  1. It should now be showing just the old ones
  2. When you post you'll see a paperclip in the text window, & an option to choose files, select the file & upload & then drag the picture to wherever you want to see it in your post.
  3. presume these are the £50 ones http://www.retro-ford.co.uk/shop/content/lotus-cortina-steel-wheels-replica-silver-55j-x-13-wr55s

    Vin decoader

    yes, click on where it says Vin Decoder in the navigation bar, then click Mk4 Vin https://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/forums/index.php?/vin-decoder/mk4vin/
  5. in Unread content you can also filter whatever you want using If you change the search criteria, you are then given the option of whether you want to save it so you can use it again by clicking Activity & selecting the search you saved
  6. I've altered the menu at the top so you have the option of unread content/all content showing newest first This is by far the most configurable version of the forum up to date. if anyone is not sure how to use it, then create a new topic in forum help, someone will usually have an answer, if not I'll try to help

  8. surely it's worth getting a stainless steel one if you can afford it
  9. Are these any good? https://www.ah-racing.co.uk/webshop/cortina-mk1-and-lotus/body-panels/cortina-floor-pan/
  10. It's probably because you were still classed as a new member, now you have over 20 posts it should be fairly easy, just click on the choose files link at the bottom of the reply box.
  11. sorry, I understand now, that was the old garage software from years ago, I've just changed the link
  12. The first time you go in, it seems to take a little while to load, it's not a permissions issue as Steve walton can get into it and he has the same permission level as yourself If you hover over the Garage button, you should see the link destination appear at the bottom left of your computer screen - is it the same as the link posted?
  13. I copied that link after pressing the button????
  14. It's a recently added feature, we need people to add some cars to it https://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/forums/index.php?app=garagedirectory&module=cars&controller=cars To add a car click the link above & click the ADD CAR button Another way of adding a car is click the +Create button at the top of the screen & click CAR
  15. Yes, it's only visible to yourself & Admin. It is a required field and we use it when someone registers to ensure that they are not spammers. We ensure the ISP, IP Address and country you are accessing the site from are the same before we validate a new user.
  16. You can either click on the envelope at the top of the screen and click new message, enter the recipients name & send, or alternatively, click on the persons name on a post they've created & click message link here if you are not sure https://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/forums/index.php?/profile/68-mk2sav/

    how to donate

    Hi Kev, link is here http://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/donations.htm I'll add it to the buttons in the menu later
  19. I must admit I wasn't too sure about it initially, but when you look at how you can configure it to you own personally taste, and the extra options I do find it much better than the old version, especially for uploading photos, and linking to youtube videos etc., especially on the mobile version. One problem which I hadn't considered until yesterday is that people that use a tablet to access the site may have been switched from the PC Desktop version to the mobile version of the site, which may cause some confusion. There is some info on how to switch back to the desktop version here for android tablet users. There are a few additions to the site which it didn't have previously - 1. Chatroom, if you want to get together and chat - https://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/forums/index.php?/chatbox/ 2. Clubs - any member can start up the ir own club - e.g say if you have a regular meet, or an event you'd like to arrange. Clubs can be open to everyone to participate or can be set to private so that only the members of the club can see the posts etc. The person who sets up the club would be the moderator, rather than the site admin/moderators. https://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/forums/index.php?/clubs/ 3. Classifieds - This is a dedicated classified area for buying and selling of cars/parts etc. Any listing will automatically list in the for sale section too. https://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/forums/index.php?/classifieds/ 4. Gallery - A place to share pictures of your motors etc https://www.buysellcortina.co.uk/forums/index.php?/gallery/ There are also some more enhancements to come soon too.

    If you are on a tablet, the chances are you are on the mobile layout, click on the 3 horizontal lines to the top right of the screen you should then see the envelope
