In this post you'll learn the following:
  • How do I set text bold, put it in italics or underline passages?
  • How can I centre text?
  • Can I change the font size and colour? How does that work?
  • How can I post a link without showing the link address but replacing it with a text?
  • I would like to include a picture in a post. How can I do that?
  • How can I mark a text as quote?
The screenshot below shows a message field on Magical Hogwarts. As you can see some of the buttons on top of the white field are marked in pink and have got a number. In the white field you can see the code in use while in the second screenshot you can see a preview of how the message would look once it is posted. Please note that the second picture is a screenshot as well and that, therefore, the link is not clickable.

When inserting a quote you can also use the "quote" button on top of each post or, when you are already on the "post message"  page you can see all previously posted messages on the bottom and there, too, you can get the possibilty to "insert [a] quote".
