Sythe.org Guide for everything you ever wanted to know.
[The content of this guide applies to most vB websites]
I often see people having trouble doing certain things, and I figured I might as well make a guide. I hope anyone learns something from this. If so, it was worth writing.
Let's get started!
1.Quotes and Multi-Quotes
Quotes are an often used mechanism, to show that you are posting a response directly towards the previous poster.
Say I want to reply to this post.
I can click the 'Quote' button in the bottom right.
You'll now get to this screen, and you can place your response here.
Congratulations, you've just quoted someone. Good job!
Multi - Quotes:
Now, this is a bit more tricky (though you should be able to do it), and a lot less people know how to do this. It is, however, very useful, and makes sure you don't have to post 2 posts to respond to 2 users. This is not allowed.
On the first message, press the 'Multi - Quote' button, located next to the 'Quote' button.
If done correctly, the little circle on the button will turn red, like this:
That's the first post you wanted to Quote. Now, the other one is pretty easy. Just press the 'Quote' Button again like you just did when Quoting a single person. Click here again.
Good job, now it's just a matter of writing your ever-keen responses.
The final outcome will show your amazing intelligence (or stupidity), and your friends/debaters/buyers have something else to talk about.
Good job man! You just nailed the Multi-Quote!
You can now call yourself 'Master-Quoter'. Bear that title with pride.
2. Pictures and Links
This section will be about Pictures and links, and everything else to enhance your posts/threads. So let's get right started!
First, I'll have to teach you some basics.
You can print a screen easily. The trick is like this:
-Make sure the section you want to copy is in (approximately) the middle of your screen.
-Click this button on your Keyboard.
Press the buttons [Ctrl] and [V].
You gotta be able to do this without a picture, lol.
Now You save your picture and go to Tinypic.com (My personal favorite, but there are a lot of others, like Photobucket [NOT recommend, most pictures tend to disappear] and ImageShack.com are the most popular ones).
Enter the Captcha and take the bottom link, copy it, and paste it in your signature!

Good Job man! You just nailed it again!
However, for googled pictures, or custom made signatures, it's easier!
Just right-click the picture and choose the 2nd option (Sorry, no native English, so my computer isn't either P.
You can now just stick it in your signature like this.
Press the little picture icon and use [Ctrl] and [V].
What do I hear? The sound of success? Did you do it AGAIN?! There's just 1 thing I can say:
NOTE: You can also use this technique to stick pictures in normal posts.
NOTE #2: Links work the same way, just click the link icon, 3 spots next to the picture icon.
Youtube Links and the mystery around it.
Alright, so youtube links are always a huge mystery, and I'll solve it in this guide as well.
Say you want to show others a fabulous video, like this one.
Well, good for newcomers, but you should re-size your images, your guide is not transparent. Add some effects to make the pictures look a bit different(darker, lighter, etc.), than the original sythe look.
-This isn't the guide section
-Your pictures match what they're being viewed from, so it's an eyesore!
-Most of this is completely obvious to anyone who belongs on this forum, but I suppose it's alright to post. The guide itself isn't attractive though, and is pretty boring and cluttered. Take a work on it.
