carcinogen_crush The sun is out and bright while,
We are all eating popsicles.
Because maybe the world will end and,
That's the best way to it.

SCREAM through dreams that cut your voice off;
wide awake, will nothing soothe?
With a word I'd take this pain from you,
but I fall mute.

Title: Shadow Hearts update
Posted: July 12, 2007 (02:19 PM)
Updated my SH review, and made it a little better, I hope. I didn't take away any of the negative, but I think the problem before was that I didn't clarify when I became positive.

Take a look.

Should I re-submit, or just leave it edited like this?

Edit:

Okay, someone take a look at myspace.com/the_loop and tell me if the way I set up my reviews looks alright. Thanks to Espiga for helping me with the tags and stuff.

It's not bad. If possible, I'd suggest making a little table for them, so that you have two columns of reviews. It'd help get rid of all that empty space on the right hand side.

P.S.: You're welcome. =]

How do you make a table?

Well, it's a bit complicated, so I'll try to explain it a bit better. Bear with me, since I'll be borrowing some stuff from your myspace for this.

First, you start with the table tag, which looks like so (As always, replace brackets):

[table border="1"]

We're giving it a little bit of a border so that you will be able to keep your reader's eyes lined up with everything.

Afterwards you'll want to create a row, so you'll have to use the table row tag, which is [tr], leaving us with this:

[table border="1"]
[tr]

Now we need to make each individual column. The tag for that is [td]:

[table border="1"]
[tr]
[td]Column 1[/td]
[td]Column 2[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

That would give you a table with one row and two columns, that looks like so:






Column 1 Column 2


Now, because you're using a setup where you have the title above the name of the game, you'll probably want to make two rows per game: The top one for the title and the bottom one for the screenshot. To make another row, we just add another [tr] right after the one we just closed:

[table border="1"]
[tr]
[td]Column 1[/td]
[td]Column 2[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Row 2 Col 1[/td]
[td]Row 2 Col 2[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
Which gives us:










Column 1 Column 2
Row 2 Col 1 Row 2 Col 2


Now, we need to apply that to your review list:

[table border="1"]
[tr]
[td]The Darkness (X360)[/td]
[td]Bullet Witch (X360)[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][a href="http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmhvbmVzdGdhbWVycy5jb20vc3lzdGVtcy9jb250ZW50LnBocD9jb25zb2xlX2lkPTU4JnJldmlld19pZD01OTYyJmdhbWVfaWQ9MTgwMDg=" target="_blank"][img src="http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/3072/heartofdarkness1my4.jpg"][/a][/td]
[td][a href="http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmhvbmVzdGdhbWVycy5jb20vc3lzdGVtcy9jb250ZW50LnBocD9jb25zb2xlX2lkPTU4JnJldmlld19pZD01NjE3JmdhbWVfaWQ9MjE4MjQ=" target="_blank"][img src="http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/1529/bulletwitchil0.png"][/a][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

Which should give you something roughly like this:










The Darkness (X360) Bullet Witch (X360)


You may need to use [center] tags and stuff to format as needed, and for additional rows or columns I think I explained it well enough that you can figure it out on your own. If not, well, I'll try to explain it again in another lengthy post! =D Good luck, and if you have any more questions don't be afraid to ask.

Edit: It also looks like those msplinks things just redirect to Myspace. I just copied the links you were using on your myspace page, so you may want to make sure your links aren't broken as well.

Wow, man; thank you. You're a saint.

About the MSlinks - yeah, it looks like it from here, but when I'm on my page and click one of the pictures, it redirects here.

Whoa, the tags didn't work. . .

Like, I entered them how you said, and it just pretty much left the format like it was - it was still just displayed in the list. You want me to post the tags I used, and see if I went wrong somewhere?

I'd say go ahead and do that, yeah. It's the only way anyone can point to what you need to change, and I'm sure someone will be happy to help.

Damn, my avatar is broken or something.

Okay, here are the tags, kay?

[table border="1"]
[tr] Xbox 360 [/tr]
[tr]
[td]The Darkness[/td]
[td]Bullet Witch[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][a href="http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmhvbmVzdGdhbWVycy5jb20vc3lzdGVtcy9jb250ZW50LnBocD9jb25zb2xlX2lkPTU4JnJldmlld19pZD01OTYyJmdhbWVfaWQ9MTgwMDg="]

Look at the slash after border="0".

That's one error. Looks like you have them in both images, too.

The second error lies here:

[tr] Xbox 360 [/tr]

You're trying to make an entire row have text in it without a column. Try


[tr][th colspan="2"] Xbox 360[/th][/tr]


and see if that helps.

Another piece of advice is to make sure you're closing the table when you're done with [/table].













Xbox 360
The Darkness Bullet Witch




This is my result from taking out those slashes after border="0" and using the tags I explained above. Colspan will allow you to have a title bar that spans multiple columns, hence the name Column Span. Hopefully this helps. And yeah, I had to edit the crap out of this post to get it to work the way I wanted to.

I'm fairly sure the slashes after the 0 are actually not errors, though I tend to put a space after them if I'm doing that. it's a way to self-close the tag, since XHTML compliancy demands closing every single tag and it's stupid to write out <br></br> instead of just <br/>

Ah, I see. I don't really do XHTML all that much. (read: ever) I suppose I should get off my ass and learn it though.
