CodeKicker.BBCode.BBCodeParsingException: The tag color does not exists.

That error occurs because your BBCode contained a [color] tag and you did not define such a tag. This is not a crash: It is a deliberate error to help you with your problem ;-)

Either...

a) remove the tag
b) define the tag
c) switch to ErrorMode.ErrorFree which will just ignore the tag

I want to add that you will rarely find any API which never throws an exception. But an exception is not a crash by itself. It is just a different channel for transporting a return value. And that return value might simply indicate an error caused by the caller, not the function itself.

A crash is a NullReferenceException for example.

Sorry to append a semi-unrelated and Fixed issue, but it had #1 Google Placement, so an answer here would help future searchers.

How do we implement a custom tag whose attribute is specified thus:

[color=red] Standard BBCode
[size=6] Standard BBCode
[font=courier new,monospace] Popular, but not really standard.. and yes I do realise there's a space in there :p
