Steffy's Spellbook

An Occultist's Guide To BBCode And Forum Magic

(Updated: August 28th, 2019 - 3:40p.m. CDT)

This an index of coding tricks learned at:

Steffy's Magic Shop

It is meant to be used as a quick reference guide only, and we ask
that no one posts here. While many cool tricks are out there, this
guide will only include coding magic tricks performed at
 Steffy's Magic Shop. If you have a suggestion you would like
to see here, please bring it up at magic shop, linked above.
Prizes may be awarded at random by Wizard Steffy if you are
extra creative in your presentation!
Thank you!

(Yes I'm aware that spells out S.M.A.A.C. That's usually the sound heard shortly after
Wizard Steffy figures out I screwed up a spell or didn't give enough information on one).

February 10th, 2019:
The past couple of months, I have been going through a series of personal crises, fitting for a poorly written Hollywood B-movie or regular daytime TV. All is well for the time being, and I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, but if your tip hasn't shown up here, that is why.
Hugs and kisses,
Apprentice Courtney.

Helpful Note

Hi! Your friendly neighborhood shop gurl here with just a brief, but hopefully helpful note! While many of the links below will lead you to a magical place where actual code is shown that you can copy and paste, many just display the actual trick without the code. Awww ...  :-(  But wait! There is a trick to help with that! Take a seat, and fix your pretty little eyes on the top bar just above the post, you should see a button that says:

Pressing that magic little button will act like hitting the reply button, with one cool exception: the code from that particular post will show up in your reply window!

That being said, please be courteous of other people's code. While everything at the shop is yours to copy and paste at will, outright copying someone else's code from outside the Magic Shop should only be done with their permission. It's their hard work, so please, ask them first!
