BBcode

Post by LeroyBrown » Wed Aug 28, 2019 3:43 am

While many of you are used to the HTML style tags for posting Awkward Arguments uses BBCode instead. It is very similar with much of the code being the same, except BBcode used brackets [] instead of less than and greater than. <> The advantage of BBCode is that we can create custom tags as need. The disadvantage is that it can feel less flexible out of the box. Below is a list of BBCode currently available on Awkward Arguments.

For the out of the box tags PHPBB's site gives a pretty good description.

In addition, we have added custom tags for spoilers and for strikethrough Below is a simple list of tags. You can type them in manually or use the toolbar on the full editor. Just highlight the text you wish to change and click on the button. The text will be encapsulated in the correct code.

Bold

Code: Select all

[b][/b]

Italicized

Code: Select all

[i][/i]
underline

Code: Select all

[u][/u]
quote

Code: Select all

[quote][/quote]
  • List

Code: Select all

[list][/list]
  1. Number list

Code: Select all

[list=1][*]something
 [*] somthing else[/list]
  1. Letter list

Code: Select all

[list=1][*]something
 [*] somthing else[/list]


Pretty

Code: Select all

[color=hexcode[/color]
Change size

Code: Select all

[size=Font Size][/size]
Strikethrough

Code: Select all

[s][/s]
Hidden text.
Spoiler

Code: Select all

[spoiler][/spoiler]
In addition, we have a media tag but the site should convert most video media correctly without it. We also have a tag for adding images from an offsite location, but it is probably easier to store images here. It will also automatically display URLs as links.
