BCD Tags are basically just a variation of the HTML tags that you are already familiar with.
They let you add various styles or links to the text that you submit. You should use them instead of
HTML because they are easier, and if you make a mistake it won't mess up the main page.
These are the tags that you can use to alter the appearance of the text you write to highlight certain
things or to add your own style to it:
Bold and Italic
To make some text bold or italic, enclose it in a pair of [b][/b] or [i][/i] tags like this:
[b]This text will be bold.[/b]
[i]This text will be italic.[/i]
If you want to add an image to your text, use the [img] tag. This is how you use it:
The source parameter is a URL that points to an image on a webserver somewhere. The image can be either
a GIF image or a JPG image. Note: You may omit the quotes if the URL does not contain any spaces. Also,
the http:// part is optional.
If you want to link to something, these are the tags for you. Which tag you should use depends on what
you want to link to.
This tag is for linking to other pages. When clicked on, it will open up the page in a new window.
Use it like this:
[link url="http://www.coolsite.com/page.html" name="This is a cool page"]
This will result in a link like this: This is a cool page
that links to http://www.coolsite.com/page.html. If you don't supply a name parameter the URL will be
used as the name.
This tag is for adding an e-mail address. When clicked on, it will open up a new mail with the correct
address. Use it like this:
This will result in a link like this: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to link to the member page of a member of this community, this is the tag that you should use:
This will give this link: Nom.
