How do I Format Text (links, bold, bulleted lists, etc.)?

PRLeap uses BBcode for formatting the text in press releases. Use the format bar that appears when editing your press release to apply formatting to your text. Use the buttons to bold headers, add bulleted lists, and create links.

Tags will be added to the selected text and you will see the results in the Preview section of the Press Release Builder.

How to bold text

The selected text is now formatted with the proper tags as shown below.

How to Add Bulleted Lists

Present bulleted lists whenever possible. Limit the size of a list to no more than seven items. Break up larger lists into two lists if possible. Or, consider only presenting a portion of the list and including a linking to the full list on your website. This is a good tactic for driving traffic back to your website.

1) Highlight one item at a time and click the Bulleted List button to add an indented list.

Repeat the process until all the items have been formatted with the proper tags.
