Is it possible to display 'post A' in 'post B' that auto updates?

Took me ages to summarize and make that title, sob.

Basically what I'm thinking of is to 'display' my Character Sheet in my In-Character post as, say, a new tab or a spoiler something but the feature or BBC that I was thinking of was such that if I edit my CS, all the Character Sheets I 'displayed' on all my In-Character posts will update too... if that makes sense.

Is that possible?

EDIT: or an alternative method which I can use to display my CS on my IC posts without needing to refresh or change page, but at the same time will update when I edit my original CS post also works.

The character system has a "gallery" bbcode option where you can post the character and a little information. O_O It MIGHT auto update (it wont be like the full bio display with the bbcode though)

I just had a fiddle with the Character section and gallery BBC; am I correct in understanding that in order to update the 'little information' I have to Edit Character?

Essentially you want your CS in the IC post?

Well honestly for that you just need add a link to it in the post.

You could link it to a specific post, a Blog post, the Character Sheet feature Diana mentioned above.
Just add a link somewhere in the post going

[url*=link]My Character Sheet[/url]

Minus the *

Gwazi Magnum Gwazi Magnum : The only 'problem' with the url bbc this is that it requires opening a new page. I guess I did not made it clear in the first post but I was looking for a method of displaying without needing to 'change page'.

Thank you for the suggestion though!

Oh.

In that case just put your CS under a Spoiler tag and save the code on a Word Document or something.
Then just add the Spoiler on every new post.

Or you could make a table.
One tab being the post, the other tab being the CS.

Yeah that's what I've been doing until now, but I edited them out as the IC posts started to become longer - mainly because I had to go back and change all the CS that I've posted in the IC whenever I found a typo or had to add something to it.

This is why this thread was made, really; to see if there was a better way for me to go about doing this. I guess there isn't one as of now - the closest thing was the gallery bbc but that only allows a brief description. It still is a nice alternative, I can definitely use it, but I guess it isn't on the type of 'updating' as I had wanted.
