Code: Select all
[align=left][spoiler=spoiler1]text in spoiler one[/spoiler][/align][align=center][spoiler=spoiler2]text in spoiler two[/spoiler][/align][align=right][spoiler=spoiler3]text in spoiler three[/spoiler][/align]


Unfortunately, that made it occur on three different lines:

text in spoiler one
text in spoiler two
text in spoiler three



So then I tried this:
Code: Select all
[floatleft][spoiler=spoiler1]text in spoiler one[/spoiler][/floatleft][align=center][spoiler=spoiler2]text in spoiler two[/spoiler][/align][floatright][spoiler=spoiler3]text in spoiler three[/spoiler][/floatright]

Which was closer, but still separated them on two different lines:

text in spoiler one
text in spoiler two
text in spoiler three



Is there any way to accomplish what I'm seeking to do? Thanks!


I chose the third option.
text in spoiler one
text in spoiler two
text in spoiler three
Code: Select all
[table][tr][td][align=center][spoiler=spoiler1]text in spoiler one[/spoiler][/align][/td][td][align=center][spoiler=spoiler2]text in spoiler two[/spoiler][/align][/td][td][align=center][spoiler=spoiler3]text in spoiler three[/spoiler][/align][/td][/tr][/table]

Here is another one.

Code: Select all

text in spoiler two


That is how you do it. The Float Tags should ALWAYS be before any Align tags.

Thank you both! You both helped tremendously!

The Spoiler counts as 1.5 lines, IIRC.
So your sig would be about 8.5 lines. Which is half a line over the 8 line maximum.

Yep. I also have a bone to pick with the long sentence beginning with "An early-PMT ..." Long boxed sentences don't wrap properly. Rather than put it in a box, but it in a {Floatright} spoiler.

Hello there, welcome to my thoughts.

Yes, my nation does represent a good chunk of my views, deal with it.

My current news ticker:
1418-DZQ-02/1998-MAR-03 RADIO FREE SOUTHEAST ASIA | Charta Politica February polling: Pro-Khilafah  35.6% (PKI 28.7%, SI 6.9%); Pro-Republiken 64.4% (PAN 7.4%, PKB 13.2%, PRD 5.8%, PDDP 37.9%)

So some players have a news ticker that is divided into two parts: a "fixed area" (usually contain date or news organization name) and a "movable area" (usually contains the content of the news). But when I try to have to news ticker next to eachother, it just stack up vertically like this:

1418-DZQ-02/1998-MAR-03
RADIO FREE SOUTHEAST ASIA | Charta Politica February polling: Pro-Khilafah  35.6% (PKI 28.7%, SI 6.9%); Pro-Republiken 64.4% (PAN 7.4%, PKB 13.2%, PRD 5.8%, PDDP 37.9%)

Which I do not want, as they take two lines. I want them taking only one line. Anyone know how to do that?

Also: is my sig compliant? I use mobile primarily, so I'm not really sure. Should I remove the [hr] tag between the news ticker and the last line?

Not a Mod / Admin, but I think I might know what you wanted. I got this for you, hope you don't mind.

1418-DZQ-02/1998-MAR-03

Here are additional words and content to show that it can actually slide around like that, while keeping the date more or less intact.

As for if it is legal? Obligatory not-a-Mod, but I am reading around 6-7 lines on the current sig. With my edit and the slider, I reckon it will go to 8 lines. But again, Not a Mod! ><

EDIT: I would personally remove the [ hr ] tag, since at least for me, I think there is enough space between the bottom of the news ticker and the next line.

No. Yes. HRs are pointless in sigs, particularly when you are separating two items that are already boxed.

Character count for signatures is kinda enigmatic. My signature is over 1000 characters when accounting for all the bbcode, but only a little over 400 in plaintext. The forum seems to not count some/most code so you should have quite a bit of space to spare. I'm counting between 530-550 in plaintext depending on how you count the spoiler.

There really are only small optimizations in your sig if you don't want to drastically change the content. "Greater Cosmicium Politics Hub" can be turned into "Politics Hub". The same can be done to the Military Hub link. "A 1 civilization, according to this index." can be shortened to "A 1 Civilization." with the URL linking to the thread. That spoiler could be eliminated and the contents just be the last line of the sig. Y'know, small things like that.

Recently I've been seeing blocks of color used in people's sigs, these mostly have the gay flag on them. My question is how can I add one of the colored blocks to my sig and how can I do it without it being illegal?

Not Reppy, or a mod at all, but you can use [background] code. So, if I use
Code: Select all
[background=#000000]hello there[/background]
we get hello there.

Combine that with color codes, and you can get blocks of color. Here's a rainbow:

They eat up characters real quick, though.

I feel like commenting that, while I am not a mod nor a techie either, it seems that most (all?) BBCode doesn't count towards the 800 character limit for sigs. Like my sig, including all the BBCode, has 883 characters in it, but my sig still displays fine since the stuff that isn't BBCode and actually displays is significantly under 800 characters.

I'd like to ask if my signature is allowed? I thought it was 8 lines but it might be 8.5

Magical socialist paradise headed by an immortal, tea-loving and sometimes childish Chairwoman who happens to be the younger Ōmiya sister

Mini custard puddings

Strawberry parfait so sweet and appealing,
Little soft plushies and baths in hot springs
These are a few of my favourite things
