How do I post a Reply?

If you read a message and want to post a reply, you can do it directly from that message page.  Let's look at the parts of the message page:

The Linkbar (There's a linkbar at the top and the bottom of each message page):

The Message:

View Thread:

If someone has already responded to this topic, their message will be visible here.  Just like on the Main Message List, you can click on any of these messages to read them.

The Reply Input Boxes:

These are exactly like the main Message Input Boxes, with two exceptions:

Click the [Preview] to check your message for typos before posting it.

Click the [Post It] button, to send your message to the board.

Click the [Reset] Button it you want to start over.

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.

Why are there colons in the message when I try to post a reply?

Colons appear in the message dialog box when you try to reply up on a message to indicate that those lines are quoting the previous document. The owner of the e_Board can decide whether they wish to enable or disable the quoting of previous messages.

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 you disk cache. Please reload your browser window and it should then appear.
