Creating a post on Nordinho

Nordinho is kind of an old school forum so things are not super easy to do sometimes. 

You'll need:

  • a screenshot of the game saved on your computer
  • the URL of the game (copied from your browser)
This should really be done from a desktop computer. It's possible to do it from mobile, but it's definitely harder because of the screen size.

Up near the top of the games list, click the NEW THREAD button.

You'll get the next screen. Write some stuff in the title block (usually the name of the game and the author), and a description of the game. 

You can simply paste the URL of the game directly after the game description. But if you want to make it look tidier, such as a single word "Play" as a button, you can use the link button indicated in the image below. Type the word "Play" (or whatever text you want to use as the button), highlight it, then click the link button.

A window will pop up, which is prefilled with "http://". Since we're in the 21st century and we do things securely now (or at least hopefully), erase that and paste the game URL.

Clicking OK will close that popup. You will see some messy looking text with square brackets and quotes have been added around your URL. Don't delete this stuff, the Nordinho website needs it to create that nice looking link. 

Now you need to add your screenshot. Scroll down until you see "Addtional Options". Click MANAGE ATTACHMENTS.

Another window will pop up. Click the CHOOSE FILE button which will open your file manager and select your screenshot from your computer. Then click UPLOAD. It may take a few seconds but your file name should show up in the area above where it says "Attachment key". Click CLOSE THIS WINDOW or the red X box in the top right. 

Just a note: there are file size limits to what you can upload. If your screenshot is too large you will see an error message show up below the words "Manage Attachments." If that happens you need to find a way to make your screenshot file size smaller before you can use it.

That's everything you need to enter! Scroll down and click the SUBMIT NEW THREAD button and you should see it in the forum right away.
