BBcode Tags

Postby Captain Indigo » Thu Jun 14, 2007 2:00 pm

BB is a method of formatting similar to HTML, but generally a lot simpler. For the novice, the tags can be added automatically by clicking the formatting tools above the message box when posting. The more confident user can add the BBcode tags themselves, and it's not that hard to do.

BB code uses square brackets ([]) instead of chevrons (<>)(HTML). The codes given in the boxes will have the effect shown beneath.


Simple text effects

Code: Select all
[b]Bold[/b]
Bold

Code: Select all
[i]Italic[/i]
Italic

Code: Select all
[u]Underline[/u]
Underline

Code: Select all
[size=24]24pt text[/size]
24pt text

Code: Select all
[color=red]Red[/color]
Red

Code: Select all
[color=#ff0000]Red[/color]
Red

Colour can be specified using the palatte at the side of the posting box.

Note:
You can add multiple tags, such as bold and italic.

You should always keep the same ratio for the dimensions of an image, otherwise you get something very strange:
