    I know we rolled this board out quick and didn't get a chance to put together tutorials, but I can't remember if I mentioned this.

    One of the things that is different about this board that makes it easier to formate your messages is that you can highlight text and then hit a button to put the beginning and ending format codes on it. On the previous board, this deleted the text. That doesn't happen now.

    Just thought I would let y'all know.

    Well, that worked better than last time. I still would like to know how to get the letters huge like some I had seen. I tried using font size pull down, but apparently it didn't work.

    I'm actually trying to work on that. I don't know how familiar you are with html, but what the BBCode does is uses the bracket code we are putting in our messages and applies html code to it through the program. So the [ size=36] SHOULD be the same as the html 36 pt. But for some reason it isn't. I don't know why and I'm TRYING to figure it out, but haven't gotten there yet.

    You'll know when I get it figured out.

    That would be good. For some reason, the TECH spellout each week just doesn't seem too spirited. The larger letters gave more of a sense of shouting. These smaller letters seem more like a bunch of timid fans. Hmmmmm ops:

    Find the post you want to quote and click on the "quote" box on the top right of that post.

    A "posting" box will open with the quoted text and code already included. Then, just type your message.

    November 19 @ #7 Florida Gators Preseason NIT (ESPN2) 6:00 p.m.

    November 24 Millsaps College 2:00 p.m.
    You can do something like this:
    <table border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="4" >
    <tr><td>November 6</td> <td>Spirit Express (Exhibition)</td><td>8:00 p.m.</td></tr>
    <tr><td>November 12 </td><td>VASDA (Exhibition)</td><td>7:00 p.m.</td></tr>
    <tr><td>November 19</td><td>@ #7 Florida Gators Preseason NIT (ESPN2)</td><td>6:00 p.m.</td></tr>
    <tr><td>November 21</td><td>2nd Round Preseason NIT</td></tr>
    <tr><td>November 24</td><td>Millsaps College</td><td>2:00 p.m</td></tr></table>

    To do that, click the box to enable HTML in posts. Then use a HTML table with the appropriate formatting to create the table. You may want to create the table in something like FrontPage which is a little easier and then just copy the HTML code over. Remember to use the &lt; &gt; instead of the [] for your code. This table was done with the properties border=1, cellspacing=4, and cellpadding=1.

    Make sure you do NOT check the "Disable BBCode in this post" box under the message when you post.

    It should work then! 8-)

    I've got the basketball schedule done. It took me some time because it originally had a lot of blank space at the top of the post, but it's fixed.

    I'll work on Women's BB next, then baseball (still a long way from that).
