New BBcode for Linking to Sections

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Fri Mar 06, 2020 4:45 pm

Hey all! We've been testing this one for a while, but I found it so useful that it warranted an announcement.

Overview of the "Anchor" BBCode
Ever wanted to link someone to a specific section of a large post or one of the Faction Wikis? Look no further than the [anchor] BBcode:

Code: Select all
Imagine your long body of text is here.

[anchor=tldr]tl;dr[/anchor]
Now there's a hyperlink that'll jump readers straight down to the relevant section!

Example: this very post uses the same code! Click the "tldr" link below to see it in action.

tl;dr
We've added the [anchor=<SOME_USER_FRIENDLY_TERM_HERE>]clickable text here[/anchor] BBcode to automatically scroll to portions of a large page! Simply replace <SOME_USER_FRIENDLY_TERM_HERE> with a word to name the anchor, and the inner "clickable text here" with the text you'd like to display in the post.

Feel free to ask questions or play around with it in the comments below. Enjoy!
