Latest Review: Containment Breach by Wm. A. Yandell

Post by Wanda5452 » 21 Oct 2019, 03:19

Hi! I think I need someone who has figured out this code-thing to explain it to me in simple terms. I've read the instructions about 5 times and it still makes no sense to me. I have a few questions: Do I copy this code and paste it in my review document: Regular text. Text you want bold. Regular text. And if I do, how, where? Before or after my text? Instead of my text? Or do I insert the and before and after the text I want bold? The instructions doesnt' actually say how to apply it to my review document, it just says to use the code, but to me it looks like the code is the words "select all" which doesn't make sense either. I've tried a few things, and none work. I'd appreciate any help you can give.

You insert the

Code: Select all

[b] [/b]
tags around whatever you want to bold.

You did it correctly in your post with the word "and". You put:

Code: Select all

Or do I insert the [b] and [/b] before and after the text I want bold? 
So yes, that's exactly what you want to do.

So, say you wanted to do the rating. You would put something like:

Code: Select all

I rate this book [b]four out of four stars[/b].
I hope this helps and I haven't made it even more confusing.

Latest Review: Project Tau by Jude Austin

Ok so I'm trying to type the review on my phone. When I try to copy and paste my document, all of the italic and bold words in my review revert back to normal text. How do I fix this?
