FAQ: Key Threads - IMDb Poll FAQs Index

=========================================================

Upper case characters work in markup
tags for lists, but do not work for polls. As a result, link backs to threads
and other markups may work fine for lists but do not work for polls.


For example:

These works fine for lists, but do not work for polls:

[Link=http://www.imdb.com]IMDb Home Page[/link]

[RED]This text is red[/Red]

 

Use these markup tags instead:

[link=http://www.imdb.com]IMDb Home Page[/link]

[red]This text is red[/red]

Links to external websites do not work in lists, but work in polls. IMDb does not consider Amazon.com and Box Office Mojo external sites.

For example:

These links do not work in lists, but work in polls.

[link=http://www.google.com]Google[/link]

[link=http://www.yahoo.com]Yahoo[/link]

 

These links work in lists and in polls:

[link=http://www.imdb.com]IMDb Home Page[/link]

[link=http://www.amazon.com]Amazon.com[/link]

[link=http://www.boxofficemojo.com/]Box Office Mojo[/link]

The URL markup tag works on the message board for links, it does not work for lists and polls. The LINK markup tag works for lists and polls, but does not work always work on the message boards.

For example:

This works on the message board, but not on lists or polls.

[url]http://www.google.com[/url]

 

These work on lists or polls, but not on the message board.

[link=http://www.imdb.com]IMDb Home Page[/link]

[link=http://www.amazon.com]Amazon.com[/link]

[link=http://www.boxofficemojo.com/]Box Office Mojo[/link]

[link=http://www.imdb.com]

 

These work on polls, but not on the message board or lists.

[link=http://www.google.com]Google[/link]

[link=http://www.yahoo.com]Yahoo[/link]

[link=http://www.google.com]

 

These all work on the message board, lists and polls.
