  • You can't change the color of a link. e.g. [url=X][colour=X]Text[/colour][/url]
  • As mentioned above [url=URL][img]Image URL[/img][/url] wont work, you must use [imgurl=URL]Image URL[/imgurl]
  • Torn uses its own custom sizing when using size BB code. The minimum is '1' and the maximum is '7'

Color Chart

Put any one of these colors into the ([color=ColorHere]Text[/color]) BB Code tags to change the colour of your writing. You may also use HTML Color Codes instead of the color. Example: [color=#42445E]Text[/color], this would display "Text". You can generally find the codes for colors in program's color pickers (like photoshop).
