We have some fun bulletin board codes, or BBcodes, that you may use here at Ennuily. BBcodes are a popular way to give forum members the ability to format posts using instructions in brackets. For example, there are standard BBcodes, such as the ability to turn a word bold using
[b]bold[/b]. Then there are custom codes we’ve created and that’s what this post will be showing.
The custom BBcodes we have are: tooltip, accordion, action, animal, and pop. Here’s how they look and how to use them:
Sometimes, you might need to point out something extra about a word. <-- hover over or tap "word."
Or, perhaps you want to provide steps on how to do something but in a fun way.
You might want to post a chat transcript.
Me: Why did the chicken cross the road?
Mary: It was hungry?
Here is a new take on the old * action * asterisks format seen in forums and chat rooms.

This next one was mainly added as an experiment, and you may not find a use for it. But, you can post a funky looking duck, squirrel, or monkey. Here’s the duck:
Similar to the first tooltip code, maybe you’d like to provide more context about a word or phrase but in a popup. We offer a single popup (pop) and a 5 step popup (pop5).

Here's how to add these BBcodes to your posts:
For "placement" you may type: top, bottom, left, or right.
[accordion header="Section 1"]This is hidden text.[/accordion]
[accordion header="Section 2"]This is hidden text.[/accordion]
You may add as many accordions as you need to. As you click on one, the previous one will close and the new one will open.
[chat-a="Why did the chicken cross the road?" who="Me"]
[chat-b="It was hungry?" who="Mary"]
[chat-a="No! Wrong!" who="Me"]
(repeat as many times as needed alternating chat-a and chat-b)
("space" BBcode at end of chat is optional - it adds some extra space)
[action]grabs a drink[/action]
Fun animals (pure CSS; not an image!):
The animals you may type in are: ducky, squirrel, monkey
[pop linktext="Click here for a popup!" header="POP" content="This is a beautiful popup, dude!"]
[pop5 linktext="Click here for the steps!" header1="Step 1" content1="Close your eyes." header2="Step 2" content2="Breathe in." header3="Step 3" content3="Breathe out." header4="Step 4" content4="Open your eyes." header5="Step 5" content5="Now you are present."]
