Your Blog is your space to update your friends on yourself. Use it to tell stories, update friends, give your thoughts... anything goes really. Your Blog supports OVCodes, so you can format them how you want them to look.
OVCodes are a cool way to format your Blog and About Me sections of your profile. They allow you to add photos, format text, add URL links, and more to these areas. If you have ever used BBCodes on forums, you will be right at home with them.
Each code is made of a pair of tags that initiate and end around the selected text space you want to format. For example, to bold a section of text, place the bold tags around the text like this: [b]bolded text[/b].
Below is a list of the available OVCodes:
[B]Bold[/B] - Displays text as bold. [I]Italicized[/I] - Displays text as italicized. [u]Underlined [/U] - Displays text as underlined. [H]Heading[/H] - Displays text larger and bolded for headings. [right]Right Justified[/right] - Justifies all text to the right. [left]Left Justified[/left] - Justifies all text to the left. [center]Center Justified[/center] - Centers the text. [url]http://www.url.com[/url] - Displays a URL link. [url=http://www.url.com]URL[/url] - Displays text linked to a URL. [color;#FF0000]Colored Text[/color] - Displays colored text from hexadecimal color values.
To insert images, you will need to know the photo ID from one of your uploaded photos on your profile. To get the ID, navigate to the picture you want to display and click the OVCode Image Tag link. Copy the image tag displayed.
