you should include buttons when writing posts/news submissions for those of us who don't care to memorize all the html out there-- it took me like 10 minutes to do a news submission using your requested formatting.. and it probably won't even get posted, because none of my news ever does, even when the band i submit news about is signed...
but just to make it easier..

All of the codes are here; they're all very straightforward. There are buttons for the most used ones like italics, bold, images, links, and videos.

that's all well that they have a list of it, but to just have clickable buttons to use instead of referring to that.. as being here almost 2 years now i've only seen that twice and don't know where to find it.

I get to it through the announcement at the top of the General Forum; there is a link in there.

Which buttons would you want to see added? There are a lot of tags and I think it would be pretty messy to have them all made into buttons.

Well, we have bold, italics, underline, image, link, video, quote, smilies, and color. I guess we're missing size and font, which is good because it's very annoying when people type in other fonts and colors. I don't see the need to centre things often, and if you need to, it's just [center]whatever text[/center]. The email isn't necessary since emails are automatically made into links, I don't know why you'd ever need the code one and I don't know what the -hr- one is. The button on the upper left switches from bbcodes to plain text. If you click post a reply instead of using quick reply (which it looks like you need to do on that other site) it has all of the options that site has and more. Except maybe that -hr- one.

This is what you should see:



Check your options (Tools > edit options) and scroll down to the bottom box to see what settings you have. If it's set on basic editor, that may be your problem. I have full WYSIWYG on, and I believe the standard editor should also have most of the options.

Hopefully that helps. If not, what browser are you using?
