BB CODES



BBCode can be used thougout this forum, includes tags to allow you to quickly change the basic style of your text. This is achieved in the following ways:


To make bold text.....

CODE: Select all

[b][/b]

For underlining use , for example:

CODE: Select all

[u]Good Morning[/u]

To italicize text use...

CODE: Select all

[i][/i]

To alter the color. You can specify either a recognized color name (eg. red, blue, yellow, etc.) or the hexadecimal triplet alternative, e.g. #FFFFFF, #000000. For example, to create red text you could use:

CODE: Select all

[color=red][/color]

Changing the text size is numerical value representing the text size in percent, starting at 20 (very small) through to 200 (very large) by default. For example:

CODE: Select all

[size=30]SMALL[/size]

Combine tags!!! Yes, of course you can, for example to get someones attention you may write:

CODE: Select all

[size=200][color=red][b]LOOK AT ME![/b][/color][/size]

Outputting code or fixed width data
If you want to output a piece of code or in fact anything that requires a fixed width, e.g. Courier type font, use....

CODE: Select all

echo "This is some code";

Creating an Un-ordered list
BBCode supports two types of lists, unordered and ordered. They are essentially the same as their HTML equivalents. An unordered list outputs each item in your list sequentially one after the other indenting each with a bullet character. To create an unordered list you use code below and define each item within the list using [*]. For example to list your favorite colors you could use:

CODE: Select all

[list]
[*]Red
[*]Blue
[*]Yellow
[/list]

Creating an Ordered list
The second type of list, an ordered list, gives you control over what is output before each item. To create an ordered list you use below code to create a numbered list or alternatively "list=a" for an alphabetical list. As with the un-ordered list, items are specified using [*]. For example:

CODE: Select all

[list=1]
[*]Go to the shops
[*]Buy a new computer
[*]Swear at computer when it crashes
[/list]

Creating Links
phpBB BBCode supports a number of ways of creating URIs (Uniform Resource Indicators) better known as URLs. The first of these uses the tag, whatever you type after the = sign will cause the contents of that tag to act as a URL. For example to link to phpBB.com you could use:

CODE: Select all

[url=https://www.phpbb.com/]Visit phpBB![/url]

The same thing applies equally to email addresses, you can either specify an address explicitly for example:

CODE: Select all

[email]no.one@domain.adr[/email]

Showing images in posts
phpBB BBCode incorporates a tag for including images in your posts. Two very important things to remember when using this tag are: many users do not appreciate lots of images being shown in posts and secondly the image you display must already be available on the internet (it cannot exist only on your computer for example, unless you run a web-server!). To display an image you must surround the URL pointing to the image. This optional (but preferred), however, you can just attach an image in a post.

CODE: Select all

[img]https://www.phpbb.com/theme/images/logos/blue/160x52.png[/img]

Adding attachments into a post
Attachments can now be placed in any part of a post, if the attachments functionality has been enabled by a board administrator and if you are given the appropriate permissions to create attachments. Within the posting screen is a drop-down box (respectively a button) for placing attachments inline.

CODE: Select all
