BBCode/Div Help Zone™

Post by Reyn » Wed Nov 27, 2019 5:31 pm


Makes you notice, doesn’t it? There's nothing like a bit of fun code to make your posts look needlessly fancy, but it can be pretty difficult to know where to start. That's what this thread is for; come here with any questions, problems, or solutions related to BBCode/Div that you may have. Want to know how to get a particular effect? Having trouble understanding grids? Have some cool code you want to share with the community? This is the place for you!

Resource List

Remembering how to do certain things with BBCode can be a pain, but there's no need to worry! There are a few threads on-site that can show you what to type to get the effect you need!

BBCode Masterpost: A thread containing every working BBCode element that currently works on RPF.
Div Guide: A thread containing some of the things that are possible with the [div] function. Often updated!
Maxx[2.0]ine's Flexbox Guide: A very helpful post explaining how to use flexbox.
A Guide to Grids: Illirica's fantastic guide on how grids work. This has personally saved my life.
Testing Forum: Test threads are great! Just be sure to ask the OP before using their code ;)

There are also a few good websites on CSS in general, if you're feeling adventurous. Bear in mind that not everything on these sites will work with RPF!

w3schools: A super helpful site containing the fundamentals of div elements in CSS.
CSS-Tricks: Another neat resource, and definitely a site worth exploring if you're into cool CSS tricks.
html-css-js: An online cheat sheet for all things web design- and a lot of it works for RPF too!
Color-Hex: Having trouble finding good hex colours? Struggle with rgba? Then bookmark this site immediately!

Who to Ask

Here are some good people to ask if you're having trouble with anything BBCode or Div related! Of course, you could also just post a question in this thread and have it be answered by anyone who can, but if you're after someone specific to help you, then you could go for any of these people. (If you want to be added to this list, just ask me and I'll put you on!)

Reyn: Made the div guide. Often figuring out ways to break posts. Don't feed after midnight. (Success House)
Illirica: Made the grid guide and knows how to use them properly (and dangerously). (Illiricode)

What's this for?

This thread is for any questions you might have regarding BBCode/Div! If you have an effect you want to get, some code that isn't working, or are just curious about how it all works, then ask away! This thread is open for anyone to respond with questions and/or solutions to existing questions, or if you have some cool code you want to show off. We're all here to help!

(The fancy code was for show, you don't have to respond in kind :P)
