Using acronyms feature

Go to solution Solved by Werner,

Recommended Posts


It is possible to add explanations to certain expression or acronyms.

The example above shows the (in this case case-sensitive) expression OOB (you see it is "underdot'ed") with the explanation "out of the box" while pointing with the cursor on it.


Do you think this is a useful feature and if so what acronyms could/should be added to be automatically highlighted?

CSC - Community Supported Chip?

It is actually not the same as EOS.


I think I'll just add some of the suggestion and see what happens. It should not break anything (and if we can blame Invision :P)



Hm it does not add the acronyms to already existing posts. Not immediately at least. Maybe there is a cronjob or something that will take care of.

Sorry, read it on the mobile - had an answer in my mind, but wanted to write on the PC and forgot it :(


Well, both are no longer supported. So, when you  change an SBC from Supported to Not-Supported - it doesn't matter for the user whether you call it  EOS or CSC - to this person it is the same.  No supported images.

As soon as someone steps in and want to support it again - its status would change to "supported".  As it is anyway on best effort - there is no difference at all. The EOS/CSC never made any sense.
