Can someone explain the Macro option functionality of your message board?

Hi Tony,


Here is some informatio on Macros for you:

Macros let you create boilerplate text that you can paste into any message with the click of a mouse.

To set up a macro:

  1. Click My Settings and click the Macros tab.
    You can create up to nine macros.
  2. Type a name for the fist macro in the Macro 1 Title box.
    Make the name short, but memorable (you'll choose it by name from a menu).
  3. Type the text you want to be able to paste in the Macro 1 box.
    If your community allows HTML, you can use HTML tags in your macro.
  4. Enter names and text for your other macros.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Note: If you want to have special text at the bottom of post, you can put that text in a signature instead of a macro.

To use a macro when you post:

  1. Go to a Post page.
    The Macros menu is on the right side of the Post page toolbar. You can use a macro in any sort of post: a message, a reply, a comment, an idea, you name it.
  2. Click in the Subject or Body area where you want to paste the macro text.

    Tip: It's a good idea to keep your subjects short, though.

  3. Choose a macro in the Macros menu.
    That's all there is to it! The text of your macro appears wherever your cursor was.
