Wrong thread
Is there a thread for advanced DDMS site tricks? I thought the people in this thread (i.e. you) would be more helpful than just posting it in the DDMS post discussion thread.

Alright you win :P (perhaps next time reply to the comment)
I'm assuming it can be done using simple HTML:
Code: [Select]
<a href="https://www.dansdeals.com">DansDeals</a>

Did I forget to mention? GIYF
Please do us a favor and use proper spelling when using :D

Thanks :)

I wanted to ask because there's no preview button on DDMS to see if the code works. I guess the only way to know for sure is to test it...

Fantastic tool for creating tables - just paste your spreadsheet data and it spits out a properly-formatted BBC table.

I used it to create the tables here in 5 seconds flat.

I believe only mods can do it, that particular example is definitely modded

Is there a way to star a post that I want to remember, so when I will be searching I can just search the comments that I starred?

Perhaps @Yehudaa can let us know if it worked.

Simply no.
I'd recommend 2 options:
Either to like the specific post and then you'd have to go through your liked posts (non searchable).
Or to copy the qoute from the post, and send it to yourself as a personal message, which can then be assigned a custom label. (Also not searchable but how many things do you need to star anyway..)

I haven't tried. I'll go test it on some old post :)

Though my comment has not been approved here, it appears that @Yo ssi 's method worked:

Where is it posted how to change a photo to a thumbnail so that it shows up smaller?

Sorry, I skimmed this thread, thinking it was here, and I skipped it by mistake. Thanks Yo ssi for showing me where it is (and for posting it!)

Having trouble posting a link and it being "clickable"? (Example)

Copy and paste your link below: (no need to add anything in between the "][")
Code: [Select]
[url=HERE][/url]

Is there a spoiler code?
I no longer have constant Internet access, so you won't be seeing quite as much of me.

When mentioning a member's name with a 's at the end (for example), and would like to get rid of the space that's put in-between, simply submit your post and immediately modify it and delete the space.

(Since it will automatically add the members info in BBC, your edit will still include the mention)

Want your link to open in the same window?

Wrap your link with "iurl" instead of "url" as shown:

I'm contemplating updating all the links in my Master Thread of Just Shmooze Threads to open in the same tab.
