BBCode differences
« on: June 09, 2006, 07:29:50 am »
I just want to point out to you guys the major differences I've come across in the BBCode for the forums so far.

At the moment, I can only think of two:

Code: [Select]
[url=]This is a url[/url]
instead of

Code: [Select]
[url=""]This is a url[/url]
The second one will not work right.  These forums are not meant to have quotes used in the url tag


There is also a difference in how font size is handled.  In the old forums, you ended it with
Code: [Select]
[/size=3] where 3 is the size you were using.  Now you just do

Code: [Select]

There are also differences in how these forums handle lists.  See the link below for information

 a more complete guide can be found at

For the record, this is the standard for BBCode... the old forums were nonstandard when it came to this, along with many other things

The color change is also different:

Code: [Select]
[color=red]This is blue text, lolz[/color]
instead of

Code: [Select]
[red]And this is green text, LAMO[/red]
That's about all I've noticed myself.

Oooh, the code tags finally do what they're supposed to do and ignore all other tags.  I love these new forums.
