Smileys

A GENERAL TIP: Smiley code and other code need be a least a blank space away from any text
For Embedded You Tube and Tweets... start on a new line.

diwataman explains posting embedded Tweets

(NOTE: Posting a TWEET at RT is a little different.. this is for CTH and other WP sites)

I figure it might be beneficial to others to post this here about how to post a tweet in the comment section.

    1. Look at the front page of a given tweeter and find the tweet you want to post.

    2. On each Tweet in the upper right hand corner is the date the tweet was made. Left click on that. You can Right Click – Open in New Tab or Window if you like as well which is a good idea to do if you have scrolled through a long history of tweets and would like to keep that window open so you don’t have to scroll back through again.

    3. Now that you have the new window open you will see that tweet, along with any replies, retweets, time and date of tweet, etc. It will also have its own URL.

    4. Copy and Paste the URL into the comment section. The tweet will show as a tweet in the comment. I will post a tweet with brackets in order to show you the URL and then I will post the URL which will show the tweet.

Posting Embedded You Tube

(Again this is for Word Press site and not here at RT)

When viewing a YT...Simply copy and paste the YT url from the address bar at the top of your browser

Example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arer-Mu8zCo

Simply post and that url will show as a vid:

One problem that sometimes arises is that the http: is actually https: in the link
Simply delete the "s" and it will work.

Embedding a link

(Again this is for WordPress posts, not the same here at RT)


Use the template below:

http://cats.about.com/ is the url address of the link

Text you want is the text that appears in your post


TEMPLATE:
<a href="http://cats.about.com/" title="Text you want" rel="nofollow">Text you want</a>


That example used at CTH will give:
Text you want

Posting Images

Heading <h2>Heading example</h2>

Simple Image post

<img src="url">



HTML Images - The <img> Tag and the Src Attribute

<img src="url" alt="some_text">


HTML Images - The Alt Attribute
The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it (because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader).

<img src="Example.gif" alt="Big Boat">


HTML Images - Set Height and Width of an Image

<img src="Example.jpg" alt="Pulpit rock" width="304" height="228">

The Good Oil from Puddy

Here’s a site that gave me the list of allowed HTML tags…

http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/ques ... n-comments

http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/ ... s.php#L397

The following are allowed to be used by subscribers. (Beats me why they don’t allow the ‘underline’.)
‘strong’
‘strike’
‘q’
‘cite’
‘em’ or ‘i’
‘del’
‘blockquote’
‘b’
‘a’
acronyms’
‘abbr’
‘datetime’
‘href’
‘title’
‘code’

ACHTUNG!

I have experience a problem (bug) posting combinations of smileys.

With the Help of Nettles and the guys at Nettles blog I have at least figured out what is happening and how to avoid it

If you type a smiley starting with < and at any time later a smiley starting >, you create a html code box.. which shows as blank.

Typing: "heart" and "martini" smiley code.....gives <3 and >-I

The <3 and > part is seen as html code, undefined and so nothing shows and all you are left with showing in post is -I

Reversing the order of the smileys avoids the problem

>-I and <3 works fine :)

<3   <>    >-I works

It will show as "heart" then "martini"
