Hidden BBcodes ;)

Postby MaTT » Sun Feb 26, 2012 12:48 pm

Hello everyone!
Have you noticed some of the buttons above the post-box? They are BBcode buttons if you didn't know, they form BBcodes in your posts like [example][/example]

There is also some hidden BBcodes that work, but are not shown there.
Code: Select all
[GT]Server IP:Server PORT[/GT]
For example: [GT]151.80.238.158:27960[/GT]

Please don't use this to advertise other servers other than #ET|Servers. It allows people who have GTLite by Gametracker.com installed to connect to an IP in Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory by clicking the icon. Similarly, there is also [GT_CS] which works exactly the same way, except it's used for players connecting to a Counter Strike: Global Offensive server.


Code: Select all
[etl]Server IP:Server PORT[/etl]
For example: [etl]151.80.238.158:27960[/etl]

Please don't use this to advertise other servers other than #ET|Servers. It allows people who use ET: Legacy to connect to an IP by clicking the icon.


Code: Select all
[tb]Server IP:Server PORT[/tb]
For example: [tb]151.80.238.158:27960[/tb]

Please don't use this to advertise other servers other than #ET|Servers. It allows people who use have Trackbase Minimizer by Trackbase.net installed to connect to an IP in Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory by clicking the icon.


Code: Select all
[Tip]Tip Text[/Tip]
For example: [Tip]Press the Print Screen or PrtSc button on your keyboard to make a screenshot[/Tip]

This can be used to give people hidden tips, like a spoiler accept when you hover over the link, it shows a pop-up.
TIP

Code: Select all
[errorbox]Errorbox text[/errorbox]
For example: [errorbox]You need to use Firefox or Google Chrome, not Internet Explorer.[/errorbox]

This is like [infobox] accept red, it shows a cross and it's to alert people of something. Can be used mainly in a tutorial.
You need to use Firefox or Google Chrome, not Internet Explorer.


Code: Select all
[successbox]Successbox text[/successbox]
For example: [successbox]Well done, you have completed it![/successbox]

This is like [infobox] accept green, it shows a tick and it's to show people they have done something. Can be used mainly in a tutorial.
Well done, you have completed it!


Code: Select all
[countdown]YEAR#,MONTH#,DAY#,HOUR#,MINUTE#,SECOND#[/countdown]
For example: [countdown]2012,5,13,0,0,0[/countdown]

You can count down to a specific date, hour, minute or even second. the date shown in the example is the date for the clan's 10 year birthday! What an achievement that would be!


Code: Select all
[forumSB][/forumSB]
For example: [forumSB][/forumSB]

With this you can add a Forum Search Box (SB) so people can search the forum.


Code: Select all
[hr][/hr]
For example: [hr][/hr]

Nothing special here, just another version of [line] where it adds a line across the page which can be used as a paragraph separator if you wish.



Code: Select all
[legend=Title]Text here[/legend]
For example: [legend=How to Make a Screenshot]Press the button marked "Print Screen" or "PrtSc" on your keyboard.[/legend]

Just adds a box around a title and some text, simple as that.
How to Make a ScreenshotPress the button marked "Print Screen" or "PrtSc" on your keyboard.


Code: Select all
[lmgtfy]keyword(s)[/lmgtfy]
For example: [lmgtfy]nyan+cat[/lmgtfy]

LMGTFY means Let Me Google That For You, it is very handy and when you click the button, it searches on google the keywords you put in (they must be seperated by "+" and have no spaces to work) with a neat animation of searching google.


Code: Select all
[moimg=(first img url)](2nd image url)[/moimg]
For example: [moimg=http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-dbMPA7qQCFU/TZMkQ_PNJ3I/AAAAAAAAAE4/Yc9Coi9nvK4/s1600/et-logo2.jpg]http://etconfig.net/wp-content/themes/etconfig_net/images/wolfenstein_enemy_territory_etconfig.jpg[/moimg]

The first Image URL is when you are looking at it, the second Image URL is when you put your mouse over it, it changes the image, cool ehh?


Code: Select all
[shadow]Text with shadow[/shadow]
For example: [shadow]Hello World![/shadow]

This is cool, it drops a shadow underneath your text you have written, unfortunately it doesn't work in Internet Explorer.
Hello World!

Code: Select all
[note]Here is a note[/note]
For example: [note]Here is a note[/note]

This one may be useful in topics that are often edited by moderators, the text won't show when you post it, but it will show for anyone who edits your post; useful if you want to leave a note for moderators and admins that edit a post a lot. However, this can be a little glitchy in places, i've noticed you can only have one note per post.


Code: Select all
[anchor=Anchor]Anchor Tag[/anchor]
For example: [anchor=anchorname]Anchor Text[/anchor]

This is another useful one and is used together with the [goto] BBcode. This anchor tag can be used as a link to the same page; how is that useful you say? It's the same way the Go to Top link at the bottom of the page works, it moves the window up or down the page to where the Anchor is. Take a look at the example on [goto] below to see, it will take your window to the the example of this anchor tag.
Anchor Text

Code: Select all
[goto=Name of Anchor]Goto Text[/goto]
For example: [goto=anchorname]Go to Anchor Text[/goto]

This BBcode is used together with [anchor], clicking this BBcode in the post itself will take the window up or down to where the [anchor] tag is located. Try the example below to see what I mean. Clicking it should take you to the example of the [anchor] tag above; right at the top of your browser window it should say "Anchor Text" which is what the [anchor] example text is.
Go to Anchor Text

And that is all of them, Have fun :D

Updated this topic after a long time, removed the [mp3] BBCode and it doesn't seem to work anymore. The [xfire] BBCode has also been removed since Xfire stopped it's client support. However, [etl], [tb] and [note] have been added, the IPs in the examples have been updated for our current server IPs and info about [gt_cs] has been added in the description of [gt].
