How to do some formatting little things in Dev1galaxy Forums

title: How to do some formatting little things in Dev1galaxy Forums
---
I starting writing the text below preparing to post this post of this topic:
Heads, the libre privacy distro, some basic usage
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1047#p1047
and then I realized it probably deserves it's own topic.
--

Concerning the \[code\]\[\/code\] that golinux reminded me was missing, in the post to which my post above is the reply to. (And I also hope people who open a topic will be automatically subscribed to the topic they open ;-) ... )

((
Also I can't get the  ":-)", was first there, nor ";-)", is now there, above into a smiley... So another formatting issue there...
SOLVED:
You just don't use the "-"
wink
smile
))

I tried, in this one of posts:
Discussion about heads
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1038#p1038

to get it that the url is inserted, so that the lines in the quote contain a link. Just find the lines around what appears like (but is different in the code):

I think that's ng0 wrote:

And I couldn't insert the url:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Overlay:Yo … heinternet under the text "I think that's ng0" ("who" is missing, I'll correct that now...)

In Gentoo Forums and (I think also Grsecurity Forums and Debian Forums) you can do it.

An example:
More non-Decryptables (from Mozilla Cloud)
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1 … ml#7848104

Find:
Mozilla developer Andrew Sutherland wrote:
and see that not only "Mozilla developer Andrew Sutherland" is clickable (urgh, the link is to the Schmoog the Schmoogle), but also the name "Andrew Sutherland" is of its own color.

So I was wondering can that (and those other mentioned) be done in this forum?

Regards!

Re: How to do some formatting little things in Dev1galaxy Forums

dev1galaxy only uses BBCode, which you can find documented following the BBCode link below the Quick reply box, where it says "BBCode: on". The "BBCode" text is a link, to
https://dev1galaxy.org/help.php#bbcode which documents the extent of available markup.

Also, there is a Profile tick box in the "privacy" section for opting-in on getting subscribed to your topics. It might be possible to have that as default, and rather "force" people to to opt-out instead.

Re: How to do some formatting little things in Dev1galaxy Forums

Thanks! (and it was too close, some of it, so much that it's unreal how I missed it)
But...
But I didn't find the option to get a url into the quote's header, like on the Gentoo Forums link as I explained (see my previous post to this one). Can that be done?

If I find out there's a way to do it, I'll post it for everyone to learn.

And another little issue. Often one needs to see all of her/his posts.

E.g., I often don't remember in which subforum I posted some particular post, but remember I posted some detail incorrectly in that post.

It could be again half a click away, but I simply haven't found it yet...

Where is the list of logged in user's own post for her or him to see listed?

Go to your profile page

At the bottom there are three choices:

Show all topics - Show all posts - Show all subscriptions

Thanks a bunch! Like I said, it was a screenful away (but I'm poor sighted).

BTW, the link I was given in email:
http://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1075#p1075
^^^
(HTTP)
But (good news, owe it to forum maintainers or to Palemoon ---which I use--- devs, don't know): when I opened it in my browser and went for my profile, for which I needed to log in, what happened is what should happen:

it turned into HTTPS. smile

Good to see!
