Italics and bold and such

    @braenz

    Can someone please tell me how to get bold and italics in posts in our forum (www.monarch.org.nz/forum). The footnote says:

    Allowed markup: a blockquote code em strong ul ol li.

    Put code in between backticks.

    But I don’t understand… I know where the backtick is , and I have tried to get underlining by puttingul` before and after the text I wanted underlined. Is that correct? Because it doesn’t work!

    I used the backtick key (to the left of the 1) in my post above – interesting effect.

    This page might explain a few things for you: http://www.econjobrumors.com/topic.php?id=3608

    Backticks should be used to insert code in your posts that you actually want displayed for readers.

    Thanks Batrachoid. That has been very helpful.

    “Backticks should be used to insert code in your posts that you actually want displayed for readers.”

    That’s what I was trying to get my head around. Thanks so much for your help. A bit complicated, though, I think to use a lot. And why is my post above in italics AND indented?

    You can enter basic HTML in these posts, like type

    <strong>bold text</strong>

    and you will see bold text; like that.

    Alternatively you can download the bbcode plugins and bbcode buttons plugin from _ck_ (that’s what I did), which makes it easier and visual.

    Can other tags be added somewhere so they are available to users? I like using strike and underline. What and where would I edit to add these?

    Thank you for your help.
