Making Guides



To help others make good looking guides, I am putting together a collection of pictures for use in other's guides.  I have found the original pictures on the internet thanks to Google.  I have done some manipulation in Photoshop to all of them.  In most cases, it was just done to get rid of the background image to better highlight the important information, which is the weapon, attachment, perk, etc.






Introduction to making fancy posts

As a little introduction, I will explain some of the posting tools.  When you are making a post, you are given a white box to type in.  There are a bunch of smilies directly above the white box.  Above the smilies, there are posting tools.  Here is an explanation of a couple of them.






How to get the links for pictures

The method for getting the picture link is dependent on the web browser that you are using to connect to the internet.

If you are using Safari as your web browser, simply right click on the picture on the web page that you want, and click on Copy Image Address.  Paste in your post, message or document to link the picture for web viewing.  See the picture below.






If you are using Firefox as your web browser, simply right click on the picture on the web page that you want, and click on Copy Image Location.  Paste in your post, message or document to link the picture for web viewing.  See the picture below.






If you are using Internet Explorer as your web browser, simply right click on the picture on the web page that you want, and click on Properties.  Doing so will bring up a window like you see below.




Highlight the web address and copy it.  Paste in your post, message or document to link the picture for web viewing.







Adding Pictures


     
Insert Image


The Insert Image tool is used to add pictures to your post.  When you click on it, you will see the following show up in the white box.



It is in between the pairs of brackets, where you must paste the link for your picture.  The link must be a direct link to the picture only.  It cannot be a link to a full web page that contains other subject matter.

When you paste the link, it should look like this:




You also have the ability to center the picture on the page.  To center the picture, or any other type or subject matter, you simply need to highlight that which you desire to center, and then click on the Centered tool.  The Centered tool is shown below.




After centering a picture, in the white post box it will look like this:







Adding Hyperlinks


       
Insert Hyperlink

The Insert Hyperlink tool is used to add hyperlinks to your post.  These hyperlinks can be YouTube videos or links to web pages.  When you click on the Insert Hyperlink tool, you will see the following:



You really have two options for how you want the hyperlink to look.  You can have it be the full web address, or you can have it be a word or group of words.  If you add a link to a YouTube video, this site will display the video in your post after you save it.

The first method will look like this when you put it in.



What this will result in, is something that looks like this:

The second method looks much fancier.  With the second method, you type an = sign inside the first bracket for the url, placing it after url and follow it immediately with the pasted url link.  You then type what you want the visual part of the link to be and insert that between the pairs of brackets.  You finish with the closed brackets, which is always preceded by a / before url.  When you use this method, it will look like this when you type it in:




In action, the second method will look like this:

Photobucket


You can also fancy it up by coloring the link word.  There are five choices of colors, plus the regular white.  The choices are lime, limegreen, orange, yellow and cyan. When using a colored link In the post box, it will look like this:
Code:
[url=http://register.photobucket.com/][lime]Photobucket[/lime][/url]

In action, it will look like this:

Photobucket





Adding Tables


     
Insert Table

The Insert Table tool is used to add tables to your post.  These tables can be used to align items in your post.  This is very beneficial when creating a guide for this site, because it will make it look nice, clean and organized.  When you click on the Insert Table tool, you will see the following:



This can be separated into two parts.


     
      Start Table     
      and     
      End Table     


  Should always be at the very start of your table.


  Should always be at the very end of your table.






Insert Table Row

The Insert Table Row tool is used to add table rows to your post.  These rows can be used to add extra rows of items to your post.  When you click on the Insert Table Row tool, you will see the following:



This can be separated into two parts.


     
      Start Table Row     
      and     
      End Table Row     


  Is used to begin a new row to the table.


  Is used to end a row of the table.






Insert Table Column

The Insert Table Column tool is used to add table columns to your post.  These columns can be used to add extra stacks of items to your post.  When you click on the Insert Table Column tool, you will see the following:



This can be separated into two parts.


     
      Start Table Column     
      and     
      End Table Column     


  Is used to begin a new column to the table.


  Is used to end a column of the table.







An important thing to keep in mind is that you must have either an End Table Row or an End Table Column before the start of each new row or column, depending on how you built it.  Most of the time, it should be an End Table Column.


Another good tip to keep the column widths the size that you want, is to place a picture at the bottom or top of each column that is the width that you want the column to be.  This will help prevent cramped looking columns. 



If you have an uneven number of items, you can center the last item by itself.  Just choose to end the previous row and the table and do not start a new row or column.  Choose to center the last item.



Remember that you should always check out your post after saving it, because the preview does not show you the exact way it will look when it is actually posted.  It may require you to edit and re-edit a few times before you get it to look the way that you want it.  Make sure that you end your columns before ending the table so that your spacing works properly.



If you like the way that somebody formatted their post and want to learn how to do it, you can easily click on Quote to see how they built it.  If you look at the images at the bottom of this guide, most of them are done using a 2 column table.  I used a set width picture at the top of each column to determine the width of the columns.  If I had not done that, it would have made the columns however wide that it wanted too.  In general, the columns will be as wide as the widest information contained in them.  Text will reflow however it wants it too, but pictures can prevent that from happening.



When you combine them all together, you can have a pretty sharp looking

post that has rows and columns of objects that are all neatly arranged, as

shown below.






      ★★★     
     Each column will be as wide as the widest entry     



      Start Table     
      End Table     
      ★★★     
You can make as many columns as will fit



      Start Column     
      End Column     
Proper spacing will make things look cleaner
      Start Row     
      End Row

Center the objects in the columns as necessary




The actual coding of the table shown above

looks like this.
