Okay so for new people or folks who have been here a while and never had access to this information I'm going to put it out there for everyone in a easy to understand way. So let's break this down Barney style together on the topic of "posting from a phone"

So believe it or not you can make high quality posts exactly the same as if you would on a computer, it's a real pain in the neck but you can. There's a bunch of commands that you can input in texts to make your posts nice and pretty or make a signature on a phone. So here is the command list that I've compiled over my time here and there might be more I'm not sure but these are the ones I have that I will be going over individually. Ignore the "///" this is to just make sure they don't activate and mess up the list

Command list

Imbed link
[///url=link]words[/url]

Post image
[///img=url] or [///img]Url[/img]

Center image
[///center]url[/center] or center words

[///center] words [/center]

Color words
[///color=color]words[/color]
Colors can be Red, Blue, Brown, Green, etc etc

Size
[///size=]words[/size] (size 1-20)

[///float=right(left)]url[/float]

///
Font list that I know.
Arial
Comic Sans MS
Courier New
Georgia
Lucida Sans MS
Tahoma
Times New Roman
Trebuchet MS
Verdana

Imbedding links
So let's start with imbedding a link into words. So let's say you want to create a hyper link to your gun you will use this code [///url=link]words[/url] after removing the /// of course.

Oddball reached for his Submachine gun and fired at the sith.

And that's how you do that. You can also link pretty much anything you want whether it be images or an obscure stub about a force power used once in a comic from the 1990s from

Images or Gifs
Then we have posting an image. For this we use either of these codes [///img=url] or [///img]Url[/img]

So you can post up that meme or gif you've always wanted to do in that ooc thread. But before you do this remember that the URL needs to end in a png jpg or gif End result will look like this

Centering
Then we have centering an image or words. So we use this [///center][///img]url[/img][/center] or for words we do [///center] words here [/center] So to center a post or words it should look like this.




tumblr_msh8n9lyuL1rwqt2go1_500.gif


Oddball wanted to go and grab his gat then go straight up gangsta on some sith cuz they had looked at his boo the wrong way. Straight outta coruscant yo.



Coloring Words
So here's one of my favorites. coloring words

This is pretty easy to do, to do this all you need to do is this [///color=color]words and junk[/color] and you can color your speeches or your whole post. So it should look like this

"Coming straight outta Coruscant, crazy mother karker named Oddball, from a gang called Rebels With Attitude. When I'm called off I got a sawed off, squeeze the trigger and bodies are hauled off" Oddball rapped cause he was a stone cold G.

Sizing Words
So sizing your words and what not. This has been a real pain for me on my phone, sometimes it wants to work other times it doesn't but I'll show you how anyways. Use this code [///size=]words[/size] (size 1-20) should work like this

Big Words

Fonts
So after that we have fonts and I don't use this often but you might. If you want to use a font use this code and these fonts, they are good for making submissions and posts look fancy.

[///font=insert font here]words[/font]
Font that I know.
Arial
Comic Sans MS
Courier New
Georgia
Lucida Sans MS
Tahoma
Times New Roman
Trebuchet MS
Verdana
Cursive

Results
"Different fonts are cool

Spoilers
Then we have spoilers, that thing where you can hide images or texts that are way too long. For that you are going to use this [///spoiler]words and junk[/spoiler] ends up looking like this



Floating images
Now we are getting into some high end stuff for our last part which is the floating an image feature. The code for that is this [///float=right or left][///img=url][/float] so you get this effect.

robot_chicken__star_wars_rave_by_lazybro

And in the middle of the coliseum he got his rave on, even as people fell left and right it didn't matter. All that mattered was the spice that had been dropped and the glow sticks that were at hand. Some said he died there in battle, others say he lived on to party harder than anyone who had ever partied before.

So that's all I know guys! I hope you found this informational and spread the word for all my fellow phone users!

I really like the effort put into this Oddball however I am often so frustrated with auto-complete, and spelling issues with my smartphone, that even this information, I'd still rather wait to get to a computer and have the mouse and keyboard to do my thing.  Still, this was very informative. :)

You can also get all the pc functions if you set you phone to desktop mode, tis what I've done for a long time now. The commands are okay but they get annoying after a while.

psst! Oddball. Hey! Your guide is super helpful for me. I only have a phone. Also [~i] words[~/i] without the ~ gives you this.

As opposed to normal text. Thanks again!

Instead of the ///, you can use the tag:
[code]CODE TEXT HERE[/code]
