CHECK YOUR SPELLING BEFORE USING CLOG TAGS

Post by Silurus »

Please check your spelling when using the clog tags in your posting. It lessens the work I have to do correcting errant links in posts.
It would not kill you to preview the post before hitting the submit button.

Thank you, and have a very nice day.

I second this, strongly, I get an email everytime one of these things doesn't work and so if one of the mods doesn't fix it, I end up with it.

As Silurus says, PLEASE CHECK IT using the preview function before final posting.

Copy/pasting direct from the cat-elog page is the easiest way to avoid this if one is unsure of the spelling. :D

This doesn't work with sp/cf/aff species, but someone explained not too long ago (Mats, Jools?).
What was the trick again?

PS: Don't worry, I'll write it down this time.

Copy and pasted from the Loricariidae
page in the Cat-eLog, and then adding the clog tags.

Ancistrini sp. (L127)

Copy and pasted from the species info page.

Ancistrini sp(l127)

You need to remove "." and "space" from the first example.

If you preview before posting, and place the cursor on your clog name in the preview, you'll immediately know if there is an error.

If you are trying to type these rather than copy and paste them from the species page. Remember the following format:

genus+space+species identifier that will NEVER have a space in it, if it appears so, it will actually be an underscore

for example

Code: Select all

Ancistrus sp(l100)
Ageneiosus sp`llanos`
Ancistris sp`rio_ucayali`
As had been pointed out, use of preview will tell you if you've got it right 100% of the time.

Please excuse the ignorance of an old man here, but what is a Clog Tag? I had little luck Googling it.

It is what you use to make a normal catfish name, turn into a name that links to the catalog page.

You type [clog]Corydoras acrensis[/clog], using any species name that is in the database, with BBcode enabled. I had to disable it or else it would turn into a link.

You can copy+paste them from the bottom of any species's page.

It's specific to ARN so google might not help; its something I invented for Planet but expanded to include AR so that if you type (or use the BBcode buttons for the following:

Code: Select all

[clog]Peckoltia compta[/clog]

[clog]L273[/clog] is not in [clog]bagridae[/clog].

[clog]Guppy[/clog], [clog]Goldfish[/clog] or [clog]Banjo Catfish[/clog].
it will show as (with a handy pic if you hover and link to that species profile)

Peckoltia compta

L273 is not in bagridae.

Guppy, Goldfish or Banjo Catfish.
