    Basically, the BBcode in my SmileBASIC introduction tutorial (see sig)(shameless self promotion) is completely fucked up, and sometimes when I make a change in x location, something weird happens somewhere else e.g.
    So yeah, I want to get rid of all the bbcode and start again
    Is there an easy way?

    Lol what? If you're formating the BBCODE correctly you should have no problem just selecting it and removing it.

    The easiest way would be to switch to the rich text editor, select all, and click the clear formatting button in the top right corner, but otherwise you should be able to delete all the relevant tags if you're using BBcode.

    the reason I was hesitant to do it manually is because the bbcode was starting to pile up like this
    [ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ][ size=3 ][ font=Arial ][ size=5 ]Blah blah blah[ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ][ \size ][ \font ][ \size ]
    and "SmileBASICs" is quite a long post so

    but I removed it manually eventually, and weird things are still happening. Like look in the last section, and there will be links to images which used to having [ img ][ \img ] around them. I did not remove the img myself, they just disappeared after I edited the answers spoiler in the Quiz (still last section) for some reason

    edit: fixed the pictures now
