new BBCode: sdt, sdp, tt

Postby Antony » Thu 10 Jun, 2004 8:53 am

And the link to other SillyDog701 posts (threads) will be in a new colour plus an icon (Image)to differentiate from external links (Image). Internal link won't open in a new browser window.

External link, for example MozInfo701, will be opened in a new browser window.

For example, New G5 dual 2.5GHz (won't open in a new browser window)
If you are lazy, you can use the new sdt, the usage is sdt=thread ID
Hence the same link can be typed in a new way [sdt=5941]New G5 dual 2.5GHz[/sdt]
Code: Select all
[sdt=5941]New G5 dual 2.5GHz[/sdt]


What if you want to link to a particular post?
Such as the second post in New G5 dual 2.5GHz thread?
Similarly, you can use the new sdp, the usage is sdp=post ID
Hence the same link can be typed in a new way [sdp=34702]the second post[/sdp]
Code: Select all
[sdp=34702]the second post[/sdp]


How do you find the post ID?
Just click on the Image next to "date time"
i.e. something like:

I hope you can enjoy the new BBCode (coded by Antony) to save your typing time or copy-n-paste time.

Added 25.7.2004,
Want to type monospaced letters in the message?
Using TT
Code: Select all
This is normal text. [tt]This is monospaced text. (teletype)[/tt]
will give you
This is normal text. [tt]This is monospaced text. (teletype)[/tt]

    Suggested Usage
  • file path
    e.g. the profile is located in [tt]C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles[/tt]
  • file name
    e.g. Edit the [tt]prefs.js[/tt] file
  • func†ion name, variable name, variable.
    e.g. [tt]user_pref("browser.cache.memory.capacity", 4096);[/tt]


Benefit of using this TT code?
Making the text standing out, won't confused with the rest of the text (sentence).
Quick to type.
Same name as HTML tag.
It's in the same line as the text, unlike CODE BBCode, it won't start a new block.

Sounds handy to me.

I'll try it the first opportunity that I get.

The new behavior causes me to mistakenly close windows that I am working on. I would rather have the internal links open up in a new window instead of the same window, but I'll get used to the new system if this is not changed.

thanks for the feedback.

I have considered this issue, but if all (internal) links are opened in new window, there will be lots of windows overlapping. And there are always to copy a link in a new window or in a new tab. (Check your preference and the context menu.)
I haven't figured out a way to open a link which designed to be opened in a new window in the same window. Since it is easier to do the other way round, I decided to add this feature.

I was wondering about all those arrows in links.

I too would rather have internal links open in a new window, same as external links so I'll just right-click and open the link in a new window (or new tab). That's what I usually do on other sites when I want to look at a link but still have the original page open. That way I just X-out the new page without having to use the back button and reload the original page.

TT BBCode

Postby Antony » Sat 24 Jul, 2004 9:45 am

SillyDog701 is always improving, now, another new BBCode available in SillyDog701 Message Centre - TT

You can use it to type monospaced text (teletype) in the message.
Using TT
Code: Select all
This is normal text. [tt]Now monospaced text (teletype).[/tt] Back to normal.
will give you
This is normal text. [tt]Now monospaced text (teletype).[/tt] Back to normal.

    Suggested Usage
  • file path
    e.g. the profile is located in [tt]C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles[/tt]
  • file name
    e.g. Edit the [tt]prefs.js[/tt] file
  • function name, variable name, variable.
    e.g. [tt]user_pref("browser.cache.memory.capacity", 4096);[/tt]


Benefit of using this TT code?
Making the text standing out, won't confused with the rest of the text (sentence). Very useful in file path and valuable that you want to make sure it is clear.
Quick to type.
Same name as HTML tag.
It's in the same line as the text (i.e. inline), (unlike CODE BBCode, it won't start a new block.)
You don't need to specify a new colour for it, it's in dark green by default.

Our Message Centre is now even easier to link to.

To link to any particular thread (from outside), simply use our sdt=####, in the URL, such as http://sillydog.org/forum/sdt_####.php

e.g. to link to [sdt=10930] from other sites, you can use http://sillydog.org/forum/sdt_10930.php

Similar method applies to sdp=#### e.g. http://sillydog.org/forum/sdp_####.php

Of course, the old links still work.

Can't you already do this using viewtopic.php's [tt]?t=[/tt] and [tt]?p=[/tt] arguments?

We are into our second phase of URL tidying. All URLs will be displayed in this new way, making the link shorter.

Or course, the links in older format will always work.
