    Thumbs up Q : So you want to know how to add Style to text.

    These vb Codes are not included in the original vBulletin board. They are available here because Steve has added them.
    I'm going to list as many as i know, hopefull others will add ones they know..

    I will add this, While these look very good Please DO NOT over use them....

    Code:
    [ glow]Glowing text[/glow]
    Note: remove the space after the first [
    Example:
    [glow] Glowing text [/glow]
    Code:
    [ shadow]Shadowed text[/shadow]
    Example:
    [shadow] Shadowed text[/shadow]
    Code:
    [ fliph]Horizontally flipped[/fliph]
    Example:
    [fliph]Horizontally flipped[/fliph]
    Code:
    [ flipv]Vertically flipped[/flipv]
    Example:
    [flipv]Vertically flipped[/flipv]
    Code:
    [ blur]blurred text[/blur]
    Example:
    [blur]blurred text[/blur]
    Code:
    [ center] Center text[/center]
    Example:
    Center Text
    Code:
    [ move]Moving text[/move]
    Example:
    [move]Moving text[/move]
    Code:
    [ updwn]This Text Goes Up From Down[/updwn]
    Example:
    [updwn]This Text Goes Up From Down[/updwn]

    Big Smile Added complications

    Also note that you can nest codes so you could
    "center align glowing text"
    Code:
    [ center][ glow]Why not[/glow][/center]
    Example:
    [glow]Why not[/glow]

    Or even
    "Move a shadowed text"
    Code:
    [ move][ shadow] Funky Stuff[/shadow][/move]
    Example:
    [move][shadow] Funky Stuff[/shadow][/move]

    JohnR,
    Would i be correct in saying that the vb codes will only work/and be visible with Windows IE? Because i believe you cannot view \write vb code with any version of the Netscape software.

    Unfortunately most of these are specific to IE browsers. There are no functional equivalents for Netscape.

    The good news is that the [center] tag works in NS! :D

    Steve,
    Thank's for the info. I use IE 6.0 along with Netscape com 4.7 and Netscape nav 6.2 . I was just trying to save anyone who uses Netscape a headache and a lesson in frustration.:hammer: I remember trying to use Netscape in the past for code and it was a no go.

    I notice the text is.......

    I noticed the text is much larger in IE ergo easier to read.MY question is,
    why the moving text ( horizontal, and down to up) Works, and the glowing text etc doesn't?

    I am using the IE 5.0...Macintosh edition....OopS! maybe the Mac users are being punished twice....I shoulda stayed where I was.........hj

    Harry,
    Isn't there a more recent version of IE for mac? Or are you running OS X? From what i gather that is really buggy? In short if you a running x there is IE 5.1 for that os.

    Couyld be to do with the "marquee" tag that ie supports which is used to move text, while there is no equilivent for glowing text...

    Code: [ pong]This text moves back and forth.[/pong]

    Example: [pong]This text moves back and forth.[/pong]
