    I decided to make one thread for these tips. DO NOT REPLY TO THIS THREAD. I would ask questions in the new message board thread.
    Here: https://gopherpucklive.com/topic/new-bbpress-wordpress-based-forum/ So let’s kick this off with profile photos

     

    HOW TO ADD PROFILE & COVER PHOTOS

    Profiles are a bit different here. You have a profile photo (or avatar) that you had before. But you also get a cover photo in your profile.

    Profile Photo: These are square, though using a transparent gif or png you can get around that a bit. The minimum size is 150px x 150px. I think a great size to use is actually 300×300. Just need to keep the file size under 250k or so. You can do a square crop of it once it is loaded. Sorry, animated GIFS no longer work here. Looking for solutions to bring that back.

    Cover Photo: These are wide and short images for your profile screen. Need to be 1000px – 1200px wide, but that is tricky with the 256k files size max. Once you upload it will give you a crop of what it will look like.

    Where? Just go to the “User” menu up top. Select “View Profile”. Once in your profile, you just need to click the gear and select “Edit profile”. Then there are two photos. Make sure you pict the correct one when doing your profile or cover photo. You can also add other info like your Instagram page, LinkedIn and what not.

    Not Tech Savvy? Just send a photo to admin@gopherpucklive.com and tell me you want to use it for your profile or cover photo and I can take care of the rest.

    HOW TO HIDE/SHOW CONTENT (SPOILER)

    Use this code to hide content. There is no button for it. I had to use an extra dashes to demonstrate.

    So REMOVE the dashes to get it to work when you use it.
    [-spoiler-]Testing Hidden Content[-/spoiler-]

    To get this:

    Spoiler

    Testing Hidden Content

    [collapse]

    You should be able to put content underneath the spoiler.
