Sticky Messages or Tags

I see the new posts can have a tag (not tried it yet) but I guess if a subject is really important, we can set a tag that can be searched in some other way other than a general search - so set this to example tag to try it.

However wouldn't it be great if we could set a subject to become a 'sticky post' That way we could import info that has been answered many times over many posts that would help new (or forgetful users) quickly see all the posts under sticky and then not need to spend time asking something to which an answer may already be provided. In addition we in turn that have found shortcuts/fixed or done something that we think is useful to pass on. could set a stick so others could benefit from that post. So how about it NINOx why not add more tags instead of just 'example' and 'printing'. You can help us to help other users better!

    Great idea Mel. How about 'FAQ' or 'Pinned' or 'Sticky'. 

    I am sure we can come up with some common questions and then divvy them up between us to offer some standard answers that users can easily refer to.

    Shall we start with a list of FAQs? Who else would be up for this?

     

    Regards John

    I am willing to help.

    I just tried out the code block and that is cool. Plus you can add line numbers.

    I don't see how to add a tag? or is it as simple as #Example?

    Yes, just tried the block code Fred , very good. 

     

    Give me a few days and I'll come back with the beginnings of a FAQ list.

  • Fred the tag is added via the post, I suspect you already know this but there are only 2 set up and you can't add. I guess we need Ninox to add a few more for us. So if we come up with list on this post I'll copy all the suggestion and whack it over to Support ...

    If we can cover quite a few basics then at least we can just say the answer is in the tags (or it even gives us a quick search of that section. I'll be the first to say that I am not as clever you you guys but I am more than happy to help out other newbies where I can. 🙂

    Fred does the code block do anything clever ie manipulate the post in any way or what?

    Gotta say although the new forum is not perfect (what is) it is streets ahead of the old system.

    Cheers guys
