So you did, Boofo. I just found it (by searching through all your posts - why didn't you post a link here?) and I've downloaded it and marked as installed.

What is disappointing is that I searched high and low, including using the search function, and couldn't find it before I started this thread.

Not to worry. I now have it and will certainly use it. I like the facility to change background color too. Good work. Thanks.

Best wishes

The code you use, will cause a validation error since the image tag isn't closed. I added the " /" to close it. But you can always add ></img> to the end of the tag.

All you have to do is check the profile and all the coder's hacks are listed there.

I didn't want to step on the thread with any shameless advertising.

Which is actually better?

I just checked my code and it has the /> at the end of it.

I usually use the /> at the end so that it closes. I actually don't know which one is better... It is just habit for me to use the />.

Same here. I thought that was the only accepted way to do it, actually. I didn't think you could use a closing image tag like </img>.

As a non-coder, I am reluctant to enter into this new discussion as to which method is better. I'm just grateful to both of you for trying to help others achieve what in my opinion is a much classier way of posting images - by wrapping text around them.

Hats off to both of you. Wish I could code. Even after years of running vB sites, I can only go in and make small changes and do things by trial and error. Horses for courses, I guess.

Best wishes

We've all been there. I still have those days when you are probably a better coder than I will ever be.

And you're very welcome, sir.

I believe you can do closing tags for ALL HTML tags. But I think since nothing goes in between the > and </img> that it is just accepted as /> so that the browser does a little less rendering.

We have all been there. I was there at age 14, but now at age 16, with some hard work, concentration, and dedication I can code. LOL. But if you really want to, you could sit down for a couple of weeks and learn. Resources are everywhere.

And you can always come back for help...

King Kovifor, I actually thought you were older than that.

Nope. Born September 4th, 1991. I am just super mature for my age. LOL.

"/>" simply means "close the tag off like a normal end tag but I'm too lazy so I use this shortcut" . Seriously though, both "/>" and "</img>" will work and mean the same, the first looks somewhat neater though.
