The link to the list of icons never has worked for me, but I looked around there today and did you know all of these icons are available for your enjoyment!

(they can also be modified to be larger, change color, or even spin!)






















Code: Select all
[icon]arrow[/icon]
[icon]bell[/icon]
[icon]bookmark[/icon]
[icon]calendar[/icon]
[icon]globe[/icon]
[icon]comment[/icon]
[icon]flag[/icon]
[icon]circle[/icon]
[icon]heart[/icon]
[icon]lightbulb[/icon]
[icon]plane[/icon]
[icon]smile[/icon]
[icon]money[/icon]
[icon]thumbs-up[/icon]
[icon]coffee[/icon]
[icon]lemon[/icon]
[icon]trophy[/icon]
[icon]paste[/icon]
[icon]star[/icon]
[icon]double-angle-down[/icon]


Nate explains how to make them spin in this post -> here by adding "icon-spin" to whatever icon you're working with.



Code: Select all
[color=darkcyan][size=200][icon]smile icon-spin[/icon][/size][/color]

Did you know you can turn an image into a link?

For example:

Code: Select all
[url=https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/index.php][img]https://waylandlibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/yws_logo1-300x157.png[/img][/url]

Some people have asked me how to post text-based smileys without activating the emoticons or full-out disabling them, so I thought I'd share the knowledge! Below is an example of what I mean:

    :D vs. :D
    :) vs. :)
    :( vs. :(
    ;) vs. ;)
    :o vs. :o
    :P vs. :P

The solution is simple: interrupt the code! Simply insert [i][/i], [b][/b], or [u][/u] (or whatever BBCode you want, really) between the smile.

Here is a typed out example:

Code: Select all
:[i][/i]D
:[i][/i])
:[i][/i](
;[i][/i])
:[i][/i]o
:[i][/i]P


I hope this helps!

If you want to test it out, feel free to drop some smiles on your wall. :)

I won't try to summarize how to use the list code in this post, but I did want to share a link to the helpful guide that @Vincian made on the subject! Here's a link to an in-depth guide on everything list-related - from indenting to what symbol shows up in the list. It's really helpful, so I highly recommend checking it out! :)

Hello. When I copy paste something on YWS from any other app, the font is not copy-pasted. How to copy paste including the font?

@ForeverYoung299 Unfortunately you can not usually copy paste font type - I've sometimes seen people successfully copy-paste some types of font into the publishing center but I'm not quite sure what they're doing to do that.

To preserve your font style you can upload your text as a picture or use a site like fancy font generator online (which seems like it should be used sparingly because it messes with the site coding and often gives you an error report, but gets you cool fonts 𝚕𝚒𝚔𝚎 𝚝𝚑𝚒𝚜 or 𝓁𝒾𝓀𝑒 𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓈 )

Thought these would be good to add to this thread! Throughout the years Nate has added a few neat things we can do with font types! :D

Harry Potter Text


Code: Select all
[potter]Harry Potter Text[/potter]


Super Spooky Scary Text


Code: Select all
[scary]Super Spooky Scary Text[/scary]


Tis the Season To Be Jolly Text
Code: Select all
[snow]Tis the Season To Be Jolly Text[/snow]


honestly no clue about this one, but it lets you type in large serif font
(ha does not show as serif font on my phone, but does on my computer ~ so, no clue there)
Code: Select all
[pokemon]honestly no clue about this one, but it lets you type in large serif font[/pokemon]


Enjoy these! :)

You may have been in search for the list of all the YWS Smilies available, all in one place - well your search is over! :) I think this is the whole list of the smilies that one can use on YWS. Of course certain sections of the site also allow emojis from your phone or copy-pasted, but these ones are all the ones in the site-coding as far as I know.

(These are also available if you click "full reply" then "view more smilies" and then click through the list - and if you don't want to count the smilies in order to find the image code, just right click it, click "copy link" and then if you paste the url you will see the code at the end of the link) ;)

Another way to track down the code for the smilies is to go to this thread -> All 170 YWS smilies

Hmm this is a new one I haven't seen before, but it appears that images can also be made tiny using BB Code - >

Code: Select all

[fimg=25,25]https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/images/gifts/dory-icon.png[/fimg]


If you want to use the images of YWS Gifts or YWS Trophies, you can always right click the image and choose "copy image address" -> if you then modify the image code with "[fimg=25,25] and end with [/fimg.] it appears that it makes the image small.

Here is the new wordart introduced by Nate recently, it's very cool and I know many people would love to use it!

Normal
Code: Select all
[wordart]Normal[/wordart]


Define your own color gradient
Code: Select all
[wordart=blue]Define your own color gradient[/wordart]


List of possible colors!(default is purplish pink)
Spoiler! :

coral
salmon
pink
yellow
green
seagreen
cyan
skyblue
blue
steelblue
slategray/slategrey
gray/grey
default


Mix color gradients up
Code: Select all
[wordart2=red,green]Mix color gradients up[/wordart2]


Some cool combos, introduced by Spearmint!

Spoiler! :
pink + yellow
pink + skyblue
coral + skyblue
cyan + gray/grey
yellow + cyan
salmon + blue


Some quick notes
  • If defining your own color gradient, it will only work if it's a CSS color name and it has an accompanying light color. This can be a little counter-intuitive because some colors that you think would have a light version don't, like red. There's also some like steelblue and coral that do have light versions and you would never think of it.
  • To mix color gradients up, remember to use that numeral 2 in the tag or else it won't work!
Imagination is a superpower. Use it well!

After some poking around, I believe I've found the full list of icons we can use on YWS! Check out https://fontawesome.com/v3/icons/ and simply use the word after "icon-"

For example, if you want the icon-book:
Code: Select all
[icon]book[/icon]


Pretty neat, eh?

You can also make icons fancier, like by making them spin or changing their color! See alliyah's post above.



Code: Select all
[color=gold][size=200][icon]star icon-spin[/icon][/size][/color]


The max value for the bbcode size tag on YWS is 200, but if you want to make icons larger, you can use icon-4x. There's also icon-large (33% increase in size), icon-2x, and icon-3x.



Code: Select all
[color=gold][icon]star icon-spin icon-4x[/icon][/color]


There are a lot more things you can do other than icon-spin and icon-large! Check out https://fontawesome.com/v3/examples/
A couple interesting ones: icon-rotate-[90/180/270], icon-flip-[horizontal/vertical], icon-border, icon-muted, pull-[left/right]



Code: Select all
[icon]meh icon-rotate-90[/icon]



Code: Select all
[icon]check icon-border[/icon]


Wise and inspiring quote here


Code: Select all
[center][color=mediumaquamarine][icon]quote-left icon-2x pull-left[/icon][/color] Wise and inspiring quote here [color=mediumaquamarine][icon]quote-right icon-2x pull-right[/icon][/color][/center]
