Wysiwyg editor

You can use the wysiwyg editor to easily format your messages! You will find in this page all the documentation about BBcode and associated icons in the wysiwyg editor.

Please note you can drag and drop your attachments (images, txt, zip …) directly in the wysiwyg area.

However, if you want to go back to the old interface and format your message yourself, you can do it using this icon

One last point : if you want to maximize the editor (both wysiwyg or BBcode), you can click on this icon
