notifications

you may very well know that you can subscribe a topic by clicking 'NOTIFY'.

however, did you know that you can also watch a board for new threads?
clicking 'NOTIFY' while viewing a board will do just that.

to edit subscriptions and settings, go to profile > notifications and email.

edit: feel free to ask questions.

since Show unread posts since last visit. resets if you leave, and Show new replies to your posts. only takes effect if you've already posted in a thread, a good option is to try All unread topics.

you can access this at the bottom right after clicking Show unread posts since last visit.

what are you typing in? i don't think you can 'search by user' with the quick search.
try going to advanced mode with 'by user:' and 'Show results as messages'

if you'd like to change the chat colors etc. try this out. first off, you'll need the addon firebug (for firefox). download this and restart your browser.

after logging in, open up the chat (http://chat.animorphsforum.com/blab.php).
click on the bug icon in the corner of your browser (see: attached) to access the firebox panel. clicking the red - will hide it.

in the panel that comes up, click on 'css' and then click on 'blab.php'. you'll want to change this to 'style.css'.
at the very top you'll see the following lines of code:

Code: [Select]
body {
    background-color: #395871;
    color: #FFFFFF;
    margin: auto;
    padding: 0;
}

click on #395871 (the default blue) to replace the color with another -you can use plain hex or try some of the web color names (e.g. Salmon, PaleGreen).

if you'd like to, you can also change the name colors. click on #FFFFFF and try a few out! you can experiment throughout the page with other elements, too.
feel free to tell me if you need help. :goom:
