Thread: Some site features oulined

  1. #1

    Default Some site features oulined

    Like the title says, this will outline some of the site features and settings. This was originally written to be used as an outline to be turned into an article fitting the requirements for the ADISC Article formatting standards, but I've decided to put a hold on that for a bit, and another member of ADISC has decided to work on it, but I'm not exactly sure how it will work out. It will be up to Akastus and/or Moo. Figured I'd post this to be able to still get the BBCode format of it if need be for the member who continues the article to use parts if they decide to do so, and for your use if you want to go through it, so here it is.Side note: The buttons in the table should go in order, I will get around to replacing the "Attachment ___" with the actual image, but for now you can click it and it will display the image.
    I.Advanced text editorWhen making a post you may notice the “Go Advanced” button next to the “Post Quick Reply” button. This button is to take you to the advanced text editor, which has more features and controls to help you format or detail your post. Below is a table displaying each of the buttons.

    This should display the pictures properly now. It was easier to create a new post than edit the existing one due to the way the BBCode is formatted. (Incomplete atm, work in progress)

    Default

    Here's another revision of the draft. I've been working on it on and off, just when I feel like writing...seems like my depression causes urges to work on it, so this is pretty much the same thing, same content, just different formatting.

    (Originally meant for a PM but formatting got messed up. May be removed at later time)


    I.Advanced text editorWhen making a post you may notice the “Go Advanced” button next to the “Post Quick Reply” button. This button is to take you to the advanced text editor, which has more features and controls to help you format or detail your post. Below is a table displaying each of the buttons.
    This button switches the editor between “editor” mode and WYSIWYG mode.
    Remove Formatting: This button removes the formatting, so any changes to the text such as color, font, size, etc. are restored to the default text.
    The paste as plain text button does as it says, and pastes it removing all formatting from that text.
    The Paste from word button is for copying text exactly as it is in Word, which if copied directly, may remove some or all formatting.
    This adjusts the font type, for a variety of choices such as Arial or Times New Roman.
    This adjusts the font size, 1 being the smallest, and 7 being the largest.
    This allows you to choose font color.
    This displays a window with a few available emoticons.
