A Guide to Coding a Dispatch

Introduction

The following has been written as a visual guide on how to use tags when writing dispatches. The code is shown first (on the left if in a table) with the result shown below (on right side if in a table). The code is active and a direct format for the result shown. Different combinations of code can also be used, so I encourage you to experiment with them! If there is any tag missing, please contact me and the guide will be modified accordingly. Enjoy!

Note: Not all tags work in Regional Message Board Posts or Telegrams (See Tag Functionality).
