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.

Test cool and got it

Example: for BOLD. The letter “B” will be in brackets [ ] before word and after the word “/b” would be in brackets [ ]

Copy and past my entire post to your Topic Review and click “preview “. I hope that helps.

I was confused about this at first too, not gonna lie. I thought I would have to know how to code or something haha.
In the text of your review, before the words you want to change put the first part of the code. i.e. Something {b} like {/b} this, but using the correct brackets, and leaving no spaces between. The letters of course correspond to whether its bold[/i] or italics[/i}, you will then see the change when you are checking your draft if done correctly, not after using the codes themselves
