When responding to a personal message, keep messages as conversations by quoting the other's message. Don't want to quote? Hit reply on the message instead.



(Hitting reply on your own message will only get yourself a message)


Trying to beat @myi's record? Just do the opposite ;)

I Would usually try to quote the original post, so they know what I'm responding to or referring to.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I thought of that. But being it's a few posts away and with that self explanatory title, I didn't think it was necessary.

Please don't use Tapatalk for personal messages, as even when quoting a previous message it comes up as 2 different conversations :(

How does one create a hyperlink in a DDMS comment like this guy?

Is there a thread for advanced DDMS site tricks? I thought the people in this thread (i.e. you) would be more helpful than just posting it in the DDMS post discussion thread.

Alright you win :P (perhaps next time reply to the comment)
I'm assuming it can be done using simple HTML:
Code: [Select]
<a href="https://www.dansdeals.com">DansDeals</a>

Did I forget to mention? GIYF
Please do us a favor and use proper spelling when using :D

Thanks :)

I wanted to ask because there's no preview button on DDMS to see if the code works. I guess the only way to know for sure is to test it...

Fantastic tool for creating tables - just paste your spreadsheet data and it spits out a properly-formatted BBC table.

I used it to create the tables here in 5 seconds flat.

I believe only mods can do it, that particular example is definitely modded

Is there a way to star a post that I want to remember, so when I will be searching I can just search the comments that I starred?

Perhaps @Yehudaa can let us know if it worked.

Simply no.
I'd recommend 2 options:
Either to like the specific post and then you'd have to go through your liked posts (non searchable).
Or to copy the qoute from the post, and send it to yourself as a personal message, which can then be assigned a custom label. (Also not searchable but how many things do you need to star anyway..)

I haven't tried. I'll go test it on some old post :)
