What is BB Code?

BB Code is a quick and easy way to add effects or formatting to your posts.
It is used in a similar format to HTML tags which you may already be familiar with.
Below is a quick guide to the most common BB Code uses.

In addition to the BBCodes such as bold or underline, there are several BBCodes that have no buttons.

SayBox allows a small amount of UBBC for text emphasis.

  • Put [u] [/u] around text you want underlined, example [u]text[/u]
  • Put [i] [/i] around text you want in italic, example [i]text[/i]
  • Put [b] [/b] around text you want in bold, example [b]text[/b]
  • Put [color=(color)] [/color] around text you want in a different color, example [color=ffffff]text[/color]
  • Put [sup] [/sup] around text you want to be shown in superscript, example [sup]text[/sup]
  • Put [sub] [/sub] around text you want to be shown in subscript, example [sub]text[/sub]
  • Put [url] [/url] around text you want to be a link, example [url=http://www.saybox.co.uk]text[/url]
  • Put [email] [/email] around text you want to link to an email address, example [email=email@anemailplace.com]text[/email]

Preserve Spacing

If you have ever tried to post text formatted with just spaces and tabs you will find that it losses its formatting upon posting. To keep the text formatted just use the [Code] BBCode (ex: [code]formatted text[/code]).

Unsend a PM

When sending a PM select the 'Track this message?' option. If you need to unsend that PM, go to the Message Tracker section of your Messenger. If the PM is still unread you can select it and delete it.
