    Here is one Shticky taught me. Press alt and 1 on your keypad to make a smiley. Does anyone know how to make a link in any word? Like the words “click here” would be a link to wherever you want. If you have a tip post it here.

    You can press alt and any number (on the keypad, it won’t work on a laptop) and get a symbol. Alt/500 does this ?. (I don’t know what it is either)

    These aren’t new but I’ll post ’em anyway

    <t>text</t>

    To get italics, replace “t” with “em”

    To get bold, replace “t” with “strong”

    To get

    this

    replace “t” with “blockquote” (whats it called anyway?)

    To get to the last post on a thread, click the time posted instead of the thread title.

    To get on the bad side of the mods, post enough things that won’t even have a chance of getting through. (not recommended)

    To get back on their good sides, (I told you not to!), bring some coffee and donuts. That would probably help you get on us posters good sides too. Oh, and maybe you’ll want to bring some fermented plum juice. (although I really don’t know what thats about…)

    I just reread this. How strong is that plum juice?

    Isn’t there somewhere these HTML tricks could be sticky-posted?

    Also, how did you link Joseph’s post to “this post?”

    Like so:

    this post

    The “strong” tags bold the text, and the “a” tags make it a link.

    i think you might be able to right the name of a site and ask the mods to change the site name to click here and make it a link.

    mades make this link click here:theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom

    No. Thanks to ayc (who will hopefully be back shortly) I think I got it. Do this:

    <.a href=”Desired link”>Desired text</a.>

    Do exactly as I did above but obviously fill in the space where I wrote Desired link/text and remove the periods.

    Moskidoodle: er sorry I missed that. Could you repeat it slowly please. Actually, I think you posted it in the wrong thread. It should have gone in the “Hebrew / Yiddish words with no English translation” thread… 🙁

    When you log in look at the top of the screen. It will say welcome moi aussi (or your previous name if you changed yours). Click on it and it will take you to your profile. I for some reason that does not work you can type in (or copy and paste) this ? http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/profile/moi-aussi

    Replace moi-aussi for any other poster to get their profile.

    I need help with a posting issue. I began asking it off the moderators on the “mods? mods?” thread where you can ask things of the mods. But I got nowhere. So I went one higher and tried asking the editors via the ‘Contact Us’ button. No response. So I’ll go one even higher yet again. I will ask the posters!!

    After submitting a post it is editable by you for around 20 mins. But how can you edit a new thread that you just began? It still says edit under it but clicking on edit only brings me to the main cr page, even literally seconds after sending it! Who knows?

    That happens to me too. The only thing that you can do (I think) is ask the mods to edit it.

    Shticky – This is probally a glitch in the system. I assume the reasoning is because when one edits a post it removes it from the queue of post waiting for moderation, and then re-submits it, at the end of the line. Thus being I assumme its not possible to have a thread with out any posts on it. So therefor it probally isn’t possible to edit it.

    I knew it! I got a reply after asking the posters! Thanks RB, its a gr8 svara, a real brisk one, baby. And it may even be true. We dont know. Would someone pls contact duvys and find out if this is the accurate reason and whether it can be rectified… Thx. (I am asking this of all editors, mooderators and jothar ☺.)

    How do I put a link in my screen name that appears to the left of my every post? This question was brought up several time and two posters claimed to know the answer, but neither went on to give it, rather they just avoided the question. One of the posters was “J”,the other was chocandpatience. Chocandpatience, would you like to give us the answer please? Mods, is it even possible to do this?

    DaasYochid- Thanks I didn’t see those before but I just tried the link you posted and put my URL in the “website” box and nothing happened. I think I’m missing something.

    If you want people to go to another page (ex. http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/) but you don’t want to crowd your post with URLs, you can make a hyperlink. Instead of having the whole website displayed, the only thing everyone will see is text which is a link to the URL (ex. The Yeshiva World News)

    Here’s how:

    TYPE:

    <a href="http://www.theyeshivaworld.com">The Yeshiva World News</a>

    Now, lets see if it works:

    Visit The Yeshiva World News!

    —-

    By the way, the way I got the above <a href… to be seen – without turning into a link – was by putting a backtick (located on the left of the 1/!) in front and at the end of the code.

    —-

    Hope this helps!!

    Any other Q I can help with?
