An Introduction To BB Code

This forum uses MyBB forum software. One of the many features of this software is an intrinsic tag language called BB code. The following is a list of the codes specific to this site. For a list of the standard MyBB codes click this link: Full List of Standard MyBB Codes

BB Code can be added to a post by simply typing it in. Most tags us brackets ('[' and ']') to signify the beginning of the code and brackets with a forward slash ('/') to indicate the end.

Example:
Code:
[b]Bold text[/b] normal text

Result:

Bold text normal text

The example shows using the 'b' tag to emphasize text.

Here are some other codes that may be useful.

Hide tag

Search engines crawl over every site on the net indexing content. To prevent a search engine bot (also known as spiders) from indexing any content, just enclose it in 'hide' tags:

Example:
Code:
don't show this to Google show this to Google

Spoiler Tags

A spoiler replaces given text or pictures with a toggle button that allows users to view the information with a click. Some examples for appropriate uses of spoilers are: A long document quote, very large pictures or risque material.

To use spoilers just enclose any information inside 'spoiler' tags, like so:

Examples:
Code:
[spoiler]This text is spoilered[/spoiler]This text is not

Result:


This text is spoilered
This text is not

Code:
[pre verse] original poem and previous edits here between the pre verse tags [/pre verse]
this is your latest edit.

Result


this is your poem and edits so far

Code:
[P.S.] Place your Post script between the P.S. tags. [/P.S.]
this is your visible post.

Result


Place your Post script between the P.S. tags.

Spacing and Indention Tags

MyBB forum software ignores duplicate spaces and carriage returns, so to space out text or indent paragraphs, we've installed these specific spacing tags.

To add a single space, use the 'sp' tag:

Example:
Code:
Add a [sp] space

Result:
Add a  space

To indent a paragraph, use the 'ind' tag:

Example:
Code:
[ind]indent a line or within [ind] the line

Result:
[ind]indent a line or within [ind] the line

Quote Tags

There is an automated quote system within the forum that can be used to quote posts that other members have made, but if you want to quote material outside of the forum, you need to use the quote tags:

Example:

Code:
[quote]
Text to be quoted
[/quote]

Result:

Quote:Text to be quoted

It is also possible to label these quote blocks:

Example:

Code:
[quote=billy]
I am a weirdo
[/quote]

Results:

billy Wrote:I am a weirdo

MP3 Tags

You can also add MP3s and videos to your post with the 'mp3' and 'video' tags. For more help with that refer to this thread: Spicing Up Your Posts
