The Code tags are for whenever you want to display lines of virtual code, and the Vimeo tags are just like the Youtube tags, except they're used for videos hosted at Vimeo.

Nice complied set up BroBuzz. :) But yeah, the Code ought to be added too.

Okay. Got out of laziness, and made all the "how to"s into codes. Hoped that helped explain everything better!

Glad you did this, it may help some people. Though I'm still curious as to what "List=" does. I don't see it listed in the first post.

Does "List" make those bullets?

BroBuzz

You can only make those bullets when your in a list.

Same here. I've messed around with it, and it does the same thing as "List". The only thing different is that, it won't make the list unless has a title after the =. But the title doesn't show up in the post.

okay lets see if I can explain list=



list= also coincides with , so you will need to use both.
The code for a normal bulleted list looks like this:

test1
test2
test3


and produces this:
[spoiler:1src1df0]
test1[/*:m:1src1df0]
test2[/*:m:1src1df0]
test3[/*:m:1src1df0][/spoiler:1src1df0]


however a list= code looks like this

test1
test2
test3


and produces this:
[spoiler:1src1df0]
test1[/*:m:1src1df0]
test2[/*:m:1src1df0]
test3[/*:m:1src1df0][/spoiler:1src1df0]

you can also use a letter for the list= like this:

test1
test2
test3


which would produce:
[spoiler:1src1df0]
test1[/*:m:1src1df0]
test2[/*:m:1src1df0]
test3[/*:m:1src1df0][/spoiler:1src1df0]

Thanks! I added "list=" to the list

EDIT: Oooo, new feature called "strike" [strike:xlwwyf4z]sounds lame[/strike:xlwwyf4z] sounds awesome! Added it to the list!

pikmin, did you read my mind? I was thinking to ask in the "Bugs and Suggestions" forum to add a strike feature a few days ago but never did! :lol:

No, I was thinking about suggesting it back in August, and thought that it would never happen and only few people would post on the thread. :P

And awesome guide BroBuzz! :D

Not many forums have it. Its not much of a "must have" for forums but a nice touch and can be useful sometimes.

Awesome Job [strike:ewrrp25x]Buizelbro[/strike:ewrrp25x] Brobuzz, just used this to make my signature link to windwaker

I may have skipped over it, but you should tell people how to link regular sentences into links, like the ones in my signature. You should also tell them how to make those link sentences coloured

Not to revive a dead thread (despite being sticky), but this could probably use an update now that the new forums are here :V
