Introduction to bb codes

bb-codes

#1

Bulletin board codes (bb) are a type of code used on forums and bulletin boards, I’m not sure how many of these will work on this site but most should (without spaces)

  • [b]text[/b ] - text in bold

  • [i]text[/i ] - text in italics

  • [u]text[/u. ] - underlined text

  • [center]text[/center ] - centered text

  • [right]text[/right ] - right text

  • [color=green]text[/color ] - coloured text

  • [img=100]link[/img ] - Picture, 100 pixels in height. The link should only work with local pictures (already on this site)

  • [hr ] - horizontal line

  • [br ] - line-break (in BB-codes, line-break should be entered with this code only, since pressing Enter will start a new line of code)

This site runs on Discourse with a few plugins and a lot of custom CSS.
Chose discourse because theres already 8 incel forums that use Xenforo and look the same.

Also, moving to About category

That would be great, it would make complexity easier.

cool cool, will do it in about 12 hours when less people are using the server, putting that feature in will give the website about 15 minutes downtime
