On the forums, you can use a variety of tools to format your posts. These are special codes or instructions that you add to make your format nicely. Most of the supported codes are based on "BBcode", so if you are familiar with this then edeb8's system should be very easy to pick up.
To make a piece of text bold, surround the text with [b] and [/b] tags. For example:
[b]This text will be bold![/b]
You can also make a text italic by surrounding it with [i] and [/i], or underlined with [u] and [/u]. If the short codes are too difficult to remember, you can also use [bold], [italic] and [underline] in the same way.
In addition, text surrounded by an [s] tag will be "struck through" or crossed out, and text surrounded by [tt] or [ttext] tags will be drawn in monospace (tt stands for typewriter text). Remember that when you close the tag, you must begin the inside of the brackets with a forward slash ("/").
You can specify a custom color for your text using a hexadecimal color code, common in HTML. For example, red is #ff0000, while yellow is #ffff00 and blue is #0000ff. You can also use the shorthand form, such as #f00 for red. You specify a color as follows:
[color=#f00]this text will be red[/color]
[color=#00f]this text will be blue[/color]
And so on.
Any lines in your post starting with ">" will be displayed in green ("greentext").
Any URLs in your post should be automatically converted into links. You must use an "absolute" URL (ie include the "http://" part).
If you'd like to hotlink a particular text, you can use the [link] tag, like this:
URLs pointing to a picture or Youtube video will be automatically embedded, so you can view the picture or the video directly through edeb8.
