How to use BBCode

Howdy everyone 🐸

As you might know, we've included BB Code into the boards now, to make it more accessible for everyone to use! Although you can still use the buttons along the tool bar across the top, you can also input the code yourself meaning there are loads more things we can do!

Below is a little cheat sheet of everything we've found you can do so far, as well as the code needed to make it work. Have a play around with it all - copy and paste the code for whatever you'd like to create!

    So these are the colours I've had a play around with so far. Like the red above, you just put the name of the colour into the code

    red
    yellow
    blue
    green
    orange
    purple
    pink
    light blue
    grey
    aqua
    brown

    You can also use the HEX code for the colour, like the blue in the post above. Here's a great website to find the hex code for a colour. It's the code with the # before it :)

    Wow this is cool.
    Why am I not surprised that there is a rickroll on here as well. Haha.

    Is there any way of making links different colours? @The Mix

    Umm I don't think so @Dancer as the link overrides the colour. Lets see if this works:

    this text is red

    Edit: sadly, the hyperlink blue overrides any colour :(

    You can change the text colour?

    This means gradients are a thing!

    There's a website for it: https://www.stuffbydavid.com/textcolorizer

    Have fun with it and go crazy~ :joy:
