OK, I have searched around but I can't seem to locate any info on how to create the spoiler tags like I see people putting in their posts. Anyone willing to give a guy a hint? rotate.gif
Mr. Mage
type in "["spoiler] and "["/spoiler] (but without the quotation marks) and the text goes inside the tags...
Branmac
Excellent! I was sure it was something simple like that but I just couldn't seem to find it. Much appreciated.

It's the 'TM' trademark one that I always forget and have to look up.

What is that one, anyway? I ended up having to save that one to my DSF notepad to use it.

Do you mean this one: ? It is <ALT>0153 in Verdana.
Cain
Thank you, but pretend like you're speaking to someone who's almost completely computer illiterate. How do I make one?
Bull
Hold down the Alt key, and type 0153, then release Alt. The TM symbol should pop up.

Similarly, Alt-157 makes the Nuyen symbol.

Nope, it makes a window full of Strawberry Shortcake posters pop up. Oh, wait, that's the Ctrl key. Let me try again....

No luck. frown.gif

Hmm... are you typing in an "Add Reply" box, using the standard font? (ie. you didn't change anything before starting to type?)



Yup. Works for me.

Hmmm... are you working on a PC or a Mac?
Cain
Standard "Add Reply" box, PC running Windows 7 Ultimate.

Running windows 7 home premium here with no issue. , , , etc. Alt codes for the win. You can find the alt code for any special character at this page:

http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/referenc...II-Code-Huh.htm

Just as mentioned above, hold Alt, then type (in order, relatively quickly) the number for the symbol you want, then let go of Alt. So keypresses for the symbol would look like this:
Press Alt & hold
Press and release 0
Press and release 1
Press and release 5
Press and release 3
Release Alt

Ignore any plus signs when people are mentioning codes.

One minor note, you must have NumLock ON and use the NumPad to type the numbers. The number row does not work.

That could be it. Hold on....



Yup, that was it! Thank you for helping the computer illiterate!
Bull
Eh, sorry, I didn't event think about that! I used 10-key typing at my last job so long, I automatically use it to type in numbers almost all the time now.

This would appear to have been a case of the blind leading the blind. I didn't think of that problem, either. I'm glad it's working now.

Just TM in parentheses () works as well

Thanks for sharing the easier ways of doing those,now i can actually use those without having to plug in a different keyboard as my minikeyboard doesn't have a numpad.

If you really want to do it the hard way, there is a numpad on your mini-keyboard (if you're on a laptop that is) where you'll have to press the function button in addition to the combination.

In a desktop and the keyboard really doesn't have a numpab.
