Hi, mods! Can the fanfic review boards be improved? Make them accept codes for (in order of priority): paragraph breaks, previews, quotes, and italics?

Hi! Call me Imran. :)





Props to my beta(s): James!


I prodded James indo doing the line breaks . Basically, all you have to do is just press the enter as you usually do for a new paragrap.

like this.

and then this..

and they will show up with proper paragraph breaks. Hope this helps smile.gif




We'll try to add more features, but right now since James is busy with exams the only things that will get done are the stuff that are high up the list, or very simple to do --- for him smile.gif

Thanks! I tried it (line breaks and italics) and they work now. James, it's ok if you put these at the very bottom of your to-do list cool.gif

How does one separate paragraphs in the summaries for posted stories? I tried making two separate paragraphs in the summary, and while I did simply separate the paragraphs while I wrote it in the text box, but the paragraphs wouldn't come out separated in the story-list page.

I've seen other authors do it so I'm thoroughly perplexed.

Please tell me the hows.

I shall be eternally grateful.

You could always try to use a simple <br> html tag to do this.

Hi! Call me Jonathan. :)




... which implies the necessity of tags, just in case you're not aware that stories have to be uploaded as html. Yes, the break tag would work, but a more conventional approach would be the paragraph tag.

CODE
<!-- the paragraph tag way: -->

<p>This would be one paragraph.</p>
<p>And this quite another.</p>
<p>And this one too.</p>

<!-- and the alternative break tag approach: -->

This would be one paragraph
<br />
And this quite another.
<br />
And this one too.


Both methods would show up more or less like this.

CODE
This would be one paragraph.

And this quite another.

And this one too.


Hope you get it to work. biggrin.gif Doesn't really matter, but it makes it infinitely easier for anyone who has to write CSS if you use the <p> and </p> tags.

Thank you so much, you two! It never occured to me that the text box would respond to HTML code!

::hits head repeatedly::

You've been loads of help. Thank you so much!


MODLY NOTE:

Unfortunately, the paragraph summary box no longer executes html codes. We suggest authors continue using capital letters and characters like ---------- to mark paragraph breaks.

Hi! Call me Nathan. :)




Using different font colors in uploaded stories

Hey, I've seen several stories around here (on the site, not talking about the forums) with different colored fonts. I was wondering how you do that. I experimented with doing code on it but it didn't seem to work: <fontcolor=blue> </fontcolor=blue> didn't work for me. Thanks in advance for helping me with it.

I post in Word format. I simply click on the color under "font" in Word when I want a color other than basic black, and it happens by itself when the content runs through Portkey's distiller.

MOD NOTE: Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, this might not work now that we're having issues with uploading .DOC files instead of HTML.

Try selecting the font colors in your word processor that can save the document as an HTML file.

Hi! Call me Joseph. :)




Has there been any more info on how to change the text color in our stories? I'm trying to show when a character is thinking to themselves by showing it in a different color. It shows up fine in Word, even after I've saved it as HTML, but when it's posted, it's in black. Any ideas?
