Are you new to Weddingbee? Or have you been around for a while but still feel like maybe you’re going about things the hard way? Here are a few tips to help you out!
1. How do I reply to someone with the @ sign?
Below each post on the boards, you’ll see (reply) – just click this link and it will automatically link to that poster in your reply.
2. How do I link to a specific post (instead of the whole thread)?
Each post has a timestamp at the bottom of it. Clicking the timestamp will create a unique link in the url bar, which will link directly to the post.
3. How do I flag an offensive post?
Also, at the bottom of each post, you’ll see the word “Flag” – clicking this link will bring up a scripted window (it looks similar to a pop-up window) with space to type a brief note.
Flags have a minimum of 10 characters, and a maximum of 265 characters (you can type more than that, but it won’t show up). You can use this space to briefly explain why you think a moderator should review a post.
Flags are commonly used to report offensive content or spam, but can also be used to bring a moderator’s attention to a post for other reasons.
4. How do I edit my posts?
For up to one hour after you post, you’ll see an “Edit” link at the bottom of your post. This will allow you up edit your post for up to one hour.
Please note that after one hour, you will not be able to edit your posts. If you accidently post personally identifying information and need it removed, you can check out our deletion policy in the Support section.
5. How do I post a photo?
Look for the green button that looks like a polaroid of a tree. Clicking it will bring up an upload box where you can upload and manage photos.
6. How do I change my avatar?
Click on “View your profile” in the top right of any page. Then choose the “Profile” tab. You’ll see /profile at the end of the URL, after your username.
Then click “Change Avatar” and upload the photo you’d like to use.
Because of a slight glitch in our software, sometimes avatar changes take a little while to take effect. If your new avatar doesn’t seem to upload correctly after the first few tries, wait 24 hours before trying again. You will likely find that when you log back in later, it has changed to the new avatar.
7. Navigate the site and filter the boards?
We’ve got a dark green navigation bar across the top of the site that you can use to toggle between the Blog, Bios, Boards, Classifieds, DIY, Gallery and Vendor Reviews sections.
On the Blog and Boards, you’ll notice a lighter green sub-navigation bar as well, to further filter what you’re seeing. Tired of seeing non-wedding related content on the boards? Choose the Wedding Related tab to only see relevant posts! Need a planning break? Try the Not Wedding Related or Nesting tab instead! The boards default to “All Posts”, so unless you choose to filter, you’ll be seeing everything.
