How To's: HERE

How do I post a picture?

First make sure that the picture that you're wanting to post is uploaded to the internet. There are a lot of free services out there. One of the most popular is http://www.photobucket.com

Once the picture is uploaded get the link to the URL where the picture is located. You can find the link to a picture by right clicking on the image and then selecting the properties of the image. Hightlight and copy the Address (URL)

Once you have the url all you have to do is paste it where you want it and put the image codes around it.

You can put the codes around the URL two ways.
  • Highlight your URL and then click on the Img box at the top of your posting box and it will put the image tags in front of and behind your URL.
  • Manually type them in the front and back of your URL as you go.


For Example:
I want to use the picture that's in my signature. The URL is ==> http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/ ... nity/1.jpg

Without the IMAGE tags all you see is the URL... Now all I have to do is this to my URL and it will show the picture in my signature.

Code: Select all

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/Bordersinsanity/1.jpg [/img]


Image

see the image tags? the [*img] always goes in front and [*/img] always goes at the end. Make sure to take out the * to make the code works.

If for some reason it's not working make sure that there are no spaces within the string. Spaces causes the code not to work.

How do I post a picture with a link?

Follow the instructions in the first post for posting an image. Find the URL to the page that you want to go to...

For example when you click on the image I want you to go to the Archives. The link to the archives is this ==> http://www.roswellfanatics.net/archive/archive.html

The code for a URL is [*url] and [/*url] (make sure to take out the * to make the code work.)

So in order to make the link work where you click the picture and you're taken there you have to first put the URL and then the picture link and then close all tags.

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.roswellfanatics.net/archive/archive.html][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v391/Bordersinsanity/1.jpg[/img][/url]

Image

If for some reason it's not working make sure that there are no spaces within the string. Spaces causes the code not to work.

How do I post a link without showing the address but the title of my story?


It's basically the same way as the previous post...

1). Find the URL to your story.

*Lets say that the URL is the same as the URL to the ARCHIVES ==> http://www.roswellfanatics.net/archive/archive.html

2). Put the URL= tag in front of the URL and then put the end bracket at the end of the URL

3). Type what you want to have displayed. In this case I'm choosing to display "ARCHIVES"

4). Close the code by putting the [*/url] tag at the end. (remember to take out the *'s to make the code work.)

see below.

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.roswellfanatics.net/archive/archive.html]ARCHIVES[/url]

How do I change the color of a word?

There are a couple of ways to do this.

The color code is [*color=whatever color] [*/color] -- remember to take out the *'s to make the code work.

1). type your word and highlight it and then select a color from the drop down box for the font colour.

2). go to this website http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/ref ... lor_codes/ and select a hex code for the color that you're wanting to use. Instead of using the word use the code for instance the code for red is #FF0000

Code: Select all

[color=red]c[/color][color=orange]o[/color][color=yellow]l[/color][color=green]o[/color][color=blue]r[/color]
color

REMEMBER FOR EVERY COLOR THAT YOU CHANGE TO YOU HAVE TO CLOSE THE TAGS FOR THE PREVIOUS COLOR.

You have to use <*center> and <*/center>.

EDITED: Oh, read this. Sorry... :oops:

That's it. For some reason the code for centering requires that you use the <> instead of []

thanks for answering.

How do you indent text?

I was pulling my hair out trying to figure this out recently.

Example: I want the --- below to be 3 spaces instead.

The quick brown fox
---Jumped over the lazy dog's back.


Inserting a bunch of spaces or "&nbsp;" doesn't work. I've also tried [*sp] which is suppose to be BBCode for "&nbsp;". Neither did [*block] or <blockquote>.

BUT...

I discovered you can use the ISO-8859-1 Character for non-breaking space and it works. Remove the * in the character below, no spaces between the # and the 1.

&#*160;


Example: Now it looks like this with 3 of these in it...

The quick brown fox
   Jumped over the lazy dog's back.
