Ok time for everyone to pitch in and give back to forumotion. We need to update some tutorials around here and they are:

1) How to set Maximum Avatar Size?-Kilsek-sent to Caihlem
2) How to add a forum banner?-Kilsek-sent to Caihlem
3) How to make forums & categories-Kilsek-sent to Caihlem
4) How to make tables in a post-Kilsek
5) Colors and Fonts for your Forum
6) Cascading Stylesheets (CSS)

Sanket is doing the following:

1) How to make the navigation bar without the text, just buttons.
2) How to turn your html on in the posts.
3) How to activate the users manually.
4) How to ban a user, or delete a user
5) How to mail all the users in a single go? ( This is basically the Newsletter Option)
6) How to create ranks, which automatically change with the # of posts.


Therre could be more made, if you have sggestions post them!

Tips on creating tutorials:

Screen shots make it easier to member to understand, USE THEM!
In depth text description
Spelling is a plus-use proper grammar
English only

Thanks Kilsek for making the thread. So are we posting the tutorials in this thread itself? Or we are just letting everyone know, what tutorial a person is making so that its not repeated?

I am going to make tutorials which would address simpler questions. Wink
Tutorials i will be making:
1) How to make the navigation bar without the text, just buttons. - Sent to Caihlem
2) How to turn your html on in the posts. -Sent to Caihlem
3) How to activate the users manually. - Sent to Caihlem
4) How to ban a user, or delete a user
5) How to mail all the users in a single go? ( This is basically the Newsletter Option) -Sent to Caihlem
6) How to create ranks, which automatically change with the # of posts. -Sent to Caihlem
7) How to upload your own image to the navigation bar instead of the default image? - Sent to Caihlem


I think thats all for now, will be making these on monday after my presentation.

Ok so I will do the tables then

@Mr. Mario: Take a look around the forums where you see many of the same topics asking for help. Find one that you know the answer to and write the tutorial.

How about one for bversion 3 fixing the width of the spot where the no new, new and locked posts appear on the index. Sometimes the image overlap with the forum description.

I started a CSS tutorial a while ago... i got quite far... but then i discovered that I covered about 3% of the css in about 4 posts...
Then I kinda looked a bit forward and saw that a CSS tutorial would be giant ... and it would be a written essay of the learning I've been doing for years...

But maybe I could squeeze it to the basics
