Forum Replace Codes
Forum replace codes allow users to style their posts, add functionality, etc, such as adding player links, bold text, and more...
Bold text can be used by adding [b] [/b] around text. e.g "This is [b]bold[/b]." would display:
This is bold.
Italics can be used by wrapping text in [i] [/i] tags. e.g "This is [i]italic[/i]." would display:
This is italic.
Text can be underlined by using [u] [/u] around text, e.g "This is [u]underlined[/u]." would display:
This is underlined.
Threads can be linked to using [thread=n] [/thread] tags, where n is the thread ID. For example, thread #324955 can be linked to like this:
[thread=324955]Thread #324955![/thread]. Text inside the tags are entirely optional, you can replace "Thread #324955!" with anything, and it will still link properly.
Test Forum Thread Link
Similarly to Thread Link's replace code, you can link to a thread in the test forum by using [testforumthread=n] [/testforumthread] tags, where n is the thread ID.
Posts can be linked to using [post=n] [/post] tags, where n is the post ID. For example, post ID 545635 can be linked to by using:
[post=545635]Post #545635![/post]. Text inside the tags are entirely optional, you can replace "Post 545635!" with anything, and it will still link properly.
Test Forum Post Link
Similarly to Post Link's replace code, you can link to a post in the test forum by using [testforumpost=n] [/testforumpost] tags, where n is the post ID.
News from Tibia.com can linked using [news=n]post title[/news] tags, where n is the news ID number. This number can be found in the URL of a news article. Search for an article in the News Archive on Tibia.com and copy the number after "id=".
(i.e. https://www.tibia.com/news/?subtopic=newsarchive&id=1180&fbegind=17&fbeginm=11&fbeginy=2009&fendd=19&fendm=12&fendy=2009&flist=11111111 here the id is 1180)
Characters can be linked to by using [player] [/player] tags. The text inside these tags must be the character name - [player]Player One[/player] cannot link the same as [player]Player Two[/player].
Guilds can be linked to by using [guild] [/guild] tags. The text inside these tags must be accurate, [guild]Guild One[/guild] cannot link the same as [guild]Guild Two[/guild].
Code tags around text will display text in a different style. It also adds a horizontal line after it. For example, "[code]This is coded text.[/code]" will display:
This is coded text.
Indented text can be achieve by using [list] [/list] tags. For example, [list]text[/list] would result in:
Bullets can be added to the start of lines by adding [*]. For example, "[*]text" would result in:
[quote] can be added to draw a horizontal line to the post. e.g text[quote]text will display:
Other Replace Codes
These Codes do not work on public forums:
- Web Links [url]''www.website.com''[/url]
- Email Link [email]''firstname.lastname@example.org''[/email]
- Image Link [img]''image link''[/img]
Thread Number Explanation
A safe method of telling someone about a thread is to give them the thread number. When you go to a thread on the forum the website address will have a number at the end, such as 1529596. This number is also shown on the first post of the thread as Thread (#1529596) . So when someone tells you about a post, get the thread number and insert it in the box at the bottom of the forum page where it says "Thread Jump:" and click Go.
