I have my review all done but can't make it italics or bold.
Regular Text Italics Text Regular Text
Regular Text Bold Text Regular Text

What am I doing wrong? Nothing works. I can't send the review with these errors.

The first post explains it and this thread is here specifically for you to practice in. You can also try googling how to use BBCode. :tiphat:

I remember by thinking bracket, i, bracket and bracket, stop, i, bracket for italics. That is [ i ] without spaces in front of the book name and [ / i ] at the end.

How do you add a quote to the text? I've seen this done on a few different reviews I've read by others but can't figure out how to do it myself. Thanks in advance!

You can either add it using normal quotation marks, or by using the BBCode for quotation.
The BBCode works like all the BBCode, just use quote instead of i, b, etc.

Looks like you've got the hang of it. :tiphat:

If you mean how to quote the entire comment as above, just use the quote icon in the upper right corner of the post. Hope this helps.
