Bbcode help


1- What is the BBCode ?

The BBCode is not a programming language, it is a simple special implementation that is used instead of Html.
Most often on web pages that offer interactivity between the user and the website in question use the bbcode to leave a message, write a review, answer a survey and so on. The use areas of bbcode are multiple.
The bbcode is used mainly to format the text.
Allowing or forbidding bbcode in forms is up to the webmaster (the owner of the website).
As we just said, the bbcode looks like HTML, the tags are between two (2) pairs of square brackets:
[opening tag] an element content [closing tag].
This syntax looks like <p> element's text </p>
On the fabb forum, the use of bbcode is allowed with the strict minimum of tag.

2- How to use the bbcode

You can write your entire text, once you are done, you can proceed with formatting it. Select the word and click on the desired tag.
Before clicking submit or validate depending on the form you are on, click preview to see how your text will be formatted.
Important note: some square brackets have the symbol =, this means that it is an attribute, you insert directly after the sign = the content of the attribute without spaces after =

3- How to format the text

For example, i select the following sentence : My text in bold and i click on B. The selected text will automatically move between the square brackets [B] and [/B].
The same principle applies to other tag.

Example Tag Render
Text in bold [b] Text in bold [/b] Text in bold
underlined text [u-line] underlined text [/u-line] underlined text
strikethrough text [barre] strikethrough text [/barre] strikethrough text
left aligned [left] left aligned [/left] left aligned
(this text is aligned to the left of the cell)
Justified text [justify] Justified text [/justify] Justified text
(this text is justified )
Right aligned [right] Right aligned [/right] Right aligned
(this text is aligned to the right of this cell)
Alias URL [url=https://www.forum-fabb.com] fabb [/url] fabb
Anchor [anchor] https://www.forum-fabb.com [/anchor] https://www.forum-fabb.com
Email address [email=truc@server.DTL] contact me [/email]
(will trigger the user’s messagerie client.)
insert an image [img] link of your image [/img] Note on Images
1- The images will be resized to 300px length x 200px height.
2- The image must have an absolute link, i.e. from an external server. You cannot insert an image from your machine.
Insert quote [quote=auteur] [/quote] Note :
Quote is a tag a little different from other tags.
It will be added to it automatically a little style. Replace the word "auteur" by the person who quoted the expression.
Example :
[quote=Japanese] the customer is king. [/quote] will display :
Japanese says:: the customer is king
Insert a code [code=] Your code[/code] Note :
after the sign "=", without leaving any space, specify the type of script you want to insert.
for example php.
[code=php]
if(isset($myvar)){
echo 'the variable'. $myvar .' exists ';
}
[/code]

This code will display
<?php
if(isset($myvar)){
echo 'the variable'. $myvar .' exists';
}?>

4- Insert emoji

At the place where you want to insert smiley, click on the emoji of your choice. It will be added to the text automatically.

5- indicative icons

In addition to what was explained above regarding the bbcode, on the forum exist icons that allow the member to easily find himself between the topics consulted and not consulted.First of all, you must be connected to see these icons. The meaning of each of these icons is as follows:

msg pm lu : You have already accessed all the private messages received.

msg pm non lu : You have private messages that you have not yet accessed.
