BB Code - So that your posts work

Postby Greg B on Wed Aug 05, 2009 9:33 am

Occasionally you will see a post where the poster has used, for example,
[quo.te] test test [/quo.te] (that dot . is in there so the code won't work for the purposes of this demonstration)

and it looks like that instead of
test test

This happens because "Disable BBCode" has been selected in the options area at the bottom
of the post. If remove the tick in the box, (ie deselect Disable BBCode), the BB Code will work.

You can set the default in your User Control Panel.

- Go to User Control Panel
- Go to Board Preferences
- Go to Edit posting defaults
- tick the box for Enable BBCode by default

BBCode will then be enabled in all of your posts - you can disable it for a particular post by deselecting
"Disable BBCode" for that post.

My suggestion is that you enable BBCode by default in your User Control Panel and just leave it
that way for all your posts.

BBcode is working for me in this thread but not in the potm thread. Weird. :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?
