View Full Version : Thanks & asking again...

Second, am asking again, 'cause I am s l o w ..... :rolleyes:

" Am I doing something wrong, or are we just not able anymore to put a special word or phrase as the "address" for a link? Like the one I posted on Goober of the Week; I expected to just put his name on to show up as the link, but instead have the actual long address (is that an URL?).

Also, is there any special reason why I can't copy & then paste my little icon guys on here? I have a list of favorites I keep in a Microsoft Word file on my desktop. It's a list comprised of this:
http://world-of-smilies.com/wos_sonstige/ff0.gif (http://world-of-smilies.com/wos_sonstige/ff0.gif) ...= http://world-of-smilies.com/wos_sonstige/ff0.gif
BUT, the only way I can use copy/paste is if I've opened in IE instead of Firefox. Any way to get around that problem? "

Huh. Well... I can't figure out how you're copying and pasting from Word in anything (including IE). Maybe email me your file. That shouldn't work at all. :)

Putting a word in the URL (yes that's right) ... you have to hit "go advanced"

Then, type in whatever word you want to show up. In my example, I typed in "Bob the Cat."

Select the words you've typed in with your mouse.

Hit the link button: http://www.geekfest.com/images/editor/createlink.gif

That will pop up a box where you can enter your url and the words "Bob the Cat" will be linked.

AH HAH!!! Remember with the old setup, a box popped up & asked you what you wanted to call the link; that's what I was looking for. It took a bit, but I finally got it; I used Born Here's graemlin post here to try it out.... ;)
Without having a line under the "name", you really can't tell unless you scroll your mouse over it.

New question....... what do I have to do to use a "marquee" on here? The usual "formula" doesn't seem to work.

I'm confused; why shouldn't a Word file list work? I started with Notepad & it then switched over to Word. For me, it's just a "piece of paper to write my list on", so to speak. :rolleyes: :D

Hopefully, marquees don't work on the new format.

Maybe we could have a "marquee forum"?:rolleyes:

Marquee (http://www.staxowax.com/marquee.html)

This is a test of the emergency vBcode system. This is only a test.

It was a test. I had never used that method of posting a link before and wanted to try it. It worked!:cool:

Maybe you....O I C, but I don't........ ;) :rolleyes:
I LOVE marquees.... to a point. Just a nice sliding row of icons is fun. Nothing gaudy or HUGE, just one average size row would do me fine. :)
So what is HTML & how come it's not enabled? It's got the little < > thingies up there. And I thought that had something to do with email..... :rolleyes:

If'n ya figger out how ta do them markies, I already figgered out how to kill 'em in Firefox. So, markie away!

But I don't think you can do them without HTML code enabled. Only vB Code (http://www.geekfest.com/misc.php?do=bbcode) is allowed.
