This is just a simple resource to help people easily learn how to quickly use the various basic textual features in their posts. A more detailed guide to this and the other aspects of using the board as a whole may be found at http://www.puritanboard.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=5552, although some of it no longer applies to the board's format. To quote someone's post, simply click on the green "QUOTE" box at the top-right of the post. What it will then do is automatically put the necessary words and symbols around the text you want to quote, which you can manually do as well if you want to quote more than one thing in a single post of yours. For instance, if you want to quote the phrase "This phrase is quoted," you would simply type: You can then go on typing un-quoted text below the quotation like this, and whenever you want to quote more text further down in the post, just make a new line and put that same notation around it. It is the same way with italics, bold, underlining, color and website linking: This sentence would be italicized. This sentence would be bold. This sentence would be underlined. This sentence would be green This sentence would be a link to Google when people click on it. Any other features follow the same pattern, as you can see above your text-box on the page at which you're creating your post. Feel free to respond to this thread several times in a row just to test the features out and get a feel for how they work. NOTE: The only reason my examples above displayed the text instead of taking on the applicable features is because I checked the "Turn BBCode off?" box before posting.
