Custom BBcode that is available on this forum:

Anchors:
[ anchor={anchor name} ] [ /anchor ]: Define an anchor for a link inside a post (large posts)
The text between the tags will be converted to an anchor with {anchor name} to be used with [ jumpto= ]
[ jumpto={anchor name} ] [ /jumpto ]: Provide a link to an elsewhere defined anchor

Example:

Code: Select all

[jumpto=explanation]Click here for a detailed explanation[/jumpto]

...
[anchor=explanation]Detailed explanation[/anchor]
Hidden text:
[ hide ] Text to hide [ /hide ]
Hides the text (can include formatting, embedded code, even images!) in a collapsed box that can be opened by pressing a button... and closed again with the same button. Now new and improved with cleaner styling!

Example:

Align/format text:

[ right ] Text to align [ /right ]
Aligns the text left, center or right, respectively. Note that this will cause paragraph spacing between the lines.

Did you know that moral outrage triggers the pleasure centers of the brain? It's unlikely you can actually get addicted to outrage, but there is plausible evidence that you can become strongly predisposed to it.

I've added OffTopic tags, to help keep things from derailing in topic threads. Good practice is if you want to respond to an off-topic remark in a way that could lead to further discussion, then please consider making a new thread.

If you have a "by-the-way remark", please enclose it in [ offtopic ] and [ /offtopic ] tags (you can do this easily in the editor by selecting the text and then clicking the "offtopic" button control in the bar above your editing area)

Code: Select all

[offtopic]This is off-topic for this thread![/offtopic]
Result:
Off-topic:
This is off-topic for this thread!
