Most text fields on Newschoolers allow you to format your post using BB Code. Every BB Code tag must have an opening and closing tag. These tags surround the text you want to format. Newschoolers supports BB Code tags for Formatting, Links, Images, Videos, Quotes and Embeds.

Nesting Tags

BB Codes can be nested, meaning tags can surround other tags. However tags must be balanced for your post to display correctly. Tags should be closed in the opposite order they were opened. This example is correct, notice the order in which the tags are closed is the reverse order in which they were opened.
