The QB tag is automatically inserted when using the quote post function. The B tag is automatically inserted when using the bold function. As far as I know, they are completely interchangable in practice.

Posted by chukovsky (# 116) on :
 
Click on the button that says URL.

Up will come a box that says ENTER THE COMPLETE URL FOR THE LINK YOU WANT TO ADD.

You could, if you are mad, try typing in this space. This might work if it was a short link.

However you probably want to copy and paste the link from the other site. This means having another window open in your browser. If you can't do that, and can't work out how to copy and paste, er, I suggest you get one of your relatives (possibly great-grandchildren [Biased] ) to give you a lesson.

Make sure you have exactly one copy of the text http:// in the box as it will only work with one: not with zero or two.

Now click on OK. Then you'll get another box that says Now enter the title of the web page you wish to reference. You can put anything here. However if you are not linking to Ship of Fools it is not very sensible to type Ship of Fools.

Basically, click on the URL button and follow the instructions.

You don't need the "frameit" for a link to a board or thread which the management have already given a named URL. That'll put a frame inside a frame, and may result in problems with the board software deciding if you're logged in on the subframe.

Posted by Scot (# 2095) on :
 
I like to put the attribution inside the quote tags, but you can do it either way. The automated quote function puts it inside the quote but outside the bold, like this:

Of course, if you aren't bothering with bold, this format doesn't work.

I'm not normally one to shy away from picking on whiners, but I think your wee experiment might be a bit flawed, Kelly. Firstly, how often is an edit merely a one-character change? Secondly, you wouldn't be on a broadband connection, would you? Finally, as a Host you're not subject to flood control restrictions, which might play a part in editability.

Other than that, though, yeah - people should learn how to use Preview post.

1. Ok

2. Ok

3. Not everywhere! (do all the other hosts get all board hosting edit priviledges besides me?) [Eek!]

Still I kept it up for a pretty long time. I guess my work on radio has taught me how a minute can actually be an eternity if you use it right, and I wanted to share the love.

Also, I was just curious and was in the mood to screw around on the UBB thread. [Big Grin]

I didn't mean editing powers, just that you didn't have to wait 90 seconds between edits. If the flood protection applies to edits (and I'm not sure it does, because it only was instituted after I became a host), then it's possible that some shipmates might not be able to edit more than a couple times regardless of how fast they type.

Pants? Don't you mean Smudgie?

I don't get any problem with either site. Though, that could just mean I've not got my security settings hiked quite as high.
 
Posted by Smudgie (# 2716) on :
 
The security notice is no longer there. I didn't mean the one about "secure and nonsecure items.. do you wish to procede", I meant the one that had a big exclamation mark on it and said that the site's security clearance had either elapsed or been removed.

Sig test, had to crop it and take out too words to make it fit and couldn't put the author in - mutter, mutter.

Nevermind, it was Herbert Butterfield if anyone cares and the original quotation reads:

But the greatest menace to our civilization today is the conflict between giant organized systems of self-righteousness -- each system only too delighted to find that the other is wicked -- each only too glad that the sins give it the pretext for still deeper hatred and animosity.

Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
The code tags reproduce everything in them exactly as typed, so other UBB or HTML codes (eg Greek letters) aren't converted to what they represent. Very useful for explaining how to code something. But, also very dangerous as the software doesn't put in carriage returns etc to format the page to fit the window width.

The UBB software generally formats text to a certain extent. It'll ignore any leading spaces, and put in only one space if several are entered together. That makes putting together neatly organised stuff (for example something like a table) very difficult. It can be done. Small things in code tags if you don't want special characters. Or lots of non-breaking spaces (special character & nbsp ; ).

Thank you for fixing my post, Alan! And for the explanation about code tags.

Well, if it gets limboed you don't really need to save it as we'll keep hold of it [Biased]

To save a thread (especially a long one) the easiest way seems to be to open the "printer friendly view" (icon at bottom left of the thread) which generates a file without all the avatars and sigs. You can then save that using the "File->Save As..." menu option. Or, you can copy the whole thing into a text editor and save it there.

Not sure about how easy to follow the instructions will be ...

First, you need the address for the post you want to link to. You'll see a small icon like a piece of paper at the top left of each post (just left of the "Posted date/time" text). If you right click on that you'll get an option like "Copy shortcut", do that.

Next, to put that in your post. Click the "URL" button on the list of Instant UBB codes below the reply window. Paste the URL you've copied into the first popup window (ctrl-V, or right click in the window and select paste) - make sure you only have one "http://", the window includes one already. Then put some text in the second popup (eg: "this post"), and you'll have your link.

If you're logged in prior to posting then your signature will appear. If you log in at the same time as posting, it won't.

That's what happens. I don't really know why it does, just one of the little quirks in the sorftware.

ADMIN MODE

Demas, your signature is inaccurate and potentially confusing to others. As described in the Ship's FAQs, anyone wanting to reuse material from these boards needs to get the permission of both the poster and Ship of Fools. Although you are completely free to give your permission to reuse your posts, you cannot give the Ship's permission.

We would appreciate it if you would revise your sig accordingly.

Hi, Can anyone explain why I get a funny message instead of a smiley? javascript:void(0)
Smilejavascript:void(0)
Eek!
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
You get that message when you try and insert a smilie by clicking on the instant smilies below the reply window? I notice I get that appearing in my status bar when I hover the mouse over each smilie, but not in the reply window itself.

What browser and operating system are you using?

Posted by Crackers & Goat Cheese (# 8783) on :
 
I am sure, but the system seems not to be.
I signed off, and can't sign back in!
At least, not unless I sign in as Jeremiah Gutzywuk.
Is this the way it will always stay?

Don't you always have to sign in using the name you registered wtih? When I sign in, I still have to use the name I registered with.
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
You must use your user name to log in. When you registered, you had the option of using a different displayed name, and now you can change that again. Whatever your displayed name, always use your registered username to log in.
 
Posted by Crackers & Goat Cheese (# 8783) on :
 
Thanks, Pants.
It is all clear now.
I am very sure that it is time to retire the name Jeremiah Gutzywuk - it was a very bad biblical Hebrew pun, and not that easy for folks to spell.
Crackers & Goat Cheese sounds kinda funky to me; I think I will enjoy using it.
Thanks to Alan as well.

To be brutally honest, I don't quite see how the new name expresses less doubt, but perhaps I'm just not picking up on a cultural reference of some sort.

And you do realize you're probably going to be chopped down to 'garlick' in everyday usage?

On the other hand, welcome to the shrinking lowercase club. [Smile]

I don't use Firefox (yes, I'm lazy and use the browser that was installed on my PC when I got it) so I don't know the settings that might result in what you're experiencing. Perhaps someone who does use Firefox might be able to help.

It certainly looks like you're getting the message I see in the status window posted in the reply window, rather than the actual code for each smilie.

You could type each one by hand if you want to use smilies. The codes (with a space added so they don't just convert to smilies) are:

My guess is that you have a dodgy java module lurking in the depths of your PC, put there by a previous application - it is likely to be either Sun Java or the defunct Microsoft Virtual Machine.

You could try following the instructions here then reinstall Firefox as well. But all at your own risk, etc., etc.!

Now I can't do it because the URL pop-up goes to the upper left corner and covers the edit function. I can't get to the "paste" to click on it.

What am I doing wrong?

PMs are like little threads that only you and the person you're communicating with can see. If you have a PM there'll be a little flashing sign saying "You have 1 unread private message". Click on that message, or the "My profile" link towards the top right of the screen to access your PMs. You can choose to have an email sent containing the text of the PM, which is useful if you don't get into the Ship everyday. There's an option in your profile for that; follow the "My profile" link and select "View/Update Profile" to do that. But, make sure that if you have any sort of auto-reply function on your email (eg: out of office messages) that you disable this function on the boards before turning it on on your email, because those messages come to the board admins email - and they may contain the text of the PM, and at the very least we get fed up with emails we don't need to see.

I think the traditionalists are blinded by their ideology. Anyone who observes an RC community at prayer during Mass and watches the procession to Communion is witnessing the faith of the church in the Real Presence in action. The language we use to describe that Presence may be problematic, but I don't believe that AMOUNG ACTIVE PRACTICING CATHOLICS there is an issue about belief in the Real Presence. That's my observation and conclusion, but I'd like to hear from our resident RC folks on that.

First practice attempt.

You need to make sure you close the quote/qb tags at the end of each section you quote and reopen them again for the next section. So, you'll have something like

code:
[QUOTE]Originally posted by someone:
[QB]First bit of quote ...[/QB][/QUOTE]
A response
[QUOTE][QB]Second bit of quote ...[/QB][/QUOTE]
Further response

etc


 
Posted by Comper's Child (# 10580) on :
 
Does that mean I "create" those quote marks..? as I didn't see them save at the beginning and end of the post.
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
Yes, you need to create the other tags, by typing them in yourself. Just to clarify, as before - but with the new tags you'll need to put in in lowercase (they're not case sensitive so the lower case will work too), with the automatically generated ones in upper case.

code:
[QUOTE]Originally posted by someone:

The closing tags always have a / before them. And, my post contained CODE tags enclosing the UBB so you could see it. It's probably best to quote another post to practise on because of that.

Please note that in the following, there are extra spaces in the [ quote ] codes so that they show up here; IRL the brackets would be snuggled up against the code word. [Razz]

They come in nested pairs: for every [ quote ] at the beginning of something, there must be a [ /quote ] at the end.

As a beginning exercise, delete any and all [ qb ] and [ /qb ] when quoting and simply concentrate on keeping track of the [ quote ]s.

It also helps to work first on a simple two paragraph quote, rather than dealing with multiple quotes, nested quotes, or quotes including other code (such as urls).

You should still have a row of numbers above the letter keys; they're the same thing as the ones on the number pad to the right.

A. The sig won't show up if you're not logged in (you can log in as you post, but for some reason that removes your sig).

B. There's an entry in the FAQs (currently not available) about the logged in but not logged in thing. The standard things to check for are:

The latter, from a certain ECUSA parish on the Left Coast, is particularly over the top. Be sure to note the suggested ceremonial to accompany the hated "Nicene" (in scare quotes) Creed.

To start with, you need them on some webspace somewhere. You've almost certainly got some available with your ISP, and they should have some information on how to create webpages to display them. Alternatively, there are several sites that will host pictures for you. I use fotopic.net, I know other people here use other similar sites.

In this context "ETA" means "Edited To Add". Yes, it's a later thought added in. If you need to edit a post then click on the icon above it that looks like a bit of paper with a pencil. Note, you can only edit your own posts, and then only within two minutes.

Edited in comments often get put in square brackets (or a comment to explain the edit is). This seems to be a convention picked up from the hosts who will do that to clarify what they've done and seperate their comment from the rest of the post.

Thanks. For some reason, I often have a brainfreeze that means I don't pick up mistakes despite copious use of preview post, and often only see them later when re-reading. I was hoping it was possible to go back in and correct them (I'm used to this on another board, which inserts a comment about time edited etc). Guess I'll just live with it [Biased]

How do you post a link to a particular post by a Shipmate? Outside links I'm OK on, but I can't sus out the internal ones!
 
Posted by Ann (# 94) on :
 
If you look at the top of their post (the line with the pretty pictures for sending PMs etc.) the first picture (to the left of the word "Posted" looks like a piece of paper with a corner folded down (alledgedly). If you right-click on it (assuming Windows), on the pop-up menu will be "Copy Link Location" or "Copy Shortcut". This will put the keystrokes of the URL into the clipboard.

Go to the thread you are replying in and click "Add Reply", write your post as far as where you want to put the link and click the URL button. Paste (Ctrl-V or Right-Click and Paste) and the link will appear in the little box. Click the button and add the word(s) you want to be in red (for a link) and click the button again. The post will be inserted into your text (as external links are).

I'd check using Preview Post and following the link if I were you.

This will bring up a new window without the left side bar, which is the only way of linking to a post within a thread. There's a *fancy way of linking to a thread with the frame round it, but it will only take you to the top of that page.

[* You put "http://ship-of-fools.com/UBB/frameit.htm?" in front of the link you have to paste (it involves a bit of juggling with a Notepad file so you can copy the link and the text - I keep the text in a file so I can refer to it when needed)]

You need to use the URL button below the reply window. If you copy the address of the site you want to link to into your clipboard, paste it into the first pop-up you get then type some description text into the second. And, voila! One proper link.

Question: Is there any way of indenting text on certain lines, rather than it always starting on the left hand margin?

Tab just moves away from the text box, and leading spaces seem to get removed by the software.

For most purposes, the list function works. But I'm working on a creed, and refuse to write ones with bullet points - it will look like it's escaped from Powerpoint!

Enter.

Hello. I am new.

I am not sure whether this is the right thread, but it said "practice thread" (no idea what "UBB" is, sorry, the page did not enlighten me either). I wanted to try out posting b4 going for a real one.
Or is there some playground thread for newbies to bond a bit before their first day at school? (I shall not go to Hell first thing in the morning, I have gathered that much).

I have read the board rules but the links for "trolling" and "fire-baiting" did not work, so I have no clue what they are. But I understand they are evil, base and mean and presumably punishable by burning at the stake? Probably they are something I am doing right now? Or about to do next?

Anyway, this was just to say hello.

And if trolling and fire-baiting are something easily done by mistake rather than intent, I should be glad to be enlightened before I am flamed.

Thank you.

Welcome aboard by the way.
 
Posted by Scot (# 2095) on :
 
Hi, Menantes. There is a thread in All Saints just for the purpose of introducing yourself around (click here). That's a good place to start.

UBB is the code that our software uses for making quotes, italics, bold text, hyperlinks, and so on. This thread is just a place to try things out before using them in "real" posts. It's also a good place to ask for help with those sorts of things.

Trolling and flamebaiting are forms of disruptive behavior often seen on internet bulletin boards. Loosely speaking, they both involve making obnoxious and inflammatory posts for the purpose of upsetting people and provoking conflict. These are intentional behaviors, so you don't need to worry about doing them accidentally.

Welcome aboard!

Scot
 
Posted by Menantes (# 11925) on :
 
Thank you to Callan and Scot.

This time the links to flame-baiter and trolls worked. They ARE bad boys (and girls presumably), are they not. Will abstain.

Am off to the All Saints Welcome Thread now.

Ta ta, cheerio.

How does one create the little TM to put after important proper names like Real Life (little TM)? (i.e. the first symbol Jahlove practises 4 or 5 posts up from this one)?
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
It's one of a large number of special characters which are inserted with code of the form &xxxx; where xxxx is replaced by either a number or word denoting the symbol. For ™ replace 'xxxx' with 'trade' ... there are plenty of sites on the net that will give you a full list of available characters (just search on "HTML special characters").

(this is supposed to be a quote, for practice)
Im trying to do a quote in bold without having to type the lot into the little box which says 'enter the text you want to make bold' . I cant 'paste' the bold text into the box as the box covers the edit on the toolbar. So what is happening is that when I post and want to quote somebody it's always coming out in non bold text which is not very helpful in differentiating what somebody else is saying and what I'm saying. As above quote
 
Posted by Smudgie (# 2716) on :
 
You can quote quite simply by using the code. You type the word QUOTE in square brackets before the text you want to quote, then /QUOTE in square brackets afterwards. The square brackets are the ones that look like this [ ] on your keyboard.

The other alternative is to click on the quote icon in the row of little pictures which will appear above my post here. The quote icon is the one that looks like quotation marks "" (Quite appropriate really!) and then the whole post will appear ready to quote. You can see there, too, how the coding tags work.

I don't know whether I should really be posting this in Hell. But having been directed to this thread by jlg in Ecclesiantics, to practise doing 'nested quotes' I find 22 pages mostly of one-line geekish posts of dubious relevance.
Where in all this do I find instructions on quoting 'nested quotes'?
Why, if I copy someone else's post in order to reply to it in context, does the system seemingly lose all the quote attributions?
Life's too short!

Why can't there be, rather than a thread like this, a handy 'dos and donts' page on technicalities?

You were sent here to practice doing nested quotes. You will notice that this is the UBB practice thread. That's what all of those people were doing in their one-line geekish posts. If you are having trouble getting your quotes to come out right, this is a thread where you can practice with UBB code, or ask for help.
quote:

There are no instructions for doing nested quotes. They work the same as non-nested quotes. For each "layer", you need an opening [quote ]tag and a closing [/quote ] tag. When you are composing your post, it should look like the following.

code:
[QUOTE]This is what you said. 
[QUOTE]This is what she said.[/QUOTE]
This is what you said about what she said.[/QUOTE]
And this is what I have to say about it all.

Then, when you post it, it will look like the following.

----- Example -----

quote:
This is what you said.
quote:
This is what she said.
This is what you said about what she said.
And this is what I have to say about it all.

You were sent here to practice doing nested quotes. You will notice that this is the UBB practice thread. That's what all of those people were doing in their one-line geekish posts. If you are having trouble getting your quotes to come out right, this is a thread where you can practice with UBB code, or ask for help.

Where in all this do I find instructions on quoting 'nested quotes'?
There are no instructions for doing nested quotes. They work the same as non-nested quotes. For each "layer", you need an opening [quote ]tag and a closing [/quote ] tag. When you are composing your post, it should look like the following.

code:
[QUOTE]This is what you said. 
[QUOTE]This is what she said.[/QUOTE]
This is what you said about what she said.[/QUOTE]
And this is what I have to say about it all.

Then, when you post it, it will look like the following.

----- Example -----

quote:
This is what you said.
quote:
This is what she said.
This is what you said about what she said.
And this is what I have to say about it all.

Thanks very much Scot, and apologies for the whining! It must be the weather. But I still can't understand why the codes don't copy along with the text.

Scot,

Thank you for making the rain go away before I had to take the bins out. I knew it was worthwhile being your friend. [Axe murder]

Posted by Autenrieth Road (# 10509) on :
 
Overly soberly -- the quotes problem arises when you start interspersing things among the quoted bits, or not copying the entire multi-nested quote for requoting. Then the balanced tags often get unbalanced, and you have to manually edit them back into balance.

On the weather front: Scot can't make rain actually disappear though -- he just transported it here.

Posted by Smudgie (# 2716) on :
 
In the first link on your first post you had http: twice which stopped it working. You'll find that when you click on the URL button and it makes a window for you to put the URL in, the http: is already in place. It catches me out sometimes.

I guess the third link in your first post is a made-up page...

Your second post worked fine, but I think you left a space between the = and the http: which is why it didn't look quite right on the page.

Whenever I do a link, I use preview post to check it out first and then look carefully to see where I went wrong, which I quite often do! [Biased]
 
Posted by grushi (# 11938) on :
 
Cheers. Yep, figured out the http x 2 thing.

Sadly I don't have preview post. I'm in a non-Western country on a mobile phone connection, so I have to do without luxuries like pics and javascript. I'm looking forward to moaning about this one day to my grandkids. "fibre optic connection? You kids don't know you're born. When I were a lad..."

As for the second post, it's still not working, unless you're seeing something I'm not. I don't want the url to appear within the text but I can't work out what's wrong with the code. Any ideas?
 
Posted by Estragon (# 1899) on :
 
At a guess, it might be the punctuation in the URL itself. Try running it through tiny url first.

I myself asked this a few pages ago and was asked to click on a link like this. Unlike me, you are probably sensible enough to actually read it and learn, rather than go "yes, like that, how do you do it?"

Note that every level of quoting needs to be bracketed by "[ quote ][ qb] ... [ /qb ][ /quote ]" (except without the spaces), and that if you use the "" button above the post you're quoting it automatically puts in the "Originally posted by Poster:" text.

The "" button will do it for you if you want to quote a whole post, but if you only want to quote part of a post it's worth knowing (or at least having a nodding acquaintance with) the code as well as which button to click on to do it automatically!

Right, I think I've got that. Tricky blighters, these codes. But I think I have their measure now (I sense a pride/fall moment coming along as I type... hope not).
This explanation would be a very useful addition to the 'How to use UBB code' page, if/when it is updated.

One of the unwritten rules is that if you slag someone else's code, you are almost certain to screw up your own code in the process.

Not so. What is required is the bracketed quote and /quote tags. The bolding (bracketed qb and /qb tags) is entirely a matter of canned style.

Does anyone know why the URL tag doesn't translate correctly into a link when wrapping the Brigid's cross link?

My theory is it's to do with the apostrophe, whether disguised with a % code or not. Is that it? Any other tricks to slither it through, short of using a tinyurl?

Almost certainly the apostrophe. I'd either use the URL raw (ie: just post it in) as it's not too long and won't cause page format problems. Or, tinyurl it. Sometimes it's just not worth the hassle of figuring out how to do it better.

Pearl B4 Swine, it's also possible to type Greek letters directly rather than having to spell out the letters' HTML codes. I can't remember if the Beginners Greek thread in Keryg has that info somewhere in it or not. I'll work on fishing it out and putting it someplace easily found, unless someone else gets to it first.

This damn clock stuff always confuses me. 0 offset in profile. 14:44 here in Maine, on DST. Would be 13:44 here in Maine if we hadn't jumped to DST early.

[And here is an edit time stamp, to baffle me more.]

The key is to check that everytime you have opened the [QUOTE&][QB&] tags that
there are closing [/QB&][/QUOTE&] tags at the end of it. What causes a mess is
when a square bracket or backslash somewhere is missing or someone has forgotten
to close the tags.


If you practice it on the practice thread you'll soon get the hang of it and
other people will help you.

Can anyone tell me if this is a UBB bug, or if I've coded it wrong? I'd be much obliged.
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
You mention "the bullet is a bug", is that the problem? The UBB code you've used is LIST - LIST always puts in some form of identifier for each item, by default the bullets. You can also have items numbered or alphabetised (start the tags with LIST=1 or LIST=A to do that .... look at the UBB below by using the reply with quotes feature)
  1. this is a numbered list
  2. with numbers rather than bullets
  3. just one more item so it's a decent length list
  1. this is an alphabetised list
  2. with letters rather than bullets
  3. just one more item so it's a decent length list
  1. this is another alphabetised list
  2. with lower case letters rather than bullets
  3. just one more item so it's a decent length list

Alan Cresswell, the source for that post looked something like this:

[ list]
USA (The bullet is a UBB bug)
[ *]All Saints' Chapel at Sewanee
[ *]The Chapel of St. Mary the Virgin at the University of Georgia
<snip>
Canada
[ *]St. Michael and All Angels, Winnipeg
UK
[ *]S. Andrew's, Clifton Rd. in Worthing
[ *]Ss. Saviour and Mary's Cotham, Bristol UK
[ *]All Saints Margaret Street
<snip>
AUS & Oceania
[ *]The Parish of All Trains, Canberra
[ *]Far St. Flip's, Brisbane
[ *]All Saints Wickham Terrace in Brisbane
[ *]Practically every congregation in the Lands of Mama Thomas
[ /list]

which produces this:
So, the first line after the list tag gets a bullet even if it is not preceded with an asterisk, while several other lines within the list tags (e.g., Canada, UK, and <snip>) that are preceded with an asterisk get no bullet. I stumbled across a way to place unbulleted headings into a list that seems to work everywhere in the list except at its top.

This inconsistency doesn't put a hole in my boat, but I was wondering if I was missing something.

I guess that's just the way things are.
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
Ah, I see what you mean. What's happening is that for subsequent non-bulleted items the code is being interpreted as "this is part of the same list item, so no bullet is needed, it just happens to be on a new line". Whereas, first time round it's taking it as a new list item (I didn't realise it would do that without the [ *] tag, you learn something new everyday. To do a list like you just did I'd probably break it into several lists with a header outside the list tags. You can always use a few non-breaking spaces (& nbsp; - but without the space) to indent the header if you wished it to look different from the rest of the text of the post.

How about this?

    USA
    Canada
 
Posted by The Silent Acolyte (# 1158) on :
 
& nbsp;

Ah, you learn something everyday. It's good to be alive, if even in very small ways.

Use several lists, though, that's the ticket.

Thank you.

Go to the post you want to link to. Above the text of the post there's a line of icons, to the left of that the date and time it was posted, and to the left of that a small icon that loos a bit like a bit of paper with the top right corner folded over. In IE with Windows if you right click on that you'll get a menu including "Copy Shortcut" - this will put the URL into your clipboard.

Go to the thread you want to post on, and start your reply. When you want to include the link, click the URL instant UBB code button and paste the contents of the clipboard into that as per any other URL.

Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
The UBB software supports nested quotes. As long as the post you're quoting uses the UBB quote function, a reply with quote (using the "" icon) will keep the first quote in place correctly formatted. If you want to cut down the quote, just make sure you leave all the UBB tags in place.

If you want to quote multiple posts, the easiest way is to use a text editor (eg: NotePad or Word) to compose your post. For each post you want to quote click reply with quote and copy the whole window you get into the text editor. Then when you have the quotes you want in a single file, copy it all back to a reply window here.

Remember, you can always use the "reply with quotes" function to see how someone has coded their post. There'll be the "originally posted by" bit at top with a QUOTE and QB tag, and a corresponding set of closing tags at the bottom - remove that and you'll have exactly what they put in and you can see where the code is.

Help

Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
The easiest way is to use the Instant UBB code button below the window you type your reply in. The one you want is labelled "URL".

First, find what you want to link to and get a copy of the address (aka URL). Either open the page, select the contents of your address bar and copy it (in Windows, right click the mouse and select 'copy' - there's also a keyboard shortcut, press <ctrl><c>. There'll be something similar for other operating systems). Or, find a link to it (eg: the little icon to link to a post as I described a few days ago on this thread) and copy the address from there (in Windows that'll be right click the mouse and select "Copy shortcut").

Then go to the thread you want to post on and start a reply. Where you want to put in a link select the URL Instant code button. There'll be two pop-up windows. The first will ask for the address, paste the address you have in your clipboard there (right click "Paste", or <ctrl><V>); the window already has a "http:" bit there - make sure you overwrite that, two of them at the front of an address won't work. The second window asks for the text you want displayed, type whatever's appropriate there. And, hey presto, there's a properly formatted link in your post.

There's a collection of "instant smilies" below the reply window. Just click on which of those you want and it'll insert the relevant code in your post. If you're using InternetExplorer it'll go in at the cursor position, otherwise at the end of the post.

There's a limit of 8 smilies per post.

The 'http' bit needs to be preceded by 'url=', all within the [ ] with the alternate text between the opening and closing tags. You can use the instant UBB URL button to generate the code you want in a reply window and check with Preview Post, then copy the code into your sig.

M. Because your signature wasn't working right and causing page formating problems on every thread you've posted on I took the liberty of fixing it for you.

The big problem was that the long URL for the link to Amazon didn't work in the UBB software - I replaced it with a tinyURL which works.
 
Posted by M. (# 3291) on :
 
Oh good grief, Alan, I'm sorry, I didn't realise it was causing problems. I had no idea that the length of a URL would make any difference.

Thank you for formatting it properly.

Apologies again.

M.
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
It depends upon which browser people use. Basically, a URL is a single 'word' (it won't have any spaces in it). Some browsers will try and break that word across lines if possible (ie: if the 'word' contains a hyphen, which some URLs do), others won't. If the word can't be broken across lines it forces the entire window wider to accomodate it - first it'll squeeze the space where the avatar is placed, and if that doesn't give it enough room it'll force a horizontal scroll bar on the bottom of the browser window. This is sometimes refered to as "broken scroll lock". Whether any particular person sees it depends upon their browser and screen size.

If someone has to keep scrolling back and forth because they can't see both ends of a line of text then that makes the boards almost impossible to read. Naturally in such circumstances we're keen to get things sorted out asap so that people can read the boards. If the problem is with a sig then the page format problem appears all over the boards.
 
Posted by M. (# 3291) on :
 
Having re-read my post above, it comes over as a bit peeved rather than apologetic - it really wasn't meant to, I think I was in a rush on my way out to work.

I am genuinely sorry for causing you problems/extra work and very grateful to you for fixing it.

M.

(PS, I'd often wondered what 'broken scroll lock' meant)

Yes, you can put in URLs, italics, bold into sigs using UBB (though the instant buttons don't work so you'll need to code by hand or copy and paste from a reply window). No quotes, lists or code though.

Moo explained how to quote messages and I think I can do that, but I wonder why the posts in a thread do not seem to be numbered, so that, instead of quoting the text, I could just refer to 'post number so-and-so'. Is there an explanation for this somewhere?

****
I hesitate to ask the next question, because I have a strong feeling that I shall not understand the answer! However, it is always interesting to learn something new. How do I turn an http... address into a word or phrase?

***
I'm going to try a sig in a minute...
 
Posted by Smudgie (# 2716) on :
 
SusanDoris, the answer to your second question is very straightforward.

Below the reply box you will see nine buttons under the heading of instant UBB code. Click on the one that says URL.

A box will open, into which you cut and paste the "http address" you wish to link to. (Beware - sometimes when you cut and paste it you end up with http repeated - you will need to delete one if that happens, together with the colon and // or your link won't work)

When you have clicked on OK a second box will appear. Into this you type the words or phrases which you wish to appear in your post.

Click OK for that, and then use preview post to make sure your link works.

Make sure the http address you use isn't too long for the board to handle. If it is you will need to make it shorter by using TinyURL*.

If you want to be really clever, you can learn the code for doing that kind of link. A good way to do it is to pretend you are going to quote from a post someone else has made previously where they have posted a link. You can then see the coding that they have used and can use that as a template for how to do it. Then, instead of quoting their post, simply close your reply box.
But to be honest, why keep a dog and bark yourself - the instant UBB code buttons are far easier to use.

*TinyURL is a website that simply shortens very long http addresses so that you can put them in a link without causing problems. You can find it by googling for it and it's incredibly straightforward to use.
 
Posted by SusanDoris (# 12618) on :
 
I have looked at the FAQs but cannot find where to click to put the sig (quoted below). I hope I can excuse myself slightly here, as having to use voice and magnification means that I do miss things on a page sometimes.


Help here would be much appreciated! (I hope this thread is in fact the right place to put this.)

I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
 
Posted by SusanDoris (# 12618) on :

Many thanks - sounds really straightforward so I certainly think I'll be able to do that and will have a practice later.
I'm off to a meeting (local Humanist group) in Bournemouth this afternoon.

Posted by Smudgie (# 2716) on :
 
A sig is nice and easy too.
Up on the right hand side of your screen is the link to "My Profile". Click on that.

In the upper of the two boxes that appear, you'll see "view/update profile", again as a link. Click on that.

Scroll right down to the bottom of the first box that appears, the one where you can put all your profile information if you wish, and the last section there is where you type in your signature. Remember to keep it less than four lines long. Then you simply need to click on the "update" button to put it in place.

You will not see it on your posts until you post again, so many people like to come to this thread and post a "sig test" just to make sure it has worked OK.

Looking forward to seeing what you choose [Biased]
 
Posted by SusanDoris (# 12618) on :
 
Smudgie

Thank you again - this is a test to see if the sig comes up!
I have 'stolen' it from a poster on the GHMB, but I did check in the 'find a quotation' page (from Google) that it is a 'proper' quote and not one said poster made up himself.

I went to the local Humanist group meeting (I think it is important to support them) but I found the speaker incomprehensible! He spoke for three-quarters of an hour on land values, taxes etc but without any beginning or end, so that no aim/theme was discernible. There was going to be a Q and A session after tea break, so I left, knowing that I would not be interested in any questions either!

OK, cross fingers, click on 'add reply' button....

That's why we have this thread. No need to feel silly when everyone else here is also figuring things out.

If you don't believe me, look up a few posts and notice that it took me over six years (most of those as a host) and umpteen thousands of posts before I finally understood that multiple posts *do* update your post-count.

And nobody (trust me, nobody) reads this thread except to practice, ask questions, or provide assistance; it's simply too boring even for a troll.

It doesn't like the % in the url ... I'd suggest using tinyurl.com, or similar, to create a link without odd characters that the UBB software will accept.

OK, here goes. link to a dumb song somebody mentioned in a Heaven thread .

so that for example,in my text instead of seeing the link, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20465878/, you see a phrase such as "here" or "Oprah story", etc.?

the UBB instructions don't say. Thanks.

You need to copy the entire bit of your post with the links, url tags and all, into the space for your sig. If it works here, it'll work in your sig (provided the url addresses aren't so long that the whole thing exceeds the maximimum number of characters for a sig, in which case I't recommend tinyurl, which is what I've used for the links in my sig for exactly that reason).

Posted by mountainsnowtiger (# 11152) on :
 
I think the ironic bit is probably the fact that "we're so happy" despite everything going wrong. Lyrics are from a song which may not have crossed the pond - by a band called the Wombats and getting a fair amount of UK radio play - it's kind of upbeat and groovy, the sort of thing I dance around to in my flat if I'm in a good mood and the curtains are drawn so nobody can see me looking very silly [Big Grin]

The UBB software doesn't like the % signs in the URL. The only solution I know is to use tinyurl to create an address without the characters that UBB doesn't like (it's not just the %, other characters can create the same fault).

It's always interesting to see what people are practising, isn't it? Changing a link into blue words is something I must have a go at. I have been learning how to highlight a title and using Ctrl+K to make a hyperlink, but can't do it the other way round yet.

Anyway, this is a test to see what my avatar looks like here. Simon has very kindly set it up for me. I hasten to add that the feet in the shoes are not mine!

Just above each post there's a line of icons. The one on the right, a bit like a set of speach marks, is "reply with quote". It'll open a reply window with the whole of the post quoted with the 'Originally posted by:' bit and bold. If quoting anything lengthy it's better if you delete anything you're not specifically responding to.

Hey, wow! Thanks, Alan Cresswell! [Smile]

Really appreciate your answer to my problem, as I was reading through the thread "Answers to questions you didn't need to know", in the hope of posting my question at the end. (Thought I'd better read the thread first!) But there's 15 pages in that thread, and after reading for a while I was only up to page 3...LOL. So I thought it'd be ages before I could find out!

Gonna try and quote myself again now...

Help, how do I turn a url in the sig line into words without the "instant UBB code" you can use when composing the message text??

Sorry to be so dense, everyone else seems perfectly able to do it. And I did look at the pointers on UBB code, but still couldn't figure it out.
 
Posted by Joyeux (# 3851) on :
 
Let's Go For a Walk!

Mechtilde - try what I'm doing... a two-step process. Use the UBB buttons (whatever you call them, next to the smilies) and figure out what you want to do. Once the test post is up, click as though you're going to quote yourself, select the text for all of the [URL=......], copy, then click "My Profile" and paste that into your sig.

Or, you could start a test post, use the URL buttons, select the [URL=...] stuff, then click on My Profile, all without posting.

ETA - I just tried the first method, and we'll see if it works!

Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
Above each post there's a serious of icons. The one on the right, which looks like a set of speech marks is "reply with quote". It'll open a reply window that includes a quote of the post you're responding to, complete with the "originally posted by" bit. Simply delete any of the original text you don't want to respond to (leaving the UBB tags in square parentheses).

I'd like to put a link to another website in my sig, but being a complete Dumbo I don't know how. I was hoping that I could just use the "Instant UBB URL" link that is avalable when posting, but that doesn't seem to be an option on the Profile page.

Can anyone cleverer than me tell me how I can do this? Ta muchly!
 
Posted by Alan Cresswell (# 31) on :
 
You can do the link (along with the rest of the text you want in your sig) in a standard post, by replying on this thread for example, and then copy the whole lot onto your clipboard. That can then be pasted into the relevant part of your profile. That gives you access to the Instant UBB buttons.

You don't even need to hit "Add reply" to the post where you put it in, though the use of preview post wouldn't be a bad idea.

Okay. Where are they? ("Evangelical -Catholicism"
being Lutheranism's answer to Anglo-Catholicism).

So far I know...

In the ELCA, there's:

*St Peter's, Manhattan
*Mount Olive, Minneapolis
*Trinity, Shelton CT

In the LCMS, there's:

*Zion, Detroit (obviously). I'm trying to finagle an invitation for a weekend at my father's friend's place in Windsor just to make my report pilgrimage.
*Redeemer, Fort Wayne, which I take it has a healthy presence of seminarians.
*St Paul, Hamel, IL

And didn't Young Fogey tell us about a place (ELCA, I think) in New York that used to be more or less English Missal?

I'm a little sad that the "full faith" places seem to be LCMS, and even sadder that I don't know of any EC parishes in Canadian Lutheranism.

Control freak. Now you do understand, don't you, that the way this joke works is that you repeat what I say, but you add "who" at the end, therefore turning what I say into a question. In this case, your response should be "Control freak who?" Now do you think you can do that for me? Because I can explain it again if you're not sure or you missed something...

Ok, I got this on Google. So, basically
  1. Type list=1, enclosed with brackets
  2. Type your list, beginning each entry with an asterisk enclosed with brackets.
  3. At the end of your list, type /list enclosed with brackets.

And that is that!

After the list.

Posted by davelarge (# 186) on :
 
Apparently, an enumerated list can also be labelled by lower case letters by the tag {list=a} (replacing the braces by brackets):
  1. item 1
  2. item 2
and upper case letters with the tag {list=A}:
  1. item 1
  2. item 2

Genevieve, I'd try linking your URL in the body of a post on this thread. But before you post it copy the UBB code that you have in the composition box (or whatever you call this box you type in). Then paste it in your sig in your profile. I think that would work.

The address for a single post is hidden behind a little icon that looks like a small piece of paper to the top left of each post (just infront of the "Posted [date]"). In Windows, right click on this icon and copy the URL into your clipboard then paste into a post as normal (I know there's something different with Mac which doesn't have a right mouse button).
