    RZ 101 - Asking "How To" Questions

    Okay, I have no shame.

    I have some questions that might be simplistic to some of you. I'd really appreciate it if you all could give me some answers. The questions have to do with things that can be used when posting here at RZ. I tried the FAQ, but could not find the answers. I hope the answers might be helpful to others as well. Please ask other questions if you have them and they might help me and others as well. Thanks in advance!

    (1) Putting a picture in a post.
    >> I still use the old-fashioned method (using the manage attachments button). It shows the picture as a thumbnail. How do you put a picture in a post so it is free-standing and not shown as an attached thumbnail? I assume you have to use the Insert Image button.... but I still need step-by step help!

    (2) Using Code
    >> I see this used by members when posting statistics. It is really a neat way to post stats and keeps columns in a nice row for easy reading. I have no clue how to do this!

    1) Find the picture you want to put in the post.
    2) Copy the address in the address bar of that internet web page.
    3) Click on the yellow folder looking thing where you are posting (it will say Insert Image).
    4) It will bring up an Explorer User Prompt window.
    5) Paste your web address into that box and click OK.
    6) It will show on your post as [IMG]yourwebaddress[IMG]
    7) Click Post.

    Re: RZ 101 - Asking "How To" Questions

    BTW, the "code" thing is a little more difficult. I can't remember who was testing that awhile ago, but they might be able to help. Might have been TRF? There is a link inside the box where you post where you can highlight what you want to be code and then hit "wrap CODE tags around selected text" It displays as a # when you click the "go advanced" option at the bottom of the quick reply box. IIRC, it was a little more complex than just hitting that button, though. Give it a couple tests in here and see if it works.

    My question: Say you are writing something and you want to insert a link, but want to put a name on it, instead of the link address. Like if I wrote: Take a look at my home. How do I get the word "home" to be a link to a picture of my house? I've always wondered this and never figured out how to do. I get jealous when someone else does it.

    1) When creating a post, type in "google" in plain text.
    2) Highlight the word "google".
    3) Click on the world/link icon
    4) Type/Paste your URL: http://www.google.com

    Google

    5) Tada!

    Code displays tabbed data best, it's called tab-delimited, Delimited data uses specific characters (delimiters) to separate its values (in this case it's the tab key)

    What I do is I cut the code and paste it in notepad and use the tab key to assure that that each piece is separate and lines up.

    Re: RZ 101 - Asking "How To" Questions

    Since we are asking "how to" questions...

    How do you get that little blue emotcom that barfs? I don't see it in any of the selections. And it seems like there are a few other emotcoms people have that are "non standard".
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    When you reply to the post, you will see a selection of emoticons to the right. There is a link there that says "More". Click on that, the barf emoticon, along with many others are located in there.

    Alternatively, you can just type in :barf_: (without the underscore) That will work too.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    What paint meant was that you could type in :b-a-r-f: (without the hyphens) and not have to search for it. If I type in :e-e-k: (without the hyphens) I get this guy

    Yeah, I was hoping if I quoted the code, it wouldn't get recognized. Apparently it still does.

    Reply to this post. When looking at the smilies located to the right, click on the [More] link below them. The "barf" smilies is there. Occassionally I'll search for a new smilie from another board and link it in as an image.

    Thanks for all the replies. I've gone to the "more" smilies page many times but it never occured to me to expand the page and see what was in the 2nd column. Duuuhhhhh.



    Thanks!
