How to Use Editing Buttons

Postby Nick » Tue Nov 22, 2011 12:46 pm

When you are typing a message there are a pile of buttons above the editing window.

Clicking on one puts a code into your posting. Different codes do different things, hovering over a button shows you how to use it.

Most are common across all phpBB boards, but I have written several myself, such as ROFL

A special one is the Code Button which allows you to display code without it being enacted. So to show you the code for ROFL I post it thus:

Code: Select all
[ROFL][/ROFL]


Here is an example of the effect of some standard buttons from the editing window

Bold
Italic
Underscore
Quote

  • I like this one
  • And use it a lot
  1. I like this one
  2. And use it a lot
  3. See?

That was achieved using the buttons to produce

Code: Select all
[b]Bold[/b]
[i]Italic[/i]
[u]Underscore[/u]
[quote]Quote[/quote]
[quote="Nick Manually"]I sometimes manually add who I am quoting.[/quote]
[list][*]I like this one
[*]And use it a lot[/list]
[list=1][*]I like this one
[*]And use it a lot
[*]See?[/list]
