C-O-O-L Space Set Up 101 (and some other info)

Postby Lani » Tue Mar 15, 2011 11:34 am


Ok Y'all....

All this COOL Fun Stuff!!!! "Where do I begin?"
Take a deep breath!
Not to take any fun away from phan, (we ALL know how awesome God is through our bros) ...
Ima walk with ya to give him time to finish up some other stuff...

SO grab a snack, take a deep breath and let's get this Party Started


See the top row tab deals....
*Home* *ChatRooms* *Links* *Members* *Search* *UCP* *PMs* *Logout*

Click the UCP tab "UCP" = "User Control Panel"

**OVERVIEW**

Now.... let's take a look at this page first.
This is your info: Posts overview (#'s, stats, etc.)
Now, See on the left side...

"Front Page" "Manage Subscriptions" "Manage Bookmarks" "Manage Drafts" "Manage Attachments"

Front page...this page contains your stats n info
Manage Subscription... if you have visited forums, you likely noticed a "Subscribe to this forum" button (if not, no worries). If you click that button, those forums you chose to subscribe to will appear on this page. If you haven't chosen such, it simply lists topics you have commented on and are therefore "watching" unless ya click "do not watch" when ya post a reply.
Manage Bookmarks .. if you have selected "Bookmark this topic" while viewing or replying to any forum post, it will appear here for quick reference. Again, this is something you must "choose" if you wish to utilize it.
Manage Drafts.... if you begin a forum post, reply, new, or otherwise, and you hafta leave it for a bit, you will see a Save as draft option... if you do so, that draft will appear here. You can then return click the post and complete it.
Manage Attachments... if you post attachments to anything, such will appear here.


**PROFILE**
This is the same as that lil box that appeared with our avi in the old set up...
Fill in the info as ya like.. remember * means ya hafta put somethin there or if ya hit submit, it is gonna say "ya missed somethin" :)

Now, again see on the left side... the menu deal
Edit Signature... aka COOL Quote.. this appears at the end of your forum posts and profile.
Edit Avatar... here is where ya choose and save your avatar... there is a limited gallery of images and the "accepted" image size is rather strict so keep this in mind if you are uploading from your computer.
Edit Account Settings aka Edit Settings from previous set up.... ***USE CAUTION*** I dunno about now, but previously if ya changed email addys or passwords it would kick ya out til the new info was reviewed and accepted... I speak from previous experience :D can ya tell... I AIN'T clickin it now! to see if it is the same :) so if ya really want to change this info, send Phan a PM first.
Profile Page... when viewed by others, shows any videos/photos/quotes you have shared, your avatar, starter info, friends, comments, links to Cool Space pages, etc. Accessed when someone clicks your name in "online" section of the index page.

Whatcha talkin bout Lani? Here... check out my Profile Page :) Just be sure to hold the ctrl button down on your keyboard so another page opens... that way you can refer to both as we go.

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=12271

Take a look around, see where everything I shared is located? Got a question? Please don't hesitate! Always happy to help if I am able. :)

Up Next...

** MY COOL SPACE **
Update Status... this is info that appears at the top of your Profile Page and can be 250 characters in length.
Post a Photo... easy way to share pics... unlike previous setup :)
Post Video.... we can post youtube videos... obviously, posting guidelines apply here :)
Post Quote ... share words of wisdom, this will appear on your Profile Page.
Post a Link... you can share links to various things.... again, guidelines apply here also
Update a Photo Album... you can post multiple pictures and create an "album" to appear on your Profile Page"
Did ya notice on the main forum page (at the top) the random posts of videos, quotes, and status? This is where those "announcements" come from. As you add these things, it is shared there so others can be blessed as well.

If you haven't yet read such, or wish a refresher:
Posting Guidelines, for links, videos, etc.
viewtopic.php?f=110&t=22893

**MSC PAGES** ( Let the Fun really begin!)
We now have 5... count them FIVE Cool Space Pages.... WOOT!

**OVERVIEW**
Everything is pretty well explained here.... you can organize your pages... it tells ya :)
On the Left...
Add Page allows you to add another page (up to 5 total)
You can Name your page, organize it as you like and decide the order in which they will appear as you build them.. or later if ya change you mind, simply by identifying a number (1-5) in the "Order" box
Edit Page ... allows you to select a page and edit it as you like.
Also from the Overview page you can edit, view or delete a page.

Remember when ya checked out my profile page? On the left, under my avi & info, PM Lani,
~ My Music Space ~ ~ God's Guidance ~ those are my COOL Space Pages.

**ADDING A PAGE**
Click "Add Page"
You have the ability to "Name" or title your page.... this is how it will appear on your profile page, so that visitors can click on such to view it.
I dunno exactly what the choices "yes"/"no" things are for sure.... except smiles :) I just clicked Yes for all *dunno*

Style Options... this is a WAY Easier way to adjust those things than it usta be on that scary crazy CCS page we all avoided... SO way simple!
Background Color.... color of your page overall... Click the drop down arrow and select a color.
Background Image .... Now, you will hafta enter the Photobucket language that starts with "http://" then paste it in this box.
Background style... drop down menu "repeat Full page" will repeat the image for however long your page gets cuz of info shared. "Fixed" vs "Scroll"... I picked "Scroll" :)

Font Size size of font for info you share on your page.... I chose "small" cuz I talk a lot and didn't want my page to be miles long. :) Just know.... anything past Medium is really gigantic.
Font Color again soooooooooooooooooooo MUCH easier! Pick a color, any color just be mindful of image colors or background color, ya want it to contrast so it can be read easily.

Now... the Really really real FUN!
It is just a regular text box! Like forums or O Mail! All ya hafta do is type!!!!!
Now.. if you care to post photobucket art or youtube videos ya really want to be sure you clicked "yes" to html and url.... remember those yes/no thingies from a lil earlier... :) click yes if ya didn't before.
You can EASILY Bold, Italic or Underline and word or words in your post... did I mention WAY Easier! :)

then when you are done, click Spell Check on your IE or Firefox window then click submit!
done!!!

The most awesome part! If you wish to share a "Youtube" video on your COOL Space page... All ya hafta do now is click the [youtube] button on the right above the box ya type in... then post the url code (like chat, the http: / / www one... just be sure this info appears like this [you tube]***URL Addy HERE*** [/you tube].

*ohyeah* HOW AWESOME IS THAT! *ohyeah*

Want to add more? Click Add Page and start over! :)

Shall we finish or journey through the tabs just for fun?
Alright.... since you are here!

**FRIENDS**
Your Friends listing
You can also send out multiple "friend requests" and a message as you wish.
Your friends list appears in alphabetical order on your Profile Page, below the links to your COOL Space pages.

On the left..
Block List members you have blocked appear here
View Requests... requests you have sent or received (and not yet accepted) appear here


**PRIVATE MESSAGES**
Another way to access your Private Messages screen.

**BOARD PREFERENCES**
this is rather similar to previous screen MCS Preferences or somethin like

**USER GROUPS**
Lists groups shows which you are subscribed to or might be interested in joining.

Hope ya found this helpful!!!

If you have any questions, NO WORRIES! Please post em here as others may have the same question :) Thanks!


Peace n Luv in Christ,
*BlessYou* Lani

Hiya Sorta *Wave*

Sorry......... I would have responded sooner but I got sidetracked by the TOBYMAC vids *BigGrin*
*Clap* *ohyeah* *Clap*

OK... better now

Well, without seeing your set up... Ima just guess here

You can post the video codes (like we did before) but you don't have to hit enter as this equals the html code <br /> between the codes and will separate each

and!

(This makes the set up WAY easier!)
you don't hafta use the "......" or other coding to get spaces, just use the spacebar as you do when you type!!!

If you are still having trouble.. copy a set of 2 or 3 video codes and paste it here so I can take a look at it better
(and not guess)

Thanks for Posting! Hope it helps sis

Luv ya!

Hiya sorta :)

This is the code for 3 vids side by side centered, the video code is all the same video so its just an example:

EXAMPLE::
<center><iframe title="YouTube video player" width="225" height="199" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qe_0ZRPoDxA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>&nbsp;<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="225" height="199" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qe_0ZRPoDxA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>&nbsp;<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="225" height="199" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qe_0ZRPoDxA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /><br /></center>


Notice this afterthe first 2 videos &nbsp; this makes the space in between them and at the end of the third is this <br /><br /> this makes the new line to start the next row and so on.

CODE TO COPY TO YOUR PAGE::
Code: Select all
<center><iframe title="YouTube video player" width="225" height="199" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qe_0ZRPoDxA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>&nbsp;<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="225" height="199" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qe_0ZRPoDxA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>&nbsp;<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="225" height="199" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qe_0ZRPoDxA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /><br /></center>


Just copy that code above and change the video code to the videos you want, and add the code for as many as you need.

The second code is the one you need to copy and paste without the colors in it :)

Peace and Blessings to you *band*

Hiya Kimberly *Wave*

*hug*

Breathe!!!!!!!!! lol


Ok click here: ucp.php?i=mypage&mode=add

Name your Page whatever you like, then click submit.

You will go to a screen that says "Page Added" which will then redirect you to your "Page Overview" screen. From there, click "Edit" under whatever you named your page. This will take you to the page with the options screen:

"General Options"
Allows you to pick Yes or No for various things including "enable Smilies" (click yes for this if you intend to use em!)

"Style Options"
Allows you to fiddle with background and font colors as well as font size... you can also upload an image from your computer to use in background and have such appear once or repeat through length of page. Just be conscious of colors in image and select a font color that will stand out (contrast).

Least but certainly not least is "Editor" The FUN Begins!
This is what actually shows on your screen. You an upload youtube videos onto your page by using the "youtube" button above the text box.

Have FUN! If ya need any assistance doing so, tag me :)

Peace n Luv in Christ,
*BlessYou* Lani

Thank you- you are so gracious. I found what you said, and tried to write and post something (in Editor)...nothing happened. And, it seems, I don't know what 'tag me' means. :( Kimberly

Hi ya kimberly :)
"Tag me" send a PM n I will walk through with ya was what I meant... but this is fine :)


I would suggest typin up what you want to put on your page on another program, like word or notepad or something then paste it in to page 'editor' square. Then click Submit, be careful not to click reset :)

Sometimes, if ya take a long while or get sidetracked n wander away it will time out so that is why i suggest tryin this instead.

If that doesn't help, no worries! We will keep tryin :)

Peace n Luv in Christ,
*BlessYou* Lani
