Hmmm...I thought I was smarter than this!

How do you put colored text in a GeekList description?

I've tried some html font tags and even copying and pasting from a forum comment box, but no luck yet.

It doesn't seem to work for me...I can see the "[COLOR]" tags, but when I use them in a GeekList description, they just come out "as-is"!

Send a message directly to yennen, his lists have color text, so he would know.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

It depends a lot where you are looking at your GeekList ninja

If you are using Creat New GeekList and look at your GeekList via Preview the colours and the cool emoticons will not show up, just the raw tags.

This, of course, makes you think that the tags have not worked. If, however, you submit the GeekList and then come back to it either via the main scrfeen or View Your GeekLists then the tags work as expected.

What this does mean is that if you make a mistake on the tags, you will not be able to see it until you view your GeekList normally. To fix it you would then need to go to View Your GeekLists and edit it via that screen.
