Don't need a mod for that, it's just straight HTML. Use <b>bold text goes here</b> and <i>italic text goes here</i>. The tokens:

<b> turn on bold
</b> turn off bold
<i> turn on italic
</i> turn off italic

You can even change the font color using <font color=red>red text</font> if you don't use any quotes.

Have fun!

use <a href="<url goes here>"> to start the URL and </a> to end it.

ie: <a href="http://www.phpbb.com">phpBB</a>

I couldn't get that to work the last time I tried it. The quotes screwed up the display. Does it work now?

It would depend on the forum settings, wouldn't? A lot of them probably don't change the HTML settings, so use the BBCode... [url=http://www.urlhere.com] text [/url].

You can't use bbcode in the forum discriptions but you can use HTML, no matter if HTML is turned on or off ;)
