How to Make to Text Bold or Italic in Reviews

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Is this code the same for a Mac? When I type Title of the book it doesn't italicize anything. What exactly am I doing wrong?

@Tradbowdiva

Your first post worked perfectly.
The second one didn't work because you reversed the 'i' and the '/' in the ending code.

It is the same no matter the device you use. :tiphat:

Ok..so it's not going to show up as bold or in italics on the review page? I assume since it worked on here, it will show up when I preview my review before submitting?

It has to be typed in manually when submitting a review. The shortcuts haven't been added yet.
However, as long as it's typed in correctly, it will work.
And you're welcome. :)

I am struggling to make words bold and Italic in my first ever review. Please clarify whether the 'bold' and 'italics' are visible in the review.
