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.

For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

In the area we post review the above boxes do not appear for bold or italic. When I use or the text does not become bold or italic. I am not sure where to put code of Select All either.


Those have not yet been added to the review submission form. You'll need to type them out manually when submitting your reviews.

As long as you type them out (and they are typed correctly, meaning no typos and you remember to close the code), it will italicize and bold in the finished review. :tiphat:

My issue is not how to bold or put in italics, I know how. bold and italic. My issue is that the form I was writing review on didn't provide that option. I was using a mobile device and I am still using it.

I am new and I have questions about the bold and italic.
Do I actually type the before the part I want bolded? And do I actually type to end the bold before the regular text? Will I see the bolded text in my review before I submit it?
