Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Overall a great guide //ee.failforums.me/img/smilies/big_smile There's just a few things I would improve:

  • <> can be called brackets if they are being used in that way, so I would say 'bbcode uses square brackets instead of angle brackets' instead (or at least call [] square brackets).

  • I would put the nested tags section in with bbcode rules, and have examples of how to use =, because then all the syntax is in one place.

  • I wouldn't say trigger blocks work exactly the same as spoilers, even if you explain the difference later, because this has led a lot of people to be confused about when to use each, maybe say similar to instead of exactly like.

  • Maybe include the actual options for how you do an alphabetical / numeric list.

  • Should probably explain how to get the topic / post / forum ids for the forum link tags.

aren't angle brackets the characters 〈〉 (2329, 232A)?

(This was almost a year and a half ago, but in programming angle brackets refer to < and >)

Nah I went to look up how to do BBcode headers and saw that this was never stickied.

Stickied topics are great to be kept closed, so the spam goes below them.

Updated the guide to include the world tag added 4 months ago. It's in the Embeds category.

Re: Post Formatting Guide

Added the new right aligned text tag to Basic Formatting, as well as the centered text tag, which I don't know why I didn't add before.
