Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Community Formatting Guide

Sometimes your well-written text blocks are enough, but other times you might have to give detail to your posts. This is where formatting joins.

Every blog, wiki and forum software allows the use of a markup language to make your threads the most beautiful of them all. Some of them are Markdown, HTML itself, and BBCode, which is used by this forum.
BBCode is a strict markup language similar to HTML. It features tags with the same names of HTML tags, but it uses square brackets "[ ]" instead of angle brackets "< > ". If you know HTML, this markup language should be easy to use.

BBCode Rules
Basic Formatting
Text Blocks
Embeds
Nested tags
Smilies
Previews

The only guide available is the forum's help page, which only explains the default BBCode tags. The other guides by Zoey were removed due to personal issues.

The objective of this guide is to keep it clean, friendly, and update it whether any new formatting feature is implemented.

Re: Community Formatting Guide

Overall a great guide //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/big_smile There's just a few things I would improve:

  • <> can be called brackets if they are being used in that way, so I would say 'bbcode uses square brackets instead of angle brackets' instead (or at least call [] square brackets).

  • I would put the nested tags section in with bbcode rules, and have examples of how to use =, because then all the syntax is in one place.

  • I wouldn't say trigger blocks work exactly the same as spoilers, even if you explain the difference later, because this has led a lot of people to be confused about when to use each, maybe say similar to instead of exactly like.

  • Maybe include the actual options for how you do an alphabetical / numeric list.

  • Should probably explain how to get the topic / post / forum ids for the forum link tags.

I didn't know they could be called brackets too. Thanks for that.

I decided to explain the usage of nested tags after explaining how every tag worked, to prevent any kind of initial confusion.

For users who have trigger content hidden, which are the majority, trigger blocks work just like spoilers, with the detail of the TRIGGER WARNING text being part of the spoiler title. For users who have them shown, they work like quotes, with a TRIGGER WARNING heading text.

I believe that whoever decides to set them to be shown, should know the functionality of the trigger blocks.

Added.

Explained that, as differentiating between posts and topics is a bit confusing.

Thank you for all your suggestions. They've helped a lot with this guide. I hope you can find more improvements and flaws, I really appreciate it.

Re: Community Formatting Guide

excuse me you missed the ins tag


I'm off to scout camp for a week, so I won't be on at all. Completely cut off from the outside world. It's gonna be great ('cept 4 teh fud ofc.) cuz dat fud b nazty. liek srsly nazty. I IS LIKE SO PUMPED I DUN GIVE A CRAP ABOUT GRAMMR!!!!one!!!eleven1. So. Bye. When I get back I'll know how to shape metal and carve wood. I already know how to make baskets, towers(like big ones), find my way with a map, run for my life, and how to get caught in a tornado bcuz srsly that Knsas weathr is liek totaly krazy. It's like raining for 10 min then it stops and u look outsid and then you cant c a single cloud liek anywer? Yeh, is liek dat. I'll be living in a canvas, semi-permanent tent and using tons of bug spray because those ticks are absolutely awful there. And then it gets so dang hot there its like omg I'm melting and then you look at your hand where your canteen was (bcuz if u dun have a canteen in ur hand u r srsly slow and might even die) and ur hand melted off. Well, I've spammed enough and described how I will be living enough for now. Bye!

Added, although use of that tag is really discouraged.

EDIT: The inserted text tag has has been modified to not make the text barely visible, so the tag can be used properly now.
