And because we appreciate that not everyone wants their bandwidth cluttered up with images, we've also given you the option to turn the feature off using the My Forum section of your profile:
If you don't want to see the nasty images, just choose 'render as link' and you'll just see a link. The same goes for the forum smileys which will appear as text. If you want to use the previous forum editing tools choose 'Basic Editor'.
If you do fancy using the new forum features, you'll find a whole load of new buttons above the reply box at the bottom of the forum. Most of them are pretty self-explanatory and the nice thing is that it's now 'wisywyg', so if you format a phrase in bold, it appears in bold, which is nice.
