Introduction to BBCodes

What is BBCode?

BBCode is widely used in forums.

When is BBCode used?

It's used when you would like to make your post more colourful, change your font, bold, italicize, underline, quote, hide, add an image, add an url, etc.

When you post something, there are "Code Buttons" above your text box to help guide those who don't know BBCode with the basic, most used ones. As you can see, they are not very useful in THIS forum specifically, due to the fact that every time you click on one of the buttons, the code ends up at the end of your post, so you have to move it if you want to, for example, bold something you typed before.

Great, is BBCode hard to learn?

Not at all! You should be fine if you know html code, because the two are alike in many ways. (the most notable difference is that the "<>"'s are replaced with "[]"'s

NOTE: BBCode remains the same, but for different forums, the appearance might be different
(eg. for the spoiler code, which is:
Code:
[spoiler]Example[/spoiler]
The result of the code in THESE forums is this:
Spoiler:
Example
See? It's different! (Click on the white box to see)

(in which you need to click and drag your mouse downwards and highlight the text in order to see it)
Or, it might have a button labeled "show", which you can click on to reveal the text in the box.

Simple Coding

Mostly, BBCode consists of [, ], and /. The format is usually:

[example] Type stuff here [/example]

Or when there's a variable involved:

[example=variable-here] Type stuff here [/example]

Capitalization does not matter...

Here is a list of codes that are used a lot, and are very basic:

  • Replace "text here" with the text you want to modify...
Text Modifiers:

Bold:
Code:
[B]text here[/B]

Italic:
Code:
[I]text here[/I]

Underline:
Code:
[U]text here[/U]

Strike:
Code:
[S]text here[/S]

Size: (THIS IS A VARIABLE CODE!)
Code:
[SIZE=variable-number]text here[/SIZE]

Colour: (THIS IS A VARIABLE CODE!)
Code:
[SIZE=variable-color]text here[/SIZE]

NOTE: You must use American spelling for the colour code to work!

Linking

Url: (THIS IS A VARIABLE CODE!)
Code:
[URL=variablelink]text here[/URL]

Email:
Code:
[EMAIL]text here@emailprovider.com[/U]

Others:

Quoting: (THIS CAN BE A VARIABLE CODE!)
Code:
[QUOTE]text here[/QUOTE]

As a variable:

[QUOTE=variablename]text here[QUOTE]
