    Here are some helpful instructions that will enable you to get the most out of the forums.

    1. Avatars - this is the little picture above your user name on posts.
    2. Signature - this is the "footer text" that shows on the bottom of your post.
    3. Email notifications - you can choose to receive email notifications when a thread is replied to.

    All of this stuff is done in your Profile.

    To access your profile, click the link under your name in one of the forums and you will see your profile page with some links in the upper right.

    1. Click Avatar on the top right to upload your avatar pic.

    2. Click EDIT to edit your profile

    a. Signature - put something here that you want to show at the bottom of your posts.
    b. Favorite Notification - check the Activate box - this will email you when threads are replied to ... IF ...

    c. Favorite Threads - you have to add threads to your favorites to get notified of updates / replies.

    Each thread has a link:
    Add this topic to your favorites

    Click that to add to your favorites and then you will get email notifications IF you also activated this as described in item C above.

    Hmm... I uploaded and edited my avatar but it is not showing up on my posts, any ideas?

    How do you send a friend request? I tried doing a search in "Members" but the name will just not come up...So I have to browse, and browse, and browse through the alphabetical list...that is not always alphabetical.

    There has to be a simpler way?

    Sorry I'm the technology retard.

    Perhaps, "reply"?

    I just registered today. My messages sent and received are not showing up in the messages tab under my account. The only time I saw I received messages was right after I sent one. Any ideas why I cant see them under my account

    No, but for me, PMs are relatively rare. Most items should be posted to all especially for brand new members. Something I can assist with?

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I would like to add a signature but when I go into my profile and click edit there is nowhere to add one. There are boxes for pipes you own, when you first smoked, favorite tobaccos etc. but no box for signature. Did this feature get moved or is it no longer an option for new members? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I am really enjoying the site so far.Also noticed after posting this that my avatar shows up in my profile but not in my post. Interesting.

    “The fact is, Squire, the moment a man takes to a pipe, he becomes a philosopher. It’s the poor man’s friend; it calms the mind, soothes the temper, and makes a man patient under difficulties. It has made more good men, good husbands, kind masters, indulgent fathers, than any other blessed thing on this universal earth.”

    Well I answered my own questions. Apparently when you click on your screen name after posting, it takes you to a different profile page then when signing up. Maybe the other page is just for the magazine side? I don't know but I figured it out now.

    Just to make it easier for future questions, I've already made these screen shots... while you were answering your own question.

    Then...

    But keep in mind that we have new rules on what can be put in the signiture line...

    You must have added the avatar to your PM account instead of your PMforum account. There is a bit disconnect between the two when Pipesmagazine changed it's format... before I got here. Or, that is how I understand it.

    To add an avatar to your PMforum account, you just click on your name under your missing avatar to the left of where you posted in this thread, and the you will see a little tiny button just under the header to the far right. You may have to scroll over, because it is so small. It says "Profile." Click that to make changes to your avatar or your forum account.

    I hope that helps.

    Actually, it is the "avatar" button next to the "profile" button. sorry. Here's a screenshot to help. I hope this helps.

    Thanks

    My ex-wife told me it's either me or your pipe collection. I considered that a win-win.

    I uploaded my avatar a couple days ago, but it only shows up on my profile and nowhere else. I don't know what is going on.

    Also, no messages show up in my inbox or my sent messages, even though I've received 2 messages and sent 2 messages. I only know this because when I click "send private message" under someone's avatar, it lets me send a message to them, and then takes me to another page where I can see both my received and sent messages.

    Twiggy, try clicking on your name at the bottom of this page where it says: "Members online now." You should see a link to edit your information following the "This is how your profile appears to a logged in member."

    You should be able to upload your avatar there. I just figured this out myself after like 2 weeks of not understanding why my avatar wasn't showing.

    Great info. Hope it all carries over to new platform when that happens.

    Dan,

    That worked. It's weird how there seems to be two different ways to edit your profile.

    Still don't know what's going on with private messages though.

    Two different messaging systems. I use only the one that comes up by clicking on "Send Private Message" under the name of the intended recipient.

    It might not even be worth learning this system. There is a redesign coming just around the corner.
