Simple Forum Formatting

This is a simple guide to formatting text in forum posts and comments. For more complex formatting, see Forum Formatting.


While forums have an editing toolbar, there is not yet such a toolbar for the new comments system (we plan to add such a toolbar, but it is not ready yet). Still, you can manually insert formatting for simple (or not so simple) formatting needs.

This is not intended to be a comprehensive guide to formatting, just enough to get most of what you need for comments. For more complex formatting, see Forum Formatting

Text formatting

[b]text to bold[/b]
[i]text to italicize[/i]
[u]text to underline[/u]
Quote box
[q]The quoted text[/q]
[o]spoiler text[/o]

Embedding links and images

link to game, expansion, etc, such as Catan
where 13 is the id of the item you want to link.
if you want the text of the link to be something other than the name of the item, put the alternate text between the tags:
[thing=13]Some other link text[/thing]
Links to other pages, such as Karl-Heinz Schmiel
You can link most pages on BGG in this way, with the type and the ID
External links, such as
just the bare url will be linked, if you just type
For more complex links, or links with alternate text, you can use [url=]Google[/url]
Embed an image from boardgamgeek
[imageid=100 small]
where "100" is the imageid, and size options include micro, small, medium, large, square, and original
