Howdy. Call me stupid but...I just can't figure out how to do certain formatting in the comments section! Making things bold is easy enough, but I was looking to get a comprehensive guide!


UPDATE (from @Octane, and thanks all for the help!) :

NOTE : For the following list, be sure to replace all the parentheses ''( )'' with brackets ''[ ]'':


Bold: (alternatively, you can also put an asterisk in front and at the end of a word)
(b)insert text here(/b)

Underscore:
(u)insert text here(/u)

Italic:
(i)insert text here(/i)

Strikethrough:
(del)insert text here(/del)

Superscript:
(sup)insert text here(/sup)

Subscript:
(sub)insert text here(/sub)

Spoiler:
(spoiler)insert text here(/spoiler)

Link, http://www.pushsquare.com/:
(url)insert URL here(/url)

Link in text:
(url=insert URL here)insert text here(/url)

Image or GIF:
(img)insert image URL here(/img)

For YouTube and Tweets you can just copy the URL and paste it here, the site handles the rest of the formatting for you!

  • Bullet points:
  • Add an asterisk in front of every new line
  • Just like this

And for a horizontal line:


Just use three minus signs ''-'' next to each other.

@smelly_jr well for spoilers is done the same way as bold just replace the word strong with spoiler and the same for images just type img instead as for youtube videos well just post the link and it should do it by itself

This was a place we could talk about games and people treated each other with respect but now the Trolls have started to invade us and i'm seriously thinking of leaving

@smelly_jr no problem

just remember your not allowed to post videos from you own youtube page on here as self advertising isn't allowed

@FullbringIchigo What if it's purely for sharing purposes! Like in the forums once, I suggested that someone play as a camper in Call of Duty to rack-up kills and posted a video of me doing just that. I only have 2 subscribers on my YouTube channel, for example, so I'm not trying to sell anything, LOL.

Make it a great day!

@smelly_jr yeah i asked on the screenshot thread because i thought posting vids would be a good idea too but apparently it's not allowed at all

@Tasuki Cool, thanks for sharing the link. That will be very useful.

Is there any possibility of creating that in the help and suggestions section and sticky it? Think it would be very useful for noobs (like me).

@JohnnyShoulder It's a pretty old one, and there's more you can do. I wrote an expanded version a couple of months ago, but I can't find it anymore

Replace all the parentheses ''( )'' with brackets ''[ ]'':

Bold: (alternatively, you can also put an asterisk in front and at the end of a word)
(b)insert text here(/b)

Underscore:
(u)insert text here(/u)

Superscript:
(sup)insert text here(/sup)

Subscript:
(sub)insert text here(/sub)

@Octane Cheers, that is quite an extensive list!

I might save that somewhere until there is something more permanent on the forum.

@smelly_jr Nice! If this could be stickied this could be the greatest day in the world ever.
