ITT: I explain how to edit how your text looks on MOBILE

Recommended Posts

Ok so people complain that THE STYLE EDITING BUTTONS and stuff aren't available on mobile. I've explained many times and I plan on making this the last time so HAVE A TUTORIAL MATES.

Note: I'm going to explain stuff I find most common. Things I don't see a ton (like fonts that are not default I can't think of examples lol) I'm not explaining because 1. I never see it outside certain few people's posts and 2. I forget how to do them myself because they're so rare and I'm on mobile rn so.


LESSON I: BASICS
So, how this works is we're going to wrap our text in tags. These tags are very simple and pretty easy to remember. I'm going to use code tags to show you what they look like when typing posts, like so

[tag]stuff I will tell you[/tag]

As can be seen, the text is surrounded by [tag] and [/tag]. Tag is not a real tag, however. the text that replaces "tag" indicates what it does.

The "/" indicates the tag is a closing tag. 


LESSON II: BOLD, UNDERLINE, ITALICS, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY STRIKETHROUGH.
So, this stuff, probably the most common bits of formatting in existence, as well as the easiest tags.
Here they are:

[b]BOLD[/b]
[i]ITALICS[/i]
[u]UNDERLINE[/u]
[s]STRIKETHROUGH[/s]

BOLD
ITALICS
UNDERLINE
STRIKETHROUGH

Note: For some reason (I really have no idea why) Underline tags don't always work. It depends on what you are posting from.
 



LESSON III: COLOR, HIGHLIGHTING, AND SIZE
Ah color, it beautifies posts. Size lets you emphasize headings. So handy, right?

[color=#008000]GREEN TEXT[/color]
[background=#ffff00]I THINK THIS IS HIGHLIGHTED YELLOW[/background]
[size=8]BIG TEXT[/size]

GREEN TEXT
I THINK THIS IS HIGHLIGHTED YELLOW
BIG TEXT

I know what you're thinking. But Glac, I want a color besides green/a highlight besides yellow!
Never fear, THAT my friends, is why we love google. Search "HTML color codes" to find the six digit codes for almost any color you can think of. Replace the "008000" or "ffff00" with the code to change to whatever you want.
Standards:
Color = 282828
Background = ffffff
Size = 4


LESSON IV: OTHER RANDOM STUFF
Here I will put the rest of what pops to mind

man back when the forum post textbox was GOOD and showed codes I'm sure everybody would have known they could use codes on their phone but then the forum changed the textbox format and now lots of people have no clue they don't need to rely on buttons :c
