Understanding BBCode
« on: August 24, 2022, 02:20:46 AM »
BBCode ("Bulletin Board Code") is a lightweight markup language used to format messages in much Internet forum software, first introduced in 1998. The available "tags" of BBCode are usually indicated by square brackets ([ and ]) surrounding a keyword, and are parsed before being translated into HTML.

Bulletin Board Code can be used to add markup to forum messages. For example, to highlight the word 'house' you can type house. All Bulletin Board Code tags are surrounded by square brackets ('[' and ']').

So let's go through the BBCode available for you to use on this forum as you see another new topic line by line. You can either type it or press the buttons above.
