Nicely laid out.

Would be good to include a link to the Forum help section that covers some of this. It will help people learn to navigate and realize the forum does have most of the resources they need.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=help;page=post#bbcref

This is found under the help tab, in the top left corner of the screen, then the posting section, finally under references SMF Bulletin Board Code

I did learn something new here though about making different list formats, and tables.

There are always a lot of threads about how to use @xtraelv

I looked for them and couldn't find the threads. There were good threads with just some of the features but none with all of it explained.

It was only after I posted it that I found out from Steamtyme that it is all in the site instructions - never mind - it exists now. (I Could have spent that time finishing another project)

Actually I have already created a thread regarding [Tips] Bulletin Board Codes(BB Codes)(more than what help menu offers), but I didn't get any pleasant comments ( I think I'm a newbie in that time) rather getting a blame from a member for creating a thread(but I didn't get demotivated and move on). So if you have time can you look at my thread and you can add more functions from it.

The thing I want to highlight is some of the senior members(most of them are very helpful including you too) demotivate the Juniors(unless they are spamming) when they trying to help other newcomers to the forum. I can see the clear difference in the way expressing other members thoughts in this thread. Actually you have done a great job "xtraelv"

I have found very good informative post made by
shahzadafzal regarding
"How to add YouTube videos to your post"


1. Get the Youtube video link e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc2en3nHxA4 (Remember this id Gc2en3nHxA4)
2. There are 4 a default thumbnail images to each video the, URL to these images will be like

Code:
https://img.youtube.com/vi/<youtube-video-id>/0.jpg
https://img.youtube.com/vi/<youtube-video-id>/1.jpg
https://img.youtube.com/vi/<youtube-video-id>/2.jpg
https://img.youtube.com/vi/<youtube-video-id>/3.jpg

3. Now to add or embed youtube video, add img tag and replace Youtube Video id

Code:
[img]https://img.youtube.com/vi/Gc2en3nHxA4/0.jpg[/img]

4. Now add URL tag and point URL to actual youtube video

Code:
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc2en3nHxA4][img]https://img.youtube.com/vi/Gc2en3nHxA4/0.jpg[/img][/url]

5. Final result, Youtube video, click to play Smiley





Edited - Added "Insert Vedio" and thanks to shahzadafzal

Sometimes older posts are not that easy to find. I did an initial search of bitcointalk and only found a few incomplete guides. Recent topics are oftennot indexed for a while so cannot be found using google search. The main reason I created the guide is because I wanted to have something that I could direct people to that wanted to use some of the functions but don't know how they work.
I don't usually write "help guides" because I enjoy documenting the history on here and am now collaborating on some history based projects with some others and helping them to get more familiar with the BBCode.

Some of the code shown in the post is not shown in the help guide. (Like how to insert links with text and quotes using an author - which is handy for quoting locked threads)

Certain topics do attract a lot of users seeking merits  - a classic example are the many "Who is Satoshi" posts. Making a Satoshi post can attract the same negative comments.  It doesn't mean you shouldn't make one. Just make a real good one. If you are documenting a new theory - make sure you send me a PM.  Grin
Pursuer summed it up well :

I opened this topic expecting one of those poorly repeated topics talking about Satoshi for the millionth time but I was surprised to see this nice compilation of all the theories so far. it was merit worthy.

I specifically like the "Samsung Toshiba Nakamichi Motorola" thing Cheesy

yeah, like the special tag list that isn't there as I mentioned above (lower-roman, upper-roman, katakana, hiragana, armenian, upper-latin, lower-latin, katakana-iroha, hiragana-iroha, cjk-ideographic , georgian, hebrew) even though it's rarely used even nobody uses it, so just think of it as additional knowledge.

and which I often see when inserting images, it's rare to use width and height properties.
