New Storm2K Message Features

#1 Postby tolakram » Wed Jun 29, 2016 6:38 pm

Hi all,

a few new features to note if you care to use them.

When creating a post you will notice some new buttons across the top.

Disclaimer will include the standard S2K disclaimer in place of the tags when you submit the post. Note that the disclaimer is now optional however if you want to include it we've made it easy.

Code: Select all

Youtube5 will embed a youtube video using the newer html5 player rather than requiring the Flash plugin. This is a better option for modern browsers and mobile.

To use go to the Youtube video you want to embed and select share, then copy the youtu.be link

Place the link between the Youtube5 tags.

Code: Select all

Div will create a box around any text within the div tag and render the text in a monospaced font, much like a forecast.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1100 AM PDT WED JUN 29 2016

For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

A broad area of disturbed weather has developed in association
with a tropical wave several hundred miles south of the Gulf of
Tehuantepec. A low pressure system is expected to form later this
week, and environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for
a tropical depression to develop over the weekend while the system
moves generally westward or west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph,
remaining well offshore of the coast of Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent

The Like button is also very cool. I have seen many posts that I wanted to like and remembered, can't do that here. Good Job!
