Suggest new bbcodes for XCore

Postby phalt » Thu May 03, 2012 4:26 pm

We've updated the posting form to remove all the clutter so you can just type and reply with ease.

We'd like to add a few new bbcodes (the options above the message box) now, we already have:

big

small

sub script

super script

and we'd like to get more suggestions!

Let's see... ooh, I like it! And no more messed-up smileys :-)

The textbox resize thing in your preview image isn't there though?

it would be nice to be able to set text color by using the color name as a tag itself like this: [blue]blue text[/blue]
the basic 16 colors would work.

yes, i'm perfectly aware of the [color] tag.

might as well have strikethrough in it's multiple forms.
strikethrough
[strikethrough]strikethrough[/strikethrough]
strikethrough <-- because <s> is actually a valid html tag.

and how about these?
center

[right]right[/right]

you could have a left tag for stuff like this:
center text
[left]left[/left]
more center text


if you are going to do something, do it right. :)

Smilies gone.

The textbox resize thing might be because you're in a different browser to the one in the screenshot.

Probably. It pretty much fills up the window now, anyway (that is, it starts
more than halfway down, and then fills up ;-) )

It's more usable than it was before, thank you!
