      TIPS & FEATURES AEuro-Forum - READ!!   10/25/2016

      Tips and Features of AEuromotive Technical Site 1.    Quick Peek Feature:       Hover over any Topic/POST within a Specific Forum or NEW POST.  You’ll notice a pop up window displaying the Original (FIRST POST)
      tab containing the vehicle Information and the Diagnostic Issue.  Next to the FIRST POST tab, there is the LATEST POST tab.
      This is the LATEST Reply to that Topic/POST.  It may contain the FIX,NOT FIXED, or UPDATE to the ongoing Topic/POST. 2.    SEARCH Feature: If you have not tried the SEARCH Engine, I’d advise that you do.
      START at the YELLOW Arrow. Then choose from the flip out flag where you wish to begin your initial search. 
      Use Word, or Words separated by a space or comma.  The more words you enter, the wider the search. 
      DO NOT use words like: the, of, abbreviations will not work.  BE Specific!       You’ll be directed to the second “Refinement Page”.  From there, you can narrow the search criteria, by clicking
      +MORE SEARCH OPTIONS. From there attempt to use both sides of the OPTIONS Menu. 
      USE the SEARCH Engine and get comfortable with navigating it. 2a. TSB/SIB/Recalls/Campaigns SEARCH Feature:       Currently, I am working on having the Feature to SEARCH ONLY for TSB/SIB/Recalls/Campaigns for this site. 
      This is in YELLOW type, as it is currently under development.  I hope to get this to work within the initial SEARCH
      Feature when you CLICK in the SEARCH Field, that "flag" will kick out.  In that Categories list, you'll see a TSB link.
      Within this link, when clicked, you'll choose the MAKE of the vehicle.  Immediately, ENTER all of the WORD or WORDS
      within the TEXT SEARCH FIELD. CLICK the MAGNIFYING GLASS, OR ENTER.
      ALL Technical Service Bulletins RELATED to THAT MAKE will be SEARCHED, and DISPLAYED. 
      I am planning on doing a few other MODS to this system.  For now, use this FEATURE. I have already ran through some tests with BMW, Mercedes and VW/Audi.        IT WORKS!.  Note! I still have hundreds of TSB/SIB/Recalls,Campaigns, and other related Technical Service Bulletins!
      And this is NOT counting the Domestic and Asian Vehicle MAKES!!  OH, Whoa is ME!!
      Approximately 789 additional FACTORY TSB's in General to do for European.....over 1400 additional TSB Documents
      for Domestic and Asian.  I WILL GET THEM DONE, BUT i HAVE TO DO IT MY WAY (I GIVE GOOD MASSAGE)! FEEDBACK IS ALWAYS WELCOMED....GOOD OR BAD.  GROW A SET AND TALK TO ME.  IF SOMETHING ISN'T RIGHT,
      TELL ME.  MY SKIN LAST MEASURED WITH MY CALIPER WAS 4.378.9" THICK!  USE THIS AND MANY OTHER FEATURES MY FRIENDS! PETER AND I ARE TIRELESSLY ATTACKING THIS SITE WITH $$$$$$
      AND HARD, TIME CONSUMING WORK.  IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED............YOU ARE NOT LOOKING!! 3.    Technical Documents Tab: By clicking the Technical Documents Tab, you can SEARCH for TSB’s, SIB’s, and Campaigns.
      and Recalls are available to you.  We have over 1500 document of Factory Level that can help. 
      Again, USE the SEARCH Engine to narrow your results.  Get comfortable with using this great resource. 4. HYPERLINKED Text Within REPLIES in the Topic / POST, Hyperlinks can be added to that reply, or an original Topic / POST.
      It is important that the browser that you are using is set to OPEN a new TAB when a click is clicked. In MOZILLA Browser, quite easy to do.
      Go to the top of your MOZILLA browser and click TOOLS > OPTIONS > GENERAL (on the left sidebar). 
      Then check the check box that states "Open New Windows in a new tab instead" Then, when you click a helpful Hyperlink, a new tab, and windows will open to your top right and will go to the
      hyperlinked page! WARNING!! I would advise, if you are NOT "Computer Literate"....NOT to attempt to Hyperlink Text, as this
      may cause damage to your POST.  ONLY Experienced, "Computer Savvy" Technicians are capable of
      doing this action. 5. STORE Page Check out our STORE.  We have a number of items from Diagnostic Machines, Scanners, Software,
      Training Manuals, and anything that you may wish to purchase.  If it's not there....contact us regarding
      your needs.  We are there to service your everyday Diagnostic and Computer needs.....ALL OEM. NONE of our scanners and Diagnostic Computers are "CLONES, or CLONED" Software.  It is all
      within the "LEGIT" realm for ONLINE and OFFLINE Diagnostic Purposes.  Technology can be your
      friend........or your enemy.  It is your choice.............you get what you pay for HERE!! 6. Member Map This FEATURE is used by ALL Members to locate another Member.  This FEATURE is useful to: Locate another Member in the AREA for help Locate a Member who can help your customer stranded in another Member's Area Quick Location of all the Members of this Collective Help each other make $$$$$$$$$$$$$ Please click the Member Map tab, and register your location.  This system works well for
      all of the Members and may provide you with valuable information, in which to promote
      your Facility!           7. CLOSING/Updating your Topic/POSTS            It is imperative that ALL Topic/Posts are updated on at least a weekly basis, while also, CLOSING your
                Topic/POSTS when you have completed your repairs.  ALL POSTS MUST be CLOSED within 21 Days, or
                updated to keep your ongoing POST from being suspended.           Every time a Member Logs into the site, that member can check how many POSTS he has opened. 
                When first logged in, you will see an initial screen with all of the ongoing POSTS that are OPEN.

                If there are more than 3 OPEN or ongoing POSTS, the Member will NOT be able to add another
                Topic/POST, until one of the 3 POSTS are CLOSED.  If by chance you missed that opening screen
                follow this procedure to see what POSTS are currently OPEN.          Click the “Activity” tab > then click “My Activity Streams” > then click “My Open Topics.          This will display all of your current OPEN POSTS.  From there, you can close them, if you forgot to,
               or they are NOT FIXED, or FIXED.  PLEASE, be detailed in the last REPLY, so this will help another
               Member at some time, whether you FIXED or did NOT FIX the vehicle.  Details are what help us all, so
               please be a productive Member of this site.  I for one will appreciate your efforts.         8. FACEBOOK & Twitter Links         For now, located by the AEUROMOTIVE Logo, you'll see some small Facebook & Twitter links.  Mind you,
              these will be replaced with larger ICONS.  This is being worked on as I type.  My coder is getting this accomplished.
              For now, they are linked to the AEuromotive Facebook, and to Peter's Twitter Account LIVE.  I DON'T "TWEET"
             You wish to know my opinion...........better grow an extra inch of skin, then call me and ask.
             Try them, use this to contact Peter.        Again, when this TEXT turns White, it is totally implemented!         9. PICTURES IN POSTS         This FEATURE has been implemented.  When inserting a picture within the POST, make it as small as possible
              to fit within the constraints of the frame.  Any one can then CLICK on the PICTURE to open a new window and
              see the LARGER Version that you had uploaded to the POST.  Please try to keep the original picture within
              2 - 3 MEG in size!  Once you upload the picture, click on that picture and use the corners to shrink
              to fit.       10. F5 "REFRESH" Feature         This has always been a WINDOWS Feature, but I thought I'd put this up for those that didn't know:         I have tested FF, IE7, Opera and Chrome.    F5 usually updates the page only if it is modified. The browser usually tries to use all types of cache as much
             as possible and adds an "If-modified-since" header to the request. Opera differs by sending a "Cache-Control: no-cache"        CTRL-F5 is used to force an update, disregarding any cache. IE7 adds an "Cache-Control: no-cache", as does FF,
            which also adds "Pragma: no-cache". Chrome does a normal "If-modified-since" and Opera ignores the key. Please Note!  I will be adding to this ANNOUNCEMENT periodically, so keep coming back to this, and see what other
      Features I have added.  I still have a dozen to add to this ANNOUNCEMENT, as we have upgraded this Forum since
      yesterday 10/24/2016.  Stay Tuned!!
