PT, why won't you let me voice my excitement?

Dear PT,
I am approaching my second 10% weight loss goal. and I'm so excited!!! Unfortunately, I can't type numbers in CAPS, and I can't bold my font or use bigger font... so I can't "voice" my excitement very well. Now, size 72 font would get boring, but what about the basic bold, italics, and underline options? At least for teams/groups? I love PT!!! (but I'm excited and I can't say what I want to say, with 'feeling')... :)

OP here..

Thank you all! I can't get it to work in my community posts though?

Also, what's the code for italics/multiple (say bold & underline?)
Thank you all so much!

I'm also not sure why it bolded my entire post? <\b>

let's try again...

To stop the bold you have to do the < sign and then the / and then the b and the final close >
It is hard to write how to do this in a post because the it does it. :)
I will use * instead of the open and close < >

*b* to bold
*i* italics
*u* underline

to close put a / in front of the letter and use the same format */b*, etc. To use more than one tag, just put them in line *b**u**i* then close all three at the end....

It is SILLY! :)

Perhaps PT could put this in their help section to show people how to do this? :)

Oh and the reason it is so silly is that we can't edit our posts!!!

Please PT bring on the EDITING feature!!

I'll try to show you.

For font size, put font size= 4 (or whatever size you want) inside the brakets with /font after the phrase (also in the brakets). But this is not comparable to Word size. Below I'll do a 4 as an example.


Commands for font style and colour are basically the same . Use font face= new times roman (or any font) between the brackets or font color= #ff0000. You can also combine these inside one set of brackets and you only need /font to turn it all off.

I'll try to do an example now, but if all else fails go to the link below and look at the HTML tag sections and color chart, etc.

Good luck!
