Bold Words in Rules and History


Bold Words in Rules and History

The quirks of the Message Board make this post a lot clunkier than I'd like, but here it is anyway.

Realize that the actual "Less Than Sign" and "Greater Than Sign" do not show up in Message Board posts.

LT = Less Than sign
GT = Greater Than sign

Did you know that if you put this:

LTstrongGT Words In Here LT/strongGT

around any words on the Rules and/or History and/or "Homepage Story" pages in a Custom League, the Words In Here would come out bold-faced, while the "tags" LTstrongGT LT/strongGT would disappear?

Headers are other useful bold-faced "tags":
LTh1GT Words in Here LT/h1GT
LTh2GT Words in Here LT/h2GT
LTh3GT Words in Here LT/h3GT

This is part of my vision quest to have clearer, more concise Rules in all leagues. Thank you, and may your best HR hitter come up lame against my teams.

Re: Bold Words in Rules and History

Thanks for this.

Is there a list of coding that we could collectively create? I know I've seen some formatting in others' Rules that would be nice to emulate.

Re: Re: Bold Words in Rules and History

I've updated my original post to expand the possibilities a bit.
Trying to keep the original post simple and straightforward, amid the clunky language needed.

Any html inline style tags will work on text in Rules, History, and Homepage Stories.

Even relatively simple coding like inline styles can be very confusing to someone without experience (and with experience), so I'll leave the list at headers and strong.

I don't recommend getting too detailed for anyone who hasn't coded html, as it can be a real time suck, but if you know what inline style tags are and know how to implement them, there's several helpful uses when writing rules or history or stories.

Re: Bold Words in Rules and History

This is an excellent idea. Is there any way this could be implemented?

I confess to having absolutely no idea what Sol is talking about, I am computer semi-illiterate and do not doubt what he is saying for a minute, I just don't understand...

Re: Re: Bold Words in Rules and History

It is implemented, skooler.

You just have to put the tags enclosing whatever words (in Rules, History, or Homepage Stories) you want in bold-face or want to be header-size text.
