I looked in the admin center for info but couldn't find anything.

As for the colors, there's a list of colors that you can choose from. I don't think there are additional colors. For the fonts, I have no idea, sorry. I think the only person who might be able to answer this question is Jochen, our tech admin.

I tried a cool font and it worked... I guess we can use all fonts we can use in Words you know... I don't know about the color, though.

EDIT: Okay, I tried to put "color=Fuchsia" and it worked.. So I think we can use all colors/fonts we like. (I'm not sure if we really can use ALL, but you know what I mean... )

The first one is Fuchsia, but you can use any color you like (I tried them all...)
And all the fonts I can use when I use "Word", I can use here... Do you know what I mean?

As nerd as I am and I know how to HTML my web pages, I can help you with making custom color codes.

So this is how it works. As you may know, computer understands the color mix as RGB (red, green, blue). Computer mixes the colors like they get mixed in light, so red + green = yellow, green + blue = cyan and blue + red = magenta.

The web browsers understand the color mix with a 6-digit code, such as this:

#ffffff (RGB, two digits for each color)

You can give each colour a value for the mix. The scale of values is from 0-9 and from a-f. 0 is the lowest, 9 and a are in the middle, and f is the highest. In this case, all the values are highest so this is the result:

#ffffff
Which is pure white. Which means that #000000 is pure black.

Of course, you can make all of your own colours, like

#ffaaee
or #a9affd

Yeah yeah, I'm a one nerd.
I prefer using color palette though... You can really never see beforehand what exactly those color mixes become.  It's a bit random.

Web page editors or PhotoShop can show the web color codes though. You can just click on their color palette and pick the code.

I've never found a way to use any font except the Verdana default.  Maybe Lorienel knows how to get others.

Please don't post in colors that are not easily readable.  Some colors don't show up well as print and that makes it very difficult for the people who are trying to read the comment.

OK, I can help...

All you have to do for showing different fonts is replacing the default font name (in this case Verdana) in BB Code with some else font name. I used asterisque (*) just to make code visible here, so leave them out. Like this:

[*font=Times New Roman] Font Preview [*/font]

[*font=Rage Italic] Font Preview [*/font]

[*font=Palace Script MT] Font Preview [*/font]

[*font=Script MT Bold] Font Preview [*/font]

[*font=Fixedsys] Font Preview [*/font]

[*font=Comic Sans MS] Font Preview [*/font]

[*font=Wide Latin] Font Preview [*/font]

All fonts can't be seen everywhere. It depends if the font exists in the local computer. Fonts can be downloaded though, and some of them may come to the computer with different programs.

Ohhh, thanks, Lorienel.  I've often wondered if it was possible to use different fonts in this forum.

(That was Comic Sans MS, the font that's my default for emails.)

You're welcome.

I forgot to show how to insert custom color code. All you have to do here as well is replacing:

[*color=red*] Color my text [*/color*]
[*color=#6d0eff*] Color my text [*/color*]
