Text Formatting
How to create bold, italic and underlined text
BBCode 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 it in
Code:
[b][/b], eg.

[b]Hello[/b]


will become Hello
Code:
For underlining use [u][/u], for example:

[u]Good Morning[/u]


becomes Good Morning

Code:
To italicise text use [i][/i], eg.

This is [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:
Changing the colour of text is achieved by wrapping it in
Code:
[color=][/color]. You can specify either a recognised colour name (eg. red, blue, yellow, etc.) or the hexadecimal triplet alternative, eg. #FFFFFF, #000000. For example, to create red text you could use:

[color=red]Hello![/color]

or

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


will both output Hello!

Changing the text size is achieved in a similar way using [size=][/size]. This tag is dependent on the template you are using but the recommended format is a numerical value representing the text size in pixels, starting at 1 (so tiny you will not see it) through to 29 (very large). For example:

Code:
[size=9]SMALL[/size]


will generally be SMALL

whereas:

Code:
[size=24]HUGE![/size]


will be HUGE!

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

Code:
[size=18][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 that it is up to you, the poster, to ensure that tags are closed correctly.
