    Hey All! If your looking to make super awesome looking threads then youve come to the right place!


    TABLE OF CONTENTS
    PART1: INTRODUCTION
    PART2: The Codes
    PART3: Wrap it up



    • This CAN be used as a reference!
    • Please be patient! Practice makes perfect!
    • At any time feel free to ask questions!
    • Good Luck (:





    HTML
    HyperText Markup Language. HTML is the base code of a website. Written in tags using to set code apart from normal text, HTML tells the browser how to view your website. It’s fairly easy to learn the basics; it’s possible to learn the actual language in an hour or so. Putting the basics to use is a little harder, but time and patience can turn pretty much anyone into an HTML coder.



    CSS
    Cascading Style Sheets. If you thought of HTML as a gift box, or framework, CSS is the gift wrapping. The HTML says, “this text goes here as a heading. This space is a sidebar. This box is the content.” CSS defines what each piece looks like: “This header text is large and bold. The sidebar is blue. The content box is 500px by 500px.”



    PX
    Short for “pixel”. Your monitor is made up of single points called pixels, which are used as measurement increments. Instead of “two inches”, you might use “200px” or two hundred pixels. The pixels of an image combine to show you the whole image.



    PNG
    Portable Network Graphics. PNG is an image format, like JPG (j-peg). PNGs are often used in website work. Instead of using an image with a white background on a website with a multi-colored background, the background can be transparent. All you see is the image, not the box around it.



    CMS
    Content Management System. Simply put, a content management system is a clean, organized file vault for your website data. A CMS can be set to specific user definitions with varying levels of security access to your core files. For instance, a website owner would have a higher security access than someone editing text. Good examples of a CMS are WordPress, Joomla and ExpressionEngine.



    FTP
    File Transfer Protocol. FTP makes it easy for you to make changes to your website on your computer and then upload those changes. Many HTML editors have FTP capabilities, but you may need a separate program, such as FileZilla or Fetch. Some kind of FTP program is essential if you plan to work on a website.




    PHP
    PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor and is a type of scripting language. Sometimes, a developer might want to write a separate file that’s only PHP. They “call” that file in the web page with the use of PHP includes. The include tells the server “get this .php file and put what it does here.”



    CODE
    Code is the universal term used to define the various tags, symbols, numbers and so on that combine to form a program or web page. There are thousands of coding languages and hundreds of web coding languages.



    SCRIPT
    Script is a subset of code. Scripts are the go-to guys that run repetitive tasks like auto-filling parts of a web form. They can also be used for more exciting things, however, like sliding or flipping images.

    Imagine You're a pilot!... your given all these fancy buttons but they are 100% useless unless you know what they do! So lets learn!

    Were going to go button by button

    Lets start with Font. This is going to change the way the Text looks and it can make it look very neat and professional or it can look terrible

    Font
    To get to font you are going to click Font and you will a drop down menu with 21 different fonts to choose! So choose what you like but make sure it fits!

    Size & Color
    Now along with that you have Size and color... Size can be used to differentiate between a heading and just some body text... Along with color which can be used to show caution, or show to mood Ex CAUTION or More Relaxed (:


    Bold
    This can make a body of text not look so cluttered for example lets take this sentence that makes absolutely no sense what so ever and apply bold to it

    " the joe jonas wobbles to the sun because the ratio of nick Jonas is pancake kibble chirp chirp even though William Shakespeare does not appear to apple the globe of the alarm clock".... now...

    "the joe jonas wobbles to the sun because the ratio of nick Jonas is pancake kibble chirp chirp even though william shakespear does not appear to apple the globe of the alarm clock"


    Italics
    Now lets say that you have a sentence but you have some important facts that you want to emphasize within, so your gonna use italics. Use italics to provide emphasis or contrast!!

    Ex:He had managed to eat ten cookies.

    He had managed to eat not nine, but ten cookies

    Note that the first example shows emphasis, the second shows contrast. This is the standard way to use italics, so try to avoid using quotation marks or any other form of punctuation for this purpose.


    How to use Wrap ["code"
    Okay you have a super awesome toolkit to root and you need to input some code into cmd prompt so your going to use Wrap Code. It makes it so much easier on the other people so they can easily copy and paste
    EX:
    Code:
    C:\___


    Quote!
    I want to quote someone in my thread! Lets use Wrap ["Quote"]
    "Thanks to jaboop for being so awesome!"


    Then theres "box"
    This can be used to easily organize some text rather than using bullets or a list.


    This is what it should look like in editing
