BBCode

Post by Ast A. Moore » Tue Nov 21, 2017 10:07 am

I’d like to see more text formatting options: [o][/o], [sub][/sub], and [sup][/sup], for instance. (The former will be particularly useful for discussing hardware to denote signals that are active low.)

YouTube video and Twitter tweet embedding would also be brilliant.

Yep, the YouTube option is sometimes very useful in a forum.

We can add custom BBCodes for you. For a start I have added sub

You can also use sup as well.

Finally you can use s for strike-through.

I would join request for Youtube and Spoiler tag.

It's much bigger chance that someone clicks""play" on embedded youtube video seeing some frame of it than he clicks some plain link. People are very lazy and impatiant nowadays ;)

Also, Youtube should work now:



Note you need to use the following format:

https://youtu.be/gwBsbz4TRD0

Then surround it in the [youtube] and [/youtube]

Please make sure that any Youtube content you publish is appropriate.

Sweet! Now I can drink some H2O and calculate 82 while I’m at it.

Eagerly looking forward to your enabling [o]overline[/o]. The CSS property for it is text-decoration: overline, but I’m sure you know that.
