Rich text controls available on the Chatboard
We recently upgraded the iCarol Chatboard area so that it allows for Rich Text formatting on your entries.
What does this mean?Previously the Chatboard offered Plain Text formatting only, which meant that all the text was going to be of a default font, default size, and no special formatting like italicized, bold, or colorized text could be supported. As the name implies, it was kept very plain.
Rich text exposes more controls and gives you the option to do more with your entry.
Rich text supports a number of functions including:
- Making text Bold
- Making text Italicized
- Changing font type, size, and color
- Numbered or Bulleted lists
- Inserting hyperlinks
These new tools support more customization and creativity in your forum’s format as well as making the entries more visually pleasing. You can also add more organization and clarity to your forums.
We hope you’ll enjoy using these new functions and that it will enhance the communication between you, your volunteers, staff, board members, and others who use your Chatboard to stay connected!
