    Instead of cluttering up other threads with attempts at ascii art and formatting experiments that may not come out the way we expected, why not use this thread to both experiment with our techniques and relay tips to others?

    i never even figured out how to italicize. never mind all this other fancy stuff.

    #630399

    italicize:

    first:

    <

    then:

    em

    then:

    >

    (no spaces)

    where you want to end the italics, do the same as above, but instead of em, type /em

    (to use bold, replace em with strong )

    thanks joseph. they say you learn something new every day. and this day’s almost over so we had to fit that something in now 🙂

    #630406

    can s/o tell me what i keep doing wrong?

    #630407

    brooklyn19
    Participant

    yeah you’re not following joseph’s instructions.

    “<” then “em” then “>”

    then type in your words

    then “<” then “/em” then “>”

    and you’re done!

    #630408

    DHI:

    you need to put a > after your first em, and you need to put a </ before your second em

    brooklyn19, the day has just begun, the day is yet young…

    i get what “strong” is supposed to mean. but what’s “em”?

    #630411

    oh! like this?

    #630412

    <em>cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters</em>

    cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters

    <strong>cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters</strong>

    cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters

    <ul>cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters</ul>

      cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters

    <ol>cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters</ol>

      cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the first and last characters

    ICOT: How’d you manage to get your first line to show (with the code), that the code didn’t italicize it??

    #630414

    brooklyn19
    Participant

    what are “ul” and “ol”? and while i’m at it, “li”?

    #630415

    Ignore the “except for the first and last characters” portion of the above instructions.

    The reason is not worth explaining, but if you’re interested it’s because the tick characters used to delimit the code didn’t appear in the instructions as I expected them to.

    #630416

    Joseph-

    Since you asked, it is worth explaining – I posted my comment before yours appeared.

    <li>cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the
    first
    and
    last
    character</li>

  • cut and paste the entirety of this, except for the

    first

    and

    last

    characters

#630417

brooklyn19-

ul = underline (appears not to work properly)

ol = overline (appears not to work properly)

li = list (I just tried it – lets see how it works)

#630419

yay! i did it!!!

#630420

“li” is REALLY not working properly.

Let’s see if a few closing tags fix it.

    i’m experimenting on ul

    and on ol

  • and on li
  • to figure out what they are…

    ICOT: I meant how are you able to get the CR to display your examples with the code included (normally it will strip the code prior to displaying it)?

    #630424

    UL & LI:

    • Marketing

      • Andy Hodges
      • Trey Gregory

    • Engineering

      • Karen Joslin
      • Sheila Malone
      • Karl Heinz

    OL & LI:

    1. Take 495 north
    2. Cross the 14th Street Bridge
    3. Take the Maine Avenue exit
    4. Turn left at the first light

    Joseph-

    Enclose the entire line within backticks (the character that looks like an apostrophe under the tilde).

    The backticks don’t appear, but all text between them, including tags, do.

    Suggestion: Let’s skip the <li> (list) tags, since they appear to thoroughly mangle any following posts on the page.

    lol not sure what i just did but something happened. oh well who cares anyway. anyone have anything interesting to say on any of the other threads? any new trivia questions? i’m really not in the mood to play monopoly with my family tonight…

    #630429

    Joseph-

    Thank you for the correction.

    For those who missed it:

    UL = Unordered List (list formatted with bullet points)

    OL = Ordered List (list formatted with numbers)

    ICOT:

    Your very welcome!

    (And there is blockquote)

    #630431

    so this is how i make

    1. an
    2. ordered
    3. list

    as opposed to

    • an
    • unordered
    • one???

    cool! (lets hope it works!)

    #630432

    brooklyn19

    Tofasta meruba lo tafasta.

    Wordpress only gives what they say they give.

    Why not try combining font attributes with something they allow – e.g. blockquote?

    ICOT:

    The CR forums are actually using bbPress, not WordPress (though both come from the same company.) WordPress itself allows most html code to be used (including the main YWN site.)

    #630442

    Joseph-

    Once again, thank you for the info/correction.

    Looking at the source for this page, I see “unapproved” tags have the <> replaced by amp+gt and amp+lt, so I’m wondering if font info is embedded within approved tags, would that be processed as code?
