For instance if you wanted to explain to someone how to post an image you could type the BBCode and have it displayed as written for the purpose of teaching.



As if you didn't know!

BBCode is a code for forums. Like the [img][/img] tags. They are made to make sure nobody uses html. When forums used html there were viruses that were spread through forums. You can see BBCode when you are making a post. Like the buttons abve the text box.

I never realised I was posting on a bulletin board that uses BBcode either,

I have been a member from 2004 with over 1000 posts,

WHO AM I?
