The "BBcodes" are coded specifically for this platform that make a graphic effect or a link and are associated with a specific button in the post editing page.

Templates (copy and paste) Customized buttons BBcodes without button
  • imgfull: display a full-size image
  • st (strikethrought text style)

imgfloat

Post by Emiliano » 19/03/2022, 12:10

I've developed a simple method to float the vertical (or little) images to the right of the post.

1. Click on the button "imgfloat".
1.jpg

2. Upload your image.
2.jpg

3. Write the caption of the pic in the box "Image caption".
Warning: links and writing styles (small or bold) do not work here. It is all in italics because it's possible to decide only one style between normal or Italic for all the captions in the forum.
3.jpg

4. Write your text and click on Submit.
Warning: while for full-wide images you need two paragraph lines to separate the image from the follow text, here you only need one from the previous, and two from the one before if you want to put a second or third image in the post.
4.jpg

Notes:
  1. it is possible to put the caption on all the attachments present in the forum.
  2. If you want to "un-float" the image and display it horizontally, just delete the bbcode ([ imgfloat ] [ /imgfloat ])

To insert one image on the top of the other (one or more) in a one single column, just place one attachment after another, before closing the code.

Code: Select all

[imgfloat]attachment=1]Dolgin Larry 2.jpg[/attachment][attachment=0]Dolgin Larry.jpg[/attachment][/imgfloat]

Index

Post by Emiliano » 20/03/2022, 11:52

In topics with very long biographies and filmographies, it is useful to insert an index to go immediately with a click to the paragraph you are looking for (example: Filmography to check). Just copy and paste the following code and modify it to your liking. Each number corresponds to a link.
Note: leave 2 empty lines of paragraph from the text that precedes it and that which follows.

Code: Select all

[index][list]
[*][goto=1]Mini-bio[/goto]
[*][goto=2]Filmography[/goto]
[*][goto=3]Titles to check[/goto]
[/list][/index]
For last, to place the references, insert this code in the previous empty line of the title of the paragraph. Each number (1, 2, 3) will correspond to the link above.

Code: Select all

[anchor=1][/anchor]

Example of where to put [ index ]

Code: Select all

[imgfloat][attachment=0]Suzy Kendall portrait.jpg[/attachment][/imgfloat]

[b]Suzy Kendall[/b] (pseudonym of Frieda Harrison) was a British actress


[index][list]
[*][goto=1]Mini-bio[/goto]

[/list][/index]


[anchor=1][/anchor]
[title]Mini-bio[/title]

Example of where to put [ anchor ]

Code: Select all

[iurl] v1.1

Post by Emiliano » 24/03/2022, 8:23

BBCode iurl (Internal Url): must be used only for links to the forum topics. Instead of using the normal Url, to save you from writing the string "viewtopic.php?t=" each time.

Code: Select all

[iurl=][/iurl]
v1.1: you no longer need to write the equal sign in the brackets. Just write the topic number to obtain a link.

You can find the topic number either in the address bar or by moving the cursor over the topic title. In this case it's 51.
iurl.jpg

Example:

Code: Select all

[iurl=51]John Benedy[/iurl]
Result: John Benedy

Note: for external sites use as always the other URL bbcode. Also there, no longer need to write the equal sign.

Code: Select all

[url=www.wikipedia.org]Wikipedia[/url]

[note] & [source]

Post by Emiliano » 24/03/2022, 8:32

Note should be applied if you use notes, quotes or references, to use the superscript style.

Code: Select all

[note][/note]
Source creates a paragraph for note references.

Code: Select all

[source][/source]
Example

Code: Select all

He was born in Milan on July 23, 1980.[note]1[/note]
His film was Cosa avete fatto a Solange? (1972).[note]2[/note]
Result
He was born in Milan on July 23, 1980.[1]
His film was Cosa avete fatto a Solange? (1972).[2]

Now (2.0) the notes are clickable and linked to a reference paragraph that must be placed at the bottom of the page (not before the filmography), called Notes and sources:

Example

Code: Select all

...Quintana (1969) ANICA with no role.


[source]
1. According to [url=http://www.anica.it/]Anica.it[/url].
2. Dante Lazzaro. [i]Annuario degli attori 1974[/i].
[/source]
Note: two paragraph lines to separate the code from the previous text.

Result
...Quintana (1969) ANICA with no role.

Notes and sources
1. According to Anica.it.
2. Dante Lazzaro. Annuario degli attori 1974.


Notes and sources already made: Camille Keaton, Annabella Incontrera, Carla Brait.
