  1. Text/Picture Guide

    Welcome to the KaW Color, Font, and Pictures Guide. This guide will tell you all the BBCodes for your typing needs. Please note that PC Users have a BBCode Bar on their forums so this guide is mostly for iDevice users. Enjoy!

    PS: If I state "code box" somewhere I mean the box where you put the BBCode. EX: [ size=100 ]

    Purpose and Definition

    BBCodes, short for Bulletin Board Codes, are little codes that you put before your sentence or text to alter it. You can make words Big or Small. You can make words Colored, Italicized, Underlined, or Bold. It's amazing what you can do with BBCodes!


    Color and Font Codes

    7 Main BBCodes

    There is a total of 7 BBCodes available for use on KaW but Hundreds of Variations of them. The following Image contains the 7 main BBCodes.


    Simply typing whatever you want inside the code box will give you a cool looking post.

    Don't forget the Quotation Marks around the person's name when quoting!

    BBCode Variations

    There are lots of variations for most of the BBCodes. I'll tell you the codes in each section for each code.


    You can change the size in a code very easily, simply change the number in your code box to any number between 1 and 200. 100 is the default size.
    Size one looks like this While size 200 looks like this.


    You can change the Color in a code by changing the color name in the code box. EX [ Color=Red ] Changed To 
    [ Color=Green ].


    You can change the way a list looks by simply putting [ List=1 ], [ List=a ] or [ List=i ] instead of [ List ].

    [ List ] Looks Like:

    • Bullet List
    • Looks Good
    • Awesome!

    [ List=1 ] Looks Like:

    1. Numbered List
    2. Looks Good

    1. Download the app PhotoBucket
    2. Set up a PhotoBucket Account
    3. Click on Upload Image on PhotoBucket and choose the image you'd like to post
    4. Upload the image
    5. Go to my albums and click on the image

    8. Paste it onto the forums
    9. Viola! You have a beautiful picture of whatever you're posting a picture of.



    PhotoBucket can do a lot of things for you. I'll do my best explaining how to do some stuff.

    Finding New Pictures

    To find new pictures, simply go to the find new pictures tab. Then type in the idea of what you want (Swords, Dillybar, etc) and browse through the results. If you find one you like, click on it and in the bottom left corner should be a box with an arrow going through it. Click on it and hit copy to my album.  After that you are free to use the picture :) .

    Changing Start Up Screen

    To change your start up screen just go to settings and click on Start Screen and change it to whatever you like. Enjoy.



    I have collected some info on emojis and have found the codes for each emoji. The picture coming up will explain the codes. Whatever number comes before the code means that the code matches up with the emoji with the same number below.


    *Note: #21 has a stovepipe in it, not an I or an L.
