There is a quote button built into the system. However, if you use (quote)………(/quote), except with square brackets instead of round, it will set it off as a quote.

Re: INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTING LINKS AND IMAGES


Also do note, that there are 'insert image' and 'insert link' -buttons right here at the top of the reply window.

Many browsers also allow right-click the image you see on a webpage and 'copy image address'. That you can paste on the box the 'insert image' -button gives you.

Naturally, because of copy-rights, you may not claim said image as your own. For that purpose upload your self-made images on photobucket or similar and copy the image address to your pic from there.

Referring to any online image on a forum, as an example or a discussion topic etc. is 'fair use', though.

Re: INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTING LINKS AND IMAGES


You are right, of course. However, these are just quick tips so that new members can easily participate in the discussion. If you want to create a detailed instruction manual on BBC, I will place a link to it in the original post. I can call it something like: Detailed Guide to Bulletin Board Code.

Such a guide would be helpful to me also. There are things I would like to do and just don’t know how to.

Re: INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTING LINKS AND IMAGES


Actually, now that I think about it, it may be time to have a more complete guide. If you want to write one, I will make it sticky and get rid of the one I posted.

Try to start with basic things and work your way into more detailed instruction. Try to write it in such a way that anyone can glimpse at it and get started posting things—but go back to it when they want to do something more advanced.

For obvious reasons, I had to post my guide as an image. If you know of another way to get around the restrictions of BBC, you are welcome to your methods.

Are there rules about image signatures? Because I can't find a thread for it. (I suck today, lol)

Thank you very much. I was just making sure because the last forum I was in my banner got deleted for being 5 pixels too long. There weren't rules about signatures there too. Oh well, had to make sure for future banners. ^_^
