HTML-problem

Postby Teherean » Mon Jan 30, 2012 9:30 pm

Hello!

It seems that HTML doesn't work when I post a forum message. I checked my account, and HTML should be working. I can't properly quote someone... please help!

You don't use HTML in the forum, you use BBCode. It's similar, but not quite the same.

E.g. to link-
HTML: <a href="urlgoeshere">link name</a>
BBCode: [url= urlgoeshere ]link name[/url ] (remove the spaces to make this actual code)

Easiest thing to do if you don't know the syntax for BBcode is simply to use the buttons at the top of the post creation window.

To quote someone, use these codes:

Code: Select all
[quote="Teherean"]Hello!
It seems that HTML doesn't work when I post a forum message.[/quote]


The coding will automatically be inserted in the reply box if you hit the quote-button next to the post you want to quote. It's generally considered good netiquette not to quote if you are replying to the last post in a thread.
