Guide to posting a support topic.

Postby Chris » Sat Oct 29, 2011 8:27 am

Steps to take before asking for help:

  • Have a look and make sure the question you are asking has not already been answered in a previous topic.
  • Do your research
  • When asking a question, explain your problem in detail. Posting a topic with just some code and a question such as "Can someone fix this?" will nearly make people not want to help. Often this leads to the problem taking longer to resolve.
  • If your problem is programming related. Make sure you post all the important things about how the code is put together. Make sure your code is neatly written, for example by using indentation between compile statements.
  • When posting PHP use code=php tag
    Code: Select all
    [code=php]<?php .... ?>[/code]
  • Add to the title of your topic, [solved] when your issue is resolved.
