Macros

Hey,

I'm a little confused about what macros are, what are they and what are they for?

Re: Macros

Here in the forums? Where did you see it/have the option to use it??

No, not on the forums but when you go onto your profile page, then click 'My Settings' next to 'Forum Help' and then it's the fourth tab in between 'Tagging' and 'Subscriptions & Bookmarks'.

Re: Macros

Hmm, I really don't know! I have just googled it though, "A macro is a collection of commands that you can apply with a single click. " So... I don't know if that makes it any clearer!!!! Sorry I can't be of more help. I reckon Lex of Mod Squad fame will know the answer to this one!

Re: Macros

Hello!

 

They are for frequently used blocks of text or images. You can add them into a macro and, when you're later replying to a post, you can select that macro from a pop-up menu that will then be available and it will post it in.

 

I'd advise to use it sparingly. No one wants to seem repetitious. Smiley Wink
