Line Breaks in board descriptions
« on: May 13, 2006, 08:31:00 am »
I've just set up a new forum - I've created a 'welcome' category with a single board underneath.

I've put the welcome message in the 'board description' box which is fine, but it would be nice to be able to break this block of text into paragraphs. Is this possible? Is it just a case of inserting some sort of carriage return code?

Thanks in advance.

Try inserting
Code: [Select]
<br>where you want it to break.  That should work.

Thanks for the tip, unfortunately it didn't work! I've tried inserted lots of different codes in the description box but none of them work. Very odd.

Thanks guys - it does work! I didn't realise that you put the code in once for each line break, ie. twice to start a new paragraph.
