HTML-free character sheet test:



Hairy McHair


 



BASE
Strength = 0
Dexterity = +1
Stamina = -2
Perception = +2

PASSIVE
Stealth

Info and stuff about this guy here.




Cassidy Jones





BASE
Strength = 0
Dexterity = +1
Stamina = -2
Perception = +2

PASSIVE
Stealth
                                                                                                   

Quote
Cassidy Anne Jones. Birth: April 10th, 182 ATB. First appearance: Page ?, Act 1. Notes: Possibly emotionally compromised.




NOTES: Each of these were made with simple tables with one row and two-three columns each. The right-aligned portrait was achieved simply by putting a ton of spaces just below the final line of the stats(In this case, the word "Stealth". Click/drag on the post to see the line of spaces). Having the spaces in their own line, sharing the columns with the stats, ensures consistency with every character sheet in this style, no matter how much text they have.
The small gap between the left-oriented portrait and the stats was done via an invisible third column between the portrait and stat columns, with just two spaces in it.
As for the info section, a quote was the best I could do for now, and atm is the only noticeable difference between the HTML embedded character sheets. There's no space between the quote tag and the closing table tag, because the quote naturally makes a break. Feel free to experiment with alternatives.

Hairy McHair

Splendid! Though the quote boxes still aren't as nice as the highlighted background style. I'm gonna see if I can do any BB research on this...

Anyway, So I decided to set this up using a couple of Jonathan's characters as well, so that one can more readily compare his format that's already in the stat thread to what we're going to try and convert to here.

Alright, we now have the ability to add CSS styling and classes to most text within BBCode. Using it's a tad clunky, but the results are cool.

Example:

Code: [Select]
[table style="background-color: #ffb814; border: 3px solid black;"][tr][td][i][size=14pt][b]Cassidy Anne Jones. Birth: April 10th, 182 ATB. First appearance: Page ?, Act 1. Notes: Possibly emotionally compromised.[/b][/size][/i][/td][/tr][/table]
Creates:

This is an experimental attempt at a stat card, rather than a divided section. It's almost functional, save for the problem that... you can't post any more beyond the first. I'll fix it... later... when my job stops being an ass.

Nice work! The reason they're all connected though is that you had a table in a table with only one table end tag, inadvertently putting all following tables inside the first one.

You need two table ends:
Code: [Select]
[/td][/tr][/table]
[/td][/tr][/table]
At the end of each sheet.

So, I guess the first is what one would look like under the current format. The next one is an experiment to add additional information. I can add fourth column too.
