Buddha's Village Forum:
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Here is a brief explanation of some of the questions you may have about Buddha's Village Forum.

Can I put html tags anywhere in my posts?

No. You can not use HTML tags in any field except body of the message. The administrator of the Forum has the option of allowing or disallowing any HTML in the Message part of your posting. If the administrator disallows it, the script will just throw out everything in <>'s. If it is allowed, your html markup will appear in the posting. Currently, tags are allowed.

Why are there colons in the message when I try to post a followup?

Colons appear in the message dialog box when you try to followup on a message, to indicate that those lines are quoting the previous document. The administrator of the Forum can decide whether to enable or disable the quoting of previous messages. Currently, previous messages are quoted.

Why didn't my post show up?

Your post most likely did not show up because your browser did not reload the page, it simply pulled it out of your cache. Please reload your browser and it should then appear.

Where can I get the scripts for this program?

The scripts are written in Perl and created by Matt Wright. They are free to anyone who wishes to use them and you can get them as well as other scripts at: http://worldwidemart.com/scripts/.
