Once you get the hang of the BB Color Code. You may want to expand your color horizon of the BB Code. This link will take you to a complete HTML True Color Chart.
Complete HTML True Color Chart
Tip: When applying the basic BB Color Code, available when posting on Bleeping Computer. It will look like this.
When using the many choices within the Complete HTML Color Chart. It will look like this.
Instead of applying the name of the color as part of the code. Insert the numeric color code.
When choosing a specific font, It will look like this.
[font=comic sans ms]Hello[/font]
When you want to choose a specific size for your text. This is the BB Code to use.
Now for creating bold text. Use this code when doing so.
For italic text. Use this code.
And last but not least. The code to underline text.
Now let's use all the BB Code together.
[color=green][font=comic sans ms][size=4][b][i][u]This is how it will look prior to posting.[/u][/i][/b][/size][/font][/color]
This would be the outcome of applying all of the above code.
Note: When someone states that "tags" are not closed. They are speaking of using the full and correct BB Code.
One other thing I'd like to mention is how to post a hyperlink/URL.
You can use the BB Code in this also.
