Forum shortcuts and Formatting Language

Writing a new post I stumbled upon the Shortcut “Ctrl+g”, which opens the image uploader.

So I did a quick research and found this list:

Maybe it is useful for some of you! :slight_smile:

Edit: BBCode [key] doesn’t work on the FP forum…

There is a list of shortcuts on the forum already. It’s on the menu by your avatar :smiley_cat:

@Chris_R OOPS, Sorry, didn’t notice that one… :blush: Good to know, though.

But: The one I stumbled upon doesn’t seem to be on there… :wink: Anyways, is there a list of BBCodes too?
Thanks for the fast answer, btw! :slight_smile:

There is no official list of BBCode or Markdown Syntax that works on this forum, however most of them do.
Just play around a bit :slight_smile: BBCode however seems to be as in CSS/HTML, with “< ></ >” instead of “[ ] [/]” . There are a couples that don’t work here, but work on the official forums of Discourse, for example “Spoilers”.

List of Markdown syntax:
These all seem to work as well:

Some examples from the last link:
3 x 108
Deleted Text

These seem to have problems with quoting though… Anyways I will try some when I need them.

The problem was just that I did not know the exact syntax of quoting, since quoting does not work in a mobile browser (and I wanted to use it on the go). Also I am not very familiar with the formatting languages out there… :frowning:

Hey you can even insert any name in a quote! :slight_smile:
