Enabling Colored Text


I wish I could use some colors here too… :paintbrush:

Forum: catching badly formatted code posts

Discourse does not support color out of the box. We could use a plugin to add text colors, but I’d advise against it.

The text we show should be short and obvious. I think @hamoid’s example was a good start, but we can probably shorten it a bit. As we come up with guidelines we can also link to those.


It’d be as easy as enabling this BBCode: http://www.BBCode.org/examples/?id=6


Like I said, we could enable it using a plugin. But I don’t think we should.


What would the color be for? Manual syntax highlighting?


Mostly yes! Usually I underline class/interface names and bold functions. :face_with_monocle:
It’d be much nicer if I could just choose a color for them. :star_struck:
