Post by Mulf » 03 Sep 2006 21:09

I'd like to use a quote from Gamespot in a review I'm writing...Can I link to the source using standard html tags?

of course you can. (HTML is what is needed for the reviews.)

Thank you. :) I asked because I've never seen a working html link before in a review, even in cases where a web address is included (without any tags).

That's exactly the point: without any HTML tags.
As a reviewer I use the html tags and they work. ::)

Are you going to review a level? Or what does this mean. ::)
(There are no new reviews written by you yet. Or maybe you have used a different user name...? Have you reviewed Mystery Land by Oxy, and used a different user name? If so, then HTML did not work.)

I tried to ... first time I pushed the "send review" button I had forgotten to pick a reviewers nick, which I then did and it said : "review sent"

Maybe it's still on the way - if it was lost, I have it burnt on CD, (to transport it to the internet café) - nothing is lost :)

I wanted to use <br> and <i> or whatever it was that get's used for italics and <img source= :stunned:> , maybe something else, I forgot.
I don't know if those are standard HTML tags.
I'll look into the reviews in some days and then decide if I need to send it in again.

No, it was not, it was already received. That's why I asked. It was a little bit messed up and the reviewer name was the wrong one.....

Those are the standards: <br> and <i></i>, not the forum's ones: ...

I told my pupils to use this editor. http://www.html-seminar.de/html-editor.htm. Simple and easy to use. If you like to, you have a look at that one (German). Here you can even test what your review's gonna look like. (When you don't need this program, then you'll notice the HTML shortcuts at the end of that page. ;) )

Btw, please send in the review again. Don't forget the right username (reviewer name). Thank you. ::)

<img source=""> should be <img src="(url)" alt="">
<br> is correct for HTML. For XHTML you need <br />, but I don't think trle.net is made with XHTML.

Hej,

not about HTML, but I have a doubt :

I wrote a review in Windows Editor, copied and pasted it into the review text field, but it looks as if there is an empty line between every line of text.

I am unsure if I need to correct that (now doing that) and if so, how can I avoid these empty lines from the beginning.

-----------------------------------------------------
Yes I know, I have written/ am writing almost no reviews. I do sometimes write some here at home, but most of the times I am really not happy with them myself plus I sometimes have trouble rating levels / things :-P

See You

Just spotted this topic. I'm usually now reviewing games as whole, but in case I come across a multileveled game which I feel like writing individual nano reviews for, can I use the <b> tag to specify a new level title in between? :) I think I used three asteriscs in the past, but usually Michael would change that when posting the review. I'm just not sure if he bolded it or underlined it though. :?

That's not html.

The tags <b> and </b> stand for bold.

I know, but it's how I used to differentiate the ingame level reviews back then. Question is - can I use the bold tags to do what I meant? Or should I use the underline tags? Or are we allowed to use none?

Yes, of course you can use the bold tags or if you rather like the underline tags, then you simply use them. That's up to you. (As long as you don't use wrong tags/asterisks.)
