Guidelines For Referencing Articles From Another Site

If you reference an article from another site, please do not post the entire article within your post. Simply quote a small segment of it, along with a link to the source.

Use our quote function to help make it clear that the words are not yours.

Example: A quoted section would look like the following.

"Outdoor lighting improves the aesthetics of your exterior landscaping, but it also serves a practical purpose in improving visibility and security. Lighting up the night around your home is a fairly easy weekend DIY project, as long as you know your limitations and form a solid plan before starting." 5 Secrets to Success with Outdoor Lighting
We should NOT share pictures from another site without permission to do so.

Please do not just post a link or article without adding your own thoughts regarding the information you are sharing.

This is just an FAQ tutorial thread. If you have additional questions or need help with this topic, please start a new thread in our Site Help section of the community.
