Re: Posting images with BBCode I tried the examples, none was effective.

Please, do mozillaZine Forums support any method of scaling an image?

Waterfox help is here.

Waterfox is unrelated.

The question is about mozillaZine Forums support for BBCode.

This, for example, not effective:

The sarcasm is misplaced. Truly, Waterfox is unrelated. The screenshot of the preview of a post was a screenshot of Firefox.

I'll appreciate an answer to the question about BBCode.

With respect: I followed Frank Lion's example, which did not specify a size. That's why it's huge, and that's why I politely opened this topic.

Does mozillaZine Forums support for img not include support for specifying a size?

Please, can anyone exemplify what I want without using postimg? Using https://s.put.re/Ccnh9nwY.png

Really, all I need to know is the syntax for the BBCode.

Nope. But all proper image upload sites will resize or thumbnail pics for you.

Many, like postimage, also do desktop programs that let you do screenshots and upload in just a couple of clicks, i.e. 19 seconds for me to take and upload this -
