OK so after about what seems like 2-3 hours of typing and rasterizing, I am finally done with the BB Code Guide v3.0 and this may be possibly the final version of it so I hope you guys like it.

Thanks Zoph for stickying.

It gives a clear indication of a pretty important part of the forum software, and knowing the software can lead to less "accidents" or spam.

That should work as a clickable link when pasted... Why didn't it?


I'm assuming your referring to that particular link, but I am still not sure what you mean. The reason that URL is not working is because it is faulty and has HTML at the end with the word that, but I think thats a part of one of AG's glitches where it screws up a link. Anyways thanks for stickying this, and all of my guides are in my about. I don't know if I will do so or not, but I am considering the creation of a 3.1 to fix some minor errors. That version would probably be posted on this thread anyways though since its an edited version of an already existing version. I agree that having people post in all bold/italics is bad, and I think that is why we no longer have underline, because people did that.

Hey, really great guide, though all I wanted is how the url and image combine, I didn't know you can combine bold and italics, thanks...

Anyway, I think that you should mention the fact that there are some buttons which would make BBcode easier for you to type, its at the top of the text box (the one that says bold, italic etc...)

Also, with the exception of image, you must press each button twice, one for opening the Code and one for closing it. Another exception is when you highlight something in the text box and then click on any button.

hmm...I suppose in the next guide I will probably do so. I have to fix a few minor errors anyways. I might post a 3.1 when I get around to it, and since I do find myself using the buttons sometimes for saving time I could give an extra guide to show how to use them quickly...except the image and link buttons which I despise. Also its better to learn the codes so you can combine them, and use them on forums that don't have the buttons, so I don't really want people to become reliant on the buttons. Also with the amount of glitches that go on with AG, you never know when one that keeps people from using the buttons could pop up, but still I will be sure when I get around to it to add that to the guide if I can.

That was a good idea to put it in a picture, because then the bbcodes don't actually take action.

I'm just testing this for fun, cuz I never knew about this bbcode until this guide. As a longtime member I figured out the rest.

[quote=crimsonblade555]*sigh* OK I just had a look at it and I saved the image with the wrong image size set so here is the real image(hopefully)[/quote]

um yeah duh :P

You can also combine a quote with another quote (so like when you want to quote someone who quoted another post)

Ok below, "person 2" will quote "person 1", write what ever after, post it and person 3 is quoting person 2, just to make it easier to understand.

[QUOTE][QUOTE]<first quote here (ie, what person 1 has written)[/QUOTE]<here is what person 2 has written>[/QUOTE]

example:

[quote]hello I am person 1
Hi person 1, I am person 2[/quote]

If this does not work, I'll try again.

well....yes, though that is not combining two different BB codes, but it is possible, and has been used before by some. I will be sure to note that.

Are you sure that the [quote=name*] one works? I've never seen that being used here.

Mind if i try it out?

you could use imageshack, I believe that site does not make you create an account to post your images, although since your internet is slow, I guess that will take long as well.
