Thanks. It appears the problem was that I needed to post once before having PM privileges.

Testing new BBCodes.

This is normal text. This is superscript text. This is normal text.

This is normal text. This is subscript text. This is normal text.

You can build a fraction by combining "superscript / subscript" like this:

Code: Select all

[super]1[/super]/[sub]2[/sub]
1/2

Use in a formula:

1 = 1/2 + 1/2

Nice!

While the iron is hot...any chance of adding the Table BBCode. Understood if not, but "nothing ventured, nothing gained." ;)

Thanks for trying, but remember that we also need to support the software. Allowing members to arrange their own HTML elements means that someone will get the order wrong (or leave out an element). With no further internal checks, the page will be incorrectly rendered in your browser.

For example, putting [/table] in the wrong spot will result in the entire thread being stuffed into a table. There's nothing we can do except edit the post causing the error. That's more work for the moderators, and frustration for the members who don't understand what's wrong.

For this reason, I don't think adding tables via BBCode will be helpful.

If you want to discuss further, feel free to bump Tables feature.

Images that I uploaded to postimages.org in recent months have not been working for several days.

Here is one example in the very first post. Only the word "Image" displays. If you start a reply by clicking on quote you can see the actual image link.

Anyone know what might be going on with that site?

Thank you! I assume I need to edit previous posts. Any idea why that change is required?

oh, my word!

Look at that building in the background. It's like a stack of pizza boxes!

There actually are some tall building constructed so that the each floor is sort of "rotated" from that below it. But this building seems a bit random about it. Interesting (to an engineer).
