I should think that most of the help for the forums are actually applicable across other forums for different topics! So this is a really helpful thread for me! It's really made it easier for me to navigate around the place and find the information I need! Cheers!

Is there a way to ban a certain ASF member from some threads so the rest of the community can enjoy it in peace?
Not exactly. You can add them to your ignore list to filter them out... or, if they are really causing serious issues, you can contact me directly and I can try and solve the problem by having a word to them.

Most likely very simple but i will ask, how does posters put in the green @debtfree when addressing them in a post? Does this send them a message even if they are not watching the thread?

Cheers ... debtfree

Edit: Just noticed after posting it, by actually typing it and once posted it becomes active. Need to know the second question anyway,

The ASF member you have tagged will receive an alert that you have mentioned them. By clicking that alert they will then be taken to the post in question.

Is there a way of marking a reply so you don’t lose it
So you can reply to it at a later date.

I find this happens to me a lot and I find myself looking for ages to find the thread and post?

I am sure Joe will answer, but its a good point Mr Duck, I just liked your post to see if there was some way to look at all the posts I have liked (which would allow members to 'mark' and find posts for such a purpose), but there doesnt seem to be a way of listing posts you have liked either?

Tech, do you mean like bookmarking a post, so you can return to it later and reply? If so, that functionality doesn't exist as yet. However, it's a very interesting idea and I will so some digging and see if it is possible.

Yeh that’s it
Believe it or not, I have just found an add-on that does this and have installed it already. Would be interested in any feedback. This is how it's used:

1. You'll see a "Bookmark" link next to the "Report" link at the bottom of each post.
2. Simply click this link and add a note.
3. Access your list of bookmarked posts by clicking on the "Account" icon, which is located next to your PMs, and selecting "Bookmark List" on the right and near the bottom, just above "Log Out".

Let me know if this fits the bill.

It would also be nice to increase the amount of posts per page.
OK, I'm on a roll tonight. In the core software this is a global setting that cannot be changed by individual forum users. So, to change it for one I'd have to change it for all. However, I found an add-on that does this and have gone ahead and installed it. If you go to your "Preferences" in your account you will now find that you set the amount of posts, threads and conversations (PMs) per page. I have set the options to 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50, although these can be changed.

Could you please experiment with this and let me know if it is working OK? Thanks.

I'm starting this thread to give you all little hints and tips on how to make the most of Aussie Stock Forums. This forum software has so many features that even I'm constantly discovering new ones! :D

Did you know that Aussie Stock Forums can automatically send you an email everytime a new post is added to any thread you specify?

At the top of each page of a thread you will see an option called 'Thread Tools'. If you click on this you will notice a number of options - one of which is 'Subscribe to this Thread'. If you select this option you will then be taken to a menu in the 'Subscriptions' section of the User Control Panel where you can select from one of four options:

1. No email notification
2. Instant notification by email
3. Daily updates by email
4. Weekly updates by email

Simply make your selection, click 'Add Subscription' and you're done! :)
Hi I have been a member for years. I used to go to the asx stock forum to see what people were saying about the Aussie shares. I used to have great chats there. When the site updated years ago I could find the latest chats on for example RIO, CBA, QBE everything seems to be years old. When looking at the asx chats area there isn't even stock starting with A to H anymore. Am I missing something I used to love this site, now I find it hard to navigate around. Surely people are talking about the above mentioned stock somewhere here.

The top group of forums is ASX Stock Chat, 3 groups below, 0-H, I-P and Q-Z - is that what you are looking for?

Thanks heaps, Joe. It's working great!
As I've opted out of the General Chat, my list of "top 20" threads with new content often had less than ten entries and I was "Next"ing forever. Set to 50, I get just about everything new since yesterday, ready to browse and reply.
