You Too Can Make ISO Links

You Too Can Make ISO Links

Postby kimpossible » 05 Jul 2019, 15:47

Wondering how to make those magic links for our Mafia games? Follow these easy steps:

1) Copy the link from the first page of the topic. Here's the one for this thread:

https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=59940

2) See where it says "viewtopic.php" ? Replaced that with search.php, like so:

https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/search.php?f=61&t=59940

3) Now add this to the end: &author=

https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/search.php?f=61&t=59940&author=

4) Then fill in the screen name of the individual you want to ISO. Repeat for as many names as you want.

https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/search.php?f=61&t=59940&author=kimpossible

5) If your target has a space in their username (*cough* UFO Fever *cough*), just replace the space with %20, like this:

https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/search.php?f=61&t=59940&author=a%20name%20with%20spaces

Now you can make your very own ISO links!

Note: for purposes of this demonstration, I wrapped each link in a [url] tag to force it to display the full link text, but you don't need to do that when making your links. You can just paste the link right into the post body, and it will automatically become a link. But you'll notice that everything left of "search.php" doesn't display when you do it that way.

Also, credit where it's due, I learned this from mhsmith's post here: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=52818

But thought it might be time to make a more step-by-step guide and bring it up where newer players can easily identify it.

Ahh that’s a very neat little 5 step guide, but can you beat my 3 step guide?

1) Politely ask Kim to make ISO links.

2) Wait for Kim to make ISO links.

3) Enjoy using Kim’s ISO links after thanking her for making ISO links.

Feel free to double check my math here but I’m pretty sure 3<5.

I have a faster 2 step guide:

1. Wait for Kim to make ISO links because you know she will eventually.

2. Thank her and use ISO links.

And sometimes I don't. Sometimes I just make them for myself and wait to see if any of you can manage without me yet.
