Code!

Postby Steve Spurrier III » Fri Feb 03, 2006 10:08 am

I was wondering why I can't get the code function to work? Is it something I'm doing wrong?

Code: Select all
Dickerson  1465
Martin     1327
Smith      1262
Portis     1258*
Sanders    1189
James      1184
Payton     1179
Bettis     1116
Allen      1081
Dillon     1073
Faulk      1065
Dorsett    1018
Alexander   994
Brown       964
Dunn        912
Harris      846
Simpson     776
Riggins     690
Barber      463
Holmes      459


From what little I understand about the BBCode, this should produce straight columns (and that's how it works at the Nationals message board I am a part of). Is it done differently here?

I believe it has to do with the fact that the font inside the code should be Courier (the same font that we see when we type our message).

Thanks for any help.

Just bumping this to see if there is any progress. If it is a problem that can't be fixed, or is too time-consuming, just let me know and I'll stop bothering everyone.

Thanks!

The code function works! Check it out:

Brunell     42  111  0
Thrash       1    8  0

It's hard to line up because the text in the reply box is a different font than the one that appears once the message is posted (Courier), but it does work. Fantastic!

And yes, I do love having my own private thread.

You could just set your Notepad font to Courier... type the list there and cut and paste... best I can offer I'm afraid.

There may be a couple of things that didn't work or didn't work properly before, that will now. :celebrate:

The old forum was based on someone else's template modified to suit our needs. This time I actually just built my own template from scratch (and from the original). So I have hopefully removed all poltergeists, but now if things get messed up I won't be able to blame anyone else. :wink:
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

SSIII, you will win many a debate on this board now, with your bunches of statistics arranged in well-lined columns.

Sadly, I do...and I couldn't agree more.

Yeah, but did you pick up on the innuendo? Not nice... :wink:
