I'm not going to be able to connect to the site for a few days. What will happen to my horses and my equestrian center?

Do not worry for your horses. They will not get older if you do not log in. However, time will still pass for your equestrian center, so you have some things to keep track of:

  • Make sure that your bedding stocks are sufficient (the bedding of a box is renewed once a week),
  • Regarding your crops, you have 20 days to harvest them.

How can I avoid account thefts?

Howrse players commonly have to deal with stolen accounts. But you can avoid this by following these tips:

  • ALWAYS log off before leaving Howrse,
  • NEVER save your password in your browser,
  • don't leave the computer you're using to play Howrse unattended,
  • don't share your password with anyone
  • delete the e-mail you received when you joined, because if someone hacks your e-mail address, he or she will have access to your Howrse login and password,

How can I put an image on my page or in the forum?

To insert an image from your computer, you have to upload it to a site like imageshack. Then all you have to do is to put the web address on the forum from your profile page.

On forums, the tags you must use for each link are [img] and [/img]. They must be pasted to the link without spacing.

On your profile, you have to use the exact link to the site where you uploaded your image by using the "image" button on your profile page.

How can I make a hypertext link?

A hypertext link lets you put just a word or sentence people can click to visit another site, such as one about your horses.

The tagging system is the same for forums as for images. The only difference is that the tag is [url] or [/url] .

To hide the address and put only the word or sentence you want, do the following: [url=address you want to redirect to]word you want to appear and then, without spaces, close the tag [/url]

On your presentation page, use the "link" button and enter the address you want to redirect to. To insert a hypertext link, write the text you want to appear, select it, click the link button, and then enter the address in the box that appears.
