I was too accustomed to other forums where i can post url's, images, quotes with a click of a button instead of typing out the simple code to do it.

For example: 

www.hothardware.com 

vs

http://hothardware.com/category.aspx

 

So, since me being a noob and all, i'm assuming there are other members out there who struggle with these as well, its cool, i did to. So heres a website you guys can access if you need to figure out how to post an image/jpeg, quote, paste a url etc.

Please use, and not abuse,

 

Cheers

I didn't know I could use BBcode on here. Now I know to use it more often.

well, i noticed that not all the code works... but most of the stuff does. I thought the common ones people should know are: url, img, b/i/u (bold/italics/underline) theres a ton more that can be used, but i think these are the big ones (Y)

This is done via

the [View:_______________enter url_______________________ (close square bracket)

So: replace the '(' and ')' with '[' and ']'

just to 'bump' this a bit  and refer to the Embedded video thread as well

http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/p/53684/395262.aspx#395262

sometimes you may want to RH click on the uTube vid to get the url info to copy into HH vid link

mention because it was a suggestion for a possible solution for some to provide a 3rd url that youtube or such  may not be showing

try using  that

 

have fun
