Can you make the underline (e.g. <u></u>, [u][/u], underline) bbcode display some underlined text instead of displaying italicised text?

How ‘bout a full range (16 million, #000000 - #ffffff) of color options instead of merely nine?

Make the moderator color something less popular but still very distinctive, authoratative, and classy leather brown (#7e620d), thus freeing the popular and festive blues?

Hi JITP,

I’ll forward your suggestions to the technical staff. We’ll see what they say.

How strange! I had noticed the underline code wasn’t working as well. I thought at first it was my browser, but I tried it in I.E., Firefox, and Chrome to no avail.

It’s not particularly important, just a pet peeve as to why it suddenly changed from underline to italics. I liked to underline links I place in my text so they are easily distinguished, as they would be in an online article.

Let us know if you figure out the quirk. Would be interesting to find out how it happened.

Excellent!

A full expression of colorsThat is more emotional, and more human.  grin

And thank you. 

Now what about that moderator blue?  Do we still need to avoid that one?  Or would you prefer to use a moderator brown?

Isn’t it great? I had no idea so many colors were available for use online. I only knew how to punch in RGB colors in Word and PowerPoint. Even then, I only punched in the “coordinates” for the color palette that corporate has pre-approved.

We get six specific shades to choose from, all of which complement the color of the company logo.  LOL

Now at least I understand the ‘PC’ in your nick.

I go one step further: you can use part of the colour space of ‘X-Windows’! (For some reason not all colours…)

Like:

Bisque
maroon
DarkSalmon
navy
olivedrab

These colours are probably all valid: wikipedia.

Now the forum becomes really fun…
