Formatting help when posting
« on: April 10, 2016, 04:12:29 PM »

Could we please have a link to help on formatting when composing a post.

For example I used the Insert Hyperlink button to make a link but it is not obvious how to specify the link address.

This page at SMF has relevant information though I would hope that they have the instructions laid out more clearly elsewhere.

The Kitz Help links take you to some help on formatting at SMF. Unfortunately the See Also links there are broken.

Hi.

This is something I did many many years ago which may help

http://www.kitz.co.uk/tech/bbcode.htm


Admittedly it is a bit old now and needs tidying up for some of the more recent additions to BBcode.

Following on from your post, Ive updated the Bulletin Board Code for Forums and created a new topic.  That way it can permanently be stickied at the top of the forum and easily found by anyone looking for help with bbcode.

http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php/topic,17459.0.html

Thanks for the suggestion.   The original page was done about 10yrs ago, so it was due a re-vamp.   :)

Thanks for updating the Kitz page on BB codes. You might consider linking to it from the Help page.

I have raised a bug report at SMF asking them to fix the broken content of their online manual.

It is a known problem at SMF. The workaround to to use this URL instead.
