glow BB Code


Staff member
[NOBB][glow="color"] [/glow][/NOBB]

The glow tag uses the option, you must include the name of a color (or hex code) to use this.

Example 1.
[NOBB][glow="green"]Green glowing text.[/glow][/NOBB] =
[glow="green"]Green glowing text.[/glow]

Example 2.
[NOBB][glow="#0000FF"]Blue glowing bold red text. :eek:[/glow][/NOBB] =
[glow="#0000ff"]Blue glowing bold red text. :eek:[/glow]

The basic colors are available via words; red, green, blue, yellow, etc...
If you can't find the color you want in English you can use the hex color code preceded by the # sign, ex. #FFFFFF is white.
