How to make a forum post or reply:

This forum uses a coding process known as BBCode, which is a lightweight markup language commonly used in message boards and forums. This language is known as tagging. They appear in brackets like so: [tag]Message text[/tag]

Making general posts is as easy as clicking ‘new topic’ and ‘submit’, but for more complex formatting, follow the instructions below.

All these options will generate tags around specific bodies of text.

  • Highlight the text you wish to make bold, italicized, or underlined and click on the table of options accordingly in the message body options panel.
  • To quote text, highlight the portion of text you want to quote, and then select the quotation mark in the message body options panel.
  • To make a list of text, highlight the portion of text to make into a list, then select the 3 bullet points in the message body options panel.
  • To make a bullet point within a list of text, select the single bullet point, before the item you want to list, in the message body options panel. It will show as a bracketed asterisk.
  • To make a link, select the globe with the chain link in the message body options panel and the website link between the placed tags.
  • To link a section of text within your message to a website, click the link option in the panel, and place the website link after the url tag like so (but without spaces):[ url= ] Click here to visit the American Rose Society website [ /url ]. The section within the brackets will appear as a re-directed link.
  • To post an image from a link, select the picture icon in the message options panel, and place the image link between the tags. You may also upload images from your own drive and attach it to the post.
  • To post a YouTube video, click the YouTube icon in the message options panels and place the embed code from the video between the tags.
  • To post a map, click the map icon on the message options panel and paste the embed code between the tags.
  • Thanks and happy posting!
