New [Post / Reply] Codes

Postby Al Darby » Fri Jun 18, 2010 7:58 pm

Five new BBCodes have been added to the [Post/Reply] editor

[ background= ]

 Shows your text on a coloured background here's a list of HTML Color Codes for you to use. I find it best to use the codes instead of the names, e.g. '#FFFFFF' not 'white' (without quotes). 

Tip: Sometimes the editor won't let you put a 'space' before/after your text (as I have), in which case I use a special character, a {non-breaking space}. To insert a {non-breaking space}, hold down the <Alt> key and enter 0160 using the numeric keypad on the right, release the <Alt> key.

[ centre ]
It allows you to "centre" your text


[ font= ]
It allows you to specify the font to be used for your text e.g.
Algerian
Arial Rounded MT Bold


[ hr ]
 Inserts a Horizontal Line 



[ youtube ]

Show a YouTube* video in your post



Refer to this post for more detailed instructions.

* Google Video is also available if needed, let me know

New BBCode added: [ font= ], see above.

It allows you to specify the font to be used for your text.

I don't recommend using any "strange" fonts, as they'll only be visible to people with the same fonts installed on their PC.

Here's a list of Web Safe Fonts
