The Ultimate BBCode Achievement Guide Template

Hey all, I recently created a BBCode guide template on PS3T.org for guide writers to use when posting guides on the forums. It's an easy way to get the exact BBCode you need for trophy/achievement images, names and descriptions, in a common "approved" format.

Since both sites have the same basic structure, I added support for X360A and your guide formats. The template is here:

The Ultimate BBCode Achievement Guide Template

Eventually I'll expand it with more options, but for the moment this simply has the basic BBCode skeleton you need for posting guides without going through the hassle of copy/paste from the game pages, etc etc.

Using it is simple:

Select the letter your game starts with, and then select the game. All the BBCode will generate in the bottom frame and you can then copy and paste it into a text editor / forum post and fill in your guide info. The quickest way is to simply click in the bottom frame and Ctrl/Cmd + A to select all.

Note that XB1 games are currently in a separate list.

You may need to adjust the roadmap options based on the game you're doing, and the achievement counts shown for "Offline" will be the counts for the entire game. So you'll need to adjust for online.

Please let me know if you have any problems with it or if there are updates to the format I need to make.

Thanks for adapting it for x360a and posting it over here I've added a link to our how to guide and roadmap thread.

I'll let you know if any issues or feedback come up.

Wow, this is unbelievable helpful. You deserve money... Or at least an A+ Thread Award since this is an A+ thread if I have ever seen one that will help out literally every achievement G+R writer on the website.

I realize the above sentence sounds funny, but I don't know whats wrong with it. Lol.

It doesn't seem to be showing me any games anymore. I click the letters but no games appear.

Just checked and it's the same for me. Maybe the databases on here and PS3t are being formatted or something.

It was an amazing tool when it was working, though.

I posted the problem over on ps3t, I will have much better luck contacting him over there.

I have sent Vyrastas a message informing him about this problem; hopefully it can be fixed soon!

For some reason it just started working again, maybe it was maintenance right here on x360a that restricted the games from appearing through the coding on the template, because the ps3t section was working. Or maybe he just simply fixed it real quick, although he doesn't appear to be online on either sites.

Maybe he was performing maintenance on the template or something and that may have caused it to temporarily stop working?

I think we both can see whose fault it obviously is. Mine. Lol.

Strange things with no real answer always happen on the site when I am around, just like my strange leaderboard problem a few days ago. hehe

Thanks for this, takes out the most tedious part of writing a guide.

Sorry everyone, I wasn't doing anything with the template... probably something with the web host. Of course if the game/achievement pages were offline, it wouldn't work either.

I've subscribed to this thread now and will get email notifications for PMs here, so no need to hop over to PS3T unless you see me online there and need a quick answer.

Sorry for the double post... heads up that the template is currently down since my hosting service (Bluehost) is completely offline. I'm sure it will be back soon, nothing to do but wait.

Edit: All is back to normal.

I'm late to the party but thanks for making this

KillerBEA showed me it a couple months back and since then, it's helped take the tedious work out of making a template for games like Splinter Cell, GTA, and Batman.

Again, thanks for this!

FYI, I've added support for XB1 games... for the moment it's a separate selection outside of the letter list, you'll see it as XB1 at the beginning and it will list all XB1 games.

Once the "browse by letter" pages are live for XB1 lists, I'll move the lists to the letter pages like normal.

Heads up that I made a few updates because of the new site URL. Right now the template is running slow because the site is slow... letters that have a lot of games may take a while to load, so just be patient.
