BB Code??

Postby Jodie » Fri Apr 04, 2008 11:08 pm

I can't get BBcode to work - it just puts in the whole code and not the picture and stuff..

Any suggestions - I just know this is going to be something really simple that I have missed :oops:

I've never been able to figure that out either. I just host pics and stuff from Photobucket and use the IMG code they provide. Hope thats helpful.

In the games thread - I have done some blogthings and when I choose the code to carry what the results are (Which of Santas reindeer are you? - those things), and then I hit submit, all that comes up is the code, not the actual result.

It used to work on the old forum - I am thinking that I have not got permission for something for it not to work.

Hope that helps McDLT

I know now - that's actually HTML and with the new version of phpbb they recommend not using HTML because that can cause issues (ie make spam and hacking easier), so they didn't include it as an option.

When I use those blogthings I copied the code and then removed and replaced the HTML with BBC.

Hope this answers your question.

:cry: I still don't know what I am doing???

I just cannot work it out.

If I copy and paste, I just get the whole code up on the screen - no results or pics (I know you can read the results in the HTML but that is not what I wanted)...

How do you change it from HTML to BBCode?

Thanks in advance (Maybe :D )

Here's an example which might help:

HTML Code:

Code: Select all
<table width=350 align=center border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2><tr><td bgcolor="#EEEEEE" align=center>
<font face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif" style='color:black; font-size: 14pt;'>
<strong>Your Christmas Stocking Will Be Filled With Little Wrapped Presents</strong>
</font></td></tr>
<tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<center><img src="http://www.blogthingsimages.com/whatwillbeinyourchristmasstockingquiz/little-wrapped-presents.jpg" height="100" width="100"></center>
<font color="#000000">
You've made Santa a very happy fellow this year.<br />
Don't worry - what happens at the North Pole stays at the North Pole!
</font></td></tr></table>
<div align="center"><a href="http://www.blogthings.com/whatwillbeinyourchristmasstockingquiz/">What Will Be In Your Christmas Stocking?</a></div>

Which looks like this:

<table width=350 align=center border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2><tr><td bgcolor="#EEEEEE" align=center>
<font face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif" style='color:black; font-size: 14pt;'>
<strong>Your Christmas Stocking Will Be Filled With Little Wrapped Presents</strong>
</font></td></tr>
<tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<center><img src="http://www.blogthingsimages.com/whatwillbeinyourchristmasstockingquiz/little-wrapped-presents.jpg" height="100" width="100"></center>
<font color="#000000">
You've made Santa a very happy fellow this year.<br />
Don't worry - what happens at the North Pole stays at the North Pole!
</font></td></tr></table>
<div align="center"><a href="http://www.blogthings.com/whatwillbeinyourchristmasstockingquiz/">What Will Be In Your Christmas Stocking?</a></div>

Here's my change to BBC:

Code: Select all
Your Christmas Stocking Will Be Filled With Little Wrapped Presents

[img]http://www.blogthingsimages.com/whatwillbeinyourchristmasstockingquiz/little-wrapped-presents.jpg[/img]

You've made Santa a very happy fellow this year.

How do you change it to BBCode?

Or do you have to understand how to write HTML (so you can pull out the bits you need to change) and BBCode?

Thanks for you patience

I do just pull out all HTML bits and change it to BBC. Basically you remove or change anything in "< >".

So if you want to post an image, just change the
Code: Select all
<img src="http://....
to
Code: Select all
[img]http://...[/img]


Feel free to test anything out in this thread.

So far everything works for me - why do you want to use the BB Code: Oh, well, have fun learning it!

BBC is what the forum uses - it doesn't use HTML. BBC is the tags like
