    The button is there in advanced reply - looks like #

    Quick reply boxes don't have it.

    The button is the # icon which you will find in 'Go Advanced' window, as described in the how to, second row, third from end. ;)

    Just a thougth, since I had to search to find this post,,,,, place it in a sticky so it doesn't get buried. I think it's usefull information for both linux newbies as well as forum newbies in gerneral.

    Unfortunately, if we stickied every post with useful information, you still couldn't find it amongst the rest.

    Yea, I know that having everything important in a sticky can lead to many pages of sticky posts.......

    My vote is still for sticking the # code icon as an option in the 'Quick Reply' window as well as the 'Go Advanced'. Would make life a lot easier (and quicker) and code tags much easier for newcomers.

    The only way it can be done, is with a vBulletin addon, that turns the quick reply edit box into the full advanced edit box, which most of the people that are complaining about the missing option don't seem to want.

    I agree, what an unfortunate lack of flexibility!

    Anyway, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who finds the post useful.

    I'm still willing to create a Wiki page and move this guide there, with the page title being "BBCodeTags" as Elfy originally suggested. Of course the page will be incomplete in the beginning (due to only 'Code' tags guide being there), but if people found it useful, I'm sure it'll quickly get completed.

    But I consider creating/maintaining wiki pages a responsible job, so I'll do it only if others find it worthy and useful too. So let me know if you think it'll be better/more useful in form of a wiki page. Otherwise perhaps bookmarking the post is the best option for those who find it useful.
