  • A Brief User Guide

    Tips for getting most out of the community

    1. Posting: The forum supports Markdown format. If you do not know what that is, you can just post in plain text. If you would like to use Markdown, here is a cheat sheet for it.

    2. Pictures: You can drag and prop pictures to include in your posts.

    3. Video: You can use links to YouTube or Vimeo videos and the forum will show them as embedded video ready to play right from inside the post. You cannot upload a video file in a post, you have to use YouTube or Vimeo links.

    4. Categories: We have defined a few categories that we think community would want. These categories are basically big buckets, each for one significant aspect of the home food business and the people involved with it.

    5. Missing category: If you think that there is a missing category that absolutely must exist, please post a request in "Technical Support for this Site" topic.

    6. Tags: To allow for finer grain structure of community interactions, we have defined a whole bunch of tags. There are tags for CA counties - one each actually. This allows, for example, a post in "MEHKO Permit Process" category with two tags "Alameda-County-CA" to narrow the scope of the post to "MEHKO permit process in Alameda county in California".
