Special Codes To Format Text On Nairaland by Dioxidane: 1:35pm On Mar 18, 2015
This is for those who are not familiar with text editing codes on Nairaland or on any other forum. Sometimes we see guys that comment with red or blue text or comment with a different font. By the time you finish reading this post, you should be able to do same. Now let's begin.

The general one is to make a text Bold, Italicized, Underlined, or Struck-through.
Put b in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/b] => bold
Put i in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/i] => Italics
Put u in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/u] . => Underline
Put s in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/s] => Strike-Through

The next is changing the color of a text.
Put color=red in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/color]. => Red
Put color=blue in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/color]. => Blue
Put color=green in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/color].=> Green

Another code involves increasing the size of the text.
Put size=12 in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/size].=> Twelve
Another code involves changing the font of the text.
Put font=Courier New in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, and end with [/font]. => Dioxidane
Put font=Times New Roman in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, and end with [/font].=> Dioxidane
Put font=Lucida Console in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, and end with [/font]. => Dioxidane e.t.c

Now let's try out these codes in the comment section and see how they work.
P.S: Please add anyone I omitted...

1. Website page clickhere.type url=the web adress in an enclosed brackets then type what you want to appear (in my own case, click here) end with /url in an enclosed bracket.
2. Power e.g 26, type sup in an enclosed brackets, then the power (in my own case 6), end with /sup in an enclosed brackets.
3. Base e.g log53, same as above, but sub instead of sup.
4. Right, center, left words. Type e.g right in an enclosed brackets, end with /right in an enclosed brackets.
Examples
