Those buttons are used to prevent what we call Live Links-Clickable links.

It is called coding your links ....

Just curious - why would one not want to create a live link?

Now I'll post and see what happens.

I still can't figure out why I can't get colored ink anymore, though.

There are some circumstances when you wouldn't want a live or clickable link, and coding it using either the code tag# or html tags<> prevents the link from being clickable.

I can't figure out why either. I like using colored ink, I can find my post easier and read from there. It keeps me having to go through so many posts to find where I left off. AND I just like colored ink. Anyone in administration know why we can't get it anymore???

I don't know but if colored fonts have been disabled I'm glad.

Many times a poster will choose a font and/ or color because they like the look or for their own convenience with the unintended consiquence of making reading the post more difficult on the viewer.

Out of courtesy for people reading my posts I leave colors at default and use sans serif (usually default) fonts.


Incidentally, I believe vBullitin uses UUB Code. UUB closely resembles HTML but there are slight differences.
