From the board's FAQs:


What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML.
Whether you can use BBCode is determined by the administrator. You can
also disable it on a per post basis from the posting form. BBCode itself
is similar in style to HTML: tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ]
rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and
how something is displayed. For more information on BBCode see the guide
which can be accessed from the posting page.




Can I use HTML?


That depends on whether the administrator allows you to; they
have complete control over it. If you are allowed to use it, you will
probably find only certain tags work. This is a safety feature to
prevent people from abusing the board by using tags which may destroy
the layout or cause other problems. If HTML is enabled you can disable
it on a per post basis from the posting form.

So, which one are we using, here?

HTML: indent

BBCode: indent

Edit: We're using both? All righty, then.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party.


EDIT: OK, use "quote" rather than "blockquote" to indent something.

Instead of using Quick Reply, click on the "Postreply" button at the top. You'll get more formatting options, including the strikeout option.

Aha! I never even noticed the Post Reply button. Thanks!

The Post Reply button is also at the lower left of the reply box.
