    Two of the codes work but not as I would have expected. The IMAGE code does fetch the image although very slowly.

    The FORUMINDEX code appears to use the ascending thread numbers starting with 1. Those are really old threads.

    The figure bb code seems to not be working as I expect it to.

    [FLOAT_RIGHT][span][figure="This is a test caption"][ATTACH]561217[/ATTACH][/figure][/span][/FLOAT_RIGHT]

    Perhaps the float code disables it:???: [left]This text should be on the left.[/left]

    The figure bb code seems to not be working as I expect it to.

    This is a test caption. Can captions contain new lines? They seem to be ignored. I wonder what the convention is for captions under the image with respect to the size of the caption.
    Perhaps the float code disables it:???: This text should be on the left.

    Actually, I had a typo in the bb code definition and the closing caption tag was missing.​

    [div]style="width:300px"|[figure="caption for the content in the figure made long to check for wrap"][div] style="border:2px solid #ffff70; text-align:center"|This time the figure contains normal text rather than an attachment or an image.[/div][/figure][/div]

    This time the figure contains normal text rather than an attachment or an image.
    caption for the content in the figure made long to check for wrap

    Figure does not add much value. All of its features are available by simple combinations of div tags. The div tag is from the Encyclopedia parser and uses the vertical bar (solidus) to separate attributes of the tag.

    class="container" |
    class="row" |
    class="col-md-3"|
    Here is some text for the left quarter of this region. I need to make it long enough to be meaningful
    class="col-md-6"|
    This is text for the middle half of the width of this section. It needs more text to illustrate the wrapping into the column. I hope this is enough text.
    class="col-md-3"|
    This begins the text in the right hand column if this works the way I think it does. I am just translating bootstrap into VW syntax.

    It appear that the vw div does not parse class or more likely does not have access to the bootstrap classes.

    Where would one find a list of bb codes that this site accepts, Tom?

    Click on help at the bottom right of the screen. It is just to the left of Rules.
