I was playing around with the look of my NGA Blog and tried using the BBCode for trying out different fonts, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas? No big deal, was just curious.

Example:
[font=Tahoma]Hello world[/font]

This actually displays exactly as shown (i.e. with the start and end of the font BBCode in brackets) vs just showing "Hello world" in the Tahoma font.

We don't have a [font] tag here.

Wasn't sure how BBCodes work. So it looks like special programming has to be done on the site to enable each one, and the ones listed at your link are the ones that work on NGA and others, like font, that are listed on general google searches related to BBCodes won't. Ok thanks for the reply Smiling

That's correct. I wrote my own bbcode parser for garden.org and only implemented the tags that I wanted to have available on the site. So many tags that you might see "out there" won't work here.
