The Forum Style Listing

This is accessed from the Data > Export menu and depending on the current state of the multi-select flag will either list all the items in the grid, or just those that are selected.

The finished post looks like this:

The Bulletin Board style (BB) code which produces that is shown in the code below and this should work on any forum that uses BB Codes:

The Forum Style Post

This is accessed from the context menu by right clicking in the grid. Make sure you have the right earthquake selected first as it picks the selection and not the line under the point that was clicked.

Because it is not so easy with the new style web site for USGS to get a reasonable set of data to post I decided to get the program to do this for you. Basically it is a header, a Google Maps link and some details and then a link to the provider information. It works with USGS or EMSC data but NOT with GeoNet data (yet).

The post looks like this
