You can ping users by posting their username with an β€˜@’ in front like @Lars2i or @Mifactori – they will get a notification about it.

To embedd a video into your topic just paste the link from YouTube or Vimeo into your topic. The link will automatically transform into an embedded video.

Some people (mostly Mac-Users) have problems to post text from Microsoft Word into a topic. A simple workaround is to paste the text into Google Translate or a simple .txt document empty txt doc.txt and copy it from there into the topic. This will erase the formatting information around the text that causes the problem.

Pro Tip: the forum uses markdown. If you don’t want to use the edit bar you can write markdown directly. Learn about it here.
