time to confess ignorance again… need a short course in tags…like…what are they?!
i know, it’s embarrassing.
but hey… do you know how all the little tricks once used to enable a rear wheel drive vehicle to conquer snow and ice?
i thought so.
it’s a generational thing.
oh yeah, trackbacks. that’s another mystery for this forum member! :embarrese
[/quote]Tags are simply instructions, in the form of brackets ([ and ]), that tell the BB software how to format your text . . . like bolding (which would be a B enclosed in the brackets), italics, underline, quote, etc.
Typically, the format is a beginning tag with the instruction enclosed in the brackets that tells the software to BEGIN the formatting, and then a closing tag at the end where you want the software to END the formatting. However, the ending tag has a forward slash (/) before the instruction to tell the software that it is indeed an ending tag.
I wouldn’t worry about a “trackack”.
