Sorry I didn't answer you sooner but based off of that screen shot, there was nothing wrong to begin with.  The only two buttons available when you're viewing a forum is New Topic and New Poll.  You can't Post a Reply until you've clicked on the particular thread you wish to reply to.

*facepalm* I said the new topic button wasn't working...not reply button! I'm not that stupid. As you can see at the bottom of sc, there's some broken html code beside the button and it wasn't working until today.

BB Codes Guide (for HC)


1) Bolding letters:
To bold letters write [b]text you want bolded[/b]. For example, with bb codes taking effect in the previous sentence, it would look like: To bold letters write text you want bolded


2) Italics:
Same as bolded but instead of b you have an i. [i]text you want in italics[/i]. For example, with bb codes taking effect in the previous sentence, it would look like: text you want in italics


3) Underline a text:
Same as bolded but instead of b you have an u. [u]text you want underlined[/u]. For example, with bb codes taking effect in the previous sentence, it would look like: text you want underlined


4) Changing color of the text:
To change the color of the text, you have to use one of the following HC BB Codes:

[red]
[green]
[blue]

It's pretty obvious in which colors they change the text. To return to the normal color, close the color change with a [/font] tag.

Examples (after the arrow is the example with BB codes taking effect)

[red]This text is red[/font] This text is red
[green]This text is green[/font] This text is green
[blue]This text is blue[/font] This text is blue


5) Font strikethrough:
Same as bolded but instead of b you have a del tag. [del]text you want struckthrough[/del]. For example, with bb codes taking effect in the previous sentence, it would look like: text you want struckthrough


6) Changing font:
To change the font of the text, you have to use one of the following HC BB Codes:

[comic]
[courier]
[georgia]

To return to the normal font, close the font change with a [/font] tag.

Examples (after the arrow is the example with BB codes taking effect)

[comic]This text is in the comic font[/font] This text is in the comic font
[courier]This text is in the courier font[/font] This text is in the courier font
[georgia]This text is in the georgia font[/font] This text is in the georgia font

Of all of the above fonts, perhaps the most important is the courier one, because it has a fixed-width.
What does this mean? That each character in the font has the same width. In other fonts (including the default one), letters like "I" have a smaller width than letters like "M".

Here are two examples, one with courier and the other with the default font. See why for yourself why the courier is better in this case:

The courier one:
Archer        - Marksman      - Crossbowman
Cavalier      - Paladin       - Champion
Rakshasa Rani - Rakshasa Raja - Rakshasa Kshatra


The default one:
Archer        - Marksman      - Crossbowman
Cavalier      - Paladin       - Champion
Rakshasa Rani - Rakshasa Raja - Rakshasa Kshatra


7) Insert Image:
To insert an image into your post write [img]link of image[/img]. Note that the image has to be uploaded somewhere and use the link provided, not copy-paste the image's path from your computer

Example:
[img]http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll221/Asheera_Moonblood/proud.gif[/img]

with BB codes enabled, it would look like:



As you can see, that smiley picture is uploaded on Photobucket (you can copy-paste its address in your browser's address bar and see that it points to the proud smiley)

Also see this guide on how to upload your pictures.


8) Insert URL:
To insert a link into your post write [url]link[/url] OR [url=LINK]text you want to be click-able[/url].

Note that in the second case, the text you want click-able can't have an apostrophe (') or the link won't work at all!

Examples with the proud smiley link:
[url]http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll221/Asheera_Moonblood/proud.gif[/url]

[url=http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll221/Asheera_Moonblood/proud.gif]Proud Smiley[/url]

with BB codes enabled, it would look like:

http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll221/Asheera_Moonblood/proud.gif

Proud Smiley

Also see this guide on how to upload your files.


9) Insert link to a Video in flash format (.swf)
To insert a video into your post write [swf width=WIDTH_OF_VIDEO height=HEIGH_OF_VIDEO]link of video[/swf]. Note that the video has to be uploaded somewhere and use the link provided, not copy-paste the video's path from your computer

Note: from Youtube, you need to use the "embed" link and not the "watch" link!

Example:
[swf width=425 height=344]http://www.youtube.com/v/4EV9UJ0mv2U&hl=en&fs=1[/swf]

with BB codes enabled, it would look like:



As you can see, that video is uploaded on Youtube (you can copy-paste its address in your browser's address bar and see that it points to the video)

Also see this guide on how to upload your videos.


10) Quote a text:
To quote a piece of text use something like this: [quote]Quoted Text[/quote]. For example, with bb codes taking effect in the previous sentence, it would look like:
Quote:
Quoted Text



11) Draw a horizontal bar:
This is a nice trick that looks better than writing something like "___________________"

Write [/quote] to apply the bar.

It will draw a horizontal bar all the way to the end of the line regardless of the resolution of the one that sees it.

Example:
(that's the bar)


12) Disable smileys:
To disable smileys write [/smileys] anywhere in your post.
Note that it will disable smileys in the entire post, no matter where you wrote the BB code, and that you CANNOT activate smileys later in that post.


13) How to ignore the bb codes in a text.
This is a special trick. As you can see, in this guide I used it alot to show you how to write with BB codes without these to take effect.

The trick is to write [b][/b] before the code (this means after the opening bracket, and after the slash as well (when "closing" a code))

Example:
For an "opening" BB Code: Open the bracket ('[') then write [b][/b] and then courier and close the bracket (']').
For a "closing" BB Code: Open the bracket ('[') then a slash ('/'), then write [b][/b] and then font and close the bracket (']').


Hope you find this guide useful

What record?

Also, I'm sure nobody knew about 13 and possibly 9, hmm? (except Alc from whom I learned about 13)

I know, some are for "noobs" which almost everybody knows, but some are also advanced "tricks" (for example, I doubt many know 13, 9 and 11)

You must be joking? The horizontal Bar is one of the easiest to know and so is the flash. Anyway, was this just an attempt to get a QP? I mean, if you want to know how to use the BBCode then just look to the left when writing a post. It is all there.

No need to sound like a smart@ss, and no, it is NOT everything on the left. If you look closely you can't find the swf one, and neither the [/quote] one (with the bar trick)

Besides, I've seen A LOT of people that don't know the bar trick and write something like "_________" or whatever.

Not to mention that I've never seen ANYBODY who used [courier] when needed to make it look "nice" and aligned.

And I guess only 1% of people know about 13...

Hehe, I'm not being a smartarse, but I just don't think the trouble was needed to make that post when most of it is pretty obvious IMO. It also looks like it was made just for a QP. Just my opinion btw.

I almost forgot: you can't have an apostrophe (') in a link's name!

I see people all the time doing invalid links because of this

FOOL - F*** Off Or Leave - used to make people FOOL, even thoug very few knows the meaning and just thinks it's a regular insult in SHOUTING!

LOOF - Looks Orange Or Fishy - totaly useless, used for either fruits or strange things, fishy, therefore fishy fruits (drugs??).

Thougt every one should know those two, cuz' no one actually does.

EDIT: Oh, and sumthin_fishy has one post, like four years ago.
