Have you ever noticed that the blocks in the Scratch Forums look old and outdated? Well, we can change that with a simple workaround in your posts.
You can also use this method to get block images for tutorials and such as well as the forums.
Note: I’m not going to go in-depth on the [scratchblocks] syntax. If you need a guide, check this Scratch Wiki page.
To start, head on over to the scratchblocks page. It looks like this after loading:
Once the page has loaded, in the box on the right, enter the [scratchblocks] code you want to make your blocks. A preview of your blocks will appear on the right side.
When you’re done and happy with your scripts, hit the “Export PNG” button below the “scratchblocks” logo.
Once you’ve saved it, you should resize the image to make it smaller, and crop out the extra space.
Now, head to an image host like cubeupload and upload your block image.
Grab its link and head to the topic you want to post the blocks on. (I’m using the official scratchblocks testing topic), and insert the image using the image button.
Then share your post!
That’s it! Thanks for reading!
