    Formatting FAQ Text

    jmcsparin

      Question 1:  Does anyone know if it is possible to embed the [list][/list] functionality so that you could have a list that looked like

      1. step 1

      2. step 2

               a.  A-step

               b.  B-step

      3. step 3

      4. step 4

       

      It seem to get confused now if you try and embed a list inside of a list like you would in HTML.

       

      Question 2: Does anyone know what the [code][/code] tags are used for?

          It lets you display code.

              That's what I was thinking but when I put HTML code in It just literally displays the html code.  I would have thought it would read the html like a web browser.  so for example if I were to put

              [code]

              <html>

              <table>

              <tr>

                 <td>test</td>

              </tr>

              </table>

              </html>

              [/code]

               

              Would you expect it to display exactly what I put or should it be displaying the web browser compiled version of that?  That being just the word "test"

                  Nope, by design it should show the code, just as you typed it. You'll literally see the HTML code.

                    WHD does not support all HTML coding as we may like it to. It  supports 'BBCode' and this is the example of what you can do in notes or FAQs:

                    Notes can be formatted with HTML or BBCode. URLS and E-mail addresses are formatted automatically as hyperlinks.

                     

                    Supported HTML tags:

                    b, i, u, font, ul, ol, li, br, p, a, img, pre

                     

                    Supported BBCode tags:

                    [b] ... [/b]
                    [i]
                    ... [/i]
                    [u]
                    ... [/u]
                    [color=red]
                    ... [/color]
                    [size=20]
                    ... [/size]
                    [img]
                    ... [/img]
                    [list][*]
                    Item 1 [*]Item 2 [*] ... [/list]
                    [code]
                    ... [/code]
                    [email]
                    ... [/email]
                    [url]
                    ... [/url]
                    [url=www.url.com]
                    click here[/url]
                    [google]
                    search term[/google]
                    [google=search term]
                    here[/google]


                    Peter created a page with some cool tips for BBCode here:

                    Hidden Gems of Web Help Desk - Text Formatting with BBCode


                    However, I have not been able to find how to get tables to work.  Even BBCode for Tables doesn't seem to be accepted.  Feature request?
