Title: Why do we have this section?
Post by: PetrifiedWood on February 28, 2012, 03:37:36 PM
Sometimes you might want to test out some feature of the BB code, or see how a font looks, etc. Maybe you have never posted pictures or video before and want to try it to make sure it looks right before posting. There are plenty of reasons you might want to make a post that doesn't clutter up the regular forum sections. Well, this is the place! Feel free to start a new thread, or just add to this one.

From time to time we might choose to delete posts in this section just to save space, since these are just test posts it shouldn't bother anyone. :)

I'll play!  There are a few features of the text editor I've been curious about.

Like "Marque":
Wonder what this is all about?

Or the Strike Through?  Good for me 'cause I make a lot of tipos, er, typos.

And what the heck is this Shadow thing all about? I REALLY WONDER!

Glow?  What the heck is THAT?

Oh, man! These tools could be dangerous in the wrong hands!

Thanks for creating this Test section!

I always wondered what some of these features were.

So, does this mean I don't have to write out "degrees" when I'm talking about 30o F? Cool!

And I can actually say H2O!!!

I figured out how to make the glow different than the default red with the black font color.

How annoying would it be if I was to write a long post like this....? Would it even work??? Let's see. Knife of doom post without pics/links...
The Cursed Blade of Doom is finally finished...Again!
Seems like bad luck follows this knife. I first got it from Samthedog at last years Scandinavian meet.
It was a nice little knife (Little did I know....)
It didn't have a sheath, so I decided to make one for it:
Then This happened (dog ate my homework):
It's taken me some time to get around to it, but I finally managed to put a new handle on it, and make a new sheath.
Now, on the day I finished the knife, my wife's grandma died. So I had to wait with the sheath until yesterday morning.
After finishing wetforming the sheath I had to let it dry out, so I drove to the store for some groceries. On my way home, I ran into a neighbor of mine...Literally! My car's a wreck (his didn't get a dent), which is no fun when you a)live 10km from anywhere and b) are broke. :(
At the moment I'm wondering if these are just coincidences, or if I should just send the knife to someone I don't like! ;):D
As for the knife, I think it turned out ok. It's going to be (one of) my main knives. ;)

WW.

In your editor, there is a "sup" button for superscript just to the right of the moving text button. This gives you superscript. Just drop a lowercase "o" between the tags and you'll get a degree symbol in a roundabout way.

WW.
Type you message, including the degrees number. Then immediately following the number click on the little button below the "Font Face" window that says "sup". Then type a lowercase "o", and then click the "sup" button again.  It will come out looking like 32o.  The "sup" stands for "superscript".
Title: Re: Why do we have this section?
Post by: WoodsWoman on February 29, 2012, 08:07:04 PM
 Its 34o       (testing)

Cooool...   with all the sups in there I wasnt sure I was doing it right.   Thanks OP.

I know theres a set of numbers to push that will bring out the degrees symbol too..but have long forgotten them.

So does this mean we need a cooking and recipe section? I can do that...

But we do want to keep the forum streamlined. I'll set the section up and if it gets a lot of use we'll keep it. If it's cobwebs and tumbleweeds after a few weeks we'll fold the threads back into the general discussion or country living sections.

Sound fair? :)

On the second row, 2nd button from the left, you see an icon next to the YouTube icon that sorta looks like a camera. Click on that, then paste the link to your picture into the box (over the highlighted 'http:' text. There's an easier way to do it from PhotoBucket, but this will work also.

(http://i979.photobucket.com/albums/ae277/Yeoman13/Hiking%2022%20Nov%2009/100_0392.jpg)


The easiest way is from PB itself. If you have the right options turned on, when you hover over a picture in your gallery you'll get a drop-down menu. Click on "IMG Code" and it will automatically copy all you need. Then put your cursor in the spot in your post where you want the picture. You can either type CTRL-V, or right click and choose "paste".

Log in to PB, hover over your account name (upper right corner) and one of the drop down options will be Account Setting. Click on that and then pick the Album Settings tab. Go down to Links and check the boxes you want to appear when you hover over a picture in your gallery.

Not that I'm aware of. It's a popup, and ti will stay open until you take a conscious action to close it.

However, you can use this smiley reference to find the code, and type them in manually. I have a few of my favorites memorized so I don't need to open the window to post them.
