Tips and Tricks!
#1
Here's some tips for you beginners out there.

We are running myBB which is the most popular free forum software out there.

To enhance your posts, try using MyCode!

You can use MyCode, a simplified version of HTML, in your posts to create certain effects.


Code:
[b]This text is bold[/b]

This text is bold


Code:
[i]This text is italicized[/i]

This text is italicized


Code:
[u]This text is underlined[/u]

This text is underlined


Code:
[s]This text is striked out[/s]

This text is striked out


Code:
[url]link goes here[/url]

http://link goes here


Code:
[url=http://www.example.com/]Example.com[/url]

Example.com


Code:
[email]example@example.com[/email]

example@example.com


Code:
[email=example@example.com]E-mail Me![/email]

E-mail Me!


Code:
[email=example@example.com?subject=spam]E-mail with subject[/email]

E-mail with subject


Code:
[quote]Quoted text will be here[/quote]

Quote:Quoted text will be here



[code*]Text with preserved formatting[*/code]


Code:
Text with preserved formatting


Image Tags:

Code:
[img]http://www.php.net/images/php.gif[/img]

[Image: php.gif]

Due to our small hosting space, please try and use the image tag to post images!



Code:
[color=red]This text is red[/color]

This text is red


Code:
[size=3]This text is size 3[/size]

This text is size 3


Code:
[font=Tahoma]This font is Tahoma[/font]

This font is Tahoma


Code:
[align=center]This is centered[/align]

This is centered


Code:
[align=right]This is right-aligned[/align]

This is right-aligned


Code:
[list]
[*]List Item #1
[*]List Item #2
[*]List Item #3
[/list]
  • List Item #1
  • List Item #2
  • List Item #3

You can make an ordered list by using:
Code:
[list=1]

for a numbered, and:

Code:
[list=a]
for an alphabetical list.




You can also do spoilers:

Code:
[spoiler]my dog is dead[/spoiler]

Show ContentSpoiler:



You can also embed Twitch live streams:

Code:
[twitch]*channel name goes here*[/twitch]

The video will then display.



Progress Bars:

Code:
[Progress=*pick a percentage between 1-100*]*name the bar here*[/progress]

Test progress
   50%




Tables:

Tables are split into 4 sections:

the table
Code:
[table=*specify table size here as a number 1 is small, 10 is big for example*][/table]

the table header
Code:
[th]*name the header here*[/table]

the table Row
Code:
[tr][/tr]

the table data
Code:
[td]*content of table goes here*[/td]



So:
Code:
[table=18] <-- table start and size
[th]First table header[/th]
[th]Second table header[/th]
[tr] <-- first table row
[td]First row containing data[/td]
[td]First row containing data again[/td]
[/tr] <-- close first table row
[tr] <-- second table row
[td]second row containing data[/td]
[td]second row containing data again[/td]
[/tr] <-- close second table row
[/table] <-- close table


Example:

First table header
Second table header
First row containing data First row containing data again
second row containing data second row containing data again

Tables will automatically center. Remember to close all tags with brackets and /




SoundCould!

Code:
[souldcloud]*url to song goes here*[/soundcloud]

E.G. Tenacious D link:
https://soundcloud.com/tenaciousd/rock-is-dead








WebM support!

Code:
[webm]*webm url here*[/webm]


Result:




Float images left and right of text:

Code:
[float-l]*image goes here*[/float-l]

[Image: icon_31_on.png]


Code:
[float-r]*image goes here*[/float-r]

[Image: icon_31_on.png]

Give it ago folks!

Is there a way to expand the list of most recent posts?

Do you mean for the latest posts at the top of the forum? If so then unfortunately not. It only displays as many posts as I tell it too, which currently is 6.

However when you first sign in over at the Portal you have the option to view new posts and today's new posts.

Hope that helps!

We could look into expanding it to 10 posts once the forum gets busier?

Yeah but then it will start taking up more space. I will have to edit the CSS to make to make it smaller and compact.

Yup, won't be needed for a while anyway. Just if the forum starts to pick up a lot more traffic.

Oh, I was more wondering if there was seperate page to view it from, not making it bigger on the home page which would take up too much space
