the avatar dimension fields and "Submit".

**Please do not link to huge images, as that will slow the board down.



POST A PHOTO
To post a pic, copy and paste the image url into your post. Highlight the url and click Image
Then you are done!

OR

Click Image, paste the url in the "enter a link for image" field, click "Insert into message" and you're done!


VIEWING FULL SIZE IMAGES IN THE GALLERY
Only board members with over 2,500 posts can view full size images in the gallery.


PRIVATE MESSAGE INBOX IS FULL?

Each inbox can only hold 50 messages. Once you reach this limit, you need to start deleting messages in order to receive new ones. When you delete the messages, click "release on hold messages". Here is a sample image if you can't find it: http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/2708/25061995.jpg



VIDEOS
If you post the url for the Youtube, Vimeo, etc video, it should automatically embed it into your post.

I don't know if this is doing it for everyone else. But when u are on the page where it says like annoucements, J. World, Media, General Discussion it always shows that it is new no matter what. No matter if it is or not. Is anyone else having this problem?

It shows as new if any posts are marked as new in that form. So, if you read all the topics except one in GD, it will show as "new" on the main page.

How do I embed Tweets here? :interesting

Have you seen that on any other forums? That would be nice, if do-able.

I just discovered that every tweet has an embed code.

Here they explain how it works.

Yeah, I was looking at that, but I'm not totally sure that can be turned into a BBCode. I will play with it and see. If you see it used on another forum, though, let me know. :D

Oh, but that's not a phpBB board, it's VBulletin. Should've specified. :(

[s]you guys must think I'm stupid - but:
how can I create a new topic? I can't find any button to do so.
Sorry![/s]

Found it! It was just hidden on my screen

It's above the topic list on the left.

It's also in each topic under the posts on the left as well as at the top, on the left. Basically the same places they were on Yuku, except on the other side. Let me know if you don't see them and I'll post a screenshot. :D

^ Thanks and sorry for causing confusion. :smile: It was a matter of my PC; the "new topic" button just wasn't shown until a restart.

Can we not allow more characters in the "subject" field? :p

Just like the "old BB" days?

[s]Will look into it, it is annoying me too.[/s] changed it too max 100 characters, that should be more than enough.

I'm also thinking about including topic categories, or atleast topic category icons, like we had on the old BB.
