Post by VampiricPadraig on Tue Aug 17, 2010 10:15 pm

As you are in Wiffy you will be using different tools such as...different colours...SIZES!!!...and Spoilers.

This is a handy Tutorial on how to use tools when posting on Wiffy

We shall start with the basics.

1. Starting on the top line is the basic *B* *I* *U* *S*

B = Bold. To type in bold writing type
Code:
[b] TEXT HERE [/b]

This will give you TEXT HERE

I = Italics. To type in italics type
Code:
 [i] TEXT HERE [/i]

This will give you TEXT HERE

U = Underline. To type in underline type
Code:
 [u] TEXT HERE [/u]

This will give you TEXT HERE

S = Strike. To type with a strike type
Code:
 [strike] TEXT HERE [/strike]

This will give you TEXT HERE

2. Next is the "Align Text" Buttons

Left

To make your text align to the left type

Code:
[left] This text should be aligned to the left [/left]
This will align your text to the left like so

Center

To make your text align to the center type

Code:
[center] This text should be in the center [/center]
This will center your text like so

Right

To make your text align to the right type


Code:
[right] This text should be on the right [/right]

This will align your text to the right

3. Adding Color to the text

So you want to add a bit of colour to your posts...its really simple...All you do is type

Code:
 [color="COLOR HERE"] TEXT HERE [/color]

***TO SEE THE LIST OF COLORS, CLICK THIS BUTTON***


for red...type
Code:
[color=red] ENTER TEXT HERE[/color]
and you will get ENTER TEXT HERE

4. Text Size
To change the size of the text type
Code:
[size=SIZE OF WRITING] ENTER TEXT HERE [/size]

eg.
HUGE TEXT

5. Quoting

So someone posts something either here or on another site..you can quote people.
To do this type
Code:
[quote="NAME"] (Include Quotation Marks) TEXT HERE[/quote]
eg.
VampiricPadraig wrote: Welcome to Wiffy
or if you wanna quote WITHOUT a name type
Code:
[quote]TEXT HERE[/quote]
eg.
Welcome to Wiffy

6. Linking

This is the fun part of the site..linking

If you have pictures or a website to share from a site or a photo sharing service (eg. PhotoBucket, ImageShack etc) then this is how

To link a site
Code:
 [url]http://wiffy.forumotion.com[/url]
or
[url=http://wiffy.forumotion.com]Wiffy[/url]

for a image type

Code:
[img]LINK TO PHOTO[/img]

for a YouTube Video type

Code:
[youtube]YOUTUBE LINK[/youtube]

7. Miscellaneous

To add "Spoilers" (Part of a story from a game, film, or book) type
Code:
[spoiler]ENTER TEXT HERE[/spoiler]

It will look like this
*Click on the box*
Spoiler:
You have uncovered a Spoiler

To add code like I have done in this tutorial type
Code:
[code]ENTER CODE HERE[/code]

eg.
Code:
 THIS IS CODE

And that is pretty much it...If I have left something out...please comment...
