Viewing can be done by both by guest users and registered users. However, you need to be a registered user in order to post or view the images on the Forum.
User info is displayed on a separate page. Click on the word "member" beneath the registered user's name, and you'll get info about that user.
Users must have cookies enabled in their browser. Cookie passwords are saved in encrypted format. Log in on the Forum page of TGCaps (if you're already a member of TGComics. you can use the same login).
To register, go the TGComics Premium Member Signup Page and fill in the form. You will then be a member of BOTH the TGComics and TGCaps Forums. You'll also be able to buy Premium Comics on TGComics.com.
Necessary fields are:
The "New Topic" form is placed at the bottom of each topics listing page. You need to type the topic's title ("New Topic") and body ("Message"). If you don't fill in "Message", it will be identical to the topic's title. Guest users CANNOT create New Topics!
The "New Post" form is located at the bottom of each thread's page.
Anti-spam protection has been enabled, which mean you can make posts and topics ONLY ONCE in a defined period of time. That time is 1 minute. In other words, you can't make more than one post per minute.
Text breaks (newlines+carriage returns) are automatically converted to "physical" breaks.
Every registered user who makes a post can subscribe to it. Notifications are sent to user's email when someone replies to the topic. Registered users can also subscribe to notifications even if they are not topic authors. Users can also unsubscribe from notifications. For that, go to the desired topic and find the "Unsubscribe" link (instead of notifications checkbox) and just click on it.
If you are a registered user and are using links like http://tgcomics.com (beginning with "http://", "https://", "ftp://", "www" or "mailto:"), they will automatically be converted to "real" links. If, however, you've checked the "Disable" box, links WILL NOT automatically be highlighted (see BB-codes below).
Currently, the forum supports following codes:
Note that the case of BB codes doesn't matter. You can type "[URL]" or "[uRL]" or whatever. Only opening and closing tags ([urL]...[/uRL]) are important, also tags CAN NOT CONTAIN SPACES!
Both guest and registered users can use BB-codes, but you can also DISABLE BB-code in your post, checking "Disable" flag. Usually this is not necessary, because BB-codes allow posts to be more organized and help create good-looking messages. But if you need to post something without BB-codes, it is possible. To avoid BB-codes, you can also put spaces inside them.
It is possible to combine tags with each other, i.e., to make "bold+italic" or "bold link". But be careful with opening and closing tags correctly. Example:
'This General Public License [b]does not permit[/b] incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General Public License instead of this License.

If you need to post 100% "tagged" URL, it is better to do it with tags, since automatic replacements don't work in some cases. i.e., the following example will not work: [b]http://tgcomics.com[/b]. It is only "bolded", but not "highlighted". For bolding url links, use [url] tag.
Note: you can use tags also for multi-line text. Example:
(text contains two paragraphs) produces:
Topic posters can quote other messages. There is no "quote" BB-code included, as on some bulletin boards. Instead of it, you can use "italic" style to separate quotes. For easy use, there is a "quote" link on every post made. To make a quote, select some text and press this link. The selected text automatically will be inserted into the reply box at the bottom of the page.
Topic authors can lock their topics. In order to do this, the topic author needs to be logged in. At the bottom of the topic's page he must see small "lock topic" link. Clicking on it, topic becomes closed.
Nobody except topic author or an administrator can lock the topic. If topic was locked by admin, the topic author CANNOT unlock the topic.
Registered users (and only registered) can edit THEIR messages, but only if they are cookie-logged and only if the time of the message has not expired. For this, just click on "Edit" on each post (you will only see the message if it is your message, otherwise, you won't). When editing a message, "automatic highlights" are replaced with "real" BB-codes, so there is no need to delete them once again. Also, "real" HTML tags are replaced back to codes. Via editing, a user can add new BB-codes, links, etc. - as in any new post or topic. User can edit only his POST, not topic's title, even if he is the author of the topic. After a message is edited by user, info about that is displayed near each post.
There is no way to delete your message, if you are topic's author. Only the admin can do this.
In some cases, after administrator has edited user's message, for user, there is no way to edit it once again.
For editing user preferences, you need to log in and go to the "preferences" on the top menu. You can make changes to your account, (except your login, that cannot be changed). If you don't want to change your password, leave the password field and go next to the fields you want to edit. You don't need to write your password once more, because are already logged in. When done, just press the submission button below.
This action works exactly like registration: you need to type grammatically correct data. Thus, you cannot change your email to the one of someone who already registered (incl. admin's email ;) ). Updating preferences, you don't need to enter password, if you don't want to change it. Just leave these fields blank.
Login, go to the TGComics Edit Profile page. Type new password 2 times in "password" fields. Your password will be updated to the new one.
Go to the bottom of the TGComics Login Page and enter the email address you have registered with your TGC membership. Your password will be emailed to you.
You can quickly search forums for keywords. The Search panel is placed under the "Search" link in menu. You can search text in topics and posts, in topics only, in poster names, in specified forums, by all words, any words or the whole phrase. Newest messages are shown first.
Search phrase length can't be more than 100 chars. Minimum length of any word is 3 symbols. The more search parameters you specify, the longer time and more specific content will be returned in the results.
Search within specified forums is also available. You can either search in all forums or choose a forum you want to search in.
The search algorithm tries to perform a search on a comprehended words. By fragment, we mean here a fragment of a whole word from the beginning. For example if you search for a word "fox", it will be found in the sentence "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.", also as the word "jump" will be found. But the word "foxy" will not be found, also as "row" won't be found. Searching by whole phrase, the script will find "fox jumps over", but won't find "fox dog" - use "Words or fragments" criteria for finding many words in the text at the same time.
