BB Code allows your posts to come alive by giving you the ability to format your posts in any way you like. This is a common feature on many forums, so we're sure many of you will already be familiar with it. Below is a cheat sheet for how to format your text using BB Code.

You can activate BB Code by surrounding your text with the BB Code tag you want like this: [TAG]Your text[/TAG]

Remember to always close your tags with a slash and the name of the tag: [/TAG]

BB Code Tags are NOT case-sensitive.
