This tutorial explains the various SMF BB Codes that you can use

Bulletin Board Codes or BBCodes are a way to format posts in SMF, and also in many other forum software.

The general format of a BBCode has three parts, an opening tag, the inside content and a closing tag, as shown below:

[open] text inside [/close]
bold text
Bold text
Code: [Select]
You can place one BBCode inside another, as long as the child tag is closed before the parent tag. For example, the correct way to make bold and italic text is:

[b][i]bold & italic text[/i][/b]

Code: [Select]
Bold & italic text
This is shown more easily when the tags are indented:

        bold & italic text

Basic BB Codes
Please use tags in this manner: [tag]Item goes here[/tag] or [tag1=blah][tag2]Item goes here[/tag2][/tag1]

Some of the common tags are listed below.
