Understanding AFN

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

Hey. Random maybe. But I’m not use to these forums. I am struggling with finding how to put pics in journal and can we do vid? I take it no... not a problem if not :)
Also. When I got told the forum name. I struggled to find it despite having typed it exactly. Am I doing it wrong ? How do you find stuff without searching through recent activity and guessing lol. Technophobe!!

Hello! Sorry you're having difficulty. When you are in a thread or journal, directly underneath the box that you type in, you should see the option to "upload a file". If you click that, it will allow you to upload a pic/vid. The vid file needs to be a link to YouTube/Instagram or something like that. Let me know if that helps. If not I can take screen shots and post them for ya!
