Site Rules, Formatting Guides, Donate

Post by lejr »

Site Rules

List of things we'd like you to avoid
  • Being a Jackass : Administrators will decide this at their discretion
  • Spam : Please don't post junk
  • Personal attacks : Refrain from making any derogatory comments forwarded at the NU coaching staffs and or administration.
Just use common sense and enjoy!



Formatting Guides

Here's some formatting stuff for you to learn, because this isn't voy forums anymore, you can make it look nice.
So edit this post to see all the formatting stuff. Remember it's a tagging system like HTML. So in general you type stuff like this.

Code: Select all

[tagname] my text [/tagname]
Or if there is a value like size, or a url link

Code: Select all

[tagname=applicablevalue] my text [/tagname]
So Here is an example, when I type this into the edit box

Code: Select all

[size=85]Small Text[/size]
[size=150]Big Text[/size]
[list]
[*]One
[*]Two
[*]Three[/list]
[quote="usernamegoeshere"]This is a quote from somebody[/quote]
[url=http://www.test.com]Link Example[/url]
This is what it looks like when you submit it.

Small Text
Big Text
  • One
  • Two
  • Three
usernamegoeshere wrote:This is a quote from somebody
Link Example


So I hope that helps, go Here for the guide that comes with the forum.



How to post images

Images Already on The Internet

For example if there's an image online you would like to post, say from Google Images, you would first need the link to the image:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/76/Metro_Atlantic_Athletic_Conference_logo.svg/1920px-Metro_Atlantic_Athletic_Conference_logo.svg.png

To display it on the forum you need to use a little BBCode, it's very simple. In the edit box you can hit the Img button in the editor and it will produce two tags:

Code: Select all

[img][/img]
Then all you need to do is put the link inside these tags, the forum interprets it as an image, and displays it within your post.

So this code below when typed into the edit box:

Code: Select all

[img]https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/76/Metro_Atlantic_Athletic_Conference_logo.svg/1920px-Metro_Atlantic_Athletic_Conference_logo.svg.png[/img]
Produces this:
Image

Here's a template that you can copy paste for easy reference (replace:http://linktoimage with your image link)

Code: Select all

[img]http://linktoimage[/img]
Images Already on Your Computer

As described above you need an existing link to post an image. Luckily there are a few good free sites around that will host images for free. Here's my favorite:

http://imgur.com

imgur is a great service and they make it really easy by providing you with the code to insert the image. Here's a screenshot of what to copy after uploading:

And then you just paste that right into the edit section.
