    Now it does recognize my nntp setup. Two things.
    Either I had made mistake in entering email id or I was following up in
    html mode.
    Q. Will following up in html cause problems.
    Q. If I'm sending in text only mode, how will I attach
    image/code/link/quote?
    Hi
    Ok, you have to manually enter (In claws mail I have a template the automatically adds the quoting) quotes, code tags and URL BB wrappers.

    Do not follow up using HTML. It's considered bad form in general for
    NNTP, and many readers do not render it.

    > Q. If I'm sending in text only mode, how will I attach image/code/link/

    quote?

    Put the image on susepaste and link to it. Attachments do not traverse
    the gateway IIRC, so attaching would not be a good idea.

    You mean posting in html? Don't.
    It works in the sense that posts get through, but the people using web
    can not see anything but the plain text equivalent. So it is pointless.

    Only people using a capable nntp reader would see the extras.

    Thus stick to plain text.

    You have to learn the tricks. For quotes, just let thunderbird do it.
    like in this post. It does look a bit strange on the web side to them,
    but they understand.

    Code is done this way - sorry chaps, you only see this right via nntp :-p

    Code:
    This is a code section
    http://This_is_a_web_link




    There is a link somewhere with many more. Let me see if I have it...

    In that case, you should consider using leafnode.

    It gives you a local (slave) nntp server. You point Thunderbird to it,
    so that all reading and posting is done entirely locally, not on
    internet. When you finish writing, you connect to internet and call
    "fetchnews" to send pending post, and fetch whatever is new.

    It works very nicely, so much so that I use it even when having
    unlimited internet: changing from message to message is instantaneous.
    Also, you can tell Thunderbird not to cache messages.

    It was designed about two decades ago, when people used modems.

    Caveat: it is best to use reiserfs for its data, although will work on any.


    Otherwise, if do not want to set it up, use thunderbird in offline mode.
    You tell it to cache the posts, and disconnect. I don't remember ho well
    it works with nntp, but I was not happy with it (so I switched to leafnode).

    Found a
    Thunderbird
    Add-On: Custom-Buttons

    It's so versatile/customizable (difficult) that it's better to type
    bbcode tags than using it.
    Basically it just provides a framework. You are required to a select
    icon and provide additional code explaining how the icon should behave.

    Composing a post is very easy.
    Is it possible to write an addon for thunderbird such that
    thunderbird renders the posts the same way as vbulletin does?

    I was not aware of it.

    I'm not aware of one.

    If the gateway could be improved, meaning, that Jim or somebody else had
    more time or a volunteer helper with the proper skills to do it, then
    there could be better translation of codes in both directions. That
    would be the best thing.

    But somethings, like your bold text above is difficult to pass. The
    plain text method is using asterisks like *bold*. Thunderbird
    understands it, and I hope other mailers do. The web side doesn't, but I
    suppose that people make up for that and /imagine/ the italics or bold
    or_underline_.

    Another problem is the smileys: some people simply do not understand
    plain text, classic smileys, which are the only ones usable on the nntp
    side.

    Rendering most of the features of the web side forum require html on
    nntp. This has several complications. One, as Jim said, is that it is
    frown upon (with possible security issues), and that not all nntp
    readers support it (thunderbird does). Another is that implementing
    support on the gateway would probably be a nightmare.

    So no, I don't see it happening.
    Maybe, if nntp users were not half a dozen, but a hundred or a thousand,
    and on several forums, there would be some chance ;-)


    nntp can be attractive to the people used to the mail lists at openSUSE.
    Many of them do not like web forums at all, and say so... Thus when I
    suggest there to come here, I try to suggest to use nntp, as a unique
    feature of our forums.

    You can add a filter in thunderbird to highlight the threads on which
    you participate. First, copy to the clipboard your own address. Then,
    select the parent of all groups, ie, the account. Go to tools, filters,
    and add a new one, that triggers on from contains your address. As
    actions, select "watch thread" and "mark as read".

    This makes that all threads in which you post are automatically marked
    "watch", which make them easy to find. Your own post is marked read, so
    that the thread only appears underlined when there is a new post on the
    thread, different from your own.

    Of course, this means that you have to sort by date, and have thread
    view active.


    Other nntp readers have other methods, like for instance, scoring.
