Hi to all the forum!

I maded a check up in the entire forum to realise then no one got the idea to do a BBCode guide. In more alot of new members ask questions about this topic. So, I decided to resolve this issue.

In this post it will be question of the basic comandes of this forum language.

Question 1 : What is the BBCode?

Answer : BBCode or Bulletin Board Code is a lightweight markup language used to format posts in many message boards. The available tags are usually indicated by square brackets ([ ]) surrounding a keyword, and they are parsed by the message board system before being translated into a markup language that web browsers understand—usually HTML or XHTML.

BBCode was first introduced in 1998 by the messageboard software Ultimate Bulletin Board (UBB). This is why BBCode is sometimes referred to as UBBCode.

Sources : Wikipedia

Question 2: How did i use it.

Answer : The BBCode is a basic codage used in forums to format posts in messages boards. Like it say's in the previous answer, to use it you will surround the Content then you wan formate by square brackets [ ]. In those [ ], it will have a effect key ath the begening and a other square brackets whit the same key whit a / in.

Exemple : The Bold effect is represented by the b or B in the square brackets.

Bold effect [b ] Bold effect[/b]

The effect and how reproduct it:




[u ] Underline[/u]

Position of the texte

If you wan make some subdicision the text positionement commande will be a really good idea, there is the existing effect and how use them.

The text align (left/center/rigth) is use to make your text reprouped in a block text.

Example :

Support Your Team

"[Teamwork] is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." -Andrew Carnegie

While we all carry a diverse set of individual ambitions and expectations into a game of League of Legends, once we hit the Field we're a part of a team. For better or worse, our fates are intertwined with that of our teammates. Once the game gets into full swing, you have to make a choice between being a positive force for your team, or contributing to your own demise.

The center align (use to subdivise whit a title

Being a good team player begins at champion select. Be open minded when considering the needs of your team. If you're the last one to pick, try to fill a niche in your team that hasn't already been filled. If everyone's picked and something stands out as a deficiency in your team composition, try asking for another player to fill the gap, or change roles to embrace that responsibility yourself. Remember, that by taking on a role you don't normally play, you'll learn more about unfamiliar champions and increase your own skill level.

The rigth align :

Once you get in game, try to keep an open line of communication. Warn your teammates if someone is missing from your lane, or if something is placing them in immediate danger. If they're not paying attention to chat you can always try pinging the map. Just remember that one ping is enough! Also, remember that you have to be there to contribute, so don't leave the game or go AFK! Encourage players who are having trouble, and congratulate those who are playing well. And most of all, if you're having a bad game don't take it out on your team!

The Indent : use to recreat the tab effect in all the text program. (Window/OpenOffice and other) Used to increase the space of the text to the rigth. Main usage on quote and list
The deacrease indent is the opposite. If you make iddent on a huge part of text it will mitigate the effect.

The list

The list is use to organise a enumeration of things. The main usage is for rules and announce topics in a poste.

You have to know then its possible to use 2 types of list : the regular and the numerical one.

The regular is using a dot in fornt of all lines and the numerical is using a gradation number begening whit 1 and ending until you decide.

Exemple :
  • Test
  • Demo
  1. Sample
  2. You got it?

If you ended a list and you wan edit it to add a other line, put a * into square brackets

The web link

If you want geev acces to a web site, a post or any things like this, this option is a must. It will allow the reader to go directly to the concerned page. (best example is made by under this post.

To use this option, use the inset link buttum, it will set this : Switch the ()by [ ] (URL="")Put your link here(/URL)

That it for the moment, i invite you to folow the next topic to learn how :

  • Use Email link
  • Use Quote
  • Use Link remover

I will geev tips to combine some effects for list, text positionement and more!
And alot more!
