How To Use Bullentin Board Coding (BBC)

This is a compilation of the coding tips made in the Making your first posts, some guidelines thread, where Goldfish (and others [who will be mentioned when I get to their bits]) made tutorials for them.


Basics

The most basic 'tags' of BBC are Bold, Underline, Italics and Strikethrough. To give text either of these simple put either a b (Bold), u (Underline), i (Italics) or s (Strikethrough) in square brackets ([]) at the beginning of the text you want to alter, and the same but with a / before the letter (so [/]).

It should look something like this:

Code: [Select]
[b]Bold[/b], [u]Underline[/u], [i]Italics[/i] and [s]Strikethrough[/s]
You can use more than one BBC at once e.g. Messy, which looks like:

Code: [Select]
[b][i][u][s]Messy[/s][/u][/i][/b]
It's usually best to close them in the opposite order that you opened them as I have done above.


Shortcuts

The shortcuts to the above are the buttons above the posting box when you click on . They look like this:

When you click them the open and close tag will be inserted wherever you were writing before you pressed it. Meanign you must then go between the brackets and write the text.

Alternatively you can simply highlight the text you want the BBC to effect and it will open and close it for you (keeping it [and the new code] highlighted, allowing you to easily apply multiple codes quickly).


More BBC

Other slightly more complex, yet still simple examples of BBC are Glow () and Shadow (, it's usually best to use the buttons for these and experiment with the numbers, colours etc.


Text Formatiing BBCs

Returning once more to the less complex ones are the alignment BBCs:
Align Left
Centered*
Align Right

To use these simply put either left, center or right in the square brackets (remembing the / when closing it) around the text you want to align. It should look something like the below:

Code: [Select]
[left]Align Left[/left]
[center]Centered*[/center]
[right]Align Right[/right]

Or you could use the buttons (Left:, Center: and Right: align)

* Note that center must be spelt the American way for this to work.

The other text changing button, Preformatted () is for when texts you have (usually) copy and pasted from another source has indents etc. already built into it.


Fonts, Size and Colour

Again, these are slightly more complex than Bold etc., requiring you to (most of the time) to alter it even if you press the button.

For size you either type out size=Insert Number Herept inside the opening bracket, and /size in the closing bracket or push the button and alter as neccassry.

For font you either type out font=insert Font Here in the opening bracket and /font in the closing bracket or push the button.


Unfortunately I am not aware how to use the Flash () BBC nor the FTP Link () BBS, so you'll either have to find out from another source or hope someone posts how to.


Images, Links and Emails

To post direct images (like the one in my signature) you simply put an img in the square brackets and inbetween that put the direct link to where the image is stored on the web (there is no way to post images direct from your computer).

E.g.

Looks like:

Code: [Select]
[IMG]http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y269/jaik/UDNoise7copy.jpg[/IMG]
You can also alter the size of the image by adding in height=Insert Number Here width=Insert Number Here to the opening tab.

For example:



Looks like:

Code: [Select]
[IMG height=100 width=100]http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y269/jaik/UDNoise7copy.jpg[/IMG]

Emails are simple enough, just put email tabs around the email address or use the button.

URL Links are the same, but with url and the web address between them (or using the button), however, like images, there is a more advanced way of using them too.

If you want to have a certain word as the link, rather than the gibberish of the weblink itself them simply and an = to the url and put in the web link, closing the brackets behind, and putting the text next, then closing.

For example:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.40konline.com/index.php]40konline[/url]
Would look like: 40konline

Tables

This is undoubtedly the hardest of the BBC, as such I'm ggoiong  quote the person who I learnt it from, but be prepared to have to get used to it and to fail a few times first.

Originally Written By: Farseer Ulthrion

Tables: basics
First, you'll need to understand how a table is built. For each table, you'll need the beginning and ending YABBC-tag. You can use for this. It will print the following:
Code: [Select]
[table][/table]
The first tag (i.e. a tag is a part between '[' and ']', such as [/b]) is the start of the table, and the second tag is the end of the table. Everything that you want to put in the table should be between these two tags.

With the table tags alone, you don't have a complete table yet. You'll need to decide how many rows and how many columns you want.
I'll try to explain it using an example. Let's say that you want to make a table with a short description for each eldar aspect warrior. Knowing that there are 8 aspect warriors, you'll need 8 table rows. this means that we'll have to add 8 rows to the table.
Using the button, you'll print the following code:
Code: [Select]
[tr][/tr]This alone doesn't mean anything, so you'll have to place them between the table tags, like this:
Code: [Select]
[table][tr][/tr][/table]Finally, this is only one table row, and we needed 8 of them. The tags for the various table rows are placed next to eachother, like this:
Code: [Select]
[table][tr][/tr][tr][/tr][tr][/tr][tr][/tr][tr][/tr][tr][/tr][tr][/tr][tr][/tr][/table]As you see, this is very chaotic, so it's best to add a good layout, something like this:
Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr][/tr]
[tr][/tr]
[tr][/tr]
[tr][/tr]
[tr][/tr]
[tr][/tr]
[tr][/tr]
[tr][/tr]
[/table]

Now we have a table, and we have 8 rows in it. However, we still need to add columns. Each row must have the same number of columns, and in our example, we'll need 2 of them  (one for the name of the aspect, and one for the description). The button is for making columns. It prints:
Code: [Select]
[td][/td]Ín our example, we'll need 2 columns, so we use:
Code: [Select]
[td][/td][td][/td]However, we still need to place this in our original table. This piece of code needs to be placed between each of the table row tags, like this:
Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][/td][td][/td][/tr]
[/table]

Again, a better layout would be required if the table gets too chaotic:
EDIT: Don't put enters between the tr-tags, as this will change the layout of the table in strange ways.

Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

The actual text you want to have in the table should be written between the table data tags (i.e. [.td] and [./td]). Each space in table is called a cell, or table cell.
You should read the table data tags from left to right, top to bottom. This means that the first td-tag you see is for the top-left cell. The next td-tag will be of the cell just to the right of the previous one. If you see a tr-tag, then it's like pressing 'enter' on your keyboard. The next cell will  be one line (or row in the case of tables) below the previous one, and it starts agains at the left.

Now, an example can say more than 20 lines of text, so we'll continue to fill our table with the aspect warriors, and their descriptions.
The first aspect warrior will be the warp spider. The description will be that it's a warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry.

We look at the first table-row of our table, and see:
Code: [Select]
[tr]
[td]
[/td]
[td]
[/td]
[/tr]

The first td-tag we see is the leftmost cell in the table. This is where we want to have the name of the aspect. So, we'll put "Warp Spider" there. The second tr-tag is for the cell just right of the previous one (with the aspect's name in it). This is where we want to have the description of the warp spider, so we'll write "A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry".

The result is the following code:
Code: [Select]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[/tr]

The entire table now looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

In the same way we write the text for the other aspect warriors, giving us the following code:

Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Striking Scorpion[/td]
[td]Heavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Howling Banshee[/td]
[td]A quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Fire Dragons[/td]
[td]Lightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dire Avengers[/td]
[td]The most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Shining Spear[/td]
[td]A rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Swooping Hawks[/td]
[td]The fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dark Reaper[/td]
[td]Long range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

This gives the following result:

Warp SpiderA warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry
Striking ScorpionHeavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.
Howling BansheeA quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.
Fire DragonsLightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour
Dire AvengersThe most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round
Shining SpearA rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks
Swooping HawksThe fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away.
Dark ReaperLong range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry


So, our table is finished.
I hope that this is a bit clear, but if you still don't get it, don't worry too much. Tables are probably the most difficult part of the YABBC tags, so there is no shame in not understanding them :).

Tables: advanced
We now have the table with aspect warriors, however, it still looks a bit plain. Therefore, we are going to add some more detail to the table.

The first thing we could do, is to add a header text over each column. This is the same as making a new table row at the top of the table.

This gives us the following code:
Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Striking Scorpion[/td]
[td]Heavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Howling Banshee[/td]
[td]A quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Fire Dragons[/td]
[td]Lightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dire Avengers[/td]
[td]The most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Shining Spear[/td]
[td]A rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Swooping Hawks[/td]
[td]The fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dark Reaper[/td]
[td]Long range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

In the new first row, we'll write what's in the column below, like this:

Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td]Aspect[/td]
[td]Description[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Striking Scorpion[/td]
[td]Heavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Howling Banshee[/td]
[td]A quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Fire Dragons[/td]
[td]Lightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dire Avengers[/td]
[td]The most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Shining Spear[/td]
[td]A rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Swooping Hawks[/td]
[td]The fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dark Reaper[/td]
[td]Long range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

This unsurprisingly gives the following table:
AspectDescription
Warp SpiderA warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry
Striking ScorpionHeavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.
Howling BansheeA quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.

However, this would still look very basic and chaotic, we are going to start using nesting of tags (i.e. using a tag in the scope of another tag). This is essentailly the same as the combining of tags that GoldFish explained.

We'll start by making the new row appear in bold, so that it stands out from the rest. This means that the code for the first column would now now look like:
Code: [Select]
[tr]
[td][b]Aspect[/b][/td]
[td][b]Description[/b][/td]
[/tr]

Also, we want the second cell to center it's text, which means that the code becomes:

Code: [Select]
[tr]
[td][b]Aspect[/b][/td]
[td][b][center]Description[/center][/b][/td]
[/tr]

The code for the entire table is now:

Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][b]Aspect[/b][/td]
[td][b][center]Description[/center][/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Striking Scorpion[/td]
[td]Heavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Howling Banshee[/td]
[td]A quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Fire Dragons[/td]
[td]Lightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dire Avengers[/td]
[td]The most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Shining Spear[/td]
[td]A rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Swooping Hawks[/td]
[td]The fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away.[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Dark Reaper[/td]
[td]Long range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

Now, our table looks like this:
Aspect
Description
[/b]
Warp SpiderA warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry
Striking ScorpionHeavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.
Howling BansheeA quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.
Fire DragonsLightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour
Dire AvengersThe most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round
Shining SpearA rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks
Swooping HawksThe fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away.
Dark ReaperLong range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry

Now we have a nice table, but we still lack detail in our description of the aspect warriors. Therefor, we are going to add some pro's and con's for each aspect. The best way to make a list of things, is to use the list-buttom (). This is the same as GoldFish explained, except that we are going to place the list in the cell with the description of the aspect warriors.

For example, our previous table row for the warp spider looked like:

Code: [Select]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[/tr]

Now, we are going to add the list to the second cell, which gives us:

Code: [Select]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry
[B]Pro's:[/B][list][*] Fast
[*] Heavily armoured
[/list][B]Con's:[/B][list][*] Expensive
[*] Short ranged weapons
[*] Bad AP on the guns
[/list][/td]
[/tr]

Using this, the result of the table is the following:

Aspect
Description
[/b]
Warp SpiderA warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry
Pro's:
  • Fast
  • Heavily armoured
Con's:
  • Expensive
  • Short ranged weapons
  • Bad AP on the guns
Striking ScorpionHeavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.
Howling BansheeA quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.
Fire DragonsLightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour
Dire AvengersThe most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round
Shining SpearA rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks
Swooping HawksThe fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away.
Dark ReaperLong range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry

Now we'll do this for every aspect in the table, giving us the following code:

Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][b]Aspect[/b][/td]
[td][b][center]Description[/center][/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]

[B]Pro's:[/B][list][*] Fast

[B]Pro's:[/B][list][*] Fast

[B]Pro's:[/B][list][*] Extremely long range
[*] High Str, and # of shots
[*] Good AP
[/list][B]Con's:[/B][list][*] Expensive
[*] fragile
[/list][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

this code gives us the following end result:

Aspect
Description
[/b]
Warp SpiderA warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry
Pro's:
  • Fast
  • Heavily armoured
Con's:
  • Expensive
  • Short ranged weapons
  • Bad AP on the guns
Striking ScorpionHeavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.
Pro's:
  • Good Str and # of Attacks.
  • Heavily armoured
Con's:
  • No armour piecing ability
  • Slow
Howling BansheeA quick and deadly aspect, especially skilled at taking out armoured foes.
Pro's:
  • Power weapons!
  • Striking first.
Con's:
  • Fragile
  • Require a transport
Fire DragonsLightly armoured aspect that specialises in destroying anything with heavy armour
Pro's:
  • Can take out anything
  • meltabombs
Con's:
  • fragile
  • Short ranged weapons
Dire AvengersThe most common, and most versatile aspect. Capable of holding itself in combat, and good all-round
Pro's:
  • Cheap
  • Versatile
Con's:
  • Fragile
  • Short ranged weapons
Shining SpearA rare aspect, skilled at preforming lightning strikes. best used in hit-and-run style attacks
Pro's:
  • Fast
  • Heavily armoured
  • Good Str
Con's:
  • Very expensive
  • No armour piercing ability
Swooping HawksThe fastest aspect, capabale of reaching any enemy, no matter how far away
Pro's:
  • Fast
  • good range
Con's:
  • Expensive
  • Fragile
  • Bad AP on the guns
Dark ReaperLong range firepower aspect, specialised at taking out heavy infantry
Pro's:
  • Extremely long range
  • High Str, and # of shots
  • Good AP
Con's:
  • Expensive
  • fragile

As you see, this doesn't improve the readability of the table because the description part of the table has become too big. therefore, we are going to create more columns. One for the Pro's and one for the Con's of each aspect.

Again, we'll start by altering the code for the first aspect entry in our able:

Code: [Select]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[td][list][*] Fast
[*] Heavily armoured
[/list][/td]
[td][list][*] Expensive
[*] Short ranged weapons
[*] Bad AP on the guns
[/list][/td]
[/tr]

However, we can't display the result of this, as each table row needs the same number of columns. Therefore, we'll continue to apply these changes to each of the aspect entries, and the first row with the names.

The final code now looks like:

Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][b]Aspect[/b][/td]
[td][b][center]Description[/center][/b][/td]
[td][b]Pro's:[/b][/td]
[td][b]Con's:[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Warp Spider[/td]
[td]A warp-travelling, heavily armoured aspect skilled at taking out massed infantry[/td]
[td][list][*] Fast
[*] Heavily armoured
[/list][/td]
[td][list][*] Expensive

[/list][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Striking Scorpion[/td]
[td]Heavily armoured aspect specialised in close quarter fighting. Ideal to take on tougher enemies.[/td]
[td][list][*] Good Str and # of Attacks.

[td][list][*] No armour piecing ability
[*] Slow
[/list][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]

It's a lot of work, but I think that we can be quite pleased with the end result :).


Miscellaneous

Sub/superscript (/ add your text (in smaller writing) either at the bottom or top (sub=bottom, super=top). For example Hi There! and Hi There!.

It's simple to do this, you just use put in sub or sup in the square brackets, depending where you want the text.

Typewriter simply makes your text appear as if it had been written by a type writer. Just but tt in square brackets or push the button to use it.

Quote is the same, simply put quote in square brackets (or use the button) and put the text you want 'Quoted' inbetween.

For example:

Code: [Select]
[quote]Hi There![/quote]
Would look like:

Quote
Hi There!

You can also have who/what you quoted displayed by adding an = to the quote and inserting the name or the person/source.

For example:

Code: [Select]
[quote=Me]Hi There![/quote]
Would look like:

Quote from: Me
Hi There!

The final BBC is bullet points. They're similar, but not as complicated as tables. You start with a list opening tag to start it, and then, for each bullet point, put li tags inbetween the text you want to be bullet points. You must then use a list closing tag (with a /) to finish it.

For example:

Code: [Select]
[list]
[li]Boo[/li]
[li]Hoo[/li]
[/list]

Would look like:

  • Boo
  • Hoo

If you use the button then it will start you off with the opening and closing list and two opened and closed bullet points.


And finally, you may have noticed throughout this there have been lines seperating the sections, this is done with a simple hr in square brackets, there's no need to close it.

For example:

Code: [Select]
[hr]
Looks like:



Anyway, I hope I've helped some of you with this, and of course, all credit to the original writers.

The Flash () symbol adds "http://" to the beginning of what you put in the middle of the tags.  For example:

Code: [Select]
[flash=200,200]www.40konline.com[/flash]

Becomes:

http://www.40konline.com

Editing the numbers (200,200) seems to have no effect unless you delete them completely, in which case the whole thing doesn't work.

Hope this helps :)

Flash inserts flash-coded objects, and the numbers dictate its size.

That has nothing to do with the code of the board, but you do it through the gallery; go to the album where you want to add your picture, and on "gallery action" at the bottom you pick "add item".

The plan? It's pure Black Label. It's about violence and booze. That's all it is. There is no plan.
