In progress Touchable banners

Post by SkyGuide on July 19th 2015, 11:48 pm

I was wondering if its possible to make a graphics request for a touchable banner. Something that you can click onto to make a post on the forum, rather than clicking onto the text? Can anyone give me some advise please? Thanks Smile

Hello,
Do you want to redirect your banners to any topic ?

You should use bbcode:

Code:
[url=YOUR TOPIC LINK GOES HERE][img]BANNER LINK HERE[/img]

Replace all caps in the code.

But if you need it in a widget use instead :

Code:
<a href="YOUR TOPIC LINK GOES HERE"><img src="BANNER LINK HERE" /></a>

Grettings,
YoshiGM

I'm not good with code. Exactly where do I put the code onto the forum? Much appreciated.

Thank you Smile. Also, what do you mean by "Topic Link"? Where do I post that? Where do I post the code exactly? I don't get it.

Hi Very Happy

^ Should explain all. The "Topic Link" is something you should replace with a URL link of where you want the image to redirect.

Hi Very Happy

Well you actually have to configure it properly like I did with mine fufufu...

Code:
<a href="http://rletf.forumtl.com/f1-your-first-forum"><img src="https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1844822295/image.jpg" /></a>

See it in my test forum: http://rletf.forumtl.com/

Alright. Last question please? Would the site you recommended me t go on help me learn how to configure HTLM codes? Because i don't have a clue on how to configure such codes. Or is there another site that you could recommend me going on to learn how to configure codes?

Hi Very Happy

Well... to be honest... you just really have to change the ones in capital letters :/ . You can the basics from w3schools.com .

Thats not easy for me to do that. I copied & paste both topic and banner link into the right sections of the code. I pretty much did what your suggesting.

Are you sure you are supposed to post the code into the forum description to re-configure? Perhaps I am posting it in the wrong section.

Hi Very Happy

@SkyGuide : Si, that's what you have to do bwi. It's actually really easy. No offense but even someone who doesn't know jack about coding can do it Sad.

TOPIC LINK - This is any link you wish the image redirects too.
IMAGE LINK - This is the direct link (The ones with .jpg, .jpeg, .png or .gif) that has the embedded <a href=""> code.

Pizza Boi

In progress Topic not resloved

Post by SkyGuide on July 30th 2015, 4:06 pm

I copied & past the code in forum descritpion and entered the "Topic" and the banner image.Went back to preview forum after having saved, and instead ended up with a catastrophe.

Any advise please? This coding is easier said than done. By the way, the topic title is too long for the code. I copied the site adress and inserted the whole thing into the code. I'm doing everything right, no?

We can not see your administration panel. You need to post screenshots. It is not a good idea to post a link to it.
