    Ah, I like that, Curiosity killed - very handy chart. Normally I click the colon and go through every letter, and often end up deciding none of them quite fits. I would like a laughing face that doesn't look quite as inane as the lol one - I'm sure there were more varieties on the old Ship.

    Not all of those came up with just one letter - I had to go looking for quite a few of them, things like sleepy and sleeping, scream and weary - although they are on the list that @BroJames linked to on the requests for the new Ship. The grey question :grey_question: comes up as both grey question and error.
  • It would be great if the PTB pinned this for easy access.
  • But the two we need most are killing me and not worthy.
  • Isn't that because we're used to using those smileys that way? And could learn to use, say :smirk: (smirk) or :naughty: (naughty) or :+1: (thumbs up) in similar ways?

    Compared to the old UBB software, we've now got a larger number of smilies. But, customising them (to change their appearance, or description) or adding to the list is not simple. It also appears that some of the updates that come through occasionally may bring in new smilies (I'd not seen the cookie one before). And, putting a restriction on the number of smilies in each post is also not simple, so far no one has abused our eyes by immoderate use of smilies and we trust that won't happen.

  • Changing font colour:

    Here's how to change your font colour to blue:
    [color=blue]Here's how to change your font colour to blue:[/color]
    
    or [color=#0000FF]Here's how to change your font colour to blue:[/color]
    

    There is a chart for all the colours here.
    Note you must put a "#" before the six figure Hex code (as above)

    For many of the common colours, you don't have to use a Hex code, you can simply use "red", "blue", "pink" etc.

    There is a list of named colours here.

    I'll just try one more.
    [color=Mediumvioletred]I'll just try one more.[/color]

  • I'm going to try sizing now....

    like this
    [size=200]like this[/size]
    

    nope, probably not enabled.
  • The ability to change size of font was enabled, but seems to have gone, because I liked being able to footnote with a smaller font and am stuck with using grey and italics, if I want to go that way.

    ¹footnote style

    Some of us have been able to use colour and size coding from before the boards started, and proved it back in in March, but are choosing not to clutter up the boards with things that do not add to discussions.

    I suggest using subscript¹ for footnotes.

    ¹ Quote this post to see the super-secret code.
  • Very cool ¹

    ¹ I did wonder how it was still possible

    It's here:
    ¹ [sub]Quote this post to see the super-secret code.[/sub]
    

    But why do you need '1'? Do you need it?

    It appears not

    OK, it's a '1' for the footnote - understood.

    and here's how:

    &sup2; [sub]for a second footnote[/sub]
    

    ¹ like this
    ² for a second footnote

    But you also need ¹references in your text².
    But you also need &sup1;references in your text&sup2;.
    
  • RooKRooK Admin Emeritus
    In my example, I happened to use the ASCII character of a superscript 1. You can, however, use code1 for superscript to denote the footnotes.

    1 Again, I'm lazily just demonstrating without showing the code directly.
  • The ASCI code only works for ¹ ² ³. To go beyond requires 4 5 6 coding or symbols † *
  • ¹ like this
    ² for a second footnote
    ³ third
    &sup4; forth (fails?)

    &sup1; [sub]like this[/sub]
    &sup2; [sub]for a second footnote[/sub]
    &sup3; [sub]third[/sub]
    &sup4; [sub]forth (fails?)[/sub]

  • OK, first one had two https:// codes

    Langley Chapel should work
    [url=https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/langley-chapel/history/]Langley Chapel[/url]
    

    I type this stuff in, so when I want to code I type in [ url = (minus spaces) - then wander off, copy and paste the site address, close bracket, ], type in what I want it to say then [ / url] without the spaces to close the url command off.
  • If you (as probably most of us do) copy the whole address of the site you want to link to, then when using the instant URL button make sure that the text already there is deleted before you paste the link in (otherwise you'll get an extra https://), which is exactly the same as the button on the old UBB Ship. Unlike the old Ship, there's no second box for the replacement text, instead the software automatically includes the URL in the reply box, but already highlighted so that it's simple to delete and replace with the text you want (though, personally I find this a bit of a pain on my phone since getting the keyboard up on the screen tends to result in the cursor in my post moving off the highlighted text, I tend to avoid posting links using my phone!).
  • Typing the codes is much easier on a phone, as copying and pasting a site address is OK, and typing in the coding then works.
  • MMMMMM Shipmate
    It’s deleting the text already there I think I’m missing.

    Thanks for the help. I’ll try again on the thread.

  • MMMMMM Shipmate
    Success! Thank you both.

    Unlike the old Ship, there's no second box for the replacement text, instead the software automatically includes the URL in the reply box, but already highlighted so that it's simple to delete and replace with the text you want.

    An alternate methodology is to write the text you want to appear as a link, select it, then use the link button. Whatever is selected will be turned into the link to whatever address you then paste in (being mindful of the extra https://).
  • That's the same method as I'd use to hyperlink in other documents: highlight the words that I'm linking to, find the hyperlink command (not adding that here as too confusing) and enter the site address in the box provided.

    Now how do I create links on a smartphone to get my A level?

    @Rublev I just found this post, and perhaps you've figured it out already. In case you haven't, I'll try to explain.

    I assume you've figured out how to make a link using the little chain icon that appears at the top of a new post, if you're using a desktop/laptop. If not, go back and read Barnabas62's very instructive post. Also read the one after that by Marvin, who points out that the software doubles the https://.

    Now. If you're posting on a smartphone, you've figured out that it doesn't have that handy linky icon. So you will have to enter the whole business yourself. It is not difficult.

    Here's an example using my favorite Bible browser, Oremus, in order to enter a link to Matthew 4:1-11.

    1. Get the URL you want to link to. Copy it so it's in your clipboard.
    2. Paste the URL into your post, where you want it. So, for the link in my earlier paragraph, I would have pasted this: http://bible.oremus.org/?ql=419088916
    3. The next thing you do is type [url=] right before the URL you've pasted in.
    4. Then put a "closed" bracket at the end of that URL. One of these guys: ]
    5. Now type in whatever words you want to describe that site, like in the example above where I typed "Matthew 4:1-11".
    6. To finish, type[/url] at the end of the whole thing.

    One slight correction. On point 3, just type "[url=" (without the closed bracket) before the pasted url string (and without the quotation marks, of course). THEN do the closed brackets at the end of the url.

    Personally, even on a desktop/laptop, I have found it easier to use this method for links rather than rely on the chain link icon--which I find problematic to use.
  • MamacitaMamacita Shipmate
    You are correct, Hedgehog. Thank you.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Thanks for the outline. I am using a smartphone so I'll give it a try.
