Question re: Boxes Around Text in Posts Other than 'Quote'
« on: July 11, 2014, 06:48:15 AM »
With the new design (nice!), I find myself needing to reformat a few things in some current threads and I want to change up a few things.

Is there a way to put a box around some text other than using the quote feature?   It could be an actual line, a box of color, dotted lines or anything similar.  I'm looking for a way to easily separate detailed story ideas so that it's easy to tell at a glance where one ends and the next begins.

I'm already using hard returns to separate categories.  'Quote' would work just fine if it didn't replace the images with a click box to show.    I tried highlight, but that's definitely more useful for a line or a small selection of words rather than a paragraph or more.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  :-)

It's not a box, so may not be quite what you need, but the horizontal rule tag puts a line across the page so can be used for divisions

I'm already using that for something else within the posts (to separate categories) so I'm looking for one more level of distinction.  Thanks, though!   :-)

What about if you try to use
 a floatright or floattleft box
 like one does for pictures.
It wouldn't have a line around
it, but it would set it apart from
the rest, especially if the text
were bolded, like this.

Interesting.  I didn't realize that worked for text as well as pictures. :-)

I've mostly figured out a way to do my reformatting without a box - not what I had first envisioned, but it works well enough that I'm happy with the results.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I will keep the info about floatright / floatleft stored in my noggin for possible later use.
