Works for videos, too.

Correction: I don't think it does.
EDIT: Or maybe it's just that the [youtube] tag no longer works, so there's no way to use it.

Looking to share a search result but can't seem to find a non-generic link?

Once you've made your search, click "Search Results" (highlighted below) > and copy the link of the page.


Don't click!

Bonus: hit "Search" to edit the search details. (Won't work for an in thread search*)




*On a more advanced note if you'd like to search with specific parameters in a specific thread, you can do so by adding in the url any of the following:
Code: [Select]
&userspec=*
Code: [Select]
&sort=relavance|desc
Code: [Select]
&sort=first_post|desc
Code: [Select]
&sort=last_post|desc
Code: [Select]
&minage=0
Code: [Select]
&maxage=9999+more :)
(In place of "desc", "asc" can be used)

So for example this will search just in this thread:
Code: [Select]
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=120133.0;action=search2&search=picture&userspec=Yo%20ssiAnd this will search in the whole forum:
Code: [Select]
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?action=search2&search=picture&userspec=Yo%20ssi

How does one hyperlink to a tweet without embedding the tweet?

This apparently was useful to some, so it gets a repost here.

Spoiler

Code: [Select]
[acronym=The answer to today's wordle is..]Spoiler[/acronym]

It works by hovering the mouse over the spoiler. On mobile just quote the post and you'll see the spoiler.

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)
Interestingly, I just quoted @Yo ssi 's post here in response to a post that used a period right after a tag, and somehow when I quoted the post, it did tag properly in the quote, even with a period right after it.

Why did that happen?

Because the original post didn't tag them properly

My question was why it did tag properly in my quote. There was still a period after the tag, and I did not quote and then modify my post to fix it.

Probably OP used Tapatalk, when you quoted in the regular system it cought the correct user.

Meaning my tip there probably isn't needed if the system will catch the correct user even with a 's after it

Confirmed
