For those who know a little about syntax, disregard this. This is going to be as simple as it gets.

So I've been frequenting the lick section of this site recently and I've noticed, as I'm sure many of you have as well, that a lot of folks do not know how to use the most common syntax on this site. So I'll do my best to explain how to create proper

tabs,
bold words, italics, underline and

headings

.

First of all, syntax is what "computer/software/website" language/code is called. Syntax varies, so don't try to use this syntax anywhere, chances are it might not work. But this should give a pretty good idea of how all this works.

There are five tag lines you need to know.



They are:
tab - for creating tabs
b - for making characters bold
i - for italics
u - for underline
h - for heading


Each tag must be place inside brackets. For example, if the letter "o" was a tag line, you would place it inside brackets like so, [o].

Each tag line needs a open and a close to tell the website when to start the desired action and when to end the desired action. For example, if "o" was a tag line for making characters really big, you would type, [o]I WANT THESE LETTERS TO BE BIG[/o].

Note the forward slash, "/" before the "o" in the ending part of the tag line. The forward slash tells the website you want to end the tag line "o".

So, getting to the point, if you want to type a tab, here is how you would do it.

You would type "[" then the word "tab" then "]". After you are finished typing your tab, you would type "[" then "/" then the word "tab" and finally, "]".

Your end product should look like so,



e:----
B:----
G:----
D:----
A:----
E:----


The same thing applies with using the bold tag line (b). Bold characters will look like this.

Characters in italics will look like this.

Underlined characters will look like this.

Headings will look like this.




Once more, (and do not include the spaces!)
for tab type. [ tab ] your tab here [ / tab ].
for bold - [ b ] BOLD [ / b ]
for italics - [ i ] Italic [ / i ]
for underline - [ u ] Underline [ / u ]
for headings - [ h ]

Heading

[ / h ]

Hope this helps people out. If you still do not understand just let me know and I'll try to explain it better.


ROCK ON!






This should probably be made a sticky thread.

...Seems like you got the hang of it. Just type your tab where you typed: "can you explain...".
