All available tags are displayed below any comment box. They change with a users access level (Moderators and Editors may have different options then egular users).

Quote Tags

At the bottom of any comment or forum post, you will see a QUOTE button. Clicking this will automatically post that person message within quote tags for you. However, if you wish to manually quote someone (handy for multiple quotes) you may use quote tags.

 

[.quote=persons name (optional)] or [.quote]

Put what you would like to quote here

[/.quote]

In order to show you the code, we had to add in the red periods. When we Remove the red periods it will look like this:

[quote=persons name]

Whatever they said here.

[/quote]


Spoiler Tags

Spoiler tags work the same way, just replace the [.quote] with [.spoiler]. Use these to hide comments that will reveal major plot points, game endings or NSFW (Not Safe for Work) material.

[.Spoiler]

Darth Vader is Luke Skywalkers father.

[./spoiler]

By removing the Red Periods you can see the proper display:

Spoiler: Highlight to view
Darth Vader is Luke Skywalkers father.

Embedding objects such as flash videos (YouTube, MySpace , Vimeo etc) into posts is a very handy feature on Shogun Gamer and there are two ways you can do it.

  1. Use the [HTML] button in the comment tool bar. Simply click it, paste your code where you want it and click [UPDATE].
  2. Click "Disable rich-text" on the bottom left-hand side and paste in your code. Click "Enable rich-text" when you're done.

**NOTE: The Rich-text editor will not display embedded video inside of it and appear blank. To check if it is working Preview your post or view the HTML to insure it is working.**
