We will now teach you some Whaleoil Commenting-Fu

This post is for you to have a play in the comments section trying out how to make things bold, italic, indented for a quote, etc.   You can practise adding images, a video, etc.   As long as they do not upset today’s rules and are within the moderation guidelines, have a go.

Other commenters and the occasional mod will be here to help anyone that’s stuck.

In general, if you want to post an image or a video, try grabbing the URL from the address bar in your browser and copying it into the message.  That works for a lot of them and it keeps it easy.

Basic formatting is done with tags.   Opening tags and closing tags.  They look like this  

<b>  and  </b>

That one is for bold ON and then bold OFF.  Here is the same for Italics

<i>  and   </i>

If you want to show you are quoting someone else, you need these

<blockquote>   and   </blockquote>

Have a practise, play around, and help each other out.   We’ll try and pop in and assist where things grind to a halt.
