Alkagari's Posting Guide

Postby Alkagari » Wed Oct 28, 2009 11:23 am

Posting Guide:
Section 1 - Large Images
Section 2 - Wowhead Links
Section 3 - Youtube Links
Section 4 - Flash
Section 5 - Titles
Section 6 - Blizzard Quotes


Section 1 - Large Images:


Instead of using the img bbcode:
Code: Select all
[img]http://www.thenemeton.net/someimage.png[/img]


Use the ss bbcode (short for screenshot):
Code: Select all
[ss]http://www.thenemeton.net/someimage.png[/ss]


Example:
http://fc00.deviantart.com/fs22/f/2008/026/f/1/FrostArmor_by_VisiV.jpg
*A wallpaper i made for my laptop a while ago, this would undoubtedly break the page if i used the img bbcode.

Section 2 - Wowhead Links:

This sections content is currently disabled on the forums, we're currently trying to get it re-implemented.

For linking items from wowhead, as a wowhead tooltip:
Code: Select all
[item]My Legendary Item[/item]


*supposedly you are able to link items with gems and enchants on them by adding enchant="enchant_id" and gems="gem1id, gem2id, etc.." but it doesn't appear to work at the moment.

Examples:
[The Horseman's Reins]


For linking spells from wowhead, as a wowhead tooltip:
Code: Select all
[spell]My OP Spell[/spell]


Examples:
[Headless Horseman's Mount]


For linking achievements from wowhead, as a wowhead tooltip:
Code: Select all
[achievement]My Uber Awesome Achievement[/achievement]


Examples:
[The Horseman's Reins]

For linking characters (icons - class and race):
Code: Select all
[armory loc="region (us / eu), server (ursin)"]Alkagari[/armory]


Examples:

For linking characters (icons - class and race):
Code: Select all
[profile loc="region (us / eu), server (ursin)"]Alkagari[/profile]


Examples:
Alkagari

For linking craftable items as a wowhead tooltip:
Code: Select all
[craft]Your Rare Craftable[/craft]

*Seems enchants don't work or you must have the correct name for them.

Examples:

[Sapphire Spellthread] Created By [Sapphire Spellthread] (Toggle Mats)

***There is no dissecting to be done anymore, names now work.

For linking zone maps with optional pin markers:
Code: Select all
[zone]{zone name}[/zone]
[zone pins="{x1},{y1}|{x2},{y2}|etc."]{zone name}[/zone]


Examples:
Twilight Highlands
Flight Masters in Twilight Highlands


Section 3 - Youtube Links:


Code: Select all
[youtube]video id #[/youtube]


Example:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uun5A7FXv84 - this is the video id #


Section 4 - Flash:


Code: Select all
[flash=width(in pixels), height(in pixels)]http://www.linkto.com/your/flash.swf[/flash]


MAXIMUM WIDTH IS 600px!!!

Example:



Section 5 - Titles:


Code: Select all
[title1]Some Title[/title1]


Code: Select all
[title2=#FF0000]Some Title2[/title2]


Examples:

Some Title

Some Title2


Section 6 - Blizzard Quotes:


Code: Select all
[blizz="Alkagari" url="http://www.thenemeton.net"]Andrenn is a new alliance raid boss, he is now guardian to King Varian Wrynn and Prince Anduinn Wrynn[/blizz]


Examples:

How do we find spell and item numbers? Is it possible just to use the item name instead?

Like "purge"

Item and spell numbers are at the end of the wowhead link after the equal sign.

Yea I know that's where the number goes ...

Do I have to go look at the item in the wowhead pages before I can link the item/spell? .. seems a bit clunky if I already know the correct item or spell name.

Is it just me, or are things like the [item] tags not working?

There are now links to sections on this post, I will include how to use these custom bbcodes I installed in order to achieve the same effect in anyone's future or current guides they may have written up.

Chupala has gotten our wowhead back working again.

The armory bbcode is still not working.
The screenshot (ss) bbcode is currently also not working.

Working to correct the screenshot bbcode as of this post.
