You have to hit a certain amount of post before you are given the privilege of altering other members Karma.
Yeah I think it is 1,000 posts. Once you get that amount you click on applaud or smite to give + and - to someone. You can only give 1 applaud or smite for one person a hour. Meaning that say I applaud you I can't applaud you again for another hour. I can give other people applauds and smites as well.

How to enable AutoPager on the NWR Forums

1. Download the AutoPager extension for your browser [Chrome | Firefox]

2. Goto Options -> Search Rules Online

3. Enter NintendoWorldReport into the URL bar and then click on Search



4. I have made 2 rules for NWR
a) Is for thread pages
- will continually load the pages while reading the thread. Only problem is that it will not stop loading pages... even after you've reached the end of the thread.

b) Is for Sub Forum Index
-Will load all the pages of threads off of the main forum Index.
*This is the one I recommend you use*

5. Click Install of the Rule you choose to use.


6. Now you can endlessly scroll through all the topics and/or post

Embedded Youtube Videos
« Reply #29 on: February 04, 2012, 02:08:34 PM »
How to Embed YouTube Videos into your Post

There is a new button in your Advanced Edit window. A YouTube Button.
You paste your link, highlight it and then click the button.


But I'm going to show you how to do it manually too.


1. Paste your YouTube Link
ex. www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8TewO_zg84&list=UUxtthERX6qmEOdR3O8IF0_A&index=61&feature=plcp

2. At the beginning of your link, add the tag [youtube]
at the end of your link add the tag [/youtube]
ex. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8TewO_zg84&list=UUxtthERX6qmEOdR3O8IF0_A&index=61&feature=plcp[/youtube]

3. Hit post and your youtube link will now be embedded as a video in the forum
ex. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8TewO_zg84&list=UUxtthERX6qmEOdR3O8IF0_A&index=61&feature=plcp[/youtube]

there are some limitations though. Notice how the above video did not work properly.
You might have to edit your link if it includes an & sign
In the above link if I remove the 2nd & sign and everything after it, it works fine
ex.

delete "&list=UUxtthERX6qmEOdR3O8IF0_A&index=61&feature=plcp" from the end of the link
(that is everything starting at the "&" sign going down to the end of the link)

vvvv.youtube.com/watch?v=y8TewO_zg84&list=UUxtthERX6qmEOdR3O8IF0_A&index=61&feature=plcp

and now
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8TewO_zg84&list=UUxtthERX6qmEOdR3O8IF0_A[/youtube]
becomes



This means that if you embed a video you will not be able to do this YouTube trick: start it at a specific point in a YouTube video.. It will have to start from the beginning.

Just wanted to add that you can't link a youtube video if it says "HTTPS:"

get rid of the "S" on the end so it reads "HTTP:"

also if you copy/paste a link that was embedded somewhere else, get rid of everything in the link inbetween the "?" and the "v"

How to Avoid Hidden Forum Code Errors in your post
when using the advanced editor

In the advanced editor window, hit that RED A all the way to the right just above the text box, and it will reveal all the code that was hidden before.



The common types of errors this corrects and/or lets you fix:
- Unintended Double Spacing

- Text shrinking when you start back spacing

- Completely forked up formating when copy/pasting text from a different site.
ie.

There are 2 ways to post. Quick Reply, which shows up at the bottom of the page when you read post.
and Advanced Editor, which is what you get when you click "Preview" in your Quick Reply, or when you click "Modify" in one of your post.

In Quick Reply you have to manually enter in any forum code, so there likely won't be too many errors (except for maybe copy/paste from other sites, but I'm not sure). Advanced Editor is where the real problems happen.

Embedding still isn't working. I followed your directions to the T.

Hell, I even copy and pasted an embed you did and it didn't work.


Nevermind. I had to remove formatting apparently.

I'm not sure that we can embed tweets. I think you need Admin access to do certain code,

I would just use the (right click) Imgur add-on in your Firefox browser* to save a screenshot of the tweet (you can even crop it before saving) and it will give you the link with the img tag already around it.


*Chrome version doesn't have the option to screenshot for some reason.

But thanks!

I'll make it as easy as I can. I found a screeshot to Imgur extension for Chrome:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/imgur-extension-by-metron/ehoopddfhgaehhmphfcooacjdpmbjlao?utm_source=gmail

Right click anywhere on the tweet (other than the pic), then select Imgur > Capture Area

(rt click > Imgur > capture area) then select the area and it automatically uploads and gives you a link
(rt click > Imgur > capture view/page) automatically uploads whats in view in your browser window and gives you the new link. It will capture it at the size of your current window, so you can collapse the window to the size you want the pic... or to crop out extra stuff and it will only upload what's in view.

it's very quick and very simple.

this took roughly 3 seconds:

How do you read spoiler text if browsing on a phone? iOS if that matters. Thanks.

I would say press down on the word like your going to select text to copy/paste, and then select the spoilered area to reveal the spoilered text.

But I don't have an iPhone, so i can't confirm that's the way to do it on that device. But it works that way on an Android.

Thanks. I had tried that previously, but my phone kept trying to define what I highlighted. I'll give it another go and be more patient with it.

What I've done is just hit the quote button for the post with spoilered text. The text will show up in the reply box with the spoiler tags around it.

Thanks, I'll try that. It appears to be this site in particular that my phone doesn't like. The "press down" technique works for me elsewhere. I know NWR is supported by volunteers, so I'm not complaining, just posting for edification purposes.

If you get exhausted by unsightly and life-draining walls of text, Adblock can do the trick. Before and after:
