New Upgraded Hunting Forum Link & More!
Posted by Michael Strahan on May 06 2006
Hi folks,

Some of you know that the new software for the Alaska Hunting Forum is now live online.  For those who don't know, or don't have the address, here it is:

http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/index.php

One of the problems with this forum is that links don't always paste in as clickable links.  I can't tell as I write this whether the link I just pasted in will be clickable or not, so if it isn't, here's how you get there from here.

1.  Put your cursor (the little | symbol that appears as you type) behind the last character, at the end of where it says "php".

2.  Hold your clicker down and drag across the entire address until you have everything including the part that says "http".  It should all be in blue now.

3.  Go up to the "Edit" menu at the top of your screen and scroll down to where it says "Copy".  Click on "Copy".  Note: If you click on anything between the time you selected the address in this email and the time you selected "Copy", it won't work.

4.  Click and drag across the entire address that appears in the long skinny address window at the top of your web browser window (it's the window that has the address of this page in it, and should say something like: http://www.outdoorsdirectory.com/akforum/akhunting_save.php?id=0&a=post ).  If you've selected it properly, the address will be in blue.

5.  Go back up to your "Edit" menu and scroll down to "Paste".  This will paste the address of the new forum into your address window, replacing the old hunting forum link with the new one.

6.  If the address window is still blue, click somewhere on the page to deselect it.  I just click at the end of the address itself.

7.  Click the "Enter" key or the "Return" key, and you'll be taken to the new forum.  

8.  Bookmark the new forum.

11.  For those who already know how to copy-paste, you already know how to do this, probably with keyboard shortcuts; these instructions are intended for any of the many folks who are still learning this computer stuff.  Sorry if it's academic!

10.  Don't ever post in this one again!  That sounds strong, I know, but this won't work if we don't move over.  Eventually David is going to turn this forum off to new posts.  We'll still be able to read this stuff, but it will no longer be live.  All the action will be on the new forum.

I'll create another post here explaining some of the benefits of the new forum, but really we need to move on from here.  As long as we keep posting here, folks will keep going to this place instead of where they need to be.

Thanks for your help!

-Mike
