Kreg Jig Owners Community

Here are some tips I’ve learned on how to post to the Kreg
site
including text formatting and adding links and photos

It is easy, you do not need to know how to write code.


Most everywhere you can write, you will find buttons like these:  




They look a little different throughout the site, but act similar:





(For Forums, the "File" is further down the page)


I am going to walk through making a blog showing 3 things:

1) Add text formatting

2) Add a link

3) Add a photo


Steps to add text formatting (Bold, Italic, Underline, Strike through...) - let's bold"cutting oak" in this blog:


Step 1) Select the text you want to format:



Step 2) Click the format button (in this case Bold):



That's it!  Some HTML code is added (<b>...) that will bold the text.

(For Forums, you will not see the code, it will look like the finished posting)



Steps to add a link- let's add a link from Brian's name to his page:


Step 1) In a separate window, go to the page you want to link to and copy the address (e.g. http://something.something.com/something...)



Step 2) Select the text you want the link to be attached to: (e.g. "Brian")


Step 3) Click the "link" button:


This causes a pop-up to come up:



Step 4) Paste the address you copied into text box and press "OK"


The pop-up goes away and your text looks like this:



That's it!  Lots of HTML code is added (<a ... a>), and that text will be "linked." The blue and underline is added automatically.

(For Forums, you will not see the code, it will look like the finished posting)


Steps to add a photo - let's show a photo of the taped wood.


Step 1) You can add a picture anywhere in the text.  Put your courser where you want the picture to appear, then press the "photo" button.


The photo pop-up comes up:



Step 2) Click "Browse..." and navigate to your photo (this will act like your standard file folders - click on the file, then click "open"). The pop-up will now look like this:

Step 3) Click "add" in the pop-up.  The pop-up will go away and your blog looks like this:



That's it!  A whole lot of HTML code is added (<p ... p>), the photo will appear there.
(For Forums, you will not see the code, it will look like the finished posting)

And you are done!  

This is the finished posting:

(I added a link from "blue painter's tape" to a Web site that talks more about it.)

Here is a link to the finished blog, (click on the underlined text to get there).  Let me know what you think!

Ray, the names that show up in the chat room represent anyone who is logged on and using any portion of the Kreg community. More often than not, they are not currently viewing the chat page, but are just browsing some other portion of the site. Consequently, when you type something in the chat window, no one may be there to respond.

We've debated back and forth whether or not the chat feature should be turned on during the week, since it might lead to more confusion than answers... but many of the members like this feature so I've left it up. We do use it on an off/on basis for doing chats with Kreg employees... FYI.

Thanks for the question!
The KREG JIG has made all my woodworking projects easier, stronger, faster, & more enjoyable. But I like my new KREG DECK JIG just as much. I have had several comments on my new deck floor. It looks so much better without the screw heads & split wood showing. THANKS KREG FOR MAKING MY WOODWORKING HOBBY MORE ENJOYABLE.

Hi,

I appreciate the advice, I just joined the site. I would like to get some ideas on building a frame for a workbench. I picked up a great maple bench top at a yard sale. How would I go about asking if anyone has ideas? Thanks…Dave

Thanks Jenny, you learn something new everyday of your life I say. I will learn how do use the Kreg and to blog.

Thanks, I just signed up and this is good info.  I mostly do scroll saw work and have never been able to figure out how to send a picture there. I just did my first Kreg project, a replacement drawere for my son's kitchen and it turned out perfect.
