BBCode additions, and a subtraction
« on: October 21, 2013, 09:35:50 AM »
The [you] tag no longer functions outside of the ons and offs boards. It will function in those forums, but only in those forums. I know this may annoy a few of you, but the tag has made itself less than popular. : /

In other news, I have written a few more bbcode tags.
Flipped text
,
reversed text
, and


rotated text




Code: [Select]
[flip]Flipped text[/flip], [reverse]reversed text[/reverse], and


[rotate]rotated text[/rotate]

Rotate also takes an angle as a parameter. rotate=15




The ants go marching aleph-null by aleph-null, hurrah, hurrah...








Negative numbers are people too!




Something you'll notice when using rotate is that most renderers are not quite sure what to make of it, so you'll need to provide space accordingly. Keep in mind. : )

This effect won't work in all browsers, particularly IE 6-8, and some stuff here might not work in IE 9 either.

Enjoy : )

Previewing before posting is a big help with the spacing.

I'm very happy about the changes with the you-tag! ^^

And oooh, I really like the "rotate" thing; that looks awesome!

I think that's a good choice for the You tag.

The new flippy text is nifty. :)

This seems like a snazzy thing for group game tagging:


Name: Onneca de Goni
Faction: Unknown
Date:  May 3, 1876
Time of Day: Morning
Location: The London Royal Apothecary












Sort of lends it a passport stamp look.

Probably because the rotation happens at the center of the word, so it wouldn't push the "top" of the word post-rotation into the cell that the text was originally in.

Heh, functions oddly inside a table:

Camilla


Christopher




Maybe if you add some spaces before the names that will bring them into horizontal alignment with the top of the image.  I have no idea how to fix the vertical alignment but I'm experimenting. ;D

The rotating is kind of cool, but honestly, it might be easier to just make a transparent GIF with rotated text and embed that into your table. >_>; Especially if uniformity and alignment is important to you.

I just like testing new things.

Well it's an awesome code regardless of table-workability!

Yeah I expect flip and reverse to see more 'serious' use. It's hard to know how rotations will otherwise go.

Hmmmm, you might have to have the words on the same line, to keep them aligned with each other?

I believe it does that because before rotating, room is still made for the text in its horizontal position. If I were to shorten Christopher's name:
