Title: Bulletin Board Codes
Post by: PeterC on 30 January 2016, 08:27:05
If you want to make your post or reply look better you can use the WSYWYG editor (toggled on or off by (http://mapping4ops.org/Themes/greengrass1/images/bbc/toggle.gif)), or you can use Bulletin Board Codes (also called BBCodes or BBC). (Note that there is a link at the foot of every page on this forum to this page about BBCodes.)

There is a BBCode organisation (http://www.bbcode.org/) where you can see some background. BBCodes can be nested, but for things to bear in mind with this see here (http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Bulletin_board_code).

The BBCodes available for you to use on this forum are:
