Question


Hi all,

I was wondering what things ppl actually do when it comes to adding bits of html and stuff when they post. All I can do is the smiley face and thats about it. Does anybody know what vbCode they can add and what is [IMG]?

Somebody had what looked like a quote bit but which was titled code, which I thought was quite neat.

Any help here?

I always use the code tages when posting source code.

Code:
They preserve
   the indentations in
      your code
I also use the quote tages:

I guess IMG is to post images. But I think that Jeremy, our site admin, has both HTML and IMG disabled. Look at the bottom of your screen after Posts: you will see:
  • HTML code is OFF
  • Smilies are ON
  • Vb code is ON
  • IMG code is off

I use the code feature most often. The bulleted lists usuall put too much whitespace in the post.
