This is one of those topics that really isn't ToR General (about the game) but nor is it Feedback to the Torhead admins so it's difficult to know if it should be moved to Feedback or not. There's been a couple of threads in Feedback asking similar questions but I guess most people using the forum on a day to day basis aren't necessarily looking in Feedback often. I'll leave this thread here but it may get moved later.

ok i know this might bea stupid question but where did you get the item information for the battlemaster force-master's lightsaber and if its a program can you tell me how
By asakawa at 2012-03-19 04:14:50

The URL for that item is:


if you look at just this bit:

http://www.torhead.com/- item/7iJcGUs -/battlemaster-force-masters-lightsaber

discard the rest and change the slash to an equals:


Place inside square brackets and close the tag:

thank you very much

i have another on how do you show videos in the forums, with a a small how to do it so i dont screw it up like what you did

By asakawa at 2012-03-20 04:40:14

[youtube= - copy the code from a youtube video - ][/youtube]Videos and images should be used sparingly and responsibly on the forum. These are codes that are limited to only staff on Wowhead so if people want them to remain available to everyone on Torhead I suggest they be sure not to abuse them by posting anything that moderators have to deal with. Keep their use on-topic and completely PG-13. If in doubt, just don't post it.

how do you add a table
By asakawa at 2012-03-26 10:04:50
[table width=50%]
[tr] [th] data1 [/th][th] data2 [/th][/tr][tr] [td] data3 [/td][td] data4 [/td][/tr][tr] [td] data5 [/td][td] data6 [/td][/tr][/table]

? 1/4

data1 data2
data3 data4
data5 data6

Not everything from Wowhead's BBCode system applies here (eg. you can use [th] for headers here instead of [td=header]) but some of this is still useful.

when i tryied to up load a pic on to and i got
can you7 show step by step useing http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/717/screenshot2012050313341.jpg to show the pic
also do you have to uload the pic to the internet before it will show
By Fauxknight at 2012-05-10 10:40:54

That is a link to the page with the picture, not to the picture itself. Direct picture links from Imageshack look more like this:


When you are in the my images section hit the little 'i' next to the picture for share it, that will give you a number of different ways to link it. There is a specific section there for linking the picture in forums with the img tags already in place, just copy and paste.

for me to be able to get it i nedded to get it up

  • when posting pic use [ img ] and[ /img ](with out the spacing / closing the pic or you can write after the pic
  • i need to select the pic
  • click get code for websites. Which will look like this
  • <a href="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/717/screenshot2012050313341.jpg/" target="_blank"><img src="http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/8504/screenshot2012050313341.th.jpg" border="0"/></a>[*/]
  • then only use http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/8504/screenshot2012050313341.th.jpg the put the[*/]

when posting pic use [ img ] and[ /img ](with out the spacing / closing the pic or you can write after the pic)

then to get rid of the the number on the pic get rid of take out .th and it will be bigger 2

I cannot figure out or find a post explaining how to post clickable links to missions in comments section. For example, rather than putting the full www web address I see some people post the "name" of the leads to quest that is a clickable link.
Please help.

you are are probly thinking about hyper link(the earth with a chain link) just above where your post
or you can do the old way

change all < to [ and all > to ]

<url=web site link>name you want the link</url> the </url> closes it, cause if you did not the the words after it will be part of the hyper think name
e.q. <url=http://www.torhead.com/>torhead</url>

now change all < to [ and all > to ]

it should look like torhead

if you did not close it it would look like this

torhead So if i put words after it. it will be aprt of it

You can do it manually like kkitty showed, or you can use [mission=2SKnvFQ][/mission] to get Colicoid Massacre: The Cover-up. The correct mission id can be found in the url of the mission page.

you show a lot of great tips here.

But I recall on wowheads forums they had a admin post near the top titled something like "How to use wowhead
forums" The thread showed how to do just about all the things you talked about here, and included Rules for
posting on the site. ect.

A thread like that might be usefull here on Torhead.
