Seems to me that all we need to do, is get a thread, with links to the other tutorial threads on it, and have our Admin make it a "sticky." Only problem, no one reads "stickies." (Seen it at too many Forums, by now. Has to do with the RTFM rule, which men just don't do.)(Oh, RTFM, stands for Read the ------ {service?} Manual.)

10 ER, stripped down.
Basic 10ER, Parts machine. Will be a semi-dedicated drill-press machine.
10 ER, a "survivor" of the trailer fire, in the back yard, needing restoration. Has a Mk5 headrest. Finally, stripped down.
Numerous parts, for Model 10 stuff. Except for lower saw guard, A and B adapters, I've got it.

Looking for one more, or some 9 inch extension table raisers.

JPG, this place may be the exception that proves the rule, but in my (never to be) humble opinion, the best place to hide ANYTHING, is to hide it in a "sticky."

But then, those other Fora were computer "geek" type fora. Here, where people are used to "RTFM," this is a different story.

Oh, the second example, last post was early into BHO's FIRST administration. And, it was the thread starter, MickyD.

This forum uses an older version of the vBulletin software. Version 3.5.4 to be precise. The current version of vBulletin is 5.0. I don't know which version added the Library function, but I would guess it would require an update to the software to get that functionality. The vBulletin software is not free and I think Admin mentioned once before somewhere that upgrading was not in the budget. There are free equivalents - such as phpBB that my other favorite forum uses. I don't know if it's possible to transition all the old posts to new software. I would hate to lose all the old posts in a transition to new software.

Thanks rpd for posting how to addtext to hyper links . As a note when you hover over the URL button there is an example of how to add text to a url. Now if we could get spell check back (for those of us that are selling challenged)that would be a help.

Which browser are you using?

Chrome, Opera, Firefox, as others, have spell checking built in. IE still does not for some reason. :confused:
