How to use the SiNfuL iPhone Forum!
Tips/Tricks/Features

This thread will give you tons of information on how to do certain things on the forum as well as information on all the other cool features of the forum that you may or may not already know about.

If you have any questions, comments, or other ideas that you think should be added to this guide then please feel free to post back and let me know. Thanks!

~General Tips~
  • If you are really new to forums then you can check out the link at the top of the forum. It has TONS of basic information on forum usage.
  • Please host all your signature images, attachments, or anything else you want to post on SiNfuL iPhone on a 3rd party hosting site such as ImageShack or your own personal webspace. See the File Host Suggestions List thread for more info.
  • Use the button
    We have a system here at SiNfuL iPhone. Most other forums rank users by their POST COUNT. However just because someone makes a post doesn't actually mean it's useful or not. If you find someones thread/post useful, please don't litter up the forum by posting thanks. Just simply CLICK the button! This will increase the THANKS count for that member which they will appreciate much more than you just posting the words THANKS in a thread.
  • Get to know and use the buttons at the top of the forum. Most of them are pretty self explanatory however here is an explanation for some you might not understand.
    - Clicking this button when browsing the forum using your iPhone or other mobile device will take you to a mobile device enhanced version of the forum for easier viewing.
    - If you have over 10 posts then you can view/use the Chatbox to chat with your fellow members.
    - Takes you to the SiNfuL iPhone Repo page which shows you how to add the repo to your device.
    - Takes you to the RULES page where you can review the site rules and get lots of good info about all the features of the site.
    - This button takes you into the User Control Panel where you can edit/change many options/settings that are specific to your account.
    - This button is almost as useful as the SEARCH button as it will allow you to do several things which are pretty self explanatory however I will explain some below...

    • Today's Threads - Lists only the New Threads from the current day
