A short tutorial on how to make simple HTML tables in the Valucre editor. I came from an html-enabled jcink forum before I came to val and I am here to spread a tiny bit of coding knowledge. Disclaimer: Am not professional coder. In any way. Note: I normally use Chrome for this, but I believe this also works in Firefox 1. Start a new post/thread OR edit an existing post. Leave one line of text in the editor. 2. Right click, then click "Inspect" OR hit Ctrl+shift+I 3. This window will pop up on the right side of the screen. Click the icon that looks like a box with a cursor on it (highlighted) 4. Click the line of text in the Valucre editor. You'll see the devtools jump to the <p>text</p> element. 5. Right-click the <p>text</p> element and click "Edit as HTML" 6. Edit the HTML. Or, paste one of the simple premade codes I've posted below! After you're done, press Ctrl+Enter and the Val editor will display the code you've inputted! After this simply click Save or Post and the post will retain the formatting you've given it via devtools. Yay! I'll add more tables later but here are a few super-simple ones. <div style="width:75%; margin:auto; border-top: 1px solid; border-bottom:1px solid;"> <p>This is a table with 75% width for skinny posts. It also has borders at the top and bottom.</p> </div> <div style="letter-spacing:2px; font-family:Georgia;"> <p>This table has a e s t h e t i c letter spacing</p> </div> <div style="background: pink; color:white; margin:auto; width:75%;"> <p>This table has a pink background and white text because reasons, I guess.</p> </div> Feel free to ask questions below and/or test tables!
Hey hey! Recently, well several days ago. I decided that I would try and learn how to draw. It wasn't a spur of the moment thing, it's something I always wanted to learn in conjunction with being a writer. I love the fantasy genre and so I always wanted to bring my characters and ideas to life with what I write. For starters I want to learn how to do traditional art and character portraits. I have zero guidance or direction of where to start, how and sumsuch aside from youtube tutorials. I figured I'd learn some tips and ideas on how to start and what I could keep in mind during this journey from artists that reside in Valucre. There are some awesome writers and I imagine just as phenomenal artists as well. if you have any advice for a beginnier, I'm all ears!
Okay so I got inspired to write this out of the blue and am hoping it turns out well. I don't have any music or vocals for it so that's unfortunate but hopefully just reading it will convey what I'm trying to express here. Old Mountain Blues Underneath these old Mountain stones Lies these old Mountain bones Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Been sifting through dirt Been trudging through mud Gave all that I could All my sweat, tears and blood Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Down in a hole where the sun just won't shine Save this soul of mine Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home The walls keep rising And I keep falling Waiting on stars in the rough Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Put the shovel to the mud Take the pick to the stone Keep on working Keep on working Till the fingers turn to to bone Singing "ooh ooh" Nobody's home Put the shovel to the mud Take the pick to the stone Keep on working Keep on working Till the fingers turn to bone Singing "ooh ooh" Nobody's home When the tram door shuts say good bye to the sun Kiss your mama kiss your wife better kiss your little ones Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Lost my daddy on the job, got too close to TNT Daddy breathed in too much poison now he can't even see Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Better watch your step, better keep on the path If you lose your way you ain't never coming back Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Though we may die, our spirits never broken Obtaining treasures surely a well earned token Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Put the shovel to the mud Take the pick to the stone Keep on working Keep on working Till your fingers turn to bone Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Put the shovel to the mud Take the pick to the stone Keep on working Keep on working Till your fingers turn to bone Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Nobody's home Papas been gone for day after day I ask momma why, she don't know what to say Singing "ooh ooh ooh" Please bring him home...
As I seek to make more videos for personal enjoyment, and improvement, and namely for Valucre, I'll post them here for personal collection and public viewing/feedback. I made one for the noble houses of Orisia and might make one for a Heroes and Villains roleplay unless Ataraxy beats me to it. I'm no technical beast by any standard. I use pretty basic video software because, honestly, the better stuff out there confuzzles the heckers out of me and I'm too lazy/too uninvested to learn all that jazz. Still, it's a fun pastime. So anyway here is one video for now. This video is in my quest interest check in WC but I wanted to post in a 'public space' too because I'm really wanting feedback on this video to 'promote' my new storyline. Two problems I note for it are that, as the creator, the footage is obvious to me as to what it represents. But it won't at all be obvious for others. Secondly, and tying in with the above, it's fair that some people will see this as a mishmash of various media material strung together. Not everyone is able to see footage from a known source, like a television series, and forget the fact that, hey, it's from that one television series. Though this video is more like 'face claimed' material that's supposed to represent Valucre in-universe material, I get that it might be jarring for some. Anyway here it is, please critique and thank you:
