I'm trying to make a game thread but when I use size tags at the start of the post for the title, all the text seems to be sized up even though the [/size] tag is at the end of the title, where it should be.

code of the post here:
Code: Select all
[size=150][center][color=#0000FF][u][b]Newbie 2061: Views of Tallinn[/b][/u][/size]


oh hey look a city from estonia. y'know, that one country in the baltic states

All the text is sized up, even when it shouldn't be. Link to the thread if necessary: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=86289

BBCode gets weird when you close tags in the wrong order. Try swapping the center and size opening tags and see if that resolves the issue.

(I've also noticed the size tag not seeming to work properly on mobile devices.)

I’m guessing it’s because your tags are overlapping each other. you have a center and a color tag that start after the size but don’t end before the size tag closes. I believe in bbcode, you should try to have any tags that start within other tags also end within those tags so the code can be treated as if it’s hierarchical. I’m not sure that’s a very good explanation but anyway.. Try moving your size tag after the center and color tag.
