Debro’s not here so I’ll just add this easy method :p…

  1. Copy the text of the log file to your clipboard, then paste into Notepad or some other basic text editor.

  2. Remove any names and serial numbers (especially from a Nero log) and re-copy to the clipboard and paste into the editing window here.

  3. Next, add the characters [ code ] (missing out the two spaces inside the brackets; we can’t show it exactly because the ‘tag’ will be interpreted here!) to the line immediately above, and [ /code ] (miss out spaces again) after the last line of the text.

  4. Preview the changes; the text should then display in a scrollable window.

For full reference of the Bulletin Board tags (although somewhat complicated), see here
