How to add additional formatting features such as Bold, Italic, Quote, etc...
You can add additional formatting features, such as "Bolding",
"Underlining", "Color", and even adding smilies
by using the HTML formatting toolbar buttons:
These buttons generate Formatting Codes you can use to change the appearance
of your text. Following is the list of formatting codes available along with
the associated button that will generate the code for you automatically:
Bold: enclose your text with [b] and [/b] . Example: This is [b]bold[/b] text. = This is bold text.
Italic: enclose your text with [i] and [/i] . Example: This is [i]italic[/i] text. = This is italic text.
Underline: enclose your text with [u] and [/u]. Example: This is [u]underline[/u] text. = This is underline text.
Center: enclose your text with [c] and [/c]. Example: This is [c]A Test[/c] text. This will cause the words "A Test" to be centered within the line.
Bulleted List: Create a bulletize list with [list] and [/list], and items in list with [*] and [/*].
Example:[list][*]Item 1[/*][*]Item 2[/*][*]Item 3[/*][/list]
This will cause the following list to be created:
Image: You can cause an image to appear within your message by
enclosing the url of the image with [img] and [/img]. Example:[img]http://www.xyz.com/nameOfgif.gif[/img].
Specify your desired font.
Selecting a particular font will immediately insert the HTML tags
in your message that will generate the desired font. For example
clicking on the "Times New Roman" font will cause the following
two html tags to be placed in your message:
[font=Times New Roman] [/font=Times New Roman]
You would then type the text to use this font between the
two tags, for example like so:
[font=Times New Roman] Your text would go here. [/font=Times New Roman]
Enclose your text with [fontcolor] and [/fontcolor] Example:[red]Text[/red] = Text Example:[blue]Text[/blue] = Text Example:[pink]Text[/pink] = Text Example:[brown]Text[/brown] = Text Example:[black]Text[/black] = Text Example:[orange]Text[/orange] = Text Example:[violet]Text[/violet] = Text Example:[yellow]Text[/yellow] = Text Example:[green]Text[/green] = Text Example:[gold]Text[/gold] = Text Example:[white]Text[/white] = Text Example:[purple]Text[/purple] = Text
Font Sizes: Example:[size=1]text[/size=1] = Text Example:[size=2]text[/size=2] = Text Example:[size=3]text[/size=3] = Text Example:[size=4]text[/size=4] = Text Example:[size=5]text[/size=5] = Text Example:[size=6]text[/size=6] = Text
Mode:Select the level of Help you need.
The "Mode" pull down menu changes the level of Help provided when
using the HTML toolbar. For example:
1. if you have the Mode button
set to "Basic"
and you click on the
(Bold) html button the system
will insert the html Bold tags in your message, i.e. [b][/b],
and you are suppose to type the text to be bolded between the
two html tags.
For example after typing your text to be bolded, the line
would look like this:
[b]Your bold text would be here [/b]
2. if you have the Mode button
set to "Help"
and you click on, for example, the
button, the system
will display a Pop-Up help window similar to the following:
3. if you have the Mode button
set to "Prompt"
and you click on the
button the system
will guide you through the creation of Bold Text by displaying
a small pop-up window, prompting
you to fill in the text you want to have made bold. The pop-up
window would look similar to the following:
FYI: Users knowing html, also have the option of utilizing the full set of html formatting tags.
You can embed html tags within your messages to create your desired effect.
