Convert HTML TRs from your blog to post on the OH forums

Post by justpeachy » August 26th, 2015, 6:27 pm

I notice a lot of people post two or three sentence "trip reports" here with a link to full reports on another site. Great news! You can easily convert the HTML from that external site into BB code so you can post the report in full here on Oregon Hikers. Here's the conversion site: http://www.garyshood.com/htmltobb/

Copy and paste the URL into the Website box and it will convert it all to BB code, even including line breaks. You'll have to delete any extraneous stuff like menus, header stuff, etc. but it's super quick. The whole thing takes less than a minute. Nifty stuff!

OMG this is one reason I rarely bother posting. It's such a pain to convert html to bb manually.

Thanks for the heads up! I will definitely bookmark that site.
Will break trail for beer.

It's pretty good here, but on other boards a lot of those posts are click bait to draw traffic away or onto pages..
