Text Editors at BGG

BGG has two basic text editors. You can recognize them from sight using the red boxed regions in the images below for reference.

Forum Editor - Used for editing posts and other parts of the system. The Forum Editor provides support for creating markup in the editor which is then rendered in the actual post.

Wiki Editor - Used to editing wiki pages and other places. For example the game Description and More Information sections are actually wiki pages.

The markup formats for the Forum Editor and the Wiki Editor are similar, but different.
