Two questions:

1. Is there any way to eliminate the limitation to the number of smilies you put in your sig, it seems to only allow two or three at best, I would like to be able to add more. (I have this cool idea I want to try and it wont let me :( )

2. When will we get the ability to put smilies in our messages, I mean the real things not the links. I am a smilie freak, i beleive it adds peronality to your messages.

Thanks :D

Not sure about the first part, but the second part I do not understand. I see smiles in your messages. So I am not sure what you mean?

1. If you put too many smilie "tags" in any of your messages or your sig you get in error message telling you there are too many.....try it.......put like four or five smilies in one of your messages so you can see what I mean, it happens for messages and signatures............

2. This is what I mean..............(ode to your caffiene rants this am.....j/k....LOL)

Now on other message boards you would see the smilie itself (like the 20 that you have on the board), not the link, like this one is doing.............

read this and see if it works for you:

What is vB Code?

vB code is a set of tags based on the HTML language that you may already be familiar with. They allow you to add formatting to your messages in the same way as HTML does, but have a simpler syntax and will never break the layout of the pages you are viewing. The ability to use vB Code is set on a forum-by-forum basis by the administrator, so you should check the forum rules when you post a new message.

URL Hyperlinking

If vB Code is enabled in a forum, you can simply type in the full address of the page you are linking to, and the hyperlink will be created automatically. Here are some example links:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/
www.vbulletin.com
Notice that if the address begins with www. you do not need to add the http:// part of the address. If the address does not begin with www. you will need to add the http:// section. You may also use https:// and ftp:// links, and these will be converted into links.

If you want to include the vB Code, you may simply surround the address with tags as shown below. (The vB Code tags are shown in red).

www.vbulletin.com/forum/

You can also include true hyperlinks using the tag. Just use the following format:

Click here to visit the vBulletin forums (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/)

This will produce a hyperlink like this: Click here to visit the vBulletin forums.

Note that once again, you need not include the http:// if the address begins www.

Email Links

To add a link to an email address, you can simply include the email address in your message like this:

myname@domain.com

Note that there must be a blank space, such as a space or a carriage return before the beginning of the address.

You can also use vB Code tags to specify an email address, like this:

myname@domain.com

You can also add a true email hyperlink using the following format:

Click here to email me (myname@domain.com)

This will produce a hyperlink like this: Click here to email me.

Bold, Underlined and Italic Text

You can make text bold, underlined or italicized by simply surrounding your text with tags as shown below:

some text produces some text
some text produces some text
some text produces some text
Using Different Colors, Sizes and Fonts

You can alter the size, color and font of text using the following tags:

some text produces some text (colored blue)
some text produces some text (size 4 text)
some text produces some text (using courier font)
You can also combine all the various text formatting tags. This example uses bold, underlined, purple text:

[u]Wow there's lots of formatting here!

This example produces this:

Wow there's lots of formatting here!

Bullets and Lists

You can create bulleted or ordered lists in the following way:

Unordered, bulleted list:


first bulleted item
second bulleted item


This produces:

first bulleted item
second bulleted item
Note that you must remember to close the list with the [/list] tag.

If you would like to create a list ordered numerically or alphabetically, this is just as easy. You simply need to add a little extra code to your and tags. The extra code looks like =1 (for a numbered list) or =A (for a list from A to Z). Here are some examples:

[list=1]
this is the first numbered item
this is the second numbered item
[/list=1]

This produces:

this is the first numbered item
this is the second numbered item
[list=A]
this is the first alphabetically ordered item
this is the second alphabetically ordered item
[/list=A]

This produces:

this is the first alphabetically ordered item
this is the second alphabetically ordered item


Adding Images

To include a picture or graphic within the body of your message, you can simply surround the address of the image as shown here:

http://216.58.161.130/forums/images/vBulletin_logo.gif

Note that the http:// part of the image URL is required for the code.

You can even create a thumbnail-type hyperlink by surrounding your [img] code with a [url] code like this:

[img]http://216.58.161.130/forums/images/vb_bullet.gif (http://216.58.161.130/forums/images/vBulletin_logo.gif)

This produces a link like this: .

Quoting Other Messages

To quote something that has already been posted, simply cut-and-paste the text you want to quote, and enclose it as follows:


No. Try not.
Do or do not, there is no try.

The [quote] tags will automatically indent the enclosed text.

The Code and PHP Tags

If you want to post some programming source code, or perhaps some ASCII art, which would require a non-proportional font, you can use the
tag to achieve this. For example:

[code]
<script language="Javascript">
<!--
alert("Hello world!");
//-->
</script>


In the example above, the text enclosed in the [code] tags would be automatically indented, and the spacing would be preserved like this:

<script language="Javascript">
<!--
alert("Hello world!");
//-->
</script>
A special case is for code written in the PHP language. If you are posting PHP code, you can enclose the source code in
tags, and the script will automatically have syntax highlighting applied:

[php]
$myvar = "Hello World!";
for ($i=0; $i<10; $i++) {
echo $myvar."\n";
}


This would produce:

$myvar = "Hello World!";
for ($i=0; $i<10; $i++) {
echo $myvar."\n";
}
Incorrect vB Code Usage:

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

crap, it just did what it was supposed to.


Ok, if you want to read it in plain text, go to your "edit profile" in your user cp, and click on the little hyperlink on the left side that says vB on, in teh signature area. Read that.
