UBB Codes are little pieces of text that allow you to add more than plain text to your messages just about anywhere on the Grail.
Usually, you can just use the 'Insert UBB Code' buttons. If you can't for some reason, you'll find a list of all UBB Codes below.
Please note that there are some that are not included in the edit box.

Linkwords
To link to a page that has a linkword ( look in the upper right hand site to see if it has), you simply type ->Linkword

Namespaces
For convenience, you can easily make links of the grail to certain other pages. The general style is XX->Yyyyy. (note that case doesn't matter in the XX part, it may in the Yy part)
Example:

  • php->unlink() - for making a link to the php manual's unlink entry.
  • c2->WelcomeVisitors - for making a link to the Portland Pattern Repository (the famous first wiki).



Complete list of namespaces:

  • PHP - php manual (http://www.php.net/)
  • MySQL - MySQL manual (http://mysql.com/)
  • Google - Google search engine (http://www.google.com)
  • C++ - the single unix specification containing much C++ info (http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007908799/index.html)
  • C# - for C# help (http://www.codehound.com/csharp)
  • Perl - for searching (www.perl.com)
  • C2 - for making a link to the Portland Pattern Repository (the famous first wiki)
  • RFC - for linking to a specific Request For Comment (via it's number)

UBB Codes:
(remove space after [ to make them work)

  • [##] where ## is the number of a page in the Asylum. You can see it after the title on every page around here. Makes a link (with description) to that page.
  • [ b] & [ /b] For making something bold
  • [ i] & [ /i] For making something italic
  • [ u] & [ /u] For underlining.
  • [ small] & [ /small] For making something small
