    When I go to post /reply, I now see a message above the box to type in that says:

    You can use BBCodes to format your content.
    Your account can’t use Advanced BBCodes, they will be stripped before saving.

    I may or may not want to use BBCodes to format the content of my posts, but what are they and where can I find them?

    BBcodes are (optional) short codes that can be used to format and style the text in topic/replies. Here is a list of some of them:

    Bold {content}
    Italic {content}
    Underline {content}
    Strikethrough {content}
    Text size {content}
    Text colour {content}

    Unfortunately, it looks as though we can’t post the actual code to use in a post, I’ve been trying.Is it possible to add a link to the box that says “You can use BBCodes to format your content.”, linking to an online list of the actual codes?

    Just a thought: apart from the styling options already available in the bar above the text content box, the only additional codes we might want to use are underline, size and color.

    Far too complicated for me, I can manage BoldItalics and strike out and that’s about as complicated as I want to get I think!

    In liking Barty’s post I seem to have ruined the effect!
