» Cruise Talk » UBB Code
What is UBB Code?

UBBCode™ is a variation on the HTML tags you may already be familiar with. Basically, it allows you to add functionality or style to your message that would normally require HTML. You can use UBBCode™ even if HTML is not enabled for the forum you are using. You may want to use UBBCode™ as opposed to HTML, even if HTML is enabled for your forum, because there is less coding required and it is safer to use (incorrect coding syntax will not lead to as many problems).

All current UBB Code options are listed below.

URL Hyperlinking
If UBBCode™ is enabled in a forum, you no longer need to use the [URL] code to create a hyperlink. Simply type the complete URL in either of the following manners and the hyperlink will be created automatically:
  • Automatic hyperlinking (no UBBCode required). Simply type the URL, as in http://www.yourURL.com or www.yourURL.com
  • Use the [url] code, in either of the following manner:
    [url=http://www.infopop.com]infopop.com[/url]
    [url]http://www.infopop.com[/url]

For automatic hyperlinking, notice that you can either use the complete http:// address or shorten it to the www domain. If the site does not begin with "www", you must use the complete "http://" address. Also, you may use https and ftp URL prefixes in auto-link mode (when UBBCode™ is ON).

When using the URL UBBCode, the UBBCode™ automatically generates a hyperlink to the URL that is encased. It will also ensure that the link is opened in a new window when the user clicks on it. Note that the "http://" part of the URL is completely optional. Also note that you should NOT use quotation marks inside the URL tag.

Email Linking
To add a hyperlinked email address within your message, just encase the email address as shown in the following example.

[email]info@test5324566.com[/email]

In the example above, the UBBCode™ automatically generates a hyperlink to the email address that is encased.

Bold & Italics
You can make italicized text or make text bold by encasing the applicable sections of your text with either the [b] [/b] or [i] [/i] tags.

Hello, [b]James[/b] : BOLD
Hello, [i]Mary[/i] : ITALICS
Bullet Lists
You can make bulleted lists or ordered lists (by number or letter).

Unordered, bulleted list:

[list]
[*] This is the first bulleted item.
[*] This is the second bulleted item.
[/list]

This produces:

  • This is the first bulleted item.
  • This is the second bulleted item.
Note that you must include a closing [/list] when you end each list.

Making ordered lists is just as easy. Just add either [LIST=A] or [LIST=1]. Typing [List=A] will produce a list from A to Z. Using [List=1] will produce numbered lists.

Here's an example:

[list=A]
[*] This is the first bulleted item.
[*] This is the second bulleted item.
[/list]

This produces:

  1. This is the first bulleted item.
  2. This is the second bulleted item.
Displaying Images
To add a graphic within your message, just encase the URL of the graphic image as shown in the following example.

[img]http://www.infopop.com/artwork/footer_logotype.gif[/img]

In the example above, the UBBCode™ automatically makes the graphic visible in your message. Note: the "http://" part of the URL is REQUIRED for the [img] code. Also note: some UBB forums may disable the [img] tag support to prevent objectionable images from being viewed.

Quoting Other Messages
To reference something specific that someone has posted, just cut and paste the applicable verbiage and enclose it as shown below

[QUOTE]Ask not what your country can do for you....
ask what you can do for your country.[/QUOTE]

In the example above, the UBBCode™ automatically blockquotes the text you reference.

Code Tag
Similar to the Quote tage, the Code tag adds some <PRE> tags to preserve formatting. This is useful for displaying programming code, for instance.
[CODE]
#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Content-type: text/html ";
print "Hello World!";
[/CODE]

In the example above, the UBBCode™ automatically blockquotes the text you reference and preserves the formatting of the coded text.

Of Note:

You must not use both HTML and UBBCode™ to do the same function. Also note that the UBBCode™ is not case-sensitive (thus, you could use [URL] or [url]).

Incorrect UBBCode™ Usage:

  • [url] www.infopop.com [/url] - don't put spaces between the bracketed code and the text you are applying the code to.
  • [email]info@test9342J.com[email] - the end brackets must include a forward slash ([/email])
