Guys, why do some attached video's do not appear in your Attach Files attempt? Do I need to transfer it to some kind of format?
Also it would be great to have a New Forum sticky so we dont have to search for this to ask Tech questions. Thanks.

Are you using the Insert drop down menu and choosing "Media"?

Ah, I do not think we can host MP4 files -- that would explain. If you could put it on youtube or something then you could use our Media insert. But I think that we simply don't have the capacity to host MP4 here at this time, sorry.

What if I converted to an MP3 file?

Well it did not work as an MP3 file. That only did audio. So I turned it into a GIF and could use it but no sound.
Why no sticky?

just added code so that when you are viewing the forums on your mobile phone (like I do a lot), now at the TOP of the threads, it has the page navigation so you don't have to scroll to the very bottom each time. Hope that also helps someone else other than me! :)

Is there a way to scan an alphabetical list of members?
is there a way to search threads words in titles or posts
for example let’s say I was curious to search any threads about spot shots
how would I do that?
or threads by ghost ?
for example

when you click on "Search" in the top right it has a box "Search titles only" which you can tick. Further down, there is a field "by:" - you fill in "One Pocket Ghost" and voila!

The only thing I didn't figure out is how to search by a phrase (like "spot shot" in your case). If I type in two words, the algorithm seems to pick up all threads/posts containing either of these words which is not very helpful. The way I go about it is via a google search with "spot shot" in quotes and add site: onepocket.org to restrict the results to onepocket.org only but there must be an easier way. Putting "spot shot" in quotes on here does not seem to do a thing to the search results

for an alphabetical list of members, yes we can put that on the site, its an option but it says "warning, this will slow down your site" - so I did not enable it. @NHSteve if you want me to enable it let me know!

to search just click the search in the upper right, choose your keywords and if you want therm to be in title only and/or who it was posted by!

If you want to just see posts or threads from a certain member, click on their icon (in one of the threads) and when you get to their individual page, you can either click on postings at the bottom or the FIND > all content from lll or whoever you are looking up!

quotes work for me, like "spot shot"

its not perfect, you may have some results with just spot, but a lot of the results have spot shot together...

cincy thanks for the replies
as for searching a list of members alphabetically
maybe you can test to see how much slower it makes the site
if noticeable i would NOT be in favor of enabling it

I checked with Steve and he was good with trying it Larry, so I have it enabled!

If you click across the top on members, then on the left, click on registered members and it will give you the alphabetized list of registered members on the forum.

Here is a direct link to the list:

what good is a list of 200 pages of people that have never posted or only a couple times in the past.
might as well be looking at the phone book.

instead order them by post count.
