Forum Tricks - It's magic innit?

Recommended Posts

There have been some example recently where someone has asked how to do nifty tricks in the forums. Rather than having them spread out across lots of posts, it might be worth consolidating them in one thread.

These are inside spoilers because they are really Cult Secrets, so don't go passing them along to just anybody ...

How to put text in a spoiler.

OK, so what you do is use tags, specifically the spoiler tag. Within square brackets [] you put the word spoiler and then in another set of square brackets you put /spoiler.

So, misspelling so as not to have a spoiler, you put [spoileroo]This is a spoileroo[/spoileroo], but using spoiler instead of spoileroo.

There may well be a tag that means "Treat anything inside as text, in which case, I could have used that instead, but not sure what it is. In HTML Code does the trick and that seems to work, so ...

[spoiler]This is a spoileroo[/spoiler]

How to insert links to other threads on BRP Central.

To get the link without the summary text, copy the URL of the thread in question, then click on the little chain icon, the 5th icon from the left, paste the link into the section marked link and you get this: 

https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/8203-crowdsourced-old-characters-and-1610s-family-history/. If you want some pretty text instead of the link, then type something in the Link text field, to get this: Crowdsourced Old Characters and 1610s Family History.

To get the link with the summary text, just copy the link and paste it into your post:

Oh, how did I do that one?

 

put a shift key number 2 or the @ before the user name that you wish to send a flag to alerting them of a need to looksee. This being a powerful rune spell, use with care, The summoned entity might be pissed at being interrupted and summoned frivolously!

Cheers
