Hey, really great guide, though all I wanted is how the url and image combine, I didn't know you can combine bold and italics, thanks...

Anyway, I think that you should mention the fact that there are some buttons which would make BBcode easier for you to type, its at the top of the text box (the one that says bold, italic etc...)

Also, with the exception of image, you must press each button twice, one for opening the Code and one for closing it. Another exception is when you highlight something in the text box and then click on any button.

hmm...I suppose in the next guide I will probably do so. I have to fix a few minor errors anyways. I might post a 3.1 when I get around to it, and since I do find myself using the buttons sometimes for saving time I could give an extra guide to show how to use them quickly...except the image and link buttons which I despise. Also its better to learn the codes so you can combine them, and use them on forums that don't have the buttons, so I don't really want people to become reliant on the buttons. Also with the amount of glitches that go on with AG, you never know when one that keeps people from using the buttons could pop up, but still I will be sure when I get around to it to add that to the guide if I can.

That was a good idea to put it in a picture, because then the bbcodes don't actually take action.

I'm just testing this for fun, cuz I never knew about this bbcode until this guide. As a longtime member I figured out the rest.

[quote=crimsonblade555]*sigh* OK I just had a look at it and I saved the image with the wrong image size set so here is the real image(hopefully)[/quote]

um yeah duh :P

You can also combine a quote with another quote (so like when you want to quote someone who quoted another post)

Ok below, "person 2" will quote "person 1", write what ever after, post it and person 3 is quoting person 2, just to make it easier to understand.

[QUOTE][QUOTE]<first quote here (ie, what person 1 has written)[/QUOTE]<here is what person 2 has written>[/QUOTE]

example:

[quote]hello I am person 1
Hi person 1, I am person 2[/quote]

If this does not work, I'll try again.

well....yes, though that is not combining two different BB codes, but it is possible, and has been used before by some. I will be sure to note that.

Are you sure that the [quote=name*] one works? I've never seen that being used here.

Mind if i try it out?
