BB codes

For your convenience, the toolbar above the text editor works in much the same way as most existing word processing applications. Your messages can be formatted in a number of different ways, as well as have external media inserted into them, for example.

Simply highlight the text that you wish to edit and click on the effect that you wish to use, or click on the effect and start typing, and it will format your text accordingly.

For inserting external media, spoilers, links, and images -or- changing the size, colour, and font of your text - the editor provides a variety of useful overlay boxes to assist you with these tasks.

The BB codes available on the site are listed below as well as examples of their use, should you wish to bypass this.
