How To: Text Formatting

Post by Sporadic on Sun Jan 20, 2013 1:44 am

Introduction:

What is BBCode?

BBCode is a special implementation of HTML. Whether you can use BBCode is determined by the administrator. You can also disable it on a per post basis from the posting form. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML: tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ] rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and how something is displayed. For more information on BBCode see the guide which can be accessed from the posting page.



Basic Text Formatting:

Spoiler:
BBCode includes tags to allow you to quickly change the basic style of your text. This is achieved in the following ways: To make a piece of text bold enclose it in:

Code:
 [b]Hello[/b]

Result:Hello

For underlining use:

Code:
 [u]Hello[/u]

Result: Hello


To italicise text use:

Code:
[i]Great![/i]

Result: Great!

To strike some text:

Code:
 [strike]test[/strike]

Result: test


Changing Text Color and Size:

Spoiler:
To alter the color or size of your text the following tags can be used.
(Keep in mind that how the output appears will depend on the viewers
browser and system):

To change your text color, you can specify a known color (ex: red,
blue, yellow, etc.), or an hexadecimal color code (ex: #FFFFFF,
#000000):

Code:
[color=red]Red color (red)[/color] or [color=#FF0000]Red color (#FF0000)[/color]

Result: Red color (red) or Red color (#FF0000)


To change your text size, you must specify the text size in pixel, from 1 (so small you won't see it) to 29 (very huge):

Code:
[size=9]SMALL[/size] or [size=24]HUGE[/size]

Result: SMALL or HUGE

To
change the font, you must specify a recognized font (ex: Verdana,
Arial) if the user hasn't got the font, a default one will be displayed
:

Code:
[font=Arial]Arial font[/font] or [font=Comic Sans Ms]Comic sans MS font[/font]

Result: Arial font or Comic sans MS font



Appearance BBcodes:

Spoiler:
If you wish to aerate your message by inserting ligns, you can use this BBcode :

Code:
My first message[hr]My second message

Result:

My first message
My second message

If you wish to put text in index or exposure (useful for maths), two BBcodes are proposed : First method, to put in index :

Code:
x[sub]a+b[/sub]

Result: xa+b

Second method, for the exposure :

2nd day


Cool Effects:
Spoiler:

Four BBcodes producing effects on your messages are at your disposal. Although, this codes are only compatible under Internet Explorer with a phpBB2 forum. The first is a vertical mirror effect (Vertical symmetry) on the text :

SO THESE DONT WORK WITH THIS FORUM

Code:
[flipv]Vertical mirror effect[/flipv]

Result: Vertical mirror effect

The second is a horizontal mirror effect (horizontal symmetry) on the text :

Code:
[fliph]horizontal mirror effect[/fliph]

Result: horizontal mirror effect


If you wish a blur effect in your text, you can use this BBcode :

Code:
[blur]Blurred message[/blur]

Result: Blurred message

The last BBcode effect is the fading :

Code:
[fade]Fading effect[/fade]

Result: Fading effect

Bleh.
Well, you didn't lock this thread, so I assume you're ok with questions, so... is there a way to set it so that every time you go to post, your post will automatically be enclosed in a BBCode snippet? or do you have to enter the BBCode every time?

I'm pretty sure you'll have to enter it every time. I'll look into it though.

Figured as much, but hey, I don't mind too much, I just notice some people with the same formatting in every post and assumed there must be an easier way, don't worry too much about it though.
