Here is another list:[ul][li]Item one[/li][li]Second item[/li][li]Last item[/li][/ul]
Use ol for numbered lists and ul for bulleted lists. The processor inserts line breaks automatically after each list item, so leave them out for nicer formatting.

Using an @ will ping the user. The @ symbol can be omitted if you don't want to ping the user you are quoting. You can also leave out the source completely.
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

Welcome to the sCode reference!

Code block

[code]<style type='text/css'>
#content { 
background-color: #eee; }
This will not ping any forum groups within the block.
<style type='text/css'>
#content { 
background-color: #eee; }

Inline Code

Normal text.. [tt]Hello world![/tt] .. Normal text.
This can also be used if you simply want to write something in monospace real quick!

4. Miscellaneous Back to Top

Description and CodePreview


[box=#eeffee]Lorem ipsum[/box]
A general-purpose box you can use to divide your text into visually distinct sections. You may customize the background color.
Lorem ipsum

To ping a user, use the @ symbol before their username like this: @Keith
If their username has special characters/punctuation that breaks the normal ping, you can still ping them by putting the ping in square brackets: [@Keith]


Emoji conversion is automatic, and all standard emoji are supported. Check out The Emoji Cheatsheet (external link) for a list of emoji you can use! To type one, use the code that has the keyword in between colons, and it'll get automatically converted when your post is displayed. The way the emoji will be rendered depends on your device.

Using with HTML

Some sections of the site allow you to write with both HTML and sCode. Most notably, you can use both HTML and sCode on your user profile and your pet profiles. Because of how they interact, there are a couple quirks to be aware of:

  1. Line breaks won't show up. To insert a line break, you will need to use the br tag (either HTML or sCode). This is because line breaks are not interpreted in HTML.
  2. CSS cannot contain square brackets. This is due to the way sCode is interpreted (by looking for square brackets).

There are a few other CSS/JS quirks specific to pet and user profiles, especially on user profiles as it uses a different layout from the rest of the site.
