What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML. Whether you can use BBCode is determined by the administrator. You can also disable it on a per post basis from the posting form. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML: tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ] rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and how something is displayed. For more information on BBCode see the guide which can be accessed from the posting page. ~ taken from the faq on this site.

So here is a simple guide to the most commonly used BB Codes available on this board and how to use them.

Code:
[b]this will bold text[/b]

If you would like to place an image in a post, use the IMG tags. To post an image, you need to host the image first. You can't just link to a picture on your computer. Use a site like imageshack.us or 250free.com or photobucket.com or other various online hosting sites.

Code:
[img]location of pic[/img]

Example:
Code:
[img]http://www.merqurycity.com/ssx_forum/1.gif[/img]
