Hi! welcome to our first "how to post tutorial"
This tutorial is about the different functions you have when editing/creating a post. Let's start with the basics.

We have two ways to post:



One is Quick reply/post

[Image: sdjlIgg.png]
Quick reply/post is the tiny box you have at the end of a thread with not much options, just the basics.


And New reply
photo soon.
Is the option under the quick post. Next to it is Preview post.

Let's meet our first group of buttons
Bold|Italic|underline|Strike photo

Let's start with Bold
[b]Text here[/b]
if you don't want to use the code, just, select the word/phrase you want to bold and click the B button and it will be bold automatically. Normally bold is used to empathize a word/phrase, depending what the topic is about

Example
I think, in my opinion, Sailor Moon is the best magical series because it makes me laugh

The next button is Italic
[i]text in the middle[/i]
italic main function is to give a more cursive "font" layout, people use italic mostly in fan-fictions, to explain the reader an action that is occurring in the story, of course, italic can be used for anything.

Example
Hold it right there! - said Sailor Moon as she arrived with the other senshi.

Next one is Underline text
[u]text here[/u]
The word explains itself, this button underlines if i may be redundant your text.


The letter S is for Strike, the code for strike is
[s]text here[/s]
It is used normally to "scratch" a word/phrase we find irrelevant to the topic.

Example
About Edward Elric, my one of crushes i hope he gets cool outfits in the new anime.

Our next group of buttons, this groups are just for alignment
left|center|right|justify photo soon


[from left to right] Align to the left, center, align to the right, justify
The best way to understand this options with with examples, let's start with the first button.

Align to Left, code
[align=left]text/img[/align]

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.  Curabitur condimentum hendrerit magna in imperdiet.
Quisque urna odio, ultrices et laoreet.
Center, code
text/img
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Curabitur condimentum hendrerit magna in imperdiet.
Quisque urna odio, ultrices et laoreet.

Align right, code
[align=right]Test/img[/align]

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Curabitur condimentum hendrerit magna in imperdiet.
Quisque urna odio, ultrices et laoreet.





Justify, code
[/align]
[align=justify]text/img[/align]
[align=center]
This one, works best, when you have an extended paragraph, this does not work with images.
Quote:Normal paragraph
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Fusce blandit sagittis elit nec lacinia. Phasellus convallis aliquet lobortis. Pellentesque vestibulum congue magna sit amet interdum. Sed et eros quis eros scelerisque convallis. Ut justo augue, sagittis eu vestibulum sit amet, placerat vitae erat. Curabitur sagittis nunc gravida ante bibendum vel commodo sem posuere. Duis eleifend ullamcorper mollis. Duis sed quam elit. Mauris luctus commodo lacus, vel egestas sapien tristique vel. Cras pharetra urna auctor ante euismod lacinia id pretium enim. Duis vel vehicula ante. Fusce consequat elit a tortor elementum quis elementum sem tempus. Cras luctus nisl non justo vestibulum sed eleifend eros condimentum. Sed et ante dui.

Curabitur ornare nunc et augue ornare a semper nulla mattis. Integer quam augue, rutrum a porta et, euismod et libero. Fusce ac metus massa. Fusce a tellus magna, sit amet pellentesque orci. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Mauris sodales vehicula laoreet. In neque massa, lacinia facilisis iaculis at, ornare ut ligula.

Vivamus non arcu nec dui commodo imperdiet. Praesent vitae magna nisi, non egestas orci. Nam bibendum lobortis porta. Nunc sit amet nisl felis, feugiat faucibus nisl.

Quote:Justified paragraph

Noticed how clean looks your paragraph now?



Next group
Hr|photo|email|link photo
Break line or HR
text
[hr]
text
This creates a line that separates text. This is really helpful if you're posting a fanfiction. Something to highlight here, this is the only code that doesn't need to be closed like the others, what do I mean to close? If you notice, most of the codes have an opening
[tag here] and an ending [/tag here], if you don't add the "/" at the end of a code, it will not work, but this code is the exception.
Insert an image
[img]photo url[/img]
This allows you to post photos in the posts. XD




Insert an email
[url=email url]text[/url]
This allows you to add your email to text. Please don't save your email around randomly.
Insert an link and unlink
[/align]
[align=center][url=url]text[/url][/align]
[align=center]
This allows you to post links while the button next to it will remove the link from the text.

Next group
List group photo
First is List
[list]
[*]text
[*]text
[/list]
You need to know that this option only adds one

[*], so if you have a long list, you're going have to add more of this options.



Second option Ordered List, code for this one
[list=1]
[*]text
[*]text
[/list]
The default number is 1, that means "1 list". If you change the number is not going to work.
[*]

Next group
Code|PHP|Quote photo
First button is Code
[code][b][i]text[/i][/b][*/code]
This will allow you to put things in a code box that shows you all the formatting the text as on it.


Next is PHP.
[php][*/php]
this I don't really know anything about nor how it works.

Last is quote.
[quote]text text or even a photo[/quote]

How to use properly this code

Nullam lacinia, quam et consectetur porttitor, tellus est scelerisque libero, sit amet malesuada sem lorem quis risus. In hac habitasse platea dictumst. Duis mollis convallis leo vel porta.
