If you could have a new bbcode, what would it be & what would it translate to ?

Code: [ Select ]
[acronym=This Is An Acronym]TIAA[/acronym]
<acronym title="This Is An Acronym">TIAA</acronym>
  1. [acronym=This Is An Acronym]TIAA[/acronym]
  2. <acronym title="This Is An Acronym">TIAA</acronym>


Code: [ Select ]
[del]This text should have a line through it[/del]
<del>This text should have a line through it</del>
  1. [del]This text should have a line through it[/del]
  2. <del>This text should have a line through it</del>

Quote:
ac·ro·nym (ăk'rə-nĭm')
n.
A word formed from the initial letters of a name, such as WAC for Women's Army Corps, or by combining initial letters or parts of a series of words, such as radar for radio detecting and ranging.


Quote:
Acronym
Word or name that is formed by joining the first letters (or the first few letters) of a series of words. For example, DOS is the acronym for Disk Operating System. An acronym is pronounceable, whereas many other abbreviations are not.


I was under the assumption that periods are not necessary based on the definitions of acronyms.

Rather than 3 bbcodes for each section heading in tutorials.

Code: [ Select ]
[tuthead]Introduction, Conclusion, or Sub-Headings[/tuthead]
 
<span style="font: bold 150%; line-height: 116%; text-decoration: underline;">Introduction, Conclusion, or Sub-Headings</span>

Or maybe

<h2>Introduction, Conclusion, or Sub-Headings</h2>
  1. [tuthead]Introduction, Conclusion, or Sub-Headings[/tuthead]
  2.  
  3. <span style="font: bold 150%; line-height: 116%; text-decoration: underline;">Introduction, Conclusion, or Sub-Headings</span>
  4. Or maybe
  5. <h2>Introduction, Conclusion, or Sub-Headings</h2>

Ok this is going to be the dumbest question ever asked in Ozzu history, but how do we access these new BBcodes when posting? Do we just need to remember them or are they going to be somehow placed into the posting section?

Wow, you know, until I read your post, I had forgotten that buttons existed for the other bbCodes. I've always just typed them myself.

Shortcuts for using bold, italic, and underline in combination:

[bi]bold and italic[/bi]
[bu]bold and underlined[/bu]
[iu]italic and underlined[/iu]
[biu]bold, italic, and underlined[/biu]

Just thought of this one:

Code: [ Select ]
[phpfunc]substr[/phpfunc]

[url=http://php.net/substr]substr()[/url ]
  1. [phpfunc]substr[/phpfunc]
  2. [url=http://php.net/substr]substr()[/url ]

Code: [ Select ]
[anchor=sect1.1]Text[/anchor]


Code: [ Select ]
<a name="sect1.1">Text</a>



Good for tutorials, they could be wrapped around tuthead.
I could also bug you to add them to the sections in the rules, for instance "rules.html#signatures" :D

What if you want to go to the anchor? [url=#anchor]Text[/url] doesn't work...

Hopefully you are asking what we want here so one that never seemed to work was Center or centre never worked in BBCode. Example,

[center]Image[/center]

It may be that things have changed about that as I hav'nt played with PHPBB for ages.

Regarding the youtube tags, would it be possible to have it post the plain anchor underneath the player? I saw joebert does this once, thought it a good idea, & followed suit with my posts thereafter.

I'm one of the ones with videos *cough* blocked *cough* at work, so I have to grab the links from post edit and use them otherwise (not everyone will have that ability!). Would also help with posts like this where all I can see is blank space - little confusing.
