phpBB 2.0.8 only allows gif, jpg, and png images to be accessed via the [img] BBCode.

I keep reading that on here, but the one thing I don't see is how to enable bitmap images for the IMG code and more importantly, why not?

first you can't enable it for the bbcode etc. bmp doesn't work with this software.

the reason why, is that bitmap is a windows specific image file format. they don't work very well on the internet, and the file sizes are many many times larger that the same file as a gif, jpg or png file would be.
use the bitmaps on your computer, but convert them to gifs for the web.

luck,
robert
