[font=Courier][u]To view the NScode used to create this dispatch, [url=http://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1/raw=1]click here[/url].[/u] All dispatches have a "Raw" link at the very bottom right that allows you to view their raw NScode.[/font] [box][b][font=Times New Roman][size=180]This is a test, appropriately enough![/size][/font][/b][/box] [floatright][img]http://www.nationstates.net/images/flags/Australia.png[/img][/floatright] There are many BBcode/NScode tags to be implemented. For example, this paragraph is testing floating an image to the right. Hello, image! [tab=60]This is indented a little, with the tab code.[/tab] Moving on, we have a table. Notice the first row is automatically nifty-fied. [table][tr][td]Hello to the first row[/td][td]Next cell[/td][/tr] [tr][td]Second row[/td][td]Next cell[/td][/tr] [tr][td]Third row[/td][td]Next cell[/td][/tr] [tr][td]Fourth row, which goes on at some length about nothing. It also has a line break in it. Here it comes. Ready? Okay!! Here it is!! See?[/td][td]Next cell[/td][/tr] [tr][td]Hovering over a row highlights it[/td][td]Not bad, eh?[/td][/tr] [/table] A link to [url=http://www.nationstates.net/page=news]the News page[/url] looks like normal, because it's internal to the game. But a link to [url=http://www.maxbarry.com]an external site[/url] gets a little icon to signify that. [u]Minor bug:[/u] links to subdomains like [url=http://liberal.nationstates.net/]liberal NS[/url] are treated as external. [url=http://forum.nationstates.net/index.php]Forum links[/url] have their own little icon. You don't need to use tags if you're simply pasting in a link to somewhere on NS: it gets automatically URL-ified, like this: http://www.nationstates.net/region=lazarus#rmb ...or this: http://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=170154 [hr] Naturally, we support the common NATION and REGION tags. The very first region in NationStates was [region]The Pacific[/region]. I am [nation]Testlandia[/nation]. Or [nation=short]Testlandia[/nation] for short. But you can simply call me [nation=short+noflag]Testlandia[/nation]. You can use UTF-8 characters natively. See: 𝄞 [hr] [b]Now in testing:[/b] Spoilers! These come in two forms: [spoiler]The kind with no special title set.[/spoiler] [spoiler=Super Advanced Spoiler][align=center][box]The kind that do have a title set. This one has a few other tags inside the spoiler to make it extra fancy: the BOX and ALIGN tags, as well as having a title set with SPOILER=title. But you can't embed a spoiler within another spoiler![/box][/align][/spoiler] [hr] [b]Lists![/b] You can have nested [i]and[/i] independent lists. So this works: [list][*]First item [*]Second item [list][*]sub-list item 1 [*]sub-list item 2[/list] [*]Third item [/list] ... and so does this: [list=i][*]List style here is 'i' [*]You can also have '1' for numbers [*]And 'a' for latin [*]Plus 'A' or 'I' for as above, only capitalized[/list] [background-block=#DADAD2]A "fake" list, with background: • One • Two • Three • Four • Five [/background-block] If you screw up a list, the formatting will break your dispatch, but not the whole page. For example: [list][*]Here is a list that [*]I should have closed it with a /list tag [*]But I forgot. Now everything below is in the list! Oh oh! Luckily, though, it doesn't screw up the entire page.
