The is a test post for the purpose of demonstrating the features of the new board.

http://www.vanguard.com

2. Formatting text is easy. Just highlight a block of text, hit the 'B' button for bold, 'i' for italics, 'u' for underline. For example:

Quoting the post you are responding to is also easy. Just hit the quote button before you reply.

Edit: corrected typo

Editing a post is also easy. If you made typo or want to make clarification, no problem! Just hit the Edit button. Common usage requires that you put a note at the end saying what you edited, but it's totally up to you!

formatting

Postby tfb » Wed Feb 21, 2007 10:36 am

I found a much easier way to format text. Maybe others already knew. Just select the part of the text you want to format ("highlight" it), then hit the 'B' button for bold, 'i' for italics, 'u' for underline.

Updated first post.

Not built into the forum software, however, there are add-ons.

In any case, if you want spell checking, why not get a free web browser that has spell checking built-in so that you can benefit from it all the time?

That's probably the easiest way to do it.

The esteemed poster Wagnerjb wrote:Alternatively, I can use the M* method of cutting and pasting from the other conversation and highlighting the text, but that leaves the author's name off.
You can also highlight the text you want to quote then click on the Quote button. That won't insert the author's name but you can add it by appending ="username." In fact, you can append almost anything you like as I did here using this:
Code: Select all

Andy - There are may roads to Dublin :wink:

One option is what you are doing
Second option is copy the content you want to quote (could be from the earlier post or from another website) and in your reply hit the "Quote" button, paste the content you want to quote and then hit the Quote button.

Same goes for bold/italics/underline etc.

more text formatting

Postby tfb » Wed Feb 21, 2007 10:15 pm

1. To change font color, highlight a block of text, select a color in the "Font colour" dropdown (phpBB is written by Brits?).

red text

green text

2. To change font size, highlight a block of text, select a size in the "Font size" dropdown.

large size

small size

3. Preview to see how it looks like and then Submit.

From the bbCodeGuide
...the image you display must already be available on the Internet (it cannot exist only on your computer, for example, unless you run a webserver!). There is currently no way of storing images locally with phpBB (all these issues are expected to be addressed in the next release of phpBB). To display an image, you must surround the URL pointing to the image with tags.

Looks like for now:
  1. you'd have to save the graph as an image file
  2. put it up on the web somewhere
  3. link to that url with the img tags

Creating lists

Postby hansp » Tue Feb 27, 2007 10:50 am

Lists (like the one in my previous post) are easy!

For a bulleted list:
  • Click "List"
  • Type * inside [] followed by the text for each item in your list
  • Click "List" again to end the list
For an ordered list:
  1. Do the same as above, except click "List="
  2. Put a "1" after the =
  3. You still use a * in [] for each item
  4. the software knows to increment each item

Doing the same as above except with an "a" instead of a "1" will give:
  1. An alphabetical list

Check out http://www.diehards.org/forum/faq.php?mode=bbcode#6 for more details.

Step 1) For a really simple way, try pressing the Print Screen button on your keyboard, which will take a snapshot of your screen, and then pasting into a graphics program. Save as PNG or JPG for best quality, or if it's a simple graph without a lot of color, GIF will work.

Step 2) Host the image at ImageShack. It's simple and free. (Unless its a really detailed graph, you'll probably want to check the resize option to make the graphic a manageable size. An example 640x480 sized image is shown below and may be about the maximum size you need).

Step 3) Once you push the Host It! button at ImageShack, it will show you a whole bunch of URL addresses. Use the bottom URL to paste into your message here.

I prefer http://tinypic.com/ because it's even simpler to use and it produces IMG links without referbacks.

Also, there's a companion site that's worth mentioning, http://tinyurl.com/ A lot of forum software, including phpBB, doesn't handle long URLs very well. In phpBB's case, it stretches the width of thread displays making them very hard to read. (There's a MOD to phpBB that addresses this problem that I imagine is on Phoenix's and Alex's to-do list (hint, hint ;)))

Another reason for using tinyURL.com is that phpBB sometimes has trouble with URLs that contain special characters. If you see that when you Preview a post, just use tinyURL.com to make the URL compatible with phpBB.

I am going to test the font size.

This is regular text and normal (12 point) font size.

This is quoted text and normal (12 point) font size.

This is quoted text and (13 point) font size.

This is quoted text and (14 point) font size.

This is quoted text and large (18 point) font size.


Is it just me? Or does the quoted text appear smaller than regular (unquoted) text? It looks like if I wanted to match sizes, I should use 13 point in the quoted text (and not use normal size for quoted text) in order to be the same size (in appearance) as normal (non-quoted) text.

Edit 1:

OK, let's try this.

This is regular text and normal (12 point) font size.

This is quoted text and (13 point) font size.

I never noticed before because I'm an unnoticing kind of person, but do believe you are right.

Kathy

Here's something else I notice. The first (nested) quote from me appears to be a smaller size. But the outer quote (arrete's) looks normal size.

I know what you you're thinking. Does size really matter? :P

Maybe not. But when I quote a long passage like I did HERE, I at least want to make sure it is not too small to read.

TinyPic works really well too, and will even give you the URL with the [IMG] tags already in it.

Hi,
I am also just trying this out.

This table contains the basic financial concepts we discuss frequently on this site (scroll way down). I wanted to experiment using the compare/contrast strategy for better understanding and comprehension (I am a retired teacher). I labeled them as the old 20th century way of investing versus the new 21st century thinking.

Many of the 21st century concepts and ideas originated in the 20th century, however, these ideas have survived, developed and replaced some of the old, discredited ideas because they don't work on the behalf of 21 century informed and self taught investor.

Thanks to Taylor's investment gems and my readings, I have simply borrowed the ideas from the authors listed on this forum and a few are from my experiences.

One last thing, I have used HTML code to create this table but the lines do not show even though the table looks perfect on my browser. The other annoying result is that the display is the blank space between my message here and the table down below. I am told there is no work around.
Thanks,
Steve

[Note from Admin Alex. I figured out a workaround. You have to take all the line breaks out of the HTML code. It makes for messy code, but it displays OK. I've done this with the following table]

When you hit "edit", you get a box similar to the one you originally typed your message in, except it now contains your message, as posted.

Simply make your changes in that box and then hit "Submit" again, so the new changes can take effect.

In this post, RobG reported he couldn't see the two images I referenced with the HTML "img" tag. When I created it I thought I closed the tag (with the "/>" shortcut) but when I look at the source I see only ">". So I'm going to try again:

Code: Select all
<img src="http://web.me.com/rlhinkley/bheads/TIPSAuctions_2011_0429.gif" width="800" height="450">

Wow! even inside the "code" the "/>" gets changed to ">"

<img src="http://web.me.com/rlhinkley/bheads/TIPSAuctions_2011_0429.gif" width="800" height="450">

Now I'm going to explicitly close it.

? I see both of #Cruncher's graphs.

What graphs? He has some nice HTML code but no pictures as I see it...

Edit: Can see them in Chrome, not in Firefox 3.6.17.

I can't see them in FF either. They are there in IE tho.

I removed the scaling, just the URL and will let phpBB do the scaling.

No problem to see the image above. I'm using Firefox 4.0.1 in Ubuntu Linux. Maybe because it's a .GIF file?

Try this .png:
Code: Select all

Next, a .jpg:

Wrong Spelling

Postby Parthenon » Fri Aug 12, 2011 8:09 am

See if I can go back and correct spelling errors in the subject line.

Yes, spelling errors can be corrected. Makes me wonder why people let those errors go uncorrected unless they are not aware.
