New Forum Tips and Tricks Part 1



Welcome to the first entry of my new blog. I'll be keeping you updated on what new things are happening on our websites, expos and other related events.

Today the server had a hard disk failure and was switched off for a couple of hours. Luckily everything was recovered, but we're gonna take the step and get a new server. It's been running for about 2 or 3 years now. All is under control, the site may be unreachable during the upgrade for a couple of hours.

How to create your own photo gallery:

Step 1

Click on "Gallery" in the top main menu. http://www.strainhun...x.php?/gallery/

Step 2

On the right side of the page click on "Upload".

Step 3

Click on "New Gallery" and enter a name and description for your gallery.

Step 4

Click save to go to the page for adding pictures.


Step 5


Click on "Choose Files" to select the files you want to upload. The advanced unloader allows you to add multiple files. It requires the latest versions of flash. If you have trouble uploading files click "try our basic uploader" for a more compatible file uplader.

Step 6

When you are done adding your pictures you can click on "Review and Publish" to save.

You can always go back and edit your gallery in the future.

How to attach pictures and post them in the forum.

Step 2

Click on "Add to Post" and the image will appear in your post.

Using the chat in a pop-out window

This is really useful if you are browsing the forum. On the click window click on this icon: blogentry-1-0-11030500-1327187611.png and the chat will be open in a pop-out window. It's located on the chat page under the user list.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
