    Need help critiquing (How are those Little Blue Boxes made?)

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Michael O, May 14, 2013.

    Been farting around trying and damn if I can figure out how to parse work into those little blue quote boxes. Only way to do a fair critique.

    Thanks.

    You mean these blue boxes? Either hit Reply with Quote, to get a quote attributing the quote to the writer, along with the entire entry, OR click on the quote bubble and then paste the text between the brackets. Or you could type a bracket then the word QUOTE, then type an end bracket, paste in the text you want to quote, then place /QUOTE in brackets at the end.

    You have to put a / before the word quote in the second tag. Example below using noparse tags to keep it from activating.

    [noparse]
    [/noparse]

    Without the noparse tags, (which use the same rule, putting a / in the second tag) it looks like this...

    Hope that helps! :D

    EDIT: Ok, something isn't right here...

    EDIT2: Fixed it!

    all i do is highlight the parts i want to quote and then do a copy/paste into the reply box...once there, i highlight it and click on the 'quote' icon in the tool bar... it's the easiest/quickest way to quote just part of a post...

    just did it with that in less than 10 seconds...

    The primary purpose of the site FAQ is to explain how to master the editing features of the site.

    Despite the fact some people think it's easy to figure out this forum, "Read the FAQs" is not the most helpful answer. There were several pages that took me a while to find. Like for instances, if you typically just look at "new posts" like I do, you don't see the menu box that shows up on the right when you are on the forum contents page (click on "community").

    From there I had to hunt for the BB Code page. There are several places one might think it was logical to find it.
    Every forum member is new to this medium at some point in their lives. There's nothing wrong with asking how to do things.

    Michael O, aka, The Cowboy Monkey loves Coffee.

    Why not make something akin to a knewbie package. A check-off list. Even a monkey like me might could figure that out.

    I showed up and posted work ~ day one. "Hi! How y'all doing? Read this now! lmao stupid monkey:)

    I'm going back to FAQ. Been there once or twice....Third time's a charm.

    The Important Information box on the site home page, which contains the FAQ link, also contains a couple new member intro links. One is even labeled Newbie Basics.
