Concerning some of the new BBCodes...
« on: December 23, 2007, 09:43:27 PM »
There are a few BBCodes that we have created that needs to be noted on how to use them.
Youtube:
Take a regular youtube URL, such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev5GqkCtYjg. Take the text after the v= , and paste it between the tags. The code here would be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev5GqkCtYjg
USE ONLY IN THE VIDEO THREAD (OR ANY CONTENT/ GAME DISCUSSION THREAD), NOT IN SIGS.
MP3:
Take the URL of your song and paste it between the tags. Be sure to delete the .mp3 at the end.
USE IN THE MUSIC TOPIC OR THE ARTS BOARD. SIGS MAY NOT BE USED FOR EMBEDS.
That is all.

Examples:

Code: [Select]
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B97P0e7ejYw&feature=user[/youtube]
NO: &feature=user messes it up, and all you use if that beyond the "v=".
Code: [Select]
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B97P0e7ejYw[/youtube]
NO: Although the "&" and everythign following it is cancelled out, it still won't work.
Code: [Select]
[youtube]B97P0e7ejYw[/youtube]
YES: ONLY use this part, after the =v and before the & if there is one present.


Code: [Select]
[mp3]www2.b3ta.com/mp3/I'm%20Not%20Gay.mp3[/mp3]
NO: you need an "http://" or it will not work. whether it is on ftp, a subdomain, www2, or www, it is irrelevant. you just need to include http:// (or ftp:// in the case of ftp) Plus, the .mp3 is still included in the link.
Code: [Select]
[mp3]http://www2.b3ta.com/mp3/I'm%20Not%20Gay.mp3[/mp3]
NO: HTTP:// is included, but the .mp3 is still present.
Code: [Select]
[mp3]http://www2.b3ta.com/mp3/I'm%20Not%20Gay[/mp3]
YES: The BBCode includes the .mp3 tag at the end for you, for security reasons.
Concerning mp3, you're URL may not neccasarily be directly to an mp3. for instance, new grounds audio links (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/download/113173) will work even though they are not directly an MP3.
Think of it like this: if right click > save as tells you to save an mp3, it will work.




REMEMBER: When using MP3, you may need to DOUBLE CLICK the player before it will become active.

Another note for the MP3 code:
It is only allowed in the arts board. The code that stops autoplay failed, and some members can here it anyway. With that combined with multiple instances, it can really hurt someone's ears. That means it is not allowed in sigs either.

Trust me, the marquee would get really overly complex really quick if I add anything else.

Well the MP3 code was (originally) one I posted, and I fixed it by using embed instead.

And MP3 should not be used in sigs just because it can cause lag. one here and there in posts is fine, but not in sigs please.

Some of them, yes. Some, I changed or edited. (By the way, JJ forwarded the codes to me. I looked them over, and only two did I change up.)
Also, MP3 is no longer to be put in sigs, and topics with the tag must have a proper warning with it (either [music] or [MP3] or [embed])

Hey JM, apparently tables don't like enter keys used, and generate a huge amount of unusable space above the table. Is there any way to fix that?

Additionally

Tables fuck up.
Restrict usage of row tags to within table and likewise for cell;
or remove it


and MP3 doens't fuck up.
JJ just don't like it >>

I have no idea why it is doing that...
I used a basic <table border=1> tag, so...

EDIT:
Ehh, there isn't much use in a table tag, it messes up, etc.
I'm still debating wether or not to nuke the MP3 code. It has been noted that it can be used to embed things other than MP3's, and possibly viruses. The buke it side is currently winning though.
