I see this topic is old and everybody now seems to know how to display on the forum diagrams from actual play on BBO, so I'm obviously dumb :D

While I'm at it, here's how I post hands I played on BBO. Reviewing the hand record in the new (Flash) version of BBO, I simply click on Options -> Export Deal -> Handviewer Link. This will give me a URL such as

http://tinyurl.com/7z7qfjw

I open this in a browser and get redirected to a URL....

This can again easily be converted to forum code like so:

[hv=sn=mgoetze&s=............



I can create and view the Handviewer Link, but it still doesn't seem to work if pasted into a post and I can't see how to convert it to forum code (which I have no problem understanding or editing if necessary).
Help please?

Cut and paste the URL into a forum post
Replace the beginning stuff up to the question mark with
[hv=

At the end of the URL, add
]400!300!

(Adjust width and height to taste).
Add comments, if any, like this.
Finally close with
[/hv]

Thanks!

Here's the guide for dummies that I wrote to remind myself ;)

___________________________________________________________________________________


HOW TO INSERT A DIAGRAM WITH PLAY IN A BRIDGEBASE FORUM POST

1. Reviewing the hand record in the old (Flash) version of BBO, click on Options -> Export Deal -> Handviewer Link.
This will give a URL such as: http://tinyurl.com/7z7qfjw

2. open this in a browser and get redirected to a long URL

3. copy this long URL and paste into the body of a new bridgebase forum post

3. remove text up to and including "?"

4. precede with "[hv="

5. append "400|300|[/hv]"

6. add any comments in () brackets

7. preview and adjust if necessary.

For reference, you can skip step 3 entirely.
Challenge event 14 is underway.

Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)
