    This thread is for questions and answers about BBcode on the board.

    Spoiler: Buttons ("Spoiler Tags")
    Buttons ("Spoiler Tags)

    Spoiler: What are they?
    These are buttons used to cover up images of large size or content that may spoil the plot of a series/movie (such as information from the manga, not yet covered in the anime)


    Spoiler: How do I use them
    [Spoiler=Text on Button]Content Revealed[/Spoiler]

    Will show up as

    Spoiler: Text on Button
    Content Revealed


    [Spoiler]Content Revealed[/Spoiler]

    Will show up as
    Spoiler:
    Content Revealed


    Spoiler: Image Tags
    Image tags
    Spoiler: What are they?
    These are how you place images on the board. Remember to use spoiler tags to reduce the space of large images.


    Spoiler: How do I use them
    [LINKHL]216[/LINKHL]
    The url is the web address of the image you wish to display. Should this file be on your computer instead, use to upload the file.

    Then use that url to for the image tag.

    [LINKHL]217[/LINKHL]

    will display



    Use with a spoiler tag like so:
    [SPOILER=Image!][LINKHL]217[/LINKHL][/SPOILER]

    To get:



    Spoiler: Font properties (Size, Bold, Italics and Strikeouts)
    Font properties (Size, Bold, Italics and Strikeouts)

    Most of these can be found on the toolbar.

    [B]Bold[/B] -------- Text
    [I]Italics[/I] -------- Italics
    [U]Underline[/U] -- Underline
    [S]Strikeout[/S] --- Strikeout

    [SIZE=1]Size 1[/SIZE] -------- Size 1
    [SIZE=7]Size 7[/SIZE] -------- Size 7
    (And anything in between)

    Use the dropdown box that says "fonts" for a list of the fonts.​


    Spoiler: List/Bullet points
    List/Bullet points

    Spoiler: Bullets

    [list]

    [*]Blarg!

    [*]Roar!

    [*]Arg!
    [/list]

    To get:

    • Blarg!
    • Roar!
    • Arg!


    Spoiler: Numbered

    [list=1]

    [*]Blarg!

    [*]Roar!

    [*]Arg!
    [/list]

    1. Blarg!
    2. Roar!
    3. Arg!


    Spoiler: Alphabetical

    [list=a]

    [*]Blarg!

    [*]Roar!

    [*]Arg!
    [/list]

    • Blarg!
    • Roar!
    • Arg!

    [left]This puts it to the left side.[/left]​
    [CENTER]In the center[/CENTER]​
    [RIGHT]To the right[/RIGHT]​

    Hopefully this is the correct place to ask... I'm... code-retarded, heh.

    I'd like to increase the size of the Hiyori image in my sig, but I can't figure out how to. Just like the cat images, when I put 'em on imageshack and put them in my sig they're smaller than they were before! Is there a way to fix that on this board, or would that require something like MSPaint?

    Ah, thank you! Figures I'd ask this in the wrong place. :sweatdrop

    Sorry Reznor.

    That's not gonna work when you embed videos from YouTube as the autoplay is an addition into the URL. Seeing as the [YOUTUBE] tag work from video IDs, it's not gonna work unless the forum allows a full embed version eventually. Though I've seen people use full URLs in the [YOUTUBE] tag but I don't know where/what/why that work somewhere and somewhere not.

    Else it would be to add &autoplay=1 after the YT ID.

    Though I'm quite sure I've seen embedded YouTube videos autoplay on NF before. Maybe someone else knows.

    Read what I said above. Though it depends on what you're embedding. YouTube videos work fine. And DivShare works at least. I'm not aware of what else will.

    Use DivShare.com for audio files. If you want regular YouTube videos, take the ID only from the URL and use [YOUTUBE]IDGOESHERE[/YOUTUBE]

    For instance:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOcc4E0enyI
    Should be:
    [YOUTUBE]DOcc4E0enyI[/YOUTUBE]

    Sorry if you already knew this. Feel free to give me details about what else you had in mind.

    Huh?

    probably removing any confusion from the comments towards midnighttoker who may have been asking about how to get embedded html code to work directly instead of knowing the bbcode tags for the various video streaming sites.

    I asked a couple mods about this, but they didn't seem to have an answer.

    I wanted to put a live countdown timer in my sig, according to other vBulletin powered forums BB code

    [countdown]year,month,day,hr,min,sec[/countdown]

    seems to work, and since HTML isn't allowed for users, just wondering why this code doesn't work on NF while being powered by vBulletin?

    is there any other option besides BB codes to have a live countdown timer on my sig?

    I believe that the countdown timer, to have it in sigs, is a usermade custom modification for vBulletin, we likely don't have the mod at all and thus you are unable to use a countdown timer in your sig.

    I don't believe so. The method that I use to set Youtube videos on HD by default doesn't work with the YMP3 tag.

    Anyways, we have a new BB code that allows one to Justify posts. Updated Reznor's post, one can see how to use under Text Alignment.

    I'm not aware of any way to do that with an embeded video on NF, the method that allows one ot link to them doesn't work with bbcode. All you can do is link the youtube video at a specific point by adding the "#t=(number)s" at the end of the url.
