I recall there was a page with the tags we can use in the forums but I cannot find it now.
Can I post an image in a topics post?

Hi omhoge,

Oo, oo, I know the answer to this one.

When you hit the reply button, there's a link just below the form called "Message Formatting Options" that leads to the page in question.

It doesn't actually mention the image tag, but I recall Jason mentioning it once. The format is

{img}[i]url of graphic[/i]{/img}

except with square brackets instead of curly ones.

ah-HA! thank you so much.
I really was starting think I'd imagined it or saw it at some other site.
yeah no image thing, will try that,
but now at least I can be unusually [b]bold[/b].

(It's in the Learn category.)

Much appreciated.

So I wonder, when are the tags replaced with HTML when it's saved to DB or rendered by the web app? Maybe this is proprietary regex poo he's got going here.
