Here is a brief explanation of some of the questions you may have about the Message Board.
Can I put html tags anywhere in my posts?
No. You can not use HTML tags in any field except body of the message. The maintainer of the script has the option of allowing or disallowing any HTML in the Message part of your posting. If they disallow it, the script will just throw out everything in <>'s. If they allow it, your html markup will appear in the posting. It can't hurt to try.
Webmaster's note: I currently have the script set to ALLOW html
tags, and will leave it on as long as no one abuses this feature. This means
that you can add a link to pages and such inside the body of a message using
the HREF command (I assume that if you have your own page that you know
how to do this!) Please do not put links to commercial sites in the guestbook,
they will be removed.
Why are there colons in the message when I try to post a followup?
Colons appear in the message dialog box when you try to followup up on a message to indicate that those lines are quoting the previous document.
Why didn't my post show up?
Your post most likely did not show up, because your browser did not reload the page, it simply pulled it out of cache. Please reload your browser and it should then appear.
Where can I get the scripts for this program?
The scripts are written in Perl and created by Matt Wright. They are free to anyone who wishes to use them and you can get them as well as other scripts at: http://worldwidemart.com/scripts/. Enjoy!
