I've made this collapse function which you can use on blocks that you want the coaches to be able to close. Not sure if this is the right thread, but...

Example

Code:
[block=group=newsbox id=newsbox]\
[block=blackborder border2 pad5 center width=38% bg=#FAE99D fg=#4D4A3F]\
[block=floatright][toggle label=X block=newsbox group=newsbox][/block]Coming soon to a Blood Bowl stadium near you. Coming soon to a Blood Bowl stadium near you. Coming soon to a Blood Bowl stadium near you. Coming soon to a Blood Bowl stadium near you. [/block]\
[/block]\

I'll put it in the Tips section. Did you manage to post the code of that bio?

You can create a new note and use the bbcode /bbcode tags.

I'm not great with BBCode, can do the basics but that's about it. What I want to do is make Howie's bio a lot neater as it's getting insanely long.

Can anyone help with breaking down what I want to do into each bit of code?

I want to put backgrounds (ideally images rather than just a colour) on each page that the tabs click to from a basic menu, I can make the images for the menu, tabs and background myself but don't know how to make them work.

I also want to have a clickable "did you know" style image that cycles through some info on Howie, such as number of times regen'd from dead, lightning strikes etc.

I also want to do linked clickable pics of players he has injured/killed.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have looked through the examples of other peoples coding but I can't work out which bits do what as they tend to be enormous lists of code for the whole bio.

edit: Also wondered if there's some code that will show when the last update of the bio was made? Would save me manually updating that each time I edit it.

Thanks in advance!

Background images: it's a bit hackish. Basically, you take a large picture and wrap it in an artificially small floatleft container so it expands under the next container (your text). Background images. Also, if you do that, please, don't use .png but .jpg (and you actually should do that for all the pics you use on this site, unless you absolutely need transparency: it uses too much bandwidth and takes too long to load otherwise, especially when you have to download 16 extra large png for the IG portraits Mad)

Did you know: boo for not searching Very Happy

Linked clickable pics of players:

Code:
[url=http...bio.htm][img]http....pic.jpg[/img][/url]

Save your bio locally (you should systematically do that anyway, not to lose all your work after a wrong click), and check the "last modified" date in the properties of the file. Very Happy

Thanks Kam Very Happy

Yeah I missed the DYK bit, sorry! The last modified bit I actually meant to be used as a "bio correct up to DD/MM/YY" format. I manually change this each time I edit his bio, just wondered if there was some fancy bit of code that would automatically display the last date of edit.

Yeah, replacing all the .png of the Sammiches' bio by .jpg was a real pita, but the page loads way faster now. Of course, if you only have a couple of pictures in the bio, it doesn't matter, but for players pics, larger bios, or, like here large background images, the difference is significant.

@ aka: nope, there's no code for that. But if you edit your bio in some advanced text editor, there's probably a way to automatically add that line at the end of the code.

Thanks again, here's what I've done so far. Might still add a DYK function.

All finished! - Click here

I used .pngs, but used this to shrink them. Came out smaller than the .jpg versions.

Howie's cool. And thx for the tinypng tip. Btw, I suggest a slightly lighter shade of gray [sic] for the background. Or alternatively a bright font color 'fg=whitesmoke' or thereabouts.

Yup, good call. I was just saying you should pay attention to the size of the images you upload. Monochrome png images will be smaller than jpg for instance, so jpg ain't always the solution.

Don't know if this is useful to anyone, but I found this way of making images clickable links to youtube videos or similar videos.

Code:

[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPhuefvauuk][img title=Click for video]https://fumbbl.com/i/424048[/img][/url]


I used it on Howie's bio as a clickable link to a cool zombie parkour video. Go to his bio and click on the pixel Howie at the top of any of the pages. The image title bit gives you float text over the image.

I'm betting this is old news, but just in case I thought I'd add it.
