    For double posting your best bet is to report your own post using the ! in a triangle icon and ask a mod to delete it.

    For the in-line text commands, then if you are using the full editor switch out of "what you see is what you get" mode (top left button) so that the formatting commands are displayed as you select them from the control panel (note, I am assuming the full editor here, I don't know the mobile version).

    Once you can see the actual text of the commands, then find a post you like and hit the "Quote" button to see the commands that went into that post.

    Between the title line and the text entry box is a wall of text formatting options. If you click on one, it will put the 'command text' into the text box.

    In addition to Lord Torath' suggestion, here is an actual list of BB commands that you can use on the board:

    For double threads you need to ask for mod intervention, but for double posts you can delete them yourself.

    Also, at the bottom of every forum page is a box labeled "Posting Permissions". One of the things inside is "[https://forums.giantitp.com/misc.php?do=bbcode]BB code[/url] is On", with a link to a list of all the things you can do with BB code on the board. It is the same link that Ciciograna posted.

    That's a very useful clarification from Rockphed. Mods can also do very helpful things like (as in this case) merge the two (near) identical threads when they both get replies. We have a very helpful bunch of mods on this forum.
