PostSubject: BB Code help - right click on this link and open in new tab, idiots guide added   Mon Oct 26, 2009 8:51 am

This is a guide to help you if you wish to insert links and images to your messages.
Any problems PM me and i'll try to help.

What is BB Code?

BB code is a set of tags based on the HTML language that you may already be familiar with. They allow you to add formatting to your messages in the same way as HTML does, but have a simpler syntax and will never break the layout of the pages you are viewing. The ability to use BB Code is set on a forum-by-forum basis by the administrator, so you should check the forum rules when you post a new message.

URL Hyperlinking

If BB Code is enabled in a forum, you can simply type in the full address of the page you are linking to, and the hyperlink will be created automatically. Here are some example links:

* http://www.playuppompey.net/forum.htm
* www.playuppompey.net

Notice that if the address begins with www. you do not need to add the http:// part of the address. If the address does not begin with www. you will need to add the http:// section. You may also use https:// and ftp:// links, and these will be converted into links.

If you want to include the BB Code, you may simply surround the address with [url] tags as shown below.

Code:
[url]www.playuppompey.net/forum/[/url]

You can also include true hyperlinks using the [url] tag. Just use the following format:

Code:
[url=http://www.playuppompey.net/forum/]Click here to visit the forum[/url]

This will produce a hyperlink like this: Click here to visit the forum

Note that once again, you need not include the http:// if the address begins www.

Code:
[color=pink][size=18][b]♥♥[/b][/size][/color]

Adding Images

To include a picture or graphic within the body of your message, you can simply surround the address of the image as shown here:

Code:
[img]http://www.playuppompey.net/forum.htm/images/forum/clear.gif[/img]

Note that the http:// part of the image URL is required for the [img] code.


Quoting Other Messages

To quote something that has already been posted, simply cut-and-paste the text you want to quote, and enclose it as follows:

Code:
[quote]No. Try not.
    Do or do not, there is no try.[/quote]

The [quote] tags will automatically indent the enclosed text.
Quote :
No. Try not.
Do or do not, there is no try.



Email Links

To add a link to an email address, you can simply include the email address in your message like this:

myname@domain.com

Note that there must be a blank space, such as a space or a carriage return before the beginning of the address.

You can also use BB Code tags to specify an email address, like this:

myname@domain.com

You can also add a true email hyperlink using the following format:

Click here to email me

This will produce a hyperlink like this: Click here to email me.

Bold, Underlined and Italic Text

You can make text bold, underlined or italicized by simply surrounding your text with tags as shown below:

*
Code:
[b]some text[/b]
produces some text
*
Code:
[u]some text[/u]
produces some text
*
Code:
[i]some text[/i]
produces some text


Using Different Colors, Sizes and Fonts

You can alter the size, color and font of text using the following tags:

*
Code:
[color=blue]some text[/color]
produces some text (colored blue)
*
Code:
[size=18]some text[/size]
produces some text (size 18 text)
*
Code:
[font=impact]some text[/font]
produces some text (using impact font)

You can also combine all the various text formatting tags. This example uses bold, underlined, purple text:

Code:
[color=purple][u][b]Wow there's lots of formatting here![/b][/u][/color]

This example produces this:

Wow there's lots of formatting here!

Bullets and Lists

You can create bulleted or ordered lists in the following way:

Unordered, bulleted list:

Code:

[list]
[*]first bulleted item
[*]second bulleted item
[/list]

This produces:

* first bulleted item
* second bulleted item

Note that you must remember to close the list with the
[/list] tag.

tags. Or paste it into the image box next to the one you just used.
