User guide to the new software.


War Hero
So the new software is here and for those that have not had the chance to use it on ARRSE here is a simple guide to some of the features.

If you have questions post them and I will do my best to answer them.

Posting images from your device

You can post images from the web using the image button in the editor but if you want to upload an image here is how.

The top box is the media insert buttons. You need a URL for those. The bottom box (Upload a file) is the one to get something off your machine on to the post.

Click upload a file and select which one you want to use from your machine.

The image is saved below

You get two options at this stage. Either full image (as you can see here) or a thumbnail. The choice is yours, I tend to go full. In the post there will be an option for people to click on the image to make it bigger. You have to select one of the two options for the image to be posted.

If you want to delete an image you edit your post (small blue words at bottom) and select Delete on images.

Use of likes etc

The like button has been improved

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 17.30.07.png

As you can see there are some new options.

Like - you like this post.
Dislike - You dislike this post
Laugh - made you laugh and you think it is funny.
Informative - the post was informative and of value
Bullshit - rubbish, more than a disagree. The poster will get a negative point for this - use wisely
Old - Been done before and frankly a search would have saved you trouble.
WTF - Send keymat over. Frankly I see words, but not any order or sense.

Click on the one you want and well done. You can de-select and start again (useful for fat fingers on an iPhone). You can see who has selected what by clicking on list.

Main take away. Bullshit is there for genuine calling out. If you do not like the post click dislike.

My post - what it all means

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 17.39.42.png

So top right you have Watch/Unwatch thread. Click this if you want to follow a thread but not post yet. You will get alerts and it will show up on your Watch Threads

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 17.41.26.png

You can do the same for a forum

At the bottom you will see less than shown, you don't get to do IP checks.

Report. Important, Mods can't be everywhere so if you see something click report.

Edit. Obvious.

Delete - now this one is new. Nothing is ever deleted. What this does is soft delete your post so it is no longer public. Mods and Admin can still see it. If you want to get rid for ever speak to Admin.

Last read post

As part of the software upgrade the system will not remember the last post you read before the install. So now when you click on posts you will be taken to the first post until you view the last post - so to speak.


Want to highlight a thread or post to someone? Tag them. Type @ then the start of the username. A drop down list will appear and you can select them - @Purple_twiglet or @SEP86

They will receive and alert (if they have set it in their preferences) and can veiw the thread or post as well. If they like it they can then click Watch Thread at the top of the postings to follow.

PMs are now Conversations.

At the top of your page you will see an Inbox. Here is your PM's of old. You can do mulitipule addresses.

PM's can be reported within the conversation if you are receive unwanted material.
