Adding a Plant Calculator

Post by CnDee »

Hi, my forum is for gardeners. I am trying to add a "Plant Calculator" to my forum. Whenever I add the html, it looks like code instead of like the generator. Here are the images and my site address too. I am not savvy on much ... I am 70 so it's kinda hard to figure out technical on my own.
  • this is what I GET WHEN I enter my code between the frame: Image
  • this is the code:

    Code: Select all

    [/list]<!doctype html>
    <html>
    <head>
    	<title></title>
    </head>
    <body class="cgSpecial" style="background: #ffffff;">
    <style type="text/css">form input.form-error {
                            border-color: #B94A48;

                            color: #B94A48;
                        }
    </style>
    <script>
                        var EmailSignup = {
                            form: function(link) {
                                //link.style.display = 'none';

    <div>
    <div style="font-size:110%;">This plant and landscaping calculator makes it easy to figure out how many plants you need, spacing, and coverage.<br />
    <br />
    <span style="font-weight:bold;">Fill in any two fields and this tool will calculate the third field.</span></div>
    <br />
    Use this tool to determine:
    <ul>
    	<li><span style="font-weight:bold;">How many plants do you need to cover a specific area?</span> (Enter Area and Spacing)</li>
    	<li><span style="font-weight:bold;">What spacing best fills an area with a specific number of plants?</span> (Enter Area and Number of Plants)</li>
    	<li><span style="font-weight:bold;">What area would be filled by a specific number of plants at a specific spacing?</span> (Enter Spacing and Number of Plants)</li>
    </ul>
    
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    </div>
    
    <div>Note: given proper nurturing, the center of the spacing range that we suggest on the <a data-html="&lt;img class=&quot;img-rounded&quot; style=&quot;float:center; margin: 5px;;&quot;  data-cke-saved-src=&quot;/images/specsTab.jpg&quot; src=&quot;/images/specsTab.jpg&quot; /&gt;" data-toggle="htmltooltip" title="">&quot;Specs&quot; tab</a> of each plant will generally result in good fill within two years. Use a closer spacing if you wish them to fill in more quickly. Farther spacing is a more economic choice, provided you are willing to wait longer for them to fill in. Plantings in northern zones will of course take longer, as the growing season is shorter.</div>

Can I ask where you got the code from? I think there’s more to just the code.

I am 71 as well so don't sell yourself short . you can learn this stuff.

anyway, where are you trying to use this code?
you can't use any of it just in a post. you posted it here in the bbcode section but I see nothing in that code that relates to a bbcode
at all.

I would suggest you just create a normal web page with your code for the calculator and then simply link to it in your menu or wherever you like.

I have not tested the code you posted but if it works at all it should work in a html web page.

I’ll move it to custom coding.

Thank you both. I got the code from my son that made it but he left without telling me how. He put it on my test website on the contacts page so I can try to figure it out but I'm stuck. It does work on my website: https://1.roxiecommunitygarden.com/contact--map.html which isn't pphBB. on my website all I did was enter it in a code box and it worked. I use Weebly on that site. My Garden uses pphBB for our forum and I'd like to put it on the forum in a page.

the simple way to do this would be just put a link from your board to the webpage that the plant calculator is working on.
;and then put a link back to the board on that page as well.

you could install the pages extension on your board and then create a custom html page with it that will look just like the rest
of your board and all the relevant links would be created for you .
