Event Calendar

The Events calendar, and the mini calendar on the home page, functions similar to the forums.

Use the Event Calendar to post upcoming Events, Meetings, Tournaments, or any other event that may be of interest to the other members. Please be sure to add specific details and contact info.

There are three types of events on the Events Calendar: single events, ranged events and recurring events.

Single Events are one-time events, such as a special presentation of Primo Grills on the Food Network.

Ranged Events happen over a select period of days, such as a weekend gathering or cook-off competition.

Recurring Events repeat over a set period of time based on certain criteria. Examples would be an event that occurs on the first Monday of every month or an event that occurs every weekend.

Set your viewing preferences

If you want to have newer posts appear at the top of the thread, or if you want to have the first post at the top and the replies fall under that one, go to HOME page, click on MESSAGE BOARDS in the top blue bar, click on one of the message board sections, look at the bottom left of the page in DISPLAY OPTIONS, and there you can set your preferences. The top blue bar is your fastest navigation feature, although there is a dropdown menu at the bottom of each page (not the HOME page) that will let you JUMP to other message boards. In your MEMBER PROFILE you can click on EDIT OPTIONS and scroll down to the 'Thread Display Options' box and change the settings to LINEAR - NEWEST FIRST, and you don't have to scroll to the last page or bottom of a thread to see the latest reply(s). If you are just monitoring new posts, you can stay on the HOME page and just refresh your browser every once in a while to see new posts/replies. At the bottom of most pages, there is a page number block that shows up if there are multiple pages connected to that page.

How to add a photo to your post.
For this tutorial, I am assuming your photo is in the PrimoGrillForum Photo Gallery. (How do I post a photo in the Photo Gallery?)

The best way to do this is to open 2 sessions in your web browser. The first to post a message, the second to view the Photo Gallery

Navigate your way to the photo you want to add to your message. Scroll down until you see Direct Link:

Highlight the link

and copy it to your clipboard. I like to use keyboard shortcuts. (CTRL-C in Windows, Command-C on a Mac)

Switch back to your post window, click on the message forum you want to post your message and click to start a new message.

When you get to the part of your message where you want to post the photo, click on the Insert Image icon in the toolbar.
You will see a dialog box simillar to this:

See that 'http://' in the dialog box? Delete it OR use a right click to add the photo address.

Paste content of your clipboard (CTRL-V in Windows, or Command-V on a Mac) into this dialog box.
