I don't understand how it works, Is there a step by step?

I have never done a blog before so am not familiar with a blogs features.

Thanks,

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! I figured out by reading a few old posts.

And the BB Code help pages.

Now I do have a question ... in my blog I attempted to make my title huge and centered

I entered



It centers it but does not change the size of the font. Also it removes the color from the first line.
Why does it not display the instructions I have typed in here??? and why did it center my last line?
Can you help me????Thumb of 2012-07-21/CDsSister/6acd9a

Marilyn, I checked out your blog entry and it looks like you figured it out. I see lots of color and nice fonts.

Thanks, Still working on it. I did a lot of trial and error and Sharon offered help too.

It would be nice if we could change the size of the Fonts in order to offer emphasis to title -- Could I put that on the wish list?

You can indeed change the font sizes. I changed the font size of your most recent blog entry to demonstrate.

All the supported BB code tags are shown here:

http://garden.org/special/pages/bbcode.php

Use the size tag. 1 is tiny and 20 is huge and you can use anything in between.

Thanks

Dave can there be a link of some kind in the Blog area for your above posted link, and a link in the same area for a Blog tutorial?
Or maybe the tutorial could have the link for coding?
