    DFI members as all of you have noticed that we have moved to Vbulletin 4 - the next generation of software a whole new interface has popped up which is quite different from the old version 3
    let me inform all members that its not a style change just that has taken place its more in the likes of upgrading your computer from windows XP to Windows 7
    As a result many of you might find it difficult to use old features that have so much been a part of us , we assure you your experience of DFI only gets better with time we do not take a step backwards you will be amazed to know that this new software version gives you much more than the old one we will be upgrading all the features one by one.


    THIS THREAD IS CREATED SO THAT THE DFI TEAM can inform all of you about how to use all the features of the software the dfi staff will make tutorials on various important features on DFI and how you can use them to your advantage
    THE THREAD WILL BE UPDATED WITH NEW TUTORIALS AS FEATURES ARE BEEN ADDED.

    New: Micro-Comments Feature

    Dear members,

    Please take advantage of our new Micro-comments feature. Micro-comments are tiny posts within posts that are related to the post. Instead of one-liner posts that are either seeking clarification, or commenting on other posts, you can comment on the post itself. This helps reduce clutter, and broadens your forum experience.

    To post a micro-comment for a post, look for the [​IMG] button on its lower-left corner.

    You will see a small text-box. It's small for a reason, so you could keep the micro-comments "micro".

    [​IMG]

    Once posted, the micro-comment will appear like this:

    [​IMG]

    General rules and guidelines apply with micro-comments, don't spam, stay away from insults or bickering.

    When I click on the micro-comment icon, it gives a '\/' mark in green. I don't get a text box as such.
    Do I need to change some settings somewhere?

    Reloading what?

    Mobile browsers don't support AJAX, and this feature needs it.
