    I was trying to use some BB code (after selecting the use BB code) to include a picture in my signature, and while it says the changes have been saved, they don't appear to actually be saving.

    is this a bug or an intentional setting? and if it's an intentional setting, why is the option available?

    I remember hearing it was not allowed, but they couldn't eliminate the coding from the forum.

    That's a huge thing I loved about working with VB in the past. It was a modular setup created with PHP require/include("");'s. Load up the replybox.php and simply comment out the code that has the image upload / insert button and it's no longer an option!

    VB wasn't exactly user friendly though for non-techies ;)

    I think vB was much easier to navigate and modify than xF. However, I will admit, my interest in online communities was peaked during that time. I think vB 3.7-8.x series was some of the best forum software on the market. Future versions have been [​IMG] .
