User Cp (User Control Panel)

To access your user control panel, USER CP, click on user cp in the blue shaded area of the tool bar just below the thread title. In this example, under +++++ User Control Panel(user Cp) +++++.

In the user control panel, you have the following selections under “Settings & Options”, (left hand side of the page):
  1. Edit Signature
  2. Edit Email & Password
  3. Edit Profile
  4. Edit Timeslip
  5. Edit Options
  6. Edit Gallery
  7. Edit Avatar
Click on any of those selections to change or add information to your control panel. Keep in mind, YOU NEED 25 POSTS IN ORDER TO SETUP YOUR SIGNATURE.

EDIT SIGNATURE: The screen that opens is very similar to the post window that opens when you use the “Go Advanced” option to post a reply. Suggestion here is that you use a font like “Verdana” size “2”, so the signature is not too large and is easy to read on screen in your posts. There are a number of formatting, colors, link options available. Become familiar with those options in the tool bar above the text box.

EDIT EMAIL & PASSWORD:This is pretty straight forward, nothing complicated here.

EDIT PROFILE: Here is where you make changes to your name, address, etc. Under Optional Information – All information will be viewable by other forum members, you can add Your birth date, Instant messaging username, Details about yourself, Where you live, Your Hobbies, etc. and Zip code. In “Where You Live”, put your city/town and two digit state. For example, Omaha,NE. This will show in your posts on the upper right hand side as “Location”.

EDIT OPTIONS: This is an important section if you want to display your signature, avatar, and images in your posts.

Allow vCard Download, check box if you want others to be able to download a vCard that contains your email address and username.

Messaging & Notification Check the boxes for Receive Email from Administrators, and the box Receive Email from Other Members.

Private Messaging, Check the box to Enable Private Messaging.

Check the box to Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages. Check the box to Show New Private Message Notification Pop-up.

Thread Display Options, Check each box to Show Signatures, Show Avatars, and Show Images. If you do not check those boxes your signature, avatar or images WILL NOT be displayed in your posts.

The other options in this section are for personal preferences for how you want to see threads displayed number of posts per page, thread date cut-off.

Date & Time Options, This is self explanatory.

Miscellaneous Options, Select Enhanced Interface – Full WYSIWYG Editing.

EDIT GALLERY: Selecting this option takes you to a new window where you can setup a gallery for pictures of your Ford vehicles and upload those pictures from this page.

EDIT AVATAR: This is where you add personality to your posts by adding a picture. Two options, you can add a picture by linking to a page on the internet, your gallery, etc. or you can upload a picture from your computer. Keep in mind that the size of the custom image is limited to 120 by 100 pixels or approximately 12.2 KB. A program that I found useful is called “Shrink Pictures” and is found here: http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/ .

NEEDLESS TO SAY YOU HAVE TO SAVE YOUR CHANGES OR ADDITIONS EACH TIME YOU MAKE CHANGES OR ADJUSTMENTS.

This is a summary of how to use the User Control Panel to make your membership in FTE more enjoyable for you, the members of the Nebraska Chapter.
