Forum - Adding a Combat Spreadsheet

Adding a Spreadsheet Link

   Many forums use am embedded spreadsheet, in this example a Google Spreadsheet, to track an manage certain aspects of combat.  In addition to the Game Maps bottom content rows, which lists players and can be edited, using a spreadsheet is an option that many like.  And here is how you embed a spreadsheet into a post using code.

[website]https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AsX7aXoBO5kwdHZKQWEycVljOENabWNfNUNNVXdJTEE&hl=en[/website]

To get the link to use for your spreadsheet for the website button go to your google spreadsheet and there is a share button in the top right and this will give you the link to use.

Below is an image of my google spreadsheet for Flesh of Gods.

     The spreadsheet will be active in the post and show in the body of the post in a scroll enabled window.  Many documents can use the website code if the linked target allows it.
