Text glow effect for the forum

How to get this glow effect on this forum?
If you use it, it doesn't show glow as intended?

<span style="font-weight: bold">
<span  style="display: inline-block; padding: 0 0.5em; color: #ffffff; text-shadow: 0 0 1.0em red, 0 0 1.0em red, 0 0 1.2em red;">
Text glow effect
</span>
</span>

This forum uses BBCode (as far as I know). I don't think you can use HTML here?

Is there a way to translate this HTML in BBCode?

You can google it, but I doubt it.

BBCode has [] instead of <> . I've replaced above code with [] but didn't see the effect.

That's only syntax. It doesn't guarantee that you can use the same functions. For example HTML uses
PHP Code: (Select All)
<a href="www.link.com">Link</a
Where BBCode would use
PHP Code: (Select All)
[url=www.link.com]Link[/url

So basically they are two entirely different things. You can't just replace the brackets.

BBCode is made to be userfriendly compared to HTML. It also lacks many features, perhaps intentionally, to prevent misuse of forums. Too many style effects can cause issues for some users.

Depending on how much is necessary, just make an image with the effect within it, then use the image tags to call it. The smileys that are used on the forums are just images.

Could you make an example with img tag and above glow code?
You mean that I make externally image and tag it here?

Hey, great. But there has to be a way to achieve this via html code.
