BB Tutorials ( 02:17:19 SatMar 23 2002 )

We've just finished writing up the tutorials/manuals/readmes/whatever you want to call them for BbBoard. They should serve as a very good referance point, or an introduction to our system if you're new here. They're available at http://bb.bbboy.net/man/ . Or just choose one from below:

We'll be adding to them all the time, and some How-To's are coming up. If you have any special requests for a How-To, just let us know... :smile:

The How To's:

The CSS box is for advanced users to tweak their board with the use of style sheet (CSS) code. This area is not recommended to control your entire board


Yes very informative, I didn't know that CSS is not recommended for the control of the whole board...I thought it was either CSS or EC. And that is why I liked CSS better, but after going through what I've had to go through this week with it, I guess EC deserves a second look. :ohwell:

I know it does borders whereas the CSS wasn't able to do what you wanted. But you know it's your board and if you want to use CSS Lady Sparrow you go for it! :wink: If you're looking for a CSS tutorial I have a link right here:
W3schools
But as Chris add more options to the EC it definitely will be easier to use for everyone. I use it on my Cyber-Soup board with each forum looking pretty different and all through Easy Customization. :smile:

Well I tried EC again using the tutorial, it was definately easier to understand having that so I didn't have to ask question after question to Chris...but the font was really small...not sure why. So I put it back on css my board is messed up today anyway, nothing is going right. Not sure why. Tomorrow when Chris is back, I'll try EC again and see if I can't figure out why the font is so small. It definately was easier to understand EC with the tutorial, definately. :smile:

Well as the scope of EC evolves and the more things you can change and customize with it get bigger-we'll have to add to that tutorial for sure-just did a big FAQ update too so if you haven't seen them in a while you'll probably enjoy checking the admin ones out at least. :wink: But we're aimming to keep it easy and simple-so hopefully that came across in the Tutorial. :smile:

Just adding my congrats on superb tutorials!

You guys rock!

The way you've incorporated classes throughout the boards makes ****** look like a beginner - I just love the way I can control everything on my board via the board template.

You probably already know this, but Aimoo has NO classes - so their boards load very slow, with all that code in there.

Although it's not recommended for full control of your board (there's just some things CSS can't do), you can still do it. In fact, our older boards on here knew nothing but CSS, so it's probably best to stick with what you know, unless you're doing a re-design. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.... :smile:
