I don’t know why I haven’t thought about showing you how to use BB code (Bulletin Board) to modify your posts before now, as I have used it on other forums, guess I just forgot when I was trying to get a grip on HTML.
Anyway, with BB code there is no need to delve into the HTML editor, it can all be implemented from within the message editor.
To colour a bit of text you just have to do this...
[color=red] I want this text red [/color]
I want this text red
...the brackets for the code have to be the square ones by the way.
To change the size of your text is equally simple...
[size=20px] This text is large [/size]
This text is large
The size unit, px in the above example, can be either px (pixel) % (percent) pt (point) mm (millimetres) or em.
Changing the font is again, very similar...
[font=embassy bt] This is a different font [/font]
This is a different font
To make a horizontal line across your post
Text & picture alignment, again, very easy...
[right] This text is right aligned [/right]
This text is right aligned
...with alignment you have the three basic options, left, right and center.
If you want to make an email address clickable, all you need to do is surround it with the email tag...
[email] firstname.lastname@example.org [/email]
You can also make a web address into a clickable link by adding the url tag, but the web address has to be complete, from the protocol ‘http’ to the domain ‘.com’. For example...
[url] www.wgt.com [/url]
...does not work, but...
[url] http://www,wgt.com [/url]
Have fun. : )
