        Following LadyGeek's suggestions.

        Test of editing quoted reply, formatting tools, and BBCode options. Seems to be working in this post.

        Double-checked forum setting:
        User Control Panel-->Board Preferences-->Edit Posting Defaults:
        Enable BBCode by default -- Yes
        Enable Smilies by default -- Yes
        Looks good.

        However quoted reply, formatting tools, and BBCode options are not available when I attempt to edit this post: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=120&p=1226898#p1226826

        Deleted cookies and browser cache.
        Test edit of non-working post above.
        Still not working.

        Will log out today and try again tomorrow after I reboot computer and login to forum.

        Bottom line. The tools and options seems to work in other places but above post... so no biggie.

        I can't get this to work. Any ideas?
        Copy the first URL into a browser to see what I am trying to do.

        http://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?e^x=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{x^n\over n!}
        [img]http://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?e^x=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{x^n\over%20n!}[/img]
        [url]http://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?e^x=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{x^n\over n!}[/url]
        [img][url]http://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?e^x=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{x^n\over%20n!}[/url][/img]

        That URL is not in a format recognized by phpBB (the forum software).

        Why doesn't it work? Everything after the question mark is an input into a program on their server which interprets the equation and renders the image shown. The problem is that many of those characters have special meaning to the underlying interpreter, e.g. PHP. The forum software (phpBB) rejects the format because of those characters.

        However, if you have PHP installed (most likely if you develop web-based applications...) you can reformat the URL to turn those special characters into ASCII representation and avoid the problem.

        Code: Select all
        <?php
        $test = urlencode("e^x=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{x^n\over%20n!");
        echo $test;
        ?>

        Then, replace everything after the "?" with the output.

        Code: Select all
        [img]http://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?e%5Ex%3D%5Csum_%7Bn%3D0%7D%5E%7B%5Cinfty%7D%7Bx%5En%5Cover%2520n%21[/img]

        It does work using the URL above. However, CodeCogs Terms of Use (12. Access to the Service) prevent linking to anything from their site, so I removed the working image.

        (Update: Clarified explanation of reformatting the URL. You can copy the working code into the Edit Post box and hit "Preview" to see the image. Just don't hit "Submit".)

        LadyGeek, thanks for the explanation. I'm not a computer person, I was just trying something I'd seen somewhere.

        Are you saying we wouldn't be allowed to use this, even if it worked?

        Also, is there any way to display LaTeX on this forum?

        According to CodeCogs Terms of Use (12. Access to the Service) and (14. Proprietary Rights), express written permission is needed to use anything from the site. Sorry, but only material that's allowed under fair use is permitted in this forum (see Policies and Etiquette (Quoting outside material)). If you think I'm misinterpreting CodeCogs' Terms of Use, please let me know.

        LaTex is not supported by phpBB. There are a few experimental modifications available, but nothing which is guaranteed to work all the time (no released mods). We only use software that's well supported and guaranteed to work. This means LaTex can't be displayed in this forum.

        Alternatively, you can use a word processor to create the equations (also try Google Docs: Google Docs Has an Equation Editor). Then, perhaps you can then upload the resulting image to a filesharing site. I don't have any better answers than that.

        syntax I used {quote="{url}http://www.yahoo.com{/url}"}stuff{/quote} where you need to replace { with [ and } with ].

        Thanks for showing interest.

        Yes, I was looking at that and also checking the automatic parsing of URLs -- They are not parsed inside quotes while they are parsed in other places. The BBCode parser seems to have a lot of odd properties.

        Is there some reason I can't get:

        Code: Select all
        [url=linkA.html][img]linkB.jpg[/img][/url]


        to produce a clickable image? It doesn't show the image at all when I try this, but instead link-ifies the entire string inside the url tags:

        Code: Select all
        [img]linkB.jpg[/img]


        See?

        [img=100x50]http://www.test.com/linkB.jpg[/img]

        You need to put the full URL inside the img tags:

        Code: Select all
        [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/63/Wikipedia-logo.png[/img]

        will produce:

        Thanks - I did have the full url inside the img tags, but couldn't get the url to nest with the img inside. There was a separate problem that my browser security needed to whitelist bbcode.org for requests, so I think it was actually showing the pictures to everyone else but just not to me. Anyway, I figured it out.

        I had the same question a few months ago. Here's the thread: http://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=94511&hilit=lawman

        The right answer for us turned out to be Schwab. They allow parents to open a Custodial IRA with a $100 account minimum and no monthly fees. And they have decent index funds.

        What step is that? I have over 12,000 posts, and not one has ever been approved. Quite a few have been disapproved, and some have even been deleted completely, sometime alone or sometimes as part of whole threads, but I don't ever remember an "approval step." Do you have a reference in forum policy or FAQ? Perhaps first time posters are reviewed to avoid spam, but I am under the impression that that comes later. Your member status must be approved, but if you weren't a member, you wouldn't have been able to compose your post in the first place.

        No, once I made the post (that was after my account was approved), it said an admin will be approving it. I think that's to stop spammers when a new member makes a post.

        Perhaps first time posters are reviewed to avoid spam, but I am under the impression that that comes later. Your member status must be approved, but if you weren't a member, you wouldn't have been able to compose your post in the first place.

        No, once I made the post (that was after my account was approved), it said an admin will be approving it. I think that's to stop spammers when a new member makes a post.

        Thanks for the information. I was just guessing above about new posters needing approval because of spam, but didn't really think it was true. Now I know different. Maybe I need to read the policy and faq again; yes, I think I do.

        If you aren't getting posts deleted, you are not being aggressive enough in yer posts. You are losing out to inflation. ;)

        Testing posting an image (jpeg) and a pdf of the same image.

        [img]
        [/img]

        I'm trying to copy and paste an image of a table. Not working. I'll see what others have done.
        After 10 minutes of reading older posts . . .
        AHA! One cannot copy and paste an image yet from one's computer yet, one has to save it on the web and point to it. OK.

        Wiki article link: Posting images in the Bogleheads forum (If the image needs no editing, but it is not yet on a Web page)

        (Update: I see you figured it out.)

        Trying again to post an image:

        Image


        Image



        After a few trys I got it. I had to resize the image and use a whole number to denote the percentage, not a decimal equivalent.

        For the wiki, use the actual URL - which is your 2nd img entry. The first one points to the web page - which is why it's not displayed.
