Did you know that you can underline text?

Asked by PhiNotPi (12663points) June 22nd, 2014

Well, you can now. Here’s how you do it:

+ text +
(remove spaces)

Underlining is not yet visible in the preview box, but becomes visible once you post the answer. I’ve decided to enable underlining because I felt that it was something basic.

Also, use underlining sparingly. In most cases, italics and boldface look nicer than underlining. Answers with too much formatting can be considered low-quality.

My malevolent side wanted to enable highlighting, but that would have been downright evil.

I do now.

Can you implement pagination?

We bow before your superior brain @PhiNotPi and we drink your MILKSHAKE!

Please, please don’t enable highlighting. That would be seriously overused, and drop the readability of the site.

@PhiNotPi: I haven’t said this yet, but you are a peach amongst jellies. Thank you so much for taking the time to fix up and improve Fluther.

I applaud your ingenuity but like @filmflam, worry about those who already use the textile markups as decoration or an art form, to the point of serious distraction.

I Don‘t think anyone will use these things to the point of distraction…besides, the thing doesn’t work!

I take it back. It doesn’t look like it’s working until you submit and then whammo

Pachy's avatar

Nice discovery, @PhiNotPi. Thanks.

Kardamom's avatar

Thanks for the underlining technique. I shall try to use it sparingly.

Brian1946's avatar

Apparently if you encase a link with + +, it still has one underline.

Strauss's avatar

Yep. It works!

chyna's avatar

Very nice! Good job.

Paradox25's avatar

I’m sure I’ll have an occasional use for this feature!

ucme's avatar


Oh yeah, fancy that!

dxs's avatar

Cool! Good for references, I guess.
This contains every text style.

Berserker's avatar

Of course now I have to try it.

Next: media embedding.

dxs's avatar

@PhiNotPi Is your desire to make that face the main reason you added the underline feature?

I was going to type less is more under my previous answer, but then @Symbeline quickly answered after me and my less is more comment would not have worked like I wanted it to. Nice penis, Sym.

@jonsblond Thanks. I’m glad you like my shlong.

CWOTUS's avatar

Not so cool after all. Yet.

ibstubro's avatar

But, I don’t know that I’ve seen anyone using it!

ibstubro's avatar

Aren’t links automatically underlined?

Strauss's avatar

Are we doing this again?

ibstubro's avatar

%Maybe% we just have to #experiment# to see !what! <works>?

Pillows, pillows? Those are not pillows. I tell you what, I would invite you but the pillows we use would not excite you.
