Text Formatting
How to create bold, italic, underlined and lined-through text
BBCode includes tags to allow you to quickly change the basic style of your text. This is achieved in the following ways:
  • bold text: [b]Hello[/b]

    will become Hello
  • underlined text: [u]Good Morning[/u]

    becomes Good Morning
  • italic text: [i]Great![/i]

    would give This is Great!

How to change the text colour or size
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:
  • [color=red]Hello![/color]

    or

    [color=#FF0000]Hello![/color]

    will both output Hello!
  • [size=1]SMALL[/size]

    will generally be SMALL

    or:

    [size=5]HUGE![/size]

    will be HUGE!
  • [font=courier]Courier[/font]

    will generally be Courier

Can I combine formatting tags?
Yes, of course you can, for example to get someones attention you may write:

[size=5][color=red][b]LOOK AT ME![/b][/color][/size]

this would output LOOK AT ME!

We don'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:

[b][u]This is wrong[/b][/u]

Outputting code or fixed width data

[code]echo "This is some code";[/code]

All formatting used within [code][/code] tags is retained when you later view it.

[/list]

This would generate the following list:

This would generate the following list:

This would generate the following list:
  1. Red
