What is 'Simple Markup'

You can use the following tags to add simple html-like markup to your posts.

[b] Bold [/b] = Bold

[i] Italics [/i] = Italics

[link] http://community.thefoundry.co.uk [/link] = http://community.thefoundry.co.uk

[link="http://community.thefoundry.co.uk"] The Foundry Community Web Site [/link] = The Foundry Community Web Site

[email] email@someaddress.com [/email] = email@someaddress.com

[email="email@someaddress.com"] my email address [/email] = my email address

[img] http://community.thefoundry.co.uk/images/example/logo.png [/img] =

[code] int i = 42; [/code] = int i = 42;

How do I post images?

There are two methods. You can upload an image directly to posts and galleries by clicking 'Add Content' or you can host them on your personal server and can be linked to through the [img] simple markup.

What image formats can I upload?

We support .jpg and .png

What is the maximum resolution of images?

You can upload images up to 2048x2048. But we recommend a more reasonable resolution to make them easier to view on most desktops and mobile devices.

What video formats can I upload?

We attempt to support the most popular formats. Currently we support .mp4, .m4v, .ogv, .webm, .mov, and .flv. You can also add links to YouTube and Vimeo videos through the 'Add Content' feature.

Can I embed YouTube or Vimeo videos?

Yes, videos hosted on YouTube and Vimeo can be embedded in posts using the following simple markup.

The tag for YouTube is [YOUTUBE="video_id"]. Where "video_id" is taken from the YouTube url. For example to embed The Foundry's 2014 Showreel we use the video_id from this url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agRtaWTItQ0. We take the text after v= and enter it into the YouTube tag: [YOUTUBE="agRtaWTItQ0"]

Vimeo works the same way [VIMEO="video_id"]. The Vimeo link to our 2014 Showreel is http://vimeo.com/91528664. We take the 91528664 video_id from the url and enter it into the Vimeo tag: [VIMEO="91528664"]

Can I embed Sketchfab Models?

Yes, models hosted on Sketchfab.com can be embedded in posts using the following simple markup.

The tag for Sketchfab is [SKETCHFAB="model_id"]. Where "model_id" is taken from the Sketchfab url. For example to embed the model from the following url: https://sketchfab.com/models/97ee32dd3d13453aae1d046097fb20ca you can enter the full url [SKETCHFAB="https://sketchfab.com/models/97ee32dd3d13453aae1d046097fb20ca"] and we'll extract the model_id or you can enter the model_id by itself [SKETCHFAB="97ee32dd3d13453aae1d046097fb20ca"].

What does the 'Report' link do?

The 'Report' link is used to report a bad post to the forum moderators. It should be used when an abusive, offensive or spam (advertisement) post is made in a forum.
