Basic Commenting-Fu

This post is for you to have a play in the comments section trying out how to make things


italic or

indented for a quote.

You can practise adding images or a video.  Just make sure all images and videos are within the Whaleoil rules.

Experienced Commenting-Fu readers please feel free to help others learn and to offer advice in the comments.

In general, if you want to post an image or a video, try copying the URL from the address bar in your browser and pasting it into your comment.  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 it is the same for Italics

<i>  and   </i>

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

<blockquote>   and   </blockquote>

 Practise, play around and help each other out.
