Gangster Nation Guide

Your profile content can be formatted in various ways using 'BB Code'. The same code can be used if editing The Times. This page gives you a quick reference to each type of code which can be used.

Bold text

[b]Your text here[/b]

Results in bold text.

Underlined text

[u]Your text here[/u]

Results in underlined text.

Strikethrough text

[s]Your text here[/s]

Results in strikethrough text.

Text size

[size=24]Your text here[/size]

Results in bigger text.

You can use any number instead of 24. The size is in pixels.

Coloured text

[color=red]Your text here[/color]

Results in red text.

You can use any supported colour name or a "hex value" (format like so: #FFFFFF) in place of "red".

The following external website can help with picking a colour code: https://color.hailpixel.com

Centered text

[center]Your content here[/center]

The content will be centered within your profile or post.


You can add images using the button on the screen. This will insert a code which must be kept in place (but can be moved around), looking similar to the following: [imgupload]abcdef-123456-abcdef[/imgupload]

YouTube videos


You can place any YouTube video URL within the [youtube] tags to have that video display.
