For the most part, TCE posts use standard BBcode, meaning that the basic text formats should be familiar to most of its members. However, we’ve also enabled a few extra features that are not standard to ProBoards/other sites, and acknowledge that some users may have little to no coding experience to fall back on, or else may find some of ProBoards’ quirks a little hard to navigate. This guide exists both to assist those members, and to briefly explain some of our more unusual features to their more experienced counterparts.

Please note that this page is not intended to provide a detailed understanding of BBcode, but rather offers a starting point for the most useful features available on TCE. As such, you will notice that many of the options offered by our create/reply-to-thread views are not covered here.

Code: [font size="Number"]Text[/font]

Fᴏɴᴛ Cᴏʟᴏᴜʀs

Code: [font color="hex"]Text[/font]

Cᴏʟᴏᴜʀ Pɪᴄᴋᴇʀ

Whilst most other BBcode buttons automatically add the corresponding code to the post editor window, Font Colour first opens a subwindow containing a colour wheel and blank colour pallet. Font colour is assigned by choosing the appropriate hue/shade from the wheel, or pasting a hex code into the provided box, then selecting ‘ok’. At this point, the code shown above will be entered into your post.

Sᴀᴠᴇᴅ Cᴏʟᴏᴜʀs

Since we recognise that some users may like to colour-code their characters’ speech, TCE allows its users to save up to 18 colours to their account. These will be displayed within the colour picker’s pallet, as shown below.

To save a colour, you must select the appropriate hue/shade from the colour wheel (or provide the appropriate hex), then click the +Fave button. This automatically adds the colour to a blank pallet slot, allowing it be re-selected in future. To use a saved colour, simply click its square within the pallet. To delete a colour from your pallet you must first click the ‘delete’ button, and then select the appropriate colour.

Should you use the colour picker two+ times within a post, you’ll find that the window will include a previously used colours section. This works similarly to the colour pallet, in that it allows you to select colours used within that post without remembering the hex or readjusting the colour wheel. However, this section only works in BBCode view, and is cleared when users exit the post-editor page, so remember to save your colours to the pallet if you intend to use them regularly!

Qᴜᴏᴛᴇs & Sᴘᴏɪʟᴇʀs


Code: [quote]Text[/quote]


Code: [spoiler]Text[/spoiler]
Clicking the spoiler button produces the popup shown below. There are no added advantages to using the button, though it may be more convenient in some instances.



Code: [div align="left"]Text[/div]


Code: [div align="right"]Text[/div]


Code: [div align="center"]Text[/div]


All of TCE’s boards are set to automatically justify any text that has not been given an alignment, meaning that there should be no need for you to use this code tag.


Sᴛᴀɴᴅᴀʀᴅ Iᴍᴀɢᴇs

Code: [img]Image URL[/img]
Clicking the image button will bring up the popup shown below, and provide the option to include a text alternative. It will also produce a longer code that will allow you to tweak the size of the image displayed.

Hʏᴘᴇʀʟɪɴᴋᴇᴅ Iᴍᴀɢᴇs

Code: [url=LinkAddress][img]Image URL[/img][/url]



Code: [url=LinkAddress]Text[/url]
Clicking the hyperlink button will produce the popup shown below. There are no added advantages to using the button, though it may be more convenient in some instances.

Hᴏʀɪᴢᴏɴᴛᴀʟ Rᴜʟᴇ

Code: [hr]
This code allows users to draw a horizontal line across the page, and can be used as an easy means of dividing posts into individual sections. It’s particularly useful when formatting character profiles!

Wᴏʀᴅ Cᴏᴜɴᴛs

Code: Word Count: %wc#
A coding extra that allows users to include their post’s word count directly in the post. It currently has no particular function on TCE, but may be a nice addition for some users.

Greymuzzles: Pretty cute that you're so excited, too! Definitely bodes very well (though I hope your fiancé doesn't mind all of the warriors chatter XD) Jul 26, 2019 9:16:28 GMT
kiwi: Aw, thank you. And he doesn't mind at all. I'm currently converting him into a warriors fan anyway. He randomly picked up a Power of Three book and fell in love there? So I'm getting him hooked. Jul 26, 2019 9:17:26 GMT
Greymuzzles: Well that's good! And definitely a bonus that he's being drawn into warriors, too~ Jul 26, 2019 9:31:01 GMT
Heavens: Hey Grey, about the Bonus Scheme. Can we claim things that we have already done? like can I claim 'Into The Clan' even though I done this before the Scheme? Jul 26, 2019 10:12:06 GMT
kiwi: Oh, hello there. :) Jul 26, 2019 10:14:38 GMT
Heavens: Hi! kiwi's are my fav fruit Jul 26, 2019 10:50:05 GMT
Heavens: or one of my fav Jul 26, 2019 10:50:12 GMT
Greymuzzles: I'm afraid you won't be able to claim Into the Clan or First Steps (which somehow didn't make it into the bonus thread when I was moving the write-up across--will add that back in in a few), because you would have been given those bonuses more [c] Jul 26, 2019 13:14:57 GMT
Greymuzzles: informally when the original two bonuses (for posting a character and making your first roleplay post) were rolled out. The same goes for everyone else who made their first character/roleplay post before the scheme was posted. Wouldn't be fair to give [c] Jul 26, 2019 13:16:33 GMT
Greymuzzles: you guys the one-time bonuses twice! You're free to claim any of the others, though Jul 26, 2019 13:16:57 GMT
kiwi: Kiwi's a good fruit Heavens ^^ I do like it Jul 26, 2019 21:59:41 GMT
kiwi: Howdy in advance to all who come on;; Nice to meet you! I'm playing Crowfall, your newest deputy. I hope to get a chance to chat with you all :) Jul 27, 2019 5:56:47 GMT
Heavens: That's okay Grey! thanks for clarifying! Jul 27, 2019 10:04:13 GMT
Greymuzzles: You're welcome~ Jul 27, 2019 10:38:40 GMT
