Re: bb code

Thanks Chris. I had already looked at that but I couldn’t work out which was for pictures. I’ll do a trial with it later. Your instruction on your website was very helpful.

Re: bb code

Thank you David, I've exhumed the following from the old rmoof website!

Putting pictures and web links on the ROOF forum


You can insert pictures in postings on the ROOF forum provided the image is already published somewhere on the internet. You need to insert the following text

{img}url of your picture{/img} but use square brackets!

where “url of your picture” is the full internet address of your picture. Please make sure your picture is no more than 640 pixels wide.

Web links

You can insert a web link using the following text

{url}{/url} but use square brackets!

where “” is the full internet address of your link.

Make sure you type in the square brackets, img or url and forward slash exactly as shown above. Good luck!
