Custom BBCodes

Here are some custom BBCodes you may use in your posts to make life a little easier. If you can think of any else you might find useful, post them in here and I'll see what I can do.

Spoiler

What it does: Hides a movie spoiler until the user clicks a button. Put the title of the movie (or book, or game, or whatever) in the quotation marks as below, and then the contents of the spoiler inside the tags.

How to use it:
Code:
[spoiler="Clue"]The butler did it.[/spoiler]


What it looks like:
Spoiler for Clue
The butler did it.


-OR-

If you don't have a title:

How to use it:
Code:
[spoiler]The butler did it.[/spoiler]


What it looks like:
Spoiler
The butler did it.


---

Strikethrough

What it does: Strikes through a block of text.

How to use it:
Code:
Nunis [s]sucks[/s] rocks


What it looks like:
Nunis sucks rocks

---

YouTube

What it does: Embeds a YouTube video. You need to provide a full YouTube URL. Please preview any posts you make using this so you know if it works before posting.

How to use it:
Code:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx1XIm6q4r4[/youtube]


What it looks like:


---

Resize an image

What it does: Shrinks an image to a width (in pixels) you set and makes the image clickable so you can view it original-sized. You need to provide a number (not too large, or I'll delete your post) and then the url.

How to use it:
Code:
[imgurl=300]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v395/Alotta/seriously.jpg[/imgurl]


What it looks like:


---

Abbreviations and acronyms

What it does: Defines a term, explains an abbreviation, or simply displays a tooltip. Mouse over to see the explanation.

How to use it:
Code:
[abbr="Good luck, we're all counting on you"]glwacoy[/abbr]


What it looks like:
glwacoy

isn't the point of all the abbreviations that we're lazy so doesn't this defeat the purpose. However if i would have had this a year and a half ago I may not have thought you all were crazy.

This new BBCode is the genesis of an age with terser posts, where readers can get more detail only when they want to, and only on parts where they want more detail. It's as FW as Apple pie.

It works fine on Firefox (you can see the dotted line) but not on Safari...
What did I miss ?

First of all, please don't abuse the abbr tag. If it gets silly, I'll remove it.

Toto, it's a browser interpretation thing. As soon as I get five minutes to spare, I will change up the styling so it looks the same across all major browsers.

The "Things you ought to know" thread should be moved out of the Movie Madness, don't you think ? Or deleted if all of its crucial infos are put elsewhere.

I'm currently in the process of moving threads around, and I'll gladly take help if offered. Posts like this are very useful, so thanks.

Mainly I'm going through Stuffages and moving invisible threads to Invisibles. And I'm going through Open Ended and moving stuff to the relevant forums. I've so far done all threads that have been posted in during 2008, and that seems like a good start. However, if you come across something, let me know.

For now, I will take your suggestion and move the thread you mentioned.

Hanna, when you're done with the essential, you could maybe take a look at the mini logo on the left of the url.
Might be cool to have the question mark up there ?


I'm looking for more useless stuff to do and I'll be right back.

You might have to refresh your browser or clear your cache to see it, but the forums now have a favicon.
