Post question
The table effect...

 11:57 am on Aug 30, 2001 (gmt 0)


I am curious as I have started seeing this lately on the forums here. I will see a post with a table that is a different off white color. I am curious what code is being used as all seem the same from post to post. Are they just using the <quote></quote> tags?

The quote tag just does a single table with border
like this
but I think it's a grey background (haven't really paid that much attention).

Brett did experiment with row and cell tags, but they caused problems and aren't widely available, sort of a beta. You may have seen one of those.

I just updated the style and format for the quote tags this morning.

This is a quote section made with the [ quote ] and [ /quote ] tags. (no spaces).
Just surround the text with the two tags.

There will be one leading return after the initial [ quote ]. If you want to skip that return character, then start your text immediatly after the bracket. [ quote ]

There is no leading extra return space on this quoted line.

The quote comes in handy for imported information. To set it off as an external source.

Also note, that a few moderators requested html support in some of their information posts for fancy tables. So from time to time you may seen some other forms of post enhancement not available to all members. I keep a tight leash on that in order to prevent html incompatibilities. It's ultra important to me to keep the forums viewable in almost all browsers available.

>in order to prevent html incompatibilities

And don't forget that the edit function caused the html to collapse... what a nightmare.

ummm, only does that if you don't have the proper embedded exceptions. It's completely embedded in the code rc (me, jan, and woz)...

Right, so if an admin or mod without those permissions goes into it to make an edit for whatever reason, there's a problem.

Thanks for the confirmation all. Guess I need to learn to "just do it" and not ask some days ;).
