All your BB Code needs

Question

GTA3Rockstar

 

BB Codes

 

All BB Codes deal with [ ] and /

 

Also close a code with [/NAMEOFCODE]

 

For example [bbcode]TEXT HERE[/bbcode]

 

Most of the codes can be accesse right above the post but for signature, you have to manually add them yourself.

 

Now lets get to the actual code to work with your sigs and posts.

 

 

Code - This allows you to post BB Code without it doing what it's suppose to do. Allows you to see the Code.

 

[code]Type your text here[\code]

 

 

Alignment - This can position your posts and sigs from right or center, left is by default.

 

This alignment is to the right
[align=right]TEXT HERE[/align]

 

 

This alignment is in the center

TEXT HERE

 

 

Font Codes - Allows you to change how your font looks and appears.

 

Bold

 

[b]TEXT HERE[/b]

 

Italics

 

[i]TEXT HERE[/i]

 

Underline

 

[u]TEXT HERE[/u]

 

Color

 

[color=COLOR]TEXT HERE[/color]

 

Size

 

[size=SIZE]SIZE -5 to 5[/size]

 

Font

 

[font=FONT]TEXT HERE[/font]

 

 

 

URL - Embeds a link for people to click on.

 

GTAForums

 

 WHAT YOU WANT IT TO SAY

 

 

 

Image - Places an image. Must be uploaded to a website to show. (www.isarapix.com or www.imageshack.us)

 

user posted image

 

[img=URL OF IMAGE]

 

 

 

Youtube - Allows you to place video into a post.

 

 

Once you find a video you want to show on the forum. You copy and past the ID number of the video. Picture for reference.

user posted image

 

ID NUMBER OF VIDEO 

 

 

 

 

Tables - These are a bit complicated but this should help you out. There are two typs of tables, ones with borders and ones without. For complex tables, pm me.

 

Basic parts to tables are the <Table>/<Tableb><TR><TD><TH>

<Table> - Without borders

<Tableb> - With borders

<TR> - Makes the Rows

<TD> - Makes the Columns

<TH> - Title/Header of the Table. Makes it bold.

 

 

Without borders

 

 

Column 1 Row 1 Column 2 Row 1
Column 1 Row 2 Column 2 Row 2
[table]COLUMN 1 ROW 1COLUMN 2 ROW 1COLUMN 1 ROW 2COLUMN 2 ROW 2[table]

 

 

With borders

 

 

Column 1 Row 1 Column 2 Row 1
Column 1 Row 2 Column 2 Row 2
[tableb]COLUMN 1 ROW 1COLUMN 2 ROW 1COLUMN 1 ROW 2COLUMN 2 ROW 2[tableb]

 

 

Side note #1 - To add more rows. Open a new TR code with a TD

 

C1 R1C2 R1C3 R1

 

 

Side note #2 - To add more columns. Open a new TD without opening a second TR

 

C1 R1[/td]C2 R1[/td]C3 R1

 

 

 

Misc. - Just some random, but helpful/fun codes.

@Angrybanana5000, Yeah i think i understand now. So it pretty much takes you down the page to that exact location of info your looking for in the same post/page. Like how it works in Wikipedia, right?

Yes, exactly.

Thanks Angrybanana5000 smile.gif

 

@GTA3Rockstar, you have made a mistake in your codes. When talking about tables with borders and columns, it reads:

 

 

Side note #2 - To add more columns. Open a new TD without opening a second TR

 

C1 R1[/td]C2 R1[/td]C3 R1

 

 

There is a mistake in the code, the second pair of

, between "C2 R1," both [td]'s have slashes in them. The first one is not suppose to have a / in it. Fix that because i couldn't figure out what i was doing wrong at first, it might mess up other forumers, too.

It's because you haven't closed off your final

[tableb]

tag mate.

 

Try this;

 

 

[tableb]COLUMN 1 ROW 1COLUMN 2 ROW 1COLUMN 1 ROW 2COLUMN 1 ROW 2[/tableb]

 

 

Produces this:

 

 

COLUMN 1 ROW 1 COLUMN 2 ROW 1
COLUMN 1 ROW 2 COLUMN 2 ROW 2

Lol, there we go. Use the code I gave you above.

So, if i wanted to post in a different colour, then i would have to, everytime i post, post the code? Such as, if i wanted to post in this colour and bold. I would have to manually post it in every post i make?

If possible, could any mod/admin fix the Anchor code? It's bugging me to death having to have a back-up on my hard drive for every time i edit a post that uses it.

Go down a bit

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jumping to here.

 

 

The tag doesn't really work as well as it should. You need to use something like:

 

[jumpto=#section]Click here to go to ...[/jumpto][anchor=section][/anchor]

The implementation of the these BBcodes is indeed not correct. The anchor code add's a "#" that it shouldn't. Also the reverse translation, when editing a posts with these codes is not correct, resulting in html-codes.

Hey guys, how do you span rows in tables (if doable)? I found a number of ways various bbcode versions support, but non of them work on GTAF.

 

example:

 

 

this should span over first two columns this should span over the other two columns
first column second column third column fourth column
[tableb]this should span over first two columnsthis should span over the other two columnsfirst columnsecond columnthird columnfourth column[/tableb]

 

 

Thanks!

 

EDIT:

I kinda solved it with table nesting, but that's just not it.

 

lol, if I paste this table, everything get's broken and I get my sig on the right.

[tableb]1st 2 columnsother 2 columns[tableb]first columnsecond columnfirst columnsecond column[/tableb][tableb]third columnfourth columnthird columnfourth column[/tableb][/tableb]

I'm afraid that's impossible. Perhaps you could try to make it look as if the rows are spanned over multiple columns.

 

 

This should span
over first two columns
This should span over
the other two columnsfirst columnsecond columnthird columnfourth column
[table][align=right]This should span[/align]over first two columns[align=right]This should span over[/align]the other two columnsfirst columnsecond columnthird columnfourth column[/table]

 

 

However this becomes more apparent in the case of [tableb].

Thanks, nice idea. However, I gave up, since that table wouldn't fit in my sig anyway biggrin.gif

I didn't want to make a topic so I'll post a noob question: is there a BB CODE to have a pop up transparent window showing text info when passing the mouse over the text? Is that only available to the boards' staff?

I mean the window you see when you point the mouse arrow at a member medal (like the one I have), only in this case working on some text posted in a topic.

Thanks in advance. smile.gif
