Is there a way to use HTML in the forum - when I post, the indicator to the left of the screen is always "HTML is:Off". I can not seem to enable it in the preferences - are we able to do it either from the preferences or in the actual posting?

Did some research and it looks like the forum is running on a very old version of phpBB. If it were to be upgraded to the current version we still wouldnt get the ability to post in HTML, but we could use BBCode colors to make something look similar, especially if we customised the style to use a black background....

Any chance of an upgrade?

Looks like we can post images though - so if you do a screenshot of your client - or replay your log (depending on your client) and convert what you want to show to an image you should be able to upload it. I'm going to go try that now actually - and yes I am "Spades"

So as long as you can get an image file onto a file sharing site then you can do it!

Even if html can be enabled in this version, I doubt anyone has the admin/mod privileges to do so since Foddy's untimely demise.



I don't know the background to this statement but what do you mean ? A site with no admin!!!! That does not bode well.......

I don't know the background to this statement either, but I would be interested to know why it is being said.
