2. Formatting Codes
Tools for these are fortunately implemented in the forum post creation! I'm including them in order to have everything in one place, and for copypasting purposes if you decide to pre-write a forum post separately.
Most of the text formatting can be combined. If you do that, keep an eye on the tag order.

e.g. [b][i]text[/i][/b]  is correct   ->  text
      [i][b]text[/i][/b]  is incorrect and won't show up right  ->  text[/b]

Useful Tools:
Visual-Based BBcode editor

Text Formats:

(Unwrap the Spoiler below to see the full list of formats)
Spoiler

Bold text
[b] Text [/b]

Itallic text
[i] Text [/i]

Underlined text
[u] Text [/u]

Scratched-out text
[s] Text [/s]

Glowing text
[glow=COLOR,2,300] Glowing text [/glow]

The number in the "glow" code doesn't really do anything here, but without any number put in the code breaks.
"Glow" value set on 1 ->  Glowing text
"Glow" value set on 50,000 ->  Glowing text


Sizing of the text:
You can use pretty much any number for the numerical value of the text size.

   'Oh, don't talk about trouble!' said the Duchess.
[size=8pt] Text [/size]

   'Oh, don't talk about trouble!' said the Duchess.
[size=12pt] Text [/size]

   'Oh, don't talk about trouble!' said the Duchess.
[size=18pt] Text [/size]



URL Hyperlinking:
This is to create clickable links. There's three ways you can do this:

1) Paste the URL
Simply pasting a link works.
https://netheril.net/forums/index.php

2) Assign the URL to a text
CLICK ME
[url=link] Text [/url]
   + the link text can be further formatted
   CLICK ME

3) Assign the URL to an image

[url=link][img]image_link[/img][/url]


Images:
Adding images in is very simple. They cannot be scaled though, so make sure they are of a correct size.

Unlinked image

[img]image_link[/img]

Linked image

[url=link][img]image_link[/img][/url]


Quoting:

Basic quote
Quote
Gossip text
[quote]Gossip text[/quote]

Marked quote
Quote from: Ritulienka
Gossip text
[quote=title/name]Gossip text[/quote]
[/color]


Lists:

Unordered List:
  • Text1
  • Text2
  • Text3
Code: [Select]

3. Tables - Perfect for Character Bios
Tables are easy as long as you don't get disoriented in all the "tr"s and "td"s.
tr = table row
td = table data (columns of the row)

Useful Tools:
Online Table Generator Tool

Table:
There's no way to add either a border or a cell background.
A basic table of 2 rows and 2 columns would be this:

███C1 row1████ ██C2 row1███
████C1 row2██████ ███C2 row2████

As you can see, the cell widths adjust across the rows so for the best looks I do not recommend using more than 1 row per table.

You can create more single-row tables separately by pressing 'Enter' instead of creating a new row. What that does is that your table's contents are going to look much better and tidied up.
You can also create tables within tables if you'd like to divide the space even more.


Code for the multiple single-rows:
Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td]1st. table column1[/td]
[td]1st. table column2[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
[table]
[tr]
[td]2nd. table column1[/td]
[td]2nd. table column2[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
