    are you using Button Bar 1.1

    reverse link and info

    <a href="">link to image site</a>

    you have your link and your info reversed - here is a link

    link to image site

    <img src="" />

    image below (sometimes it is best to start image on a new line or the tag might get broken):


  • Thanks for your reply, yes I'm using Buttonbar 1.1.
    What about the pictures why they arent showing or even bold or italics format?

    Okay the link problem is solved correct?

    now the image

    The images work on my local site when I test with buttonbar.

    copy and paste your image link e.g.

    then hilight image link with mouse then click the image icon. - works on my machine

    do you like the answer?

  • Thanks again, but I still have the same problem the format is correct however when I post links, bold, pictures, or anything is just publish as text with html code.

    I try again and I use the correct format for pictures like you told me however when I publish this is what I see:

    Are you using any other plugins (html formatters e.g. cleditor) that might affect the body of the message? As you mention the tags are not being interpreted and being presented as text. try disabling all other plugins to see if it works.

    Try pasting the code in a code box instead of an image on this board then, someone can cut and paste it.

  • Thanks again, this is the only plugins I'm using

    when I try to copy the code I use on my forum here it works just fine I don't know whats the issue I just install the board yesterday and I haven't made any changes to any configuration files
