Default new here an confused

i get very confused by new sites. some things i take literally and some like iím just too slow to ever understand and as a result i donít understand things like terminology. like i never heard of BBcode before and already getting overwhelmed i canít find info on it anywhere. the BBcode seems an essential part of using a trigger warning code so iím doubly confused. i just realized that i have not introduced myself but since i believe what i have to say is likely triggering i am afraid to post. i also feel like iím posting this concern in the wrong place. am i? hoping to find out what to do.

Hi @extirpatealone. Welcome to Psych Central. Sorry you are confused by some terminology. Actually I have been here 5 years and BBcode was a new one for me until I saw the explanation on wikipedia
BBCode or Bulletin Board Code is a lightweight markup language used to format posts in many message boards. The available tags are usually indicated by square brackets surrounding a keyword, and they are parsed by the message board system before being translated into a markup language that web browsers understandóusually HTML or XHTML.Wikipedia
Since I do not see anything triggering in your post you need not worry. If you need to use it in the future it is this
[TRIG-GER]material that you think might be triggering[/TRIG-GER]
I inserted hyphen so you could see the code. Remove the hyphen when using and you would see this
Possible trigger:

Hope you get the support you are looking for.
@CANDC (the @ sign in front of someone's name gives them a mention reminder alert so if you include mine in your message I would see you replied.

Actually there are people here that never use any BBcode and they get the support they need, so feel free to post in plain English if that suits you.

Hi extirpatealone,

Take your time, no rush. Once you learn how to make a trigger warning - and it's not very complicated as you'll see - you'll be away in no time,

Welcome to PC.
