BBCodes Guide

Postby Ossie » Thu Aug 06, 2015 6:45 pm

What is a BBCode?
BBCodes are little markup codes (or tags) that are commonly used on internet forums to style up text. When you start writing a topic or reply you'll see them right above the textarea.


How are they used?
BBCodes can be used by clicking the button above (or typing the tags by hand) and write text within the tags. For example:

Code: Select all

[b]-Write your text here, within the brackets-[/b]
any text within the [ b ] and [ /b ] will be styled according to the b tag, which is bold text, like this.
BBCodes can be placed in all the topics, posts and private messages you write. You can even use it in your signature!

Can I combine BBCodes?
Yes you can! As long as you start and end every tag somewhere in your post.
For example, you can write a centered bold text and underline a few words:
This is an example.
