What are these new posting buttons for?

Postby ImpBarn » Wed Apr 29, 2009 6:22 am

Hello all you wonderful people in Sunbeamland.

If you haven't noticed yet, there are some fun new buttons available on the posting window. These are BBcode buttons. We can't let everyone go around posting uncontrolled HTML, but I've selected a few neat features to allow us to do some fun things.

The best way to post pictures is host them somewhere on a site like Photobucket / Picasa / etc. Then use the BB codes to point to your picture. Like this:

Photo Bucket

Code: Select all

Picasa Web Google Photo
Find your photo Right Click on it to Open in New Tab
Paste the link with the IMG BB code

Code: Select all

You can CENTER your Text

Code: Select all

[center]You can CENTER your Text[/center]


If you really want to be nerdy and technical, you can put subscripts in for chemical formulas like
H2O

Code: Select all

 H[sub]2[/sub]O


Or if you need to express a polynomial for some reason you could use the super-script. x3-2x2+3x-1

Code: Select all

x[super]3[/super]-2x[super]2[/super]+3x-1


You can also place horizontal rules on your post to seperate things.


Code: Select all

[hr]1[/hr]


But more fun than that you can embed youtube videos... just supply the video number between the BBcodes

Code: Select all

[youtube]2mCqq9U19Xs[/youtube]


There is one for google videos too.

You can also make lists
Things I like about my Rootes automobile
  1. Stylish
  2. Classic
  3. Fast

Code: Select all

 [list=1]
[*]Stylish
[*]Classic
[*]Fast
[/list]


Have fun and make our forum more exciting ! :)


Yours in Service,
Eric S.
