how do u do hyperlinks that say like "This is a link to my page" without saying all the http:armorgames.com/user/megacooper stuff?


On the forums, you can use BB Code. However, that is off-topic, so I will simply redirect you to the right place.

This was actually pretty helpful.
I care to add on with my knowledge of HTML.

Just like Master565 said, Headers are defined as {h1} {h2}...all the way to {h6}. {h1} is the largest while {h6} is the smallest.

Moving on. You always have to remember to end your codes like you did with bb codes. They are both the same in ending.
Ex: {h1}Always Remember to END!{/h1}
Ex: Always Remember to END!

For the people confused with this matter and are embarrassing themselves...remember that this
{ =

Also I wouldn't make your About so fancy, moderators are disliking the things HTML is doing. One or two colored codes are fine.

Also, if you want to ever write regulary.
You can type
{p}Paragraph{p}
Paragraph

That's not useful in the abouts too much haha ;D

FOR THE LAST TIME, HTML does NOT work in the forums! They disabled it! It makes '' disappear. (Because you won't see them, whats in the quotes are greater than and less than signs, which is what's used for html tags.)

That's why the greater than and less than signs don't show up. But yeah. It totally works in profiles.

Sorry, thaboss keeps misreading and getting all worked up.

@Jacen96: You are supposed to do < and > (if those characters are disabled, it's less than and greater than), but HTML is disabled in the forums and comments.

Thaboss doesnt want to be all annoying and stuff, but isn't stuff like {b} and {i} and {font} deprecated? Shouldn't people do something like {p style="color:(#, rgb, rgba, hsl, whatever); font-weight:700; font-style:italic; text-decoration:underline;"}blah{/p} instead of {u}{b}{I}{font color="red"}blah{/font}{/I}{/b}{/u}. And for size use the font-size:12px, and for type use font-family: (family here)Obviously the second one is much easier, and it works, but.. The first ones more proper. Right? It's technically inline CSS, but... Thaboss likes it better.

There are BB codes, which makes the second work better than the first. I actually prefer the second to the first, unlike you.
