New BBCodes

Postby rockgeek » Sun Dec 05, 2010 12:12 pm

Hello,

so when you come to add or edit a post, you now have more formatting options than before

Spoiler Text
If you want to add some spoiler text i.e. the ending of a film. The The icon in the editing toolbar is called Spoil=. Alternatively you can handtype

Code: Select all

[Spoil=Title you want to give]The spoiler goes here[/Spoil]
Here's the result:
Harry | Show
Harry Potter dies


Strike Through
Strikes through text. The icon in the editing toolbar is called ST. Alternatively you can handtype

Code: Select all

[ST]Text goes here[/ST]
Here's the result: Testing 1,2,3

YouTube
This is just being tested out - any abuse and it will be taken off. The icon in the editing toolbar is called YT. Alternatively you can handtype

Code: Select all

[YT]123456[/YT]
The number represents the ID of the video so for something like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ssIwTCmdqo, the ID will be 6ssIwTCmdqo

Here's the result:


Horizontal Rule
Simple adds a horizontal rule across the page. Can be used to split up long posts or just to annoy people. The icon in the editing toolbar is called HR. Alternatively you can handtype

Code: Select all

[HR][/HR]


Here's the result:

Thanks for introducing the Spoiler Tags! Can you please make sure that people use it every time they're discussing a major setlist/stage set-up please?


Embedding Youtube videos is a terrible idea. It'll turn every thread into a Myspace page. By the time the page has loaded up I'll have forgotten what I was going to say.
