Aviators Worldwide Community Text Formatting Guide


1) Quote

Selecting a part of the text in a post will show a “Quote” pop-up. When replying to a post, pressing the icon will quote the whole post you are replying to


2) Bold

In order to make bold text, you only need to type the text between asterisks or <strong> and </strong>.

Example 1

**Bold Text**
Bold text

Example 2

<strong>Bold Text</strong>
Bold Text


3) Italics

To make your text in italics, simply type it between asterisks or underscores

Example 1

*Italics Text*
Italics Text

Example 2
_Italics Text_
Italics Text


4) Hyperlink

The box is pretty straight forward, however if you wish to type it manually, the formula is [text](link). This will result in a clickable blue text that will redirect you to that specific link

Example

[Oh, nice video!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ)
Oh, nice video!


5) Blockquote

Although this isn’t used very often, a blockquote can be typed in 2 ways

Example 1

[quote]Blockquote[/quote]

Example 2

> Blockquote

Blockquote


6) Preformatted Text

This feature allows you to see every character typed

Example 1

(4 spaces) Bold Text (Preformatted View)

**Bold Text (Preformatted View)**

Example 2

`*Italics Text (Preformatted View)*`

*Italics text (Preformatted view)*


7) Upload Image

You can post images either saved from your device (be aware that they must be in one of the following extensions: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, heic, heif) or from the web

Example 1: From your device
Simply click on the “Choose file” button and, well, choose the file

Example 2: From the web

Simply paste the link of the image in the box


8) Bulleted List

This feature allows you to create a list. You can use *, + or -

Example 1

* Alpha
* Bravo
  • Alpha
  • Bravo

Example 2

+ Charlie
+ Delta
  • Charlie
  • Delta

Example 3

- Echo
- Foxtrot
  • Echo
  • Foxtrot

9) Numbered List

It is similar to the Bulleted List, except that it uses umbers instead.

Example

1) Golf
2) Hotel
3) India
  1. Golf
  2. Hotel
  3. India

10) Toggle Direction

I (@PlanesAndGames) personally don’t know what this is supposed to do nor understand it well, maybe somehow help Arabic writing (for other Discourse forums of course, GAC uses English!), but this is just a theory of mine!


11) Emoji

This is a really useful feature for Desktop/Laptop users. Click on the icon and a huge list will appear. You can try to search for an emoji by using the search bar. Or, you can manually type the emojis by typing its name between :s.

Example

:gac:
:gac:


12) Insert Date/Time

This can be really useful for events, as it shows date and time in an easy way. It will display your timezone as default no matter who typed. Make sure to have the correct timezone set in your profile! Pressing or passing the cursor over it will display your timezone and a few other ones.

Example

[date=2020-10-08 time=08:40:00 timezone="Zulu"]
2020-10-08T08:40:00Z


13) Includes
a) Hide details

This is the “drop arrow text” feature I’m using right now. Can be really useful to make posts less crowded. To see the hidden text, simply click on the arrow.

Example

[details="Click me!"]
Hi! Hope you're liking this tutorial so far!
[/details]
Click me!

Hi! Hope you’re enjoying this tutorial so far!


b) Blur Spoiler

This is another feature that allows you to hide text, but instead this one blurs the text. To see the hidden text, simply click on it. Here is how you blur the text:

Example

[spoiler](Insert text here)[/spoiler]

(Insert text here)


c) Build Poll

The table is pretty easy to understand, however if you wish, here you can see an amazing tutorial on how to manually make polls, although they don’t mention you can make pie polls!

Note: You can replace the --- by :--, :-: or --:
