BB-Code

    In this thread, I will show off new BB-code as we get it.

    TABS

    Code:
    [tabs]
    	[tab=Title 1]Content 1[/tab]
    	[tab=Title 2]Content 2[/tab]
    [/tabs]
    
    • Content 1
    • Content 2





    Tables
    Code:
    [xtable]
    	{tbody}
    		{tr}
    			{td} {/td}
    			{td} {/td}
    		{/tr}
    		{tr}
    			{td} {/td}
    			{td} {/td}
    		{/tr}
    	{/tbody}
    [/xtable]
    
      
      
    For tables, it is much more user-friendly to use Table button in the rich text editor. Unless you're a coder, I guess.




    Horizontal Rule
    Code:
    [hr][/hr]
    



    The line above is the bb-code in action. What can be placed inside, I don't know.




    Latex
    Code:
    [LATEX] c=\sqrt{a^2+b^2} [/LATEX]
    





    Highlighter

    Code:
    [hl]Bleh.[/hl] [hl=green]Bleh.[/hl] [hl=blue]Bleh.[/hl] [hl=orange]Bleh.[/hl]
    
    Bleh. Bleh. Bleh. Bleh.




    Accordion

    Code:
    [accordion=]
    {slide=Lorem ipsum|right}Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.{/slide}
    {slide=Morbi vitae|center|open}Morbi vitae turpis hendrerit, bibendum ante vel, sodales lorem.{/slide}
    [/accordion]
    
    Lorem ipsum
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
    Morbi vitae
    Morbi vitae turpis hendrerit, bibendum ante vel, sodales lorem.





    As more code gets added, I will edit this post to display them in code and in use.

    It doesn't do equations. It's a flat dice roller without modifications. 2d20 will roll 2 twenty-sided dice and tell you what each are, it won't add them.

    I remember that the original SV dice roller has had the issue of using the simple and biased rand() function. (Link.)

    Have we managed to avoid this problem?

    Well, if there is a source code you can read it. (Or just post a link to where you found it and I can do it.)

    If there's not, we can read the description and/or ask the author. (Again, post the link.)

      Testing the first!
      {/slide}
      {slide=Second}

      • {slide=Sub-text!}
        Now with
        {/slide}
        {slide=Text!}
        recursion!
        {/slide}

      {/slide}

    So, tables can be put into tabs.

    Praise be unto alethiophile!

    That BB code seems, well, backwards. Why put the long bit inside the brackets?

    Code:
     
    Instead of this: [abbr=expanded]abbreviations[/abbr].
     
    We'd use this: [abbr=abbreviations]expanded[/abbr].
     
    
    Think it'd be possible to flip it around?

    The current orientation is true to the way it works in the underlying HTML, and also to how it worked on SMF. Since the purpose of the new tag is to make old posts look better, maintaining the SMF syntax is indicated.

    Okay, it's not actually a BB code, but here's a new feature anyway: dice rolling.

    Click the 'roll dice' button next to 'reply' on one of your own posts. The result will be echoed in the post itself, and also on the master list here (to avoid cheating).

    alethiophile rolled 5 die of 6 faces, total: 13

    The max faces is configurable, if people really want higher than D100 for some reason.

    The max dice per roll I'm leaving at 10, just because otherwise it'll start overflowing screens.

    You should be able to adjust the size of the dice with CSS. See if you can scale it down some.
