New To Kitchens? Posting Pics? Read Me! [Help keep on Page 1]

buehlFebruary 20, 2012

Welcome! If you are new to the Kitchens Forum, you may find the following information and links helpful.

The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)/Articles pages contain helpful information about how to navigate this site as well as the world of kitchen renovations.

The Kitchen Forum Acronyms will help you understand some of the acronyms used frequently in posts.

The Finished Kitchens Blog has pictures and information about many GW members' finished kitchens. Not only can you see them alphabetically, but there is also a category list if you're looking for specific things like a kitchen w/a Beverage Center or a kitchen w/a mix of dark and light cabinets. Access the FKB Categories Page via a link in the navigation panel on the right of any FKB page. Additionally, there is a link to "In-Progress Kitchens" for those members' kitchens that are not quite ready for the FKB. There is also a link to kitchens that are ready for the FKB but have not yet been added. To access the "In-Progress Kitchens", the "Coming Soon Kitchens", and the "FKB Categories", see the links in the navigation panel that is on the right side of each main FKB page.

The Appliances Forum is very useful when you have questions specific to appliances.

To start off the kitchen remodel process...take the Sweeby Test. Then, move on to Beginning a Kitchen Plan.

Other topics such as layouts, planning for storage, and stone materials are discussed in later topics in this thread. Even more information can be found by doing a search on the forum.

Tips:

  • Before posting a question, please search the forum. There's a very good chance someone has already asked the question.

  • When using the "search" function, be sure to use the search box on the bottom of the page, not the top!

  • Note, however, that you will probably have better luck searching if you use Google (or similar search engine) than if you use the Forum search function. When using Google, to limit your results to Garden Web, include the following in your search criteria:

***site:ths.gardenweb.com

In the Subject, the site changes the double quote used as the inches indicator (") to a single quote ('). We don't know why. To compensate, use two single quotes and it will appear as a double quote in the Subject. Luckily, the double quote works in the message box.

When composing a new thread, you have a couple of options:

  • Have replies emailed to you: check the box offering this option. However, you must have "Allow other users to send you email via forms at our site." box checked in your profile for this to work (see the "Your Profile" link at the very top of the page) [See the post later in this thread with the Subject: Getting Emails Sent To You...3-step Process]

  • Insert a link: When you "preview" your message, you will be provided with two boxes for a link...one is for the link itself and the second is for the name or description of the link.

When using the "Clip this post" option (far upper right corner of each...

Unfortunately, the FAQ is not yet ready. I have encountered technical difficulties that iVillage is looking in to.

Is there a way to keep this as a "sticky note" on top of the forum?

I am a member of another "Center" (that is probably just as popular as the GW) and on each board, they have "sticky notes" that always stay on the top, so nobody but the board or the Center "owners" can move or edit them.

Hello. My name is Mojavean and I hang out in the appliance forum. Good day, everyone!

I just want to make sure that you all know that the top number of posts for any thread in the forums is 150. This thread is now at 127 (128 after this one) and soon you will not be able to bump it to the front page any longer. If someone owns a blog who is willing or wants to keep the information readily available, it might be best, with the delightful author's permission, of course, to host this document on another site and simply refer FAQ inquiries to that off-site address.

This, of course, is barring the hope that Gardenweb would put a link to the document somewhere else on the page in a more permanent manner.

Thank you Mojavean. We are well-aware of the limitations as we have been doing this since 2008 and have many very knowledgeable people here.

At this time, we are working with Tamara at iVillage to set up a FAQ page. Right now, we are awaiting feedback from iVillage's technical team concerning some issues we've encountered while setting up the FAQs.
