Using BBCode in IRG -- and Elsewhere, too!

(No, in this post, I won't be using my normal colored font. I have a lot of code to cover here, so it'd only get in the way. Also, this post is pretty long, but if you're new it's definitely worth it. Onward, all!)

Check out the list of BBCode-friendly colors here! emot-keke
And check out how polls on IRG work here! emot-keke

The system that IRG uses to format posts -- aside from our wonderful emoticons, of course -- is a system established by the creators of phpBB, titled BBCode. If you're familiar with how HTML tags work, BBCode shouldn't be much of a problem to figure out. But for those who need a tutorial, here's a fairly comprehensive guide to mastering BBCode here on IRG. Any forum that operates using phpBB or punBB (the latter of which powers this forum) can make use of all the BBCode you see here in IRG.

You've probably noticed the buttons above the emotions. From left to right, they are labeled B, I, U, S, http://, Img, Code, Quote, mp3 and YouTube. The buttons are there only for those who don't want to enter BBCode directly or can't remember the tags themselves. Once you know a BBCode tag, you can apply it to any other forum that uses BBCode, which is pretty neat.

The first four are boldface, italics, underline and strikethrough, respectively. To use the buttons, highlight the text you wish to format and press the button. If you want to put something in these formats, the tags will look like this:

Code:

[b]stuff in boldface[/b]
[i]stuff in italics[/i]
[u]underlined stuff[/u]
[s]struckthrough stuff[/s]

But if you want to apply both boldface and italics to the same block of text, the rule of HTML tags applies; namely, "First said ends last." Or, in other words, you'd do it like this:

Code:

[b][i]stuff to be formatted[/i][/b]

Notice that the italics are ended before the boldface ends. If you apply the italics before the boldface, then the boldface must end before the italics. These four tags don't need to be applied in the order they appear on the buttons, but it can help when doing some serious formatting.

The next button is the link tag (the one that says "http://"). This is best used for linking sites and (for you deviants and fic writers out there), deviantART accounts to nifty SKU works and Fanfiction.Net stories. It can be used one of two ways. Either you use it like this: http://forums.ohtori.nu/ or like this. The first example is used as such:

Code:

[url]http://forums.ohtori.nu/[/url]

and the second is used as such:

Code:

[url=http://forums.ohtori.nu/]In the Rose Garden[/url] forums

The Img button allows you to directly link images from anywhere on the Internet. Whether it's the Empty Movement Gallery, your Photobucket or Imageshack account, you use the same code. Remember, though, that you have to follow the rules for linking images that Gio and Yasha laid down, and beware of bandwidth leeching -- where you link an image directly from a site but get an entirely different image to discourage wasting the host's available bandwidth!

Code:

[img]http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q280/BioKraze/RoseDuels/Series_ep09_055.jpg[/img]

The above code will produce the following result:

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q280/BioKraze/RoseDuels/Series_ep09_055.jpg
(Because of new Gallery frustrations, mainly to do with my lack of savvy and lack of patience, I'm hotlinking the image from my Photobucket account. Normally, Giovanna allows us to direct-link images from the Empty Movement Gallery here on IRG, but I don't feel like wrestling with the new system, to be frank. Sorry, Gio! Should the rules change, I will update this as necessary.)

The next button is the Code button, which is useful for demonstrating BBCode tags, HTML tags and also for producing ASCII Art, since the font it uses is Courier New, 10 point. In every case where it says "Code" in an indented box, I've used the Code tag to demonstrate the other tags. Because the forum won't let me "nest" Code tags within each other, basically you highlight the stuff to be encased in Code tags and click the "Code" button once. If you want to see how the Code tags work in this tutorial, quote this post but don't reply to it -- just click the words "Go back" next to the Preview button. Changing the square brackets to curly ones here, the BBCode for the complete Code tag is {code}{/code}.

Another oft-used button is the Quote button. If you're quoting a long passage, posting a quote somebody in real life said, or just need to provide a way to say that the words you're typing are not your own, use the Quote function. It works in multiple ways:

Either you can quote anonymously...

BioKraze wrote:

...or you can quote somebody from the forums!

Bio wrote:

You can even shorten someone's name if they're better known one way...

Utena Tenjou wrote:

...or you can quote people from fiction!

To use the Quote function anonymously, use the following code:

Code:

[quote]stuff to be quoted[/quote]

And if you want to insert a name, use this code (my name is being used here as an example):

Code:

[quote=BioKraze]stuff that BioKraze said[/quote]

One of our two newest buttons is the MP3 button. Which...does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. Throw a link to an MP3 file on the Internet between the tags and you've got a nifty little playback function with stop, pause, play and, I believe, volume adjustment and seek adjustment. Embedded MP3s look like this...

Flash not detected
...and are coded like so...

Code:

[m_p_3 url=full URL of the MP3 to link and embed]
(delete the underscores to get the full tag, MP3s embed even within Code tags!)

(AFAIK, this is the only BBCode tag on IRG that, like some HTML tags, has no closing tag. Just plug it in and go on thy way. emot-keke )

The last button (but definitely not the last tag!) is the YouTube button which, like the MP3 button, embeds a YouTube video into your post. Be smart about this, though, and don't be a dick with what you post. This is mainly for posting SKU AMVs you've made or other SKU-related stuff, not for trolling us. Embedded YouTube videos look like this...


(Look ma, no credits! Also, I solemnly swear I didn't make this.)

...and are coded like so...

Code:

[youtube]full URL of the YouTube video to embed[/youtube]

The last tag, and possibly the coolest one, is the Color tag. Using it, you can make your posts prettier by choosing a color that you like, or even taking a color you like from an art program for use! There are two applications for the Color tag. You can use a standard color like red, blue or indigo, or you can use unique colors like chocolate and coral! The code for the colors I just used are such:

Code:

[color=red]red color[/color]
[color=indigo]indigo color[/color]
[color=blue]blue color[/color]
[color=chocolate]chocolate color[/color]
[color=coral]coral color[/color]

Or, if you're inventive, you can use red-green-blue hexadecimal values to create your own colors. Say you wanted a color whose values in red, green and blue were 128 (out of 0 to 255), 64 and 255 respectively. The hexadecimal values for each color are 80, 40, and FF, respectively. To create this color, you'd input this code:

Code:

[color=#8040FF]remember to place the pound sign before the numbers. It's RRGGBB, and capitalization of hexadecimal letters A through F is optional![/color]

(Incidentally, this neonish purple will be what that code would create.)

If you need help converting decimal to hexadecimal, call up Windows Calculator and select Scientific mode. Input the number in decimal, then click on the select option that says "Hex." It'll instantly convert the number from decimal to hexadecimal. Click "Dec" (decimal) to revert. The other two -- octal and binary, or "Oct" and "Bin" -- are completely useless for BBCode.

And (highlight)if you have spoilers that you need to keep hidden, like if you're revealing the climax of a new movie or book(end highlight), then use the following BBCode to make your posts vanish like the wind! (Update: As of 13 February 2014, Yasha has announced that we have to use white to spoiler-fy stuff, because all available code mods either function poorly or interfere with existing code mods. We have a button, but all it does is throw in a preset color tag with white. One less thing to remember, I suppose?)

Code:

[color=white]spoilers to be protected from the naked eye[/color]

Remember that ALL tags will continue to apply their formatting until they've been "closed" -- that is, you include the closing tag where you want the tag to stop applying its formatting. And always remember, first said ends last. I'll use an example from one of the RP games going on...

Code:

[color=royalblue][b]username[/b]>text to be said
[b]username[/b]>text to be said[/color]

It may be easier to copy and paste the first line like such, though...

Code:

[color=peru][b]username[/b]>text to be said[/color]
[color=peru][b]username[/b]>text to be said[/color]

Now, for the unhappies: the stuff that doesn't work, even if you've seen it someplace else.

The text alignment and font size tags don't work in any capacity, from recent testing I've done. (Update! Strikethrough finally works! See the first couple paragraphs for the details!) Some forums support changing the font size in a post, while others support text realignment in a post. IRG is not one of these forums; it's because IRG uses a special version called punBB, which I've heard is a lot easier to modify for your purposes, and is much more secure than phpBB. Sadly, this means that any such "dead" tags used in a signature or post will be equally lifeless unless Gio (or Yasha, as of 22 July 2013) mods the holy hell out of the code to allow it.

That's about it as far as BBCode tags go for IRG. If there are any more tags you've independently tested in IRG to be useful or if you have any new default colors for the Color tag, feel free to include them here so that we can all share the wealth of knowledge! And remember, also, that all tags can be used in PMs, whether or not you see the buttons for them!

NOTICES:
* Yasha has gone on record as saying that, no matter what else happens to IRG's code, font size will NEVER be part of it. Coming from forums which allow text resizing, I couldn't agree with this executive veto more.

Re: Using BBCode in IRG -- and Elsewhere, too!

The Code button just lets you show off the BBCode tags you're using, or to fiddle around with ASCII art. Just highlight what you want in the Code tags and click the Code button. Unfortunately, I can't show you what the Code tags look like on their own because the forum won't let me nest them within each other. Try a couple of posts out using the Code tag and click Preview to see what it turns up.

Re: Using BBCode in IRG -- and Elsewhere, too!

New Emote Trial

This isn't bbcode, but this is the best place to put it-- I have another set of emotes already on our hosting, and they are free for anyone to use. Also, if anyone has an emote they want to use, put it on some hosting (imgur, flickr, photobucket, your own site, whatever) and post it in this thread, including the code to use it. I will add it to this post.  You can use these emotes in your posts like this:

Code:

[img]http://ohtori.nu/forumstuff/emotes/emot-suicide.gif[/img]

http://ohtori.nu/forumstuff/emotes/emot-suicide.gif

If any of these start to see common use, Gio has agreed to add a couple more emotes to the bbcode list there, but I don't want her to have to do the coding if people don't use them.

Re: Using BBCode in IRG -- and Elsewhere, too!

(Stepping out of my custom color for this post! Onward, all!)

Okay, so in the first post I described the color tag, and how a user can manhandle it to procure all sorts of web-friendly and decidedly non-web-friendly colors. Most of these work well enough on a white background, like we have here. Others, not so much. Building off the color tag's demonstration, plus the outside link to a full list of colors, I've provided here a full inventory of the official web-friendly colors. Each is presented as the name to insert in the color tag's variable, in that color.

Or, to put it more TL;DR, it'll look like this: >red< >blue< >indigo< -- easy enough, yes?

>BEGIN LIST

>aliceblue< >antiquewhite< >aqua< >aquamarine< >azure< >beige< >bisque< >black< >blanchedalmond< >blue<

>dimgray< >dodgerblue< >firebrick< >floralwhite< >forestgreen< >fuchsia< >gainsboro< >ghostwhite< >gold< >goldenrod<

>gray< >green< >greenyellow< >honeydew< >hotpink< >indianred< >indigo< >ivory< >khaki< >lavender<

(Also, for those who wondered, "color" no longer looks like an actual word to me as I post this. emot-frown )

Bonus Colors~!
Because I love all y'alls so much (no really, for reals and for serious! etc-love ), I'm going to do here what I'd once promised myself I'd never do. My custom font colors...are now yours. My thoughts to your thoughts, and all. emot-keke Also, this is an abridged, colorful history of my colorful history on IRG. Bonus!

#A04080 (r160, g64, b128) -- my latest "standard" font color. I affectionately call it my "Shiori color." emot-keke
#4060C0 (r64, g96, b192) -- my prior "standard" font color, now used for emphasis with the Shiori color. This is my "legacy color," bearing an uncanny resemblence to the royal blue standard. The posts of mine in this color are much older. emot-redface
#8040A0 (r128, g64, b160) -- my original "standard" font color, now used exclusively for roleplaying, and very rarely at that. This is my "Anthy color," and the only posts of mine older than those using this are my very first posts (in basic black). Hats off to Tamago, the God of Comedy, for teaching me the BBCode color tag! emot-dance
#C0A060 (r192, g160, b96) -- a gold-ish color, used exclusively for roleplaying in two (maybe three) long-dead threads. Really used only by a single virtual NPC, who made uncommon appearances.
#A03040 (r160, g48, b64) -- a red color, used back when blue was my default. Whenever I'd post in red, I was either about to blow my stack on some innocent forumite or had already experienced complete meltdown. Since it's hard to discern the red from the Shiori-mauve, I've confined it to virtual NPC use in the aforementioned roleplays, who made equally rare appearances.
#40A060 (r64, g160, b96) -- a greenish, not-quite-dark mint color. Used originally for contrast with the Anthy color (IIRC, anyway, lame joke; purple hair, green eyes), I now use it for basically announcing "yaaaaaay, I'm gonna be siiiiiick! emot-dance "
#A0A0A0 (r160, g160, b160) -- a lighter-than-light gray color, used exclusively in roleplay for ghostly NPCs. It saw use in at most two threads on all of IRG.
#E06010 (r224, g96, b16) -- the tackiest color of the whole bunch. Garish orange. Euch. I don't even know why I made this color; maybe it was supposed to be copper, or bronze? Idonno. Clearly, I was delirious from lack of sleep due to being a 24/7 raging asshole in the early days. emot-redface

Re: Using BBCode in IRG -- and Elsewhere, too!

To be fair, I kinda siphoned the names off a notecard that came with an item I'd bought on Second Life. >>;;;

Polls! How to make them, how to use them!

Polls can only be created during topic creation, and are not grandfathered in for topics existing before its function was implemented. To create a poll, tick the checkbox that says "Add a poll to this topic" at the bottom, when creating a new topic but before confirming the rest of the topic's post itself. The poll is created shortly before the topic is created itself. You are allowed a maximum of ten different poll items (minimum one poll item, I assume) and one question to ask, though you can get pretty creative with it, considering we're a bunch of SKU fans. emot-wink However, you're allowed to give other vIRGins the opportunity to select multiple answers by, simply enough, ticking the checkbox that says "Allow more than one answer selected."

If you don't like any of the choices presented in a poll -- either one you've already made or one belonging to another vIRGin -- you're allowed to submit a null vote. Doing so, however, prevents you from ever submitting an actual answer to the poll. Statistics are given in percentages of the voters first, then actual number of voters, for each option. The total number of voters is given at the bottom of the poll itself. The poll is always arranged in your browser after the announcements and before the first post of that page, regardless of custom pagination options.

So to confirm, to post a gif I can just use the img button right?  Sorry if this seems obvious but I'm having trouble getting a gif to work in another post.

Pretty much. You click on it, and paste the address into the bar that pops up.

Re: Using BBCode in IRG -- and Elsewhere, too!

I must be doing something wrong...  When I find images and I past them into the img tag they never come out right.  It's like a broken link.  Should I be using a converter or.. what am I doing? 

The only post I've been able to get it to work in was one in the Steven Universe thread...  and just once.  Any pointers?

Edit... except for when I was putting THAT image up as a joke/example.... *facepalm*

Re: Using BBCode in IRG -- and Elsewhere, too!

You've got image hosting, right?

You the site hosts everything in the gallery, so it's free to post, but anything else, you kinda gotta find a host for it yourself.  Hint: tumblr functions as at least temporary image hosting if you post pictures.  emot-wink
