    If i let´s say copy and paste something from Wikipedia and post it here, it will keep the Wiki font and include hotlinks just like it is on Wiki.
    That is great in a way with the hotlinks but usually the font just looks way off as well as the size.

    Is there any setting i could tick to get rid of this so that everytime i c/p something into the post window it converts it into the standard font/size that is used here?

    Example,
    To this but automated,

    Nope as its working as designed.

    Quick work around.
    - copy/paste your text
    - highlight all the text (drag left mouse button or control +a) and click the eraser icon (left top in the text editor)
    - all text markup is now reset :thumbsup:

    Or use Google Chrome and try to copy something and paste without mark-up.

    It's what the "m" stands for in html.

    It handles hyperlinks, image links, font properties (bold/italic/underline etc) paragraph alignment, quotes...

    Pretty much anything that comes within square brackets [ ] and is ended by slashed square brackets [/ ] and defines properties on an asset rather than being rendered as text.

    To bold text, you can either put [b ] around [/ b] it like this (which displays it as around), or click the bold button (which does exactly the same thing). The [ ] properties "mark-up" the text, but don't get displayed themselves

    BulletinBoard Codes? Damn, if so, this is the first time since I've heard about for about 10 years ago I actually get what the BB stands for. Me, slow? Naaah.
