How to use codes in the Forum

This forum has a number of BBcode functions that can be put to use. All are accessable through the group of buttons above the message box.
This interface works in two steps: you select the text (indicated below like this)you want to enhance and click the correct button. The correct formating is applied for you. Its basically the same as applying formatting on a word processor.
Some functions need an extra value, for example links. These are indicated below like this. Examples are also provided when you point to the buttons with your mouse.
