My query remains! Kindly check out my recent review then you will be able to get my issue. I have no issue in understanding or using the codes. My problem is that the coding remains even after the publication of my reviews. I do use the latest provided form for review writing.

I see what you're talking about.

Did you preview before submitting the review? If you did, did they work prior to submitting it? Did your editor score card mark you down for it?

The codes show because you put them wrong and entered too many of them.

You did that:

Code: Select all

 [b][/i]"The Dark Web Murders"[/b][/i] by [i]Brian O' Hare[/i][/b] is a murder mystery. It is written for the specific audience with a reading taste for the murder suspense genre. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book since the beginning to the end. I have been a fond reader of murder suspense and a Sidney Sheldon's diehard fan so it has been a perfect pick for me to read. The novel contains all the elements to spark thrill and suspense right from the beginning.[/b][/i] 
.

It should be:

Code: Select all

[/i]The Dark Web Murders[/i] by Brian O' Hare
, and the [/b][/i] at the end of your paragraph are extra and shouldn't be there.
In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)

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
Bolding and italicizing in this uses basic HTML. Let's say you want to italicize a book title. You would put right in front of the title a [ i ] without the spaces in between and at the end put a [ / i ] without any spaces. It's the same for bold, just with a b instead of an i. You can also just highlight what you want and click the B or I at the top and it automatically does it for you.
