From time to time I insert images into my postings to make them more vivid. Is it forbidden to do so here?

If it's not forbidden why some of the images I had inserted have been recently removed?

Regards,
Nikita Kobrin

An oversight in implementing forum upgrade Jun 6, 2003

Use of images in the forums is not forbidden. Due to an oversight on my part, some of our new forum code did not "expect" use of the image (img) tag.

I will correct it. It would help if you can point to an affected thread...

How to insert images? Jun 6, 2003

Would someone please tell me HOW to insert an image in a forum posting? I tried to do this once a long time ago after getting some advice from Natalie, but I never succeeded in doing it.
Also, how do people manage to use bold, italics, different-sized fonts etc. in forum postings? Even if I do the whole thing first in Word and then insert it, all these features disappear.

Hi Jack,

Gianfranco Manca has written an interesting and clear how-to (link available from our profile page in Edit mode --> Edit your profile).

Please, click on Reply with Quote and you'll see what I have entered ...

a little selection.

(Not all code seem to work though)

There's something missing here, isn't it? Jun 6, 2003

We had in the forums a link to the rules of Etiquette (that is still here) but also another to the forum FAQ, and I can't see it any more. I had a look to the general FAQ, but there's no explanation on how to make smilies or change the fonts.

8. Forums
8.1. What are the ProZ.com forums?
8.2. What are the rules of the forums?
8.3. Who can use the forums?
8.4. Are forum postings vetted?
8.5. I can't find my posting.
8.6. Why did my subject line change?
8.7. Can financial topics be discussed?
8.8. Can I make a posting about a bad agency or translator?
8.9. Why can I not use the forums to warn others about a bad agency?
8.10. How can I receive notification of new forum postings (forum tracking)?
8.11. Why are political and controversial topics banned?
8.12. Why did my subject line change?

Thanks, Giuliana Jun 6, 2003

I think it would be easier to find this Tutorial if it were under "Community/Howtos" (it isn't - I've looked) but I found it from your instructions so now I'm seeing if it works for me.

Centering

Bold

Italics

Bigger font

Now I'm trying to combine them

Now I'll post this and see how it comes out.

Bold & Italic worked, center, underline & font size didn't, but that's some progress anyway.

Thanks again.

Hi Henry,

I'm glad to hear pictures are not forbidden.

There're at least two affected threads:

- Anglo-Saxon Attitudes
- Pàñöåíêè â àíãë.-ðóñ. ïàðå

Thanx for the help.
