[CODE] very simple character archive (3 versions)

POSTED: Tue May 25, 2010 1:46 am

Directions & Use

There are directions to this character archive. They haven't really been edited for use outside of 'Souls (e.g., there are links to things you should do/can do at 'Souls) since I intended for this to be mostly-used at 'Souls (though you can also find it at RPG-Directory). BUT, yes. The directions, they are embedded into the CSS. You can leave them or strip them out, whatevs suits your fancy.

If you can use doHTML in your posts (you can at 'Souls) or HTML is enabled on your forums, you can use the VSCA directly on your forum. If not, you can always embed it into a web page. There's an example of a text-only VSCA here. I didn't do anything but put HTML and body tags around that (and maybe messed with the padding, but shh).

Text Only Very Simple Character Archive

Text Only Code

The basic thing with this one is that it's designed to sort of flow with the natural font stylings of the forum or something. It doesn't use colors or links or whatever, so it survives forum skins pretty damn well. XD

Text-Only VSCA Example

Character Name
You can put links to a profile or an image... whatever you want, really, here. :3
'Souls Wiki Profile
Detailed Profile
character status, notes, key, whatever you wanna put here. :] I tend to use this space for how many active threads I have at the moment, or "dead character" or "inactive character."

BB Code VSCA

Sorry, no preview available!

This one is pretty different from my usual character sheet. >_> Rather than having every single thing with its own little subheader, I've left this one mostly to block paragraph text—so rather than using an individual subheader for your character's name's pronunciation, meaning, origin, etc., you should just combine it all under one header. 8D

I am going to have to use some of this for my Hybrid post log, which I have decided to actually organize or something weird like that omg. :>

POSTED: Wed May 26, 2010 2:42 am

ILU ALL. <3

I'm pretty sure I'm fond of this, but I'm splitting up Kae's threads by year/era. I hit the per-post limit with just her threads from 2009-2010. >____>

POSTED: Fri May 28, 2010 10:27 pm

i like this.

i wish I had the time to use it, but it would take me HOMG hours to re-haul Kansas's archived threads.

perhaps I'll use it for Rio! <333

POSTED: Sun May 30, 2010 2:44 pm

this is one of those things that should be pinned. -hinthint.- >__>;
i love the usefulness! ♥

POSTED: Sun May 30, 2010 10:28 pm

Aww, there are enough pinned things in this forum, I think. ^_^ I did link this from my wiki page and everything, if you want I'll put it on my resources page as well?

-hugloves-

POSTED: Sun May 30, 2010 11:16 pm

I dunno, do things get deleted if they get too outdated, like when they fall to the bottom of the very last available page? D:

The same with the css guide, which is ridiculously helpful. I'd be sad if they go bye-bye. ;[ There's also the need to search for the topic when you want it.

POSTED: Sun May 30, 2010 11:46 pm

Nuh, nothing is deleted anymore. :3 The forum's default is to show topics that have been replied to in the last 30 days; however, you can scroll to the bottom of the forum and use the drop down box to display topics from "the beginning" and scroll back quite a while.

You can also <a href='http://www.soulsrpg.com/ipb/index.php?act=Search' target='_blank'>search for it</a> if it falls off of the first page--search is on the upper right hand side in the second menu, beneath Plot/Rules/Joining bar, on the far side.

Maybe if it's okay by the SA, I could add a link to this thread here from <a href='http://soulsrpg.com/ipb/viewtopic.php?t=15' target='_blank'>this thread here</a> in Profiles & Archives listings? :o Gotta ask first. ^_^

POSTED: Mon May 31, 2010 3:08 am

what about adding links to the threads in the resources thread thats already pinned?

POSTED: Mon May 31, 2010 3:23 am

Good call. :D -trundles off to do this-

I added it!

I might add a second reply with some super basic post log ideas, eg:

And a simpler list style like yours too in HTML. :D
