NWR Forums "How To" Guide For Posting

A guide to show users how to format their post.
*Lots of these things can be performed by a simple button click or drop down menu when not using the quick post option*

Now lets start off with some of the simple and/or most used tags on the forum.

-Use the tag [­b]
-when you want to stop the bolding of text simply use the tag [­/b]

How to Quote someones post:
-The easiest way is to click the word quote in the upper right hand corner of the post.
that will take you to an edit window where you will see lots of buttons and options for editing your post.
From here you can chose which parts of the post to quote.
~or~
-Use the tag [­quote]

*If you have a pic that keeps being resized by the forum, but need to stay it's original size to be viewed properly:
-Use the tag <­img src=X>
-then replace "X" with the web address of the image you want to post.
-i.e. <i­mg src=http://i49.tinypic.com/2z8vvbt.jpg>

this will allow the full image to be posted at original size and will utilize a scroll bar to allow you to see the entire image with out breaking the forum width.
Actual example in use: The 3rd Party Wall of Shame

*Recommended sites for image upload:
www.tinypic.com / www.photobucket.com / http://imgur.com/ *

-i.e. [u­rl]www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?[/url]

*You can also make your link say whatever you want it to.*

-then input the web address of the site you want to link to in place of the "X".
-i.e. [u­rl=www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?]
-Then type in what you want the link to read as
-i.e. Nintendo World Report Forums
-follow that with the tag [/url]
-i.e. [u­­rl­=www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?]Nintendo World Report Forums[/url]
Nintendo World Report Forums


How to change the Size of your text:
-Use the tag [s­ize=Xpt]
-then change X to the size you want your text to be (10pt is the forum standard text size).

How to change the Color of your text:
-Use the tag [col­or=X]
-Then change "X" to any supported color. (there is a drop down menu, but more colors are supported than are listed)
-When you want to end the coloring of your text, use the tag [/color]
-i.e. [­color=red]Colored[/color] [col­or=blue]text[/color] [color=gree­n]is[/color] [co­lor=purple]colorful[/color]
Colored text is colorful


How to use Abbreviations/Acronyms in your post:
This is a good way to "hide" text behind a word or sentence and can be used to caption a picture
-Use the tag [abbr=X] or [acronym=X]
-Then replace "X" with the text you want to hide.
-i.e. [abbr=You'll never find this text because its hidden]
now put the sentence, word or image* you want to post after your tag
i.e. X marks the spot!
follow that with the tag  or [/abbr][/acronym] depending on which one you started with
i.e. [abbr=You'll never find this text because its hidden]X marks the spot![/abbr]
X marks the spot!
or for an image;
[abbr=You'll never find this text because its hidden][img]http://i49.tinypic.com/2z8vvbt.jpg[/img][/abbr]



That's all I got for now. Let me know if there are any mistakes or anything else that needs to be added.
I also plan on adding using smileys (I think i have the complete list) and more complex things like bullet point, [code] and other such things.

Any comments or suggestion are welcome.

That's why I took the time to make it.
People have been asking lots of questions on how do you do this and how do you do that.

Glad it helped you out.

Well then why do people still keep asking? I'm just putting it where everyone can see it.

also the src img code isn't in the Help section either.
But I was just listing everything that I could think of off the top of my head.

It's also redundant because almost every single one of these now has a button assigned to it if someone clicks on the reply button.  But, like BNM said, it seems like a lot of posters--including some who have been around for a long time and even some staff members--don't know how to do a lot of this stuff.

This should definitely be stickied.
Agreed.

Also, BNM, you forgot abbreviations.

I got tired of typing. That was one of the next ones to go up, I just wanted to post the ones that are most commonly used and the ones that have been asked about most recently.

I'll put it up next though.

I will always have to copy/paste your Abbr. fix back into that if I ever edit it again.
The forum software always like to screw with my post and move tags around. It's very annoying to have to go back and fix all sorts of stuff everytime I edit.

I think it's an issue with FF 3.6 but I'm not sure.

Want to quickly post a pic but want to skip all the other step?

I got a fix for you.

http://imgur.com/tools/

Quote from: firefox
This addon lets you upload any image found on the internet with a simple right button mouse click. Just right click an image and select "upload image on imgur". The URL of the newly uploaded image is automatically copied in the clipboard and a new tab opens to the imgur page.
Quote from: Chrome
After the extension is installed you will see a little imgur icon appearing on the right side of the chrome address bar if you are viewing a imgur compatible image. A click on the imgur icon will upload it to imgur and the new imgur link will be directly put in your clipboard.
Quote from: Internet Explorer
A simple program that allows you to right click on a file and send it to   Imgur. It supports multiple files can copy the links to your clipboard.   Windows only.
more support at the link

But basically
right-click, :save to imgur:, right-click, :paste:

This may not go here, but I was wondering how to give + and - karma.

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.
Just a bundle of cuteness and fierceness.

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.

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:

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'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.
