Evidently the bbcode from the old forum isn't recognised by the new. So what is the correct SMFese for things like url links, images, quotes etc?

Based on the principle of experiment and see, I'm hoping if I try some here I'll answer my own question

(url)link(/url) -- substitue square brackets for (..)
http://members.aol.c...agridguide.html baaGrid

(img)link(/img)
Posted Image

(code)the code(/code)
php_info();

Does it accept (php) .. (/php)  EDIT: guess so, but no border,  better size than (code)
// comment
if ($x)
    {
    php_info();
    }


EDIT:
ANSWER: So just use simple start and end tags and no attributes

If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.

Please read the BBCode Reference which provides a list of all BBCodes.

Now that's sorted, How do I actually edit my sig?

"Profile >> edit account settings" doesn't give the option

EDIT : Just seen your reply to SA in next topic

Barand, just so you know, SMF has a [nobbc][/nobbc] that will not parse the bbcode when used. So you don't have to use ( ) to demonstrate how it is used. ;)

But the link wildteen88 posted should be looked at. It is rather useful.

Since it was mentioned above about the code tag and php tag...
The code tag will also do php highlight if it has an opening php tag.  For example
<?php
echo 'Hello from colorized php';
?>

I'm happy htmls
<?php
echo 'But I\'m even happier php.';
?>
Ohhh back to the sad html :(
<?php
echo 'php with opening tag but no closing tag';
Also the text size and other stylistic attributes for the code block can be editted in style.css.

Also Barand, you have probably worked it out now, but for URL tags you can also link normal text by:

[url=http://www.nmcmahon.co.uk]My Website[/url]

Which produces:
My Website
OS and Internet Specs:
Windows XP (with SP2), 1680x1050, PHP 4, MySQL 3, Internet Explorer 6 &7 /FireFox 2.0/Opera 9.2

Tutorials:

PHP tags at last! Now if only it weren't for the fact that it used the <font> tag, things would be even better!

The php highlighting is controled by PHP's highlight function which uses font in PHP 4 and span in PHP 5.

i miss the quickedit feature :( you SMF guys need to work on that next
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

You should see a Posted Image icon to the right of any message you can edit.  Its by itself and doesn't have any text next to it.  Try giving that a click and you might be surprised /wink
