Advanced Briefing
« on: 15 Apr 2018, 14:59:02 »
Hello all

I'm working on a mission, and to give it some extra polish I've made tried to make the briefing realistic.

There was a template I had many moons ago, but I lost it and one I did manage to find buried in the official forums did not work, so I have tried to create one myself.

I don't know html, but I was able to get something I was fairly happy with and it worked. Then I added links for the map markers and it didn't work as anticipated. Instead of the detailed orders being separate from the plan, everything's on one page and the detailed order and plan links no longer work. I am unsure as to why. It's probably something really obvious but nothing is jumping out at me.

<h6><a name="Main"></a>
<br><br>
It's been a tough tour against a determined enemy, and we've suffered casualties. We're coming up to the end of our deployment now, and I'd like to bring my men home alive.<br><br>Now is a good time to note down some tips I've learned over the tour:<br><br>1. I'll probably need to instruct my men to move through the minefield gap in column formation.<br><br>2. The artillery can destroy units, and perform useful functions like a covering barrage with HE or smk.<br><br>3. The FSG can provide overwatch which works best from high ground. It's also a good idea to keep them away from the enemy, their light armour makes them vulnerable to small arms and RPG fire.</h6>

You have a typo there:
Code: [Select]
<a href'"marker:point5">LOE</a>should of course be
Code: [Select]
<a href="marker:point5">LOE</a>
In addition sort of "typos", all the objective definitions are faulty a bit:
Code: [Select]
<a name = "OBJ_RV">should be
Code: [Select]
<a name="OBJ_RV">
Project MCAR   ---   FWW2 - Finland At War 1939-1945
INFORMATIVE THREAD TITLES PLEASE. "PLEASE HELP" IS NOT ONE..
