I'll have a proper look tomorrow, but I would hazard a guess that the image you're trying to link to is too big - big images mess up the formatting of the site. Try with a smaller image and see if that helps.

I have Caroline and tried from different source. I even tried telling it what size the image is too. No worries, I just thought I'd say something in case it's not just me being daft xxxx :flowerface:

I'm useless with picture sizes etc but I find this site plus trial and error and the 'preview' button quite helpful.

We have had to restrict the size of images that can be linked using the img tags, and it looks as though there is a known bug in the forum software that shows up when this restriction is introduced.

I have an idea for a work-around, which I will work on sometime this week.

You should find that the img tags are working properly again now. :thumbs:

If anyone notices any other images (ie not ones in posts or blogs) on the forum appearing to be smaller than they should be, please let me know!

A very belated reminder that if the board seems to be showing the wrong time for you, you need to go into your profile (link in the blue bar at the top of the page), choose 'Board Preferences' from the menu on the left, and make sure the line that says 'Summer Time/DST is in effect:' is showing as 'yes'.
