Small tutorial on forum functions

#1 Post by ohaha » 14 Oct 2013 17:11

IMG tag

Code: Select all

[img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7438/10215137465_79e3f33e78_c.jpg[/IMG]
Images less than or equal to 960px, in width, will be displayed on the forum. For bigger images, try searching for a function, on the hosting site, that will give you the link to a smaller size - thumbnail - format and use the IMG tag in conjunction with the URL tag. Put the full size image link in the URL tag. Check URL tag section for more info. Don't forget the http://.

URL tag

Code: Select all

[url=http://blog.scssoft.com]SCS Software Blog[/url]
SCS Software Blog

To post a thumbnail that links to the full size image use:

Code: Select all

[url=http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7438/10215137465_3c17544e75_o.png][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7438/10215137465_79e3f33e78_c.jpg[/img][/url]

The first link, in the URL tag is the full size photo. The second link, in the IMG tag, is the 800x600 resized version.

Youtube tag

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaaaaaaaa[/youtube]
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaaaaaaaa[/youtube]

The yellow part is always the same. Just write down (or paste) the video id (green part).

Quote tag

Code: Select all

[quote="user name"]
Some text
[/quote]
user name wrote: some text
Use this wisely. If you want to answer a specific part of someone else's post, use the Quote tag and remove the unnecessary text. This helps the Search function get fewer hits on a specific phrase and improves readability of the forum, by lowering the number of pages on each topic.
If you want to reply to the whole post, just say @user name and they'll get the message. If it's really important use the PM function.

Code tag

Code: Select all

[code]
some text
[/code]

Use this when posting bug reports, especially, and whenever you need to display a section of special text (e.g. contents of a sii file)

List tag - simple list

Code: Select all

[list]
First item
Second item
...
[/list]
  • First item
    Second item
    ...
List tag - bulleted list

Code: Select all

[list]
[*]First item
[*]Second item
[*]...
[/list]
  • First item
  • Second item
  • ...
List tag - ordered list - numbers

Code: Select all

[list=1]
[*]First item
[*]Second item
[*]...
[/list]
  1. First item
  2. Second item
  3. ...
List tag - ordered list - letters

Code: Select all

[list=a]
[*]First item
[*]Second item
[*]...
[/list]
  1. First item
  2. Second item
  3. ...
Also, Nested lists (suggested by Cadde. Thank you.):

Code: Select all

[list]
Header1
[list]
[*]SubHeader1
[list=1]
[*]Item1
[list=a]
[*]SubItem1
[*]SubItem2
[*]SubItem3[/list]
[*]Item2
[*]Item3[/list]
[*]SubHeader2
[*]SubHeader3[/list]
Header2
Header3[/list]
  • Header1
    • SubHeader1
      1. Item1
        1. SubItem1
        2. SubItem2
        3. SubItem3
      2. Item2
      3. Item3
    • SubHeader2
    • SubHeader3
    Header2
    Header3
And...

Code: Select all

[list]
[*]Another type
[list]
[*]Of nested
[list]
[*]List[/list][/list][/list]
  • Another type
    • Of nested
      • List
Attachment function
This allows you to attach relevant content to your reply. There is a special section, called Upload attachment, that allows you to attach files to your post.
You can place them in-line using the respective button. If you ave more than one, use the combo box to chose the correct one.
This function also supports archives, text files, but not scs files. For those, you must first pack them into an archive.
Please, do not abuse this function, because this stores the data on this server, adding to the load.
It is recommended to use a free hosting service for your images and post them via the IMG tag. This will also allow you to link to a full size screen shot, unlike the attachment feature.
Use the attachment for small files (few KBs) if uploading them to a share site would be unnecessary.

Report abuse message
Image
In every message there is a button that allows you to report to us the forum staff to intervene in topics / posts that you feel not appropriate. Selecting and writing your reason for reporting, there will come a notification so that we can take action as soon as possible on the issue. There is no guarantee an answer, but we can confirm that we check them all.

Thank you all and enjoy!
