    Default bbcode name for colors for forums

    bbcode name for colors for forums (Still working on it)


    *** Note if stated to use the code for a color, that code must be used. Use of the color name will not work***

    For those that do not know what this is, it is a chart of colors you can use for colors, and text. Direction, and additional information is at the end of the chart.

    OK this is the only bbcode color chart that I know of. Sorry about the uneven layout, I have tried to make it even, and will work more on it later.

    1. You can change the color of the text in your post by highlighting it (Place you pointer in front of the text you wish to change, click there, and then draw your mouse over the text.
    [*******lightblue,2,300]Sample of highlighted text.[/color]

    Then go to the text color change button, click that, and then click the color you wish to change you text into. If you wish to change it to a color not there, then click any color, as you will rename it.

    (another forum)

    You should get something that looks like the above.
    This will give you this
    [*******pink]Sample of highlighted text.[/color]
    So lets change it to "RoyalBlue"
    Code:
    [*******RoyalBlue]Sample of highlighted text.[/color]
    And we should get
    [*******RoyalBlue]Sample of highlighted text.[/color]

    You can, and must in some cases, change the color by using the RGB color code (Called Hex code, for Hexadecimal a geek way of saying you are counting in sixteens.)

    Lets change the color to Dark Slate Gray, as the color name does not seem to work, we will need to use that "Hexadecimal" Color code aka Hex color code thing. We look at the chart, and find the HEX code is #2F4F4F for that color.
    Code:
    [*******#2F4F4F]Sample of highlighted text.[/color]
    [*******#2F4F4F]Sample of highlighted text.[/color]


    Looks a little lighter to me. Anyway, you should have the idea now, you can play with it yourself. If you wish to do the math, you will find you have 16,777,251 variations to play with. I Suggest you use the preview button to test your work.

    Hex numbers are as follows 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F

    A=10, B=11,C=12,D=13,E=14, and F=15
    Hex color chart (No it does not have 16,777,251 colors on it. It only has the basic colors (not the basic , basic, but geek basic), the rest are called shades. Also a hex chart, not that you care but here it is.

    Mods edit posts if they're not in black/Arial/Verdana anyway.
    Hope you had fun typing this. Or copy/pasting, whatever.

    lol

    I just love the --- productive worth of some. Attack those that do, so you can hide behind nothingness. Interesting rule.

    I did it for my Forums. Just had to make a few changes, and that took me all of -- maybe 3 mins. Maybe.

    It matters Not!

    Sorry, I was not thinking of your comment. I have seen colored text more then a few times, and saw nothing about it.

    I thank you for the info.

    It does come in handy showing things.
