Introduction to BB-Tags

Due to the various forums on the internet, there can be many kinds of supported BBCode. If you don't know what it is, then let me explain. BBCode is used for two main reasons:
1. Formatting text when html is required to be restricted.
2. Making it easier for the user to remember the formatting techniques wit the use of [tags].

The [tags] are written in a very simple manner and perform funcitons like making text bold, adding url links and many others.

Here is an example on how simple BB-Tags are written:
[b]BOLD TEXT[/b] would look like this BOLD TEXT

Using the above technique combined with the features supported, you can create proffessional looking posts quite easily on DS-Scene.

List of supported tags

Many of the tags have assigned buttons except for a small few. There are a few that you must type them manually. If the code has an icon, it is clickable when you create your post. If it has "list" in the icon column, there is a drop down list when you create your post. If it has "none" in the icon column then you must type it manually

Here are the different types:

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why does DS-Scene enforce the use of BB-Tags.
A. HTML can cause problems with the layout of the page. Therefore it is necessary to force users to post using BB-Tags

Q. I've tried combining tags but they are not appearing correctly. What am I doing wrong?
A. Some tags do not like being overlapped or mixed with other tags. In general you should be able to combine the tags but some combinations can cause errors or the post not to display as intended

Q. Can I use PHP or similar tag from A.N.Other forum?
A. No you cannot. All compatable tags are detailed here though requests for new tags will be considered.

Q. Can I have more information on BBCode?
More information on tags and BBCode can be found on Wikipedia.

I have updated the spoiler and quote boxes so you can now make custom headers. Here is the syntax and an example

Heading goes here 
Text goes here

Spoilers work aswell

Here is the code used to create the boxes you see here

[quote=Heading goes here]Text goes here[/quote]

[spoiler=Spoilers work aswell]:w00t:[/spoiler]
