BB Code - underlining/inserting links/etc...

Postby Gram » Tue Jun 13, 2017 7:03 pm

Help please; I've tried previously to format text and/or insert links, and felt sure I'd seen it done by others - just today, someone posting soon after me had inserted a link! However, when using the post reply (or new topic) box, BB Code is shown as "OFF" - how can I enable it, or is it only within admin/moderators' powers?
I've searched, found all the info on how to use BB Code, but can't find how to switch it on..... :?

.....Searching a little more, I've found (in the "What is BBCode?" section) this note - "....Whether you can actually use BBCode in your posts on the forum is determined by the administrator....."
So - can I be turned on, please? (If you'll pardon the expression.... ;) )

Gram have you tried doing it yourself as you can go into "messages" then Board preferences and on left hand side 3 choices "Edit Postal Default" and you click on and you should see whether it is set to yes or no. Just looked at mine and it's set to yes.

Hi and thanks for the idea; I've checked and mine also shows "yes" - but in the post reply section, BBCode is still "off"..... :(
When you open the reply box, does it show "on" ?
(Smilies are shown as "on", and as you can see, I can insert those..... ;) )
... I've also tried (in that section) switching BBCode off, logging out, log in again, switch code to yes - but still no effect.... :(

Gram, everything on mine is set to "yes" except.....

Hide my online status:
Changing this setting won’t become effective until your next visit to the board..."No

and

Notify me upon replies by default...........this is set to "No"

and

BBCode is set to "off" on post reply on my page

Hopefully Dan will get back to you soon.
