How to use BB Codes

By Yasir RFL

Hi Guys

Welcome to my first Tutorial
I will teach you how to use BB Codes

How to create bold, italic and underlinedtextBBCode 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 itin, e.g.Hellowill becomeHello*.For underlining use, for example:Good MorningbecomesGood Morning*.To italicise text use, e.g.This isGreat!would give This isGreat!

{{{{{{{{Don't Space}}}}}}}}

How to change the text colour or sizeTo alter the colour 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:*.Changing the colour of text is achievedby wrapping it in. You can specify either a recognised colour name (eg. red, blue, yellow, etc.) or the hexadecimal triplet alternative, e.g.#FFFFFF, #000000. For example, to create red text you could use:Hello!orHello!Both will outputHello!*.Changing the text size is achieved in a similar way using. This tag is dependent on the template the user has selected but the recommended format is a numerical value representing the text size in percent, starting at 20 (very small) through to 200 (very large) by default. For example:SMALLwill generally beSMALLwhereas:HUGE!will beHUGE!

******************DONT SPACE************

Can I combine formatting tags?Yes, of course you can, for example to get someones attention you may write:LOOK AT ME!this would outputLOOK AT ME!We donÂ’t recommend you output lots of text that looks like this though! Remember it is up to you, the poster, to ensure tags are closed correctly. For example the following is incorrect:This is wrong

BB Codes
[ b ] your text [ /b ]

[ i ] your text [ /i]

[u ] your text [/u ]

your text [ / size ]

[colour=] your text [/ colour ]
