So I've been frequenting the lick section of this site recently and I've noticed, as I'm sure many of you have as well, that a lot of folks do not know how to use the most common syntax on this site. So I'll do my best to explain how to create proper
bold words, italics, underline and
There are five tag lines you need to know.
Each tag must be place inside brackets. For example, if the letter "o" was a tag line, you would place it inside brackets like so, [o].
Each tag line needs a open and a close to tell the website when to start the desired action and when to end the desired action. For example, if "o" was a tag line for making characters really big, you would type, [o]I WANT THESE LETTERS TO BE BIG[/o].
Note the forward slash, "/" before the "o" in the ending part of the tag line. The forward slash tells the website you want to end the tag line "o".
So, getting to the point, if you want to type a tab, here is how you would do it.
You would type "[" then the word "tab" then "]". After you are finished typing your tab, you would type "[" then "/" then the word "tab" and finally, "]".
Your end product should look like so,
The same thing applies with using the bold tag line (b). Bold characters will look like this.
Characters in italics will look like this.
Underlined characters will look like this.
Headings will look like this.
Once more, (and do not include the spaces!)
for tab type. [ tab ] your tab here [ / tab ].
for bold - [ b ] BOLD [ / b ]
for italics - [ i ] Italic [ / i ]
for underline - [ u ] Underline [ / u ]
for headings - [ h ]
Heading[ / h ]
Not sure how I could make this any simpler. Hope this helps people out. If you still do not understand just let me know and I'll try to explain it better.
So I thought I would go ahead and give a quick example of some very basic HTML stuff.
Here is a little practice document I typed up earlier this morning. If you download an HTML editor like Notepad++ or Evrsoft First Page (Download), you can create the following script or create your own.
Anyway, here it is.
What are ya trying to up your lesson count?!
Nope; I don't feel the need to "up my lesson count". I stated in the beginning of the lesson that this was to help people understand the syntax for tabs and other features of THIS site. So, while you are right, this lesson does not contain anything related to music, it does contain material relevant to this site.
Slinger! You must have thought, "this guy can't be serious," C'mon! Of course it's a legit lesson, I was only busting your balls.
