Quoting and fixed-width text
Quoting text in replies
There are two ways you can quote text, with a reference or without.
- When you utilize the Quote function to reply to a post on the board
you should notice that the post text is added to the message window enclosed
in a [quote=""][/quote] block. This method allows you to quote with a
reference to a person or whatever else you choose to put! For example to
quote a piece of text Mr. Blobby wrote you would enter:
[quote="Mr. Blobby"]The text Mr. Blobby wrote would go here
The resulting output will automatically add,
Mr. Blobby wrote: before the actual text. Remember you must include
the parenthesis "" around the name you are quoting, they are not
- The second method allows you to blindly quote something.
To utilize this enclose the text in [quote][/quote] tags. When you
view the message it will simply show, Quote: before the text itself.<
Fixed width text
If you want to format
anything that requires a fixed width, eg. Courier type font you should
enclose the text in [code][/code] tags, eg.
[code]echo "This is some code";[/code]
All formatting used within [code][/code] tags is retained
when you later view it.
