I remember there was some way to include badges in the post text in a similar way can be, but I cannot find it in the help. How can this be done?

  • Where would that be useful? By the way: you could link to your badge page or just the general one. Feb 5 '14 at 10:11
  • I've never seen this. Perhaps it was a screenshot?

  • @JoachimSauer would be very useful on Meta, e.g. in this question

    There's a feature request for this, but it was never implemented from what I can see.

This is not official and might be taken down any moment, but I think you refer to this?


The image source is: http://kevinx.net/labs/php/badge/badge.php?txt=My+Gold+Badge&c=g so you just type whatever you want and choose badge color (g for Gold, s for Silver and b for Bronze) and you get the image. To put it inside a post just use:

<img src="http://kevinx.net/labs/php/badge/badge.php?txt=My+Gold+Badge&c=g" />
  • Nope! It was an actual sequence, like [tag:my tag]. I think it was something like [silver-badge:Sportsmanship] or alike.

  • BTW is this something you just created? :) Because this is certainly not SE's, it has different font and little bit uglish blur :-)

  • @Tomas no such thing, maybe you saw a feature request asking for this. And no, not my own, couldn't find the creator though. (too many Kevin's here) Feb 5 '14 at 10:21
  • @Tomas yep, you most likely saw this. Feb 5 '14 at 10:22
  • Wow that's a nice template :) Just made a badge of my name lol
