How to Make to Text Bold or Italic in Reviews

Post by Scott » 07 Jan 2018, 14:54

The Review Team Guidelines require putting book titles in italic print and putting the rating in bold print.

-----

To make text bold, you have to use the following code:

Code: Select all

Regular text. [b]Text you want bold.[/b] Regular text.
The above will display as follows:
Regular text. Text you want bold. Regular text.

-----

Similarly, to make text italic, you use the following code:

Code: Select all

Regular text. [i]Text you want italic.[/i] Regular text.
The above will display as follows:
Regular text. Text you want italic. Regular text.
----

If you are having trouble making text display as bold or italic, please reply to this topic explaining your problem and include following example sentence: "Regular text. Bold text. Regular text." Try to make the words "bold text" bold. This way I can see exactly what you are doing and why it is not working for you.

I'm really getting confused over how to bolden or make my text italic. Do I press any of the buttons above. That is, the 'B' or 'I' buttons?

Hi, I've tried reading and re-reading it several times and I still don't get it. What code are u talking about and how do I input it? Sorry if the answer is obvious. I'm just not getting it

Okay, I think I get it now. Sth like this will appear right? Meaning that the text will not show that it's bold but rather will just display the code. Am I right?
