Stuff that is specific to this site. Blog, forum or links.
First of all, find the LINKS icon in the main navigation menu at the top of every page.
Once you've done this, find the most pertinent section for the link you would like, in this example we will use 'good books', found under "BOOKS" and then "GOOD"
Now click "SUBMIT LINK".
And then copy (CTRL+C) the URL of the book's web address where it can be purchased. In this example, it can be purchased from Amazon bookstore.
Now paste (CTRL+V) the book's URL address into the "URL" input field/box, ensure the Category is correct (e.g. Books/Good) and then click "SUBMIT"
Finally, where it asks for the 'name of the web site...' enter the books TITLE, to help make it easier for people who are looking for it (and search engines, helping the rankings of book increase when named correctly). Add some information in the DESCRIPTION field to help explain briefly about the book, the author and so on. If possible, you can include standard forum codes to place images using the [img]http://image-address.com/file/name.jpg[/img] Finish this entry by clicking SUBMIT.
The end result of this particular entry can be located here and don't forget, the links CAN be discussed DIRECTLY within the link, no need to start a seperate thread each time. Just click the standard 'post reply' found at the bottom of every link.

Now, I can guess what some of you are going to say - Oh no, not again!
Hold on, hold on. Hear me out.
Yeah, I've buggered up the old blogs (well, actually - I personally didn't, but nonetheless there are issues that I cannot resolve). Whereas, I've always managed to salvage the forum data. This blog software - rather crude & lacking aesthetics as it is, is actually tied to the forum directly. Thus, I have a lot more control over it.
It is also tied to your account on the forum, which the former blogs were not. So hopefully, you can see some benefits from it. I'll attempt at some point to pull some of the data from the old to this one.
