primer on use quotes and italics for blog postings?

Postby sniglet » Wed Mar 05, 2008 8:23 am

Does anyone know where I can find a primer, and simple examples, of how to incorporate quotes, italics and URL links into my posts on the blog? The controls we have on the forums are nice, but there is nothing like that on the blog, so I need to resort to using native formatting I guess.

Any suggestions?

<i>this will be in italics</i>
<b>this will be in bold</b>
<u>this will be underlined</u>

To post a URL, especially a long one:
<a href="website address here">Link name here</a>

If it's a short URL (i.e. http://www.wikipedia.org/ ) you can just copy+paste the URL, and the software will turn it into a hyperlink.

To post an image (disabled in the comments section):
<img src="image url">

There is nothing in html to quote. I use blockquote, which is a single black line to the left of the quoted post.

<blockquote>quoted text here</blockquote>


I think that's about all you can do in the forum comments.

Generally, you can use HTML tags

Sorry, images aren't enabled on the blog. That's a WordPress limitation that I can't really do anything about. On the other hand, allowing images opens up a can of worms that would perhaps be better left closed. Otherwise, all the info above is accurate for the blog. I should probably add a little formatting link or something.

Also note that the comment preview may get all screwed up if you start using a bunch of HTML. But if your HTML is properly formatted, the comment will look fine.

One other thing, if you want to use the greater than or less than symbols (> or <) in a comment on the blog and you're not trying to make it code, you need to use the special codes:
&gt; = >
&lt; = <

I edited my response to note that images are not enabled. It's useful to know for other sites that use HTML coding, such as MySpace.

Feel free to plagiarize my post if you want, Tim.
