Since we've moved over to the new forum software, I figured it'd be good to have a thread to illustrate new features and shortcuts that we didn't have before.

For example,

When creating a post you can use shortcut keys to quickly add styling to your text like in a word processor.

Ctrl+B
Ctrl+I
Ctrl+U

There's also a multi-quote button on the bottom right of each post which you can use to mark posts you want to reply to in a single post. Very handy.

Got other tips and tricks you've found? Post them here!
So long & thanks for all the fish!

    The thread search feature now works. On ikonForum, you could see only the first page of results.
    If you type a plain username in the search box, you end up with when that username was mentioned in the thread. You have to click advanced in the thread search box if you want all posts from a specific user. I find it hard to believe I've posted exactly 100 times in the Shiniest Say Anything Thread, but it might be true. On the other hand, it might be a 100 hits limit on search returns. EDIT: Nope, definitely just a coincidence.

    The new posts feature is now available to all users. It is at the upper left of the control bar. Use it to catch up on the latest discussion.

    It says I posted this about 10 hours after I actually did because the default time zone setting is Moscow (GMT+3). Change it by clicking Settings at the top, then General Settings.

    You've got 101 according to the listing: http://board.rpgamer.com/forum/misc.php?do=whoposted&t=15259

    To pull up a list (in a seperate window) of how many posts you have on a thread, just click the number of replies from the forum list.

    日本語

    EDIT: You can!

    I'll be watching this thread guys. Been updating the newbie guide as fast as I can because the info in it was pretty outdated, and it's a real dino now -- so any info here is welcome.

    vBulletin comes with a rich text editor; if you set it on, you don't have to worry about vBcode at all, you can see it right in the editing window. Definitely recommended!

    I'm not sure if this works for non-moderators, but if you double click on the icon for a sub-board from the main forum listing it'll mark all the threads inside as read.

    I' m not sure where to put this, so just bear with me.

    Hi there; I just joined this forum, and wished to make a thread on this site. Unfortunately, I can't do that--at all. Can someone please help me out here?

    You need at least 10 posts.

    I just tried it with Chrome and Roulette Tipps seems not to work but it works properly with Firefox. Is there any difference? I'd like to switch to Chrome and think it's a pretty cool feature to use.
