Figured that it would be helpful to show people how to put hyperlinks, images, etc into posts, as well as change your font type and color.

Here we go:

1, Inserting a hypertext link:

Free stock charts

< A HREF="http://www.freestockcharts.com/">Free stock charts< a >< br >(this inserts a line break)


Just remember to remove all of the spaces between the<> signs.

2. Inserting a chart or image:



To add graphics to message board threads, you type it in the following format without the spaces in the brackets:
< img >http://xyz.com/picture.png< /img ]>

NOTE: I have not gotten this to work here yet. If someone has, please let everyone know exactly how you did it.

3. Tricks with fonts:

a. Bold = < b >Bold< /b >
b. Italics = < i >Italics< /i >
c Playing with colored fonts = < font color="green" > just insert the color of choice (red,orange,yellow,green,blue cyan,black,white)
d. Combining text modifiers just add them together < b >< i > .... < /b >< /i >

4. Aligning text:

Right alignment:

TEXT HERE


Center alignment:

TEXT HERE


Left alignment:

TEXT HERE


The key text is: < p style="text-align:XXX" > < /p > where XXX = right, center, or left

5. Tables (yes, Tables!)

You don't even want to see the code for this - it's not worth the time.

A simpler method is to put "&/nbsp" without the quotes or the slash 4 or 5 times between elements in a row:

Date        Open     High     Low     Close     Volume     Adj Close*
4-Sep-09     1.52     1.56     1.52     1.55     49,272,800     1.55
3-Sep-09     1.55     1.55     1.48     1.51     44,265,200     1.51
2-Sep-09     1.47     1.56     1.45     1.49     80,491,200     1.49
1-Sep-09     1.74     1.75     1.49     1.50     191,202,300     1.50
31-Aug-09     1.70     1.94     1.61     1.76     332,270,500     1.76

This doesn't line up all that well, but it makes data a lot clearer to see and understand
Hope this helps.
