Custom BBCodes

Post by SteveG » Thu Jan 26, 2017 7:55 pm

We have created some custom BBCodes to help make certain tasks easier when composing your posts. The first two are buttons labeled "URLtarget" and "YouTube" next to the other BBCode icons immediately above the text editing box.
  • Hover over the button to see the correct BBCode syntax and an example.
  • "URLtarget" is used to create named links to URL locations, web sites, etc. This BBCode is similar to the "Insert URL" BBCode, but with two enhancements:
    1) The syntax is more straightforward.
    2) When a user clicks on the link, the target web page opens in a new browser tab or window (depending on your browser settings) so you don't lose your place in the CKTG Forums.
  • "YouTube" is used to embed YouTube videos in your posts. The syntax is simple - just use the video ID code. You don't need to use a full URL.
We may create additional BBCodes in the future based on forum user feedback and requests. If you have any special BBCode requests, please PM me (SteveG) and provide a link if possible to a programming/syntax example. We will review any requests and make a decision on whether to implement them as new custom BBCodes.

We've create a new "Instagram" BBCode for embedding (linking) Instagram photos & videos into your posts.

Hover over the button to see the correct BBCode syntax and an example.

Just use the Instagram ID code, not the full URL. For example, if your target Instagram photo/video has this URL: www.instagram.com/p/BQYdDQKBT5B/?taken- ... knivestogo the correct ID code is: "BQYdDQKBT5B" for this result:

I modified the Instagram BBCode to allow both photos & videos and changed the format a bit.
