Reduce the usage of BBCodes

Unread post by Phlembac Adib Hasan » Sat Sep 27, 2014 3:17 pm

As you might have noticed, we are facing a minor header problem regarding BBCodes$^*$. As a result, when these codes are used, different layers of the page overlap one another. And some ugly annoying texts are also placed on the top of the page. This is not a big issue. But it reduces the functionality of the page and some utilities like 'similar topics', 'upload attachment' can't be used for the overlapping.

To prevent this, try not to use BBCodes. Use equivalent latex commands instead. For example, to get the same effect as $$ or $$, use \textbf{} and \textit{} commands, resp. Example:

$\color{green}{\text{\textbf}}\text{{Bold}}\;\Longrightarrow\;\textbf{Bold}$
$\color{green}{\text{\textit}}\text{{Italic}}\;\Longrightarrow\;\textit{Italic}$
$\color{green}{\text{\color}}\text{{red}}\{\color{green}{\text{\text}}\text{{Red Text}}\}\;\Longrightarrow\;\color{red}{\text{Red Text}}$ $\color{green}{\text{\href}}\text{{http://www.example.com/}}\{\color{green ... {Hyperlink}}$


*BBCodes: The codes you use in different forums to format your message, i. e. $\text{, , , [quote], [url],
}$ etc.

And I forgot to mention, people who have BB Codes in their signatures should instantly take action. Most of the time this problem arises not from the content, but from the signature of some person.

Nice initiative- I was thinking of asking everyone having bbcode in their signature to change it if possible (a little scraping odd-job)

But you know, even a little time stings (especially now) :?
