Question about posting on Free Republic (no sarcasm please :-> )

Posted on 10/25/2012 7:26:19 PM PDT by ObozoMustGo2012

Clearly I can post and reply to threads, but looking for instruction on other functions. Specifically like posting pictures, quoting, font styles like underline, bold, strikeout, etc.

Is there a FR help section or link I can click on? Thanks!!!

That’s done using HTML. There are lots of free tutorials on the web.

Actually, it’s a very good question. I’m sure I (and other folks) will be able to benefit from reading constructive replies.

No easy way for posting photos and links etc. Gotta do what we all did and learn the html.

Sarcasm tag
</sarc> This is the sarcasm tag. It is not a real HTML tag. It is used to mark your witty repartee so that everyone will know you are making a funny. Type an ampersand - & then lt; then /sarc. An & and gt makes the other carat >.

This is in the sandbox

Yep, as others have posted, you have to visit the Sandbox.

It’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Welcome to FR!

With the idea that you might not be able to find “html sandbox” using FR search, here’s a post from 2008 that probably covers most of it.

If you want to post pix, you want to find in whichever storage tank you use the html prefix that starts with <a href = _____________________________

I’d like to add a question if you don’t mind.

Is there a way to return to a thread later and go right to where you stopped reading before? Some of the fast growing threads get me lost when I open them again.

As the others have mentioned, check out the HTML sandbox. It is a great place to play and practice all those cool tricks you see around here. I posted here for years before I tried out HTML. I don't know why I waited so long!

Welcome to Free Republic!!

If you post on the thread you can go to your history and start from there. That is why sometimes you see someone just post bookmark or read later.
