#Hashtags and @Tags

#DidyouKnow that you can use a hashtag (#) within forum posts to add context to your messages and help people discover related threads.  In the same way as a twitter hashtag, you can click on the tagged post and see all of those topics marked with that hashtag.   Can I urge everyone to try and tag their topics with Hashtags to improve searchability.

Secondly, you can use @ tags to alert a member that you've mentioned them in a post.  So, if you're following up on a thread, use the @ followed by their username, e.g. @ElNumbre to notify them of their involvement, especially where you're looking for a response.  They're automatically included in quotes, but if you're just continuing a discussion, add an @ to their name so they know.

New Feature - Giphy Gifs.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so who knows how much an animated picture adds.  
To that end, I've now added the ability to easily add animated GIFs to your forum posts through the GIPHY service.

This uses the enhanced editor on the desktop version of the site (sorry, mobile users) by clicking the GIPHY icon on the toolbar

You then simply search for an appropriate meaning or response, and it automatically adds it to your post.

How To: Image Posting

A few people have asked how to add images to the site.  There are several providers who support sharing with phpBB forums - this guide is for my favourite,   https://www.imgur.com which has a reasonable Web Interface and Mobile App.  This guide covers posting from the desktop web app.

1) Make sure you're registered
Goto the website, and click Sign In.
You'll get a pop-up box, and next to the sign-in button, you'll see a link saying 'need an account?'  Click that, and you'll be prompted to register.
