    [h3]Heading 3[/h3]


    [h4]Heading 4[/h4]

    [h6]Heading 6[/h6]

    Size 11
    [size=11]Size 11[/size]


    Colors
    You may use any color you like, all you need to know is the color's hex code. For example, the code of basic red color is #CC0000 and as a result our bbcode will be like this:
    Red
    [color=#CC0000]Red[/color]


    Spoilers
    This is a button-like feature, which can be used to make your posts shorter by making certain content hidden. To view this content, you simply click on the button and the content becomes visible.
    [spoiler=Title]Content[/spoiler]


    Video Embedding
    You can easily embed a YouTube or a Vimeo video here. This will allow viewers to remain on the FM Scout page, while still being able to view the video.

    [youtube=videoid]
    or
    [vimeo=videoid]
    The videoid can be found at the end of the video's URL. It is the part after "v=" in the URL. An example is underlined below:



    Links
    You can create links using page URLs by clicking the "Link" icon above the reply box, or by pressing Ctrl+L. You can re-name these links to whatever you want by entering the name you want to change it to in the highlighted field. Example:
    Home Page
    [url=http://www.fmscout.com]Home Page[/url]


    Images
    SIMPLE USE:
    [img]fullsizepic[/img]

    It's important to use the direct path to the picture, and not a link to the page it was uploaded.
    If the pic is wider than the container box, it will automatically scaled down to fit that box and linked to open full scale in lightbox mode when clicked.
    This will work well with a few pictures per page. However, popular topics with intensive use of pictures like that, will become quite heavy to load and will decrease user experience as a result. That is why we recommend the advanced use as outlined below.

    ADVANCED USE (recommended):
    [img=fullsizepic]thumbnailpic[/img]

    The best free image hosting site you can use is fmshots.com. I'll explain the path to automatic thumbnails that site generates.

    Add 'th' or 'md' before file extension (2 sizes).
    fullsizepic (original size)
    http://fmshots.com/images/gwJ.png
    thumbnailpic (medium size 320 pixels)
    http://fmshots.com/images/gwJ.th.png
    thumbnailpic (large size 650 pixels)
    http://fmshots.com/images/gwJ.md.png
