We have two separate ways of formatting text, and I regularly type '''bold''' where it should be bold, and the other way round.

I can't find a way of using the apostrophe to simulate [b]Bold[/b]. Perhaps if you did it in your post we could see how it works - 'cos it doesn't work in your original post (at least not for me)

'''bold''' seems to be syntax from wiki

So it would only work on a Wiki page? (I can see the tags described in /wiki/page/Wiki_Formatting, but not in /wiki/page/Forum_Formatting). Does Forum formatting work in Wiki pages? If not, then the "problem" is that we have two markup languages. But then we knew that.

The BGG wiki follows fairly common wiki conventions, and the BGG forum follows fairly common forum conventions.

there is no BUG


Forums and Geekmail use Forum Formatting

wiki entries use Wiki Formatting .. see Link Submissions
descriptions and more information on database entries also use Wiki Formatting
