    Nimekuwa naulizwa maswali mengi sana katika PM, wengi nilikuwa nawapa majibu kwa kuwaelekeza kwenda kwenye topic hii:


    Sasa nimeona nianzishe rasmi topic hii ambayo nitakuwa naiangalia kwa karibu sana na kujibu kila swali na kuhakikisha kila anayeuliza anaridhika na majibu yangu.

    Namna ya kujisajili (How to Register):

    You cannot post anything on JamiiForums without registering (currently), but registration is so simple and all you need is to follow the link

    http://www.jamiiforums.com/register.php

    Which is below JamiiForums Logo

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Register

    When you hit the Register button, you will be redirected to:

    Register at JamiiForums |The Home of Great Thinkers

    Please Enter Your Date of Birth Month:

    [​IMG]

    Pls enter your month of birth, day and Year. Then hit the Proceed button.

    You will need to be above 13 to be accepted registration!

    >>> Then, you will be redirected to:

    JamiiForums |The Home of Great Thinkers Rules

    [​IMG]

    These are the Rules before registering, you then will be supposed to tick the box below the rules (if you accept the rules) and click the Register button:

    [ v ] I have read, and agree to abide by the JamiiForums |The Home of Great Thinkers rules.

    You will be redirected to the place where you will see this message:

    Please enter your desired user name, your email address and other required details in the form below:

    [​IMG]

    The Username Box:

    You can put the Real Name of yours or just any pen name. (Ukiweka username ya inayoashiria shari ama kejeli hatutairuhusu!).

    If the username you enter is currently is in Use there will be a notification below it in a red background e.g:

    ... and if you enter a nickname which is unique (not in use by someone on JF then a green notification will pop up below it as follows:

    The password section (boxes):

    Pls enter the password that you cannot forget easily, re-enter it to confirm on the right box.

    The Email Section:

    Pls enter the valid email (not necessary but important) and confirm it in the next box, you can copy it from the first box and paste it in the right box.

    It's important to use an email that's valid as once your registration is approved we'll send an email to you as a notification on the validation & whenever you have a Private Message (PM) or Friendship Request on the Forums.

    Random Question:

    To verify that you're a human being, we've to ask you who's the current president of Tanzania. If you're not a Tanzanian, we recommend you to google and see the last name (Kikwete) and enter the name on the box.


    Addition Info:

    [​IMG]

    You can enter the username (not a real name but a nickname on JF) of the person who introduced you to JamiiForums. That will give that person credits for inviting friends to JamiiForums.

    You will be almost done, then hit the Complete Registration button!

    We'll review your registration and within 1-60minutes your registration will be processed and a notification sent to you via Email that we've approved your registration!

    To be continued...

    Text Editors:

    We (on JamiiForums) have to types of Text editors:

    The Quick Reply Editor (not recommended but can be used):

    [​IMG]

    The 'Quick Reply' editor is below any discussion.

    And,

    The Advanced Reply Editor.

    [​IMG]

    You can get the 'Advanced Reply' Editor by clicking

    [​IMG]

    or

    [​IMG]

    or

    Go Advanced

    I do recommend to Click Preview Post to see how your text looks like before you click on 'Submit Reply' or 'Submit New Thread'. That will help you to format your text in format of your wish.

    SIGNATURES:

    What is the signature for?

    After you have registered, you may set your signature. This is a piece of text that you would like to be inserted at the end of all your posts, a little like having headed note paper.

    We enabled signatures so that you will have the option to include your signature on any posts you make. If you have specified a signature, then the forum will automatically append your signature to any messages you post. You can disable signatures on a per-post basis by un-ticking the 'Show Signature' checkbox when you compose your message.

    You may turn the signature on and off on posts you have already made by editing the post and altering the state of the 'Show Signature' option.

    You can set your signature by editing your profile.

    To edit your profile go to:
    User CP which will look like this:

    [​IMG]


    LOST PASSWORDS:

    I lost my password, what can I do?

    If you forget your password, please send a RESET request to
    webmaster@jamiiforums.com and we will help you as soon as possible.

    AVATAR:

    How do I get a picture under my username?

    Avatars are small graphical images that you may choose in your profile. They are displayed by your username on all posts that you make. You can select the image that best describes yourself from your profile options.

    These small images are called Avatars. They are displayed below your username on all posts that you make. There are two kinds of avatars: those provided by JamboForums.com and those that you upload yourself.

    We provided a set of avatars and are enabled, you may select an avatar that best describes your personality.

    We also have enabled custom avatars, which allows you to upload an avatar image from your computer.

    Sending Private Messages (PM)


    Private messages work a little like email, but are limited to registered members of this forum. You may be able to include vB Code, smilies and images in private messages that you send.

    You may send a private message to a member of this forum by clicking the 'Send New Message' link in the private messaging section of your user control panel, or by clicking the button in a member's posts.

    When you send a message, you have the option to save a copy of the message in your Sent Items folder.

    Private Message Folders

    By default, you will have two folders in your private message area. These are the Inbox and the Sent Items folders.

    The Inbox folder contains any new messages you receive, and allows you to view all the messages you have received, along with the name of the person who sent the message to you, and the date and time the message was sent.

    The Sent Items folder contains a copy of any messages that you have sent, where you have specified that you wish to keep a copy of the message for future reference.

    You may create additional folders for your messages by clicking the '
    Edit Folders' link.

    Each folder has a set of message controls which allow you to select messages, then either move them to one of your custom folders, or delete them completely. You may also have a button which allows you to forward multiple messages from a folder to another member of the forum.

    You will need to periodically delete old messages, as the administrator has probably set a limit to the number of private messages you can have in your folders. If you exceed the number of messages specified by the administrator, you will not be able to send or receive new messages until you delete some old messages.

    Whenever you read a message, you will have the option to reply to the message, or forward that message to another member of the forum. You may also have the ability to forward that message to multiple members of your buddy list.

    Mimi nataka niweke image katika signature yangu, lakini feature yake iko disabled. Pia naomba uniongezee kidogo size ya file katika avatar ili niweke my more iteresting avatar. Najua unaepuka kuwa na website nzito, ndo maana umelimit baadhi ya graphics na heavy files, lakini mkuu, unaweza kuniwekea hizo feature walau peke yangu?

    nakushukuru sana Invisible, lakini kwa upande wa ku-attach doc au picha bado nikuwa nafuata procedure kama ulivyoeleza but nikifika kwenye ku-apload napata shida kidogo kwani na-apload nikifiri tayari bt ukiangalia unakuta bado.

    Vilevile kuna ile attachment inatokea direct mtu kuison hata kama si member anawezaiona directly bila kuji-register, ntashukuru ukinielimisha kwa hilo.
