AdminNightStrike December 7 2009 8:26 AM EST

Start any message with the first two characters being > followed by a space, and the entire line will be highlighted as a quotation.


See?
Update: To clarify, I meant one greater-than sign and one space. so, "> ".

MonkeyMandate [Wasting Time] December 7 2009 8:45 AM EST

very nice. though i only needed to use 1 > if this worked

DoS [Battle Royale] December 7 2009 8:47 AM EST

What he means by two characters is the greater than symbol and the space. "> "

AdminNightStrike December 7 2009 8:48 AM EST

Yeah, thanks d8. I guess rereading my first post, that was a little ambiguous.

BluBBen December 7 2009 8:48 AM EST

So this will work?

Nice!

Thanks you NS!

Oh yeah... I'll be abusing this new feature. Expect to see way too many blue bars in every thread.

It does look nice, can we put returns in our quotes though?

AdminNightStrike December 7 2009 11:44 AM EST

Automatically naming the quote originator would require a lot more than the quick regexp substitution I currently have in there. Basically, I just set it to search the message for lines beginning with "
" and replace them with a div with highlighting.

AdminNightStrike December 7 2009 11:45 AM EST

oh.. interesting.... guess my regexp is off a little :(

QBOddBird December 7 2009 11:47 AM EST

This is an awesome little change, NS. Hmmmmm...now we can have skitzo monologues like in LoTR!


Gollum:

No, not very nice at all, my love.

Wasp [Demon Forging] December 7 2009 12:09 PM EST

lol. Good change, will make it easier to see that people are talking about other ppls quotes.... : )

I wasn't hinting to that, I'd just want to be able to quote multiple lines.

Cube December 7 2009 1:26 PM EST

They can also be used to make Headings (Any way to centre the text?). ;)

OK BSS, dish the secret for changing the colours! ;)

Doesn't work with html (for the spellchecker). :(

iBananco [Blue Army] December 8 2009 10:05 AM EST

Share what? :p

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 December 8 2009 10:12 AM EST

<div align='center' style='border:solid 1px red; padding:0.5em; background-color:#CCCCCC; color:#AF0000'>Title!</div>

Magic!

I can read your fancy HTML. Sharing is fun. :o

kevlar December 8 2009 10:21 AM EST

that's neat. so I'm assuming for the colors HTML assigns number codes? You don't just type in "red" "black" "blue"? *has to google later*

AdminShade December 8 2009 10:22 AM EST

Oh yes you can!

DoS [Battle Royale] December 8 2009 10:24 AM EST

<div style="border: 1px solid red; padding: 0.5em; background-color: black; color: orange;" align="center"><b>Oh yes you can!</b></div>


Neat, Shade.

Lord Bob December 8 2009 10:27 AM EST

"so I'm assuming for the colors HTML assigns number codes? You don't just type in "red" "black" "blue"? "

Those work too. Us techies just tend to use hex instead to get finer control over the colors.

For example, "red" == #ff0000, but changing it to #cc0000 results in a much deeper red that has no word associated with it. For most people, the simple words like "red," "blue," or "green" will work just fine. Just make sure you enclose them in quotes.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 8 2009 10:52 AM EST

Can someone with a little more technical knowledge of the manipulation of this add it to the Posting section of the Wiki?

BHT December 8 2009 2:52 PM EST

I very much agree with you LB :)

Great work NS

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 8 2009 4:55 PM EST

gotta try this out!

QBRanger December 8 2009 4:59 PM EST

Personally I would hope threads now are not filled with all colours of the rainbow.

The light blue is very easy on the eyes. Other colours not so much.

Burton December 8 2009 5:07 PM EST

Sweet, CB forums are now going to be a rainbow filled circus with all these colors when more people start learning how to do it.

AdminNightStrike December 8 2009 5:08 PM EST

I didn't add the ability to use html; that's been around forever.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 8 2009 5:09 PM EST

They're just making an HTML border... it has nothing to do with the change.

QBRanger December 8 2009 5:14 PM EST

nice. :D

QBRanger December 8 2009 8:03 PM EST

Most excellent!


This alone makes for a great changemonth.

AdminTal Destra [Forge Of Norn] December 8 2009 8:05 PM EST

AWESOME!!!

Demigod December 8 2009 8:31 PM EST

You can expect a lot obnoxious colors now. And even though NightStrike didn't create HTML, we can still blame him for giving us the idea. ;) Here's my hideous contribution:

QBsutekh137 December 8 2009 9:13 PM EST

Hideous? That's the flag, sans blue and white-stars!

NICE!

Demigod December 8 2009 9:52 PM EST

I was actually aiming for that... then I realized that my HTML skills suck. I used the divider tags instead of cell ones, and I didn't know any way to fix it easily.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 8 2009 10:42 PM EST

/me likes his Modern Mono theme, it defeats all your fancy colors in one fell swoop

Lord Bob December 8 2009 10:47 PM EST

"You can expect a lot obnoxious colors now."

We could always replace the stupid PG rule with a good rule that punished bad quote colors!
