You need to do something like this.

Code:

Using php:

[img]https://lain.alphabox.com/images/tremere(small).jpg[/img]




OR this

Code:

Using html:

<img src="https://lain.alphabox.com/images/tremere(small).jpg">



The forums also support most common html tags, such as:

Code:

b,i,u,pre,ol,li,ul,a,img,strike


If anyone needs something weird let an admin know and we'll likely add it.

It really isn't that hard, but you may need to caculate proportions by hand.
If you don't you can end up with something like this.
Also, remember the images size to load in the browser is still the same, if bandwidth matters.

Code:

<img src="https://lain.alphabox.com/images/tremere(small).jpg"  width="500" height="85">

also, for manual resizing, if you just use the "width" tag, and leave the "height" tag out completely, it constrains the proportions automatically.

It may as well. If we ever get more users, or if the new users we get start posting, it may be handy to have around.

on the topic of resizing images, you can use width=55% height=55% instead of proportions too..

HERE'S WHAT TO DO WITH SPOILERS:

(Since we don't have spoiler tags)

The most thorough thing to do seems to be this:

Code:
[u][size=9][color=indigo]*************[/color][/size][/u]


This is what you end up with:

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, making his presence felt amid speculation about his health, has lashed out at football players sporting long hair, a Japanese newspaper said Monday.

The bouffant-haired dictator was outraged at the hairdos while watching a university match and ordered all men to go clean-cut, the Mainichi Shimbun said in its evening edition, quoting an unnamed source close to the regime.



If you highlight it, it's still pretty easy to read.
