How To: Using Forum Tags

Postby Feydakin » Thu Jun 30, 2016 5:04 pm

Find yourself confused by the new forum posting features? This is just a quick and dirty guide of how to use the new forum tags.

This is just the new ones that I added that are appearing after the font size drop down menu.

Font Colour · Simply changes the color of your text in your post. You just click the font colour button and a grid of many colors shows up, pick your color and it makes any text inside the tags that color.
This:

Code: Select all

[color=#00FF00]TEST[/color]

Makes this;
TEST

Center · The center tag simply centers the text that you place in between the tags.
This;

Code: Select all

[center]TEST[/center]

Makes this;
TEST

Char · The char tag enables you to put some special characters in your posts via their HTML names.
Like this;

Code: Select all

[char]cent[/char]

Makes this;
¢
Here is a list of characters that will work with this tag:

Imageleft · This tag allows you to place a left justified image and wrap your text around the right side of the image.
This:

Code: Select all

[imageleft]http://i.imgur.com/bsWwp5t.jpg[/imageleft] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nunc ornare, mauris eu tincidunt consectetur, diam purus pulvinar odio, at venenatis nibh nunc quis purus. Donec gravida varius quam sollicitudin porta. Ut bibendum dapibus felis, interdum finibus justo congue vitae. Nulla pellentesque augue ante, sodales consectetur risus sodales et. Quisque eu odio velit. Cras pulvinar congue ex ac sodales. Sed id accumsan velit. Praesent ex arcu, finibus a arcu sed, venenatis porttitor lorem. Duis porttitor lacus risus, quis mattis turpis hendrerit ut. Morbi sit amet quam lobortis, porta lectus eu, cursus urna. Mauris sit amet dapibus urna. Quisque luctus nisi quis commodo interdum.

Interdum et malesuada fames ac ante ipsum primis in faucibus. Integer hendrerit elit lorem, sit amet tristique est elementum eu. Aenean quis scelerisque ligula. Donec elementum ipsum id commodo cursus. Maecenas a lacinia enim. Duis euismod, felis et iaculis vehicula, urna quam sollicitudin turpis, nec euismod lacus sapien at lorem. In aliquam magna diam, eget tristique arcu tincidunt id. Sed eget dignissim metus, vitae mollis arcu. Duis eu orci commodo, lacinia lacus ut, tempus arcu. Nam nunc ligula, ultricies id interdum eu, laoreet et massa. Praesent dictum leo eu eros efficitur ullamcorper. Curabitur ac arcu placerat, sagittis augue vel, ultricies sem.

Integer in condimentum ipsum. Aliquam sed gravida ipsum. Cras quis efficitur ligula. Suspendisse at urna ligula. Maecenas ut dolor sollicitudin orci luctus efficitur. Vivamus sit amet lacinia mauris. Nam tempus nunc nisl, vitae sollicitudin elit dapibus at.

Makes this:

Right · The right tag right justifies the text that you place in between the tags.
This;

Code: Select all

[right] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nunc ornare, mauris eu tincidunt consectetur, diam purus pulvinar odio, at venenatis nibh nunc quis purus. Donec gravida varius quam sollicitudin porta. Ut bibendum dapibus felis, interdum finibus justo congue vitae. Nulla pellentesque augue ante, sodales consectetur risus sodales et. Quisque eu odio velit. Cras pulvinar congue ex ac sodales. Sed id accumsan velit. Praesent ex arcu, finibus a arcu sed, venenatis porttitor lorem. Duis porttitor lacus risus, quis mattis turpis hendrerit ut. Morbi sit amet quam lobortis, porta lectus eu, cursus urna. Mauris sit amet dapibus urna. Quisque luctus nisi quis commodo interdum.

Spoiler · The spoiler tag makes it so that any text that you place in between the tags is hidden until someone pushed the "show" button.
This;

Code: Select all

[spoiler]TEST[/spoiler]

Makes this;
Spoiler: show
TEST



Youtube · Allows you to place a full Youtube video URL in between the tags to embed it into your post. This tag ONLY works with FULL Youtube URLs, no mobile URLs, no short URLs!
This;

Code: Select all

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U3ucaVzRqQ[/youtube]

Makes this;


If anyone has any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask! ;)

Nope and you also can't put title text in the spoiler button with this one either. I'm hoping that the one with the Advanced BBCode Box extension (which hopefully we'll be installing) has more functionality. If not then I'm considering relearning how to do this stuff and making one on my own... No promises but I'm trying to find a solution. for now though it works well enough. ;)
