    How to organize animations on a post?

    Hi. I noticed some posts have little arrows or something to open up a list of animations. Can anybody tell me how to do this? My thread is kind of messy, and I would like to fix that. Thanks.

    You can do a spoiler tag to hide a section:

    Spoiler:
    insert animations!


    For some reason the [code] tag isn't working properly, but you basically gotta wrap this around the text you want to put in an expandable section:
    [spoiler(removethis)]insert animations![/spoiler]

    You probably already know to put your newest animations at the top of your thread, but maybe only put a few as images. The rest you can host as images and then put them in spoilers or you can put links to the site so that we click them to see them.

    The spoiler tags are great for hiding older animations that you don't necessarily want to be ranked on. Head it up with a title like "Older Shit/Old Animations" and the put spoiler tags which look like this:
    Code:
    [spoiler ] images and things go here [/spoiler]
    So if I did
    Code:
    [spoiler ][img ]http://i.imgur.com/BgwgEVW.gif[/img][/spoiler]
    it would look like this:
    Spoiler:


    You could also clean up your thread by putting a list of your older animations as links rather than images, which is something I did with my old thread. You can host your animations then turn the links into titles so we click the titles of your animations and they take us to them.

    For instance, if I didn't want to put the .gif of my Tree Climb animation on my thread, instead of just pasting the link on my thread like this:

    http://i.imgur.com/BgwgEVW.gif

    Though that gets the job done, it's a lot nicer to be able to see a title rather than a web address, so you could change the code from url tags, i.e.:
    Code:
    [url ]http://i.imgur.com/BgwgEVW.gif[/url]
    To this:
    Code:
    [url =http://i.imgur.com/BgwgEVW.gif] *insert title here, in this case, Tree Climb.[/url]
    Just put an equals sign after the first "url" and paste the link, making sure there is a bracket on the right side of the link. Also, don't put the space in between the "url" and the "=", I did that so that you could see the entire code rather than the finished product. Once you've done that, it should look like this:

    Tree Climb!!!

    Anyway, I hope that helps, and good luck!

    the CODE tag here is just a kind of formatting.
    you can use noparse tag to prevent the tag being interpreted.

    Eg. without code tag

    code to use: [noparse][spoiler]insert animations![/spoiler][/noparse]

    output:

    [spoiler]insert animations![/spoiler]


    Eg. with code tag

    code to use: [code][noparse][spoiler]insert animations![/spoiler][/noparse][/code]

    output:

    Code:
    [spoiler]insert animations![/spoiler]
