TOTJO - A little Forum Guide

To make things easier for everyone we have decided to write a little guide on how to use TOTJO's forums & the Shoutbox.

Posting in the shoutbox
We have noticed some people post links like this http://www.luuux.com/food/mc-tasty in the shoutbox.

Normally this would be fine but unfortunately the hyphen breaks the link. Now a way to get around this is to use http://www.tinyurl.com or https://bitly.com/shorten/ it will shorten your link thus no hyphens. So for instance http://www.luuux.com/food/mc-tasty would become http://tinyurl.com/bekhkzn :)


Posting on forums

We have also noticed some people double posting, this isn't an issue...more of a waste of space...after you have posted your post you are allowed Up to one hour to edit it, this timer refreshes every time you edit and click "Save" it makes things a lot neater if you edit your prior post...the edit button is pink and on the bottom right of your post. So it's easy to find.


Tags or "BB Codes"
If you, like me sometimes use "Quick Reply" but want to include the usage of bb codes to format your text better here is a little guide on the codes and what they do.

To quote words
Code:
[quote]enter desired text [/quote]

To make something Bold
Code:
[b]Your text here[/b]

To make something Italic
Code:
[i]Your text here[/i]

To make something Underlined
Code:
[u]Your text here[/u]

[strike]To make something Strikeout[/strike]
Code:
[strike]Your text here[/strike]

Warning: Spoiler!
Code:
[spoiler]Your text here[/spoiler]

Image Tags
When posting an image you can display it by doing the following format.
Code:
[img]Image Link here[/img]
Example
Code:
[img]http://www.templeofthejediorder.org/components/com_kunena/template/Formality_16/images/ranks/apprentice.jpg[/img]
would become

To make something A Code
Code:
[code]Your text here[ /code] < Minus the space.


Summation

we hope this helps some of the newer members to using a forum/TOTJO :-)

You might think that's the case...it's just because the "BB Codes" bit is much bigger...the first two parts was the main focus.

I think the OP might have been for a previous incarnation of the forum, as I do not see any 'Quick Reply' button anymore. For youtube vidz I just copy and paste the URL address into the body of your reply, quite literally like this for example;

Thanks mate!

I suppose they have switched to a newer template. Even though it doesn't have the quick reply feature(which is really handy imo) it is still pretty cool.

Is there any custom BBcode set up for floating an image? It's a good way to wrap text to the side of a signature image and make it take up less space overall.
