Ame's writing related thoughts & advice ~BBCode~

Code: [Select]
[floatleft][img padding=6]http://www.musiciansatlas.com/newsletter/apr09/kiss_lips.jpg[/img][/floatleft]This is a big kiss. I'm gonna use it to show you a few more things so you have it in writing.
All right, first matter at hand: A smaller kiss.
If you want your pic to be smaller than what it is in the location you took it from,
you do a code like this:

Code: [Select]
[floatright][img width=100]http://www.musiciansatlas.com/newsletter/apr09/kiss_lips.jpg[/img][/floatright] using any number you like. Hmm what else... Oh, links. So I assume you know how to link a word to somewhere else, or in other words embed a link like:                               

Code: [Select]
[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss]This[/url]

Now, if you want the link to be in another color than the standard blue all links get on here, you can add a color tag. You do that within the url tags like this:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss][color=red]This[/color][/url] and get a lovely color. If you want to use the same color as the text around it but worry about the link not being noticeable, don't worry.

Code: [Select]
[color=maroon]It gets underlined when [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss][color=maroon]it is[/color][/url] moused over.[/color]

All right, this can be done in the same way with text editing: font, bold, italic, etc. Just make sure you nestle it properly like this:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss][size=18pt][font=georgia][b][i][color=red]This[/color][i][/b][/font][/size][/url] and you're all good. You nestle tags, as you see there, counting from the word/text you are modifying. Your tags line up like a bull's eye, matching tags added to either side, layer by layer...
Okay, what else... Oh, linking pictures.
To link a picture to another place, you use the exact same method as above, just use an image as the tag within the url tags. Look: The standard link:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss]This[/url] and then you add the picture link to it. The picture link is:
Code: [Select]
[img width=100]http://www.musiciansatlas.com/newsletter/apr09/kiss_lips.jpg[/img]

and added to the standard link it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss][img width=100]http://www.musiciansatlas.com/newsletter/apr09/kiss_lips.jpg[/img][/url]
Now, if you want to have text wrap around the linked image you do it like this:

Code: [Select]
[floatright][url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss][img width=100]http://www.musiciansatlas.com/newsletter/apr09/kiss_lips.jpg[/img][/url][/floatright]

and of course I need more text to show you how it wraps so here is something from that wiki article I link to: "A kiss is the act of pressing one's lips against the lips or other body parts of another. Cultural connotations of kissing vary widely. A kiss may be used to express sentiments of love, passion, affection, respect, greeting, friendship, and good luck, among many others. The word came from Old English cyssan "to kiss", in turn from coss "a kiss". The act of kissing has become a common expression of affection among many cultures worldwide. Yet in certain cultures, kissing was introduced only through European settlement; prior to this, kissing was not a routine occurrence. Examples of this include certain indigenous peoples of Australia, the Tahitians, and many tribes in Africa."

Without my "code" tags, this post looks like this:
