format n found by accident..

#fORMaTiNG YOuR TeXt#

I havent been having too much fun gettin my text written in RB the way i am used to.. formatting that is..

ive had my text cancelled out like this when i put the “-” symbol between letters – i try and remember not to do that again.

Only just now i found another one.. So i thought to self, that i’d better write all these down here in the journal – for future reference :


  1. NEW PARAGRAPHS
    Press ENTER twice and that will give you a new paragraph automatically.

WHEN ON EACH END OF WORD/TEXT :
eg: * bold * (without spaces)

symbol * = bolds

symbol _ = italic

symbol ^ = small upper

symbol – = cancels you out!

symbol ~ = makes text smaller

symbol + = Underlines the text

symbol * * * = makes a horizontal rule/line without the spaces

  1. TO MAKE TEXT CLICKABLE (INTO URL)

Put quotation symbols " " on each side of the word/sentence you want to make into Links/Clickable and then a COLON (no spaces) straight after, plus the url ; http://

EXAMPLE (i’ve added spaces in between the symbols so that you can see the text – but NO SPACES

  1. ADDING GRAPHIC & MAKING IT CLICKABLE (LINKED)
    for larger pics you want to show, its a good idea to post the Thumbnail size,
    and making the graphic clickable to a larger size.

To to that just add the :http://website.uwant.url right after the ending exclamation ! mark of the graphic link

  1. NEW! Adding an ALT equivalent to your image
    so that when you hover mouse over the image you can read the title of image

example (hover mouse over the button):
ADD ME/BE MY FAN at FACEBOOK

add the title of your image in a bracket, for example (IMAGE TITLE) in between the last letter of the image URL and the ending exclamation symbol. look at image below


  1. HEADER TEXT (Large fonts)
    add symbol # to each side of the word/sentence for header size font.<br> but this seems to work only as header, meaning its gotta be the first sentence/text, like a header. i used it up to in the text that says “Formating Your Text”

eg : # Is bigger better? # no spaces


MAKING BULLET/LIST

  1. Make new/update CheatSheet soon done!

TEXT GENERATOR

  1. keong has found this link to TEXTISM a Text Generator that can help you further with formating style that RB uses.

For anyone who uses Firefox and has Greasemonkey installed, Dave Pearson has created a script that replaces the existing hints on RedBubble with the cheatsheet
