NEW BBCODES ADDED

Post by JohnM » Fri Jul 26, 2013 5:35 am

BBCode stands for Bulletin Board Code and is a standard convention used on Bulletin Boards throughout the web.

I have looked through a list of them and added some that I think would be useful for us here.

When you are posting, you will see the BBCode choices across the top of the text entry box.

If you hover over the BBCode it will give you some help on how to correctly format the BBCode.

Besides the ones I added there were some already installed that are useful as well. I used the Code BBCode to show an example of how each of the new BBCodes are formatted.

BBCodes. Try them you'll like them.

cur BBCode for adding special characters

Post by JohnM » Fri Jul 26, 2013 5:52 am

Here is a test of the cur BBCode. It was originally called char for character but I thought cur for currency made more sense for us here. I made the edit and cur works.

This is the symbol for yen ¥
This is the symbol for euro €
This is the symbol for GBP £
This is the symbol for cent ¢

That works really well and will be useful for what we write about.

Code: Select all

This is the symbol for yen [cur]yen[/cur]
This is the symbol for euro [cur]euro[/cur]
This is the symbol for GBP [cur]pound[/cur]
This is the symbol for cent [cur]cent[/cur]

spoiler BBCode

Post by JohnM » Fri Jul 26, 2013 6:04 am

Here is a test of the spoiler= BBCode
[+] Dont Look Here
fig.newton will have a booth at Magic Live
This one is a bit finicky. It did not like the apostrophe in Don't. Also, it did not like that I tried to put "spoiler alert" as the title either.

Even so it is still pretty cool.

Code: Select all

[spoiler="Dont Look Here"]fig.newton will have a booth at Magic Live[/spoiler]

This works well.

The magic tricks that Tenyo has invented and introduced over the years have been truly innovative. Tenyo is know for creating interesting/compelling props that often contain a brilliant mechanical gimmick.

Here I changed the font to Courier. Pretty simple.
