Default Tau Online V8 features you may not be aware of

With Tau Online's V8 website and forums there are a few changes that you probably won't know about, I am detailing them below:

[h3]Header BBC Tags[/h3]
These are used in the same way as the bold and italics tags and create headers without having to add size, bold, colour etc separately.
[_h1]Header 1 example[_/h1]
[_h2]Header 2 example[_/h2]
[_h3]Header 3 example[_/h3][br]
Comes up as (without the underscores, btw):
[h1]Header 1 example[/h1]
[h2]Header 2 example[/h2]
[h3]Header 3 example[/h3]
[hr]

[h3]Gallery[/h3]

If you are a member with over 1000 posts you may add images to the gallery for showcase purposes. Once you have uploaded them you can use the supplied BBC code tag in order to display the image on the forum. The tags come in this format:
[gal_img]#[/gal_img]
The hash is where a number will be.

[h3]Timeline[/h3]

Any member who is logged in can add an item to the timeline. Simply fill in the form at the bottom of the timeline page but don't be alarmed if it doesn't show up, this is because a librarian must approve it before it can be seen by the public

[h3]Posting Comments on the V8 Site[/h3]

When you post comments you must abide by the forum rules also, there are a few other rules that we librarians have devised:
  • No "I have first Comment" or the likes
  • No chatting in the comments as we have a chat facility for these purposes
  • Don't say that the article is really bad or report an error as this is to be done via the report to librarian feature

Breaking the above rules may gain you a 10% warning on your account although most of the time your comment will be deleted/edited appropriately

[h3]Boxouts[/h3]
[boxoutr]A boxout! [/boxoutr]Theres also a special "box out" BBC tag which produces something like this:

To make a box on the left:
[ boxout]Whatever you want in the box here[/ boxout] (take out the spaces from the bbc tags)

A right hand box:
[ boxoutr]Whatever you want in the box here[/ boxoutr] (take out the spaces from the bbc tags)

I believe this includes everything that you need to know, if you have any queries post in this thread or PM a librarian or admin.

Sorck

The librarians are: Lord-General Thunder, Mage, Deraj, crazyguy832, SILK, Thantos, enderwiggin, Rejivar Konj, Droids_Rule, Mr. T. Marine, Darth_Riah, Vice Admiral Sorck, Unholy Harbinger, Odo The Brave, Wargamer, Farseer Tyross

There is no guide but i believe you can upload them here and use the little box at the bottom. If there is a problem (ie there aren't any categories to put them into) then just tell me

You can upload images here:
http://tauonline.org/index.php?conte...ry#UploadImage

When you have an image uploaded, you can use the pre-generated BBC tag in your posts where you want the image to appear.

What is the use of a "boxout" though? I don't really see any use for it (but I'll add it to the list above )

Are they (or could they) - be used to label pictures, FT?

Such as:

["boxout"]

Also, using the tags like that, it'll be easier to distinguish what is the 'description' of the photo, to the main body of the post/ gallery, maybe it could be used for Batreps as well!
