gallery_26_6416_72.gif List, Bullet
[list][*]{content}[/*][*]{content}[/*][*]{content}[/*][/list]
This BBCode allows you to present information in an unordered (bullet) list.
[list][*]List item[/*][*]List item[/*][*]List item[/*][/list]
  • List item
  • List item
  • List item
Note that lists are automatically indented. Also, while you may enter a list as a single line as I've done above, the board software will move the opening and closing tags and each of the item strings to separate lines.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif Member

[member={option}]

This BBCode allows you to provide a link to a member's profile. A preview of the member's profile will open up as a dialog box when the viewer hovers the mouse over the link. Clicking on the link will open the linked member's profile.

[member=Brother Tyler]

Brother Tyler

This link method uses the member's display name. You can simply copy a member's display name from their profile or post information and copy it into the BBCode (unless you know the member's display name from memory).

This BBCode will not work when a member's display name uses any of the following:

  • ends with a special character (e.g., -Max-) (though it does work if a member's display name starts with a special character (e.g., *Furyou Miko)).
  • ends with a number (e.g., DeathKnight2000)

gallery_26_6416_72.gif New Caption Left
[newcaptionleft={option}]{content}[/newcaptionleft]
This BBCode creates a captioned box that will appear on the left side of the display area. The content area will be in the standard skin color while the caption area at the bottom will be red in color. The other elements of the text (starting with those that come immediately following the caption code) will flow around the caption box.

Important: If you enter strings of text in either the caption (option) or content areas, you must enter hard returns, otherwise the caption box will stretch across the full width of the display area. You'll have to experiment if you want specific results.

As with other BBCodes, advanced mastery of this BBCode enables you to combine other BBCodes for specific results.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif Post Link
[post={option}]{content}[/post]
This BBCode allows a member to go directly to a post, with that post appearing at the top of the browser page.

To use this, you must copy the URL of a post. For example, the post above is post #29* in this topic (see the top right corner). Simply click on the post number and a dialog box will appear showing the post URL. Copy that URL and then remove everything except the actual post number which appears after the equal sign at the end of the URL. That number goes into the BBCode. Each post here at the Bolter & Chainsword has a unique number specifically for this purpose. The "content" portion of the BBCode is simply whatever you want the link to appear as in the browser. Note that post links can go to posts in any topic here at the Bolter & Chainsword, not just the topic in which the link is included.
Check out the [post=4005697]previous post[/post] in this topic.
Check out the previous post in this topic.

If a post/topic has a lot of images, the initial time you follow a link may not work correctly as those images load and shift the page around. Subsequent clicks on the link (as long as the browsing information remains in memory) will work.

Members that can see invisible posts (e.g., moderators, administrators) will see different numbers as the invisible posts will be included.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif Quote
[quote]{content}[/quote]
This BBCode allows you to enter a quote that will appear in a special box.
[quote]E tu, Brute?[/quote]

E tu, Brute?

More advanced usages of this can include other information in the quote box header. This is most often achieved by clicking on the "Quote" or "MultiQuote" buttons that appear at the bottom of a post, with the board software automatically entering the relevant information.
[quote name="Brother Tyler" post="3964280" timestamp="1425101722"]This topic provides information on how to use all of the BBCodes available at the Bolter & Chainsword.[/quote]

This topic provides information on how to use all of the BBCodes available at the Bolter & Chainsword.

More enterprising members can change that information:

Something that matters to the discussion (I just made this up, obviously).

Note that even if you enter the entire quote BBCode string on one line as I've done above, the board software will automatically move the opening and closing tags and the content to separate lines.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif SM Indent
[smindent={option}]{content}[/smindent]
This BBCode functions similarly to the Indent BBCode, but instead of creating just an indented left margin, the SM Indent BBCode creates indented left, right, top, and bottom margins (effectively creating a gutter around the content).
 
You define the amount of space created, in em, in the "Option" portion, whereas the content that will be indented is in the "Content" portion. Since the units are em, the actual amount of space indented is very small compared to the Indent BBCode - so you'll have to enter a larger number (I recommend between 20 and 50) in order to achieve a noticeable effect while not creating too much empty space. In the example below, I've used 30 as my option.

Entering too high of an option number will create significant blank space. While this often doesn't matter for the left and right sides, it often is too much at the top and bottom. You'll have to experiment in order to find an amount of space that works for you.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif Subscript Text
[sub]{content}[/sub]
This BBCode allows you to show subscript text. Subscripted text appears below the baseline of the regular text and is often used in formulae, mathematical expressions, and to indicate systems of counting (i.e., decimal, binary, hexadecimal, etc.).
Lorem ipsum[sub]5[/sub] dolor
Lorem ipsum5 dolor

Note that subscript text can be combined with other BBCodes for advanced effects, including hyperlinking.

Table

Table open/close tags:
[table={option}]{content}[/table]
Description

Table header tags:
[th]{content}[/th]
These establish the table headers and are essential for identifying which column cells in other rows fall beneath. The {content} is the name of each column.

Table row tags:
[tr]{content}[/tr]
These must appear at the beginning and end of each row of the table. The {content} indicates all of the information for the cells that compose the row.

Table cell tags:
[td={option}]{content}[/td]
Each cell of a row must have this information. The {option} identifies which row the cell falls beneath and must exactly match that column from the table header row. The {content} is the actual text that appears within the cell. Note that you can use BBCodes to further modify the content.
 
[table={option}][th][td={option}]{content}[/td][/th][tr][td={option}]{content}[/td][/tr][tr][td={option}]{content}[/td][/tr][tr][td={option}]{content}[/td][/tr][/table]
For tables to work correctly, they must be entered as one continuous string - you can't enter hard returns after table rows or things will break.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif Topic Link
[topic={option}]{content}[/topic]
This BBCode allows you to embed a direct link to a topic here at the Bolter & Chainsword, using that topic's number. This allows you to include a link without using a lengthy URL. Clicking on the link will take the viewer to the first page of the topic.

You can find a topic's number by looking at the URL. For example, the Rules of the Bolter & Chainsword can be found at:
http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/22-rules-of-the-bc/
So the topic number is 22.
[topic=22]Rules of the B&C[/topic]
Rules of the B&C

The topic BBCode is preferable to the URL BBCode when linking to a topic here at the B&C. The reason for this is that a topic title can change, which will change the URL, whereas the topic number won't change - it's a key field in the database. Topic titles can change for any number of reasons. Sometimes members edit their topic titles; sometimes mods/admins will edit a topic title (for example, I'll correct spelling in topic titles). Using the topic number (i.e., the topic BBCode) future-proofs a topic for internal linking.

For example, if we ever get the urge to change the title of the B&C's rules topic to "Rules of the Bolter & Chainsword" instead of the current title, any place where the URL BBCode is used will become obsolete (and will return and error message). Any place where the topic BBCode is used, however, will remain valid.

If you desire to take viewers to a specific post in a topic, you should use the Post Link BBCode, instead.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif URL
[url={option}]{content}[/url]
This BBCode allows you to enter a hyperlink to some other place on the internet, whether here at the B&C or elsewhere. The software will automatically apply emphasis so that members recognize the link as active content that can be clicked on (though you can apply additional BBCodes to change this emphasis).

The "option" is where the URL is entered, whereas the "content" is what will appear in the browser.
[url=http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/forum/18-forum-rules/]The Rules of the Bolter & Chainsword[/url]
The Rules of the Bolter & Chainsword

If you simply want to provide the URL and have the URL appear in the browser, you can skip the BBCode and the board software will recognize the URL and turn it into a hyperlink. Often, however, the board software truncates the content that appears in the browser.

Alternately, you can use content other than text. In the following example, I've used an image, combining the image BBCode with the URL BBCode so that clicking on the image will take you to the URL.

This guide has been created in order to help members to understand and better use the various BBCodes available.

Note that this is a work in progress. Each of the codes whose entry has been completed is marked with a green arrow, both in the index and in the entry itself. Others remain to be finished. At this point, I have completed the majority of the entries for the most commonly used BBCodes, so I'm making this visible to everyone.

As I complete additional entries, those will be marked, too.

In time, I'll expand entries with "best practices" and advanced usages, as appropriate.

Note that while I've used many of these BBCodes, there are some that I've never used, so those may take awhile as I figure out how they work. If you are familiar with any of these, or if you think some clarification is needed on any, feel free to post a reply here.

Okay, at this point I've gotten all of the commonly used BBCodes completed. The only one remaining to be done is the Tables BBCode, which is complex (and for which I plan on providing a few common templates such as unit entries, vehicle entries, etc.).

What I'd like feedback on is whether or not the format of each BBCode entry works, or if I should change them.

Right now you get the BBCode name, followed by the basic code (as it appears in the admin table), followed by a brief description, followed by an example (in code, then as the code appears in a post), then notes, if applicable. I've also added some examples of alternate uses in a few instances.

It occurred to me that I might take a slightly more technical/clinical approach, changing the description portion to provide a "Why you would use this BBCode" description (to provide some context) followed by a "How to use this BBCode" explanation. The example, notes, and alternatives would follow. Alternately, members might have better ideas.

Something else I've considered is providing links to other BBCodes in the same "family" at the bottom. For example, all three of the "alignment" BBCodes would link to each other. This would, hopefully, improve navigability, allowing members to click from each BBCode instead of having to scroll or go back to the index each time.

Also, I'm more than happy to provide more examples, especially for those BBCodes that have advanced applications. If you have any suggestions, feel free to provide them here (though I generally want to keep the examples as small as possible).

Similarly, if any of the current examples aren't clear enough, please let me know so that I can improve upon them. Also, if anything I've said sounds like a fifth grader wrote it (no offense to any fifth graders out there msn-wink.gif ), let me know where I can make improvements.

Details on why codes could be useful would be good, I'd also do a quick "common codes" summary of the most useful ones and their application such as floats, images etc.

gallery_26_6416_72.gif Hidden Content
[hidden]enter hidden content here[/hidden]
The hidden content tag allows you to insert a large amount of content, but to hide that content unless the viewer wants to see it. This can be done to hide large text entries, images, etc., in a manner similar to the spoiler tag, but without the implications of a "spoiler."
[hidden]This content will not appear unless the "Show" button is clicked. When the content appears, the "Show" button will change to a "Hide" button. The content will disappear when the "Hide" button is clicked.[/hidden]
Hidden Content

A common use for this BBCode is to hide large/many images. This is a great way to help members viewing the site on a mobile browser and with limited bandwidth.

Hidden Content


Note that this BBCode functions identically to the spoiler BBCode, the only difference being the label (i.e., "Hidden Content" vice "Spoiler")

Some of you may have noticed the recent index of colors and hexadecimal codes (here). While that index is still a work in progress and will be expanded, I figured it would be useful and provided links to it from the BBCode entries that use colors and hexadecimal coding for the colors.
