Quote Thingy
 
This probably isn't the right place to put it, but I couldn't find anywhere else.
Anyways, heres my question: How exactly do you do the quote thingy where is says "Originally Posted By XXXX" or something like that? :O

There's a blue button with orange apostrophes and the word "quote" (in white) in the bottom right corner of the poster's box thing. Click that and you can get the quote box (:

Also, the icon next to it will allow you to quote multiple people; although I can't really explain it well. I think someone else may be able to (or you can experiment on your own :py25:)

Quote post: Click on the quote button and it'll insert the quote for you.

Multiquote: Click on the '"+' button for all posts you want to add except the last one, and press quote.

If you don't care about a link to the actual post just type

[QUOTE=Sandrie][/QUOTE]

which should show up as

+rep to the three of you :3
thanks for the info.
but, I have one more question.
How do you make a word turn into something you can click on for a link?
Eg: The
And you would be able to click on it to make another link pop up or something like that.

To hyperlink text, you would type:

HTML Code:

[url=WEBSITE HERE]your text here[/url]
So as an example, it would look something like this when you type it in completely:

HTML Code:

[url=http://ggftw.com/]Welcome to ggFTW![/url]
Which comes out looking like this when it's done:

Welcome to ggFTW!

alright then, thanks
+rep.
just wondering, do I have to close this thread (since its not market thread)? If yes, close thread please.

Esper 10-10-2012 12:08 AM

Members don't get the ability to close threads. Those are given to Moderators and above. You can just leave a thread alone after your question has been solved.

The only reason we requested members to say "close this thread" in Market was organization. It was made so that all closed threads in the Market sections get dropped down and only active ones stay on the first page.

SStardust 10-10-2012 02:21 AM

My bad, I was meant to ask if a moderator had to close this thread.
+rep for info :3

SStardust 10-10-2012 03:48 PM

sorry for asking alot of questions, but is there something you can press for this thing?

Esper 10-10-2012 04:13 PM

Harlequin was telling you the format and then giving you an example. The thing you just copied for "your text here" doesn't really got to any page.
Quote:

This is the format our forum uses:
[url=WEBSITE HERE]your text here[/url]
For WEBSITE HERE, you're suppose to replace it with the actual URL. Let's say we're going to link to Harlequin's profile, it would look like this when you're done filling it out:
[url=http://ggftw.com/forum/members/harlequin.html]ggFTW - View Profile: Harlequin[/url]


SStardust 10-10-2012 06:15 PM

what I meant was, is there something you can press to make [url =] [/url ] appear?
eg: For quote, you can press the button where theres that little speech bubble.

Esper 10-10-2012 06:29 PM

Yes there is. Click the Globe icon with the chain.

If you highlight the text, like below, it'll turn whatever you highlighted into a link when you enter the URL and click OK.

SStardust 10-10-2012 07:11 PM

ok, thanks for info.
I've got the hang of it now, sorry for asking so many questions :O.

Revolution 11-03-2012 11:00 PM

I just also realised that you can just write the text after putting the link as the place you need to type is highlighted :O
