Good to see all of this information in one place, Av. May I suggest pinning it to the top of Forum Issues?

Can you provide an example on how to use this properly? I've had it not work properly one or two times on me due to typing error I'm sure.

Thanks, I always tried it using html coding. Guess it doesn't work the same.

No, because it is .css coding.

I would think it's ASP 'coding', with regex being used to discover & parse bbcode (aka: avboard tags).

I could be wrong though.

No, also wrong. The ASP script parses the "avtags" using code I wrote myself. Regex isn't always that great a solution.

Can you give an example of this as well? I've played around with it a few times trying to get it to work, but it always shows up blank when I try to use it.

The likely cause is that you're using IMG tags inside the GALLERY tags, not PIC tags.

Another good tip: Find a post that looks like what you want to do. Click on "reply with quote" in that person's post, and see the code that they used to get the effect you're after. It's worked for me several times.

Edit: grammar.
