New BBcodes added to the forums!

Thu Sep 23, 2010 4:37 pm

I've added support for some new BBcodes to the forums for everyone to use. You can see a partial list of available BBcodes on the create a new topic/post screen. A semi-complete list can be found below.

If you encounter any issues with them, please let me know. I'll try my best to correct any issues.

Enjoy!

align, anchor & goto, box, captionleft, captionright, goto, glow, highlite, hr2, spoiler, strike, sub, super, table, thumb, wimg, youtube

The above example will make an invisible anchor to the glow BBcode.

Using the goto BBcode to jump to the anchor created:

Good for large, sectioned posts. Similar to the code tags, but this preserves formatting.

EverQuest House of Thule Expansion Details Revealed at Fan Faire 2010
Source: TenTonHammer

Player housing, larger inventories and new zones await players in House of Thule

Sony Online Entertainment made it perfectly clear today in Las Vegas that they are not about to leave EverQuest behind. At last night's Opening Address at SOE Fan Faire, John Smedley announced the upcoming EverQuest expansion, House of Thule. Today EQ Producer Thom Terrazas and a team of seven other developers and designers on the EverQuest team divulged more information as to what players can expect with the new expansion.

Players will have a level cap increase up to level 90. Not only will this provide more spells for players to learn but it will also make easier some of the current content that some players have difficulty in beating.

One of the more fun aspects of the expansion is that player housing will be added to the game. Now players will be able to own their own homes in Norrath. The housing system in EverQuest will share some similarity to that of EverQuest II with upkeep and escrow balances, but there are some fundamental differences too that promise to make player housing a fun and somewhat unique system.

A zone will be made available with 73 plots of land. Players can then purchase the plots and build their homes on them. As an added bonus the plots aren't just for houses. Also available will be lawn ornaments and decorations that can spice up a player's property. Included will be plant life and ornaments. Plots will also be able to support two houses if players wish. Every character can own up to two plots, so there will be plenty of space to build your landscape.

Okay, a while ago I tried playing with the anchor. You can only create an anchor within the same post you reference the anchor? As in, you can't make an anchor in post A and then later on refer to the anchor in post A with a goto reference in post B.

Test goto

It works from within the same thread, on the same page. But no, you cannot have it jump to another thread and goto the anchor, as the bbcode is not programmed to take a URL.

Once the wiki is populated with the Library forum's info, that forum will be removed and then the anchor really won't be needed as much here. Anchors will work with the wiki, as it will use standard methods for implementing them.
