Forum BB Code Basics

New to forums?

well they are really quite simple, and really easy to use once you get the hang of it. To use them you can either type in the code or just click the corresponding button. BB Code works alot like HTML and actually its a form of xml. Code has a tag name and it is opened with the tagname and closed with the same tagname with an added slash at the beginning. Now you dont have to remember the code. Thats what the buttons are for. Just click the corresponding button, and your tag will be inserted where ever your cursor currently resides in the textarea.

for example. <quote>Hello World!</quote> (change the "<" ">" to "[" "]". ie you need to use brackets instead of gthan - lthan.
this will result in the following...
Hellow World!!

also, like html, BB code stacks. So you can put as many code tags in a nest as you want to.

lets look at the text options.

<b> | <i> | <u>

as in Bold | italics | underline

or may be some color
<color=red>WOW!</color> => WOW! or WOW!

or a size.. WoW

or abit of all of them WO W!!

I showed you <quote> already so lets look at code.
<code>
Hello World!!
</code>

or
Code: Select all
Hello World!!


You can also list.
<list>
option 1
option 2
option 3
<list>
option 3.1
option 3.2
</list>
</list>

or

    option 1
    option 2
    option 3
      option 3.1
      option 3.2

thats about it for the BB code basics. Play with it some, the more you use it the better you get with it. And remember, every forum uses the BB code differently. Its mostly universal, but in some cases, it has its tweaks.
