How to Make to Text Bold or Italic in Reviews

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

I wrote the code text in bold but it doesn´t happen anything, the text is the same, does it have to stay in this way or do I have to do something else so the code works?

The code worked here. If you're not sure how to get it to work, just practice in this thread until you're comfortable with it. :tiphat:

Peter was kind, and so was Ada . A kind gesture that was reciprocated by them both.
I get it now. Thanks for the tip.

Can you please explain it to me? It seems that there are a lot of people having the same problem.

The first post explains it, and the thread itself is for practicing it. The reason you see a lot of posts saying "I don't get it" is because those members typically haven't actually tried to do it, or haven't posted any of their attempts, so they fail to see what they're doing that makes it not work.

A good idea is to quote a successful post and look at how the code appears before submitting.
You can also look up other explanations for how to use BBCode. You can find them online, and they may help those members who can't get it from this thread. :tiphat:

The BBCode shortcuts haven't been added to the reviewing process yet, so you need to manually type them in. :tiphat:
