Over time when I find special codes that can enhance postings I will add to this thread.

 

Making an item hidden with a Show/Hide button.

[spoiler] Hidden content [/spoiler]

Example:

Spoiler

 

This can be found using the Special BBCode button in the editor ribbon, but sometimes is just as easy to use the tags.

One thing the board DOES NOT allow because of the security risk, is embedded html or java-script coding. This most often comes as a surprise when someone copies Chinese characters from another site which uses html for display of CHINESE characters. Our board software will simply strip this away with no explanation.

 

Normal Chinese character entry is allowed through an IME.

 

Think of it as user group level software - if something works, that's fine, if not - well you may need to work with one of us (moderators or admins) to do what you are doing.

I added a new media tag for embedding facebook posts, in Facebook click embed, then advanced and copy the page link from advanced.

 . . . and I added one for videos. The problem with FB has been how often they change their embed codes - hopefully, these will be somewhat more perma.nent

 

Like they say,
