What is BBCode?
BBCode an is essential tool on forums. It is very simple once you learn the codes. It is a code system that can be used to format your posts in many different ways. While BBCode is permitted on the forum, please do not use it in the shoutbox.
The following is an example of a code:
[b]This code creates bold text.[/b]
Basic Text Formatting Codes
All codes start with two brackets and the required word or letter to make the code work properly. It generally ends with a slash after the first bracket, followed by the required word or letter again, and then closed with a bracket. This might sound confusing at first, but it gets easier with practice.
How do I use this?
To start, you have to turn on the toggle tool. Below is a list of codes you can use and what they do. Please note that the tool bar has all of these codes that can be automatically inserted with the push of a button.
[b]This code creates bold text[/b]This code creates bold text
