Making a Post

To create a post in Commercial Door Talk, simply click on the orange button in the upper left column of dashboard. Not only can you post text, you can also attach links, pictures, videos and files. At the top of the box that comes up, you will see share something with. The default is your followers. By choosing Group and selecting the Group your post is associated with, it will appear on that Group page AND also on the main page in the (default) Everybody tab (with a line at the top of the post showing what Group it is also posted in). This is a great way to organize and categorize posts by topic. The last choice is to choose to post it as a private message to a specific user. When you select a user, all you have to do is start typing the name of the person or their user alias and you will get pre search results. In the upper right corner you will see how much text you have left to type and to publish your post simply click the Post button on the bottom right

Reference to Users

You can mention any specific person by adding an @ symbol before their name - for example, @username. Thus, the users name becomes a link to their account. This will also send an e-mail notification to the user that you mention that user in your post. Also this post will appear in the section @Me in their dashboard.

Private Messages

You can send a private message to a user in two ways - either by their profile, select the top right button Send a Private Message or when creating a new post as mentioned above, select user (private message) from the menu and enter their user name. This message will be sent only to the user, it will not be seen by any other users in the network. The user will receive it in their dashboard in the section Private Messages, and they will receive an e-mail notification.

Tagging posts

Tagging messages are used for marking keywords that are mentioned in order to be easily tracked and indexed. Tags are made merely by placing the symbol # (hash) before each keyword. Thus, the keyword is a link that leads to all other posts that contains the same word.

Resharing a post

Resharing is to repeat/quote a post from someone else. Say you come across an interesting post and you want to republish it so the people who follow you can see it too, then you reshare it. In order to reshare the post you want, just open the top post menu and click the Reshare button. You can also reshare a post if you click the Share link at the bottom of the post body. · Contacts | Main Page | Doors | Frames | Hardware | Downloads | Commercial Door Talk! | About Us | Contact Us
