Help > Html-tags

To make your text a bit more fun, you can use special HTML-tags. We will add more HTML-tags in the future, but at the moment we support the tags listed below. Please make sure you have an equal amount of start brackets [ and end brackets ] when using the HTML-tags. Also make sure that you end your tags (for those that require it) with [/tag] as shown below, otherwise your text will probably look weird.



[nickname][/nickname]
If you want to make a link to another member here at Communities.com use those tags. Example: [nickname]Nickname[/nickname] will make a link to Nickname's profile.

[member][/member]
If you want to make a photo link to another member here at Communities.com use those tags. Example: [member]Nickname[/member] will show a photo of Nickname with a link to Nickname's profile.

[community][/community]
Use those tags if you want to make a link to a community. Example: [community]Cinemaniacs[/community] will make a link to the Cinemaniacs community.

[a href="link"]Description[/a]
If you want to make a link to another site, you can use the [a href] tag. For example: [a href="http://www.aol.com"]America Online[/a]. Notice that you have to have the "http://" before the adress to link to a site outside of Communities.com.

[br]
This is a very useful tag. It will make an empty row in your text, use it to make your text look better and easier to read.

[hr]
This will simply make a horizontal line, which can also make your text and place look better.

[font color=""][/font]
Set the text to a color of your choice. For example, [font color="red"]Will make this text red[/font]. If you want to be more specific about the color, you can use the exact rgb values between 0-f. Example: [font color="#5555aa"]Will make this text purple[/font]. Experiment!

[image][/image]
If you want to place a picture somewhere in your description you can use this tag. Example: [image]http://www.mysite.com/mypicture.jpg[/image]. If you want to be a bit more advanced and also want the picture to link to someplace, you can do it like this: [a href="http://www.mysite.com"][image]http://www.mysite.com/mypicture.jpg[/image][/a]. Then people will see mypicture.jpg and when they click on it they will be taken to www.mysite.com.

[center][/center]
If you want to center your text or images on the page you can use this tag.

[b][/b]
Example: [b]Will make this text bold[/b]

[i][/i]
Example: [i]Will make this text italic[/i]

[u][/u]
Example: [u]Will make this text underlined[/u]
