FAQs – The Nest Message Boards

How do I find all of my posts?
While on any board, scroll down to "My Boards" on the left-hand side. Underneath it you will see "My Posts."

How do I put a picture in my signature?
- Upload your picture to a hosting site such as Photobucket.com or Shutterfly.com.
- Find the direct link to your photo by right-clicking on the picture and finding the URL under properties (it will end in .jpg or another file ending for a picture). If the URL is long, you may need to shorten it using a site like tinyurl.com.
