    adding to message system

    I have a nice little message system running and now I want to add stuff to it such as we have here with the colors/fonts/attachments and everything else.

    Problem is I don't know how which is not really a problem I can figure it out but I need to know
    1. What language is used? php, javascript or jQuery?
    2. what do I google to find examples of what I want? what I have been using is not bringing up related things

    Contact the people who wrote it. As you mention no name of your product there is absolutely no way we can help you.

    I wrote it in PHP. Its a simple code that inserts the message into MySql and then pulls it back out. Nothing fancy and I want to make it a bit more fancy

    I'm not. I want to know what is used to add the different fonts, colors, and what not.

    I know its not PHP but I am not sure what it is or how to google it

    Depends on how fancy you want it to be.
    Basic things like bbcode can be done with PHP. That's a requirement of adding [b]this is bold text[/b] to your messages. If you want something more flawless, than you want to look for a wysiwyg editor. These will be javascript based regardless of how its implemented (or I guess it could be flash or whatever else), but you need to handle it in a way that you understand in the PHP code. I don't suggest the use of direct HTML obviously for the that is a way to structurally damage the output script by simply giving it structural tags. Generic wysiwyg editors I would presume are configurable to let you be given bbcode style output.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)
